Thank @FoxInFlame . I am making a window program for my own use. Its very simple that only get search results. for now I am using official API which returns XML data. Since I am just a newbie programmer I can only use that for now. But official API dont retrun <Genres> so that its quite inconvenience

Already noticed the space thing. But sometimes the same happens while using the space (eg, "steins+gate" or "steins%20gate"), and I know I have occasionally received successful responses for "steinsgate".

Something is wonky inside the MAL API and I'm just happy someone confirmed they have the same problem, because otherwise I'g just go crazy.

@Sk98 There is not a way for the official API to work like the Web search. If you want to search like that, you have to use an unofficial API. I use one that I made myself, the matomari API.

Just don't use this though, because I change the code every few days, and it's not done yet. Use a better stable faster API, like Atarashii.

@npstr It looks like the link doesn't work if there are no results. Inserting a space between steins and gate returned 2 results, but trying 'steins gate123' returned an empty one, like yours.

For example

Yes. What I mean is API search method dosen't work like Web search method - returns results

Using API feels like you have to know the exact name of the anime. My question is that if there is a way to work API like Web search method.
