This is the place to report duplicate persons. You must indicate:
1) which one is the real name?
2) is this a alias or a mistake?

previous duplicate person reports are here

Please delete:

Hiroaki SATOU (my bad)
Hiroaki SATO (correct)

Also would someone be able to check the following two, I don't know any Japanese but I have a feeling these may be the same people.

Both credited as Character Design for UY Movie #5:
Setsuko SHIBUICHI (has more credits, not on the DVD)
Setsuko SHIBUNNOICHI (straight off the DVD)

Similar time frame, similar tasks:
Yoshiyuki ICHIKAWA
Yoshiyuki ISHIKAWA

I realize they may be different people, but I just wanted to bring them up.

Done.

Her name should be Setsuko SHIBUICHI (四分一 節子; しぶいち せつこ), so please remove your submission for Setsuko SHIBUNNOICHI (this last name looks very suspicious in the first sight) as the Character Design of Urusei Yatsura: The Final Chapter (movie), thus I can merge #10818 into #8408 completely. Very rare family name; don't know whether it's a stage name or a real name.

Personally I'd like to thank you for mentioning her name. Now I'm really looking forward to her direction work, Momoko (もも子). A story about a handicapped girl and her healthy fraternal twin brother, this could be more a tearjerker than Grave of the Fireflies. Crying or Very sad

I really have no idea, because both names are legitimate (eliminating possible misspellings), and minor staff info are hard to find even in kanji, not mention in romaji. However, they *MIGHT* be the same person, for both Crystal Triangle (in which Yoshiyuki ISHIKAWA staffed) and Urusei Yatsura: The Final Chapter (in which Yoshiyuki ICHIKAWA staffed) are produced by Tatsunoko Productions. Looks like the only way is to post the question on their BBS.... Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop

Done, I thought it was a bit strange myself...

Also is there such a sound as "si"...I can't recall hearing or seeing one. It's always "shi".

And if there isn't, can you rename this or do I have to re-submit it?

It is another romanization method (actually, THE standard method), called Kunrei-shiki (訓令式), taught in Japanese elementary schools. For foreigners like us, modified Hepburn is most commonly used, so し/シ can be spelled as "shi" (Hepburn) or "si" (Kunrei-shiki). Most entries in ANN Encyclopedia use Hepburn, especially modified Hepburn ("wapuro romaji," romanization for word processors) to reduce the use of special letters like ô or ō.

I'm afraid that I don't have the authority to modify entry titles directly. Personally, I'd suggest you resubmit it, which is easiest for it's the only staff position he has. As far as I can tell, all assistants listed in Ai Yori Aoshi manga are romanized with Kunrei-shiki, as in Asahi Katuomaki, Keizou Isikawa, and Mitukage Syoutengai (<- another strange last name. Shopping arcade?!).

I actively and intensely dislike Kunrei-shiki (or shouldn't that be Kunrei-siki? Laughing ). It is completely counterintuitive (and counterproductive) to have a transliteration system that doesn't transliterate the actual sounds. The sound of し/シ is "shi", not "si". So the transliteration should be "shi", too.

The day I give up the Hepburn system in favour of Kunrei-shiki is the day
...pigs fly,
...the temperature in Hell drops below zero degrees centigrade,
...and they stuff me in my grave.

FYI,

Here's a nice table that compares the various romaji methods.

http://www.wordiq.com/​definition/​Romaji#​Chart_of_romanizatio​ns

It would be helpful if the ANN encyclopedia standardized on one type and gave instructions on the submission pages on what to use. Wikipedia has a good example:

http://en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Wikipedia:​Manual_of_Style_for_​Japan-​related_articles

Just a suggestion.

Renaming should really be easier, but I guess re-submitting is probably faster...

So then it should be...

Katsuomaki
Ishikawa
Mitsukage Shoutengai
Satoshi

...right?

Tokyopop just has to be different, huh?

Hello,

dormcat asked me to give more help in vetting these people I reported as probable duplicates. I divided the names into groups. (There are two groups of people in the world, those that divide things into groups and those that don’t.) I couldn’t check the sources given for them, so I just checked the spelling.

Please take a look and post a reply if you know anything that can help clear these up. Thank you in advance for all the help you will give me.

Different People
EmperorBrandon reported that these are indeed two different people. Thank you.
