I just noticed they are officially called "King Record, Co.,Ltd." (without an S) in English even though the logos says otherwise.
They have a tiny English page too which is nice of them.

it's simple, king records is the (main) label of king record co ltd (I think I told it on the chat)

I think I'm gonna create a page for "king record co ltd" and make "king records" its imprint
and also remove all that starchild / king records nonsense

King Records should still be the distributor on those albums though, right?

no, because it's a label, not a real company
all of those distributed by king records should be removed and replaced by king record co ltd

I'm only starting, but if you want to help, I won't say no
it makes months I wanted to update that, because some labels are used as distro companies and it's pretty wrong

I forgot, I must ask SS to add a Record Company option in the label page

Yeah, seems correct. Good thing I added just one entry that had "distributed by King Records" lol

I mean like on those two you just changed. You removed the old one as the label but didn't add the new one as the distributor?

http://vgmdb.net/album/815 <- by the way, that should be Konami

for those, there are "konami label" and "falcom label"
honestly I hesitated to create an imprint for those ones, because there is no mention of "label" on scans but only the company that made the things
so I prefer using "konami" and "falcom" as the back covers side shows

@815: oops, I was in that "falcom label" stuff

I don't think they themselves consider "King Records" a label though, unlike Starchild:

it's normal since it's the main label related to the name of the company, they don't need to specify their main label name
you could say the same for lantis and lantis co ltd (lantis being the main label of lantis co ltd, basically it could have a page for that too but honestly only to make the distinction between music dept/divisions)

I've cleaned up a few albums already, but please remember not to link this as distributor. This is the correct entry for that: http://vgmdb.net/org/1251

I think we've reached a level in our taxonomy of King Record(s) where even I don't know what I'm doing.
