do you know what question this person was talking about?[edit]

WP:RD/E at; reading a template and asked about it , there's a person asking about book volumes from a manga or whatever? 66.87.112.219 (talk) 15:08, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

I think you are talking about Wikipedia:Reference desk/Entertainment#reading a template and asked about it.. It took me a couple of re-reads but I think I understand tainted-wingz question. Tainted wings is talking about the Template: Graphic novel list template and how it doesn't offer an example for chapters that don't have an official English title? @Tainted-wingsz: am I understanding you correctly?Blue Pumpkin Pie (talk) 15:48, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Ah, yes. But at the time I asked this at WP:COMIC, while from the template had three different WikiProjects there (on its talk page) and I asked it on one of them. But while I was thinking that, regular comics still has isbns and have to use the template. I was leading towards asking there. But not over here. Which I should of did earlier ago. Then back from when I asked a question at WT:TV. By this archive question. You can only ask one question on one WikiProject, but not on both. (I think it was from the edit summary? And a few instances like posting the same question on the help desk and the tea house. Then which-ever question was posted first has to be at one of the two.)

Also I have the info to it. From the sand box with-out the volume/ book title. Tainted-wingsz (talk) 15:25, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

is this the manga Hanebado!. You wonder about? 66.87.112.219 (talk) 15:31, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

@Tainted-wingsz: Template:Graphic novel list comes with the option to provide the parameter |OneLanguage=yes - that indicates that the work hasn't been licensed and there is only one language (Japanese, in your case). I would strongly advise against translating the chapter titles yourself; that's arguably original research. Huon (talk) 23:35, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
So, I should take the info out? In the ChapterListCol1 and leave the summary alone? Tainted-wingsz (talk) 00:22, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
@Tainted-wingsz: I'm not quite sure what info you consider taking out. At Hanebado! (and in your sandbox) I don't see English translations, only transliterations. Those I'd leave in place. The summaries also look OK to me. Huon (talk) 03:30, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Ah? Yes? If just having this; * 1st Rally {{nihongo}} is ok? But with an English spelling is mostly rejected. When I was adding the summaries and the Japanese named chapter titles. When it moves away. My thought was, with using the ChapterListCol1 where it has plainly * 1st Rally {{nihongo|Osananajimi no Hanesaki Ayano Desu|幼馴染みの羽咲綾乃です少年の誓い}}, * 2nd Rally {{nihongo}} etc. But those were from the original book's publisher/ distributor web-site. Then that info is viewed as... And could of been taken out or removed? Unless its licensed. Tainted-wingsz (talk) 13:46, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
You can remove decorative chapter headers (e.g. 37th punch, 38th period) if there is a further detailed chapter title. And then add a note such as: Individual chapters of the series are called punches, for example, chapter 37 is "Punch 37". AngusWOOF (barksniff) 13:49, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
If the chapters aren't known in English but have a Japanese title, then you can just leave it as empty nihongos as with L DK. If the chapters don't have any titles but are simply numbered, then you can just list "This volume covers chapters 49-52." or "Chapters 1–30 from Weekly Shōnen Magazine" like in Seitokai Yakuindomo or Aho Girl. If the chapters don't have titles and they are not numbered, then you don't need to put in chapters, as with the English version of Otomen. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:11, 7 May 2019 (UTC)
The chapters are like how the first suggestion is. But they aren't numbered; as to chapter X title (1), (2), which means its chapter X part 1, part 2, and group it under one chapter name. Then it repeats. It's similar to Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba volume listing. Tainted-wingsz (talk) 22:12, 7 May 2019 (UTC)

Bungo Stray Dogs[edit]

I have been expanding some Bungo Stray Dogs articles, creating some for the manga, the anime, the film and the character Dazai. The film's article, Bungo Stray Dogs: Dead Apple might need an expansion in terms of plot while I'm not sure if there is a need to create an article for the characters in general. I'm only following the anime for now so I don't know too much about what happens to the cast in the manga storyline or light novels. Cheers.Tintor2 (talk) 00:10, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

This source talks about how much the manga has sold in Japan which might help to create a reception section. By any chance does anybody know the original material they are citing. I'm not sure if this comes as a reliable source.Tintor2 (talk) 23:58, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Case Closed -> Detective Conan again[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Case Closed which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 15:18, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

need an opinion about this?[edit]

There's an ip that is introducing red links to a person's name, like here. So, I'm not sure what would be next, its been a few days where they've been doing that? Tainted-wingsz (talk) 01:49, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

You could refer them to WP:REDNOT as they are probably not interested in creating all those voice actor articles. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 02:45, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello everybody.

Should Kodomo no Jikan be categorized as lolicon?[edit]

Bringing this topic back up since there is no consensus on the matter. View my rationale here. Sk8erPrince (talk) 05:45, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
