Incorrect episode from sequel series added to FLCL, mistakenly listing it as a TV Series (should be Miniseries)

I noticed today that an episode of FLCL's sequel series (FLCL Alternative) was added, likely by mistake, to the original miniseries' episode count. This has resulted in messing up the years and incorrectly listing it as a TV Series when it should be a Miniseries, which it has been listed as for years. I've submitted the keyword tv-mini-series but believe that the mistaken episode might need to be removed first. Please correct when possible. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0279077/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Adam One,

FLCL Alternative is listed as a feature film and not a TV series. A Title Correction for the 2018 series is needed.

The title is currently listed this way.

FLCL Alternative (2018)

In the Title Correction section, retype the title in the form this way:

"FLCL Alternative" (2018)

Write a brief statement in the Explanation Box that the title is a TV mini-series, not a feature film.

After the page has been processed, you add any missing episode pages to the title.

For the episode posted on the incorrect series page, another Title Correction will need to be submitted.
The episode title is listed this way.

"FLCL" (2000) {Flying Memory (#3.1)}

It will eventually need to be retyped this way.

"FLCL Alternative" (2018) {Flying Memory (#1.1)}

If Flying Memory is the first episode for the new series, type the episode number as noted above.

I hope this helps. Please write back if you have any more questions.

Does that mean that once the episode is reallocated FLCL will once again be listed as a tv miniseries?

The keyword "TV-mini-series" will be added the title page separately; if you have already submitted this keyword please post the submission reference number here and I can check on the status?

Hi Michelle,

Thanks! My reference is #181106-214613-750000. I'll work on the title correction and hopefully the keyword will take sooner even if its incorrectly labelled as having 2 seasons .

Hi Will,

I guess the issue is that if the second comment on this thread is true then several other submissions regarding title corrections will have to be processed before the status can be reverted as a mini-series again, and it makes little sense as to why the episode of a sequel series was accepted in the first place (it even jumps from "season 1" to "season 3" on the episode listing itself, skipping the non-existent season 2 altogether). Any thoughts on this?

Hi Adam -

Since "FLCL" is already listed as a TV-Series, the keyword submission and the title corrections will not conflict with one another (there would be an issue for example, if the title was listed as a film and you were trying to add a mini-series keyword, in which case a title type correction should be submitted before the keyword).

So your keyword submission (which is still pending review) will not be impacted by any episode title corrections.  I hope this helps!

Hi Michelle,
Thanks! Is that the case even when the title incorrectly has multiple seasons under its name? Regarding title corrections I think it's a matter or reallocating the misplaced episode to FLCL Alternative which is mistakenly listed as a film. Does that make sense?

It does. Please follow the steps listed above by GMJ to change https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7112162/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 to a TV series, then once this has gone through please submit a title correction on the episode exactly as listed by GMJ to list it to the correct series page.

Regards,
Will
