MP-TV Series is a wonderful plugin; I use it for all of my television shows and it works great!
However, when it comes to anime, I always had nothing but problems. I had to rename most of my collection just to get my files recognized.
This plugin doesn't rely on filenames at all! It hashes each file and compares it to AniDB, which is a database that keeps track of every encoding and fansub group that has ever released anything, as well as anything you ever wanted to know about any anime ever released.
The ease of file management is only a fraction of what makes this plugin so great. It does everything I've ever asked for and so much more!
