Reads Too Many Comics
Yamandakka is almost certainly going to be sticking around for a while, since there's no place where it gets killed on screen anytime soon...
Ah, you're right, that's the episode I was thinking of with the forested staircase—but I forgotten the forest back of the shrine. So it is the back side of the shrine (or another corner of the property). Just not an angle we usually see—usually they hang out on the porch on the main building, or over by the souvenir shop.No, this is clearly the Hikawa shrine. The forested long stairs are already seen right at the start of Episode 30 (the one where Gramps and Yuichiro are frolicking among the trees). It also shows the huge trees in that episode. And I have never noticed a ground level entrance to the shrine.
This one knows.Gargoylewing said:Oh, oh, throw a Ring in it ! And a Hobbit ! And have Icland parachute-dive into it !
Yeah, I had to look it up to jog my memory, 'cause I'm going what?Gargoylewing said:WHAT !?!
This thing looks nothing like an original Kirin, if Chibi-Usa has ever seen one !
Point. She's got fantastic aim.After we saw her precision with a mundane frisbee, I think that would not be that far off...
And mad wind ninja dodge.
Obviously Usagi twinked out her Dexterity when no one was looking. AND her attack is stronger than all the other Senshi combined.
Stupid powergamers. ;p
"Usagi, with your dex and bad rolling, getting out of BED is a dramatic skill resolution."Yeah, but she's got terrible initiative—always fires off the mega-attack after everyone else gets their shot.
It helps that she bought off Klutz, though.
Apparently... the standard word for giraffe is kirin [キリン in katakana, like most animal names are usually written these days], while the mythical creature is also kirin, but 麒麟, in kanji.Yeah, I had to look it up to jog my memory, 'cause I'm going what?
However, I had forgotten that in times long past, kirin were equated with giraffes, and apparently that usage has endured, which helps it make sense. Chibi-Usa says in the original dialogue that Kirin is a good name because the critter has a long neck.
Complicated, huh? All right, I'll wait and see.... it's complicated, but best guess is around eight or nine, though one version has her physical age frozen at five, for no adequately explained reason.
"So what kanji is the brewing company?" was going to be my very next question after that helpful explanation, so thank you.Apparently... the standard word for giraffe is kirin [キリン in katakana, like most animal names are usually written these days], while the mythical creature is also kirin, but 麒麟, in kanji.
[amusingly, kirin brewing is the kanji, but kirin holdings is in katakana. And my IME is playing up and that was a pain to write.]
This leads to one of the very few jokes in Twelve Kingdoms.
