The Geats Rider names

Post by takenoko »

I just realized that Tycoon is probably some tortured linguistic manipulation of Tanuki. I mean this isn't how Japanese syllables work, but maybe: Ta-ik-un?

I always thought Tycoon was a weird name for that guy's personality

Seems like a stretch, but possibly

Eh? How is it a stretch? It makes more sense than the good guy rider being a rich person

Besides the names are all based on their animal. Nago is like some cat sound. Buffa is short for buffalo. Ginpen is Penguin. Shirowe is polar bear (shirokuma) {also is that we silent? wtf}. Mary is Mary had a little lamb. DaPaan is Panda.

I don't know what Geats is though. How is Geats related to foxes? Is it the sound foxes make?

I think it's a bit of a stretch cause they've never done mixing up letters before, just syllables.

And I know this one, it's キツネ kitsune > ギツネ gitsune > ギーツネ giitsune > ギーツ giitsu > geats

Maybe they were trying to say Kitsune really fast 10 times in a row

Tycoon has the "t", "k" and "n" sounds of tanuki, and it sounds "cool" or something, so I suppose they went with that

Imagine a April Fools episode, where they use "What does the Fox Say" in the opening xD
