I noticed someone wrote a scraper for ANN's DB for XBMC. And I was thinking it does a great job getting the correct META data. And it uses TheTVdb as a fallback to get fanart and images and any info that it couldn't find on ANN.

I was thinking you might be able to take advantage to better handle Anime. Also since ANN has alternative Titles for shows listed you have a better chance to get the correct The TVDBquery.

I noticed in my own exprence the TVDB is better for TV anime and The Movie DB is better for Movie Anime. The ANN's DB can be useful for finding shows with Alternative titles and the odd OVA that isn't in either of the TVDB or The Movie DB.
