There's also a meta discussion about cleaned up answer, but right now there's nothing that explain what constitutes a good answer to an identification request question and how to write one.

So what can I do to make a better answer for question

1 Answer 1


1) Image or video identification

2) Text-based identification

  • Name of the series
  • Official image of the series (preferably not fanart image)
  • Why do you think it is the series based on the description? What are the matching points?
  • Short description of the series
  • Link to wiki or any anime site (e.g. MAL or Anime-Planet)

With these, there should be enough information for the OP to judge properly without having to go search around himself. And the answer itself should be of decent quality as well.
