No, Anime Doctor isn't a virtual medical app where you can submit your ailments for online appraisal nor is it the home of an online vet. For the uninitiated, Anime began as a Japanese art form from the early part of the 20th Century. However, since the 1960's it has become one of the fastest moving and most influential art movements of our time. Anime, and the  Manga magazines that put it on the street, reflects populist art and design that has not only inspired much of Disney's recent work but often gives an insight into Japanese society that is hidden from other media forms. Anime Doctor is a beautifully designed free multimedia Encyclopedia Brittanica of Anime for iOS that is packed with over 7000 animations. It is without doubt the ultimate Anime app reference.
It would  be easy to call Anime Doctor “the official anime encyclopedia” for its convenience and ease of access to an immense database of anime information. Indeed, no other app comes close to providing the level of detailed information that this one serves up with thousands of images and information on Anime as well as the characters themselves. This beautifully made and unparalleled entertainment app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch gives you the ability to access and discover decades of extraordinary and inspiring Japanese animation right in the palm of your hand. The immense Anime Doctor™ database is packed with over 7000 anime and 47,000 characters belonging to their respective anime  with most containing pictures, descriptions, associated voice actors (seiyuu) with photos, episode appearances and more. Further illustrating the colossal Anime Doctor™ database, there are also over 129,000 episode titles in multiple languages with information.  From the moment that you launch Anime Doctor™ you will find a stunning collection of featured anime covers, that are each hand-selected and updated regularly. Every anime title that is browsed has a radiantly rendered cover photo and  a graphical 1 to 5 star average rating. Hit the “more information” button and the page elegantly peels back to reveal details such as alternative titles, anime type, year of the Anime, official website, series description and much more!
I see and review an awful lot of apps but rarely does one come across an app quite as beautiful and comprehensive as Anime Doctor. Whether you have an interest in this art form or not, it's hard to believe that you won't be intoxicated by the beauty of the drawings as well as the complexity of background material that this virtual encyclopedia comes up with. It's not only glorious to look at but it's easy to navigate too and even better than that, it's totally free. I think I can pretty well guarantee you won't find an anime app better.
