Sora[edit]

Sorry if I made you think I was angry or something, it probably sounded like that since I crammed so many clauses into the comment space. So what is the difference between this and assuming that the silhouette in Liminality is AI-Sora? That has never been stated officially, and although it appears to be extremely likely, for all we know it's Skeith making a fashion statement or a Wryneck Data Bug or something. Skeith appears in the games before this scene perfectly Sora-less. - Onmyounomichi 06:05, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

List of Burst Angel episodes[edit]

You don't like the list of episodes page? I'm a part of WikiProject List of Television Episodes and we're trying to create lists of episodes for all TV shows. There's also an anime project who got List of Planetes episodes to be a featured list. - Peregrinefisher 04:36, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Disambig titles[edit]

You might want to read WP:D and WP:TV-NC. Disambiguation in article titles are only used as necessary, and are not made for title consistency. -- Ned Scott 07:14, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Redirects after page moves[edit]

I see you've left notes for a couple people about fixing links after page moves. That really is not necessary and is rarely done. What people do need to fix are double redirects that result from page moves. If you move page A to page B, any redirect to A then becomes a double redirect. Those would have to be changed to redirect to B. But any links to A will still be fine.

That sounded confusing even as I typed it. Links to redirects are fine ---- Redirects to redirects are bad. Let me know if you have questions.  :) —Wknight94 (talk) 22:46, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Your edit to .hack//AI buster[edit]

Workin list SCT[edit]

Hi there! While sorting stubs I found this page, linked to your page, so I assume you're working on it. Right now it's obviously a draft -- until it's ready for the main space, I moved it to User:Kazu-kun/Workin list SCT. Cheers, Her Pegship (tis herself) 04:42, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

.hack//Sign[edit]

I was just starting to read over the .hack//Sign article for its GA candidacy, but it looks like someone has beaten me to it. My only real comment thus far was that I think it would be worth having someone give it a thorough copy edit. I'm no expert copy editor, but some of the more obvious stuff in the lead I tried playing with. Also, it might be worth expanding abbreviations like MMORPG for people who are unfamiliar with the terms, especially in the lead so they have some context to place the rest of the description in without having to click away at a wikilink. Other than those minor things, let me say well done! I've never seen the show, but followed the article without any major problems. Hopefully you submit it to FAC at some point. Cheers, darkliight[πalk] 13:49, 13 April 2007 (UTC)


Hey, Kazu-kun, I realize you must have enormous fun tinkering with the .hack//SIGN article every once in a while but the question remains on whether you are gonna submit it to FAC at some point or not? --Koveras  11:57, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

You are right. I was talking aout the other user. They removed my content, as well as trying to tell me it doesnt belong. I do not understand why though. They are relevant facts to the OS. The person is doing a bad job explaining why they delete the info. DarkAkira 05:53, 17 April 2007 (UTC)


Ok. I will add the information when I ge out of work today. Only thing is a would need you to help by formating the info. I suck at formating wiki. I'm getting better, but I don't do it much. I'll let you know when the info is ready.

Unproper rollback[edit]

Just wondering why you rolled back my edit on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Anime_and_manga by replacing the redundant ANN links and removing the extra review site, "fixed references" sure does not sound like what you did.

This all seams to be just ANN propaganda to me, I don't see the need for two links for the same site since ANN is quite complete, would be the same as creating one link for each sub-section of ANN (which would come out huge), thus the redundant links as follows can be merged for better understanding and compact information:

Anime News Network - Anime news site with an extensive anime encyclopedia. ANN Reviews - Nearly 1,000 anime and manga reviews from Anime News Network.

into:

Anime News Network - Anime news site with an extensive anime and manga encyclopedia and nearly 1,000 reviews.

And about the other review site, it covers a slight different POV on the subject while maintaining more than 350 reviews and dozens of essays, plus fandom material, so there was also no point in removing it.

