Shouldn't this article be about the anime instead of the manga? This is an animation wiki, after all.
Though, one question.
I understand the 'no spoiler' rule, but
how should I do the character descriptions?
Actually, I'm pretty sure we do have some wiggle room for comics. I know there's an article on 4-koma for instance (I made it). It's pretty much unavoidable given the vast number of comics that become cartoons and how arguably the two are linked in the formation of the art of animation.
If that issue is essential to understanding the basics of the story, then I'd say that it has a place in the plot synopsis or elsewhere as necessary. Note the "if," though.
I think it's okay to acknowledge comics, just as long we're focusing on animation and not on comic books. So yes, make it about the anime, though certainly mention its origins. Styles and types like 4-Koma are fine I think, it's part of understanding the medium and where certain cartoons come from.
The way I currently see it, comics are valid as far as how they tie into animation. One such example- shows like One Piece are near direct comic adaptations, so the comic is justified in being mentioned.
Where I'd draw the line currently is at comics they really have no real connection to any animated projects. However, I'd weigh in that another TZ site is CD!, which focuses on comic-based creations. Given that, it'd seem like comics aren't completely out of scope for the site.
Yes, that is pretty much my position. I'm basically looking to avoid having one article for, say, Batman in animation, and another for Batman in comics, or separate articles for One Piece the anime and One Piece the comic.
Granted. This is probably something we'll ask Harley about down the line.
It is justifiable to mention such things if they are considered the source material, but when I made my remark, the article only mentioned the manga and didn’t mention the anime at all.
Yeah, and in addition to CD!, there's also the Comic Book Culture forum, so I don't think articles on comics would be that out of place.
