    Grin Shiritori Word Chain Thread

    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:

    Ukemi is the art of falling often time seen in martial arts such as judo and aikido. I don't know much about it, but sai and Utsu could tell you more about it for sure.

    るり (瑠璃)
    ruri

    I'm mainly referring to the Japanese name of the stone "lapis lazuli." Can just add 色 iro to the end to refer to the colour. This type of stone always reminds me of Laputa's levitation stone from Ghibli ^^ It has a lovely blue as well.

    りんご (apples)
    ringo

    I go with a classic word to use in Shiritori game today. Some Japanese women add an honorific "お(o)" to almost everything, but りんご is not proper. おみかん(oranges) is generally acceptable in Kansai area though.

    『キングダム』
    kingudamu


    『キングダム』("KINGDOM") is a popular seinen manga by Yasuhisa Hara. (EN wiki link) Dunno why but I have not read the manga or watch the anime. Masakazu Morita, the voice actor for Ichigo in Bleach, is doing the voice for a Kingdom's main character, Xin (信). I like Morita-san, so I should watch the anime at least...

    @Utsu
    My thought ...
    A Chinese name (also JP name) + strong --> Kingdom

    Next person starts with "む/ム/mu."

    ずんべらぼう(ずんべら坊)
    zumbera-bo/zunberabou

    Here is another youkai.
    Zunberabou (also called "nopperabou" wiki) is a well-known faceless Japanese youkai (ghostly creature), which appears in the story/chapter of Mujina in "Kwaidan (怪談): Stories and Studies of Strange Things" by Lafcadio Hearn (Koizumi, Yamumo). The Studio Ghibli's Pom Poko features a modern retelling of the Mujina. Maybe I should watch the film sometime.

    うまつき (馬憑き)
    umatsuki

    The vengeful spirit of a horse that haunts the one who torments it (wiki). Story goes, 塩の長司 loves eating horse meat prepared in salt or miso. When he finally runs out of horse meat, he decides to eat his old horse. Chouji beats it to death. The moment it dies, the old horse's spirit rushes through his mouth into his stomach, which causes prolonged agony and eventually leads to his death.
