List of Japan-exclusive video games[edit]

List of Japan-exclusive video games (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD · Stats)
(Find sources: "List of Japan-exclusive video games" – news · newspapers · books · scholar · HighBeam · JSTOR · free images · free news sources · The Wikipedia Library · NYT · WP reference)

First off, the title of this article is misleading, since the list criteria which have been in the article since its creation in January 2006 have little to do with which countries the games have been released in. Per those criteria, the title should be "List of Japanese language video games with at least one version that has no official English language release". In other words:

  • Games which are Japan-exclusive but are in English (yes, there are a considerable number of such games) do not qualify for this list
  • Games which have been released in many countries but not in English do qualify for the list
  • Games which have been released in English but had one version which was not in English (e.g. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Dark Seed II, Grandia) do qualify for the list

Obviously the discrepancy between the title and the criteria can easily be fixed, either by changing the criteria or moving the article. However, whether you go by the title or the stated criteria, the list is far too broad in scope to ever come close to being comprehensive. This issue was brought up in the original AfD, which was closed as no consensus, and was not addressed by any of those who voted keep. All five of the "keep" votes provided no justification beyond vague assertions that the article can be improved, which just leads to the question: How can it possibly be improved? The inclusion criteria are too arbitrary and ill-defined to have been discussed in notable sources, so there's no reason to think that this article could one day have something more than original research.

  • Comment - For what its worth, if this happens to be kept again, the article isn't very actively maintained, so you could probably alter the inclusion criteria without much resistance. (And if there was resistance, you could contact the very active WP:VG for assistance on consensus building.) I just thought I'd throw that out there, considering how many of your qualms seem to be focused around the article's current inclusion criteria. The article could possibly be reshaped into something that makes a bit more sense. (Not that I'm defending the article, I'm currently undecided.) Sergecross73 msg me 16:01, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete Per nom. I agree that the subject of the list is far, far too broad in scope to ever be comprehensive. A quick look at the number of entries in Category:Japan-exclusive video games shows just how many games this list would need to contain to be comprehensive. The existence of this category also makes this list somewhat unnecessary as a navigation tool, as the category can be used for the same purpose. There is also the issue that, as this list contain zero reliable source, the entire lead in and the arbitrary labeling of some of the games on the list as "import classics" is complete OR. While this list could be potentially completely reworked, have some reliable sources brought it to support its information, and have its inclusion criteria redefined into something that makes sense, that would essentially mean rebuilding the entire list from the ground up. And considering what poor shape this list has been in for years, if that was something that was desirable, it would be far easier to delete this one, and create an entirely new article in its place, rather than keep this mess around with the hope that somebody will fix it someday. 64.183.45.226 (talk) 17:15, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Obvious promotion of the subject.

Although still biased, maybe the article could be restored up to this edition. In the next revision, the content was substituted with the current spam by a cross-wiki single-purpose account, Katsumi Mamine (originally, Fundación SEITAI Barcelona, globally renamed after I had told the user that name wasn't acceptable - see es:User talk:Katsumi Mamine).

  • Delete: Obviously this is pseudoscience, coupled with linguistic confusion. (Why are JAPANESE words in capitals?) It could be described from outside, if a rational is found, but even the earlier revision is frankly awful.

  • Delete, do not merge. The nominator's assessment is correct. In addition, the guidance at the porn project discourages porn filmographies and suggests providing a link to where the they can be found. At most, a brief and partial list of notable films and career highlights may be included. There are no reliable reliable sources to distinguish these porn films and a full porn filmography would carry undue weight in the actress' article. • Gene93k (talk) 15:28, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

dePRODed by creator without addressing the issue(s). Concern was: Does not say enough to indicate what is notable or characteristic about the song. No references. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 16:17, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

