Prose issues 2014[edit]

The tags are correct and there are prose issues in the article. The main issue is the lack of concision in the character summaries. It may be time to send this to FLRC. DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 20:12, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, there is a lot of work to do and I don't think I can handle all this. Tintor2 (talk) 21:38, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

genuine encyclopaedic content?[edit]

Since nobody so far seems to have cared about WP rotting away in murky corners - I certainly do. This type of "article" would probably not even be accepted by a fanzine. So incomprehensible the English, so blatantly irrelevant the singular facts, so insipid the renarrations. This is an truckload of tripe, unworthy to be included in any type of halfway seriously-minded encyclopaedia. Excuse me for probably having the majority of the manga fanboy universe against me. It's not just about this article (although I find it a particularly find specimen to illustrate the overall principle). I couldn't care less, actually. When I open a compilation of knowledge, I certainly do not expect to stumble upon confused and unreadable fiction every now and then. But this is what WP in its remote parts degenerates to, diluting search results for questions about serious matters, drawing part of the honorable community deeper and deeper in trivialities utterly detached from what is (still) generally known as "KNOWLEDGE". -- Kku 08:26, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

I put up for FLRC. You should participate. It will be up to consensus now. DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 09:13, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Gekko Hayate[edit]

I noticed that there was no Gekko Hayate on the list. Awesomeninja1589 (talk) 06:52, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Holy spoilers Batman.[edit]

I read this article for information on Fuu Yamanaka. After reading this article for 10 minutes, not only did I not get the info I was lookng for, I now know the names of Naruto's kids, who he marries and part of the ending of Shippuden. Is there anything that can be done so this article can be used by people who haven't read EVERY issue of the manga? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.66.190.112 (talk) 14:30, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Not possible... Robin. Check Wikipedia:Spoiler mostly "It is not acceptable to delete information from an article because you think it spoils the plot."Tintor2 (talk) 17:25, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

There are no dates in this article! I assume this is all stuff created somewhere in the past couple of decades, but there is absolutely no indication of that other than the fact that it's manga and anime. When were these characters first created? Etc. - Jmabel | Talk 16:53, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I'm confused. You mean the dates for websites or tankobon volumes?Tintor2 (talk) 19:37, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
For anything! If you read the article and don't have a context, you wouldn't even have an indication of what century this work is from! - Jmabel | Talk 21:25, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Take it easy. All sources have dates like "Studio Pierrot (August 12, 2007). "Team Kakashi Deployed". Naruto: Shippūden. TV Tokyo." Also, if Naruto uses a calendar it should be avoided at any costs for being WP:fancruft.Tintor2 (talk) 22:46, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
A reader should not have to read the footnotes to know what era a work is from. - Jmabel | Talk 19:27, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
We need footnotes to prove the article's information is truth.Tintor2 (talk) 20:04, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Of course. But, again, you also need some basic context in the body of the article. - Jmabel | Talk 15:58, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
What's more to it than a ch.#? This isn't going nowhere. I'll ask for a third opinion in the project.Tintor2 (talk) 20:45, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

It basically boils down to whether to include the years of the medium in the lead. It can be argued the main article is enough for this information. It becomes a matter of preference. DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 10:36, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
