We've just gotten our first question on LotGH: What is a more accurate translation of the title of Legend of the Galactic Heroes?. I've provisionally tagged it with . In the English-speaking anime community, however, this is one of those anime that is nigh-universally known by its English-translated title, "Legend of the Galactic Heroes", and almost never by its original Japanese title, "Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu".

Problem is, legend-of-the-galactic-heroes is 29 characters long, which is too long to fit in a tag. Possible solutions:

1 Answer 1


I think that is the way to go, no matter which synonyms we get for it.
I think people may be most likely to type legend first, when trying to find the tag for this series. As such, this seems like the most reasonable way to go.
Although I feel the same way about partial titles in tags, I think this case would be better of with one.

Also, I do not think should be a tag.

    Since nobody seems to have any objections to this plan, I've retagged the question to legend-galactic-heroes. If you could use your moderatorial powers to add ginga-eiyuu-densetsu as a synonym pointing to that, that would be awesome.
