Anime Randomizer

Generate your own randomized anime series

About the randomizer

This page isn’t widely advertised because it doesn’t do a whole lot right now. As you might know, Crunchyroll removed the "Random" button from their interface within the last year or so, and I don’t think there are any plans to include it in their upcoming UI overhaul. There is still a link you can visit which relies on their API to redirect you to a random anime, but there’s no telling whether or not this API will remain available to the public.

So, Colin is silently working in the background on a custom AniMonday Randomizer. Right now the page will properly pull simple data for one random anime series that is watchable on Crunchyroll. It uses the Kitsu API, which has been effortless to implement, and gives me the functionality to only return results that are available on certain streaming services. This will effectively replicate the Crunchyroll randomizer and future-proof an important component of our podcast!
