Description

PLEASE NOTE:

This is NOT an app where you can watch anime!

-----------

Next Anime Episode (NAE) is the best anime episode countdown app for iOS.

Next Anime Episode does one job: To help you keep track of airing anime and when they will have a new episode available in Japan.

Generally, sub based simulcast streaming services have the newest episodes available within one hour after they air in Japan.

Simply browse the currently airing chart, select which anime you are interested in, and you will receive a notification when a new episode for your selected series is available. It's that easy! You can also monitors what will be airing next, as Next Anime Episode will show you your anime series sorted by the closest episode first.

FEATURES:
- Instant notifications when a new episode airs.
- Easy access to view all the anime that is airing this season in Japan, to let you easily pick which ones you are interested in.
- The Notifications are highlighted with a badge to help you keep track of what you are interested in but haven't watched yet. You can mark Episodes as "Watched" anytime. Doing so also decreases the notification count.
- Monitor what episodes will air next, as they are displayed in order of closest next episode in the Watching tab.

PRO FEATURES:
- Monitor more than 3 series at once.
- Change the notification tone to any of the provided options.
- Change the anime title display language. Handy if you prefer to see the titles in their original language (Japanese), pure English, or Romaji.
- Any new pro features in upcoming releases will be unlocked with one purchase.

______________________________

v2.0.1 RELEASE NOTES:

Happy new year! Although NAE has been grumpy, literally, about it, and even swore to people.

Really sorry about that. Not sure how that string made it to the app and caused so many bugs.

It is fixed now.

______________________________

v2.0.0 RELEASE NOTES:

A significant portion of the app has been rewritten to minimize the amount of chart and notification related bugs. The app will now do everything locally, with the exception of fetching the anime chart from the internet.

As a consequence of this, your data will be migrated to a new format. Unfortunately, notifications that are currently in your Notifications tab cannot be migrated at this time.

Changelog:

* [FEATURE] You can now see anime series by season and year in the Chart tab. You can view series from almost any year starting on 2000.
* [TWEAK] Because the notifications system has been revamped, you now need to allow the app to run in the background (don't "swipe up" to kill from your app tray) in order to receive notifications. You also need to have background refresh enabled.
* [TWEAK] The Chart tab will now list the data in sections: TV series, movies, specials, and more.
* [TWEAK] The Watching tab now groups anime by airing time. Anime airing in the current day will be displayed at the top. Anime that finished airing will always be displayed before everything else.
* [TWEAK] The Chart and Watching tabs will no longer show a real time countdown for the next episode. This feature was very buggy, and maybe unnecessary. Instead, you will see the number of days, hours, or minutes left until the episode airs, depending on how close its airing time is.
* [TWEAK] The Chart tab will now indicate when an anime has finished airing. You will not be able to add these anime to your Watching tab.
* [BUG] Fixes a small issue that showed images in the Notifications tab to distort when they are too wide.
