Frequently Asked Questions

Is Jikan really free?

Yes, the first plan is USD 0.00 forever and it will not change. This free plan includes all the features of Jikan for 1 active project. Once you are done with a project, you can archive it and create a new active project. The free plan allows you to have one active project at a time, you could therefore have an unlimited amount of archived projects. Once you need to work on more active projects, then you must upgrade to a paid plan.
