Another BLP with no established notability as per WP:GNG, with little or no coverage around the web. I also notice that the article is in pretty bad shape, bordering either on WP:OR or WP:FANCRUFT, and WP:CITEIMDB, which are not good. Bluesphere 08:04, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Clearly non-notable wrestler. Made professional debut in 2016 and now permanently injured. All references are from within the wrestling community with no independent 3rd-party WP:RS to support inclusion. One of a swathe of articles on wrestlers of no apparent merit for inclusion, also with no supporting citations, apart from lots of brief entries on wrestling match databases and online video websites. Does not seem to meet WP:SPORTSPERSON or WP:ENTERTAINER. Nick Moyes (talk) 00:33, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

I could also add the following examples of similar articles of little apparent merit and no 3rd party sources outside of the wrestling match lists:

  • Delete, do not meet WP:GNG, no significant coverage, most of it in the form of "this guy beat that guy" with no real achievements in their careers.  MPJ-DK  02:10, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Nick Moyes if you meant to include the other three articles in the deletion request then you did not do it right, if you just brought them up as examples then that's irrelevant to this deletion request (and misleading the way it's listed).  MPJ-DK  09:16, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
OK, sorry, it was more to help others determine whether or not I was approaching the rationale behind this particular AfD in the right manner or not. I know zilch about professional wrestling, but see long, detailed, multi-referenced articles that look well-written, but seem just promotional in nature. To that end I posted this question on the Wrestling Project page after posting this AfD, so that I can better understand guidelines for wrestling notability. Hope I've not muddied the waters.

Delete because it fails WP:CORP. This article appears to be the result of a couple of articles that appeared after Miyako Taxi of Kyota launched a new policy where its cab drivers would no longer engage their passengers in conversation. There is not any of the in-depth coverage required by WP:CORP. Miyako Taxi of Kyota is only a relatively small Japanese taxi company. "Miyako Taxi" is a name used by a number of local taxi companies throughout Japan; see Talk:Miyako Taxi#Possible confusion. In fact, the Japanese Wikipedia article about Miyako Taxi is about the one in Miyazaki City. Perhaps it deserves mention in an article about Japanese transport, although I note that taxis are not discussed in the section Transport in Japan#Road, nor anywhere in the Transport in Japan article. --Bejnar (talk) 14:07, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Non-notable voice actor, listed as a main supporting in Hime-sama Goyojin, and supporting character Shigemori Sumimura in Kekkaishi, that is not enough to meet WP:ENT.

Manga artist only known for the Haikyu series. As shown in the opening paragraph, manga artist has never attended any event, so notability independent of the series is difficult to assess. Recommend direct to Haikyu. JA Wikipedia shows some interviews but most are in the context of Haikyu. But this can be reviewed to see if that has enough for Furudate's notability.

Manga artist known mainly for Saru Lock (22 volumes), has some manga titles for Resident Evil (Biohazard/heavenly island) and Resident Evil: The Marhawa Desire, but is that enough to keep around? I looked at Resident_Evil#Comics but do not see it listed. Has been tagged for notability since 2011, and outside of Resident Evil, not much improvement on the article. JA Wikipedia isn't promising either, barely a stub there with just a short list of works. MADB isn't showing anything for his anime either, so it must be all manga artist stuff.

  • Redirect - I have a vague feeling that deletion may be the wiser choice in this case, but after considerable reflection I can't come up with any defensible reason why. The only concern I can put forth is that Saru Lock may not be the most appropriate redirect target, but if so then it's easy enough for someone to change it later.--Martin IIIa (talk) 15:15, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Non-notable voice actor. Mei Karuma in Ace Attorney is a supporting role, Kyouka in Engage Planet Kiss Drum is supporting, and Miyuki in Present is also supporting. Not much to go on for now so it is WP:TOOSOON to have an article. ANN shows no news articles. BTVA confirms no roles so it is useless as a reference. Being a Keira Knightley voice-over doesn't show notability either. JA Wikipedia also has no biography and is just a credits list. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:08, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

While he may not be doing the traditional work of other actors Angus has edited, he has certainly made a mark on the internet and social media, he has linked back a lot of his credits for sourcing on announcements and the sort. I feel his wikipedia is not up for deletion and reverted back to his original state, if you need confirmation, message him and requests sources on everything provided.

Per WP:GNG, you need to provide secondary sources independent of the subject that cover his career. If he's that big of an Internet star, he needs news articles as with DanTDM, Stampy Cat or PewDiePie. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 23:14, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
Also, he shouldn't be editing his own article as that is a conflict of interest. WP:COI, and the current status of the article makes it look like a WP:RESUME. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 23:18, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete - I'm seeing no reliable sources at this point. Esw01407 (talk) 17:05, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Delete - No reliable sources are present. If some feel he is an upcoming voice actor then this is a case of WP:TOOSOON. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 13:48, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Manga artist known mainly for Saru Lock (22 volumes), has some manga titles for Resident Evil (Biohazard/heavenly island) and Resident Evil: The Marhawa Desire, but is that enough to keep around? I looked at Resident_Evil#Comics but do not see it listed. Has been tagged for notability since 2011, and outside of Resident Evil, not much improvement on the article. JA Wikipedia isn't promising either, barely a stub there with just a short list of works. MADB isn't showing anything for his anime either, so it must be all manga artist stuff.

  • Redirect - I have a vague feeling that deletion may be the wiser choice in this case, but after considerable reflection I can't come up with any defensible reason why. The only concern I can put forth is that Saru Lock may not be the most appropriate redirect target, but if so then it's easy enough for someone to change it later.--Martin IIIa (talk) 15:15, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Non-notable voice actor. Mei Karuma in Ace Attorney is a supporting role, Kyouka in Engage Planet Kiss Drum is supporting, and Miyuki in Present is also supporting. Not much to go on for now so it is WP:TOOSOON to have an article. ANN shows no news articles. BTVA confirms no roles so it is useless as a reference. Being a Keira Knightley voice-over doesn't show notability either. JA Wikipedia also has no biography and is just a credits list. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 00:08, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

  • Comment - The Japanese Wikipedia does have a few sources, though. Have you checked those out?--Martin IIIa (talk) 14:04, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
They appear to be film cast announcements. I've added them to the article. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 14:24, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Weak delete - Unfortunately, despite my best efforts, I was unable to find enough significant coverage about her. However, if anyone can confirm that she has had more main roles, I'm willing tor reconsider my !vote. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 11:32, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
