A Guide to Abridged Series on IMDb

This is a list of all the Abridged Series and Abridged Movies currently found on IMDb. My goal is merely to have them all in one place, making it easy to navigate to all the titles in this minority genre here on the site.

Abridged Series are internet-based series that most often abridge or parody Japanese anime, although any show (even live-action series) can be abridged. Abridgers often go by screen names, and release their work on YouTube, DailyMotion or their own personal webpages.

Feel free to correct me in the comments/replies if I list something incorrectly. I'll fix it eventually.
