Nomenclature[edit]

What the *bleep* is a WORM? Which Chapter does it get mentioned in? --Warp L. Obscura 03:09, 12 August 2006 (UTC) Nevermind, I found it in Chapter 20. If anyone wants to put it back in, go ahead, but do not forget the chapter mention. --Warp L. Obscura 14:21, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Chapter Titles[edit]

I'm reading Taruby's scanlations of the manga, but some of the chapter titles are different than the ones stated here. Most are just different (but valid) translations but some are not as close. ex: Chapter 5: here it is 'The Thing You Want to Protect'. Taruby: 'Someone I Want to Protect'. Chapter 6: here it is 'Nobody Said That'. Taruby: 'Don't Tell Anyone'. Which ones should we use? Linkforlife 04:40, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

I suppose we should go with Taruby's. After all, most of the chapter titles I added are garnered from private help and have even less credibility (insofar as the citing and reference conventions are concerned) than the publicly-available (and thus open to critique and commentary) resource that is Taruby's. --Warp L. Obscura 11:08, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

Alright then. I will change the titles tonight, but he has only gotten up to chapter 35. When he is finished with the rest, I will change those too. Linkforlife 14:17, 15 December 2006 (UTC)


Message to Linkforlife and Warp L. Obscura regarding Mai Otome chapter 5 title -

Okay so the title could go either way since the manga title uses hiragana for the word "mono" in the chapter title. See, "mono" has two definitions. One definition means 'Person' while the other also translates to 'Thing.' Both versions of "Mono" have two different kanji which I will provide:

Thing - Mono 物

Person - Mono 者

Like I had mentioned, the chapter title uses *NEITHER* kanji and just uses the simple form of Hiragana making the definition, either/or. So either translation is correct. --Lonewolfkuga 21:16, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

I never said that the old one was wrong, I just said there were some differences. In the context of the story, however, I think it is safe to assume the meaning is supposed to be person. Linkforlife 22:10, 28 December 2006 (UTC)


The hiragana meant for the text to be vague so perhaps it would be better to include "What I want to protect" instead. I had to verify this with my grandmother since her native tongue is nihongo. --Lonewolfkuga 22:14, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Good point. I will change it now, unless there are objections from other users. Linkforlife 22:17, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
