  • Hi everyone, new thread.

    I've sorta been on hiatus since August but have been occasionally making small edits here and there.

    With the conclusion of Railgun T, the Toaru Project is now over. I'll refrain from speaking about how I feel about the whole project but needless to say, Railgun T has been well received by the general anime audience.

    Those who have been paying attention will have realized that the franchise is on the cusp of entering a new era. Consider the following:

    1. Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator manga has ended and its final volume has released.
    2. Astral Buddy manga has ended with its final volume due for release this month.
    3. Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga is in the final stretch of its 3 year long Jailbreaker Arc with the new volume also due for release this month.
    4. Toaru Majutsu no Index manga has finished the long Battle Royale Arc and started the Acqua of the Back Arc with a new volume expected before the end of the year.
    5. Souyaku Toaru Majutsu no Index Volume 3 is due for release in November.
    6. Index SS: Agnese's Magic Side Work Experience will be completed by the end of the year.
    7. Nothing new has been or immediately expected to be announced.

    This means, come 2021, the only ongoing Index material will be the main light novel series, the Index manga series and the Railgun manga series. Or even more condensed, the only new material for the franchise will exclusively come from the light novels and Railgun manga. No extra manga series; no 4-koma series; no bonus side story material; no anime series or announcements; no video games; no nothing

    The last time this occurred was all the way back in 2007 before the original Index anime was green-lit for production.

    The franchise is heading into uncharted territory with the only guide-rails being the guaranteed 7+ years for the new LN series.

    My own resolution is to restart work on my stalled projects (relationship diagrams and referencing style guide).

    Here's to the rest of the year and the final stretch of the old era!

    • I've got a lot to say on the incident but I think Ollerus and The Lord Reader's responses to you seem to have captured all the main takeaways. But I'll reiterate if needed.

      It really depends from which angle you look at it. The incident is bad optics, for sure. When I found out about it, I was mentally cussing. I really don't want the staff and creators who give us material from the franchise to have negative interactions with the non-Japanese fans. Also felt a bit dismayed that js06 also felt he screwed up by translating some of the content. But make no mistake, whoever tweeted it out first is the one in the wrong.

      HOWEVER, as bad as the incident is for the non-Japanese fandom, it only feels really bad because we've never screwed up like this before; we've been spotless before this. In actuality, this kinda incident is peanuts when compared to some of the more shocking leaks that happened with much bigger series like those from Weekly Shonen Jump. Here are three examples:

      1. Bleach - When Bleach came to an end and the final chapter leaked online and was scanlated before the official release date, some dipshit fans went straight to Twitter to directly congratulate the author Tite Kubo on his Twitter account. Needless to say they were pissed.
      2. Naruto - Plenty of controversy here when the Naruto manga was ending. To coincide with manga's ending, a new movie Naruto: The Last was scheduled for release soon after its conclusion. One of the movie animators leaked some designs for spoiler characters before the manga ended. What a shitshow. To make matters worse the spoiler characters were children of the main character and ignited the most toxic shipping war and fallout in anime/manga history with death threats and Twitter harrassment making their way to the mangaka, Kishimoto and some of his staff/editors as well; this coming from the Western fandom. Biggest shitshow I've ever seen (but one I reveled in as the fallout was the most entertaining shit I've ever seen).
      3. One Piece - The manga is super popular enough that chapters which are scanlated before the official release date end up trending worldwide on Twitter and reach the top of r/all on reddit. WSJ staff definitely hate when this happen.

      So Raildex's limited popularity will probably shield us this time around. As long as dumb Twitter users don't post leaks a week before release and given that everyone appears to have taken this as a moment of learning, we should be okay.

      As for what you did in response (deleting offending images and updating the Uploading Guide), well done. Couldn't have done better myself. I think that the wiki never expected to get leaks this early (we usually only get them a day before or right after release). We've been operating on good faith for ages now and the update to the Uploading guide is, in my opinion, the most appropriate response to this incident. Though I believe the act itself is about integrity and honor rather than protecting the wiki from repercussions. Unless the wiki starts hosting the actual source material (translated LNs/manga), they don't care.

