Correct Kanji

Does anyone know what Tamegai's first Kanji is supposed to be? It's listed as 2 different ones on both the Laser Discs and DVD covers. While 為我井 is used for the LDs up until the last episode of SuperS, it then changes to 爲我井 for Stars. The same goes for the DVDs, except 為我井 is only used till the last volume of S, and then it's replaced with 爲我井 all the way to the end. I have been working on a complete staff list pdf, and this is when I came across these changes. I checked episode credits aswell, and they change from one season to the next. Should we be using the latest edition? Anyone got any of the other anime their work has featured in to compare? ~ Fighter4luv 18:47, 26 February 2009 (MST)

Both of those two kanji stand for the same word (as per "color" & "colour," etc.), but I suspect that the latter is from Chinese, since it's no longer commonly used in Japan (even not in China). It could still be from Japanese, tho, since she might deliberately use it for her family name. --210 23:04, 26 February 2009 (MST)

As I got towards the end of Stars, I noticed the kanji would change from one episode to the next... talk about inconsistent hehe ~ Fighter4luv 16:53, 1 March 2009 (MST)

Since "爲我井克美" wins in both the google & wiki wars, I've changed it accordingly. It's not unusual for Japanese using the old kanji written forms in their family names or even given names. --210 21:36, 1 March 2009 (MST)


Why did you (Wikimoon admin) remove the trivia I added, this is supposed to be an encyclopedia and I think what I put is very interesting because it shows how he loved the characters he created and also Uranus + Neptune. It is also interesting that he draw couples in each cover. And it is more interesting to see how he paired the Star Lights with their counterparts.

Shrinking this:

To this: and drew the covers for that season's LaserDiscs.

Seems appropriate for a dictionary not an encyclopedia. I would like to know why the text that took me a while to phrase correctly was removed. I don't add stuff arbitrarily. Thank you. --Endymx (talk) 17:06, 20 January 2017 (MST)

I removed it because detailed descriptions of laserdisc covers is not relevant to an article about Katsumi Tamegai. The relevant information is that he drew the covers, which is now in the article rather than being shoved into a footnote. Kerochan no Miko (talk) 18:22, 20 January 2017 (MST)
