Shouldn't the anime series have its own category? Or at least 'Category:Anime' or something similar. Moydow 01:23, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. It will definitely be needed when people start summarizing episodes as articles.Axiomist (talk) 01:29, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
I tried to organise these a bit; there is now Category:Anime for the series itself and any other Kirby-related anime that may exist or may be made in the future, and the sub-categories Category:Kirby: Right Back at Ya! episodes and Category:Kirby: Right Back at Ya! characters for episode & character articles pertaining to this show, respectively; the latter is also a sub-category of Category:Characters. Anime-exclusive characters should perhaps be left out of the main Characters category so the main part of that can serve as a list of game characters; not 100% sure about that yet though, would be grateful for opinions.--Vellidragon 14:07, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Can't we use the Japanese names for the articles? I'm just not used to the dub names, like, AT ALL. It'll be easier for me to update the episode articles if I can use the Japanese names and plot, since the dub changes a LOT of things. Fairy Red 03:35, 7 April 2011 (CDT)

As this is an English-language wiki, official English names shall be used wherever available (not least because the majority of the "Japanese names" used on certain other sites originate from a fansub as opposed to official romanisations/translations). I am aware the dub changes a lot of things, but the wiki, not being a Japanese website, is based on the official overseas releases of Kirby media (if they exist), and if the company responsible for making the dub decided to make those changes, then we can't just pretend they did not. I was thinking we could have a section on each episode article detailing the more notable differences between the original and dub versions, though; that could be interesting. (If you are (or anyone else is) going to make such a section though, be careful not to rely on fan translations and speculation too much.)--Vellidragon 10:35, 7 April 2011 (CDT)
One could add both the official Japanese names and the official dub translations, if they are both available. It would help anyone looking for the Japanese-names, but speak primarily English. Tacopill 19:21, 15 April 2011 (CDT).
Well, that's what we have Template:Names for. The articles will still be located at the official English names, however, and those are to be used when mentioning the subjects in an article, though the Japanese names can function as redirects.--Vellidragon 21:39, 15 April 2011 (CDT)
