Linking episodes, OVA's, and movies

Postby gator4798 » September 28th, 2007, 9:19 pm

Just a thought I had. Sometimes OVA's are created where they fit into the middle of an Anime season. Made to fit there with the storyline. For example the Love Hina episodes seem to be that way.(I have not checked to see when they were made as compared to the series so forgive me if Im mistaken). I personally did not know this so I watched the OVA's after the series. So my idea it to add a link to the OVA, or movie, into the episode list in its proper spot.
Episode 15:
Link to OVA/ movie
Episode 16:

Just my two cents.
Love the site keep up the great work!!!!!

Actually, that's a pretty good idea. There are several series that have movies and OVAs that fit in in odd spots; though Love Hina goes 24-Episode Series, Secret 25th Episode that AC never uploaded to the site (you may still be able to find it on Youtube though), the two movies - Christmas Special then Spring Special, and then finally the 3 Love Hina Again OVAs. It would be nice if they were linked though.

InuYasha's another good example. While I'm not sure where the movies fit, unlike the notorious Dragonball Z movies (I admit, it was my childhood gateway to Anime, shoddy as it is, I still hold it somewhat nostalgic and fondly), they are Anime Canon - though the stories don't appear in the manga.

Movie 2 is referenced in season 6 at least, and though the location of movie 2 is practically impossible to place (at least as far as I've tried to, none of the places work well), it is therefore canon in the anime.

Cardcaptor Sakura movies too: though I do think AC should upload the Japanese/English Subbed versions of the movies, since they've been here long before the series was added, and the English versions, as we all know, is rather quite dismal in this series' case; the first movie occurs right after Season 1, the second movie occurs after the events of Season 3. These too you can find on youtube, or at least you could last spring, but I would highly like it if both Love Hina #25, and the subbed CS movies were added to AC, as it's much preferable, and not subject to attacks from Google (who now own Youtube).

Once these movies (and any other OVAs and Movies) can be placed in the right locations, maybe a link can be made to connect to the OVA or Movie page from the series episodes page so that people don't watch them out of place?

I agree with you on that one. There should be a related to section on the page of the series, ova or movie. Would make it easier for the viewers. They could put sequel, prequel or alternate retelling beside the title.
