Apparently so:

I'd like to report errors on the following entries:

Animax-asia (Hong Kong)

Animax South Asia

Animax India


I would like to point out that it would be better to place these under Animax-Asia. Yes, I am also aware that there are four Animax feeds currently operating in Asia, namely:

-Animax South East Asia
-Animax HK
-Animax Taiwan
-Animax South Asia


Yes, there are four different feeds, yet they are all operated and managed by Animax-Asia, a regional branch of Animax Japan.


So, I believe that it would be best to get remove the three entries mentioned at the beginning of my post and put recognize the four feeds as a part of Animax Asia.



Thank you very much and I appreciate your kind consideration.

"Sha" = "company", as in "kaisha" and Yuugen Kaisha.

Last Question. Is anyone really fixing this duplicate entries? @[email protected]

I asked this of Mr. Macdonald when I met him at Anime Boston, and he stated that fixing duplicate companies are a low priority, as
    *It is more fun for the staff to enter new information than to make corrections on old information;
    *Duplicate companies do not affect the accuracy of the anime and manga entries, which are the priority;
    *There are a large number of reported errors to correct;
    *Many people report errors without any substantiating evidence, which means the staff has to do the research (taking up more of their limited time).
    *Doing so is difficult and time consuming, especially for this catagory of mistakes;
N.B.: This is done from memory more than two weeks later, so I am bound to have made a mistake or two of my own, including leaving a reason out.

Shogakukan Productions Co., Ltd.
Shogakukan Inc.

When you put in just "Shogakukan" it changes it to the first one. The second one seems to be working with anime, but a lot of manga are published under it when they should be with the first one.

I think? x_X

IMHO it's the other way around. Shogakukan (literally means "elementary school building") started as a book publisher for children and teens. ShoPro was established much later to handle its licensing affairs.

I know what it means. Razz But err, then maybe something should be fixed so that when you put in Shogakukan as a publisher it doesn't default to the Productions Ltd one?

AMG Studio
AMGStudio <-- Typo
These are the same company.

America Television
America TV
Same company, just one has TV abbreviated.

Asastu <-- Typo
Asatsu
The first one looks like a typo and has nothing listed under it.

Audiomaster 3000 Mexico
Audiomaster 3000, Mexico
One has a comma the other doesn’t… although, both don’t have any anime listed under them so both should be deleted.

AXN Asia
AXN-Asia
Same company, one has a dash the other doesn’t, both deal with broadcasting.

Azubata Production <--typo
Azuhata Production
Same Company, both deal with photography, the first one seems like a typo

ufotable (not in Encyclopedia)
ufotable zippers (see below)
UFO Table (incorrect)

There's no company named "ufotable zippers." However, on each and every anime produced by ufotable, the animation production studio is always written as
Quote:
ユーフォーテーブル (ufotable zippers)

Could it be that "ufotable zippers" a studio under ufotable, like MSJ / MSJ Musashino or Blizzard / Blizzard North?

Production I.G. duplicates:

Production I.G
and
Production I.G.

Very small difference with a single missing period, I'm not sure if that is relevant.

Also: (I think it's a simple spelling error still with a missing period)

Productio I.G USA
and
Production I.G. USA

Another misspelling with the Production IG issue above. Apparently missing the "d". But in this company there are no titles posted with which it has been involved.
