"Yamaku" Academy

Postby ZystraL » Tue Sep 08, 2009 12:21 pm

From my fractured Japanese, I know that the character for "yama" can mean "climax" and the character for "ku" can mean "bend over".
I found that somewhat funny, although I may be reading/pronouncing/using the wrong characters and meaning for Yamaku.

I also think it would have been hilarious if it was called something like "Kenko Tai" which means "Healthy Body".
I enjoy everything the devs hate. This includes and is not limited to: Pokemon, K-ON! and Lego.

Japanese homonyms sure are funny lol XD. The actual story of the name is both hilarious and embarrassing, so much that I better not recount it.
<Aura> would you squeeze a warm PVC bottle between your thighs and call it "manaka-chan"
<Suriko> I would do it if it wouldn't be so hard to explain to my parents

But now we all want to know all that much more. Leave out names and the embarrassment goes away.

See, it's kooky stuff like this that makes studying Japanese fun. And I was all like "dang, what goes with the kanji for 'mountain'?"

There's more too.
"Academy" = "Akademi"
Aka = Communist/Filth/Dirt (LOL @ Japanese Humor)
De = overflow/outflow
Mi = body/fruit

so Yamaku Academy is a place that is overflowing with communists bending over and getting fruit shoved up their body until they climax.

Sounds like a meeting of those whacky environmentalists/vegans to me.

At least its correct translation would be helpful for those of us who are illiterate concerning the intricacies of the Japanese language. And who knows, maybe there will be another time to tell that particular story.
Ahh, Morticia? I would die for her. I would kill for her. Either way, what bliss.

You could always make an "anonymous" post on the blog, and leave out names, and satisfy our thirst for knowing the terrible truth that you are deliberately dangling above us like a carrot...

It's not interesting at all; Aura just wants you to think it is.

Taking a guess on de-engrishing the translation of that... Eternal Mountain?

If you really want to know, 山狗 was the original spelling.

The more astute of these may be able to work it out from there.

Google translate and wiktionary here.

山狗 'Yamainu'. 山 'Yama' means 'mountain'. 狗 'inu' means 'dog'. 'Mountain dog' eh? Is this a niji reference? More likely its an inside joke, or something that would be relevant only to someone who worked on the project that far back (devs).
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.
