Using pip

# Linux/macOS
python3 -m pip install -U animec

# Windows
py -3 -m pip install -U animec


$ git clone
$ cd animec
$ python3 install


A ratelimit has been added to avoid stressing the module. If that ratelimit is bypassed, then you risk getting your IP banned temporarily from making requests. So it’s recommended not to try any such practice.
