Another example for the use of bold type: Recap
:** Convention: Only put unlinked names into italics the '''first time'''. This is to avoid needless excessive highlighting of these names all over the description.
:** Rarely, italics may also be used to highlight certain words that require emphasis.
:* Use of '''bold''' — independent story titles, very special paragraphs:
:** '''Bold''' text should be used very very sparingly, i.e. when in doubt do not use it.
:** One case where the use of bold words has proven to be useful are '''"compilation" anime''' series that are made up of named, completely separate stories, e.g. by different directors. In this case each story title is set in bold, and the rest of the separate paragraph describes the individual story briefly.
:** When a series is spread over several seasons, it can help e.g. the season two description to repeat (summarize) part of the first seasons description, to put the former into context. For this place a '''Recap:''' at the beginning of the paragraph. (Avoid this if possible though, better write everything from scratch.){{eyecatchLight|2|ExampleExamples|Real-world examples Use of bold type for the described layout above can be found for the "compilation" anime: {{a|7056|Aoi Bungaku Series}}, {{a|6757|Shakugan no Shana S}}. Example use of "Recap:" in {{a|4559|Ichigo Mashimaro OVA}}.}}
:* Use of '''<u>underline</u>''' — never!:
:** Please completely '''avoid using <u>underline</u>''' in any part of the description. This text style is not required, and IMO ([[User:foo2|foo2]]) is ugly.
