The anime has Fantasy as a genre listed which i removed as it is a clear cyberpunk show but it came back. I know that the linked Madman lists Sci-Fi & Fantasy together but that still doesn´t make it a fantasy show and only sci-fi.
Thanks for your all your efforts here! I watched No. 6 and I'm sure that it belongs -among others- to the Shonen-ai genre. However, I recognize now that a more reliable source than the ANN encyclopedia has to be provided. Anime fan & Wikipedia noob: Xclub (talk) 06:15, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
JoJo: Stardust Crusaders
Since Ryulong is 再起不能 due to other matters and clearly not budging, could you please weigh in on Talk:Stardust_Crusaders again?
My points: -It's the manga page. There is a page for the anime, and Crunchyroll-related material can go there. -The anime is an adapted work containing "filler" and other artistic details obviously not in the original manga. -Crunchyroll is subbing the anime (in a contract capacity, their subs aren't used in home releases). -CR translated those titles awkwardly to make a rhyming pun. -Similarly, Viz's titles are condensed due to adaptation reasons. -Neither fit on the page next to JP characters that read differently. IE: cognitive dissonance. -There's no need for a fourth set of "official" titles, as the page is crowded enough. -I believe the way it's been the past few years was fine. If Viz's titles were more thorough, I'd have put them up years ago. -Ryulong is biased (see: "awkward as fuck phrasing" in the page's History when reverting me) and seems to edit for his own sake besides.
The removal of genres at Mushoku Tensei. It is edited exactly the same as No Game No Life, which I know cause everything on both those articles were done by me. In addition, most GA's don't even have a source besides the genre. Did you find Mushoku Tensei from my contribution history? DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 06:37, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
- Genres must always be supported by reliable sources, just like everything else on the article. Just because some GAs slipped though without having their genres sourced doesn't mean that genres are exempt from the requirements of WP:V and WP:NOR. I found the article by keeping track of changes in Category:Manga series and noticed that someone randomly added a genre. However, while looking at the sources that were on the article, I did not see any mention of what genres the work is. —Farix (t | c) 11:14, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

TheFarix: I'm handing over "Ai Ore!" completely to you because it's rather a mess...
- Unlike other manga articles where the "Original ISBN" points to a Japanese edition and the "English ISBN" points to an English translation, in "Ai Ore!", the "Original ISBN" and the "English ISBN" are essentially the same. The only difference—the "Original ISBN" is ISBN-10 and the "English ISBN" is ISBN-13. The one exception, of course, is the "Original ISBN" for volume 3; it's an invalid ISBN-13 and the reason that I was sent to this article.
- Moreover, all ISBNs point to an English edition, which confuses me. Were Japanese editions ever produced? If yes, where are the Japanese ISBNs?
- All links to vizmedia.com are dead (but I did not comment them out)...same problem as Akita Shoten links. Knife-in-the-drawer (talk) 00:48, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
I fixed ISBN number in all other manga articles. I removed these since they refer to the English version and are in fact a duplicate of the LicencedISBN column. I was unable to find Japanese versions of these. -- Magioladitis (talk) 08:24, 12 June 2015 (UTC)
List of Nodame Cantabile chapters
In "List of Nodame Cantabile chapters", all Kodansha links are dead. I did not comment them out (because they are not causing an ISBN error), nor did I flag them with a "dead link" template (there are too many).
First, I didn't add a source for the information because the website for it in Japan hasn't updated the information yet for some reason, despite the fact that the next episode is airing then. Second, you didn't need to remove the whole section because of that, all you actually should have removed was the air date. The title and episode number are official. And Third (this one is more me nit picking, and you don't need to pay attention to it if you don't want to) you didn't have to say that I didn't add a reliable source if I didn't add a source at all, all you needed to say was that I didn't add a source. I will re add the information for it but, I will not add the air date this time until crunchyroll adds when it will be added to their website so that we know for sure that it is airing on that day.Ichigo341578926 (talk) 00:48 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Sorry to convey so many problems to you lately. CheckWiki has been making some positive changes to its software, and consequently, ISBN errors are clearly revealing themselves.
In X-Day (manga), I commented out the following urls to, yup, Akita Shoten:

彼女達のエクス・デイ 第2巻 (in Japanese). Akita Shoten. Retrieved January 18, 2010.
