BarnSakura for Excellent Work[edit]

BarnSakura.png The Manga and Anime BarnSakura Award
I hereby award you the Anime and Manga BarnSakura for your awesome work in helping Azumanga Daioh retain its Good Article status! Great work overall and a great example of true cooperative editing in action :-) -- Collectonian (talk · contribs) 01:11, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks :) I guess that other Quasi Random got the same accolade ;) I suck at editing as i'm not a native English writer and French educative system hammer you to write good simple & short English sentences. --KrebMarkt 06:34, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Ironing jobs[edit]

Okay, just list them out in one place so I know what we've done and what's left to do:

Have I missed anything? Given everything above it, you can take your own sweet time going about that last one (assuming you're willing). —Quasirandom (talk) 19:43, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Crazy road map ;)
  • Aria (manga), i will probably do more translation works as there still reviews to be translated target is to push it GA, episodes list FL and chapters FL. Soundtracks well kicking it to B is already very unexpected to go further it would someone fluent in Japanese to track down additional material like interviews and podcasts.
  • Undercurrent (manga), potential DYK and class B. All we miss is the development part but some article can live with it like Azumanga. I will then translate it back to French wiki where it doesn't exist yet.
  • Natsume's Book of Friends, i still need to track down those Drama CD refs or else it will never get B regardless effort in every others part of the article.
  • Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru, i want to thanks you for that one as i'm dragging you on something that should not be your concern. The plan simple after-copy edit done we drop the plate to Collectionian and run as far as we can.
  • Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl, After copy-editing the stuff, the hardest will be to convince Juhachi that adding some elements of those reviews won't hurt the article. I guess you read my tired rant on this article discussion page?
    • Did I ever say the reviews would "hurt" the article? I never thought that; quite the contrary, any reliable review will be good, but how much is added in to a single review is the concern I was addressing. In the end, I'm usually too lazy to add in additional reviews after an article's reception section has reached a large enough size. There is no "convincing" that needs to be done here; I hold no preconceptions of article ownership.-- 19:34, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
      • Laughing a bit :) Na nothing against you or ownership issue but courtesy requires that we reach consensus on "we are not going to screw up a GA article by adding additional stuffs". Any lingering belief that it may unbalances the article is bound to bring troubles later. Plus i must also get used to collaborate with you so i may be overly cautious --KrebMarkt 19:47, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
        • Okay, now it's my turn to laugh inwardly. that's a word I have not seen on Wikipedia in a long time. It's been so long, I had to laugh at myself. But that's a good thing to keep in mind; more editors should follow that example.-- 01:50, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Bunny Drop, Translation duty + i must think my rational on why a regional cultural generalist website is RS to review a manga.
Yeah, I read the Kashimashi rant -- hadn't been up for replying myself. After working out what's useful, I'm likely to add whatever possible anyway. As for Aria, the entire Reception section needs revamping, to pull things I stuffed in the quote= fields into the main text -- I just haven't felt up to the job for a while. (I've got a pile of those in my sandbox.) —Quasirandom (talk) 20:37, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
I will give a shot myself the refs revamping for Aria articles that would free you more for what you are the best "Stylish & quality editing" ;)
For my rant, i do translations and people are free to use them or not as they please. I don't bear grudge that only made me more selective for which article i will translate French materials. You can't help people against themselves. --KrebMarkt 21:09, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Addendum: If you & Collectonian want to bring Fruit Basket up to FA, i will translate French coverage when it reaches GA. --KrebMarkt 21:24, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm working myself up to returning to Fruits Basket -- gotta get my strength meter higher. —Quasirandom (talk) 21:47, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Need more rest and more practice and more coffee and more cider to return to Fruit basket ;) --KrebMarkt 22:05, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
No no no, cider first then coffee. Gotta do these in the right order. :-P —Quasirandom (talk) 00:42, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Foreign relief efforts[edit]

BarnSakura.png The Manga and Anime BarnSakura Award
For your work in helping find foreign sources for various anime articles, including Lupin III which aided in its retain its Good Article status, Please Save My Earth, Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru, and Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl.

