Well clearly the page lacked formality and it looked more like a timeline of his life. I tried to make it formal as much as possible. Is it okay to take the tag off now? And the discussions should be about the article itself, not the celebrity. mirageinred 20:52, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Great, it's a lot better; however, certain sections could still use a lot of work. I will remove the tag on the whole article and tag those sections appropriately. --C S (Talk) 10:33, 15 July 2006 (UTC)
alright mirageinred 06:00, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Could you tell me specifically which sections need work? mirageinred 06:15, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, I should have done a better job of tagging; I've added some more specific tags which should help clear things up. I believe the section "Rise to fame" is the most problematic, but other parts have some problems (not as serious IMHO).
One general thing that can be fixed is to do better sourcing, e.g. all these statistics such as "viewership was such-and-such percentage". But my main issue with "rise to fame" is the tabloid style and unencyclopedic tone. "Of course, his fans were shocked and angered". That's just one example, but if you look, I'm sure you will see several others. I call this kind of thing "tabloid" because it's the kind of gossip one might read in a supermarket tabloid. The reason I don't just remove this, however, is that there may be something to be kept here. Perhaps there was some public outcry, something that could be suitably referenced and included, e.g. articles in fanzines, commentaries on TV, etc. But otherwise, it just appears to me to be unverifiable opinion. Also, the tone is too conversational. The article as a whole suffered greatly from that, and now it's much better, thanks to you, but that section still has a problem with the tone at a few places. --C S (Talk) 03:09, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
I don't know what's with this article. The structure of the "Rise to fame" section just makes it so hard to fix it for some reason. mirageinred 23:13, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for all your work; it has improved the page tremendously. There are still spots where citations are really needed and I've tagged some of those. But generally, sourcing (and removal of unsubstantiated remarks) has been good enough that I don't think there really is a need to put a source tag on the entire article. So I removed it. The tone issue has been minimized also. --C S (Talk) 03:30, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Beautiful Life and Beautiful life[edit]

You would think that those two pages would be identical, but they are not. The first one is about the TV series and Beautiful life is a page about an Australian singer's album. Which one should be moved under a different name? mirageinred 04:14, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

In this case, it's improper style to have the second word uncapitalized, so whoever created that page should have used "Beautiful Life". So it seems here that we have two things with the same title; in that case the proper thing to do is create a disambiguation page for "Beautiful Life" and then the TV series should be "Beautiful Life (TV series)" and the album should be "Beautiful Life (album)". The only reason one article would still stay under "Beautiful Life" is if it was undeniably the primary topic for that phrase, which I wouldn't say is true here. --C S (Talk) 15:35, 26 July 2006 (UTC)
I see. I couldn't make a disambiguation page, but I renamed both pages. mirageinred 05:29, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
I created the disambig page. Take a look to see how it is done.--C S (Talk) 06:00, 27 July 2006 (UTC)
Thank you very much mirageinred 19:06, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Kimutaku syndrome[edit]

I'm not really sure what this is; it's apparently some kind of cultural phenomenon. Somebody who knows about this should write something about it. --C S (Talk) 03:27, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Hmm.. I couldn't find it anywhere on the internet... mirageinred 17:32, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Move requested for primary topic disambig[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

I've requested this page be moved back to Takuya Kimura as primary topic disambiguation applies. The move of the Kimura article to Takuya Kimura (singer) should not have been done without discussion. It seems that someone wanting to disambig between the baseball player and the actor/singer did not understand the disambiguation policy. --C S (Talk) 11:21, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

I agree with C S. The singer is significantly more notable than the baseball player, and so this article must be the primary topic.--Endroit 20:18, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
I also agree the page shouldn't have been moved. We should keep the disambig page, though, at Takuya Kimura (disambiguation). ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 20:52, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Yeah. One or the other should definitely be at Takuya Kimura; if you guys say the SMAP member is more notable than the yakyuuu player, then so it is. LordAmeth 22:05, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Strong support for moving the singer's page back to the main title and handling this with a dablink. Dekimasuよ! 02:30, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

This article has been renamed from Takuya Kimura (singer) to Takuya Kimura as the result of a move request. --Stemonitis 10:57, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
