Of all the non-Japanese nationalities, i have a feeling that a German has maybe the best (read: a very faint one) chance to beat a Japanese fighter. At least in the first fight. I dunno, they seem fond of Germans in fiction for some reason.

OTOH, Reinhold has what might be the most boring design yet, so i'm not exactly rooting for him.

IIRC Meiji Japan explicitly based its modernized military and governmental structure on Prussia's (and I think brought on a lot of Prussian advisors). Japanese admiration of Germany basically gets its roots from that, I think.

I like how SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA is a battle cry in Kengan Ashua. It's one of those small things that just sounds cool.

This is very common in Chinese because it's literally just shouting "KILL" at the top of your lungs. It's a fairly common as a battle cry in Japanese too, but I don't know the reason there.

Sure sounds cool tho

Also holy poo poo stop putting everything in quotes constantly. Why do they translate it like this?


It's a Japanese delinquent stereotype I think

You aren't doing it 「right」 until you've mastered the 「art」 of fancy quotation 『marks』

Haraguchi sounds like "stomach mouth", good for the CEO of a food company

"He's huge. Somewhere around two meters, I'd say."

man i always get hosed when the actual height of characters in manga is brought up, because i always subconciously add like 5-6 inches to them.

here's a mountain of a man, who needs to duck under under door frames. he's around 6' 4-6"

4 inches or so is roughly the difference in average heights between Japan and the US, so...

Sister complexes are such a weird anime/manga thing so I want mokichi to lose

Uh, the US has the exact same thing, just usually on the part of the father rather than an older brother

And actually no-poo poo-threats-with-a-shotgun real instead of overexaggerated trope

Agreed, he's a fighter, not a killer, he needs someone like the Kure clan.

Given the plainclothes people attacking him right now, it would be perfect if Kure-sensei from dumbbells showed up to rescue Koga.

I'm guessing in Mandarin it would be "mei wen ti"

Interesting that Cantonese is closer to the Japanese pronunciation of the same characters (mondai)
