I'm cleaning up the Wikipedia article on Love-chan and I'd like to ask a question or two for anyone more familiar with Love.

First of all, is the name "Love-chan" actually used outside of Channel-Ai? It seems like everywhere else "Love" by itself is used.

And second of all, did Love It chart on Oricon at all? This page seems to claim not, but I'm not convinced.

Thanks Smile.

Yes, it's used outside of Channel Ai as well. Her orginal name is LOVE, but it's normal for japanese people to add a -chan to cute things Meow.

Yes, it charted at the Oricon Charts. It reached #82 in the weekly charts and sold 1334 copies.

LOVE as LOVE-chan is not only in Channel-Ai. Smile Somewhere else may using this name too. Smile
But yes, I think for a LOVE article on Wikipedia, it may use only LOVE, since the name of this kawaii usagi Love is LOVE. Nod


Note
LOVE, not Love. Nod





PS
Eugeniu, are you an admin on Wikipedia? Smile

What website would I be able to find this chart information? Thanks Smile.

No Tongue, I'm just a normal user. There's nothing really special about being an admin in my opinion though. As a normal user you can still issue out warnings to people.

About capitalization, on Wikipedia unfortunately, you actually can't ever use all caps on names because it is against Wikipedia's manual of style on Japanese articles and trademarks. Basically you always have to use standard English punctuation and formatting, so "melody." has to be "Melody", "MORNING MUSUME." has to be "Morning Musume", "LOVE LETTER" has to be "Love Letter", and so on. But stylization can still be mentioned in the beginning of an article, like it is in LOVE's article.

No, that was done by MS, a user who hates collaboration (and kittens) and insists on the strictest interpretation of all Wikipedia policies. Personally I'm not a huge fan of MOS:JP; I just follow standard formatting because that's what the rest of Wikipedia is doing.
