Thanks for the suggestion Sapphiresky and Iteza. I'll try them both.
Though I'm still looking for it since I'm having a hard time with AnimeDB due to having to add per episode of the anime instead of the anime itself.
But if there's no other easier way then I'll have to put up with what I have right?
AniDB and AnimePlanet are THE most "complete" sites (to my knowledge)
If you're a "basic" user, and only really want to keep track of what you've watched (assuming you always watch in sequential order) AnimePlanet will suffice.
The interface is really user friendly, though the database content tends to be a bit behind that of AniDB and it has no real keyword system in place (which I consider vital). New episodes take a few days to be added for some series (so you can't always mark them immediately, wait a day or two)... which is not a problem if you don't watch "live" on TV or the minute a group puts a release online.
The other downside is that the "newer" (currently running) Anime often lacks detailed information like a description or images.
If you want to keep track of Anime you've downloaded or want more control over which episodes you've watched from which releases (including specials), AniDB is a very useful tool, especially in combination with WebAOM or the plain AOM (if you're on windows).
I use it often to verify downloaded episodes, automatically correct naming, and check for corruption (AniDB keeps track of file hashes).
AniDB's database is by far the better of the two and has much more contributors in it's userbase (which helps in keeping things up to date).
The downside is that it's a bit less user-friendly and a bit overkill for the average user.
Both have their up and downsides, try them both, but keep in mind that you can't simply export/import between the two (making it hard to migrate large collections).
Who they, what are, and why?
