Move/Change title[edit]

Maybe the paged should be moved to "To LOVE-Ru" (without a hyphen between "To" and "LOVE"). I know that both ways of writing are used frequently, but in the japanese wikpedia, the title is written like that, and also at amazon.co.jp. Vinnivince 20:42, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

It is comics otaku resident in Japan. In I have made article ja:To LOVEる -とらぶる- translation of To LOVEru (but deleted immediately), but after all To LOVEru being more right without my knowing existence of this article in the past?

they...[edit]

seem to be taking their time releasing it in japan in volume format...btw it needs to come to the U.S.

Main Characters[edit]

Can Mikado really be considered a main character? Vinnivince 15:09, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Not really. She is more of a supportive secondary character. I've separated the Characters section into Main and Minor and will include more about the rest in due time. As far as main characters go Lala, Rito, Haruna, and Yami are givens. Zaistin and Mikan I'm having some debate placing as well as Risa and Mio. Fox816 02:25, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

RE : Mikado's name[edit]

According to this personal website, the source about Ryoko Mikado's name is the manga vol.5, p.5. Does someone check the authenticity of this information? I don't have this manga series.--Swind (talk) 18:06, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Mikan in the Major Character section[edit]

hey did you know that mikan is not a main character. she is just rito's sister —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.27.18.121 (talk) 01:06, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

That is a fair point, she doesn't make many appearances in the story besides select chapters.Kraker2k (talk) 22:15, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Genre?[edit]

I believe the "ECCHI" genre should be included in the genres for this anime. Does anyone have any problems with this? Discuss it. I'll change it in a few days if there are no objections. Or, whoever wants can change it now, I have no objections to that.---Mangler13- (talk) 17:37, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Ecchi is not a genre, and thus should not be included.-- 22:46, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
I believe someone removed it from the genre per that reason few weeks ago. --staka (TC) 00:05, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
That someone was me.-- 01:21, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Taken from Anime:

Anime has many genres typically found in any mass media form. Such genres include action, adventure, children's stories, comedy, drama, erotica (more specifically ecchi or hentai), medieval fantasy, occult/horror, romance, and science fiction.

To Love-Ru fits the description of ecchi and as you can see ecchi is a sub-genre, but it's a genre nonetheless. In addition, many sites use ecchi as a genre when classifying anime.---Mangler13- (talk) 04:55, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

This had been brought up at the project MOS page at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style (anime- and manga-related articles)/Archive 3#Is "Ecchi" a genre?. Plus, I could just as easily write off the entry you quoted in the anime article because it is unsourced, and thus is probably large-in-part original research. And while many sites may use "ecchi" as a genre, this could just be a mass misuse of the term. If you want this to go any further, I'd suggest bringing up another discussion at WT:MOS-AM about it.-- 06:29, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

That's good enough for me. Thanks for the incite. Guess I'll make sure to remove ecchi if I see it as a genre on any other pages from now on. However, shouldn't there be some kind of label somewhere on pages of animes that are considered ecchi, so that if a parent is looking up an anime for their child they know that it is not suitable?---Mangler13- (talk) 21:06, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

That's what Category:Ecchi anime and manga is used for.-- 21:35, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

That does successfully warn people. However, how many people actually see that page? Most parents only look at the pages of the animes their child watches/wants to see. So, many if not most people do not actually see that page. I'm really not trying to argue with you, I'll be the first to admit that I'm new to editing and you seem to know quite a bit. So, I'm trying to figure out what needs to be done for animes to be labeled properly on the actual pages. If it should not be place in the genre section, is there another place near the top of the page it could go?---Mangler13- (talk) 00:31, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Well, it's not as if Wikipedia is really the #1 source to go to for anime content information. With all the content problems with Wiki, and it's poor reputation, I don't think it's really an issue to be worrying about what the parents are looking for. Plus, Anime News Network is linked on most anime/manga articles on Wiki, and that's a much more reliable source, and generally more helpful in terms of anime/manga information. From what I have seen, if a series is notable in its ecchiness, it'll likely be noted in the lead, but most ecchi series don't do this from what I've seen. And then there are those ecchi anime that have been adapted from eroge (Kimiaru), and the fact that that it says in the article that the source material is an adult game should give the less informed parents some idea what the anime may entail, even if itself is not adult in content. And then that too is not always full-proof, since Kanon and Air were both originally eroge, but both anime are not ecchi in the least. Besides, categories are there to aide Wikipedia readers in finding pages that are related to each other. It's not so much to ask for anyone to scroll to the bottom and see what categories the series is in.-- 01:24, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Well then, I guess that's about all that can be said and done about it. I really do appreciate all your incite, I may know quite a bit about anime but I'm still relatively new to how wiki works.---Mangler13- (talk) 03:23, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

There was a rude and inappropriate comment after the genres. Someone is trying to be too smart about it. Did you wrote your dissertation about anime-genres? Well, adding ecchi as a genre would help people have a good approximation of the content by just reading 3 words. Harem-comedy and science-fiction does not describe it accurately enough. Science-fiction-part is just there to create the erotic situations ie: ecchi, and harem does not imply ecchi, even if statistically suggests. So I do not think your definition of genre should be the guideline. btw.: is "harem-comedy" a genre according to your definition? Summary: if millions of people can tell from a given word, what a piece of art/entertainment is like, than that word can be used as genre! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.249.151.28 (talk) 18:05, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

I still largely disagree with the validity of ecchi as a genre. Genres should be included based on what reliable sources call it.-- 21:30, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

pick one: http://myanimelist.net/anime/3455/To_LOVE-Ru http://www.animeseason.com/to-love-ru/ http://www.mangareader.net/140/to-love-ru.html http://anilinkz.com/series/to-love-ru ... I inserted this genre not because I get payed for doing it, but because when I first tried to figure out what this anime was all about without looking at it, the genres listed here back then gave me the wrong impression. And I am certain that others in the future will get the wrong impression too unless ecchi is listed. If it is inappropriate as a genre, then we could add it as theme or keyword, but that would unnecesseraly complicate it. I will certainly not visit this page in the future this often, so if you re-edit I will not notice, nor care, I was just trying to contribute.

I don't think any of those would be considered reliable sources, especially not myanimelist or mangareader. Anyone can write anything they wish, but if it's not from a reliable source, it's just original research.-- 09:11, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

More fuel[edit]

Just drop that 5 millions of manga volumes sold.
To be more precise the news say 500 (ten-thousands) and yes google translation will display 500 millions which is absurd ;) --KrebMarkt 15:04, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
