I stumbled upon Educational manga about a mad scientist which is a manga identification request on this site and from the look of it, I think it's allowed on this site (upvoted and not closed).

I found What do we think about story identification? and Are comic identifications on topic? which seems to conclude that yes, identification request is on-topic.

Anime & Manga Stack Exchange is maintaining a meta post What identification requests are acceptable here? Otherwise, where else can I possibly get helped with it? in which it provides alternative sites such as SE sister sites, or even external sites.

Considering that this site also looks like a suitable alternative site... now, before opening a possibility of flood gate of low-quality manga ID questions that have plagued Anime.SE:

  1. Is this site open for being mentioned as an alternative site on a comment?
  2. If yes, is this site also open to be listed on the said meta post?

(Of course, we'll try our best to provide recommended guidance before suggesting them to post on this site)


The golden rule of migration is "Don't Migrate Crap". Story identification questions on this site must be as detailed as possible, with a few suggestions outlined in Guidelines for good story-id questions?; the tag info page is also always a good place to look.

I'm a bit of a regular in the Anime&Manga chat room, and from what I see, there aren't too many ID questions being asked on A&M anymore. Most of them are closed fast, and the crappier ones are closed and deleted even faster.

My point? I don't think we'll get an influx of bad questions because A&M community has a good sense of quality. I think we could use a bit of manga-related questions here, for an extra bit of diversity. I don't think this is a great venue for the askers: if we had many people able to answer such questions, I imagine we'd have more manga questions by now, but then I may be wrong, and maybe we'll get more users from A&M hanging out around here.

All things considered, I think it's perfectly fine to redirect askers here or migrate existing questions that pass the golden rule check.

  • Quoting the golden rule is only helpful if everyone can agree on what defines the subjective measure of "crap"ness. Judging from the comments of A&M regulars that I've seen, I'm not sure they and we have the same idea of what makes a "crap" ID question. This answer might be improved by linking to Lit's documentation on ID questions, e.g. meta and tag wiki.

  • Thanks, looks like there's no issue with it; I'll add this site to the Anime.SE meta post. Feel free to improve it if it lacks something!
