Grammar

In general:

  • American English over British English.
  • Italicize names and shortened names of titles (but not acronyms).
(BlazBlue: Central Fiction and Central Fiction, but CF)
  • When describing characters, use present tense for consistency.
    • The biography sections use past tense.
    • The appearance/personality/powers sections use present tense.

Punctuation

  • Use the Oxford comma: in a list with more than three items in it, put a comma before the "and."
("Apples, oranges, and peaches," NOT "Apples, oranges and peaches.")
  • No apostrophes after family names unless it's in the possessive.
(So, you would have "The Hazukis invited Mai home." and "Izayoi is the Yayoi's treasured heirloom.") http://grammarist.com/style/last-names/
  • Commas, periods, and other punctuation inside quotes, but colons and dashes outside.
("Here is a quote." Here is "a list": apples, oranges, and peaches.)
  • No punctuation marks after an incomplete sentence on a list
  • Ragna the Bloodedge
  • Jin Kisaragi
  • Noel Vermillion