Thoughts?

edit on answer

I see about the links, it still seams a little bias towards promoting ANN by selecting the same site for two areas, there are other sites with similar review content size, for instance animetric.com or even daisuki.com.br

About daisuki, there is no copyright violation except if you mean the scans gallery, which is also from internet published works. The wallpapers and animated GIFs are all work of members and properly credit, no rippers or uncredit work is acceped the same way it's not accepted in most big wallpaper sites nowadays. I would also like to point out that ALL material are withing Fair Use and therefore one cannot blaim the site for breaking copyright values in any way

as soon as we settle this I think one should take the oportunity to at least remove the ANN redundancy and add another site as a review source. If you are not satisfied with daisuki, one can add animetric.com. However, copyright is not an issue.

Thank you for removing the notability tag. Before I got there it was horribly written, it's still pretty bad, though. Any help is welcome! :) Chris 09:36, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Lain[edit]

As you saw, I was trying to flesh out the Lain article but obviously I was putting too much detail in; how much exactly can be put in? At the moment it seems fairly detailed (e.g. talking about Lain seeing an older Alice implying she hasn't aged and that there's something amazing about Lain) but the choice of details seems totally random. Would it be better to just purge the plot description to be very vague and spoiler-free? The Fish 22:29, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Alright, thanks for the info! The Fish 16:00, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Re: Yuri (term)[edit]

Quick question. What did you mean when you made this edit? If it wasn't for the reason I suspected, then what other reason could it have been. Also, when I found the article not too long ago, some of the headings had "non-hentai" in them. Were you (or others) intendeding to make another section which included hentai yuri series, or were you (or others) just not including the hentai series because they were hentai?-- 06:34, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Sailor Moon[edit]

I disagree with your edits to what I did in the Sailor Moon article. Action, Comedy, and Science Fiction are specific genres emphasized and shown in Sailor Moon. (Examples: Science Fiction - Aliens from an alternate dimension, Action - battle sequences, Comedy - It's pretty much abundant here) So I'm gonna change it back.

Re: Blue Drop[edit]

I got the dates from MediaWork's website regarding old issues of Dengeki Comic Gao. When I looked through all the issues in 2005, I only found 3 that contained Blue Drop: September 2005, December 2005, and February 2006. The September issue specifically says it starts in that issue, and the February issue says it ended in that one, so it's not simply the case of the website not including it for other issues. Additionally, every time it was serialized, it was given a different subtitle, and since there were only three, I assumed there to be three stories. I guess they serialized one by itself, and then two for the subsequent serials.-- 08:26, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Wow, that changes everything. I'll have to expand on this in the manga section; turns out the first chapter was released in the February 2005 issue.-- 09:02, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

thanks[edit]

Hello, thanks for fixing that anime infobox footer template. I had been trying to figure out what was wrong with Whisper of the Heart (see the history) and my first thought was that one of the templates might have been tampered with. I eventually found the real problem and fixed it. Thanks again. P.S. You must be a fan of s-CRY-ed. --Kyoko 22:14, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Dropping a note[edit]

Just thought I'd commend you on the concentration and depth of your edits. You really put forth effort into something when you set your mind on it. In any case, I thought it prudent to inform you, given your numerous edits to the article in question, that as soon as the thirteenth episode of Blue Drop: Tenshitachi no Gikyoku airs next week, and the summary is added, I'll nominate List of Blue Drop: Tenshitachi no Gikyoku episodes for featured list status. Regards, Sephiroth BCR (Converse) 06:52, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Re: Category:Shōjo-ai[edit]

It seems you have taken the right step to take it to WP:CFD since I would have done the same thing. Just revert all the articles that the user placed the cat on on the basis of redundany with Category:Yuri.-- 00:12, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

There, it's all done; I've reverted all of the 150+ articles that had the categories.-- 00:58, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Re: Demographic in Shigofumi[edit]

While it may be true that the light novels did come first, the anime is still the original work, so I think the focus of the article should be the anime. Case in point, Little Busters!, which had a manga series and a series of short stories released a year and a half before the game was released, but the article is still primarily about the game since it's the original work that the other media spawned from. Same thing in Shigofumi which should still primarily be about the anime despite the novels being released first.-- 20:23, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Comic Yuri Hime‎[edit]

