What was the revert for, and why didn't anyone say anything?

"Dark Fact's Counterattack" isn't very helpful by any metric. It's not our fault the character's name is "Dalk Fukt", or that the album has a Japanese title. At least with titles, we (rightfully) avoid unofficial translations; all these old albums were simply "added to the database" and need to be updated whenever found.

edit: Not worth bumping. "Usage" does not matter, because it is precisely from misinformation through sites like this one that such "usage" happens; Wikipedia tries to do the same. People don't really understand how this "living language" thing works, and it is because of that that it falls apart so hard every day in real life, even as people try so hard to forget every time.

What is "Dalk Fukt no Gyakushuu"? For the past 14 years (and possibly earlier), this album was called "Dark Fact's Counterattack". Usage is what matters, so the proper title, per usage, is Dark Fact's Counterattack.

I did the revert because of this:

Man, I freaking love this album. The only weak tracks IMO are Judgment in Hell and Kill or Cure, although those driving sound effects in the latter are so cheesy that they end being kinda funny . I wish I could buy it

Also, 逆襲 = Gyakushuu = Counterattack or Revenge

Is it officially Dalk Fulk? I mean has it been romanized that way om some manual etc.? I mean, translations and jap manuals nowadays seem to have it as Dark Fact unless I'm wrong.

It is actually 'Dalk Fukt', yes. 'Dark Fact' is the English localization of his name. Yeah, what the fukt, Falcom?!
