Well, my first question is more of a debate, really... The gray area that defines anime... How are we going to deal with it?

"Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" was directed/scripted by Japan, but it was animated in the US. And it's marked anime. "The Last Unicorn" was written/scripted in either the US or Germany(Can't remember which), but all animation was done in Japan. This isn't marked as anime.

My opinion is that since anime means "Japanese animation" it shouldn't matter who "made" it, or where it premiered, it should matter hwo animated it. But how are we going to deal with this greay area? :?

My second question is moreso in the music category.(PS: Thank you for the trailer category!) How are we supposed to enter Trailers? Some people put trailers under the artist "...other...", Others put it under the movie's title, and still others use "Trailer audio" or the studio that produced the film. Which is the "correct" way to enter in trailers?
(I asked this in a thread in Site Help a few months a go, but I got no responses).

Thanks in advance.
Changes are good. Wait until you've seen mine.

Usually I give gray areas the benifit of the doubt and mark them anime.

When I looked up info on the Last Unicorn I didn't know about japanese animators as the credits were predominantly western.

As for the sprits within, Squaresoft buying a building in Hawaii and going there to animate the movie doesn't suddenly make them american :P

What's the average time it takes for a delete request to be taken care of?

Was posting a new video entry today, and happened to see something that I knew was anime crossed off.

And I'm damn certain about this, because I capped Blood Reign off ADV's R1 release, and bought the VHS tapes for Kujaku-oh/Peacock King direct from CPM's liquidation stand at Anime Boston.

I wasn't going to win anything in the VCAs anyway, but it's better if these are marked back as anime where they belong.

How should merchandise be listed? In one of my videos I used a couple Tenchi Muyo plushies, a couple covers, some pokie boxes, etc. and while they're all related to anime none of them were directly from an anime episode. I just entered all the actual anime I used and left out the merchandise (although I mentioned them in the video description) but how should I have listed it?

There's entries that start with "Original" all of which are classed as "anime" for sake of ease.

You can choose "Original Photography" and then just describe what that means in the video description.
