I'll keep it short and sweet. I don't like watching anime with such short episodes. I would like to be able to see the length of each episode without having to click on it. And if possible to be able to just filter them out all-together. I'm sure some people could use the filter in the opposite regard and look for shorter anime episodes if they don't have time.

That's a great suggestion. In the meantime I'll recommend the Rotten Sushi group that asharka maintains.There's a link on the info page to an Index that helps find shows by a variety of characteristics, including length (though right now I think it's more set up to help find the short shows than to explicitly exclude them.)

Yeah I hate that feeling while browsing through new simulcasts of finding something that looks good and it ends up being a 3 (or less) minute disappointment. Sometimes I don't even notice the time on the video until the short ends, those are the times I really get annoyed :P

So yeah. Making them identifiable without having to start the video would be amazing.

I don't think I'd want 10-15 minute episodes to be in the filter though. Those tend to be a cut above the rest.

How about a colored border around the picture for the series? One for 5 min or less shorts, another for mid range episodes in the 10-15 min range, another for the average 24 min episode and one last color for movies?
