I just wanted to let you know that some of the release dates you offered are different from the ones I found or calculated - so please if you have some references let me know! How I figured out most of the dates: Releaseday is always a wednesday so I looked when people started to talk about the spoilers (normaly "available" on monday if the chapter is relased in the same week) so I took the date of the wednesday of the same week.
I hope you know what I mean - I kinda fail to explain this accurately in english at the moment. My brain demands sleep xD
And it was stated in epilogue 2 that epilogue 3 will be published on July 15, 2015 and not July 29th (but still Magazine No. 33). Also: "Spirit" was the first side-story (at the end of that chapter it's stated that "The Seidou Diary" will be coming next).
Hi there! For the character ages, we are guided by the guidebook (and Terajima's tweets). Take for instance Haruichi, from the guidebook Haruichi's age is 16 (during his first year). And from there we follow the timeline of the manga. Since its already the Spring Tournament, April - (?) he is already 17. Sawamura will turn 17 by May of the current timeline, and Furuya by Summer. :)
If you have clarifications please feel free to ask. :) Or if you have other references for the characters ages from the manga itself, the anime or the guidebook please let me know. :)
I'm getting the feeling you don't uderstand how Japanese age is listed or how most guidebooks list character ages.
In guidebooks, depending on when it's released can list characters they age they turn that school year, the age they are as of the chapter before it's released, or the age they are at the beginning of the series.
Because of Haruichi's birthday is listed as 16, that means the guidebook list characters' ages by the one they turn that year. Also Haruichi and anyone born in January-March are born in the year after everyone else who is in the same grade level as them (April-December). Please keep in mind, Asian birthday cut offs are different from Western countries.
Being Asian doens't really matter. If you're from Taiwan, you follow the same birthday cut offs as the Western countries. Japan, Hong Kong, and Mainland China follow the March of the next year cut off. Pretty sure any school year that starts in April follows the March cut off.
It's also mentioned in the anime/manga that Taiwan starts 6 months earlier than Japanese schools too.
"I'm asian but we follow the western way of birthday cut offs" >>> I only said this in response to your statement: "Please keep in mind, Asian birthday cut offs are different from Western countries." (sounds to me you're generalizing here v(^u^)v ).
XD Oh well, I already told Linzer about this (those with Jan-Mar bdays :) ), let's wait what she got to say. XD
Hi!!!! XD okay so there's the word. XD errr... I suppose I can leave the ages to you then. :) As for the "Skills" section of the infobox, it would be much better to use ( ) than (*). We can just use (*) in the Skills section of the page. :) Happy Editing! :)
