The anime 砂なぼうず (Sunabouzu) appears twice, both with wrong titles:

Um, the official kanji title should be 砂ぼうず.

As for the romanization,

Sunabouzo

This title is simply wrong; ず ("zu") is never spelled as "zo." And, um, you were the one who submitted the title. Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop

Sunabozu

This is also the URL of the official site, http://www.sunabozu.com/​

The problem is how to romanize "ぼう": either to "bo" or "bou" (or even "boh" or "bô"), an old question we've seen so many times. Since the official site stated it as "bo," I'd say we just stick with it and list "Sunabouzu" as an alternative title, although I know its intended meaning is "坊主 (bouzu)".

All right, I'll buy that argument.

So, I've taken all non-redundant data that was in this one:

Sunabouzo

and entered it in this one:

Sunabozu

Which means that if you like, you can pull back and nuke the former from orbit, keeping the latter.

In the latter, there are now a few redundant episode titles, which should be cleaned up. I added mine from the other one, because they had more data.

4496 - Ichigeki Satchu Hoi Hoi-san (OAV)
4507 - Ichigeki Sacchu!! Hoi Hoi san (special)

And

2547 - Masou Kishin Psybuster (TV)
4197 - Cybuster (TV)

These two are the same. If you would like more support for this claim, you can look at the dvd cover as well as Geneon's page: http://www.cybusterdvd.com/​
The characters and machine's are clearly the same as these examples:

Good - then there's no non-redundant information left in it (except for the picture... do we want a piece of promotional artwork, or a screen capture from the actual anime?)

Once you decide which picture to keep, you can nuke this one : Sunabouzo.

I thought if it was moved to the old thread, that meant that they were merged/fixed/deleted/whatever already.

My apologies. Embarassed

There's a couple of duplicate manga titles that I found so far:

Cafe Kichijoji
Cafe Kichijouji de

The correct title would be Cafe Kichijoji de, though I've also seen it labelled as Cafe Kichijouji de.

Shinsen Gumi Immon Peacemaker
Shinsengumi Immon Peace Maker

I don't really think I should touch on whether or not there should be one or two 'm's, since Japanese is not my native language, but IMO it should only have one. In that case, I think the correct title should be Shinsengumi Imon Peacemaker. But that's not the important part. These are duplicates of the same name for different manga titles. The first title is linked to Peacemaker Kurogane, which is the sequel to the first Peacemaker manga, and so it should be labelled as such.

Later,
Ames

Ahh, one last one:

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge
Yamato Nadesico Shichihenge

Again, duplicates of the same series. The correct title should be Yamato Nadeshiko Shichihenge.

Later,

I submitted this correction a while back, but it looks like it's been missed.

Manga #3438 Red River is the US release of Manga #1984 Sora wa Akai Kawa no Hotori ("Heaven is by the Red River"). "Anatolia Story" is sometimes used as the tilded subtitle for the latter.

These two should be merged.

Three cheers for Ishtar!

I'm not sure if this falls under duplicate or not, but in the Galaxy Angel IV description you've got Galaxy Angel S listed as an alternate title. But the entire page is about Galaxy Angel X. But if you went by order, Galaxy Angel, GA Z, GA A+AA, GA S, GA X, Galaxy Angel S would be the fourth one. So it's up to you. Also you've got Galaxy Angel 2 (Z) and Galaxy Angel Z listed. I know one of those is a duplicate.

Misspelled:

Tenshi Na Konamiki (manga)
Tenshi na Konomaiki (manga)

Correct:

Tenshi na konamaiki (manga)