Unexpected yet very pleasant, Thanks ma'am :)

Otogi Matsuri[edit]

There are no English reviews for Otogi Matsuri: Dark Offering because it for indefinitely delayed but there are some reviews from 2 French websites: PlaneteBD and Manga Sanctuary. Would be a great help if you translate them. Thanks in advance. Extremepro (talk) 00:59, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Lol. I owe you a bunch of translations. I will do it just that i must stop procrastinating. Translation you know when you start it but not when you end it that like war. --KrebMarkt 06:59, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny[edit]

Compass barnstar.png The Guidance Barnstar
Thanks for giving all the sources on the Seed Destiny article. —Preceding signed comment added by MythSearchertalk 08:04, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Thankee. I'm not done yet with them ;) There are still items from the Kodakawa catalog, few that require someone who know a bit a Japanese to tell what it is. (very not subtle way to inform Mythsearcher that he may be called for contribution) --KrebMarkt 08:17, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Feel free to show them, if my poor Japanese can be of any help. If not, I guess the WP:Japan people can help as well. :P —Preceding signed comment added by MythSearchertalk 08:23, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm done with any thing that contain the words Gundam & Seed in the Kodokawa catalog feel free to give a look at some items which i'm still puzzled about. The craziness is that each refs will be eventually be used somewhere to prove existence of the said item. --KrebMarkt 09:49, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Worth merging?[edit]

Should we merge Azumanga Daioh Original Soundtrack, Volume 1 and Azumanga Daioh Original Soundtrack, Volume 2 to Azumanga Daioh#Soundtracks, with a collapsing tracklist? —Quasirandom (talk) 14:23, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Better merge into Azumanga Daioh Soundtracks and expand with the others released CDs. The current Azumanga Daioh#Soundtracks section is dense as plutonium with for each sentence the double in citation & reference. I find this section indigestible :(

:For UK release, for what i can remember the news of the English re-licensing started from an UK blog/website with a Yen press staff member interview or indiscretion. Commentators discussed afterward of a possible UK release prior a North America one.

Edit: Confused with Yotsuba&! Sorry. But still the probability is high. --KrebMarkt 15:07, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
I will probably add it to my awfully long to do list
Off-topic comment: A team is fansubing the Aria Drama CDs. That how extreme some fans can be ;) --KrebMarkt 15:02, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Subbing an audio track? Oy. —Quasirandom (talk) 16:30, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
A still image on the background (aria artwork) and subs for the audio track. Just fall on it today :)
Check hidden comment in that discussion & remove it afterward. Thanks
--KrebMarkt 16:37, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
List of Azumanga Daioh soundtracks? We really need to hammer out proper naming conventions for these things... =P ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:58, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
That was just a suggestion of name like Azumanga Daioh discography :p --KrebMarkt 19:08, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
How many different naming styles do we have examples of? List of Air soundtracks, Death Note original soundtracks, Discography of FLCL, List of Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! albums, List of Haruhi Suzumiya character song singles, List of Hayate the Combat Butler character song albums, Kimagure Orange Road CD List, List of Suzuka music, List of music from Di Gi Charat, My-HiME soundtracks, Robotech music, Rozen Maiden Drama CDs, Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase CD collections - it seems most of them are variations of "List of X [soundtracks/albums]", and a good part of the problem, I think, lies in the fact that the lists can cover one or several of multiple closely related media types. Actually, out of that whole list, I'm probably most partial to "Discography of X" - don't ask me why. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 19:27, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
This is madness, No this is Animanga :p
Need to reach a consensus on how to handle animanga music and not just the spin-out article name but set of guidelines on when to spin-out a list, when to spin-out a single or album apart and their contents. The one to raise the issue is most likely the one to be bestowed the honorable duty fix those article. So everyone are artistically side steeping with that issue. The are probably more soundtracks & soundtracks lists articles than list of episodes or list of chapter out there. --KrebMarkt 20:39, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, that's probably why no one wants to confront the issue. Poking through the category is on my to-do list, and one of these days, I think, I'm going to force the issue at WT:ANIME to finally get all this stuff worked out. ;P Other than that, I've been adding lists to the cat as I find/think of them; haven't bothered much with individual albums/soundtracks/CDs/whatever though. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 21:13, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Yikes, that's a lot of name patterns in use there. To be honest, I'm not sure which one(s) to use. Given that non-franchise lists (that is, the releases of a musical artist) tend to not be called a list, but rather a discography, I'm kinda inclined to follow their lead. But -- and but.
If you guys open a discussion in WT:ANIME, I'll do my best to contribute meaningfully. —Quasirandom (talk) 21:19, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
I have no definitive plans of starting such a discussion (as in, no set timeline), but it's something I'll ask about *eventually*, unless someone beats me to it. In the meantime, I've been busy elsewhere recently. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 21:42, 19 August 2009 (UTC)


