Absolute Number for Anime
As an Anime fan, i usually see the chapter as Absolute number. For example: One Piece S17E14 - Scheme of the Century - Doflamingo Gets Moving, I name it as 642 or 1x642. When I add new chapters i need to go to my collection on the Trakt.tv webpage and add it manually. You should come up with an idea on how to solve this problem. Thanks in advance :)
Why was this declined?
This has been exposed in the UI: http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/5111681-update-api-absolute-episode-numbers
HULU has a different ordering of the season (season 17 here is only season 11 there). Absolute ordering makes this a lot less confusing
Also note that hulu does reveal the absolute episode number.
