Heidi, Girl of the Alps[edit]

There was an mini article for Alps no Shoujo Heidi and a larger one for Heidi, Girl of the Alps. I've merged them and decided to keep the English title, and redirect the Romanji title. I've adjusted the template so the link doesn't redirect. Ninja neko 13:34, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Little Women II[edit]

The title "Little Women II: Jo's boys" is wrong. The Wakakusa Monogatari Nan to Jou Sensei series is based on another one of the Little Women books: Little Men. Little Men tells the story of Jo as a teacher, Jo's boys tells the story of her actual children. I'm changing it to the English title Tale of Young Grass: Nan and Miss Jo which may be a bit long but will not cause as much confusion. Ninja neko 18:09, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

"Tale of Young Grass: Nan and Miss Jo" is not the better choice because this is the literal translation of the Japanese title into English. "Little Women II: Jo's Boys" is the official English title for this anime and should thus be used. It's true that the anime itself is an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's "Little Men," not "Jo's Boys," but this is still the official title that they gave to the series. T.W.

This is something that should be raised on the talk page of the article in question. This is only a navigational template, and is not meant to present any type of commentary on the articles it links together. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 16:54, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Excellent template[edit]

I just noticed this at the bottom of some WMT pages, it is a great accessory to the company page to help us navigate the various series. AweCo (talk) 16:31, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Years[edit]

I hope nobody minds but I added years to it since I think it makes it easier to navigate. You can see this is done in others like Template:Nick Jr.. AweCo (talk) 23:22, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
