# If there is no official title for that language, use a translation of the official title from the production language (JP/KO/ZH).
# If there is no official title for that language, use a translation of the official title from the production language (JP/KO/ZH).
# '''For English language main titles only''': If there is also no official title in the production language, use the following scheme:
 
## TV series main episodes: Use "Episode XX" where XX is the number of the episode.
After finding (or not finding) an applicable title, proceed to the next section on how to apply the title to each episode type.
## OVA and OAD main episodes: Use "OVA"/"OAD" if there is only one volume, otherwise use "Volume XX".
 
## Movies main episodes: "Complete Movie" if there is only one, "Movie XX" if there are more than one.
====Applying Episode Titles: General Policy====
## Web series main episodes: Use "Web" if there is only one episode, otherwise use "Episode XX". "Short Movie", "Complete Movie", can also be used for Web releases as appropriate.
# '''TV series main episodes'''
## Music Videos main episodes: Use "Music Video" if there is only one episode, otherwise use "Episode XX".
## Not applicable.
## S episodes: Use the default "Special XX" title format.
## Use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.
## C/T episodes: See the type-specific section for in-depth guidance.
### For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use "Episode XX" where XX is the number of the episode.
### For all other languages: do not add a title.
# '''OVA and OAD main episodes'''
## If there is only one volume in the entire release, use "OVA"/"OAD" instead of the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles; also refer to [[Content:Titles#Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry|Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry]].
## If there is more than one volume, use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.
### For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use "Volume XX" for each OVA/OAD episode.
### For all other languages: do not add a title.
# '''Movies main episodes'''
## If there is only one movie in the entire release, use "Complete Movie" instead of the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles; also refer to [[Content:Titles#Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry|Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry]].
## If there is more than one movie, use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.
### For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use "Movie XX" for each movie.
### For all other languages: do not add a title.
## ''Movies split into multiple parts when released by fansubs''
### In the past (generally 2010 or older), fansubs used to release movies separated into multiple files: this was done to reduce file sizes, and allow files to fit on a 700MB CD-R.
### For example, a 2 hour movie may be split into 2 files of 1 hour each, resulting in a "Part 1" and "Part 2" file.
### When adding these to the database, only for Movies, we create multiple regular episode entries to store all the part files.
### The naming convention is as follows: "Part XX of YY" -- see example: {{short|a331|Tenkuu no Shiro Laputa (Laputa: Castle in the Sky)}}
### In the rare case of a multiple file fansub release for a movie series with more than 1 movie in the series:
#### When each movie has a title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles, use "_______: Part XX of YY". Examples: "Origination: Part 1 of 2", "Execution: Part 2 of 2".
#### Otherwise if no title is found, use "Movie ZZ: Part XX of YY". Examples: "Movie 1: Part 1 of 2", "Movie 2: Part 2 of 2".
# '''Music Videos main episodes'''
## If there is only one episode in the entire release, use "Music Video" instead of the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles; also refer to [[Content:Titles#Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry|Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry]].
## If there is more than one episode, use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.
### For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use "Episode XX" for each episode.
### For all other languages: do not add a title.
# '''Web series main episodes'''
## If there is only one episode in the entire release, use "Web", "Short Movie", "Complete Movie", etc. as appropriate, instead of the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles; also refer to [[Content:Titles#Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry|Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry]].
## If there is more than one episode, use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.
### For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use "Episode XX" for each episode.
### For all other languages: do not add a title.
# '''S episodes'''
## Not applicable.
## Use the title obtained under the rules for finding episode titles.
### For English titles: otherwise if no title is found, use the default "Episode SX" title format, e.g. "Episode S1", "Episode S13".
### For all other languages: do not add a title.
# '''C/T episodes'''
## Not applicable.
## Not applicable.
### For English titles: see the relevant type-specific sections for in-depth guidance.
### For all other languages: do not add a title.
 
====Anime Entry Types That Typically Only Have 1 Regular Episode Entry====
These anime entries typically only have 1 ''regular'' episode entry (regular episode type, meaning S episodes are excluded):
# OVA/OAD
# Movie
# Music Video
# Web Series (when used to release an OVA/OAD, Movie, or Music Video; does not apply to Web Series used to release a TV series)
For these anime entries, when it only has 1 regular-type episode entry, the episode title is added to anime entry's title and '''not''' the episode entry's title; the entry's single episode title follows default rules as outlined above.
 
# Generally, this rule applies only for cases when there are one (''{{short|a13248|Hajimete no Gal: Hajimete no Bunkasai}}'') or two (''{{short|a14024|Koi to Uso: Isshou no Koi / Koi no Kimochi}}'') episode titles for the single episode release.
# In rare cases when there are more than 2 (''{{short|a13387|Tottoko Hamtarou: Anime Dechu!}}'') episode titles, do '''not''' add them to the OVA/OAD's anime title; they are added like usual to the episode entry's title.
