Pixiv Fetcher is a Greasemonkey script written by Merun which will add romanized name to Pixiv pages. This includes member pages and image pages.

How does it work?

  • Script retrieves the artist id from the page.
  • Script send a request to my database server ( Not E-shuushuu )
  • Script puts the name below the avatar if the id is in the database

The database used relies on the wiki. However it's not updated in real time as some manual treatment is needed. As of now, 16 484 artists are in the database, which is a bit less than the real number on the wiki. Please note that the wiki doesn't reflect necessarily the artist tags of E-shuushuu.
