Okazu on Wikipedia

September 23rd, 2007

Okay – I need your help. Okazu has been increasingly cited in Wikipedia entries and I want to collect a bibliography of them all. Some of them are incredibly silly, and some are vaguely interesting – most are just references to my reviews.

Here are some of the cites that I know of off the top of my head from the English Wiki:

Kashimashi Girl meets Girl
Maria-sama ga Miteru
Shiroi Heya No Futari
Strawberry Panic!
Strawberry Marshmallow
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou
Sukeban Deka
Yuri Hime
The Last Uniform
Bee Train
Simoun (anime)
The Sword of Paros
Strawberry_Panic! (short stories)
Anata no Scandal
Oniisama e…
Pieta (manga)
Kuchibiru Tameiki Sakurairo

(I suppose I ought to alphabetize all that but I’m not going to…)

There used to be an entry on me, but I edited it to add a bit about Okazu and it disappeared slightly afterwards. (Anyone feels like putting it back up, you have my blessing. It failed for “lack of notability.” Write me and we’ll write a better entry. lol)

There’s also links from the Russian Yuri and Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou entries.

Yuricon has a stub entry (I’ve got way too much on my plate to do a more detailed one, so again, if anyone wants to expand it, go right ahead!) and is cited in the Yuri entries in English, Russian, Italian
November 15 2007 Note: And my big excitment for the day – I’ve made it into the Japanese wikipedia as a reference for the Simoun entry. Woo!

Here’s what I need from you all – as you scan Wikipedia, can you comment here with links for the various entries where Okazu is cited? I can’t remember half of them – and I’d like to have a record of them all. Thanks to all of you – it’ll be a big help. :-)

    Hi Erica, my name is Valentina and I’m the owner of http://www.shoujoai.it. At the same time, I’m in charge of the Yuri project, on the italian wikipedia.
    In the past, I translated a lot of voices from the en.wiki to it.wiki, including that about Yuricon. Nowadays, we are working to fix the voice about Yuri, that is obviously the most important of the project, but we need images for it. On the italian wikipedia, there are strict laws about the images that we can use, so we can’t add any images from anime and manga – even screencaps – because those aren’t free ones. In fact, we need images in GFDL or Creative Commons BY-SA.
    So, I was thinking if I can ask you a photo about Yurikon, or something like an advertising leaflet… something that we can put on the italian wikipedia.
    I apologize for my bad english… Thanks in advice,


  2. Hello Valentina –

    Of course I would be glad to help. I am busy right now preparing for our Yurisai event. Please email me at anilesbocon01 @ hotmail.com and I will contact you when the event is over.