- Stop, just stop. You are clearly violating WP:KDL. Dead links should not be removed or commented out, but either fixed or tagged. You are just creating more problems for other editors. —Farix (t | c) 11:34, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
Farix Akita Shoten seems to have no sign of the pages above. I'll try to help in adding new urls. It's good that Knife-in-the-drawer keeps a record of them. We already started fixing some of them. -- Magioladitis (talk) 11:52, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
- The way Knife-in-the-drawer is doing it is not acceptable. He should not be deleting or otherwise disabling links as that is against Wikipedias polices. Bad ISBNs are not a serious enough problem to be going around and deleting/disabeling links. —Farix (t | c)
Here are some points:
- No big damage is done since we have a record of all the link that were disabled/removed
- Akita Shoten does not have these pages nowhere in their record. I search with every possible way.
- The links are only used to reference the release date. While I really like that the release date is referenced, most books in Wikipedia do not reference this.
- I will have everything fixed till tomorrow (fingers crossed).
- Thanks for taking the time to fix them. I often barely have enough time to keep track of vandalism/unsourced information in the manga articles. However, next time I see Knife-in-the-drawer deleting or disabling a url in a reference, I will be reporting him to ANI for disruptive editing. ISBNs is not something one should be doing deleting or disabling urls over because it actually harms the integrity of Wikipedia. A broken url can be eventually fixed or replaced. A deleted/disabled one will not because other editors cannot not find it.
- As for Akita Shoten not have those pages, that is incorrect. Akita Shoten redesigned their website and changed the structure of their urls. It just takes a bit of searching through their catalog.
- And even if Akita Shoten hadn't redesigned their website, of those were the correct urls to begin with, they should not be removed simply because they have a "bad" ISBN number. A bad ISBN number in a url has no consequences for the reader, though a bad or dead link does. —Farix (t | c) 13:24, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
A bot will fix the links Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/HasteurBot 11. -- Magioladitis (talk) 16:55, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
Hi, I started a move discussion at Talk:Tien_Shinhan#Requested_move_14_June_2015 in regards to having the article use Viz Media's spelling. Since it is the same case as Freeza, I thought you might be interested. Xfansd (talk) 15:21, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
I am just wondering about the plot section of Prétear. As I have seen in many, many, many, many other main anime-related pages, the plot would show a brief overview of the series, rather than a big summary of the series. When I created the Episode list table at the bottom of the page.... and written the summaries myself.... I was already summarizing the series by episode. There are many, many, many, many other main anime-related pages I could refer to proving my statement if you believe otherwise. The plot section, which you reverted back to the big summary, mostly duplicates the episode summaries I have written in the Episode list table. So my question to you is why have a big summary in the plot section, when they are already noted in the Episode list table? Shouldn't there be a brief overview of the series instead? Or is there a separate standard for this ONE main anime-related page? AnimeEditor (talk) 00:45, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
- The vast majority of articles on anime and manga are incomplete. There could be a number of reasons for this from that the series is still ongoing to that an editor hasn't taken the time watch or read the series to write a full plot of it. But just because other articles have incomplete summaries does not mean we take a complete summary and make it incomplete. Ideally, the plot section should be comprehensive while still being concise by not elaborating on unimportant details. If you look at the quality rated articles, you will see that the plot sections attempt this. —Farix (t | c) 10:47, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
I know what you are saying, but why is the plot section describing the content of the episodes, when the summaries in episode list have already did the describing? I researched many different anime-related pages today, excluding special anime movie pages, that the plot section is just an overview, a brief one that basically sums up the series as a whole. The plot section of Prétear went into detail (just as I have already did in the episode summaries). I am still puzzled as to why the plot section "summary" has to be just like the summaries in the episode list? Aren't those summaries concise enough? I guess I just don't understand the reason why the plot section is just like the summaries in the episode list, both giving out concise material and both saying generally the same thing. From what I have seen, I thought the plot section was an overview of the storyline, not the storyline itself. However, if this is the case, you got a lot of work ahead of you if you are changing overviews to storylines in all of the main anime pages. AnimeEditor (talk) 16:28, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
Regarding Japanese citations
If a user places a citation in the article on a reception section for a review, but the site is in Japanese, the review was translated on a forum, and he didn't go through one of the approved translators on Wikipedia, is it still a valid citation? I have no way of verifying what the review actually says.Whitearcher (talk) 01:35, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
