Duplicate Episodes in Japanlogy Plus

Postby Matthias » Sun Jun 09, 2019 9:22 am

With the new NHK website for Japalonology plus it's been difficult to determine which episodes are new and which are rerun's without looking at IMDB or TheTVDB first. Leading up to an episode airing they will write "*rerun" beside the episode title but after airing the episode is moved into a new list where they do not indicate if it was a rerun or not.

This has lead to these two duplicates being created:

original: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/japanolo ... es/6178885
duplicate: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/japanolo ... es/7227864

original: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/japanolo ... es/6590862
duplicate: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/japanolo ... es/7227865

not really sure how to remedy this going forward as it is going to continue happening.

You will have to be vigilant and dutifully note when it happens or search the previous episodes.
We also lost episode numbering which is equally annoying as I can't really determine if it is a new "season" or not now.