Ethanbas maybe you as creator could do that yourself rather than ordering us to do it for you. The volunteers are not here to complete your lazy creations and unsourced stubs. Especially as you are paid for a lot of what you do here. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 00:48, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
I'm not paid for this article, or any of the work I've done in the past few months. And I'm not ordering anyone to work on the article. And it's not a lazy creation, and it's not an unsourced stub. Ethanbas (talk) 01:23, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep. The Japanese article (per Google Translate) suggests this is very popular in Japan. I can't do anything with the Japanese sources but have added two English language sources that I dug out. Mortee (talk) 20:57, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
    • 'Popular' is not automatically notable. A raft of other language sources may be as unsuitable as the regular barrel-scraping for fleeting mentions we get her on en.Wiki. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 00:48, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
      • That's true, and I can't evaluate the value of the sources directly, but between them and the English-language mentions I've seen, I'm convinced this is a worthwhile topic Mortee (talk) 02:10, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
    • (edit conflict) This isn't the Japanese Wikipedia and having an article in another language Wikipedia is not a criterion for inclusion in the English Wikipedia. The first source added, Cultural History Of Postwar Japan, is a brief mention (one sentence) in a 186 page book. The second source is a self-published website, http://dragonflyandjapaneseculture.weebly.com/, not a reliable source. The article still fails GNG: it needs significant coverage in multiple, independent, secondary, reliable sources. --RexxS (talk) 00:58, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
      • Coverage in multiple, independent, secondary, reliable sources exists in Japanese. Ethanbas (talk) 01:23, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
      • I didn't mean to say that having an article on another language Wikipedia warranted inclusion - that way nothing covered in two languages would ever be deleted. I meant that article seemed detailed and to have several references, which suggested our own article could be improved. That fits with WP:BEFORE B6 Mortee (talk) 02:10, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
      • I should add two things: 1) I didn't say that the sources I'd added so far established notability in themselves; I think they together with the quality of the Japanese article do that. 2) The first reference you mentioned isn't one sentence. It's two sentences, including the claim that it's a "popular children's song", followed by some of the music (in musical notation) followed by credits for the lyrics and tune. Not exactly a dedicated thesis but not quite as trivial as your summary might suggest. Mortee (talk) 02:34, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
      • Actually a third thing, with apologies for the spam. I said 'two sources' because that's what I'd added when I added the comment, but the second wasn't the Weebly site, it was a book about Chinese film. That's also a brief mention where the song is not the main theme, granted. I just wanted to make this clear. Mortee (talk) 02:39, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

WP:NOTPLOT does not apply here since the article is supporting Chimpui which would need notability to stay around. MOS:TVPLOT would apply though. And adding more than saying it's a list of episodes would help give it context and notability. Was it broken into seasons or was it just one long season? How was it determined how long it would run? At some point it was allowed to continue on and on, past the usual 12-13 or 24-26 episodes of a "season" especially with 114 episodes. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 05:37, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep - Concise plot summaries of episodes are one part of what makes up good encyclopedic coverage of a television series. The brief plot summaries currently included in the list seem like appropriate content that we would want to retain. WP:NOTPLOT is an explanation of why the article is currently of poor quality and of how it needs to be improved (i.e., it needs more non-plot content added), but it is a reason to expand the article, and not a reason to delete it.

  • Delete per WP:NOTPLOT. In response to Shinnosukeandme (who is also the article creator) stating "There are plenty of episode lists with only the titles and a summary, why is this one different?", WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS applies. Ajf773 (talk) 05:19, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
WP:NOTPLOT does not apply here since the article is supporting Chimpui which would need notability to stay around. MOS:TVPLOT would apply though. And adding more than saying it's a list of episodes would help give it context and notability. Was it broken into seasons or was it just one long season? How was it determined how long it would run? At some point it was allowed to continue on and on, past the usual 12-13 or 24-26 episodes of a "season" especially with 114 episodes. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 05:37, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep - Concise plot summaries of episodes are one part of what makes up good encyclopedic coverage of a television series. The brief plot summaries currently included in the list seem like appropriate content that we would want to retain. WP:NOTPLOT is an explanation of why the article is currently of poor quality and of how it needs to be improved (i.e., it needs more non-plot content added), but it is a reason to expand the article, and not a reason to delete it.

