Welcome everyone! This is an update on the Robotics;Notes wiki project that Acura Max and I worked on.

Around the week of March 29, 2013, my teammate, Acura Max, and I finished the episode summaries. We both took turns on doing plot summaries: Acura Max did the even episodes while I did the odd episodes. The main struggle in the wiki project was time because we're busy with school, work, and family. On top of that, we had taken a task to encourage discussion of Robotics;Notes through the Robotics;Notes Discussion and informing the community any Robotics;Notes news.

For character wiki pages, we manage to fill the recurring characters.

That's alot of story arcs to do. I think we're going to have to make our story arc summaries little bit less detailed than the one Akiho has right now if we want to finish anytime soon. I think 2-3 paragraphs should be a good fit for each character. If any user wants a more detailed summary, they can consult the episode summaries.

Anyway, do you feel like doing another wiki project with me after all this is done? With the Robotics;Notes wiki almost done, I'm currently looking for something else to edit. If you do want to work with me once more, I'm up for anything.

I finished off all for all the main characters listed above. Don't forget that the show also gave origin stories for Subaru's father (his origin story was explained a little in episode 6. It turns out that I must have forgotten it) and Fujita. I'll do Fujita's origin story next.

@Acura_Max:

Yeah, I was going to condense Akiho's story arcs. These past 2 years, I noticed that the information the wiki editors and I write are the same but formatted differently. You probably heard from Aleasha and Buhssuht about how redundant to write both franchise and anime's character sections. It's the same thing with episode summaries and character's story arcs. The reason we do this because readers might prefer character or episode pages.

I'll update the character info. Thanks for the info. I'll finish Akiho's story arc and show what story arcs I have in the section below.

For story arcs, I was looking at what the anime plot look like. So far, I got the following:

  • Robo-One Tournament - covers episode 1-3
  • Building Gunvarrel - covers episodes 4-10 (this part was slow. I had no idea what to called it.)
  • Gunvarrel Controversy - covers episodes 11-14 (I know episode 12 focuses on Junna's story)
  • Airi and Kimijima Reports - covers episodes 15-17. I named it because episode 15 focuses on Airi's past while episode 16 somewhat focuses on Mizuka. Despite that Kaito already had some of the Kimijima reports from earlier episodes. He finds the last one in this arc.
  • Dreams and Robots - A bit corny, but that what I got from the last episodes. It focuses on Airi and Kaito who fight against the real enemy and put Gunvarrel's honor back.

What do you think ? I like to hear from some of the Robotics;Notes fans in the community. I only know you and Acura Max.

@takashichea: Since you've already started on Akiho's story arcs, I'll take care of Kaito's.

@Acura_Max:

Are you watching either Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet or The Severing Crime Edge? If you don't like any of those two, I can work on another anime series of your choice for this season. Robotics;Notes was a good call last semester.

I haven't made much progress on Akiho except trimming out the first paragraph. I realized the big paragraph was on episode 1. I'm aiming to spotlight Frau and your work on Kaito Yashio for this week's community spotlight. I can finish Frau and Akiho's story arcs. They're pretty similar since the anime mostly focuses on Kaito.
