We need to figure out what we want to call each adaptation, since they both have the same name. We can go by year, author, or magazine--though I'm not sure which magazine Michihara's magazine ran in.Canary 23:06, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
Her first manga adaptation ran in Chara then later moved to Shounen Captain. Her second and currently ongoing adaptation; Eiyuu-tachi no Shouzou is running in Comic Ryu Zepwich 08:29, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
That's... confusing. Is it a second adaptation running in Comic Ryu (making the newest adaptation a 3rd) or a continuation of the 1990 series ala Trigun/Trigun Maximum, and all those eromanga the censors nabbed a few years back?Canary 11:51, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
So with that in mind, I'd suggest the following nomenclature for each series:
  • Legend of Galactic Heroes (Michihara)
  • Legend of Galactic Heroes: Heroic Portraits (Michihara)
  • Legend of Galactic Heroes (Fujisaki)
That way it's clear that two of the adaptations are by the same artist. As for the translation of the second series... "Heroic Portraits" is the most direct, but rather clumsy. Any suggestions for an alternative take?Canary 11:56, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Heroic Portraits is a continuation like Trigun & Trigun Maximum. Also some new content was posted. Hopefully a scanalation group picks it up considering how much new content this series has been getting lately. Zepwich 21:43, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
The sneak peek contents are so misleading! Of all the scenes they could reveal it had to be from "Empire's Afterglow". What would people think of Reinhard now >.> (PS: I think it is fine to keep all Michihara adaptations under one article, then distinguish them within the article itself.)

The usual convention is to disambiguate with the year of release. See for example Wikipedia's MOS naming conventions for film, television, and anime/manga. If we use the author or magazine it should include the word manga, like (Michihara manga) or something  ♥ kine @ 22:43, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
I don't really understand why the word " manga" would need to be inserted, but maybe its best if we use the years for the series' respective debuts, since that would involve FEWER characters (and simplicity is, I think, something to strive for). The only problem I see is the increasing number of adaptations. With five different (and soon six different) adaptations of the novels, of nching in the years seems more... vague to me, somehow. Does that make sense? I don't know. Maybe it's better to just shelve this discussion until we have to redetermine so many of our policies and conventions in March.Canary 11:37, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
