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 processing is required. Please note that the wiki doesn't reflect necessarily the artist tags of E-shuushuu.

Also, the name on E-shuushuu are not necessarily the display name on Pixiv which can change at all time. Instead, we use, if possible, a stable name, like real name from the artist website, etc.

To Do

  • Improve the conversion process as some articles with special characters are ignored ( no impact for end user )


  • Adding artist directly from Pixiv
  • User Access Control
  • Back office

The following features are still being considered

  • Link to wiki/tag?
  • Add name to favorite list?
  • Reverse linking to Pixiv?
  • Track script usage by script unique id. No log, just number of request per day per script?

Known issues

  • Some article on the wiki also include the E-shuushuu tag in the "name" field.
  • Some article might not be extracted from the wiki.
