  1. rewatched series/movies/anime

    hey :) ive been a user a long time. and after some years of trying to find a good website for me this is the best one. there is one thing i would like! i rewatch many movies and series even anime. but i cant put it in that ive watched it twice. i know it would be a big update, but i think its worth it. that you could somehow put, rewatched where you can choose watched, dropped it, hold. then there would be a rewatched, and endless count on rewatched times.

    when you then press rewatch button, there…

      I am planning to create some sort of edit interface where it would be possible to enter the number how many times you re-watched and to reset the marked episodes. In idea stage right now. But currently no plans to keep a history of both times you watched the same episode only the last watched date would be saved.

    • Sync MAL & SIMKL

      Sync MAL & SIMKL so that whenever I mark an episode as watched/completed/not interested it automatically updates MAL. The way it is now, whenever I watch a new anime episode or update an anime to completed/Not interested/plan to watch I have to update it on both sides separately. Be great if I could update if on SIMKL and have it update on my MAL

      • A True Simkl Plugin For Plex

        I'm currently using the Simkl Webhook with Plex, which is good btw, but we need something that's a little more versatile, along the lines of a true Plex plugin, that's not restricted to just marking shows/movies as watched based on what's currently being watched with Plex. Something along the lines of the Trakt plugin, that can also be adjusted to Push all-time watched statuses, watched progress, ratings, lists, newly acquired shows, removed shows, etc associated with your entire Plex library over to Simkl, or Pull the aforementioned from your Simkl library and sync it with Plex. That would be ultimate…

        • Expand list of streaming options (i.e. Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Crackle, etc)

          Listed streaming options should be expanded to include Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Adult Swim, Crackle, TubiTV, and other popular streaming options. Reelgood is a competitor that has many of these options listed when on a title's information page.

          • Favourite shows

            As well as you can mark tv shows, series and cartoons as "watching" or "on hold". There should be a favourite option, so you can keep track of your favourite shows.

            Have a great day

            • Half star ratings

              Half star ratings. Being able to vote 8.5* instead of 8* or 9* would be really nice for more fine tuned ratings.

                    • Crunchyroll episode list incomplete

                      Simkl works mostly great, but there are crunchyroll episodes not indexed.
                      This also makes the scrobbler extension not to work.
                      For example:
                      https://simkl.com/anime/38636/one-piece/episode-385/ is available at https://www.crunchyroll.com/one-piece/episode-385-halfway-across-the-grand-line-arrival-at-the-red-line-658601

                        • Show the duration of the episodes of a series or anime

                          On the info of a tvshow/anime it show you how much it takes to see all the episodes of the tvshow/anime (for example: 5 hours)

                          Would be good if it show too, the duration of the episodes (for example, all the episodes last 25minutes usually)

                          and would be good too have the duration of the episode on the episode list

                          And if it is a tvshow that have different duration for episodes, show an aproximation.

                              • Send alerts when a tv show or movie is available on one of your streaming services like Reelgood.

                                A feature I've been wanting for a while is to get an alert when a movie or tv show is available on one of the streaming services I subscribe to. Reelgood does a great job at this, providing email, text, & push notifications. I would also love to be able to filter searches by what is available on my services and filtering out shows I've already seen. If Simkl had these features, it would completely replace Reelgood and Rotten Tomatoes for me.

                                What I am looking for in the perfect movie/tv tracking service in order of priority is:
                                1. search…

                                • Adding a new show without English translation

                                  If a TV show has not got a Title/Descriptions in English the TV show can not be added. Sometimes TV Shows that are not English spoken, have no translation on TVDB for theirs title. The TV show should be added anyways respecting it's original title and language.

                                  I've seen that happen to a show that has description in Spanish and English but the title is only in Spanish and Simkl refuses to recognize the show

                                  • Merge anime seasons into one show

                                    It would be much better if you could merge Seasons 1 & 2 of Attack On Titan, My Hero Academia, and any other anime in need on your site into one show.

                                      A Telegram bot would be nice. They offer a free API (https://core.telegram.org/bots). It could work like this: In a chat with the simkl bot, you send a command like /watched Star Trek DS9 E1S2 and it would add it to the watched list.

                                        Would be nice, that when i use the calender to see my tv shows/anime, that it would scroll automatically to the day of the month that is now.
