Is Penguin Parade NOT a japanese manufacturer?Is Penguin Parade NOT a japanese manufacturer?Ask MFC

So I added these yesterday to the database:

http://www.penguin.bz/201810/dolls/img-ptnk3.jpg

Only to find them removed when I woke up today. An hour of saving pics and making entries absolutely gone, ssg.

Isn't the rule on chinese origin items that they're okay if the manufacturer is japanese or am I getting that wrong? PP has a japanese address listed on their website www.penguin.bz/... , am I missing something here?

But I guess we GFL fans must suffer the unfairness of this site. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I was going to keep ranting but now I'm 100% sure mods won't listen to suggestions regarding chinese origin items (I listed like, 4 different ways to go around the No CN items rule in an item that got added to the db only to be ignored and of course, the entry got deleted).

EDIT: As people explained, it's not an issue with the mods, and I apologize for trying to put them in a bad light. Hopefully this is resolved in the future though, as there is an increase in chinese anime series, manufacturers, as well as japanese manufacturers expanding to China. (i.e. Good Smile Arts Shanghai and ACtoys).

I don't think there's anything else to be said about this issue. The comments say enough, most people want a fair exception to the rule that makes everyone happy.

danddIl y a 1 an#64898141Yes, anime is the Japanese word for animation in general. But anime is a genre specifically original to Japan and that is factual. That nasty little weebs crack must make you feel superior but it only shows your immaturity. There are people here who have been collecting anime longer than you have been alive and have forgotten more than you will ever know about it.
ok grandpa

Mate I'm pretty sure all of us with a sense of humour into anime and manga in general refer to ourselves as weebs as a legitimate piss take.
Lighten up.

TeruyowIl y a 1 an#64898131Japanese people use the word anime for western shows too. It's usually western weebs that hold the word anime as a sacred word that can only belong to Japan ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As a Japanese, I can comfirm that XD

The secondhand embarrassment I felt when reading that last sentence is too strong oh my god the elitism- the superiority complex- dsksjskgjfj I'm sorry I didn't know I have to be over 40 years old to be a True Anime Fan? How is my knowledge of anime relevant to anything? Calling me immature and then proceeding to say something so embarrassing wow

You're 100% right anime as a genre and style comes from Japan but that doesn't mean people should look down on non-japanese anime as if it was inferior. Don't know about the rest of your comment my dude, that's a big cringe

And also a reminder that anime is only short for Animation in japanese. Japanese people use the word anime for western shows too. It's usually western weebs that hold the word anime as a sacred word that can only belong to Japan ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I mentioned it before, but Azur Lane is getting an anime series done by a japanese studio and a PS4 game also done by a japanese studio.

Usually there's separate origin entries for games, anime and even anime seasons (See: Persona 5 and Persona 5: The Animation have separate entries) so once japanese companies start making AL figures and classify them as Azur Lane The Animation are they going to be considered chinese even though the anime was done by a japanese studio?

HitomiHimeIl y a 1 an#64858594I still think the non Japanese origin thing is horseshit given we have Funko pops on this site.
Just blatant bias at this point since you can't exactly say Myethos aren't anime figures but because they're Chinese they're not allowed.
The premier example of sticking to the letter of the law rather than the spirit.

AkiraIl y a 1 an#64898109Currently, I really hope people understand is not the mods fault and is more about them not being able to change the current situation bc that depends on the site owner. Is neither about the origin of the current chinese companies, is just old rules that need to be updated...

I assumed it was a mod problem, but after people explained that they can do nothing about it I feel bad I tried to blame them, I apologize for that orz

buffoonIl y a 1 an#64898046Is this site perfect?
Hardly, there are many things about it I find distracting or unnecessary; but, there is nothing wrong in sticking to the original core premise: Japanese anime figures and merchandise. And, I repeat, I hope kumasan continues the site in this vein and sticks to his original belief that this site stay that way. (He has already capitulated many times over the years adding items that, in my opinion, have bloated the site to overflowing and made search more difficult.)
There are many, many lovely Chinese figures and "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" and it's great that China and other countries are successfully capitalizing upon original Japanese anime. Start collecting sites for them.
"Anime" is original to Japan. Japanese is the focus of this site and has been since its inception. I sincerely hope it stays that way.


Excuse me, what? Kuma abandoned this site a long time ago. When was the last time we had an update or news? The site is basically on life support.

I find it funny "Japanese is the focus of this site" when everything is made in China.

The users here come here for the anime aesthetic, and I think many couldn't care less whether it was made by Chinese or Japanese hands. Most people couldn't even tell the difference.

Also, "too much work," should not be the excuse of a damn figure collection SITE. The goal is to be a repositorium of ANIME figures, no shit it's going to be big. Let me tell you something. The bigger problem is not the amount of "work" (there is ALWAYS work), but rather the amount of people working. Kuma has abandoned this site and it's... basically run by a small group of volunteers at this point. When you have a skeleton team trying to manage a database of figures, no shit it's going to be a lot of work. If it's too much work to manage the site, then the owner hand it off to someone who's actually willing to let the site grow.

The fact that nearly everyone considers Azur Lane an "anime series," but it's still denied entries is a bunch of malarky. I thought we moved past that "it's bad since it's not made by AUTHENTIC X" sort of thinking centuries ago?

xxnickiyxxIl y a 1 an#64863247I think the issue here is that the mods are simply not the owners of the website.
The mods are just looking after it. The owner might take offence to the mods 'ganging' up on him/her. It sucks, but the person with the off button has most power. Even if they're MIA.
Unless someone else can grab ownership of hosting I don't see this changing. Even though it sucks


Umm, yeah I get what you mean. Thought I didn't think of the possibility of that being seen as to offend the site owner, I still hope the rules can be updated someday.

Currently, I really hope people understand is not the mods fault and is more about them not being able to change the current situation bc that depends on the site owner. Is neither about the origin of the current chinese companies, is just old rules that need to be updated...
