We need to be consistent

This document aims to maintain consistency across all MAL Rewrite synopses regarding terminology.
It tackles changes in English localization—including sub versus dub—and differences across varied medium adaptations. Inquiries not dealt in this document should be directed to a coordinator.
As MyAnimeList is primarily an English site, the only localization that will be considered is English.
