Emby right now handle regular tv shows and movies very well, however it's fell short on Anime support be it directly or via the anime plugin.
There is few features that would vastly make emby better able to handle anime.
1. Absolute order support
seeing as the majority of the anime groups uses anidb numbering, emby fails so hard on it right now, trying anything over 100 as either special or different season. e.g. see the attached photo. "Case Closed - 935.mkv" treated as "Case Closed S09E35", even tho it was not implied.
2. If there is no season folder present in the folder or the filename treat them as Season 01.
Case example, "/media/Anime/Case Closed/Case Closed - (\d+).mkv" , emby would automatically tag them as Season 01 for display purposes.
3. Use Proper anime scanner.
Absolute Series Scanner by ZeroQI possibly the best anime scanner, you could find that can handle all sort of anime naming convictions, if possible try to use it or learn from it.
