J-Novel Club's own Wikipedia article Up and Running

    Not sure if I'm crazy about calling it "original" though. Compromise with changing it to "Japanese".

    I didn't suggest "Japanese" because some of titles are simply English.

    You really think the Romaji column isn't necessary?

    Adding titles generated by not-so-well-defined rules doesn't really fit into the table containing some simple objective info. Also, most of them could be found if you hover over a link to title's wikipedia page. It would be the other thing if you could easily and reliably list them but that's clearly not the case.

    Yes, there's a lot of MT in the references. I know that. I have virtually no Japanese language knowledge.

    That's why you just keep the link's title in Japanese, like it's done on lots of other anime-related pages.

    The Japanese titles were cut and pasted from the JNC series pages, as reflected by the references.

    That's clearly not the case with Occultic;Nine and IS (I'm kinda ok with オカルティック because it would be a bit awkward to have the same title twice but there's no reason to leave IS out). 戦乙女 was fixed a while ago. Yume Nikki has a proper title on volume's and part's page and Kokoroco issue will be fixed after spamming relevant parties hard enough. (also how do you think it's ok to keep the wrong Japanese title because an English publisher listed it wrong)

    @_08 While there is still some room for debate (Japanese publisher's title vs English publisher's Japanese title) I would take "Japanese Title" as meaning "Title in Japan". Weigh grew exceptions, searching with the Japanese title on the JNC page did find the correct title. You're right, I did chop of the "IS" on Infinite Stratos. Now I'm wondering where I did get that title for Occultic;Nine from, because what's on the JNC page is clearly English.

    Before I go changing 40+ references, is there someplace I could see a reference using Japanese characters? It would solve my MT issue fairly quickly (by eliminating it).

    Grimgar's page, for instance.

    @_08 I see what you mean. I think I'll change them to something similar to that. If think I might have gotten the Japanese title for Occultic;Nine from the Wikipedia page.

    Again, thanks for the input.
