As you can see with me posting again it happened again earlier than I thought....basically because I had to rescan everything from scratch since I tested the regexp's posted here a few pages back for episode recognition. I activated and located xbmc.log. From what I can tell there it gets interesting at 20:49:27 where it basically enters an infinite loop trying to get info for the SD Gundam Mark III series there.
Here is my log.
I also know that it ends just there in the middle, this is not my fault however cause as I said xbmc just freezes when I try to press cancel, shutdown or anything else, seems the freeze itself is not logged anymore. Hope someone can fix this.

I have a problem with scanning large series like Lupin III second tv series which consists of 155 episodes and series three which consists of 50 episodes. XBMC will just hang while trying to scan these. However the My Anime plugin in Mepo works perfectly which also uses anidb. Too bad there isn't a way to port that plugin or just create our own. But there doesn't seem to be much of an interest in doing so.

I personally have no problems scanning large series.
I have been thinking it could be that the regexp mentioned earlier in this thread and this scraper don't work well together some times. i use a much simpler expression and rename my files to have ep## in them and look for that pattern.
Of course if someone else uses the same tactic and does experience these hangs this theory doesn't stand.
I'm afraid any errors in this scraper will be there for a while since the last dev (bambi73) hasn't been on here for a while and I don't think any other dev feels much for his scraper. Too bad, since it has some advantages over the ann scraper (like better posters if there aren't any present on thetvdb and a simpler naming scheme(eg. Hakuouki vs Hakuōki))

Hmm I've been using the renamer on anidb and it has worked for some series. But large one's it just stays on the scanner thing. Though XBMC is still functional it thinks it's still scanning when obviously it's not doing anything. Seems all 155 episodes of Lupin series two is in one season on TVdb. So that's good I guess.

One thing that works sometimes when the scraper doesn't find the right series is to go to the series folder in file mode and query the info manually. If there hasn't been any info on that series it will look for it.

Thanks I'll give that a try. I tried scanning Lupin III second tv series again and it failed. I used the renamer on anidb to rename the files which worked great though it still failed. There are 155 in the series and it's even listed as one season on TVDB. So I'm not sure what the problem is
Though short series (40 episodes or less) works perfectly!

For series that fail using this scraper you could use the anime news network (ann) scraper. If it weren't for the few things I don't like about that scraper (mainly the naming convention of ann and the low quality of the default thumbs) I would be using that one.
I also tried to scan a dummy folder with SD gundam MK III naming and some dummy files in it and it failed as well. The scraper doesn't seem to fail with an error. It just loops the TVDB part.

I have the ANN enabled maybe I'll give that one a try. Sucks the Anidb scraper doesn't look like it'll ever be updated/fixed :/
Btw it doesn't give me an error either it too just loops for me

for some reason I can't get the anidb scrapper to work... I'm testing it with a few video files with a folder structure like this
Anime --> Bleach --> Bleach - Episode 302.avi
Anime --> Otome Yokai Zakuro --> Otome Yokai Zakuro - 01.mkv
however when I try and get XBMC to scan for the new file it will scan for about a second before finding nothing other then the folder for Bleach
