This is the question https://anime.stackexchange.com/questions/14801/who-is-lucas-akimoto and the revision history.

I'm not sure if the removal of is correct.

The question is asking whether a character in the anime is a reference to something, which I think is ill-fit for the description of the tag (emphasis mine):

This tag is for questions looking for meanings, either explicit or subject to interpretation, behind a character, a setting, an action of a character, a plot point.

What do you guys think?

    I believe removing it is correct. Questions about characters should fall within the general scope of a series tag. The series tag takes precedence before anything, if applicable. The Soul Eater question doesn't need it per say as it i asking about a specific reference. Take a look at this meta if you wish to discuss specifics of the tag.

  • I've thought for a while that symbolism is too vague and broad to be a good tag. On the other hand, the last time we debated this on meta, there was no consensus. At the very least, I think you should be safe removing it if the question clearly has little to do with symbolism. In this case, the OP is asking about a possible reference, which is rather different IMO. So, in short, I agree with your interpretation.
