GAN backlogs[edit]

So it seems we've got a bunch of GANs that are on backlog at the moment (see the to-do list and the article alerts for the actual articles that need to be checked). Anyone willing to review the said articles, or refer them to people who do GANs? Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 15:50, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

According to the news, the only GAN is Spike Spiegel. I would review it, but I'm afraid of being biased since I have been working with the nominator for some time.Tintor2 (talk) 17:08, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
Oh wait Himegoto is also a GAN.Tintor2 (talk) 19:21, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
I'll be reviewing Himegoto.Tintor2 (talk) 20:07, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
@Tintor2: Thanks for reviewing Himegoto. Well LiSA (Japanese musician, born 1987) is up for GAN as well, as well as a few other articles which for some reason weren't added to the to-do list. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 00:17, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Okay, how about this @Narutolovehinata5:? I'll review LiSA and somebody else will review Spike?Tintor2 (talk) 16:32, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
@Tintor2: Fine with me. Pinging Bobamnertiopsis as he seems to be experienced when it comes to GANs. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 22:45, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Supernatural and fantasy[edit]

Please come participate in the discussion. Thanks. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 02:05, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Agreed. It would be very helpful to have consensus based on reliable sources. Edward321 (talk) 05:35, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Please keep the discussion over there. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 07:41, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Wicked City novels[edit]

Does anyone here have copies of the novels published in English? If so, could you take pictures of the copyright pages for The Other Side and The Scarlet Clan and point me to them? I'm trying to figure out which Japanese volumes they correspond to as none of the Japanese volumes have titles that would translate into those English titles. Thanks! ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 07:43, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

*Wicked City: The Other Side from Macmillan.
*Blackguard at Amazon with look inside says it was printed as "Youju Toshi" (妖獣都市) from 1985.
*Scartlet Clan at Amazon without look inside.
Love it when they do this by the way. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 17:19, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Possible new person[edit]

@Sigehelmus: is interested in helping with our project, welcome this editor here. =) - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 23:04, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Welcome Sigehelmus. Hope you enjoy editing Wikipedia.Tintor2 (talk) 00:26, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Everyone is welcome to come and make constructive edits tom improve the anime and manga coverage here. Welcome! ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 00:28, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
I see he's interested in Elfen Lied. Interestingly the show appears to be much more popular in the west than in Japan since the anime was a huge flop there sales-wise (didn't even average two thousand copies per DVD volume if I recall correctly). Anyway, ようこそ! Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 00:34, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
I really like the anime, and it had great premise they blew it though in the end with not answering enough questions. I wont give anymore away than that as Sigehelmus has said that they haven't seen the ending. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 01:29, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Thank you everyone, I'll do my best. Is there anything that happens when you sign up for a WikiProject? I'm going to read the MoS and all that, do you just use the main Portal page to keep track of things or are Projects and Portals not related?--Sıgehelmus (Talk) |д=) 02:09, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome to work on anything that interests you. The portals are a great place to start, as are any pages tagged with the project banner. You can see pages needing work by going to the main project page and looking at the various items listed at Wikipedia:WikiProject Anime and manga/Open tasks, as fixing any of the problem articles there would be awesome. We appreciate you joining us, and look forward to working with you. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 07:16, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Category:Yu-Gi-Oh! work group articles and further categorisation[edit]

The template {{WikiProject Anime and manga}} has a Yu-Gi-Oh switch, which classifies articles into categories like Category:Unassessed Yu-Gi-Oh! articles, Category:Unknown-importance Yu-Gi-Oh! articles and similar categories. Magicperson6969 has tagged these and similar categories for speedy deletion, but I have declined the speedy deletions as the categories are not empty. If these importance / quality assessment subcategories for the Yu-Gi-Oh workgroup are no longer needed, please edit {{WikiProject Anime and manga}} so they become empty. If not, please make sure articles in Category:Yu-Gi-Oh! work group articles are looked at and get proper assessment categories. If you need help with this, please let me know. —Kusma (t·c) 11:09, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Yup, that editor regularly does stuff like that. They never communicate with anyone, either, so it's very difficult to know why they do what they do. Thanks for catching that. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:40, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
@Nihonjoe: I am beginning to think this might be a case if WP:COMPETENCE. How many times has this user been warned about these things, only for them to refuse discussion about the problem at hand with a blank of their user-page? In my opinion I have seen this editors name pop up too much, and do not want to have to track edits that may/may not be helpful. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 20:48, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
It's very possible. I just check their edits every so often to make sure nothing egregious gets through ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 21:23, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
I would recommend bringing it up to AN. Magicperson6969's repeated reckless actions needs to end at some point, and I'm afraid it will only happen at the point of an indefinite block. —Farix (t | c) 11:58, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Having just "Category:Yu-Gi-Oh! work group" for the Yu-Gi-Oh! pages would be plenty, as the overall Yu-Gi-Oh! page amount is not that big (Kind of like the Dragon Ball work group, though that one has more pages). Magicperson6969 (talk) 06:35, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

They are sorted not just for this project, but into the overall assessment scheme on Wikipedia. That's the reason for the different categories. I am updating the categories, though, to show they are part of this project. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 08:10, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
WikiProject Yu-Gi-Oh! had it's own assessment system that was independent of WP:ANIME. Why should it not keep it? If you though the independent assessment wasn't needed, you should have discussed it with the project first before making such mass edits. You also went through and removed all Wikiproject Yu-Gi-Oh!'s tags without merging them it into {{WikiProject Anime and manga}}. That is especially reckless and frankly deserving of having your edits rolled back. —Farix (t | c) 11:58, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
I'll also add that you should never removed the project's template from redirect pages if there are previous discussions on that page. As you did with a number of Yu-Gi-Oh! character pages. —Farix (t | c) 12:05, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
I've gone through and restored all of {{WikiProject Yu-Gi-Oh!}}'s project templates as best I could until someone does a proper merge into {{WikiProject Anime and manga}}. —Farix (t | c) 12:27, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

A big mistake[edit]

I have been working in a chapter list for Seraph of the End here but for some reason after writing the sixth summary, the table is looking bad. Could anybody fix it or tell me how to? Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 20:49, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

The brackets were misplaced. You have to make sure that every opening pair of double brackets is matched by a closing pair at the appropriate place. In this case the summary was added after the brackets were closed and volume 5's summary wasn't closed either. To mitigate this in the future maybe you can try indenting every time a new template is used so it's much clearer when something is closed or not. For example:

Also, if you aren't already using the syntax highlighter gadget, I highly reccoment it; it helps make sense of all the bracket soup. Opencooper (talk) 21:06, 24 November 2015 (UTC)
