Yummy![edit]

Depicted in Spirited Away the things she throws at the soot balls and then they dance with it. Was that kompeitō?--Seru Mun (talk) 18:57, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

flavor?[edit]

One of my little students gave me a jar as a gift. What flavor are they supposed to be? Chris (クリス • フィッチ) (talk) 15:59, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

I know that in Super Mario Galaxy, the items called Star Bits, which are based off of the candy, are supposed to taste like honey. GaeMFreeK (talk) 19:28, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
The Kompeitou I've been getting (made by Kasugai, comes in a shiny green plastic Ziploc bag) have no flavor besides the sugar itself. However, in Stellvia, Shima describes the flavors as sugar (white), maple (yellow), and soda (blue-green), not naming flavors for the other colors (red and orange, at least). I'm currently looking for a real-life source for this flavored Kompeitou. 66.25.184.217 (talk) 03:16, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Konpeito is generally unflavored but can come in flavors such as ajisai and sakura (seen at Asakusa). Fickce4 (talk) 01:05, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

move to Konpeitō/Konpeito[edit]

For this term, the spelling np is more common than the spelling mp, and np fits more to the original Portuguese confeito. --Unnecessary stuff (talk) 03:20, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Numerous grammatical errors[edit]

This article needs a LOT of clean-up. I started to do so, but it became too daunting a task. Skaizun (talk) 08:22, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was moved. --BDD (talk) 19:02, 3 January 2013 (UTC) (non-admin closure)

KompeitōKonpeitō – As discussed above; also, WP:MOS-JA mandates the use of modified Hepburn romanization, which is -np-, not -mp-. Jpatokal (talk) 01:14, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Support - non-controversial move of Japanese-language-only term romanized for English wikipedia. JoshuSasori (talk) 01:21, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Support - I'm pretty sure you can just tag the redirect for speedy deletion so you can make the move. elvenscout742 (talk) 01:35, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Also, I think we can assume a support in absentia from User:Unnecessary stuff. :P elvenscout742 (talk) 01:39, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Er, db-G6 should never be used for anything remotely discussable because they self-delete the history of who the requester is and because they don't appear on the WP:RM Technical Moves. For future spelling corrections of this kind WP:RM TM is the appropriate transparent middle point between a full WP:RM and a sneaky db-G6. Do however suggest that if this gets to Dec 29 with WP:SNOW that the next admin dropping by instead of !voting just closes it. In ictu oculi (talk) 02:24, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
Ugh. Didn't know that. I've already done so twice, although I was also the one who wound up moving the pages, so it didn't really make much of a difference, but I'll be careful from now on. elvenscout742 (talk) 07:47, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Support - per Hepburn. (also I have filled in cn tags and removed refimprove banner) In ictu oculi (talk) 02:18, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

*Strong oppose. It's against MoS ja and the revised Hepburn. Oda Mari (talk) 08:06, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Support. per MoSja. Stupid of me! Sorry I forgot it was a loan word. Oda Mari (talk) 08:34, 29 December, 2012 (UTC)

::Are you sure? JoshuSasori (talk) 08:08, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Comment Neither of the two is the most common name according to the Google Book Search result.
    • "Kompeitō" 1
    • "Konpeitō" 3
    • "Konpeito" 66
    • "Kompeito" 59
―― Phoenix7777 (talk) 08:31, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
Macronned forms are never the most common form on Google Book Search, but the general consensus is to use revised Hepburn (read: macrons) for words that have not entered English usage, and I'm pretty sure Konpeitō qualifies. Jpatokal (talk) 11:20, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
You don't seem to read WP:MOS-JA#Determining common usage.
If the name become (widely) known in the English community, the macron will disappear. If the name is hardly known in the English community, the macron(ed) version should be used. ―― Phoenix7777 (talk) 11:33, 29 December 2012 (UTC)
That's exactly what I'm saying: the word is not in common usage in English sources. (Compare eg. "geisha", which gets 519,000 hits.) Jpatokal (talk) 09:59, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Luís Fróis[edit]

Can anyone tell me what the primary source(s) is/are on Fróis bringing konpeitō to Nobunaga? Did Fróis himself write about this, and if so where? --Iustinus (talk) 23:20, 5 February 2017 (UTC)
