I thought we should left as "TENSHINRANMAN" because it is what t says in the cover, even if it is a typo error.

Please, explain me. In cases like this, we should ignore these kind of errors on the covers?

The pronunciation of the Japanese ン changes depending on what sound follows it. Before a few consonants (I think b, m, and p), it has more of an m sound, and sometimes you'll see it romanized with an "m" rather than an "n." Live example at the Asahi Shimbun newspaper: http://www.asahi.com/english/.

So "ramman" isn't really incorrect, although we would usually use "ranman" here on VGMdb. Since "TENSHINRAMMAN" is printed on the album, it's fine to use that as the display title and add "TENSHINRANMAN" as an alternate for searching, etc.

oh and another post about your global submission romanticscent
it's display title (english, partial or complete) followed by jap and romaji
not display, romaji and jap

I know that you put "If I do something wrong, please pm me to let me know." but it's more direct in threads

I dont usually read these threads as I dont, receive any kind of notification about discussions on my submissions. It would be ease for me that way. Liek this, I just read by chance. Like now. I came here by chance. Know what I mean? That is why I put that on my signature.

I will try not to forget about that tip.

actually, that "tip" is on the left of the album title field
display (as I said)
original (it's generally japanese, but not exclusively)
romaji (no need for explanations)
other (not mandatory but it can have other readings)
