  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.

    • It would be good if there was a way to find "movies like this." Just plug in what you're looking for and SIMKL genereates suggestions.

      Similar to TasteDive and Movie-Map.

      • TV Shows/Movies Poster & Backdrop Artwork Submissions

        Would it be possible one day to suggest or perhaps submit an updated poster and/or backdrop artwork for a particular tv show or movie? For example, Hawaii Five-0 has updated art reflecting their new characters...

        I think it would be a cool feature if we could submit possible candidates for updating tv shows and movie artwork here at Simkl, or at the very least offer suggestions for you guys to consider on the backend.

        • 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

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • tv show/ anime list improvement

                  i feel the idea of having image and a description when you click on dashboard then if you go to TV list/ anime list having images and a description there would help seeing the title alone makes it difficult whether if i wanna re-watch or not

                      • Clearly list streaming options from a title's main page

                        Right now you have to click on an episode to see the available streaming options, but there should be a clear list of available streaming options for the series in general from the main information page of any title. This is a feature on the mobile apps.

                                The ability to switch to rating scales other than integers from 1-10 would be useful. I prefer a 0.x-10.0 scale (or 1-100 or whatever) for more fine tuned rankings.

                                  • Better lists and overviews.

                                    In the 'currently watching', you should have a divider. Over the line should the 'my list' that is displayed on your profile, and underneath it, all 'currently watching' that you are up to date on.
                                    ----------------
                                    Also, Adding a 'on hold' status. You sometimes want to take a break - and not have it in 'currently', but not in the 'dropped either'.
                                    ---------------
                                    Also, would be nice with custom lists. Not as a status, but where you can gather things like 'movies I recommend for dates' etc.

                                      • Display episodes as an overview list with names and watched button. (For unordered TV series)

                                        Simki works well for series that are logically ordered into seasons, but not for episode which are disjoint. I'm watching episodes of the NHK documentary series Begin Japanology:
                                        https://simkl.com/tv/20325/begin-japanology/episodes/

                                        I would like to be able to easily mark some episodes watched, but I haven't watched them in any particular order.

                                        Currently I can mark episodes by season, but without labels, which is useless since episode number has no meaning. If I go to the episode page, I have to individually click into an episode to mark it as viewed, which is horrifically inconvenient.

                                        What I need is an option to…
