  • Download Termux from Fdroid
  • Download mpv-player from playstore

In termux install python using pkg install python Follow the same steps as above for downloading anime-cli

When asked to enter the video-player change it to xdg-open which will automatically open mpv-player.


I recently found out about ani-cli, but it was not cross-platform because it was written in shell, so I decided to recreate that same thing in Python, hoping to make it cross-platform and possibly also have pretty UI.


  • Stream on browser
  • Make streaming on browsers ad free
  • Stream to video player like MPV
  • Ability to download the shows as mp4
  • Support for multiple mirrors
