company#6677 Planet Manga(Panini Comics)
company#2195 Planet Manga (-)
edit: found another one
company#1689 Panini

All italian, french, spanish and portuguese entries should be moved into Planet Manga (Panini Comics), while german entries should be moved into Planet Manga (-), which should also be renamed as Panini Manga.

company#1960

The English productions listed here should go to 4K Media. Konami owns 4K Media, so this might seem like semantics, but 4K is the one that handles all Yu-Gi-Oh! animation/licensing outside of Asia. They're never credited directly under the Konami name.

I'll do this myself, but unfortunately I can't edit them.

company#16751 (NBC Universal Music Japan) is incorrect, and should be merged into company#12727 (NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan)

The company info for the NBC Universal Music Japan page even lists the kanji for NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan, so there's a definite error there.

TRADUCCIONES IMPOSIBLES (#7783)
Traducciones Imposibles.com (#2967)

Both are the same company. However, the correct name is Traducciones Imposibles (without .com and all caps).

Rapid Eye Movies (#4948)
Rapid Eye Movie (#2838)

The correct name is "Rapid Eye Movies" (see official website).

agnès b. Cinéma(#17775)
agnès b. Cinéma ! (#17776)

The correct name is "agnès b. Cinéma !" see the front of its Blu-ray Disc releases for the current name and this page for confirmation of how it is officially capitalized. Known as "agnès b. DVD" at the time that the DVD of MIND GAME was released; seems to have changed to the current name when they started releasing BDs as well.

Netflix (-) (#10441)
Netflix (France) (#16515)
Netflix (Italy) (#16915)
Netflix (Netherlands) (#16961)

Since it's a worldwide streaming company, here is no need to have several pages for every country. They should be deleted or merged into Netflix (-) and then renamed as Netflix (without any parenthesis).

The artist collective sankaku(△) is listed 3 times in the databse:

Twice as a company:
sankaku△
sankaku

And once as a person:
sankaku△

As you can see on their website, sankaku is indeed a group of people/a company and not an individual: https://sankaku-works.org/about/

They get credits with and without the triangle, but on their website they don't use it themselves, so I propose to add the former as an alias.

FunimationNow was recently created as a separate entry (company#18729), and also has incorrect capitalisation (it's FunimationNow, not FunimationNOW as used in the entry).

FunimationNow should be an alias for Funimation (company#6515).

NUT
Studio NuT

On their website they just go by the name NUT (Inc.), so I'd opt for that. They were indeed credited as "Studio NuT" and "スタジオ NUT" once or twice before, but those occurences were early after their founding.

Comic Toranoana (company#8816)
Toranoana Inc. (company#6753) (correct)

Comic Toranoana seems to be their trading name. Their legal name (in English) is TORANOANA Inc. according to the copyright on the bottom of their website, and their Japanese legal name does not mention Comic in it. https://www.toranoana.jp/company/about/profile.html

I'm not sure if I submitted this previously or not:

Wakanim SAS (company#16522)
Wakanim.tv (company#9103)

Wakanim SAS is the legal name of Wakanim.tv, and should be merged into Wakanim.tv.
