Strike the Blood Wrong Seasons

Postby Aru-mou » Sat Jan 12, 2019 3:25 pm

Hi,

season 2 and 3 of Strike the Blood are listed as specials.
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/strike-the-blood

Specials no. 3 - 10 should be moved to Season 2
Specials from no. 10 on should be moved and in future added to Season 3.

While yes, all of those are released as OVA, those are cannonically the sequels of season 1 and should be treated so. I mean, it's a japanese series, we can't just apply western sorting styles to it. (Especially if it breaks apps using the tvdb API to manage series).

OVAs cannot be added as seasons per site policy.

The DVD Order is set up to respect the order you want (it just doesn't display without going in the editing form.) You can make use of that feature in the application you are using.

3-10 are DVD season 2 episodes 1-8
11-20 are DVD season 3 episodes 1-10

The point is that OVA are NOT MOVIES, as stated in the site rules. They are almost always episodes. In this case, they are named StB II and StB III, and are 8 and 10 epsisodes. They have to be moved to Season 2 and Season 3,

OVAs (Original Video Animations) fall under the movie category. Because of this, OVAs are not allowed in the database unless they can be tied to an already existing TV series, in which case, they would be added to the "Specials" season.


Won't happen. Ever. Use DVD Order, I personally set it up for that specific reason.