      As this is not a widespread issue, no further action is necessary.

    • Just out of curiosity OH&S, what sort of coding do you think would be needed here for an 'On this day' template?

  • Hello, I've done translations for the Index x AW crossover SS as well as some of the drrr crossover, and I would like to upload it to Baka Tsuki. Is that advisable (since I've heard that JS06 dropped the translation of the crossover because of a similar thing), and how would I do that? Thanks.

      Loading editor
    • Yeah, I haven't seen the translator make any obvious steps to translate them.

      B-T functions like a wiki: create a link to a new page in edit mode (while in an already created page), then click on the red link in the preview to go to begin creating a new page.

      I suggest reading up on how to do so in Wikipedia.

      The two crossovers would fit in under the Official Parody Stories section.

      Also, it'd be a good idea to make an account on B-T before doing so.

    • Too complicated to explain. Template:Slider_generator has documentation on the template with links to relevant js and css pages. But you really need to spend time learning about how this site uses js and css and where the key pages are kept.

      Also worth noting that if you created your wiki after March 2020, then it runs on a new MediaWiki platform and that might affect things further:

  • Hi, this is WTR from ZH. Dear OH&S, would you please tell me that if you all use some APPs like TELEGRAM or Discord? If I have some questions about Toaru-Series and Toaru Wikis, how can I contact with you or other admins?

      Loading editor
    • Hi WTR. Its probably easiest to contact us here. We really only strictly talk to each other through the wiki (and maybe forums.animesuki.com on rare occasions).

  • New thread since we're in April.

    Wouldn't have thought we'd be in this position three months ago, but here we are...

    Railgun T's production and broadcast schedule is currently in doubt due to the COVID-19 event forcing Japan to declare several states of emergency across the country. Many highly anticipated anime series that were due to broadcast this season (Oregairu, SAO, Re:Zero) have been pushed to July. Here's hoping that they at least finish the Daihaseisai Arc.

    Dengeki Bunko Magazine (whose final print edition was released today) revealed that Toaru Majutsu no Index: Gaiten Shoku Volume 1 (とある魔術の禁書目録 外典書庫(1)) will be released in June. This is the BD side story collection that Miki promised would be released as a full light novel earlier this year.

    Gaiten Shoku translates to "Apocrypha Archive" but that's probably not a suitable translation. Apocrypha are works, usually written, of unknown authorship or of doubtful origin; as opposed to canon written by the actual author. These side stories are written by the original author, Kamachi Kazuma. The intent of the word is meant to convey that these stories exist outside the main novels. i.e. side stories. So the intent is something like Side Story Library/Stack Room/Archive etc. For the record, js06 is calling it the Side Story Archive.

    Also worth noting is that Haimura is surprised he's been credited for the illustrations as Fuyukawa illustrated the Railgun SS novels. Perhaps Norse Mythology SS is coming out first?

  • I found error in the Unified Calendar.

    The Ninja, ITEM SS2, and the two before it. All occur within a week's time, despite all being different Fridays.

    • W.Dorm SS2: 4th Friday of September (Sep. 29th in calendar)
    • Mother SS2: 5th Friday of September (Oct. 2nd in calendar)
    • Ninja/ITEM SS2: 1st Friday of October (Oct. 4th in calendar)

    • I am aware of those 'errors' since the first iteration of the calendar 5+ years ago. SS2 in particular is impossible to allocate properly on the calendar as the calendar year that is described by the chapter titles cannot exist. Also attempting to space them out clashes with events from the novels. Hence the placement of the above 3/4 events. The light green fill for the event indicates that the date is not exact.

      So don't think too hard about SS2 events in general.

  • Hi, I don't know if it is right to post it here.

    I noticed yesterday, that Kuruwa had already a cameo apperance in the Railgun Manga in chapter 33 page 2 (back of head).

    I just wanted to inform somebody but don't know if it is if it is change-worthy.
