Currently, the tag is the parent tag, and it has the synonym . Can we reverse the direction of the synonym to make the parent tag as the one with the English title? I think this would be in line with the current policy.

  • Hmm, upon further consideration, it is not clear to me that "Girl Beats Boys" is really the English title, and not a subtitle for the anime series. Wikipedia offers "Fighting Delinquents Girl Leader", but I can't find this title in use anywhere other than in the Wikipedia article. MAL doesn't list it, for instance. Perhaps it would be more accurate to create kenka-banchou-otome-girl-beats-boys instead? This fits in the 35 character limit.

This is a bit complicated.

Kenka Banchou Otome is actually a media mix. In this case, the Kenka Banchou Otome series originally started as a PS Vita game. Later in 2015, a manga titled Kenka Banchou Otome ~Koi no Battle Royal~ (also known as Kenka Bancho Otome: Love's Battle Royale) was published. Then in 2017, an anime adaptation titled Kenka Bancho Otome -Girl Beats Boys- was broadcast.

However, looks like Viz licensed the series as Kenka Bancho Otome: Girl Beats Boys instead? As per an article on AnimeNewsNetwork and a tweet by Viz when they licensed the "Love's Battle Royale" manga,

Announcement! @ShojoBeat has acquired Kenka Bancho Otome: Girl Beats Boys!

As such, I'm still not sure if using Viz's naming as the tag makes sense in this case since the subtitle for the manga is actually different.

  • Thanks for the detailed reply! It seems it's best to stick with the current tag names and synonymization direction.
