Shiritori (しりとり) is a Japanese word game in which the players say a word that begins with the last kana of the previous word. Please join the game to practice Japanese or just to have fun.
Word chain samples: レタス (retasu, lettus) ---> スイカ (suika, watermelons) ---> カラス (karasu, crows)
(You don't need to use color or bold seen above.)
Please make sure to use romaji and add English translation whenever you can.
Advanced players may play the game with themes and added rules, but beginner players can simply post [romaji + English translation] and ignore all the advanced themes/rules.

くく (九九) ... 9x9 multiplication table
Introducing a new 24-hour rule?! - you can only continue with ”て...て” for max 24 h from the first post with that letter-combo.
Wait, I misread. We can still do it for over 12 hours

Okay, this will be my last one (hopefully) ^^;
We need to stop
But standard shiritori is too easy. Maybe we should restrict by topic or something? Or have a separate advanced version?
mmmm....bear (Black Bear ravioli is delicious)
also lets try that c-c-combo breaker again
黒ごま (くろごま) <-im hungry...
I'll just go with a food item for now. Good night.
Edit/add: @cmertb We could make regular and theme-based advanced word game threads.

(There could be one in the style of word-association? Two games in one, double the fun )
Let's go with food then

TO ALL THE BEGINNER SHIRITORI PLAYERS:
Please ignore advanced players, and join us by doing the basic word chain shiritori game.
きなこアイスクリーム（Specifically from Gion Kinana) (also if this is gonna be food...you guys are so on!)
(Yummm, that ice cream looks good Reminds me of the summers we've never had in the UK.)
Technically food; also Mugi from K-ON!, who often brings sugary snacks to club activities
ざくろ (pomegranate, a character from 『おとめ妖怪ざくろ・Otome Youkai Zakuro』)
cmertb, great dinner idea.
Uts, there is a chara called "麦" in the same manga/anime.
Sai, have you tried 黒ゴマソフトクリーム・roasted black-sesami-seed soft serve icecream? (Kyoto's Keifuku Arashiyama Station has a store that serves Kinako and Kurogoma soft serve. )
Edit/P.S. - Homonyms are considered to be separate, so I'll stop the manga reference here.

Why don't we let the food theme expire 24 hours after the first post (黒ゴマ by sai). Please someone pick a new theme. (Edit: Would 熊肉 supposed to be food...?)
