Searching for a specific anime from an ID is necessary.
Return an empty object if no anime is found with the ID specified.
This feature would make it easier to target specific anime information, and would also make it a great way to find random anime (get a random number, and boom).

I don't think they are going to fix this API let alone add more features. We just have to wait for new one which is bound to come some day, you can always do some html scrapping in the meantime ^^

Yeah, unfortunately shows like "K" prove to be problematic :D
You can always write your own api... it's not.... that bad...
Thanks for quote though, my notification (scrapping level => extreme) system seems to be working ok ^^
Oh god, I didn't know about that anime. I'm just going to hope none of my users watch that, or any kind of similar one or two lettered anime.

There is a quirky way to get ID -> anime translation by downloading the site's sitemaps like myanimelist.net/sitemap/anime-000.xml, searching for line with /<ID>/ in it and then replacing "_"s in the corresponding URL's path to get the name (the filesize for manga ~5Mb and anime ~2Mb).
The thing is that it's not just spaces that are replaced by an underscore. It's also colons and exclamation marks as well.
I didn't know about the XML feature. I couldn't find it though, with the URL you provided. What can be an example URL?
but both didn't work.
worked, but it only shows the information until number 884. What about the rest?
