Edit War for Love Live Five Man Band Anime
I noticed Frankie 3 added Five-Man Band to Love Live! Superstar!! and adjusted the text to fit a more probably sequence as The Big Girl looked shoe-horned and The Chick is a disambiguated trope.
Without an edit reason, they re-added the tropes again with some altered text, no responses back yet. You can see the edits here.
Looking at their edit history, they also added Five-Man Band to another Love Live character page over here, though this one seems incorrect as well since the series gradually builds to a group of 9, there's never even a point where the group has only 5 members. I didn't remove it here yet, but figured doing so might be met with an attempt to paste it back in.
I haven't gotten a response yet from the notifiers I've sent to them.Edited by YourIdeas
Time since publication Anime
How much time must a manga or anime have been published/broadcasted for before it is expected to get its own page?Edited by Jampolo
Arranging Gundam X's episodes into arcs? Anime
I'm noticed that After War Gundam X's episodes can be arranged into compact arcs, and I've noticed that the recap page for Season 2 of Gargoyles is arranged into arcs (albeit longer ones).
Would it be too disruptive if I arranged Gundam X's episodes into arcs with subheadings?Edited by DancouMaryuu
Weblinks to facebook and image hosting websites Anime
While reading the Nightmare Fuel page of Kimetsu no Yaiba, I encountered an entry in the "Red Light District Arc" (third bullet point, second sub-bullet) which contains two weblinks: one to a facebook page, and one to what I guess is an image hosting website (well, your guess is as good as mine regarding a website called "sportshub" being that kind of website). Both links are used to show screens of what the character looks like in the anime.
From Weblinks Are Not Examples, it seems it is frowned upon to use links like that. Moreover, the entry itself is written well enough to not necessitate those images. Thus I'm contacting tropers to ask if I should remove these links or leave them as is. I know there is a tolerance for some weblinks (namely when linking to songs - and even then, broken You Tube links happen quite often), but I'm not quite sure this qualify.
EDIT: There is another instance of this kind of link a little further actually, under the "Chapter 92-94/S 2 E 10:" bullet point of the same folder.Edited by NonoRobot
Urusei Yatsura: Dirty Old Monk? Anime
In Urusei Yatsura, one of the antagonistic characters is an itinerant Buddhist monk named Sakuranbo (who prefers to go by Cherry because the characters of his name can mean either "Cherry Fruit" or "Deranged Priest"), whose primary source of comedy is that he's a shameless mooch who regularly tries to blackmail food from people in need of his services or outright steals food from people. Obviously, this is pretty unfitting behavior for a priest, especially paired with Cherry's bungling efforts at "saving" people (like deliberately pushing Ataru off a bridge and under a falling power line), but is there a trope for this kind of "fallen priest"? My first thought was Nun Too Holy, as that trope's name suggests, to me, a catch-all for "non-evil but clearly improperly behaving clergy". But that's specifically for female clergy, with the male counterparty being Dirty Old Monk, and both are focused on lustful or sex-focused "holy" characters, and Cherry's failing is gluttony rather than lust (outside of that episode in the 1981 anime that implies he's a furry). Is there an appropriate trope here to cover Cherry's status as a holy man who really doesn't act very holy?
About creating an article Anime
So I would like to create an article on an Anime series like Inukai San, but it got deleted, and so I would like to know how to make a page successful.
Like how to prevent my article from getting deleted.Edited by GeorgePie
Since Bare Your Midriff is now a disambig, I tried to adding a fitting trope to the Pretty Cure regarding characters that show their midriffs. I tried to add Bare Midriffs Are Feminine (which I think it might be a fitting trope that fit for characters who showed their midriff) but Mad About Love 97 states that it did not fit.Edited by TheBlitzerz97
Big Bad of Suzume Anime
I am having trouble determining whether or not the Wyrm is a Generic Doomsday Villain. Anybody who has seen the movie that can help me determine this factor?
The pokemon folder removed from Surprisingly realistic outcome. Anime
Surprisingly Realistic Outcome has gone through a number of changes to both clarify what it's about and to remove natter and zero context examples from the page. There used to be a folder for Pokemon but it appears it was deleted. When did this happen? There were enough examples to at least have the examples moved to either the video game or anime & manga folder...Edited by NKgamer
Renaming "Ronin Warriors" to "Samurai Troopers" Anime
I would like to propose that the page for the anime "Ronin Warriors" and all entries relating to it to the original title of "Samurai Troopers", along with associated character names. Simple reason being that as of the recent Blu-Ray release, the official translation of the title is "Legendary Armory Samurai Troopers", and that outside of franchise entries carrying the title specifically, "Saint Seiya" is not referred to as "Knights of the Zodiac".
Page for Kyojin no Hoshi? Anime
Of the Ikki Kajiwara works, only two of them have pages; Tomorrow's Joe and Tiger Mask. Should we create a page for his famous baseball manga, Kyojin no Hoshi? There's a tropepedia page for it, which begs the question of how much changing is required to make a page for it here.
Flaming in the comments sectionn. Anime
Superchan 6464 is insulting the reviewer for his taste in media. He likely also flagged the review even though it's fine.
Subverted Trope as a trope example Anime
- Subverted Trope: In "Camping Alone", Sakura goes to the grocers and has to choose between deer meat and bears' paws. She Googles how to prepare bears' paws, and the show starts one of its folksy interludes where the narrator explains some off-beat dish to the audience. When she realises it takes nine hours and requires meticulously plucking every single hair off the paw, the quaint soundtrack warps into a dissonant wail and the narrator's voice speeds up until he squeaks like a chipmunk. It cuts to Sakura just asking for deer meat.
Subverted Trope isn't supposed to be used as a trope example. Are there any tropes around that fit this text or is it okay to just remove?
Code Geass edit war Anime
A while back, Reddishguy 1 added this entry to the YMMV page for Code Geass under Unintentionally Unsympathetic:
- Britannians like Cornelia and Jeremiah who are shown to be especially racist towards the Japanese are implied to have had their racism prompted by Lelouch and Nunnally's disappearance in Japan (and the belief they were lynched by the Japanese at some point during Britannia's invasion), and are made out to be somewhat sympathetic because of it. The issue here being that, even if Lelouch and Nunnally were actually killed by Japanese people, it would still be wrong to generalize the entire population of Japan based on that, much less murder and oppress countless men, women and children for it.
The entry was recently deleted by Rebel Falcon with an edit reason explaining why it didn't fit, but Reddishguy 1 added it back anyway saying he didn't accept that reasoning.Edited by Javertshark13
Fanfiction Recommendations 2023 How To? Anime
I wish to add a recommendation to the My Hero Academia Crossover Fics page. I am aware that I'm supposed to use a certain template for it, that's not the problem. The problem is I don't know where to ADD/PUT the template. It isn't like there's a submit or add recommendation button. And if there is I can't find it. I'm kinda new here, thought it'd be easier to figure out.
Potential Edit War? Anime
On the In the Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki funny page, there was this initial entry under the Episode 9 folder:
"* Tsubaki was so traumatized the last time she heard the word "ding-a-ling", that when Rindou explains that snakes are somewhat like a man's privates, Tsubaki freezes up in shock, looks at the audience, and utters a deflated "Huh?" in response."
On April 26th, this troper under the name Malbicho makes these two edits in rather poor quality. I tried to mend this two days later, only for them to come back on May 3rd to undo it and make another edit.
From the looks of it, they appear to only have been here for a minimum of two months. They've also gone ahead to delete and/or poorly edit other pages during that time - all with no justified nor stated reason.Edited by Henshin4Life
