This is a terminology guide for users who are not necessarily accustomed to the terms the wiki favors. The wiki prefers to use the official or most accurate translations from the manga, databooks and other Japanese sources. The list of terms is alphabetized by the common terms (i.e. FUNimation dub terms, Viz terms, etc.). Please try to refrain from using the terms on the left in articles and opt to use the terms on the right in them, for they are the terms the wiki prefers.
