Since there's a lot of episodes, I'm planning to do a complete reorganization the recaps if there are no objections. This time, we're going to base it on story arcs and format them accordingly for each page.

I prefer to keep this episode-based. Just because something has a lot of episodes does not mean a recap is inconceivable, look at https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/DoctorWho or https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/TheBigBangTheory or https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/TheSimpsons or https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/Pokemon (those may have redlinks, but someone can always make them). Really, keep the single episode format, it was fine and I actually think the arc format is usually unhelpful (I find it too general), like with Dragon Ball recaps.

Hmm, when I brought that up in this discussion, we thought that the arc format would be a bit easier regardless of any translation issues and also to prevent animosity in using the different episode title translations. You may wish to discuss it there if you are interested.

I clicked on the link pertaining to that discussion, but it wouldn't lead anywhere. And last night, I was in the process of creating pages to list tropes for every episode.

And this might be a silly question, but would the manga chapters need their own recap pages?

I think thereís a bug to the links in this discussion thread. Iíll PM the actual link to you.

Oh, I had already found the discussion from the link you sent me when you first messaged me.

But I asked said earlier, I was in the process of creating pages to list tropes for every episode. And are the previous translations for the episode titles really no longer valid?

According to the ATT discussions, wiki policy is to use the most recent translations (Look up "translations" there). Hope this helps.

Oh, got it!

I remember what Aegis P said about not catering to the whiners and using the latest translations regardless of anyone's personal opinion. When I changed the titles back to original ones, I thought I was doing the right thing, but looking back, I feel kind of silly for going against wiki to create a "middle ground". Do you think we could have episode based recap pages again and keep to policy by having the VIZ translated titles?

Hmm, maybe we can ask on the forums...?
