Snow said:
@Ren-chan - You'll have to check with the manga mods regarding Yondaime Ooyamato Tatsuyuki since the manga guidelines only touches on it briefly. For the news team, we have to stick to the English title that is found in the DB (or synonyms if those aren't available). Any changes made there will be reflected in the main post.


Thanks @Snow, I will ask
