BTW, here's some tips regarding covers so you're uploading the highest-quality versions and also not having a bunch of white surrounding them. If you're uploading something with a lot of white/gray space surrounding it (Example), keep the "Crop Image" box checked. What that will do is the site will automatically crop all the white space out. I recently uploaded the linked image as the overview image and here's how it turned out.
https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Drago...lu-ray/283548/

If there's no white space to speak of (usually if you're uploading flat front or back covers), or there's a bunch of white on the actual cover, don't have it checked. Examples of what it could crop...
https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....1ZG71DPVNL.jpg (When I first uploaded the cover, it cropped part of the bottom when I was trying to get rid of the sliver of white space from the right side)
https://www.blu-ray.com/dvd/Seraphim-Call-DVD/230828/
https://shop.funimation.com/dw/image...vd-00357-1.jpg (It cropped to the text at the top, I had to manually remove the gray space)
https://www.blu-ray.com/dvd/Peacemak...es-DVD/228994/

Now for URL modifications. If you're taking an image from the FUNimation Shop (which also often has back cover images now which often appear only there) or RightStuf, open it in a new tab and delete everything after ".jpg" in the URL, it will give you the original image. Here's an example.
https://shop.funimation.com/dw/image...?sw=625&sh=625
https://shop.funimation.com/dw/image...vd-00253-1.jpg
https://www.rightstufanime.com/image...0&resizew=1000
https://www.rightstufanime.com/image...u-ray-back.jpg

For Amazon, remove the number that appears after the last capital L in the title. Note how much larger the image is as a result.
https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....L._SL1500_.jpg
https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....1fI-XK6uKL.jpg

You can also do URL modifications on the Sentai Filmworks Shop but it's not really worth it.https://twitter.com/WTK/status/1357199416927653889

For older releases, if you can only find a small cover, the minimum dimensions are 300x300 excluding the white space even if you have the crop image box not checked. If you have to resize a pic, 300 pixels is the minimum you need with white space not included, I upscale the images in GIMP. You can alternatively Google the UPC and you may be able to come across a Best Buy link like so. I recenty had to do this because what Amazon had for this was way too small.

https://pisces.bbystatic.com/image2/...1106885_sa.jpg
https://www.blu-ray.com/dvd/Trigun-V...rms-DVD/45395/

Back covers for older releases can often be found at DVD Empire.

Ex: https://www.dvdempire.com/18664/trig...rms-movie.html

I just wonder exactly what is a Foreign Anime? I mean when there are categories to choose from of Foreign, Animation and Anime, I feel like Foreign Animation or just saying Anime mean the same thing. No need to put it in every category. Just Anime is fine and just whatever genres the series goes in.

"The spoken language is not English."

That's how that tag works. Anything where the original language isn't English goes into that category.

I've tried to add Foreign to a few, like yours, it was denied. Anime is clearly foreign and a bunch have that tag, so idk the issue.

Then that makes the Anime category pointless because of the Animation category. So can just say Foreign Animation because that Anime mean the exact same thing.

I can't say I'm surprised. The mods will reject genre suggestions or give approval for ones for no rhyme or reason such as "Rawhide" & "Red River" being considered "Romance" and for a while "Lawrence of Arabia" was considered "foreign" despite the fact it's a US-UK co-production and the majority of the film is spoken in English.

A heads up, FUNimation is no longer using "The Complete Series" for their marketing, they're now going with "The Complete Season". Some examples... Something to think about when entering in the title field for future releases.

It makes sense for them to do this. You would avoid seeing "complete series" on a Season 1 packaging when there is a Season 2. It's also better than just mentioning series title only.

Additions from the last 2 months:

Adult Source Media
(Nearly all of these are compilation DVDs mishmashing completely unrelated series. Not going to bother linking them directly, you can find the newest additions here. Also many are missing covers because after having a few rejected (too NSFW is my best guess), not going to bother risking a potential cover upload ban. Only going to bother with anything that's not very NSFW uploading the covers.)
-All Sex Hentai Volumes 1-5
-Angels and Demons
-Busty Maids (An ASM cover isn't completely awful for once.)
-Daiakuji: The Xena Buster (All releases, and this is an actual series, not compilation DVDs.)
-Girls! Girls! Girls! (Yes, that's an actual title they used.....)
-Family Time
-Fun Time *****s
-Hentai *****s Out of Control!
-I Love Tentacles
-Kink
-Lessons in Seduction
-Moral Hazard (This is an actual OVA, not a compilation DVD.)
-Naughty Young Nurses

-Taboo

ADV Films
-Generator Gawl - Volume 1 (2005 re-release)

Anime 18
-Nightmare Campus - Volumes 1-5 and A Total Nightmare

Aniplex Japan
-Rurouni Kenshin - Complete Works (I need to add a few more things before I can properly bundle ID it as it contains the TV series, Reflection, Trust & Betrayal, and the movie. No English support to no one's surprise.)
-Rurouni Kenshin: Reflection JP DVDs (Original and Director's Cut-Also this got me to notice that every listing site had wrong info for when it "aired" as they used a completely made up date with no source from ANN, I've since helped get this 19 year old mistake corrected at ANN, AniDB, MAL, here, and Wikipedia.)
-The Garden of Sinners JP DVDs (LE and RE)

-Freezing Vibration (FUNimation Shop Exclusive with Calendar)
-Hero Tales - Part 1 (Regular Edition-Somehow I missed this one...)

