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.

Somehow, school vocab is quickly turning into negatives
こうか (校歌) school song
空手部（からてぶ）- Karate Club
One of my friends in high school (Japanese National who moved to America because of his parent's work) had this dream of taking me with him back to Japan so I could challenge random high school Karate clubs so he could watch me decimate them for fun >.> (background...I had practiced martial arts for many years with my primary style being Choy Lee Fut, but I've also taken lessons in Hapkido, Aikido, Gojiryuu Karate, Kendo and Judo. I'm also 190cm tall and weigh about 140kg...so to the Japanese I'm a human tank)
ぶんかさい （文化祭） cultural festival
@Sai I once got decimated by a 2m aikido black belt in a competition... ^^;; Good times.
いくえい (育英) education
いどうきょうしつ （移動教室, field trips - often times for elementary and middle school students）[wiki link]
Changing the theme to fantasy, or just general stuff you see in a supernatural anime/manga!
まおう (魔王) demon king
うみぼうず (海坊主 a sea goblin) Japanese wiki [link]
Next person starts from ず(zu).
To all, plz add romaji, too if you can.
A Pokemon; the sole reason you hate exploring caves in the game.
としでんせつ (都市伝説) urban legend i.e. modern fantasy
つちのこ (tsuchinoko, 槌の子, a Japanese legendary snake -like cryptid.) Japanese wiki [link]
Next person starts with こ (ko).
Beginner players do not need to play with the current theme: "fantasy, or just general stuff you see in a supernatural anime/manga!" suggested by Utsu.

Anyone familiar with the TYPE-MOON universe (which includes series such as Fate/stay night and Tsukihime) would know about the supremely powerful ability: Reality Marble, which allows one to materialize their inner world.
