Revision as of 11:48, 19 April 2009

NOTE: Currently this is still just a draft for a capitalization policy.

The following are some rules for proper capitalization of the titles of anime and episodes.

Japanese transcription

  • For Japanese transcription titles, all words should be capitalized 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, wo, yo, (etc...)

English

Rules

  • The first and last words for English titles are always capitalized, and all except the words listed below are capitalized.
  • 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, to, up, with
And: as (only if it is followed by a noun)
  • Prepositions are sometimes capitalized:
Prepositions are capitalized when they are the first or last word.
Prepositions that are part of two-word "phrasal verbs" (see below for examples) are capitalized.
Prepositions that are over four letters long. (across, after, among, beyond, ...)
  • These short words are capitalized in titles. Some people occasionally forget to capitalize these:
also, be, if, than, that, thus, when, what, is, are, do, it, so, was, has, had, have, am
as (if it is followed by a verb)
