< report >For most fields, the ~ operator does a case-insensitive substring match. For the 'search' filters it currently uses the same algorithm as the site search (which is substring search with some normalization and query parsing).

< report >it's pretty unique for a public api to be so accessible and thorough. usually sites hide such functionality behind a paywall or throw some obstacles your way (*cough* anidb *cough*) that discourage you from working with them.
