Summary Sections

The Summary Sections are sections that contains data about the character (or episode) of the series in a written form.

For Character (Or Pet) Articles

Personality

The Personality section is where information about the character's behavior in the series is exposed. ATTENTION: This section only appears in character articles.

Appearance

The Appearance section is where information about the character's appearance (skin color, hair color, eye color, outfits, etc) is exposed. However, it is divided into three sections:

  • School: Here, you put information about the character's school outfits.
  • Casual: Here, you put information about the character's casual outfits, that is, outside school.
  • Other Outfits: Here, you put information about the character's outfits during a birthday party or during a event.

The reason for this division is because the series has scenes where the characters are inside or outside the school, and because of that, it should be divided. But be warned: the character may also be wearing the school uniform outside of school and therefore, it should be addressed in the School section instead of the Casual section, as the latter deals with the house clothes that the character wears.

History

The History section is where the character (or pet)'s biography in the series. However, it must be divided in three sub-sections:

  • Background: It is where the facts of the character's history before the series events are exposed.
  • Season 1: It is where the facts of the character's history during the first season are exposed.
  • Season 2: It is where the facts of the character's history during the second season are exposed.

Also, follow these guidelines:

  • Only put the last sections if the character appeared in one of those seasons.
    • If the character appeared in the first season, put the Season 1 sub-section.
    • If the character appeared in the second season, put the Season 2 sub-section.
  • While writing the Season 1 and Season 2 sections, put a Sub-Heading 2 section with the name of the episode that the character appears. Check the example below:
== History ==
=== Season 1 ===
==== Episode Name ==== 
Example. 

For Episode Articles

Synopsis

The Synopsis section is where the official synopsis of the episode is placed, that is, a short summary of the events of the episode. You can get from these respective sites:

Plot

The Plot section is where a complete summary of the episode should be exposed, but for that, you must watch the episode first to know all the episode data, where you can watch on these sites:

However, you must follow these guidelines:

  • The plot must be written entirely in third person.
  • Plots that are too short or that have been taken from sites like Wikipedia or IMDb will not be accepted.

Bullet Sections

Trivia

The trivia is a section where curiosities about a certain character, place, item, event, group or even things that are revealed in an episode are exposed. However, the only things that are not accepted as trivia are:

  • Theories.
  • Fan-fiction.
  • Things that are too much obivous about the character (or episode).

Cultural References

The Cultural References sub-section contains curiosities that refer to facts of pop culture, such as films, characters from other media, TV series, etc.
