This is Anime and Manga, a Q&A site regarding Japanese anime and manga.

Good questions are

  • Questions which can be answered with facts, or plot items which were already confirmed.
  • Questions which directly ask about a specific manga and/or anime.
  • Questions which directly ask about anime and/or manga in general.
  • Questions which directly ask about canonical events in a specific anime and/or manga.

Bad questions are

  • Questions about future events. They cannot be correctly answered, and they end up as one of two cases:

    1. Either the future event never happens, and the question remains unanswered.
    2. Or the event happens, and then the question is obsolete.
  • Questions which would end up soliciting debate:

    • "Who would win? X or Y?"
    • "Which anime is better? X or Y?"
  • Questions which don't ask directly about any sort of anime/manga, or anime/manga in general.
  • Questions that can only be answered by assuptions not supported with any facts, e.g.:

    • If Spike from Cowboy Bebop had Sharingan, would the anime have ended differently?

  • @grasshopper: I opened a question about this, so we can be clear about it.

  • "plot items which were already confirmed" how is the question asker supposed to know whether it is already confirmed? And if it is not yet (clearly) confirmed/known it still might result in debate
