Since December onward is allegedly going to be release after release after release for our little fandom, I am going to be pushing out a few additional changes on top of what we're already adding/linking/editing.
First up, Pere Noel codenames. Due to the Gift novel, we have now learned every member's codename and it has helped us realize we completely misinterpreted Pierrot's song PV with the Roman numerals. As a result, we will be removing the Roman numerals from their codenames.
Based on how The Muzzle of Nemesis PV applies one of the codenames in English, we'll be following suit on this format. We will spell out the cardinal number (First, Second, Third, etc.) followed by the codename (Santa Claus, Dealer, Sleep Princess, etc.).
This will apply to all instances the full codenames are used. That means Five the Pierrot and its related articles will be renamed "Fifth Pierrot".
Next up, galleries. First, a small overhaul on our gallery tabs. These will be the new tabs used for non-media articles:
- Concept Art
The major change is the separation of Merchandise from our Miscellaneous tab. The reasoning? It helps separate the clutter of all the different products a character/series creates vs the miscellaneous illustrations or other portrayals.
Keep in mind, any physical product sold separately from the light novels counts as merchandise (ie, playing cards, figurines, music boxes, etc.) and does not count additional manuals, bookmarks, or similar products that are given as a part of the light novel.
The second big change is that the names for many tabs have been shortened. This has been done to conserve space while leaving room for new tabs in the future. These tabs still serve their same function so don't overthink them.
In terms of organization, the Songs tab will have one big change. To simplify the organization and emphasize the progression in art quality and style, Song illustrations will be ordered by release date of the individual song, like with Books and Manga.
Finally, these major changes are going to be in regards to The Lunacy of Duke Venomania manga. As mentioned previously, there will have to be some (arguably) major changes to article being done in light of some rather huge mistranslations of the text. While the retranslation isn't finished and released yet, we'll be fixing some of the major errors.
- Sateriasis and I.R. enter a cave to retrieve a vessel of sin, only to discover it's only a magic tool. Dissatisfied, Venomania tosses the item and I.R. returns it to it's resting place, cursing her subordinate (Tette Cetera) for the false lead.
- Priema Soap's abduction is mentioned in passing as the 10th woman to go missing. She is referred to as a super rich woman, and the madam of the Soap family.
- Rajih was severely injured by the duke during their battle; he lost consciousness due to the trauma and minor blood loss (manga script clarification).
- While preparing to return to Lasaland, Venomania mentions he plans to love his women fully once he returns. I.R. reminds him of Tette Cetera, saying she should receive her reward (retribution) for giving them that false info. He agrees and says she too will join in his love.
Other changes will come and go as we acquire more specific translations.
That should be enough to keep us all busy. Over and out.
