Appears to be purely promotional material for someone who is in a WP:TOOSOON situation. However, notability is difficult to assess because all the sources are in Japanese -- if someone could ping wikiproject Japan, that might help. Possibly recommend userfying or a move back to draft space. The individual might eventually be notable, but isn't quite yet even if you combine NMODEL, NACTOR to get to GNG.

Not enough coverage in independent, reliable sources to verify or sustain article. Fails Wikipedia's General Notability Guidelines. After removing links to his students businesses/web pages and a quote from a blog the remaining sources are to the landing page of a magazine and to, per its URL, a blog.

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.

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)

  • keep Page needs some improvement but there is no reason to delete this article for being an episode summary. It's a legitimate spin out article and clearly too large for the parent. A case of bringing the article upto a better standard rather than deleting it. I'll also point out that it is an extremely new article so It's reasonable to expect those improvements to come.SephyTheThird (talk) 21:51, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep per above. Aoba47 (talk) 22:35, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment The only reason to get rid of this would be if all the summaries were copy/pasted from another website as a copyright violation. But an episode list with only title and number is acceptable for the main article or spun out to the list article if it is physically too big. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:41, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
  • 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.

  • Strong Delete - It is a completely unnecessary Fork of List of cities in Japan. In fact, it is literally nothing more than a copy/paste of the first portion of the List of Cities in Japan as it existed in 2011, when this article was created. 64.183.45.226 (talk) 23:13, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Strong delete. Unnecessary content fork. Ajf773 (talk) 06:05, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment - based on the title, it appears to me that the creator's intent was to have a single list containing all of the municipalities within Japan. Currently the municipalities are spread over four different lists at (1) List of cities in Japan, (2) List of towns in Japan, (3) Special wards of Tokyo#List of special wards and (4) List of villages in Japan. Having a single list would match the contents of ja:日本の地方公共団体一覧 on the Japanese Wikipedia. However, the creator of this page walked away from it after doing about 2% of the work. Given this situation, I would like to ask the nominator and the other people who have already voted above (XXN, 64.183.45.226 and Ajf773) to consider whether a single list would be beneficial, or is the current situation spread over four separate pages sufficient? If such a list would serve a purpose, this page could be moved to Draft:List of municipalities in Japan so that it could be completed. AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 05:31, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete - The town, city, village lists are all we need, I so no reason why we'd also need a list of all of them combined. In other words, I agree it's a CFORK. And if the criteria are broader than that, then we're in WP:INDISCRIMINATE territory. Fyddlestix (talk) 19:00, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Keep I agree with Shinnosukeandme. There doesn't seem to be any compelling reason to delete this list. Lepricavark (talk) 21:36, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
  • keep Page needs some improvement but there is no reason to delete this article for being an episode summary. It's a legitimate spin out article and clearly too large for the parent. A case of bringing the article upto a better standard rather than deleting it. I'll also point out that it is an extremely new article so It's reasonable to expect those improvements to come.SephyTheThird (talk) 21:51, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Keep per above. Aoba47 (talk) 22:35, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Comment The only reason to get rid of this would be if all the summaries were copy/pasted from another website as a copyright violation. But an episode list with only title and number is acceptable for the main article or spun out to the list article if it is physically too big. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:41, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
  • 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)

That's odd, those sources didn't appear in my search. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 02:08, 12 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. However, I wouldn't keep this if most of the anime industry doesn't really care about using this convention for promoting anything. I only see one person from Viz Media who regularly attends, and have no idea who the other sponsors are. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 07:58, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Delete Its hard argue that this isn't a promotional article.

We are not a marketing provider.SephyTheThird (talk) 16:30, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

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. We have no issue keeping in line with the requirements to maintain the integrity of the site, as long as we figure out what that is. Cacaniwiki (talk) 22:57, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
