Badass and Cute Scenes of Usagi Miyamoto
I am forever sad that we didn’t get an Usagi series. He was so epic in TMNT and I wanted to see more of his world. I wish the writers had gone with the idea of Leo traveling back to his world and training under a master there; imagine all the badass adventures our honor bromance would’ve had! <3
hmmm, I didn’t read the comic though, but I believe he has a scar on his forehead… eeh, whatever.
An interesting question, Anonymous-san!
You are correct. In my mother tongue there are many, many ways to say “I” all depending on the situation, who you are talking to, your status, and even your own personal preferences.
I am no exception to this, of course. I choose specific “I’s” that fit the best at the proper time. Though, if I were to choose which ones I use the most often…
—I would have to say that I use watashi (私) and soregashi (某) the most. Watashi is a very standard way of saying “I” for both men and women, and is probably the most common. Soregashi, on the other hand, is a way of saying “I” usually reserved for samurai. Though, I have been told that in Third Earth it is rarely, if ever, used anymore.
On occasion I will use ore (俺) if I am comfortable enough to be a bit more informal with whoever I am speaking to.
I hope this answers your question, Anonymous-san!
[ooc: Wow, Anon sure threw me for a loop with this one. While I’ve taken a course in Japanese, I didn’t really get far enough in to learn all the do’s and don’t’s with all the “I’s”.
I had to do a bit of research and choose what I thought would be the best for Usagi. I even watched the Japanese dub of The Big Brawl parts 2, 3, and 4 to see what they had Usagi use. Much to my frustration, I could only pick up one instance where he actually referred to himself. That I could tell, at least—I don’t have the best trained ears. He used “ore” which is why I decided to add in that on occasion he will use that one.
Though, as I mentioned, I’m novice at very, very best and did the best that I could with my limited knowledge. If anyone knows about this better than me and thinks Usagi would use different “I’s” please, do not hesitate to tell me!]
—You are an echo, Anonymous-san.
Pardon? Is there going to be a large storm in New York soon?
—If so, I am sure Leonardo and his family are aware of it, but perhaps I will mention it to them anyway.
Random butt-kicking Usagis.
…—I have no words, Leonardo.
Thank you, Leonardo!
And a Happy Valentine’s Day to you as well.
