Welcome to Banana Fish’s manual of style page! Please find the wiki's layout for articles:

Page LayoutEdit

Guidelines for different aspects of this wiki.


  • Wikis are meant to be encyclopedias of their topic. As such, the pages should be written factually and free of speculation.
  • Headings are not to be bolded
  • The navigational template is best placed on every page, excluding the main page.


Please do not add new types of categories without confirmation from an admin. There are specific categories meant for each page.

  • Character Pages: "Characters," and either "Female," or "Male"
  • Location Pages: "Locations"
  • Images: Either "Art," or "Episode #" For example, a screenshot from episode would have the category "Episode 02."
  • Music or song Pages: "Music"
  • Episode Pages: "Episodes"


  • Official images are for the article pages.
  • Edited and fan art is nice on User areas such as Profiles, Message Walls, Blogs to Discussions.
  • Each image should either have the category "Episode #" or "Art."
  • Each image from episodes should be added to the image gallery of their page in the order they appear in-episode.
  • Screenshots are ideal without being cropped or edited.

Character Pages Edit

Each character page should start with either

  • The best summaries simply explain the story!
  • Story plots are written in the narrative present—that is, in the present tense as the story unfolds.
  • The basic structure of many narrative plots includes a lengthy middle section during which characters repeatedly get in and out of trouble on their way to the climactic encounter.

References Edit

  • Referencing is a good thing to get to grips with: after a point, in the source editor (the three horizontal bars beside the “Cancel” and “Save page” when editing a page) simply type:

<ref>the text you want to appear</ref>​

Also, under the "References" heading on the article, add:
