Hey just wanted to thank you for being the voice of reason at the AfD for Susuwatari. While I'm sure most of the editors are going off the first keep vote, some of the arguments presented have been simply confounding. I quickly gave up since it didn't look like anyone was going to change their minds, but it's reassuring to know that there are editors trying to keep the arguments at AfD based on evidence/policy and actually evaluating the sources. Opencooper (talk) 00:44, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

No need to thank me, I tend to take up against badly made points in AFD regardless of my views on the subject itself. In this case I don't have an opinion either way but even if was voting Keep i'd want the arguments to be made properly. Although AFD has been mostly sensible lately for the most part so it was only a matter of time I guess.SephyTheThird (talk) 01:42, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
I can respect that. I think the tone of AfD varies depending on the territory: controversial subjects will always be heated, but pop-culture can also be dear to people, and Ghibli films are often the gateway anime for Westerners. Anyway I guess we just gotta keep at it when it's needed. Opencooper (talk) 03:09, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

I understand that page of Megumi Hayashibara profile was never do adding a picture again. Yohann Martin Navarro (talk) 12:41, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Before removing the websites...Edit

Just check the articles if they have the most recent website present. The ones without articles you might want to move the reference over to the magazine name. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 22:27, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

While you are souring the demographics I am going to update all of the "official website" links on the separate magazine articles. When im done the references for those with articles can be removed from the manga magazine list. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 22:32, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
I'm done for the night but I'll start using MADB to source the dates tomorrow.SephyTheThird (talk) 00:13, 24 July 2016 (UTC)


I am okay with expanding the date values but are you going to include month/day/year or month/year? The table is sortable, so if more info is added it is more work to make sure the dates are in order. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 00:13, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

I've just added {{dts|}} to the dates I had added so far. Problem solved. As the list develops it should come together.SephyTheThird (talk) 00:22, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
Okay, sounds good. =) - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 00:23, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Updates on Sk8erPrinceEdit

So it's been a few weeks since the last discussion on him. I notice that he's back to nominating AfDs this time, and while some of them appear to raise legitimate concerns, some of the comments in this nomination, particularly his reply to Athomeinkobe seem a bit worrying. Now what? Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 12:40, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Actually the responses are to me after my rebuttal. Frankly it's clear that they have no clue and still believe they are above everyone else opinion. My responses have been quite damming in my opinion but he just twists and turns everything. Apparently I don't know how AFD works whilst he is clearly demanding the article be deleted because he doesn't like it. It's not about the article and could be argued it never was. It's about getting his own way. That AFD needs closing, the longer it remains open the longer it validates his decision to reopen it. It's a bad faith nomination and he is proving it with every post. I still believe it warrants a speedy close as bad faith, gaming the system and ignoring the completed process (and as I said in the AFD, it should be a valid speedy. No new means for deletion have been brought forward, only their determination to see it gone.It's become a matter of principle and respect of process. It's not for me to tell the admins what they should do but he doesn't appear to have learnt, so something should be done. unfortunately I tend to react to ignorant people who demand things but I've managed to keep it relatively civil. Theres really nothing more for me to add so I'm not planning to. SephyTheThird (talk) 12:51, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
It hurts for me to say this but I think he needs to be brought to ANI again. Last time he was given one last chance to reform, and I'm very sad to say it seems he hasn't really changed much since then. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 12:55, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
I'm sure you'll understand that I'm not prepared to get involved in it for both myself and the debate itself. I think it's clear enough from the AFD and I'm pushing it on AGF already.SephyTheThird (talk) 12:57, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
Should I raise it again or WT:ANIME? Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 13:01, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
Thats up to you.SephyTheThird (talk) 13:10, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
I think it's best to let him be at the moment. If it escalates, I'll notify other users and see what needs to be done. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 13:23, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Dead citesEdit

Hey just a note that we don't remove citations solely because the link is dead. For example on Battle Royale (manga) I was able to find an archive for one of the links and by just removing the cited sentence the rest of the section didn't make any sense. I can understand removing the information if it was a link to an unreliable source (like the forum post), or the information itself was sketchy, but in this case it's just saying the manga was rewritten (which likely can be cited with an alternate source) and was from Newsrama. Also, please make an effort to find an archived version of the source from or, or a websearch first. You might find Wikipedia:Link rot helpful. Happy editing. Opencooper (talk) 20:31, 1 November 2016 (UTC)


  There is currently a discussion at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents regarding an issue with which you may have been involved. Thank you.

