Relations

Last updated 4 months ago

This section allows you to set the relation of works compared to others in the same series or universe.

Relations page for the 'Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!' anime

Relations should be in chronological order. Examples: Bakemonogatari, Fate Stay/Night

Opposite Relations

When a prequel, sequel, alternative, character, compilation, contains, source, or adaptation relation is added, the corresponding reverse relation will be automatically added to the affected entry.

Example 1 (Adaptations):

The light novel Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! was announced to have both manga and anime adaptations: Adding the novel as the 'source' to both the manga and anime automatically adds the manga and anime as the 'adaptation' to the novel, and vice versa.

If a work that isn't eligible to be on the website, such as a full novel, receives multiple adaptations (such as anime, manga etc.). They would be linked through the alternative relation.

Example 2 (Sequels):

The anime City Hunter had a second season released: Adding City Hunter 2 as the 'sequel' to City Hunter automatically adds City Hunter as the 'prequel' to City Hunter 2, and vice versa.

Example 3 (Compilations):

The now-defunct magazine, Pure Yuri Anthology Hirari, which solely published one-shots, released an anthology containing a selection of six of their one-shots:

Adding Isshun no Asterism (one-shot) **_to Shuuden ni wa Kaeshimasu (anthology) with the 'contains' relation automatically adds Shuuden ni wa Kaeshimasu as the 'compilation'_ to Isshun no Asterism, and vice versa.

Parent Relations

When updating all other relations (spin off, side story, character, summary, etc.) you have to do so from the 'parent' entry. The parent relation will then be created on the other entry as the opposite.

Example:

The light novel Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! had the manga spin-off Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Bakuen wo! announced:

To link the entries, you must be in the light novel entry and set Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Bakuen wo! as a 'spin-off'. The 'parent' relation will then be set in the opposite direction back to the light novel.

One-shots that are adapted into a proper serialization are linked through the 'alternative' relation. The source would remain 'original'

Branching

Relations should always branch off the first publication of a series if the series has multiple formats, unless it is clear that a spin-off or adaptation is clearly branched off from a later format.

Example:

The light novel Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu was serialized in January 2014, and had a manga release, Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu, in May 2014, which is linked through the 'adaptation' relation. Two spin-offs, Mushoku Tensei - Roxy datte Honki desu and Mushoku Tensei: 4-koma ni Natte mo Honki Dasu, were then serialized in December 2017 and October 2018 respectively. Both spin-offs only branch off the light novel, and not the manga, so are only be linked to the light novel.
