    Claymore MS pronounciation oddity

    Here's something that's been nagging at the back of my mind for a while now. Why is it spelled 'MANGEKYOU' when it would make more sense to call it Magenkyou? I mean, for one, Magenkyou actually sounds more appropriate. Here's why...

    Ma=Demon
    Gen=Illusion
    Kyou=Madness

    So, put it all together, and you get 'Demonic Illusion of Madness Copy Wheel Eye.'

    Note, I have no real drawing talent, so it'll be mostly literature.

    It really doesn't matter but Mangekyo flows a lot better when said aloud. You don't like Kaleidoscope Sharingan?

    No offense, but why are you arguing Kishi's choice of names?

    its a Kaleidoscope as everyone's pattern is different and the pattern changes when activated from sharingan to MS it makes perfect sense.

    I s'pose. But you DO think I have a valid point though, right?

    Again, no offense, but no, you do not. Aside from meaning something 'cooler', it doesn't give more credence to the MS. Why?

    1. Demon - Which demon are we talking about? No one uses demons. It's not a forbidden technique. Why demon?
    2. Illusion - Okay, we've got Tsukuyomi. Where's the illusion in Madara's? Yes he can phase-shift, but he's still actually there.
    3. Madness - (the 'madness' kyou means crazy/lunatic) Okay, we've got Tsukuyomi driving you mad again. But what else?

    Your proposal is best suited for Tsukuyomi. That's one technique out of the 12 possible MS techniques we have. Nope I don't think it's a valid point.
