If the convention is to stick first to the box, why isn't this entry labelled:
The Legend of Zelda - A Link to the Past (USA) ?

Similarly, why "Langrisser, Der (Japan)" instead of "Der Langrisser (Japan)"?

I find the current way of dealing with "the"/ "der" and other articles slightly annoying and would much rather the labelling followed the title itself exactly.
(In fact it's super annoying when browsing directory listings ^^;).

Is this set in stone or can we vote? xD

2.1.4 Ordering
If the first word is a common article then it will be moved to the end of the main
title and separated with a comma. This includes non English common articles
Example 1: The Legend of Zelda -> Legend of Zelda, The
Example 2: A Man Born in Hell -> Man Born in Hell, A

Thanks for your reply, could you link to the full rules?
It's a damn shame "following the box" doesn't take precedence in the matter.
