About Anime Series with different Season names?

Post by Silke79 »

Hi, my problem is with the script I use is that when for example Anime series get a new season name that I will get a new main folder for the series that is a bit of a pain when that happens when I would like to use Medusa or Sickbeard and want to keep track of episodes or season i'm missing in a series.

Code: Select all

S:\TV-Serier\D\Dr. Stone (2019)\Season 01\S01E01 - #0001 - Stone World - [1280x720] [720p - x264] [AAC - 2ch] [2019-07-05]

Code: Select all

S:\TV-Serier\D\Dr. Stone - Stone Wars (2021)\Season 02\S02E01 - #0001 - Stone Wars Beginning - [1280x720] [720p - x264] [AAC - 2ch] [2021-01-14]
So I would if possible that it would look like this instead?

Code: Select all

S:\TV-Serier\D\Dr. Stone (2019)\Season 01\S01E01 - #0001 - Stone World - [1280x720] [720p - x264] [AAC - 2ch] [2019-07-05]

Code: Select all

S:\TV-Serier\D\Dr. Stone (2019)\Season 02 - Stone Wars\S02E01 - #0001 - Stone Wars Beginning - [1280x720] [720p - x264] [AAC - 2ch] [2021-01-14]
This is the script I use.

Code: Select all

/TV-Serier/{az}/{(n == primaryTitle ? ny : ny + ' (' + primaryTitle + ')').colon(' - ')}/{episode.special ? 'Special' : 'Season '+s.pad(2)}/{s00e00} {'- #' + absolute.pad(4)} - {t.colon(' - ').lowerTrail()} - [{resolution}] [{vf} - {vc}] [{ac} - {af}] [{airdate}]{'.'+lang}

If you use TheTVDB then Dr Stone will be organized into Season 1 and Season 2:

Translating between AniDB and TheTVDB can be more or less tricky depending on the exact circumstance:

However, if you use AniDB the Dr Stone will be organized into 2 distinct Series, since Anime / AniDB don't have the concept of a season.


FileBot is not generally aware of a "season title" so what you're trying to do is going to be tricky. You could in theory extract the "Stone Wars" piece of information from the AniDB title, while using SxE information from TheTVDB, but any format code written for this specific use case likely won't generalize well to other use cases.

Ok, to bad that it will not work with AniDB to get them in one folder.
Thanks for the help.