I know that i will be eventually be drafted into an animanga soundtracks taskforce but fixing soundtracks is very time consuming. We are going to talk a lot to reach a guideline + MoS. People will scream Creep because we will have a specific MoS but we are not talking about an artist but a franchise and rarely byproducts can be that successful see K-ON#Reception. --KrebMarkt 22:01, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Some prospective because i feel like it tonight, too talkative but that the longest discussion thread i had in my talk page ever :p
Animanga has roughly 5 types of lists
  1. List of chapters & volumes
  2. List of anime episodes
  3. List of characters
  4. List of soundtracks (or whatever you call it)
  5. List of drama CDs
Out of the 5, we managed to make FL out of 3 of them. The fourth is class B at the highest and if you read my above comment doing a list of Drama CDs is no more an impossibility because people started to fansub them (extremely doubtful that publishers will license them) and i discussed with Dinoguy1000 a template variant to handle them. I excluded radio CDs because they are not notable as a list.
I hope someone someday will do a Big Five with one FL/FA in each category. --KrebMarkt 22:01, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
You are nothing if not ambitious. —Quasirandom (talk) 14:35, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Shaman Warrior[edit]

Hey KrebMarkt, if you're looking for a bit of a change of pace, would you mind looking into creating an article on the Shaman Warrior manhwa? There seem to be plenty of English reviews ([1][2][3], just from the first page of G-hits), and according to the back cover, it's one of the top five best-selling Korean epics of all time, and has apparently won the Korean Culture & Content Agency's 2006 "Best Manhwa of the Year" award (both highly suggestive that there's plenty more coverage in Korean). I also have a chapter list for it at User:Dinoguy1000/Redlink series chapter lists (though I still need to add the first four volumes, and I can't seem to find the series on Haksan's website). Thanks in advance! ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:06, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

*poke* ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 16:41, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Aïe Aïe Aïe Aïe Aïe ...
I will do it just i want to take my time. One opportunity to use your Awesome Korean manwha infobox template. --KrebMarkt 16:46, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Heh... You mean this? TBH, it's not really my work any more; J Greb (talk · contribs) maintains it now (as he has since it was merged from Template:Infobox manhwa and Template:Infobox manhua). ;) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:11, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Just spotted[edit]

I just saw on Dinoguys talk page that you mentioned the EVA soundtracks. I have a partial sandbox I started a while back, so I'm happy to help at some point in the future if you want some collaborative assistence. I know I'm more likely to finish it if I have help :p Dandy Sephy (talk) 20:55, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

