Period missing from Anime series title causing 0 episode search results

Sonarr version (exact version): 3.0.9.1555
Mono version (if Sonarr is not running on Windows): 6.12.0.182
OS: Linux
Debug logs: https://hastebin.com/raw/vicuzipaya
Description of issue:
The full name of series (NieR:Automata Ver1.1a) has a period in the name and the info log shows the period in the title before searching indexers. However, when the Newsznab query URL is built, the period is no longer present and the indexer returns 0 results matched.

When I curl the URL in the log (with my API key), I also get 0 results.

Adding the period back in the URL to curl again, I get multiple episode results returned.

Alternatively, changing period to a space (encoded as + or %20) and results are still returned.

Can this be resolved with an alternate series title?

+1 for me (the same series too).
