Shukofukurou 2.3 coming soon with native VisionOS support. Manage your AniList/MyAnimeList/Kitsu on the Vision Pro, along with some various fixes and improvements, since it’s been two years since we last released an update.
An Update and Why the Lack of Updates?
You might be wondering, where are the development for Hachidori, MAL Updater OS X and Kanimanabu? Why is development slow these days. Since I don’t have as much free time as I used to. Now that I left Twitter, now known as X and managed two servers on the Fediverse (Mastodon and Misskey), it took up a good chunk of my time along will preparing for the JLPT. Re
Added ListenBrainz support to OnagakuKiroku, which is a Mac program that allows you to track what you listened, with maloja before.
Now, we added ListenBrainz support to the 1.0-alpha 3 release (yes, it's been over 3 years since the last release) and it's possible to use both at the same time, it has to be enabled individually.
The 1.0-alpha3 release is available on Github.
It's been a while, but there were some issues with the offline queue functionality with Hachidori.
We just implemented some fixes so scrobbling Anime to AniList/MAL/Kitsu when the user goes back online doesn't end up in an endless loop, especially when an update requires confirmation before they are applied to the user's list.
While there hasn’t been much development work lately since I am busy with life, I’m slowly getting back to updating Shukofukurou for iOS. There hasn’t been much development because I don’t have anything in mind to implement yet, until now.
We plan to ditch iOS/iPadOS 15 support, and we possibly need to rewrite the HTTP backend to use Alamofire as AFNetworking, which I found out is deprecated. Also, it doesn’t compile for VisionOS natively.
We also tested Shukofukurou for iOS on Vision Pro Simulator, and it works. However, I want to add native support down the time, when I eventually get one next year. How cool it will be to manage your Anime and Manga list from your Apple Vision Pro.
More coming soon.

This feature will be available with Hachidori 3.3.16, coming soon. We will be working on possibly adding Jellyfin support and working to improve accessibility with voiceover on Shukofukurou for iOS in the next release, in a long time coming.
We are releasing Hachidori 3.3.15 today and it should be available in software updates now. Release notes aren't uploaded yet, but can be seen here:
Patrons Only Update - Development Updates and Goals - Second Half of 2023
The current Beta release will be the stable release coming out tomorrow. My next goal is to add Mastodon sharing support when I have free time. Also, I need to check if WaniKani adding Kana Vocabulary broke the WaniKani support in KaniManabu. The app needs some love, especially an iOS version as well. Haven't been able to work on it since I'm busy with my blog and other things.
If anyone is unaware, MyAnimeList has suffered a hacking attempt. As a result, MyAnimeList functionality will not work. However, Kitsu and AniList will continue to work as normal.
Do not submit any issues relating to MyAnimeList being down. We will announce something once it comes back online.
A new stable release update should roll out this month.
Still figuring what updates to make to Shukofukurou, as I can't really think of anything at the moments and the apps are still stable and usable under the latest versions of iOS/iPadOS and MacOS, besides cross-service list syncing.
While its very late, 3.3.15-beta6 of Hachidori is now released, which fixes Plex Server detection.
We hope to have Mastodon support working in the near future.
Hopefully we will get Mastodon support working this weekend. The hurdle is getting OAuth working, but after that everything else should be easy.
We have confirmed the title correction fix and it was working properly from our test file.
Hachidori 3.3.15-beta 5 is now out, will be on software updates for Hachidori with Beta channel enabled shortly.
Hachidori 3.3.15-beta 5 will be released later today, fixing title correction and directory black/white list to support subdirectories.
(Patron Only) Development Updates - February 26. 2023 - https://www.patreon.com/posts/development-26-79233925
A new Testflight build for Shukofukurou for iOS is now out to replace the expiring build. There is no changes at the moment. Once we get Mastodon support working in Hachidori, we will add it to the test builds of Shukofukurou for iOS.
A New Beta version of Hachidori will be out to fix directory black and white lists to support subdirectories. We still need to fix the title correction issues that came up in the near future.
Hachidori 3.3.15-beta 3 is now released.
Hachidori 3.3.15 Beta 3 is being released soon to fix file name recognition. Apparently, numbers that are part of the title are being detected as season numbers, thus making titles incorrectly detected or fail all together.