When i will finish to verify (and not revamping) all the DBZ soundtrack stuff here, i will probably give you some help. I just hope i won't be drafted for the forgone anime soundtracks clean-up :( --KrebMarkt 13:59, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
Well you aren't making that easy by handling the DBZ monstrosity. I'm in no rush, as I'm focused on finishing Love Hina above anything else, and don't have a reliable net connection at home yet anyway. I'll keep it in mind and do some more work on it when I have chance Dandy Sephy (talk) 14:08, 17 September 2009 (UTC)
I don't think any of us are looking forward to an anime soundtracks cleanup drive. It's something that needs to be done, but we're all probably so scared of it that no one will step forward and just get the whole thing started. =P ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 16:40, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

Alone in My King's Harem[edit]

I've only been able to find another review by Ed Chavez for MangaCast, which doesn't seem to be online any more. It's of an age to be in Manga: The Complete Guide, but apparently that doesn't count much towards notability. But on the upside, her My Only King may be notable... --Malkinann (talk) 23:51, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Ah, righto. There's also this from the yaoi review LJ of Snow Wildsmith, a librarian who writes for the School Library Journal and Graphic Novel Reporter. Seem to remember asking how she fits into the scheme of things a while back, but got little response. --Malkinann (talk) 10:01, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Change 123 reference help[edit]

I'm trying to esablish notability for this article and after talking to User:Dinoguy1000 he said ur the guy I should go to. So can you help me establish this Change 123 article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cali boi16 (talkcontribs) 18:46, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

To be specific, the series isn't licensed in English, and some brief Googling didn't show much promise for English coverage, but it has been licensed in French. =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 18:53, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
On it --KrebMarkt 19:02, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Very cool, already got a decent number of reviews - I think the notability concerns are taken care of, then. =) ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 19:12, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, thanks KrebMarkt. You most likely saved this article from possible deletion. Now that notability has been established, I can move on to other concerns about the article. You saved me a lot of time. Cali boi16 (talk) 19:26, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
I see your point. Btw, I was wondering if you were going to continue on the Change 123 article by adding a reference section concerning your French reviews added to establish notability. Dinoguy1000 again recommended I ask you whether or not you are willing to take up the job. Cali boi16 (talk) 20:34, 30 September 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cali boi16 (talkcontribs)

Reply: I would like to however i have a BIG back log of stuff to translate or summarize from French. Right no i can't and i won't make a promise i'm not sure to keep. If it happen that i managed to translate some bits of Change 123 reviews, i will drop a line in your talk page but really no promise :( --KrebMarkt 17:49, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you. Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated. Cali boi16 (talk) 18:44, 1 October 2009 (UTC)

Gantz interview[edit]

Some months ago, I found an interview about with Hiroya Oku about the Gantz manga, but it was all in Japanese. Today, I found a French translation of such interview from the Gantz manual in this site. I barely understand the idea of the questions. Since you know French, could you try making a small translation of it? Well, it's kind of big, so take your time. Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 19:41, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

an IP user changed Liam's Name into Reim in Pandora Hearts and i havent seen anyone undo his edit. IS it the official English name?Bread Ninja (talk) 15:20, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

You know i live in France and the news here is that the best possible French publisher picked up this series and will start it in July 2010 :p
More on the subject, i have yet to learn the official naming for Reim-Liam so i let it run loose. However after checking the localization of the Ip who made the edit (Sweden), i'm pondering now if reverting it would be better. Na... You should revert it and asked for reference. --KrebMarkt 18:44, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh really? you live in France, i know a bit of french i visit my family there every so often. well anyways I'll go ahead and revert it then.Bread Ninja (talk) 18:46, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Matt Thorn interview[edit]

Thanks for the interview, it was very good to read, even if I don't know exactly how to use it. It's 'olds' (at least to me) that Matt Thorn cried while reading Heart of Thomas. I wept when I was reading his description of the plot. --Malkinann (talk) 00:27, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Oops. Didn't pay attention to that.Tintor2 (talk) 22:48, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Episode Number[edit]

