This Manual of Style outlines a standard of clean and consistent formatting for articles in the 5Toubun no Hanayome Wiki. Please refer to this page before making your edit. Keep in mind that these guidelines will not be perfectly applicable to every situation.

Article Layout

An article should begin with an introductory section – a concise summary of the article – which is never divided into sections. The remainder of the article is typically divided into sections.

Introductory Section

At the beginning of every article, the title or subject of that article should be bold in the first line. Don't forget to also use italicized text when necessary.

New articles should be named according to the subject's correctly translated official name. This usually refers to the English names the author provides and not ones by other translations. If the subject of the article has more than one name, each new form of the name should be in bold on its first appearance.

  • Example: Fuutarou Uesugi is the main protagonist of the 5Toubun no Hanayome series. He also went by the name of Kintarou.

In case there is no canonical name for the subject of the article, you should name the article to the best of your interpretation of the subject.

  • Ms. Nakano is a good article name, given that the subject/character has not been provided with an official name.


Infoboxes should be placed after the introductory section. The following is a list of article types and their corresponding infobox templates:

Article Type Sample Article Infobox
Character Fuutarou Uesugi Template:Character Infobox
Chapter Chapter 1 Template:Chapter Infobox
Volume Volume 1 Template:Volume Infobox
Arc Nakano Quintuplets Arc Template:Arc Infobox
Saga Second Year Saga Template:Saga Infobox
Music Gotoubun no Kimochi Template:Music Infobox
Episode Episode 1 Template:Episode Infobox

Paragraphs and Formatting

You should keep no more than five sentences in paragraph (grammatically speaking) covering one thought or idea or piece of information. Any time there is a change in the thought, idea, or piece of information, there should also be a paragraph change.

When formatting paragraphs, add an empty line between paragraphs. It allows the reader to more easily see that they are reading a new paragraph at that point.

Files and Images

Follow a consistent image naming format:

  • Anime and Manga Images: EP/CH# Character Description Count.
    • Eg: "EP7 Fuutarou Uesugi disguises as Yotsuba" where 7 is the episode number, Fuutarou Uesugi is the character, and disguises as Yotsuba is the description.
    • Count is to avoid duplicated filename: Eg: EP1 Fuutarou Uesugi 1, EP1 Fuutarou Uesugi 2. Mostly used when you have no Description.
    • Other images: Source Description, eg: Negi Haruba's twitter Nakano quintuplets 5 years anniversary or Volume 1 English Cover. (a source is not always needed)
  • Only official images from the series (anime frame/screenshot, manga panel or official image from the series) are permitted in image galleries. You can upload fan arts and edited images for personal use only.
  • If possible, make sure you are not uploading images that already exist. Otherwise, you can replace existing images with those of higher quality.


Image galleries should be placed in the corresponding article subpage.
