Combining Anime seasons
Combine anime series together like the TV section? Currently the animes are different entries. When i import my Trakt data it does not register the different entries therefore missing some episodes etc.
Many users use metadata sources or agents that do consider contiguous anime series seasons (ex: thetvdb, plexTV).
Currently integrations with apps that function in this way is spotty at best, because it fails when the SIMKL method (drawing from anidb) disagrees with the season based method the services above use.
If SIMKL were able to translate between the two systems would be very valuable, and allow me to recommend this to friends whose libraries currently make SIMKL very spotty to use.
Where would the data for such a bridge come from? If nothing else, I would be glad to manually enter season/show links for all my media to make this work. Allowing community contributions ('paste the thetvdb season link associated with this show in the box!') might work!
Allowing differing directors/studios and ratings for individual seasons seems possible.
Some anime have different producers and studios working on the franchise sequals

I have the same problem with some anime series
but to combine seasons like IMDB is not the best idea because not all of them have the same quality, for example, diamond no ace s1 was amazing unlike s2
