http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid ... 5881&lid=7 is a recent series of OVAs.

Starting today, however, a remake/reedit of the OVAs in broadcast format titled Mobile Suit Gundam UC RE:0076 just started airing. This one is an actual TV series, slated for a 2-season-long run.

Perhaps a series should be created for that, and the OVAs should, I don't know, either be removed or converted into specials under the listing for the actual TV broadcast series?

So, has there been a decision yet? Keeping or deleting the (legacy) OVAs?

(Also, what counts as legacy? Pre-2015? :o)

It's not even legacy anymore, my understanding is that the administration is okay with OVA as long as they're legitimate series-length entries, not simply a one-off or a movie split to two nights for airing purposes (though Macross Plus exists, so four parts seems to be acceptable).

Ok cool. I almost figured as much since somebody added "Anime OAV" as a TV network :o. Can they be "mini-series" length too? So 1-3 episodes only?

Can't be used as a cut and dry example anymore but Magus' Bride was OK as 3 22 mins episodes OVA until TV series was announced.

Honestly, I think the removal of Magus's Bride left a bad taste in people's mouths. That there's now a proper series to house the OVA tie-in doesn't necessarily mean that the original removal was 100% sound.

Yeah I added it, it was not okay but then someone else added it later and it was okay.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
