This template is maintained by Wikipedia:WikiProject Anime and manga. It is designed to handle anime, manga, their associated films, OVAs, and other related media, in a single modular infobox.

Usage

This infobox is constructed by sandwiching one or more components between a header and footer. For consistency, it is recommended that components be sorted by release date.

Unless otherwise noted, fields should reflect original Japanese dates and editions, as multiple countries/languages leads to clutter.

For consistency, the infobox should remain within the scope of its host article. If, for example, separate pages exist for an anime and its associated film, the film component should not appear on the anime page, and vice versa. The "Other" component may be used to provide links to such closely related works. Similarly, if an article's primary topic is not an anime or manga series, and such series do not receive more than an incidental mention, the article should use the infobox designed for the media type of its focus (e.g. articles on novels and novel series should use {{Infobox Book}}, articles on films should use {{Infobox Japanese film}}, etc).

The title parameter in each component is optional, and should be used when the title of the specific anime/manga/etc. differs from the name parameter in the header or (if none is given) the article's title.

Other parameters are documented in the following sections.

Header

{{Infobox animanga/Header
| name            = 
| image           = 
| caption         = 
| ja_kanji        = 
| ja_romaji       = 
| genre           = 
}}
Parameter Explanation
name Full common name of the anime, manga, light novel, or etc. Defaults to article name.
image A relevant image for the work, which should be a movie poster, a DVD/VHS cover, screenshot, or another related image. Be sure to include a valid fair use rationale for the image if you upload one. (ex. [[Image:Example.png|230px]]) Optimal image size is 230px.
caption Image caption, which should describe the type of image used.
ja_kanji The title written in kanji or kana.
ja_romaji The transliteration of the kanji/kana title using Hepburn romaji. Leave this blank if it's the same as the name field or the page name.
genre List of genres which the work belongs to. List more specific genres over general genres (ex. Mecha is a subgenre of Science fiction, therefore only Mecha should be listed instead of both).