This is in regards to Sk8erPrince, seeing I mentioned your edit summaries comment if you would like here: Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#User:Sk8erPrince not using edit summaries when nominating articles for deletion Knowledgekid87 (talk) 15:03, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Big West AdvertisingEdit

I noticed your comment on the de-prod of Big West Advertising and I'm interested to learn more. Your note, "I believe there is sufficient scope for improvement," intrigues me as I wasn't questioning that the article could be improved upon or given more depth, but that there isn't enough notability for it to exist in the first place per the original prod. Every article has potential to be expanded upon, but that doesn't mean that there should be an article on it in the first place. As this is not my subject of expertise, I'd love to hear more about Big West Advertising as there are very few (English) results on Google, which makes WP:GNG a concern of mine. GauchoDude (talk) 20:45, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

I can totally see why you prodded the article given it's state at the time. I was just as surprised it was on my watch list than anything, I assume I added it years ago on my previous account. The problem with this article is that it does need some knowledge of the subject area to start from as the information is going to be in specialist sources. I've done some initial searching and have some more online sources to check out as well as at least one book source. Ultimately the main point for a wider notability is going to be the legal cases but I believe this should be enough to solve the wider issue.SephyTheThird (talk) 21:23, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Moving forward, I'd appreciate if you would please Template:Reply to me so I know when you've responded. With that said, I'll reserve further judgement and let you build out the article with the sourcing that's available to you. With a bit more prodding, I've found this story detailing a bit about the legal case. I'm eager to see what you're able to find as I fear it might not pass WP:EVENT if "... the main point for a wider notability is going to be the legal cases." Looking forward to what you're able to contribute here, good luck! GauchoDude (talk) 22:18, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Pokémon Origins-Brock VAEdit

Question: What website is most likely to have that info. Johnny Yong Bosch is his VA, you can even hear him if you watch. There's just no sources that state so that I can find. It's really annoying because on one hand, you want to keep his credits accurate, but on the other, there's little to no info about it. Any help with this is appreciated. ThanksDohvahkiin (talk) 22:58, 17 December 2016 (UTC)

I found this on his Facebook page. It lists characters he voiced over the years. Brock is there listed as Takeshi. Is this acceptable? There's not really much else to go on other than this.Dohvahkiin (talk) 23:15, 17 December 2016 (UTC)
Being his own Facebook, a direct mention should be fine (WP:SELFSOURCE). I'm not convinced the image is suitable due to it's quality and it's use of the Japanese name but I'm not inclined to remove it. Continue looking for a better source but if someone else removes the Facebook source then you should assume it's not suitable. Behind The Vocie Actors doesn't have a checkmark on the role so its not verified and can't be used. ANN's main content (i.e. news, reviews, columns) may contain something but avoid the encyclopaedia and forums.SephyTheThird (talk) 23:37, 17 December 2016 (UTC)


Will you be consistent and delete other interpretation of char.names? Alex Spade (talk) 22:35, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Yes, for the same reason. To be honest I hadn't checked the rest of the article yet as it's only on my watchlist as I removed two large sections that were also Original research.SephyTheThird (talk) 22:38, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
Now done.SephyTheThird (talk) 22:42, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

History of animeEdit

Hi! I have noticed that there are many wrong information on History of anime wiki project. I'm planning on removing them because it doesn't have any reliable sources. For example: "The Real Robot genre (including the Gundam and Macross franchises), which had declined during the 1990s, was revived in 2002 with the success of shows such as Mobile Suit Gundam SEED (2002), Eureka Seven (2005), Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (2006), Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (2007), and Macross Frontier (2008)." This is just so wrong. The mecha genre was never dead thanks to Evangelion. Code geass and Eureka 7 DID NOT revive anything. Also, the magical girl shows are missing. Utena, cardcaptor sakura, nanoha and especially madoka magica are missing. Diogatari (talk) 13:48, 30 December 2016 (UTC)


Hello, regarding the summary of editions that I did I had to hide it because I do not see sources that the actors of voices have participated in the Japanese dubbing in each series and films in the American continent and maybe if we make a difference in the Japanese Wikipedia articles to see if you think about the references,regards.
