Series Relationships

Kavita allows you to express relationships between different series. Unlike reading lists, linked series provide more context as to how different series relate to each other.

Kavita doesn't dictate any rules to how the relationships are used, however, we do have some suggestions below. When configuring a linked series, for everything but a Prequel or Sequel, Kavita will show a relationship back to the parent series.

prequel Story that occurred before the original.
alternative setting Same universe/world/reality/timeline, completely different characters.
