=Basic Episode Information===Episode Number==Be careful with different episode orders here. For the moment the Japanese "how it was supposed to be shown" order is our standard. ==Type===
*Normal Episode
*Special/Extra Episode <i>''(DVD Specials, Bonus eps)<'' ''(S1, S2, ...)''**Live-action bonus material included with a BD/DVD release are classified as S episodes.**Live-action material that was released standalone should not be added; rare exceptions may apply.**Do '''not''' add BD/DVD menus.**Do '''not''' add advertisements / commercials that do not advertise the anime itself. For example, do not add commercials for Gundam Wing figurines as an S episode to the Gundam Wing anime entry.***Advertisements /i>commercials for the anime itself are added to T episodes.*Opening/EndingEpisode ''(C1, C2, ...)''**Refer to our [[Content:C_Episode_Guidance|C Episode Guidance]] page for details.{{CollapseBlock|Given that the C Episode Guidance page is currently under construction, the current, deprecated guidance is kept here for reference.|content={{eyecatch|Note|Do '''''NOT''''' add a separate episode for creditless openings/Themeendings. Set the creditless flag in the video track of the '''file''' instead. We don't want creditless and non-creditless as separate episode entries.<br>The '''ONLY VALID''' naming template is Opening (1,2,...,n), Ending (1,2,...,n). In case if the same song is used with a significantly different video or the same video is used with a different song, append letters after the numbers e.g. Opening 1a, Opening 1b. For foreign OP/Credits EpisodeED episodes, if they differ from the original Japanese versions, append the country name before Opening (1,2,...,n), Ending (1,2,...,n).<br>PVs (music video for the song) go under Other episodes, but only if they were released as part of the anime DVD/BD.<br>"Long/full" versions of the OP or ED should be added under Special episode unless they were actually used within a regular episode.<br>If the OP/ED song is played and credits are shown, but the video is still that of the regular episode, then it's NOT an OP/ED episode (rather common in last episodes as sort of an epilogue).<br>OP/ED episode's display name will be automatically changed to the song played in that OP/ED if the song has the appropriate OP/ED episode number relation added. It will also automatically display the episode range the OP/ED is played in if the song has those episode ranges added.<br>OP/ED episodes, like any other episode, should have the air date, which would be the air date of the episode they were first played in.}}}}*Trailer/Promo/Adv EpisodeCommercial ''(T1, T2, ...)''*Parody/Fansub Episode''(P1, P2, ...)''*Other Episode <i>''([[Files:Multi-episode filesofficial repackages such as the {{short|a9127|MultiPsycho-ep]] and [[Files:Split-episode files|Split]]Pass New Edit}}, US Chopjobs, Supportfiles certain supportfiles (AC3 modpacks, fontpacks).)''

=Ordering of S Episodes -- GENERAL GUIDANCE=There are no ''hard rules'' regarding the ordering of S episodes. However, the following general rules of thumb should be applied:# ''"Actual episodes"'' should come first before recaps. Example: {{eyecatcha|Note:6327|Bakemonogatari}} episodes 13 to 15 (S1 to S3)# ''"Recaps"'' should come first before "Otherspecials" is NOT meant for OST. Example: {{a|12014|91 Days}} episode S2# 's, Manga, AMV's or any other not official Special!<br> PV"Specials"'s are NOT allowed if they weren't on the Specials (e.g. web streamed specials, DVD (R1and BD bonus content, R2etc) as a special!}}should come first before live action entries.
===Episode Name (English)===Further to the above, the following overall guidance should be used to group and order the above subgroups:Check * Internally within the official page if it's licensedabove categories, if it's not use group like items together. Example: {{a translation of |9227|Girls und Panzer}} specials, similar specials are grouped together (e.g. the romaji/kanji title.<br>If you have neither use: "Episode XXWar" where XX is BD specials, Tank Courses, Character Pictures, etc)* Internally within the number of the episode.<br>above grouped like items, sort episodes by release date
<i>for OVA's (complete ep#=1)</i><br>if there is no real ep title (aka when the ep title = Above all else, common sense should apply. These are general guidelines, and each anime title) just name the ep OVA<br><i>for Movies</i><br>See: [[Content:Movies|Movie Guideline]]should be looked at on a case-by-case basis.
=Guidance for O episodes==Play Length=General Guidance==O episodes are not intended as proper episode entries. O episodes are used as a placeholder for entries that are a chopjob, re-cut, or other combination of regular (R), special (S), Opening/Closing (C), and/or Trailer/Promo (T) episode types.# To ensure that mylist statistics work correctly, it is '''mandatory''' that all files contained in O episodes are also assigned other episodes using file-episode relations.## Use file-episode relations to mark which episode(s) the official play lenght O episode covers.## Assign percentages based on how much of the target episode this file covers. For example, if an O episode covers time timestamps from 20% to 40% of episode 1, and timestamps from 65% to 90% of episode 2, add these as the percentages in the file-episode relations.# If an O episode covers multiple regular episodes, for example a single release covers episode 1, 2, and 3 of the main series, '''THIS IS NOT AN O EPISODE'''. Instead, add the file to episode 1, and create file-episode relations to episode2 and 3.
===Recap=Movies subsequently redistributed in TV series format==This field should Some anime series are distributed in both a movie and a TV series format with minimal edits between each other, except for the addition of opening and ending segments; the first airing or screening of the anime determines the anime type set on the anime entry as is usual. In case of a movie released also in an episodic format, the episodic version is to be added using a set of O (Other) episodes. Files for a TV distribution like this are expected to be added into said O episodes. However, to make mylist statistics for said anime to work correctly, it is '''mandatory''' to also assign the file to the episode entry of the relevant movie, using an additional file-episode relation; there is no difference in treatment from the general guidance. The start and end positions saved into this relation also make the part number inside the movie entry explicit. Therefore, notes such as "Part X of Y" are generally considered both duplication of information and an unwelcome complexity. Use of these types of notes are discouraged, especially given that the average user usually only get used for pure recaps!cares about the TV edit episode number in these circumstances. These notes can be allowed if their use clearly adds clarity to the case, but always ask a mod first before adding such notes.
=Other Info===First Aired/Released Date=={{main|Content:Anime#General Guidance}}{{#lsth:Content:Anime|General Guidance}}====Japanese TV Schedule Timestamps== Optional Info ==We'd like you to add Be careful with shows that have 24:00 and later air hours - this info sooner means that show will air on the night after the specified date. For the purposes of AniDB, a show listed as airing between 00:00 and 23:59 is added with the listed date; any show airing on 24:00 or later to is added with the "first aired" date of the episode since some other users will benefit from your work''next day''.
