Ni no Kuni mobile games[edit]

Hi there! I'm looking for some references regarding the Ni no Kuni mobile games (Ni no Kuni: Hotroit Stories and Ni no Kuni: Daibouken Monsters). Since these games were only released in Japan, and my grasp on the language is still quite basic, I was wondering if anybody at this WikiProject would be able to help me (I'm assuming there's quite a few people here that speak the language quite fluently). If you can find any information regarding the development, or some of the reviews, please let me know. Similar development/reception information regarding the Japan-exclusive Nintendo DS version of the game (Ni no Kuni: Dominion of the Dark Djinn) would also be greatly appreciated. Thank you! – Rhain1999 (talk to me) 10:33, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Here is an article from online version of ja:日経トレンディ, mostly about the background of relationship between GREE and Level-5. And here is an article from online version of Famitsu, deals with Hotroit Stories, introduces it's positon in the story of whole series. Game system about Daibouken Monsters here.[1][2] But unfortunately I couldn't find any information about development.--Akiyama(tentative) (talk) 22:52, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for finding those! I'm sure they will be very helpful. – Rhain1999 (talk to me) 10:22, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

From Shogun to Prime Minister[edit]

I have come across this recent edit, which purports that Itō Hirobumi, Japan's first Prime Minister, "succeeded" Tokugawa Yoshinobu, the last Shogun. There is a corresponding entry in the infobox of Yoshinobu's article. I do not agree with the articles saying that the two subjects preceded/succeeded each other. The main reason being that there was a period of almost 20 years in between them during which time other groups of people were de facto rulers. But before deleting the two entries, I would like to hear the opinion of others. Thanks, AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 01:10, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

I can agree with you. In the article, it says "On November 9, 1867, Yoshinobu tendered his resignation to the Emperor and formally stepped down ten days later, returning governing power to the Emperor." Following year, on Junuary 3, 1868, Meiji government abolished the position of shogun (ja:王政復古 (日本)), so Tokugawa Yoshinobu is the last shogun of all time. In regards to the governing power, Emperor Meiji is the one who succeeded in 1867.--Akiyama(tentative) (talk) 15:10, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your comment Akiyama(tentative). Since it's been a week and nobody else has spoken up, I'll make the changes. AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 02:20, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Just made a super-messy edit to an article lead -- any advice?[edit]

I just did this. The previous wording was both technically inaccurate and insufficient, but the new wording is probably unreadable. Since I wrote it it's kind of difficult to be objective (obviously it's not unreadable to me). Any thoughts on how it could be improved? Hijiri 88 (やや) 11:43, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

@Hijiri88: It looks fine to me. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 14:52, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
The sentence would work without "which is also the name of a specific sect within the branch". The fact that Nichiren-shū is also a sect could be mentioned in the "Major Nichiren Buddhist schools and organisations" section. Alternatively, this clause could be put in a footnote: 日蓮宗 Nichiren-shū 1
1. Nichiren-shū also the name of a specific sect within the branch.--Wikimedes (talk) 18:13, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Japan WikiProject input request[edit]

Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Proposal.

Another user and I are up for a mutual topic ban from "Japanese culture" because our mutual interaction ban has been an absolute failure. I and at least one other (User:Sturmgewehr88) believe the TBAN proposal is too broad and should be changed to "new religious movements based on Nichiren Buddhism". The proposer (User:Beyond My Ken) disagrees. If I am indefinitely banned from "Japanese culture" -- the only topic area I have ever shown any interest in editing -- I'm probably going to leave Wikipedia, except to maybe appeal the ban.

Some input from other WikiProject Japan members would be appreciated.
