Shouldn't it be more character pages?

I am in agreement. The question though is how do we divide the characters?

Given the ever-growing character cast of the series (and the more to come), I suggest that the pages would be probably distributed in Main Cast (Yorozuya and Shinsengumi), Allies, Antagonists, and Others (Four Emperors of Kabukichou, Residents of Kabukichou, Others).

A good start, though I'd rather group them together by groups and less by roles they fill.

Yorozuya

Shinsengumi

Bakufu (Tokugawa clan, Mimawarigumi, maybe also Tendoshu and Naraku?)

Kabukicho (Residents and Four Devas. Can potentially be split)

Antagonists (Can potentially be split into Kiheitai and Harusame, while some of the other antagonists can be assigned to other pages)

Others (Katsura's faction, Kaientai, Yagyu clan, Yoshiwara, Oniwabanshu, etc.)

In regards to Others in particular, it's possible that Yoshiwara and the Yagyu clan could get their own pages as well, provided we place Jiraia and Hosen in under Yoshiwara (If we split the Antagonists page into Kiheitai and Harusame) and include the Yagyu clan's top students.

That's the idea, too.

It could also work like that. It's clear, that the series has a LOT of minor almost extra characters, too... and knowing how Sorachi is, he could bring them back later, and introduce a whole mass of other characters too (the last few arcs we saw the introduction of other villains and stuff like that).

And also, it depends if the characters are separated in groups (I think you were referring to files?)

In the case of Yoshiwara and the Yagyu clan, it really depends because, from Yoshiwara, we know mostly about Tsukuyo, Seita and Hinowa (and Suzuran). From the Yagyu, besides Kyuubei and Tojo having appearing more frequently in the series, the others 'top' members have been left in the dark.

Groups, files, whichever definition works best... '^^

The Yagyu getting their own page kinda is dependant on adding its other members and their Four devas, which we don't know a whole lot about, because they haven't really had much of a role outside of the Yagyu arc. Apart from Tojo and Kyuubei, the member we probably know the most about is Kyuubei's grandfather Binbokusai.

Similarly, Yoshiwara getting its own page is dependant on Hosen and Jiraia being added there, provided we split the Antagonists page into Kiheitai and Harusame, which I'm pretty much in favor for (Though the Harusame will also need additions like Daraku, Admiral Aho- Abo, Ungyo, etc.). Ito could be assigned to the Shinsengumi page, Sadasada and Oboro to the Bakufu, while Kintoki could be assigned to Kabukicho. That just leaves Pirako...

Pirako giving being the daughter of one of the 4 Devas and helped another of them as well, could be thrown in its entry, but then again... spoilers of the arc, I suppose.

I'd propose just somewhere in the Others page.

So... yeah... should we go with my setup, with Kiheitai and Harusame instead of Antagonists? Yagyu and Yoshiwara could start out as folders under Others unless they grow bigger.

I think this is for the better. Yes, let's do this.

Done. Just needs to be refined now.

Do you think we should add Tetsuko Murata? or Soyohime?
