All done (for posts since September).

Also, I'm still wondering about the "licensed by" and "distributor" split for adult anime (and presumably manga) labels, e.g. here, when the two are (essentially) the same company.

So am I. Anime smile + sweatdrop It seems that no written standard is present, and being unable to acquire legal domesticated adult anime titles I'll leave the decision to North American Encyclopedists.

Toumei Ningen (OAV) (#7833) has been licensed by TRSI/Critical Mass; compare with the second Japanese volume.

Tsuukin Kairaku Chikan de GO! (#8066) and Kaihouku (#8053) have been licensed by Media Blasters/Kitty Media under the omnibus title Pervs on a Train. Proof: Anime on DVD's review of Pervs on a Train and Xonair's Pervs on a Train listing (log in and compare the screenshots against the Tsuukin Kairaku and Kaihouku official sites). (Tsuukin Kairaku Chikan de GO! lists "Pervs on a Train" as an alternate title, for which I have already submitted an error report.)

I believe "Study+A+Broad" is also an omnibus of two standalone MS Pictures shows, but I need to check on that to confirm.

I can't confirm it yet (specifics have yet to be released), but here is the speculation. At the very least, MB/Kitty has licensed Eisai Kyoiku, and possibly Seisen Gakuin, so "Study-A-Broad"/"Study+A+Broad" should be treated as an omnibus.

Another omnibus title: Media Blasters/Kitty Media has released Inbo and Inko under the title The Sleazy Family (which is already entered as "Sleazy Family" in Inbo). Proof: see the official pages linked from the Encyclopedia pages, and Anime on DVD's review.

I recommend that omnibuses be created for these series, using the American titles. (Yes, this is a bassackward error report, but the error report form is not designed for cases such as these.)

I can now confirm it—compare the screenshots at MS Pictures' site for Eisai Kyoiku and Seisen Gakuin with the ones for Study-A-Broad here and here. The latter site, AnimeDepot.biz, even gives the titles in kanji.

Done by adding more titles into respective releases. Pervs on a Train has two "episodes" (in fact two separated titles when released in Japan) with their respective English titles as main titles, while The Sleazy Family and Study-A-Broad have original Japanese titles as main titles for I haven't been able to find out respective English "episode" titles (should they exist).

I'm not sure if omnibuses should be created just because US distributors merge similar titles into one, and each new omnibus would contain just 2-3 titles. Right now I'd say listing more than one titles in a release (same goes with Genshiken and Kujibiki Unbalance) should be enough.

In The Sleazy Family Inbō is listed as The Sleazy Family episodes 1–3, while Inkō is listed as episodes 4–6. Study-A-Broad's component series are titled Crazy Gate and Holy Sleazy School.

But then the "second" series contained in the omnibus release is not easily found—certainly not by the Encyclopedia's search engine—unlike with my proposal. As it is now, on the entries' main pages the relationship is only implied, rather than explicitly stated. How many users actually click on the releases?
