Is "seiyu unit" really a recognized phrase? Kerochan no Miko 09:51, 24 September 2006 (MST)

In Engliish? No. In Japanese? Yes. [1] --Kuroyanagi 11:19, 24 September 2006 (MST)
The last time I checked, this site is in English. Kerochan no Miko 11:56, 24 September 2006 (MST)
Hitoshi Doi calls it a "seiyuu group", which makes more sense to me. I suggest changing the name to that. Kerochan no Miko 12:18, 24 September 2006 (MST)
Last I checked, Sailor Moon was a Japanese product which is heavily immersed in the unique Seiyu industry in Japan. Seiyu-related industries haven't caught on much outside of Japan and this term has not been picked up by any fandom. --Kuroyanagi 12:51, 24 September 2006 (MST)
I don't think you understand what I'm saying here. Yes, Sailor Moon originated in Japan. However, this project is being put together by people who speak English, from the perspective of people outside Japan. As I said in my previous comment, I don't have an issue with the article itself, but rather with the translation (?) into a phrase that doesn't make as much sense in English. In other words, here we talk about Japanese things, only we phrase it in translations which make sense to us as English speakers. Kerochan no Miko 12:53, 24 September 2006 (MST)

Seiyu Unit: What Tohru Furuya calls his junk. Ex. "At the party the drunken voice actor exclaimed, 'Who'd like to touch my seiyu unit?!' and was promptly fired for sexual harassment."--WikiSysop 15:56, 24 September 2006 (MST)

And there's one reason I wanted to change it to "group". :P Kerochan no Miko 16:35, 24 September 2006 (MST)

"Seiyu Unit" has 36,200 Google hits, while "Seiyu Group" has 99,200. Also, the latter makes more sense in English. So that's why I made the move - also, nobody objected to the move when I suggested it yesterday. Kerochan no Miko 13:27, 25 September 2006 (MST)

Actually I'd have 2nded it. lol 210 18:12, 25 September 2006 (MST)
