    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:

    ちば けいじ (千葉刑事)
    Chiba-keiji

    Detective Chiba from Detective Conan. One of the very few main (good) characters who hasn't been given a full name yet after all these years But it's likely something along the lines of the name of his voice actor (Chiba Isshin)

    たなかたろう (田中太郎)
    tanaka tarou

    The main character (an alien) from the manga Uchuujin Tanaka Tarou I read as a kid. Personally I always think the name is kinda like (one of) the Japanese version of John Smith XD

    I never read the manga. 山田太郎 and 山田花子 are always together. Would it be ... Mary for John? Mary Smith doesn't sound right...

    けはい (気配)
    kehai

    Sign/indication/presence (something like the "ki" in Dragon Ball Z or "reiatsu" in Bleach) The absolute must-have word in any shounen action manga

    There're a number of variations: John Doe, John Smith, or even Joe Bloggs (we sometimes say this in the UK.) As for female, I feel Mary would work if it were in a first-name only context (Mary Smith sounds weird to me too.) On the other hand, Jane Doe is certainly commonly used.

    On a related note, the Chinese version includes names such as 張三, 李四, and 王五

    いあい (iai, 居合)

    Iai is the control movement to counter-atack with a sword. (It sort of sounds similar to 気配. ) When you feel enemy's 気配, you should be ready for it.

     Would they be equivalent to 一郎、四郎, 五郎 in JP?

    いっとうりゅう (一刀流)
    ittouryuu

    School of one-sword. As the name suggests, it's the art of using one sword.

    @mikkih
    If you mean names I see in school text books, or my maths or literacy homework, yeah probably. Though 一郎, 四郎, and 五郎 sound like brothers to me XD while 張三, 李四, and 王五 are more clearly not related since they have different surnames (zhang/chou, li/ri, wang/ou.)
    I dunno about Japanese homework, but text books wise Hanako is definitely something I remember seeing often

    うどう じんえ (鵜堂刃衛)

    Udo Jin-e (鵜堂刃衛) is a charater (ENG wiki) from manga Rurouni Kenshin (るろうに剣心 -明治剣客浪漫譚- ENG wiki).

    @Utsu
    I would seriously question parental naming skill if all 5 kids were named: 一郎, 二郎, 三郎, 四郎, and 五郎

    Re: Shiritori Word Chain Thread [NEW]

    Since nonamae00 likes "e," here is a word starting and ending with e:
    えどまえ (edomae, 江戸前’): fish caught in the sea near Edo(Tokyo).