Thanks. I didn't know that. For long running series I can see that happening since you don't really know how many are going to be set in the first place (i.e Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, they go on forever...). Most of the articles I have worked on which have a "definite" set of episodes for the season, the number of those planned were set in the infobox since there isn't any reason to keep adding +1 to the number every week the studio already is telling you 'x' amount will be aired ^^; Changes would be made if something drastic like the anime suddenly got cut. Additional episodes revealed on DVD would also change the number, which happens every now and then. Thanks for the info though. Fox816 (talk)


By the way, did you see the merger tags I placed on the article and list pages? I would like some feedback so depending on the decision we can leave it be or I can go ahead and REDIRECT and transfer all the info to the main article. Personally, I think a separate list isn't necessary. We can fit everything into the main as some other established articles have done so given their number of episodes. Fox816 (talk) 23:09, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

Orchestra credits and more[edit]

Sorry if I'm being a bother, but do you think we should use orchestra credits at all in the list of nge albums (not just in that list but in other lists as well? i mean i tihnk of it as any other movie credits or game credits. what do you think?Bread Ninja (talk) 22:25, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Took my time to make an answer. I think that what you are writing is an hybrid article between WP:ALBUM and WP:DISCOG, you can't manage every aspects of both so you have to make cuts somewhere. Now what's highly debatable is where you draw the line.
Personally, i'm in this case for a strict interpretation of Verifiability policy. Meaning not asserted with a Reliable Source not in the article. However i can live with the article full of unsourced stuffs because my responsibility doesn't go this far.
Bottom line do what you want but don't expect me to be happy or coming to rescue if you start put a lot of unsourced stuffs which could be removed on sight because those unsourced facts are most likely related to BLPs. --KrebMarkt 14:45, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
I will remove the credits, I'll put them in the paragraph, "performed my the london studio orchestra" or something similar to that. --Necrojesta (talk) 16:45, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Re: List of Fullmetal Alchemist chapters[edit]

I knew ISBN-13 format is acceptable, it just seems silly to me to use the one that isn't used on the publisher's website. Every other article I've encountered has had the so-called "official" ISBN from the publisher's site (and Viz only lists the ISBN-10 and not the ISBN-13). Just my two cents though. :] Kelakagandy (talk) 22:51, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

translation check, please?[edit]

Hey, thanks for keeping your cool with Tim. I've recently been working on translating fr:Nausicaä (personnage) to the equivalent page Nausicaä (character). (at some point, they translated the English edition into French, too, lol). I've only really gotten up to the profil section on the French page, but it would be a huge confidence boost if you could please read the French page, then read the English page, and see if I've made any big mistakes? This is what the English page looked like before I started translating, if that helps. --Malkinann (talk) 20:25, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks - I was a bit afraid that I'd filled the article with errors, and I'm glad that you think the translation is okay. :) I'm also trying to keep to the MOS-AM, which I always find confusing. Is assorted a better word? I had thought the general sense was that proto-Nausicaa had a father who was sick. Is it in the sense of 'saddled with the burden of a sick father', or 'her father travels with her'? --Malkinann (talk) 21:51, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
Righto, like a foil? --Malkinann (talk) 22:14, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

French review check[edit]

ANN's encyclopedia is listing that Shina Dark has a French publication by Taifu Comics. Could you check it out and see if there are any reviews? I am particularly interested if any of those reviews mention that it is an "ecchi" manga. —Farix (t | c) 18:08, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Maiden Rose[edit]

If being adapted into an OVA isn't enough to pass WP:BK#3, then it should go to AFD again. After all, that's what DRV is for. --Malkinann (talk) 21:37, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Category:Highschool of the Dead[edit]

If you disagree with my creation of the above category, you should take it to WP:CFD, not remove it from articles. Personally, I believe it aids in navigation, and that four pages (main, charlist, chaplist, eplist) is sufficient for a category, but you are of course welcome to nominate it for deletion anyway. --erachima talk 07:05, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

