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 without speculation.
  • Do NOT bold headings.
  • EVERY page should end with the navigational template, 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"


  • Do NOT add edited or fan art images to pages.
  • 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.
  • Don't edit or crop screenshots.

Character Pages Edit

Each character page should start with either

  • Don't add speculation.
  • Don't add the character is "the only one to..." or anything similar.
  • Don't add that a character is similar to other characters, either in BANANA FISH or any other media unless DIRECTLY referenced in the show.

  • there's also no reason why a plot summary has to cover the events of the story in the order they appear (though it is often useful).
  • The point of a summary is not to reproduce the experience—it's to explain the story.
  • Do not attempt to recreate the emotional impact of the work through the plot summary. Wikipedia is not a substitute for the original.[2]
  • 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. Although such events are exciting to watch, cutting less important ones can make the plot summary tighter and easier to understand.

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:


To gather the references in one section. Here is further information on referencing.
