Sorry about the question, ill try making it more clear. As i understand you want the anime plugin to do this. but atm anime does this. When anime plugin is in list layout mode its fine. Simply change the list to years just like in MP. The problem occurs when in any other layout, banner, or wide banner. Since these layouts use banners if we were to change the list to year dates, you would just get a bunch of blank banner placeholders. Both tvseries and moving pictures dont allow sort by years so i couldnt find any solutions there . One way would be to disable banner layouts while in years view. But this would remove that functionalty from the banners, which feels like a step backwards.  I just realised another way which seems to be ok. In the year’s selection list currently in anime plugin, add "list years" or something similar on the top of the year’s selection list. Selecting this view will change the anime list to years just like in MP videos, but by having it a separate option, it leaves the current year view settings alone for the banner views. The plugin currently doesnt remember view settings, so if you want it to start on that view, a feature to remeber last view would also need to be added.
