This one: anime#18055
shouldn't be counted as a separated series. It's just an arc. And it actually never was advertised as a separated series, only as adaptation of the novel.

So then there should be separate entries for the animated adaptations of
- Sasuke Shinden (Naruto: Sasuke's Story - Sunrise) - novel is licensed but not in the encyclopedia
- Shikamaru Hiden (Naruto: Shikamaru's Story)
- Konohagakure Hiden (Naruto: Hidden Leaf Story).

I think the issue here is multi-fold.

First off, the encyclopedia entry lists this as a spin-off of Shippuden. This is an error, as it was not a spin-off, but episodes of the series.

Secondly, what denotes a season? According to Wikipedia (yes, I know), this arc, as well as what appears to be a few other arcs, are all part of Season 20 of Shippuden. While the arc itself may be adapted from a side novel, it appears that this (and the other arcs) share a framing story with the episodes preceeding and following it. Furthermore, this specific arc covers episodes 451-457, yet the opening and ending themes run from 432-458 and 444-454/455-466, respectfully, indicating that it is not a separate season. It also appears that the framework story for the entire season is referenced in the Japanese DVD releases, indicating that this is part of the overall season.

I would say that this definitely should not be its own entry, but perhaps the entry could be modified to include all of Season 20?

Sorry, but in this case, you'll have to create an over 9000 enties for every Naruto arc, including filler episodes, since this entry we're talking about is 8 episodes, set in the middle of the larger arc. I understand why we separate split cours, I disagreed on separating World Trigger into two parts, but I understood the staff point on that. Here, however, making a separate entry for it doesn't make any sense at all. There's no even a point, where you can separate from the main series, since adaptation itself is all around the place.

I think separating it by seasons now is a little too late, since Shippuuden is ending soon and Boruto is going to air in it's place. A few hundred episodes ago it could work out, but now it will be a pointless and enormous work of separating staff and cast across the different entries for a series that's pretty much is ready to end.[/quote]
