The title Shūmatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii Desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii Desu ka? is just too insanely long and messes up my recording keeping in My Anime listing here at ANN. I keep track of all shows that I am currently watching and those that I have watched. The title is so insanely long, it makes it hard to record any comments in any category that the title appears without forcing the use of two lines, which I don't like doing. I noticed that an ANN article related to the show used SukaSuka as a short form. Any chance of using that for it's ANN Encyclopedia listing? I really depise this Japanese habit of occasionally using absolutely ridiculously long titles.

You can add a diminutive title as an alternate if it is in official use (e.g. on the official anime site), but the main title would only change if a licensee (e.g. a streaming site) uses something different as the primary English-language title.

Ah, I see. That makes sense. I've come up with a jerry-rigged solution of creating a new category in My Anime imaginatively called Long Title where I've quarantined the show. If I'm lucky, I won't like it and feel free to drop it which would solve my problem nicely.
