Yes I know its the conclusion of the series, it's still a new anime and should receive its own guide like Naruto and it's continuation as well as Dragon Ball and Z.
Cartoon Network (ended 2006)
|Five isn't long at all, Kamen Rider covers four decades' worth of shows... Using your logic, shows like Naruto Shippuden and Dragon Ball Z, who start off soon after the original finishes, should be merged. And yet you're using them as examples of why guides should be separated. Disregarding the company's request, the only defense I can think of for Naruto Shippuden would be the time skip in the story. I haven't seen much of neither Dragon Ball nor Z, but I'm under the impression that in Dragon Ball, the characters are kids, and in Z, they are adults. That's a rather large time skip, no? So then, you're saying shows that have a time skip in the story should have their own guide? In terms of IY, the story takes off right where the first one did. No spinoffs, and no time skips. I don't see any problem with it being in the original guide. As I said before, there is no set standard here. You'll find merged guides for some shows, and separated guides for some shows. You'll find shows that have both English and Japanese cast listed, and shows that have two guides, one for each language. The method used varies depending on each show and each person who contributes to the guides.|
In Japan, Dragon Ball Z premiered the week after Dragon Ball and in the manga there was no name change..... the time skip was very small (five years in the manga) but they're still adults at the end of Dragon Ball. I'm not saying mangas with timeskips should have a different guide, I'm saying anime with different names ("Shippuden", "Dragon Ball Z" "Kanketsu-Hen") that will be marketed in North America as separate series deserve separate guides.
|Everybody makes some good points. The reasons that I finally decided to just add the episodes here, instead of asking staff to start a new guide are as follows: (1) This show hasn't yet aired on American TV, which was one of the rules here for allowing a new show, otherwise we'd have a lot more foreign shows than we do (2) the show is airing now on the web--people can get the new information more quickly by not waiting for a new guide and (3) the new episodes are a continuation of the same story with the same voice actors: This is not a spinoff with a new slant that would definitely need a new guide.|
|I was just trying to save you the trouble since Viz will request a new guide when the dub starts anyways..... I guess we'll have to wait, doesn't make much of a difference to me.|

|what channel is it on and what station?|
|When there's a five year gap between seasons, I think it deserves a new guide.|