Hi, Kazu-kun. I thought the article would be useful somewhere for sourcing on a subject that is probably difficult to source... but I wasn't sure exactly where it should go. Since neither manga nor yuri are in my usual editing areas, I leave its placement up to you. (I hope it is useful somewhere though.) Cheers! Dekkappai (talk) 20:59, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Understood[edit]

After reading this, I realized that the remaining images do appear to serve a purpose. Guess I should have taken a better look, sorry about that. So what's up? I was expecting a reply here and at the last query above that section. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 05:41, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! You have no idea how much this means to me. Regards, Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 05:58, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
Can you make clear that the introduction by year categories are correctly placed in those articles you nailed, respectively? See the ones at the bottom of Lupin III (manga) and Lupin III (anime) as examples. If the article is about the anime and manga, then the year categories should be something like the ones in Cutie Honey or Rurouni Kenshin (careful, some of these may be parent cats of each other and should be looked at). Does this make sense? Also, if you happen to see a page that refers only to the franchise, then the category should be like the one at Hellsing. Lord Sesshomaru (talkedits) 18:40, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Can you shed some light on this issue: Is "Yuri" a genre?.--Nohansen (talk) 03:45, 1 April 2008 (UTC)


For Yuri demographics?[edit]

Valenti, Kristy L. "Stop, My Butt Hurts!" - The Yaoi Invasion The Comics Journal issue 269, 2005 says that female-created yuri isn't as popular amongst females as yaoi is, because of male-targetted yuri-as-fanservice. Either that male-targetted yuri puts them off, or they can't find the female-created stuff out there.-Malkinann (talk) 09:51, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Well, that's a point isn't it? That if we can find a source saying that Marimite has led the charge back to seeing shoujo and josei yuri as being refound daughters of Esu, then we can say "Up until Marimite, yuri was seen like this, but post-Marimite, yuri has become more like this". Although I've noticed that you've only got a source saying (roughly) that Marimite is wildly, bizarrely, popular amongst males. As a side note, I've found an article comparing Marimite to Azumanga Daioh, and I've put in a request for it with User:Nihonjoe. Friedman says that in the interviews she's gotten, the assumption is becoming that yuri is by-women-for-women, (as can be seen most tellingly in the introduction to the Hinamatsuri interview). She also notes that paradoxically, while the first yuri magazine was for females, it went bust (I think she says its successor is going badly too??) and that male-oriented moe yuri is becoming more and more popular (as in the 'sister magazine' which is male-oriented). So it's difficult to tell. Welker in his book chapter (2001/2002ish) also says that 70s female mangaka who created shoujo suffered from "lesbian panic" (so, they wouldn't show yuri, or else they would give them BAD END), for fear that their work would be too confronting for their readers, who would suffer their own "lesbian panic" and not buy the mag (and thus the series becomes uneconomic for the mangaka). Valenti's article is primarily about yaoi, and only briefly glosses over yuri, so that could be where the flaws lie. I'm really looking forward to whatever else you can rustle up about yuri, btw. :) -Malkinann (talk) 06:50, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
The "Hinamatsuri" interview was the About.com interview - it was released on Hinamatsuri (cos what's better to talk about on Girls' Day than girls who like girls? ;) ). I'm sure she's mentioned it before, but I can't find it for the life of me! As for the rise of moe, I think Friedman mentioned it in one of her reviews of Comic Yuri Hime S. The quote by the editor is really interesting and I hope it makes it into the next draft.  :) I suspect it could be due to issues of disposable income???-Malkinann (talk) 08:50, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

I just found this out, but Yaoi-Con's membership is 85% females, whereas Yuricon's is about 50/50 (About.com interview) - could this be an important comparison point for the demographics section? -Malkinann (talk) 06:08, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

