Help bring this series episode titles to a common pattern

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0444745/epdate
I was trying to convert this to the long title as it used to be a total mess, but now I get silent disapproval from somebody up there, and the updates don't go through.
What should I do now?

Hi Andru,

Our policy is to reflect the titles of the episodes as they were initially released and display on screen therefore if you are amending them to the full international title then this is likely incorrect.

In this case, the title of the episode does appear on the screen (in the DVD version). Actually it is the long title that is shown simultaneously in the following format: Akt # - Chapter title: Episode title in Japanese kana ~ something else in German
The episode title is subtitled.
I am fine if IMDb wants to have it all converted to the simple Japanese title (which would be rather uninformative however). These are listed in romaji as well elsewhere on the Internet.

Hi Andru,

Although the DVD version lists it on screen it is likely that the episodes originally aired under the Japanese title so please use the transliterated Romanji title only.
