    Grin Shiritori Word Chain Thread (Summer, 2014): Closed

    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 (retasu, lettus) ---> (suika, watermelons) ---> 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.

    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.

    くまにく (熊肉)

    We need to stop

    But standard shiritori is too easy. Maybe we should restrict by topic or something? Or have a separate advanced version?

    I'll just go with a food item for now. Good night.

    まんじゅう

    Edit/add: @cmertb We could make regular and theme-based advanced word game threads.

    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.

    ---------- Post added at 08:23 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:30 PM ----------

    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...?)