Geneon Entertainment
-Armitage: Dual Matrix (Signature Series)
-Catnapped!: The Movie (Original Release and Signature Series-This movie is rather rare and expensive now. Oh, and Geneon tried to mention Akira in their marketing on the back cover, you know, super family-friendly Akira.)
-Doki Doki School Hours Volume 4 and Volume 5
-New Getter Robo - Volumes 1-4 and Box Set
-Tenchi the Movie 2: Daughter of Darkness (Signature Series)
-The SoulTaker - Volumes 1-4 (Signature Series)

Kitty Media

-Oh! My Sex Goddess (Blu-ray)
-Spy of Darkness

Madman Entertainment
-Elfen Lied Blu-ray and 2007 DVD (Apparently Australia never got the Blu-rays before.)

Media Blasters
-Atomic Anime Blast - Volume 1 (They're now doing compilations for non-hentai releases it seems.)

NIS America
-Toradora! Volume 1 (Blu-ray-only re-release)

Sentai Filmworks
-Ahiru no Sora - Collection 2 and Complete Collection (Limited Edition)
-Assassins Pride SteelBook
-Karakuri Circus - Complete Collection

I've also been trying to create movie ID pages for hentai releases that don't have them, especially given how only a little over a week after I made one for Oh! My Sex Goddess, the Blu-ray got announced. Unfortunately because I wasn't aware of how the direct to video setting works (never set it to yes unless it's a 1-episode OVA), it wiped the plot summaries for stuff the site automatically linked to the pages after I made them, so corrections will need to be made to many entries. There is no way to bring them back even after you set direct to video back to "No". I'm sorry for this oversight, I've since made sure on future entries to leave direct to video to "No".

.
I don't understand these are they just random clips or actual episodes? Do they include whole series? Seems like such a dumb way to market stuff and it's almost impossible to tell what the original shows are. I think I own 2-3 hentai, obviously most of isn't worth owning but some I actually would buy. With crap like Redo of Healer going mainstream I'm kind of surprised other hentai aren't being licensed anymore as there are a lot way better than that

Adult Source Media literally just puts together different scenes from multiple hentai into 1-hour compilation DVDs, they very rarely release actual hentai series. There's no episodes, just nothing but clips, and they've been releasing dozens of these things over the last decade. If you want to buy actual hentai series, you need to look at whatever Critical Mass Video (hentai division of RightStuf-BTW, Interspecies Reviewers will be released under CMV despite not being a hentai) and Kitty Media (hentai division of Media Blasters) do.

Don't know how recent it is but looks like RightStuf.com exclusive titles now have their own new retail ID field (as long as the SKU is still in print and for sale)

Unless I'm wrong the ID is auto generated from the UPC, not sure which numbers you would extract or copy in order to enter it separately.

It's been doing it for items that aren't retailer-exclusive as well. Excuse these being all hentai DVDs, they're things I recently added and then noticed the RightStuf links on the pages.

Added:

ADV Films
-Dirty Pair Flash Volumes 1-3 (People really don't care for this entry in Dirty Pair do they?)

Anime 18
-Crimson Climax Volume 1 and Volume 2
-Square of the Moon Phase 1 and Phase 2

Critical Mass Video
-Crimson Climax Volume 1 and Volume 2
-Square of the Moon Volume 1 and Volume 2

Geneon Entertainment
-Heat Guy J Box Set (2005 release-I only just recently noticed after all this time Heat Guy J got 2 box sets from Geneon, one in 2005 for $210, another in 2007 for $60, the 2007 one was what was already in the database. Both should have just been the singles in the artboxes shrinkwrapped together with a UPC sticker put on the shrinkrwap in typical Geneon repackaging fashion.)

Kitty Media
-Kisaku the Letch Volumes 1-3
-Shusaku the Letch
-Shusaku the Letch: Liberty
-Shusaku the Letch: Replay
-The Affairs (Co-Ed Affairs/Office Affairs)

NuTech Digital
-Shusaku the Letch Volumes 1-3 + Complete Box
-Shusaku the Letch: Replay - Volumes 1-4 (No complete box was released to my knowledge, ANN didn't even have covers, had to get them from HPB via Google.)

Also, all missing FUNimation pre-orders should be entered in. I also got some Sentai pre-orders others didn't add, namely MM!, Chihayafuru S3, and School-Live!: The Movie (live-action). I also added the Japanese releases for School-Live!: The Movie if anyone cares.
https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/movie...w=newpreorders

Now a few Bundle ID stuff that needs more explanation.

ADV Films
-Mazikaiser - Complete Collection and Shuten Doji - Complete Collection: These came from a double pack which used 2 DVD cases to bundle the singles as opposed to 4. If you ever see Shuten Doji or Mazinkaiser 2-disc DVDs with no UPCs on the back, this is why.

Bandai Entertainment
-Gurren Lagann Volume 5 and Volume 6: Never invididually released. Also, Volume 3 and Volume 4 were solicited, but were cancelled. If someone has the parts and could scan the fronts of 5-6 and the backs of 3-6 to replace those eBay auction pictures, that'd be great.

Geneon Entertainment
-The Law of Ueki Volumes 10-13: Never individually released, only 9/13 volumes came out, the rest of the episodes came out in the poorly handled box set which was two completely identical DVD cases shrinkwrapped together, no volume titles or numbers on the discs, and Volume 4 still sticks out like a sore thumb. I get this show sold poorly, but come on. It took until the Discotek release in 2018 for the show to be released properly. Anyway, did that only for Bundle ID purposes, gotta love pictures of individual discs from an eBay auction like they're ImaginAsian DVD-R releases...
