      • Add info from (and links to) Kitsu, Trakt, Wikipedia etc.

        Add info from (and links to) Kitsu, Trakt, Wikipedia etc.
        When viewing movies & tv shows, we are shown info from IMDB about any given movie/tv show.
        When viewing a page for an anime, we are shown info about that anime from MyAnimeList.
        I would love to see Kitsu added to the anime pages, and Trakt + Wikipedia to Movies/TV Shows/Anime's.
        Other great sources that could also be added are.:
        Wikia Fandom pages
        Subreddits
        AniList
        Anime-Planet
        AniDB
        AnimeNewsNetwork

          The sites you mentioned only use TheTVDB, TheMovieDB. Simkl gets info from the same sources plus multiple other sources you mentioned already.

                • Hide shows in "My List" once all episodes watched much like tvmaze.com

                  I'm overloaded by the amount of shows I watch, it's a little embarrassing. Anyway, I'm on a mission I guess. Once thing that strikes me as odd, when I complete all current episodes of a show, it still shows in My List. I would much rather see the shows that I am watching, but not currently completed than to see all shows I'm watching, completed to date or not. tvmaze.com, site I used before, would make any show with completed episodes drop off the list until a new episode came out. Best attribute of their site.

                    You can now click “Hide watched” in your TV and Anime “Watching” lists to filter out shows where you watched all episodes.

                  • "Specials" considered as normal episodes

                    For example in Downton Abbey, all season finales are called "Special", but they are actually just normal episodes. When I want to mark those as watched, they don't appear on my dashbord and I have to go to the "Specials" section to mark them. But very often this section changes its order and e.g. Special 5 becomes Special 8 or something like that.
                    At least for Downton Abbey, changing those Specials to normal episodes would be great, so they don't get mixed up with Behind the Scenes episodes or so!

                      • Add app for better management!

                        Add support to players or some app which is integrated into explorer so i could right click movie/serie and select i have watched this or something like that. Doing these things manually is too demanding.

                          Simkl has Chrome extension AND Windows app for video players like What is Simkl TV Tracker app?
                          ← Software
                          At the moment, our Windows app has the ability to demonstrate how the application is already capable of detecting almost any TV show and Anime that can be downloaded from the internet and played through most popular video players.

                          You can download the beta version from https://simkl.com/apps/
                          With the help of the Simkl TV Tracker app you can detect most TV or Anime episodes downloaded from the internet or downloaded through iTunes.

                          Instructions: Install Simkl TV Tracker, open any TV episode video file. In 7–15 seconds (it may take longer times for detecting rare Anime) you will see a small popup at the bottom right corner with the name of the TV show and it’s episode number that you’re watching.
                          PS: Beta version is for demonstration purposes only, for Windows 7\8\10…

                            You can find total count for shows and movies in Profile / Stats and in My TV list (link from the dashboard) at the bottom of the list will be stats for all your shows and movies for that list
