Anime Characters Database

The Anime Characters Database (ACDB) is a community database dealing pri- marily with anime characters, though characters sharing an 'anime aesthetic' from other mediums, such as original art, video games, and manga, are also in- cluded. ACDB refers to itself as a 'visual search engine', and indexes characters according to a specific set of traits, such as hair and eye color, age, and type of clothing worn.
