I watch a lot of anime, but when i try to add shows manually to my library i get the message that the anime show cannot be found. In xbmc there are addons for anime information that can be downloaded from the websites www.anidb.net, www.animenewsnetwork.com and www.bestanime.co.kr. Maybe you can use one of their api to download information about anime into trakt (www.anidb.net would be the best one, they have the most extensive database on anime). It would certainly help me and others to expand their library to more tv shows that TVDB does not have in their database.

I just looked up several episodes of anime that i couldn't find in trakt. They are currently present in TVDB. Does trakt only get an update from TVDB when someone actually watches that tv show?

Yes, shows and episode info is pull on demand and cached when someone watches a new show.

Not planned for now, will revisit if the todo list shrinks.
