Just wondering because on Myanimelist it shows them as seperate, but they are still the same series so I was wondering how to classify how many series I've finished.

I've moved this to the Polls forum, since that's where all Poll topics belong, regardless of subject matter.

My answer is: It depends. If MAL has them separate, and I used MAL for tracking what I'd watched then I'd count them as separate.

I'm not sure exactly how MAL does it, but I usually tend to think of a series as a new thing if there's a significant break in time between one part ending and the other part starting (like one part ends at the end of the Winter season, and a new part doesn't start up until the beginning of Summer or Fall). Also if they give the new season a new title, even if it is contiguous, I'd count it separate (I think this happens only rarely and I can't think of an example off the top of my head.)

Whoops, it was originally put under poll, but i accidentally changed it because i thought that it would be put under the polls section automatically or something.