"Production" is an ill-defined category, and I agree that not everything I've organized into that section should remain there as the article is improved. However, I believe that we cannot allow the thought of eventual perfection to get in the way of present acceptability, and that it is important that pages be presented in readable form even early in their development.
In other words, I am opposed to excessively sectioning the article at this point as it makes it difficult to read, and agree that once we have more content it should be split up more accurately. --erachima talk 07:36, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
I'd also like to note that I find your suggestion that we "agree to disagree" somewhat disconcerting, because we haven't even attempted listening to each other's opinions yet. You effectively telling me I can do whatever I want is, of course, an attractive option, but I'd much rather hear what you think and see if any of it is sensible. --erachima talk 07:59, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

ARIA mangaka[edit]

According to MAG Comic Blade June 2010 edition, Kozue Amano is ill and her current scuba girl manga Amanchu! is on hiatus until September. Have you heard anything more? I'm a bit worried. Thanks! (talk) 20:25, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Well i don't read Japanese so i won't get you a clear answer here
  • No news about it from amano centric scans
  • No news about it from my animelist or animesuki
  • No news about it if you search 天野こずえ in Google news
  • Vol. 3 is scheduled for August 10, 2010
  • Comic Blade issue #7 2010 Amanchu on cover but no Amanchu new chapter if you check the table of content for あまんちゅ!
  • Comic Blade issue #8 2010 No Amanchu new chapter

Amanchu is de-facto on hiatus why and for how long i can't answer based on the facts managed to collect as someone who don't read Japanese. --KrebMarkt (talk) 21:20, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

French review check[edit]

Could you do a quick French review check for S.L.H Stray Love Hearts! and Barajō no Kiss? I know the first one has a French publisher and one small review, but I'm striking out on the other one. —Farix (t | c) 23:01, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

I would keep Stray Love Hearts! as publication in France just started with more volumes & coverages to come and send Barajō no Kiss to AfD. --KrebMarkt (talk) 07:48, 24 July 2010 (UTC)


You might be correct in that indie bands don't usually do anime themes, but there's a lot more anime than what gets seen outside of Japan, and even most major bands don't have the themes they do noted as such unless somebody has put it in someplace. So trying to prove that indie bands do or don't do themes is just about impossible. My main contention, however, was that the claims that met notability were unsourced, so as long as that has been addressed, there's no need to prod the main article. MSJapan (talk) 20:37, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Where did you get the sales figures from? There aren't any on the Oricon site, and TBH, if total album sales were under 1000, that's pretty bad. I also note that they're playing indie festivals and venues, so is Geneon still a major label like Pioneer was? MSJapan (talk) 19:07, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Seikon no Qwaser Commendation[edit]

Many salutations!!! I verily appreciate your commendation of my handiwork in doing away with the anime subsection on The Qwaser of Stigmata; I figured that the article would look better and make more sense with that change -- especially since I was working on an episode synopsis page that mostly applies to the anime. At any rate, I am grateful for the positive acknowledgment (^_^).

Dairi no Kenkyo (talk) 19:07, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

. . .[edit]

Uh, excuse me, but I need this explained to me:

Use of tables are for those who suck at English prose writing. Yes Wikipedia prefers proses instead of tables.

If you have not already guessed, I have taken great umbrage at this remark. I have the capability to write English prose as I have demonstrated on throughout my time as a Wikipedia editor. I exerted a significant effort to configure the table code so that it appears the way I want it. If there is data about the soundtracks that I have forgotten to include when I initially coded the table such as the catalog designation, that could have been added into the *Performance Parameter* column where appropriate and it would have worked really well.

