Revision as of 12:14, 20 September 2005

A multi-episode file is a file with at least 2 episodes. Those are troublesome as AniDB can only associate 1 Episode to 1 File atm. Add the episodes like described in the How to add new episodes-guideline, but with with the following episode titles.

There are 2 cases we have to consider for this. In both people of course still have to add generic files to their lists. That workaround can't be avoided.

Case 1 - The release is done completely in multi-episode files

If a group releases all episodes in multi-episode files (e.g. Future Boy Conan), these files should generally be added to specials O (Other Episodes)

Episode[s] xx-yy
  • where x and y can, if necessary, be followed by (Part s of t) to indicate split episodes


Examples

the file contains episode 1,2 and 3
  • O1: Episodes 1-3
3 Episodes got merged by the R1 company and then later cut by the dvd-ripper
  • O1: Episodes 1-3 (Part 1 of 2)
  • O2: Episodes 1-3 (Part 2 of 2)

Case 2 - Only a few files are done in multi-episode files

If a group releases just some files that contain multiple episodes (e.g. the multi-episodes in Prince of Tennis). These files should be added to the first episode they contain and a filecomment in this form should be added:

Joint episodes xx-yy

Additional note to reduce confusion

Why is Ebichu 24 episodes when Azumanga Daioh is 26 episodes?
Ebichu was aired 2 episodes at a time; Azumanga Daioh was aired 5 episodes at a time

This question can be answered pretty fast by checking their Japanese homepages.

  • Ebichu is mentioned on the page as having 24 episodes. It was also released on 4 DVDs with 6 episodes per DVD. Can be seen here: [1] and more clearly here (purple box): [2]
  • Azumanga Daioh is very clearly marked as 26 episodes with 5 chapters per episode. Can be seen here: [3]
