Anime types represent the medium for which an anime was first released.

NEEDS THE IMAGES THAT ARE USED TO DISPLAY TYPES (e.g. in mylist)

Movie

Anime that is first released as a movie in theatres.

OVA

Original Video Animations are animated films and series made specially for release in home-video formats (e.g. VHS, DVD, BluRay).

TV Series

Anime that is first released as a series on TV.

TV Special

Anime that is first released as a one-off, (generally) non-recurring episode/movie on TV. A TV special can have multiple episodes.
A notable differentiation from a normal TV series is that TV specials generally are not serialized. Further, if Japan/China/Korea specifies that it is a TV special, it is probably a TV special.

Music Video

Other

Anime that doesn't fall into any other category.
