Last Episode Theme Reprise has many of non-anime examples, and IMHO the live-action TV uses indicate that this trope is not Japanese in nature. Should I put it in the "remove" category on Anime Tropes?
I see the Awesomeness.Any other objections? Also, Raso, I'd appreciate if you'd mention where you think Love Bubbles belongs rather than just defining it.
Love Bubbles is a Japanese thing. Don't think I've ever seen it in Western works.
Rhymes with "Protracted."
I see the Awesomeness.Love Bubbles added to Japanese Visual Arts Tropes. The others just look like remove. Based on Shima's testimony and her experience with older works, it should be added to Animation Tropes. Closet Sublet should just be removed. Also, given jkbeta's advice, I'll go ahead and move Last Episode Theme Reprise to the remove section.
Cure CandyI would like to see some western examples of Human Hummingbird this is different than the spinning feet version that is common in loony toons (that is a whole other trope that I have seen before) The trope does have a good amount of misuse too that is not it

Human Hummingbird is a really common thing with chibi style. I don't know if it's a Japanese thing, but I do associate it with the anime/manga art style. I think I've seen it in Western works, but the only one I can think of right now is Avatar: The Last Airbender , and since its art style was heavily inspired by anime, I don't think it counts.

Sylvester on Looney Tunes used to do it all the time. Same with Daffy Duck, and I'm positive I've seen Mickey do it at least once. It does make sense though. Anime borrows a lot of tropes from the golden age of animation.

Anime Tropes and moved some of the floatbox info to Japanese Media Tropes. We're almost done with the sorting, but there's still a lot of tropes that need TRS.
A Wizard boyWhich tropes still need TRS, and what can be done here?
Sandbox.Anime Tropes. There's six or so tropes to be sorted and around 20 that need or are in TRS.
I see the Awesomeness.Here they are:

Cure CandyPatient Childhood Love Interest: it is a kind of cultural fantasy trope, where a guy basically grows up with the girl and they become extremely close into the Like Brother and Sister trope.

Regarding Lightning Glare: For some reason, I am thinking of Asterix here, but I don't have the comics handy to check it out.
I see the Awesomeness.Raso seems to be the only one familiar with Patient Childhood Love Interest. Given the elaboration as a point of cultural
the flies will find youOne instance isn't enough to prove it's established as a trope in non-East Asian media. Thus I'd be inclined to call Lightning Glare Japanese Visual Media specific.

I see the Awesomeness.Visual Arts. Japanese Visual Arts Tropes. Edit: moved Patient Childhood Love Interest to Japanese Media Tropes. Others?

I see the Awesomeness.Eventually, we should finish this up.
A Wizard boyWhat are the other questions?
I see the Awesomeness.What indexes do these unsorted tropes belong on. We've got some discussion, but it's very little. I'm uncomfortable trying to hazard a guess with only two or three people.
A Wizard boySo, needs an index, essentially? There is a thread for that in Trope Talk.
What's the status on this?
A Wizard boyMostly dead, I think.
What still needs to be done before Anime Tropes is cut, which seems to be the plan?
