Admin - Anime/Manga Names in Tags Decision

Having read comments and discussed the issue with irony_rocks we've come to decision that we're going to go forward and use Canon Naming Within the Anime.

That does mean the majority of the names in tags will have to be changed to the Last Name/First Name Japanse style of naming, but for the animes or mangas that do not rely on that style (eg. Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, Final Fantasy 7, Baccano!) we will not be changing them. Also from now on we will require that when reccing that the names should be written according to the canon of the anime/manga to keep things organised when tagging.

So from now on:

Ship: Chi-Chi Son/Goku Son should be recced as Ship: Son Chi-Chi/Son Goku
Ship: Faye Valentine/Spike Spiegel should still be recced as Ship: Faye Valentine/Spike Spiegel.

eta: This should also apply to other forms of Asian media such as Jdrama and Kdramas, which I would imagine have the same issue. (I'm not sure many have been recced on the comm anyway.) So if anyone who is familiar with the dramas would please also look through the tags and point any out it would be appreciated.

Now this is going to take a while to change so please bare with us while this happens. Also acenpokerface was kind enough to wrangle up a list of names that so far need to be changed, but if you see any other in the tags that need to be alternate please let us know. If you have any more questions about this please let us know!
