Discovering the name of the anime by an image
Usually you try to know the name of a particular anime when you find an interesting image on social networks, but no one speaks the name. There are several ways to know the name of an anime by the images.
If you use the google chrome browser, just right-click and choose search image on Google. By doing this, you will come across multiple sites quoting the source of this image.
Simply select the anime images by browsing the google image, until you see some reference or name of the anime present on the pages with the image or even in the image description itself on Google.
If you use another browser, you can google by Reverse Image Search that these sites perform the same function as your Chrome browser. Perhaps the other browser also offers an extension to this.
If you use Telegram, you can send the image to some of the bots below that perform the same function:
- @WhatAnimeBot – Allows you to find the anime and episode of an image;
- @YaMelodyBot – Discover song name;
- @reversesearchbot – Does a reverse image search;
Discovering the name of the anime by Akinator
Another way to find out the name of an anime, series, and movie or even the name of a character is using Akinator. If you vaguely remember the character, just answer the questions and get an answer.
Akinator is a website where a genius asks questions based on variables to hit the character you’re thinking of. Usually it displays the character’s name along with anime name.
He may not mention the name of the anime. In these cases just search the character’s name on Google. He may also end up wrong a few times if he’s a very unknown character.
Discovering the name with little information
If you want to remember the name of the anime for little information, you may need to make a long browsing on informative sites such as animelist, wikipedia, and other databases.
I remember I heard a lot of a song in my childhood called Hey Ya! Unfortunately this song got lost and I didn’t know her name at all when I was 16, but I really wanted to know.
Unfortunately I didn’t find the name of the song by the lyrics for wrongwriting the chorus and the phrases I remembered from the song. I just knew that such a song was the subject of an annual Nickelodeon event.
I searched year for year on the Wikipedia pages of the Kids’ Choice Awards event, until I found the name of the song Hey Ya! – Outkast. It was a very great satisfaction to find the name of this song.
If you know the year the anime was released, you can search the myanimelist. If you remember the studio that the anime was displayed, you can search the studio page on wikipedia, or do a search by genre.
Any information you have, may be relevant to find the name of the anime, series, or dorama. Both have a web page with information that you can filter and find using google.
I’ve already found anime names writing some English features on Google. Maybe that might help you! The information present in English is much greater than the information in Portuguese.
Ask for help in an online community
Today it’s easy to remember the name of an anime, series or dorama. If none of the previous alternatives helped you remember the name of the work, simply ask for help online through groups on social networks and online forums.
I realized that many turn to Yahoo Answers, others look on facebook itself or youtube channel. No matter what, never give up on finding the work you’re looking for, but you don’t remember.
