GA Angel Soldier A - Dual Angels[edit]

(Find sources: "GA Angel Soldier A - Dual Angels" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · JSTOR)

Alleged to be A7 and G11 csd eligible, however the game itself and the material are in decent enough shape that this could be considered a good stub. I checked for a copyvio, and found the material copy/pasted from a wikia site that claims material published is copyleft, in the absence of any other compelling reason to speedy delete I think it better for the article to be afd'd for community input on the article's fate. TomStar81 (Talk) 03:11, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Delete - I nominated this page for CSD G11 and A7 since I felt it both relied on promotional content and does not have a claim of significance. All the article states is that it was a scroll shooter made in 2004, how the game is played, and an external link to a gaming website. The article does not meet the general notability guidelines and therefore should be deleted. Aerospeed (Talk) 03:21, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

Aerospeed, to prevent the deletion of the page GA Angel Soldier A - Dual Angels, I need anyone who can fix it, making it meet the general notability guidelines. It's not a promotion, swear. I have never experienced contributing Wikipedia since I experienced contributing Wikia. Can you help me fix it? Muhammadrizkya (talk) 21:50, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

@Muhammadrizkya: Unfortunately, we have different guidelines here on Wikipedia about what kinds of topics should be included than on a Wikia wiki. Generally, the notability of a topic is established by the availability of sources which give an in-depth discussion of that topic. If you can demonstrate that this video game has received significant coverage from third-party reliable sources, such as newspapers, books, critical reviews, etc., then you can establish the subject's notability. Unfortunately, if you are unable to find such sources discussing a topic, no amount of editing can overcome a notability issue. Advice I often give is the amnesia test:
  1. Forget everything you know about the subject you want to write about—act as if you know nothing.
  2. Go online and do research on the subject, focusing more closely on third-party news sources and less on sources affiliated with the subject; be sure to check the reliability of the sources (Wikia wikis and personal WordPress blogs are not considered reliable enough for Wikipedia)
  3. From your research, and your research only, write an article
  4. If you find that there are few or no reliable sources to use, the subject may not be suitable for Wikipedia at this time.

  • Note: The content of the article appears to have been taken directly from this Wikia article. Accordingly, I have attributed the content to Wikia, since it is available under CC-BY-SA. Mz7 (talk) 22:31, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete. Article topic lacks significant coverage from reliable, independent sources. (?) It did not have any meaningful hits in a video game reliable sources search. If I could find any decent source about the game, I'd consider redirecting it to Galaxy Angel, but it's not mentioned there and the game appears obscure, so delete for now. Please ping me if more (non-English and offline) sources show in the future. czar  07:26, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Keep - Calling SHIMMER a minor league is laughable. Reliable reference indicates notability for the team. Current champions in a major promotion, thus fulfilling the WP:ATHLETE (yes, it does apply) requirement for having competed at the fully professional level of their sport. GaryColemanFan (talk) 02:16, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Delete - No indication of lasting notability for this team from a small-time independent wrestling promotion. Trivial coverage in a single source relating to one of the team's memebers is indication of unsuitability for an article. WP:ATHLETE nowhere close to being met.

The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposed deletion of the article below. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page (such as the article's talk page or in a deletion review). No further edits should be made to this page.

The result was snow close/speedy delete as a blatant hoax. Unless there were serious spelling errors with the title in Japanese, the complete and total lack of any and all Japanese or English sources (that doesn't rely on this Wikipedia page) is very, very telling.

A possible hoax or just not a very notable anime. A five minute google search and I'm unable to come across any reference to this shows existence. Additionally it is "Phoenix" (so if this ends up with a decision to keep it should be moved) Winner 42 Talk to me! 16:44, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Could you list some of them here? That way it can bs assessed if the sources sre reliable or not.--69.157.253.160 (talk) 05:15, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
Manga Updates is an scanlation indexing site and therefore not an appropriate source and Anime Vice is user edited and not usable either. Neither would show notability anyway. SephyTheThird (talk) 10:14, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep. It's got entries in both The Anime Encyclopedia and ANN. The title should be changed to Modern Dog Tales Bow Wow. Upload I get it now. Modern Dog Tales Bow Wow is the translated version of the anime. There isn't a good reason to have a separate article on the manga, which was never translated. Confabulationist (talk) 12:33, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
  • You know that you are linking to the same source that I already gave? It is a reference to the anime version, not to the manga. Confabulationist (talk) 00:40, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

  • Comment: I'd recommend making a series page for the manga and the anime. I'm looking at the Japanese entry via Google Translate and it looks like the series was fairly well loved in Japan, as it spawned a 40 episode animated series, a theatrical film, and a Super Nintendo game. I'll try to merge this into the article, as that shows a pretty high notability threshold for Japanese manga that there were so many adaptations of the work. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 06:02, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Weak keep. This is kind of troublesome: we don't really have any sources and given the common-ness of the title and the obvious language barrier, finding sources is fairly difficult. All I can really go on for notability are the various adaptations. If it was just that the series had an OAV or one film, I'd be inclined to say that we should delete the page. However what we have in this instance is a manga series that not only had a theatrical film (albeit a short one), but had an anime series on one of the most well-known Japanese television networks and a video game adaptation of the series. It's not Ranma 1/2 or anything, but this isn't really the norm for most manga series out there- especially manga series released before the current advances made it far cheaper and easier to produce animation and video games. The existence of these things shows me that this series enjoyed far more attention than some of the other manga series of the era and I'd be extremely, extremely surprised if it ended up that the manga had a TV series, film, and video game but never received substantial media attention. In this instance I'd say that the amount of adaptations gives the reasonable argument that these sources do exist but never made it on to the Internet. It's not the way I usually like to vote for inclusion on Wikipedia since I'm very much a "show me the sources" type of editor, but a 80s/90s manga series getting an animated adaptation, film, and a video game is pretty out of the norm for earlier manga series to the point that this in and of itself would show notability. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 06:45, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Keep - I'll admit, sources for this are hard to come by, even in Japanese. But the fact that it got an anime adaptation, let alone one that's 40 episodes long, is probably enough for it to gain notability. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 08:29, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment: I don't give notability opinions, but I posted these at WT:ANIME and no one seems to have noticed: [7] [8] [9] Tezero (talk) 02:46, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
  • I saw them, I cant read reference 1, reference 2 can only be used as an external link as it is not reliable and reference 3 I also cant read. So of those three two are possibly good to use. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 00:07, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
