Manga Plus licenses in the infoboxEdit

So, for the series that are only published in English via Manga Plus (Diamond in the Rough (manga), Excuse Me Dentist, It's Touching Me!, Hokkaido Gals Are Super Adorable!, Marriagetoxin, Ron Kamonohashi, Soloist in a Cage, Takopi's Original Sin, Tis Time for Torture, Princess, and Oshi no Ko), I notice that none of them display Manga Plus as an English licensor, which is different than every other official English publisher; even digital only publishers like Comikey are listed in the infobox. So, for the series that Manga Plus is the only official English publisher, should we add them to the infobox, and if so, how? Link20XX (talk) 22:52, 27 June 2022 (UTC)

Since Manga Plus is owned by Shueisha, I suppose that we could list Shueisha as the English publisher if X series is published in English on the platform, and we could list Manga Plus as the English magazine, just like series that have Weekly Shonen Jump as the English magazine. I don't know, however, if in case that series like Oshi no Ko or Takopi's Original Sin eventually be acquired by publishers like Viz Media or Seven Seas Entertainment, Shueisha (and Manga Plus) should be removed from the infobox as English licensor or kept as well. Xexerss (talk) 23:22, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
Despite that it's very likely that many of them will eventually be acquired by another publisher (i.e. Viz Media), it is still a violation of WP:CRYSTAL to assume that they will be acquired, so that shouldn't prevent Manga Plus from being in the infobox. As for removing it when other publishers acquire it, I would say that makes sense since almost every series in Weekly Shōnen Jump is published by both Viz Media and Manga Plus, yet they only lists the former in the infobox. Anyway, your method of putting Shueisha as the English publisher and Manga Plus as the magazine does make sense and I have no opposition to that idea for the above titles. Link20XX (talk) 01:17, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
@Link20XX Correct me if I'm wrong, but is Manga Plus a webcomic like Comic Fuz (since they are both publishing online and through an app and are not available in print)? I suggested at Template talk:Infobox animanga#Suggesting a parameter for webcomics to include a parameter for webcomics where we can place the likes of Manga Plus and Comic Fuz instead on the "magazine" parameter (in your case, an addition of "English webcomic" parameter). What do you think? Centcom08 (talk) 01:29, 28 June 2022 (UTC)
I don't know if that is necessary; many of these big manga websites are getting to the point where they could be considered an online magazine. Link20XX (talk) 02:22, 28 June 2022 (UTC)

Music articleEdit

After finding that the film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 (film) had too much commentary about its main theme songs I created Ichizu/Sakayume. However, there appears to be a typo and I can't fix. Anybody who could fix this? Thanks. Tintor2 (talk) 18:21, 5 July 2022 (UTC)

What typo are you talking about? Sarcataclysmal (talk) 11:34, 8 July 2022 (UTC)

@Sarcataclysmal: Nevermind. I meant the title after an accident. I went to technical moves from requested moves and now it is correctly titled like the actual CD is.Tintor2 (talk) 19:01, 8 July 2022 (UTC)

Episode lists and TOOSOONEdit

So, I noticed a user just created List of Trigun Stampede episodes, even though the series has yet to air a single episode and does not plan to for at least 6 months. I think this certainly constitutes WP:TOOSOON, especially since List of Trigun episodes already exists. While there is no policy as to when to create an episode list split, I've seen 24 episodes (or 2 cours) been used as a precedent at AfD. Link20XX (talk) 01:57, 7 July 2022 (UTC)

Agree. We should wait until the series has some episodes effectively aired before creating an entire article. Currently, we just know that it will premiere in 2023, so yeah, this is too hasty. Xexerss (talk) 02:44, 7 July 2022 (UTC)
Too soon for an article for sure. Sarcataclysmal (talk) 11:31, 8 July 2022 (UTC)
Yeah. Still I wonder what's the correct choice for title. Anime Expo had some commentaries about the making of this anime to the point there might be room for a production section.Tintor2 (talk) 22:50, 8 July 2022 (UTC)
I tend to notice this issue when it comes to anime, but not other animated series, with people creating lists of episodes even when it is less than 24. Link20XX, I have to differ when it comes to "no policy as to when to create an episode list split" as I'd argue that MOS:TVSPLIT is an effective policy, but doesn't give an exact number except to say that if an episode list is less than 15 episodes, it can't be split, but if it is more than that, it should be split, from what I understand. Article splitting (television) may also give some guidance on this as well, even though that is only an essay.--Historyday01 (talk) 00:20, 9 July 2022 (UTC)

Template talk:Infobox animanga#"Creator" parameter is not really applicableEdit

The "created by" parameter in Template:Infobox animanga is frequently not used due to its redundancy in many contexts in which the template is employed, and doesn't really apply to the context of an anime series most of the time as most anime do not have a showrunner in the same sense that television produced in the US and UK often does. I've created a talk page discussion at the above link detailing the problem with this term, more appropriate and oft-used terms in English-translated credits of anime series, and proposals for revised data fields in this template based on said terms. Input on this discussion would be appreciated. Joyce-stick (talk) 07:35, 11 July 2022 (UTC)

Talk:Crunchyroll#Fixing the Crunchyroll/Funimation article situationEdit

  Courtesy link: Talk:Crunchyroll#Fixing the Crunchyroll/Funimation article situation
The Crunchyroll article has been seen to currently lack focus, as it has been edited to inappropriately conflate Crunchyroll (the streaming service), Crunchyroll, LLC (formerly Funimation), and Crunchyroll, Inc (LLC's subsidiary, currently operating the streaming service). A discussion is taking place at the above link; more participation for a more thorough consensus would be ideal. Joyce-stick (talk) 18:49, 13 July 2022 (UTC)
