==Japanese transcription==
* For Japanese transcription titles, all words should be capitalised except for particles unless the particle is the first word in the title. Some common particles are::''de, e, ga, na, ni, no, o, to, wa, yo, (etc...)''** Regarding にて, which has multiple uses, transcribe as follows:*** にて used as 1 word particle: "nite"*** にて used as 1 word verb: "Nite"*** にて used as particle に and 手 meaning "hand": "ni Te" (に手)*** More generally, in cases where it's particle に + some word pronounced "Te", as in where it "can be construed as etymologically being constructed from parts", transcribe as "ni Te"* As a general rule, if the Japanese title contains words (in Latin alphabet) that are ALL CAPS or MiXeD CasE, the transcribed title should always be properly title cased. (Exceptions include abbreviations and initialisms that are usually upper-cased. Ex: TV, NHK, UMA, ...) See [http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=cmt&id=51254 this forum thread] for details.

===Rules===
* As a general rule, if the Japanese title contains words (in Latin alphabet) that are ALL CAPS or MiXeD CasE, the transcribed title should always be properly title cased. (Exceptions include abbreviations and initialisms that are usually upper-cased. Ex: TV, NHK, UMA, ...) See [http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=cmt&id=51254 this forum thread] for details.
 
* The first and last words for English titles are always capitalised, and all except the words listed below are capitalised.
* The following are lower case, unless they are the first word or last word:
:'''Articles''': a, an, the
:'''Conjunctions''': and, but, or, nor
:'''Prepositions that are less than five letters long''': at, by, for, from, in, into, of, off, on, onto, out, over, per, to, up, with
:'''And''': as (only if it is followed by a noun, adjective, number, or group of words functioning as one)
* Prepositions are sometimes capitalised:
* These short words ''are'' capitalised in titles. Some people occasionally forget to capitalise these:
:also, am, are, be, do, had, has, have, if, is, it, so, than, that, thus, was, when, what
:as (if it is followed by a verbor group of words functioning as one)
