Hoshikawa Seira - Switch this name to the correct order since we go by First Name to Last Name for characters on this site. (Seira Hoshikawa) Also do the same with the following...

Tsukuyomi Luna - Switch to Luna Tsukuyomi

Shirokane Ginka - Switch to Ginka Shirokane

Meltina Melvis - Switch to Melvis Meltina

According to this, should we also change:

Roronoa Zoro to Zoro Roronoa

Monkey D. Luffy to Luffy D. Monkey

Nico Robin to Robin Nico

@bigz007:

I know the names are first and last, but for these characters, it's weird. I know is in charge of the One Piece characters. I look these names and Viz Media has them named this way.

@takashichea:

I know the way it is right now sounds a lot better, but if we have a rule for correct order of names, shouldn't we apply it for all of them.

Robin NICO

Zoro Roronoa

@bigz007: @takashichea:

The rule is to use the names used in the official English version. Usually English versions switch the surname with the forename, but that's not always the case.

VIZ uses the name Monkey D. Luffy, so that's what we use, it's as simple as that :)

@Daniel_Newton: Okay, to tell you the truth, I don't want to change it either. I just wanted to point it out and hear what the community have to say about it...

@Daniel_Newton: @bigz007:

I better go fix Zoro's name. I just flipped his name before class.

@takashichea: @bigz007: We really shouldn't flip the One Piece names since Viz officially had theirs in First Name, Last Name order. We always had that order on the site normally, which was why I asked for the Day Break Illusion Girls' names to be flipped.

  • Irie shoichi
  • Hepburn iris
  • Byakuran jesso
  • Last name of those characters should be capitalized...

    Yamamoto tsuyoshi should be Tsuyoshi Yamamoto.

    EDIT: btw, I found Makoto Yamamoto and Makoto Yamamoto to be two exactly the same pages, I can't tell which one is the original.

    @bigz007:

    Got it.

    For the Makoto Yamamoto dupe, we go for the most complete page and whether it has been added to the anime or manga page and linked with a VA.

    @takashichea: It's odd that the same person added both pages.

    It happens. I just don't know why they didn't request the page to be deleted.