Dairi no Kenkyo (talk) 03:03, 24 September 2010 (UTC)


I've elaborated on my reasoning based on your response. The tilde is not going to be made the only exception to the rule. I also don't know what Dears has to do with the discussion. Capitalization is not the issue at hand. It's that the colon and parentheses to designate other parts of the title of media do not accurately reflect the name of the subject of the article.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 22:35, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Oh, I see. The proposal is to end the deprecation of all such typographies. The use of the tilde as a designator of a portion of a song's full title (whether or not that is actually the subtitle of the song) is merely an example being used. Something like ~cohana~ would be ~Cohana~ if there is a consensus to change.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 07:49, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Major problems[edit]

I realize you don't like NGE, but i've been trying to find some way to edit those articles into a more nuetral POV. after discussing with gwern about removing the over usage of block quotes. she revealed she doesn't care about making these articles up to GA rank, GA doesn't symbolize the quality of the article and that she admits the articles are different from the rest (in a good way) that they are more "artistic" and "commericalized". this really, puts a dent to the series, and i've been trying to summarize the trivia in them for a while. You would be doing me a huge favor if you helped me out and find a way to get these articles to a better prose.Bread Ninja (talk) 00:18, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Fan Websites -- A special one.[edit]

I just wanted to leave a comment on you Talk page. When you discussed your logic not to list the site in the article, -- because it was a fan web site and, as you state, "...what would happen if 20 other fan websites wanted to be listed as well? ". I agree with you *but* I cannot find not one other fansite that, 1. Says it is official, 2. Has streaming rights with both a US company CrunchyRoll and the original rights holder for the first season.

Therefore, in my mind, this site is an exception and it appears that they take the fact that they are "Official" to the extreme. You will not even find one ad on their site, not even a donate link, which is more that I can say for Wikipedia. I assume this to done not because they are stupid or rich but to live up to the statement on the homepage of: which states the only goal that they have in mind, to promote the show. The thing that comes close to an ad is the link back to the CR site.

Still my opinion that this fansite is special and not just a normal fan site and it should be listed as an external site link.

Neat. :D My understanding is that there is very little available on josei manga - there may be an introduction in Manga: The Complete Guide. User:Matt_Thorn/Sandbox_3 may be useful, as it has some citations and general thoughts from Matt Thorn and Timothy Perper. User:JRBrown seems very well informed about yaoi, so perhaps she has read something more on josei. --Malkinann (talk) 21:46, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

English-language josei sources I have come across below. I have (or can get) PDFs of most of these, if you can't. Most are older and focus on the more sexually-oriented "ladies' comics" subgenre rather than the modern josei category. There are also a few articles that deal specifically with individual works (not listed, but I can add them if you like).
  • Kinko Ito, 2002: The World of Japanese Ladies' Comics: From Romantic Fantasy to Lustful Perversion, The Journal of Popular Culture Volume 36, Issue 1, pages 68–85
  • Fusami Ogi, 2003: Female Subjectivity and Shoujo (Girls) Manga (Japanese Comics): Shoujo in Ladies' Comics and Young Ladies' Comics, Volume 36, Issue 4, pages 780–803

I've become interested lately in the inactivity of editors and failure to incorporate new content, and I've been compiling a list of all my edits to talk pages listing new content for inclusion (especially edits where I supply both the link and the relevant excerpts).

While doing so, I remembered/noticed your own edits in that vein. Have you compiled a similar list besides your contributions page or kept any track of how many of your such edits ever lead to any changes in the respective article? --Gwern (contribs) 17:48 21 August 2011 (GMT)

Thought you'd like to know: I've finished my program for checking this. The results were pretty much as I expected from eyeballing the edits: of your last 958 edits (Dec 2010-Dec 2011), only 119 pages (<=12%) now include a link from that edit.
And this is an overestimate because my script checks whether any URL in your edit is now linked in the article, which means there will be duplicates inflating the tally. See for the full write-up.
In the future, maybe you shouldn't bother adding the references to the Talk pages, but just add them to the External Links; then at least the readers can visit them. --Gwern (contribs) 23:20 21 December 2011 (GMT)

The first volume has been published in English, I noticed, with an ANN review and has hit the top 10.

You could probably get it undeleted now, or at least soon as the volumes and reviews presumably keep coming out. --Gwern (contribs) 16:10 21 December 2011 (GMT)
