I see an anime that has not been added yet on ANN, though it's more on an OVA. It's Tantei Opera Milky Holmes : Psycho no Aisatsu. ANN wrote a news article about this a while ago. I'd like to see it get added, but I don't know who I should speak to, where I should say it, and whether I could contribute myself to add an entry.

Below is a link to the ANN new page and an entry on MAL. Thank you.

There's a section where you can submit new entries. It's not very well attended too, though, so additions are often in purgatory for years at a time.

Thank you for the answer, I'll be sure to keep that in mind.

A lot of this should have been attended to years ago. Why it hasn't is something I want to know, and probably a lot of other people too.

100% sure it's due to lack of Editors with the permissions and knowledge to add titles or fix errors. Last I checked, there seemed to be only around 5 (?!) active Editors at most trying to maintain this huge Encyclopedia. They don't want to add people willy-nilly in case they make mistakes that are tedious to fix or accidentally make ANN look bad. It's quite commendable that the editors and contributors donate their time and knowledge for free after all this time, so I have a lot of respect for this resource. Maybe they'll find more people someday. Sad

I'm always available if they need volunteers.
I've been contributing to the encyclopedia for years. And I've been contributing to IMDB for even longer. It's about the only thing I ever use my Japanese BA for, sadly. Wink
