T episodes include PV (preview), CM (commercial), Trailer, etc; essentially, anything that generally serves the purpose of promoting an anime is a T episode. Generally, T episode naming guidance is as follows:
T episodes include PV (preview), CM (commercial), Trailer, etc. (non-exhaustive list); essentially, anything that generally serves the purpose of promoting an anime is a T episode. Generally, T episode naming guidance is as follows:
* If available, provide the Japanese T episode name. For example, a web PV posted on the official YouTube would have an official title from the producer/distributor.
* If available, provide the Japanese T episode name '''in full'''.
* If a Japanese name is given, transcribe it.
** For example: A PV posted on the official website (directly embedded, linked to YouTube or some other video service, etc.) would have an official title from the producer/distributor as written on the website (preferred) or as provided in the video's name or title card.
* For the English name, the general naming convention is as follows: <<Type>> <<#>> (<<Length>>) <<Description>>
** For example: A web PV posted on the official YouTube would have an official title from the producer/distributor
** Type: type of T episode, ie PV, CM
** Do not include extraneous bits in the title, such as "- Netflix", that are metadata not part of the actual functional title of the PV.
** #: number the various T episodes based on airing order, for each type.  For example, if there's 3 PV and 4 CM, number them PV 1, PV 2, PV 3, CM 1, CM 2, CM 3, CM 4.
* If a Japanese name is given, transcribe it '''in full'''.
** Length: provide the length in (m:ss) format. For example (1:36), (12:35). Given that most T episodes don't have formal titles, the '''exact''' length helps to track the T episodes, as it's otherwise very difficult to tell the T episodes apart.
* For the English name, the general naming convention is as follows: <<Type>> <<#>> (<<Length>>): <<Description>> - <<Sub-description>>
* Whenever possible, try to add a short and uniquely identifiable description of the shown content to the Note field of the episode, especially if that trailer or commercial is not available on the Internet. Good descriptions help immensely with identifying files from different releases whose labeling and ordering doesn't match with other releases or our episodes.
** Type: type of T episode, e.g. PV, CM, trailer, web PV, BD/DVD CM, etc. (non-exhaustive list). More descriptive terms are preferred, but terms should still be kept as short as practicable (e.g. do not expand "BD/DVD CM" to "blu-ray and DVD commercial").
** #: number the various T episodes based on airing order, for each type.  For example, if the anime has 3 PV and 4 CM, number them PV 1, PV 2, PV 3, CM 1, CM 2, CM 3, CM 4.
** Length: provide the length in (m:ss) format. For example (1:36), (12:35). Given that most T episodes do not have formal titles, the exact length helps to track the T episodes, as it is otherwise very difficult to tell the T episodes apart.
