Okay, so going back through the two chapters listed in that wiki entry, yes, it was the superintendent, but it seems that there aren't any citations to confirm it with.

If it's the name you're referring to that would be on the bottom of this page. Don't trust the scanlation as they omitted that piece of info.


Here is the original raw from Chapter 4 of the StrikerS Manga (which the Japanese Wiki actually cites). Just look on the bottom right info box:

Is there any alternate translation for Ground Armaments Service? GAS isn't exactly a pleasant-sounding abbreviation to use...

Well the translation comes from this set of Kanji: 陸上警備隊

It's literally "Land Security Force" (You could always replace the "Land" with Ground to make it sound better.)

Here's what they are broken down:

陸上 - rikujou: land; ground; shore

警備 - keibi: defense; defence; guard; policing; security

隊 - tai party; company; body (of troops); corps

Thank you very much. While we're at it, what about the Air Armaments Service? Might as well give it the same treatment

Here's the original for that one: 航空武装隊

You can keep the first two and just change "service" into Corps

Air Armaments Corps or Air Armed Corps

航空 - koukuu: aviation; flying 航空 noun
武装 - busou: arms; armament; armed
隊 - tai: party; company; body (of troops); corps

Thank you.

Was Sankt Kaiser a title for all Belkan rulers, or was it actually simply Kaiser with the "Sankt" part reserved for only one person due to her deeds/conducts/teachings/something?

And I think this had been asked before, but is it actually "Administrated" or "Administered" World?

I'd just call them Ground Forces and Air Force, respectively...

The war that the Belkans waged until Olivie's death was called "Saint King Unification War" (聖王統一戦争), and it is unlikely to have been named after the messianic Olivie. Also, the SSX booklet keeps referring to the Belkan rulers as "Saint King bloodline" all the way back in history (though it may be retroactively applying the term, as in "Saint King Olivie's ancestors"). Refer to translation here.

However, I also saw the term "Heiliger Kaiser" on the Japanese wiki, so it may be the subtle distinction: "Sankt Kaiser" means regular Saint King, whereas "Heiliger Kaiser" (Holy King) refers to Olivie in particular. The kanjis are the same, however.

You mean the official English spelling? I wouldn't know, but it's called "管理世界" in Japanese. The closest translation would be "managed world", in a way a big corporation manages its subsidiaries. But I guess the first translators wanted to have "administration" in it somewhere to go with the Bureau's full name, and it stuck.

AAS is very different from GAS.

GAS belongs ground force.Each administrated world has 1 bureau at its capital.1 bureau has 1 ground force and 1 air force.There are about 35 administrated worlds when it is Precia incident so there are 35 GASs in the universe.

AAS belongs main bureau.Main beurau has AAS and Navy.There is just 1 main bureau in the universe so AAS is unique in the universe and the elite squad.

And that info is where, exactly, from? I have arrived to similar conclusions after hours of deciphering the Japanese wiki, but nothing seemed to state the above outright.

Yeah, but not all of them have been listed. It may be that the missing 26 were "downgraded" from administrated to non-administrated since their discovery. Since Mid is number 1, I get the feeling that the indices only show when a world first applied for the Bureau's supervision, making Supools the most recent (known) club member.

Alternatively...

...Do any worlds share a number but not status (i.e., is there an Administered World 1 AND an Unadministered World 1)?

That would explain the numbers bit.

Yes and no. Alzas is administrated world number 6, Tre and Quattro are imprisoned over an uninhabited world number 6 since StrikerS. However, there has not yet been a known instance of administrated and non-administrated worlds sharing a number, so it may be they share their index, while uninhabited ones have their own.

I wouldn't trust the english wikia so much. I've noticed a lot of discrepancies in a few things....one that has me irked is how they manage to screw up listing a few people's genders.

(The Japanese wiki is more accurate obviously but it only helpful if you able to read it)

For something that's claimed to be more accurate, I see a startling lack of citations for reference in the japanese wiki.

Really? I've seen quite a few citations...heck they even site (director/screenwriter) quotes from various magazines, pamphlets etc. And they've been pretty good at listing the chapter and particular manga for specific info. Unless you're referring to another site? Or are you just looking in the wrong place?

Either I'm just lucky at finding the ones that lack the citations, or they use a citation system that's alien to my eyes and I'm just not seeing it.
