Automate Your Anime Collection

Shoko, previously known as JMM (Japanese Media Manager) is an anime cataloging program designed to automate the entire process of cataloging your anime collection regardless of of the size and number of files in your collection. Where other anime cataloging programs rely on perfectly named files or force you to manually link a file to the correct episode, Shoko does this all automatically with minimal user intervention. Let Shoko do all the heavy lifting by removing these tedious and time consuming tasks so you actually watch your collection instead of just maintaining it.

Incredibly Easy To Use

Import your entire collection in just two steps by simply adding your import folders and clicking run import.

We're not kidding when we say we designed Shoko to be as easy to use as possible. What's the point of removing the tedious processes other cataloging programs make you do if we just add our own? Of course we also provide a ton of options for advanced users allowing each user to have their desired setup.

How Does Shoko Really Work?

Shoko hashes each file in your collection and sends the hash to AniDB for comparison. When a match is found, the series is created in your database and metadata from supported data gathering sites is downloaded and compiled for use within Shoko providing detailed information about each file and its associated series. In the rare chance there ever is a problem with the automated process, Shoko includes a wide array of advanced tools to identify and properly catalog any file that was unable to be automatically processed.
