How to name "Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Alternative Architecture"

architekt909architekt909 Posts: 3Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I spent the last 30 minutes trying to get Plex to recognize this and can't figure out how I'm suppose to name it. I have a folder in my TV shows directory named "Ghost in the Shell Arise - Alternative Architecture". Inside there is a folder, "Season 1". Inside there are 5 files, for each of the 5 "Border" releases: http://thetvdb.com/?tab=seasonall&id=293491&lid=7 . They are all named in this form at this point:

Ghost in the Shell Arise Alternative Architecture - S01E01 - Ghost Pain

I don't even remember what name permutations I've tried at this point. Anyway, how can I get Plex to recognize this? Thanks!

    late answer.. (Because i'm struggling with the same now)
    The naming is messed up because it isn't the GITS Arise AA tv-seires. The 'show' is a 10-episode mashed up thing from the OrignalVideoAnimation( OVA)
    Here is the listing in correct order:
    ARISE - OVA Films, Alternative Architecture, and The NEW Movie (2013-15):
    1. Ghost in the Shell (ARISE) - Border 01 OVA - Ghost Pain (2013)
    2. Ghost in the Shell (ARISE) - Border 02 OVA - Ghost Whispers (2013)
    3. Ghost in the Shell (ARISE) - Border 03 OVA - Ghost Tears (2014)
    4. Ghost in the Shell (ARISE) - Border 04 OVA - Ghost Stands Alone (2014)
    5. Ghost in the Shell (ARISE - A.A) - Pyrophoric Cult, Part 1 of 2 (2015)
    6. Ghost in the Shell (ARISE - A.A) - Pyrophoric Cult, Part 2 of 2 (2015)
    7. Ghost in the Shell (ARISE) - The NEW Movie (2015)

    Only the two A.A titles are from the tv show.

    Only way to get it to show in a somewhat orderly fashion in Plex is the Specials format. But that messes with how you watch the show (uh movies).

    Can one get Plex to make a "one-movie listing" for all the OVAs in "one movie"?

    This show is in constant flux on TheTVDB it seems.
    http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=293491&lid=7

    Right now, if your episodes are not divided into 2 files, you must add them as 'specials':

    anime /
       Ghost in the Shell Arise Alternative Architecture /
          Specials /
             Ghost in the Shell Arise Alternative Architecture - s00e01 - GITS New Movie.ext
             Ghost in the Shell Arise Alternative Architecture - S00E02 - Ghost Pain.ext
             Ghost in the Shell Arise Alternative Architecture - S00E03 - Ghost Whispers.ext
             Ghost in the Shell Arise Alternative Architecture - S00E04 - Ghost Tears.ext
             Ghost in the Shell Arise Alternative Architecture - S00E05 - Ghost Stands Alone.ext
