=Where can I add new Episodes?!=
At the bottom of every anime entry is a link names named "Add Episode". Once you click it you're on the "Add Episode" page. There's a lot of info you can input here.
=Basic info you should include when adding an episodeEpisode Information===Episode numberNumber==
Be careful with different episode orders here. For the moment the Japanese "how it was supposed to be shown" order is our standard.
**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 / commercials for the anime itself are added to T episodes.
*Opening/Ending Episode ''(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/endings. 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/ED 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.}}}}

==Episode Title==
===General Episode Titling Policies===These basic principles apply Refer to all episode titles of all languages and all episode types:* Do not include the anime title in the episode title. The anime title is an "anime title", and therefore not an "episode title" and not to be included as any portion of any episode title; anime titles are stored in the anime entry. This applies to all episode types, and all languages. ===Non-Production Language Episode Titling Policies===These basic principles apply to any language titles other than the original production lanague (e.g. English, French, Spanish titles, etc.):# Check these sources, in order, to see if there is an official title available for the language in question:## The video from an official licensed source for that language.## The official website, if any.## The tertiary official sources like the DVD/Blu-ray back cover, if any.# 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.## 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.## 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.## Music Videos main episodes: Use "Music Video" if there is only one episode, otherwise use "Episode XX".## S episodes: Use the default "Special XX" format title.## C/T episodes: See the type-specific section for in-depth guidance. ===Stylized Episode Numbers===Episode "titles" such as "Operation 9", "File #002" or "XYZ第一話" or "ABCの第三話" etc. are considered to be stylised episode numbers rather than episode titles.* When they prepend the main episode title, do not add them or their transcriptions/translations to the title.* When they appear standalone as the only thing in the episode title, use the default "Episode XX" or "Volume XX" naming convention instead. ==="Prologue" and "00" Episodes (For English Titles)===When it comes to episodes that are numbered as "Prologue" or "00", unless there is a "clear indication" that an "episode 0" should NOT be considered as the first episode of the regular airing sequence, an episode 0 will be considered episode 1 on AniDB, as it is the first aired episode. Examples of "clear indications" for what "episode 0" entries should NOT be considered as the first episode of the regular airing sequence:* our [ Macross Delta] -- episode S1, ''Battlefield Prologue'', this is essentially a trailer of the first episode* [httpContent:// Chaos;Child] -- episode S1, ''Chaos;Head'', this is a recap episode of the prequel series For reference, the original discussion on AniDB's moderator IRC channel can be found [ hereEpisode_Titles|Episode Title], along with follow-up comments [ here]. ====In Summary: when an "episode 0" is considered as episode 1 on AniDB====* An episode note should be added to provide a brief description. For example: "Listed as Episode 00"* We will apply the following episode title naming convention, to make it explicit that it is an "episode 0":<pre>-- "Episode 0: xxxxx: yyyyy - zzzzz",-- "Episode 00: xxxxx: yyyyy - zzzzz",-- "Prologue 00: xxxxx: yyyyy - zzzzz", Etc, where:xxxxx: yyyyy - zzzzzzRepresents our general title naming convention of:Main_ep_title: sub_title - sub_sub_title</pre> ===Guidance for T episodes===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 title '''in full'''.** 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 example: A web PV posted on the official YouTube would have an official title from the producer/distributor.** Do not include extraneous bits in the title, such as "- Netflix", "TVアニメ" ("TV Anime"), that are metadata, but not part of the actual functional title of the PV.* If a Japanese title is given, transcribe it '''in full'''.* For the English title, the general naming convention is as follows: <<Type>> <<#>> (<<Length>>): <<Description>> - <<Sub-description>>** 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, page for each typedetails. 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.* 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 does not match with other releases or our episodes. Example: {{short|e185514|<nowiki>PV 5 (24:00): Public Anniversary Special</nowiki>}} The general naming convention is not universal. Use some discretion for special cases. Examples:* A lot of easily identifiable information is given: {{short|e170347|<nowiki>CM Ep 11 and 12 (aka 23 & 24) (0:19) (#23番宣CM)</nowiki>}}* Feature length PV, PV with a full TV title, etc: {{short|e183603|<nowiki>Arpeggio Movie #2 "Cadenza " Public Special Commemorative Program First 20 Minutes Release!! (Gekijouban Arpeggio Dai 2 Dan "Cadenza" Koukai Kinen Tokubetsu Bangumi Boutou 20 Bundai Koukai!! / 劇場版アルペジオ第2弾『Cadenza』公開記念特別番組 冒頭20分大公開!!)</nowiki>}}
==Play Length==
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 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.
