I have submitted a film credit multiple times and it never gets posted. The credit is for Japanese actor Ippei Ohsako and is for his acting credit in Shin Godzilla . I was able to list it in his bio and even add an image of him from the film on the IMDb page for Shin Godzilla for which he is even tagged in. There are even also multiple news sources that mention the film in his acting credits. How can I get it added?

Hello Avery,
What is (are) the reference number(s) of some of your submissions?
Have you allowed enough time for your submission(s) to be checked & added to the database?

Yes, I've waited months on end and re-submitted multiple times. Here is his image from the photo gallery for Shin Godzilla: (he is in blue in the center) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4262980/...

Does Shin Godzilla get an on-screen credit in the cast list.?

To include someone for the first time they need an on-screen credit.

That’s probably why your submissions were rejected.

If they were credited then you need to a screen-grab of their name in the on-screen credits.

Yes he is listed both on screen in the film and on the film's official website but it is in Japanese. He is an established actor and has 10 other credits on his IMDb entry. He is not just an extra or cameo. He has a character name in the film as Yuminari.

Can you include a a screen-grab of their name in the on-screen credits with your submission? 
Store the screen grab somewhere on the internet (maybe at somewhere like http://photobucket.com/
Then include the URL of the image in a MIscellaneous Comment as a part of your submission. 
 
Which name is his filmography recorded under on the IMDb?

It would be in Japanese though. His IMDb is under Ippei Ohsako.

Hi Avery -

I can see that your submissions were not approved as our editors were unable to verify the information and will need to see further evidence.  As Steve requested above, can you post a screen grab here of the end-credits of the film featuring "Ippei Ohsako's" name?

I can but the problem is that they are in Japanese language. That film has a massive cast. I believe the English release only list the main cast/crew(a small portion) and leaves the rest in Japanese. It is one of his biggest film credits even though he appeared in Death Note films. It was the selling point for hiring him for our Japanese daikaiju film The Great Buddha Arrival as I was in charge of casting.

Hi Avery,

Unfortunately we won't be able to proceed without the associated screen grab confirming that he was credited on screen.

Above is a screen grab(with his name underlined) of the cast list as they appear on screen in the film from the official Shin Godzilla website linked here:

http://www.shin-godzilla.jp/sp/cast/

Now although it is only available in Japanese this is his Asianwiki page which shows his name in Japanese which can easily be compared to prove it matches:

http://www.asianwiki.com/Ippei_Osako

His name in Japanese:

大迫一平

As you can see it's a perfect match. Will this work?
