Archive of refused requests[edit]

  • Editors assessing and fulfilling/refusing requests should update this page when a request is refused.
  • Items in this list should only be created and removed from it if the indicated issues can be resolved or shown to be incorrect.
  • This archive is not static! Series that fail notability at one time may pass it in the future, and editors are encouraged to periodically search for new signs of notability for the series on this page. This is not limited to requests here, even series which had articles that were deleted for failing notability can eventually pass it.



  • A Gun Report as it won't meet WP:BK even it's Katsuhiro Ōtomo (Akira) first publication. Katsuhiro Ōtomo article has no manga section which is uber wrong.

  • Ai Hime - Ai to Himegoto (Kako Mitsuki manga) as it won't meet WP:BK, ANN page won't do and no licensor in Germany, France & Spain.:
  • Akira Club as part of Akira (manga);
  • Animal Channel (アニマルチャンネル) by Shiori Yuwa (佑羽栞) as this two volumes series won't meet WP:BK; no licensor in Germany, France, Spain & Italy.
  • Anime outside Japan The anime equivalent of Manga outside Japan. Could be based on the last three sections of the anime article. Refused as beyond the capabilities of the sole requested article department (even if we would like to do it) and suggested strongly that request of that level should be made at WT:ANIME where it could gather consensus and support.

  • Kyonko (キョン子) a female version of Kyon from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Too in-topic. Unnotable as google search links to non-RS fan sites. I'll leave this for a second opinion. "Second opinion": the requested articles section don't handle anime/manga related character specific article and in the Kyonko case, its notability is not asserted as it is a non-official doujinshi gender swap character. If you want a such article discuss it in the The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya page and bring enough evidences of notability to convince people there.