Nominating this manga's article for deletion is somewhat disappointing considering I read it (or at least I used to). But the manga lacks significant coverage in reliable sources in either English or Japanese; a search for English sources resulted mostly in the usual illegal scanlation sites, while a search for Japanese sources failed to find any significant coverage either. I couldn't even find sales figures for the manga. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 22:55, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Yeah one aspect of google is that results are tailored towards your location, though searching on google.fr, Planet BD only shows up on the third page of results so the sites don't have great search rankings anyway. I might recommend instead using Gwern's custom google search made for the wikiproject, where Manga News is the third result, but Planete BD isn't there. The way I found these was by searching each site in the French list of the WikIProject page using the site: feature of google. So most important of all was knowing that it was licensed, which I learned from the frwiki article. Opencooper (talk) 03:05, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment I don't see any news articles over at ANN for this subject or the usual critics. Can you confirm whether Natalie, Planete BD and Manga News actually critique the show and not just preview/announce it. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 16:51, 12 February 2017 (UTC)
Natalie just has announcements about the manga (it's more of a news site than original reviews). But yes I can confirm that the other two sources have reviews: The Manga News reviews are from the MN team (with multiple reviews per volume), and the Planete BD reviews are split into two parts, "L'histoire" (the story) and "Ce qu'on en pense sur la planète BD" (what we think at Planet BD) While I cannot speak French, putting the pages through Google translate does seem to confirm that these are reviews and not just plot summaries. For whatever reason ANN has not picked up the series: most likely because it hasn't charted and because they are limited to translating news about the most popular/NA-licensed manga due to resource constraints.

This article is about an upcoming film, so the relevant notability guideline is WP:NFF. I cannot find very many reliable sources that definitively confirm the existence of this upcoming film, let alone whether it is clearly out of the pre-production process as NFF requires for animated films. Here may be one that says "it's coming" but nothing more. Some of the content that was in the article appeared to have been unverifiable speculation (violation of WP:CRYSTAL), such as this cast list that included Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. The production company and distributors that are listed in the article (Sony Pictures Animation and Columbia Pictures) are also inconsistent with past films in this franchise (where OLM, Inc. was the production company and Toho the distributor -- see Yo-kai Watch: The Movie), and I was unable to find any verification that American production companies are being involved. It is most likely too soon for a standalone article at this time. Mz7 (talk) 00:48, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Delete and redirect to Yo-kai Watch: The Movie. I could not find anything whatsoever about an American-made Yo-Kai Watch film (and given how the franchise didn't exactly do well in the West, I doubt one will be made anytime soon). I have a suspicion that the article in its current form is a complete hoax: the Yo-Kai Watch film referred to in Mz7's link is for a completely unrelated Japanese YW film. If Genndy Tartakovsky really was involved in the making of such a film, given his reputation in the Western animation industry, that should surely raise eyebrows and have coverage, but no. The article is close to being a G3 hoax: it's probably not blatant enought to be eligible for G3 (remember that legimitate films in the franchise do exist), but it sure is close to one. If the article is deleted, I suggest that the title be recreated as a redirect to the article on the legitimate YW film (Yo-kai Watch: The Movie) as a possible search term. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 13:19, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
  • It's definitely a hoax. Tartakovsky might not necessarily be one of those guys that gets news whenever he farts, but he most certainly would get coverage if he were to direct a film for a major anime series. Also, Justin Bieber is one of those people who gets coverage for his bodily functions and there's no way that he'd be attached to this film and not have it mentioned somewhere. There are just too many big names attached to this, including big companies, for there to be zero coverage. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 15:36, 6 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Weak develop, maybe This con seems to get regular coverage by Phoenix New Times, which is good, but not nationally, other than that it gets mentioned by ANN that it is happening. It doesn't appear that ANN is sending any reporters there to summarize events. It's only after having to dig around that it has recently (like 2016 and 2017) attracted some of the big seiyuus from Japan such as Yuu Asakawa, Kappei Yamaguchi, Yuko Sanpei and Akemi Kanda; attendance is about 1500 increasing to 3200.

In reply to SephyTheThird: please consider that we did not have a clue what deprodding means (until it's pointed out to us). There's a world of protocols in wiki editing that we're only getting to know. We thought we were supposed to remove the section to indicate that the article has been updated with more information. And yes, we'll rather freely admit to being the developer rather than hide behind some random username. As for the marketing component, no, we agree Wikipedia is not a marketing provider. But as been said, we are still understanding what constitute 'marketing' and what is 'information' in the eyes of the wiki admins and gatekeepers. The current content is there mainly in reply to edits that seems to refer to us as vaporware.