A Comics Reader's Guide to Manga Scanlations by Dirk Deppey 13 October 2006 The Comics Journal states that "A fair amount of attention has been paid lately to the emergence of the boy-love genre, shounen-ai, and its more explicit cousin, yaoi. Slipping in under the radar, however has been the slow growth in interest over their all-girl equivalents, shoujo-ai and yuri. ... Like the all-boy version, shoujo-ai and yuri are primarily girl-driven genres with heterosexual females a significant portion of the readership." Interesting, even if it'd be a bit iffy linking to it straight up. -Malkinann (talk) 12:50, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

[http://ro.uow.edu.au/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1152&context=artspapers The World of Yaoi: The Internet, Censorship and the Global “Boys’ Love” Fandom] describes the global yuri fandom as being "much smaller" than the global yaoi fandom (2005) and Roundtable: The Internet and Women’s Transnational “Boys’ Love” Fandom says "Recently, yuri, or “girls’ love” has also emerged as a dynamic and rapidly growing fandom." -Malkinann (talk) 03:57, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Hey, could you help me out? I'm pretty certain that that hacker guy in Lain is using HotSauce... are we simply not allowed to say that until someone else decides to write it up? I found another source: IMDB trivia on Lain... Also, could we somehow emphasise the connection of the Knights to lambda calculus? I think it's worth saying, and you've already verified that they're a reference to the knights of the lambda calculus, so it's a small step but one that will show how awesome SEL is, maybe... =]

FAR for Serial Experiments Lain[edit]

I have nominated Serial Experiments Lain for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks.

The instructions for the review process are here.

Romanization for words of English origin[edit]

On the MOS:JP talk page, a discussion has been started about including or not including romanizations for words of English origin, such as Fainaru Fantajī in Final Fantasy (ファイナルファンタジー, Fainaru Fantajī) (for the sake of simplicity, I called this case "words of English origin", more information on semantics here).

Over the course of a month, it has become apparent that both the parties proposing to include or not include those romanizations cannot be convinced by the arguments or guidelines brought up by the other side. Therefore, a compromise is trying to be found that will satisfy both parties. One suggestion on a compromise has been given already, but it has not found unanimous agreement, so additional compromises are encouraged to be suggested.

One universally accepted point was to bring more users from the affected projects in to help achieve consensus, and you were one of those selected in the process.

What this invitation is:

  • You should give feedback on the first suggested compromise and are highly encouraged to provide other solutions.

What this invitation is not:

  • This is not a vote on including or excluding such romanizations.
  • This is not a vote on compromises either.

It would be highly appreciated if you came over to the MOS:JP talk page and helped find a solution. Thank you in advance. Prime Blue (talk) 11:30, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

The Team names were snubbed for a reason[edit]

They added more terminology and in-universe terms to the summaries which were for the general readers. The teams themselves are not notable since they were only an exhibition match, lasted one episode, and are not recurring characters. From your summaries, you made it sound as if I personally put in false information. All I did was snub team names. I can infer what you mean by false information, where the sentence "they played against Germany" made you assume I meant nationally. I did not expect it to cause a misconception. Assume good faith next time. DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 04:15, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Saikin, Imōto no Yōsu ga Chotto Okaishiin Da Ga., you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Romance (genre) (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Noragami[edit]

Hi, instead of arguing with you and constantly going back and forth with edits, I was hoping I could talk to you about the changes you made to the Noragami page. I'm not afraid to beg, and so I'm begging you: Can we please keep the extra information in the character sections? That information isn't harming you in any way is it? It's only serving to benefit others who are unable to read the manga as it fills them in on what's going on in the plot. Have some sympathy for them. The descriptions present at the moment are far too brief. If you look at any other anime you'll see large character descriptions, because for every anime/manga people add to the character descriptions as the story goes on. And in response to your claim that this is intended for the "general public", the only "general public" that will be viewing the Noragami page are manga/anime fans. I assure you that people with lives won't care about this stuff. So please consider my request and agree to having the extra information present. If you don't respond to this I'm going to assume that you're in agreement. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.30.20.181 (talk) 23:53, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
