Short run manga anthology magazine, only ran for 5 issues. No ja.wiki article. The Italian wiki page is just a translation of an older revision. A stub article should be capable of expanding into a Start or higher class, I don't see the possibility for that to happen and proving notability would be extremely difficult considering the short run.

This is an article about a Japanese economist who is an associate professor at Ibaraki University. The article creator has previously posted reasons why the article should be deleted on the article's talk page, but I am not convinced that is enough to satisfy notability. I commenced translating the article, but ran out of motivation when I started to doubt the notability. I also believe it may be either an autobiography or written by someone close to the subject, as the author's only contributions on both the English and Japanese Wikis have been concerning Noda. If anybody wants help understanding the Japanese or has particular questions regarding the contents, I am willing to help with that. AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 07:47, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

After an examination of IMDB, seems to fail general notability guidelines, and specially fails to assert WP:BIO and WP:NACTOR. On the few films, on which she get a listing, she is not even on the main cast list. Probably a young actress. scope_creep 14:15, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Keep: it's badly written as it stands, but it probably does pass WP:NALBUM – the singer is notable (her name should be linked in the text to Yui (singer)), the album has also charted in South Korea and in Taiwan as well as in Japan, and it has been certified platinum in Japan. What it needs is some independent sources announcing the album's release, reviews, etc. (and a Japanese-speaking editor to translate them) to provide some text for the article body. Richard3120 (talk) 15:00, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Keep Omg, I listen to this so frequently and YUI is one of my favourite singers. This is a compilation album and it was certified platinum by RIAJ. (See this for citation. Select December 2012 in the drop down box and search "YUI"). There is an album profile on Sony Music Japan, so a tracklist can be verified easily. But yes, more independent sources would help. I will try rewriting the article a bit. --Lemongirl942 (talk) 16:57, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
  • I've improved it a bit now - add image, infobox, tracklisting and some more details. --Lemongirl942 (talk) 04:22, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
  • As is, it should be redirected per WP:NALBUMS: "Notability aside, a standalone article is only appropriate when there is enough material to warrant a reasonably detailed article." No prejudice to keep should that be done prior to the close of this discussion. --StarcheerspeaksnewslostwarsTalk to me 17:15, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

No independent evidence he's a notable martial artist. My search found no significant independent coverage and the article's sources are simply a list of his books. He fails both WP:GNG and WP:MANOTE. He doesn't inherit notability from his instructors, high rank doesn't show notability, and creating your own style doesn't show notability. Article was apparently created by a student of his style. Nothing in the article shows he meets any notability criteria.Mdtemp (talk) 16:53, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Delete The only real claim of notability appears to be that he has authored some karate books, but I see nothing to show he meets WP:AUTHOR. The references consist of a list of his books, which are certainly not independent of him, and fail to show he meets WP:GNG. Papaursa (talk) 00:20, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Still nothing at all suggesting the needed independent notability as his listed works are not major or otherwise convincing and the majority only seems to be as a gun effects worker; my searches have found nothing better and the Japanese Wiki has nothing better.

I'm not seeing much for coverage. Was active in the 2000s. She has a starring role in 5 cm, I's, and Aika R-16/Zero, and possibly main in Haibane, but none of those are real standout roles in the anime industry. Only one anime convention appearance. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 06:38, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
