Egads! What's wrong with poltergeist and doppelganger???

But seriously, is there really no way to call the 2nd album Otona? (without incurring someone's wrath?) Cause otherwise to keep up with the single-english-word trend we'd have to go back and revert Kyoiku back to Education (which really doesn't sound as badass as Kyoiku). And personally I think Goraku sounds more badass than variety...

Argh.. decisions, decisions.

oasis_heart3 didn't say that Poltergeist and Doppelganger are bad, he said that they're also circus'esque songs :P. (I also thought in Poltergeist when I read "circus music").

Personaly, I call it "Adult", but in my iTunes is tagged as "Otona (Adult)" :unsure:.

Hmm, I call it Kyoiku and Adult, since this is what's on the cover^^

And I think too much thinking about coming TJ releases will only hurt my brain :)

Aye! There isn't really much to debate about on this subject. Adult and Variety have kata indicators on how the album name is supposed to be pronounced while Kyouiku doesn't. It's very cut and dry.

That's right. I'm going to kick anyone's ASS who calls it "Goraku" or, worse, "Goraku (Variety)." I do believe I will go so far as to edit posts, too...

IF YOU DON'T KNOW JAPANESE, THEN PLEASE LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE WHO DO.

It's only "Variety". :D

Orenji, you should really know better by now... but I won't repeat myself, since if you haven't listened before, as much as it pains me, I guess you're not going to listen now. :/

thanks Op :)

i hope you're not endorsing people to say stupid crap like "Adaruto" frex >_<

frecklegirl 2007.07.10 08:01 PM

Adaruto IS stupid but it's the best I can offer as a form of compromise to the people who keep insisting on "Otona" and editing the Wikipedia article likewise (this has ended thanks to my footnote/talkpage debate however :D).

I've also had to put Barieti on the Wikipedia article and make a similar footnote. It pains me too, but it's the only way to pacify some people... and we need to nip this one in the bud before it gets spread all over the net and I get quoted stupid shit like "But Otona comes up in Google searches 20,000 more times! So it's right!" ..............

Tokyo Jihad 2007.07.10 09:04 PM

See, id almost rather Otona/Goraku (or whatever it is) than adaruto/Baraieti. To me saying that stupid shit is telling me the poster breaths through their mouth at a high frequency.

...so please just say Adult/Variety guys if you don't want me to bust a vessel in my head.

Orenji 2007.07.11 12:35 AM

Okay, okay, okay... It's Adult & Variety!! Sorry, Sarah-san Ó___Ò.

Keep talkin' about Variety :D.

Jonny 2007.07.11 12:35 AM

I have a take/good guess, coming from my recent VGS:
The names of the three albums reflect tv channels/programs. Education, adult, variety. The first one suggests NHK education channel (there's gotta be one), then the more adult:ey (as in indecent) channels/programs, and then the variety shows (wiki that). However this is just a guess from my source, but why not... Says Shiina decides everything about this. So we can probably rule out any other people, like BAND MEMBERS, having any real input here...
My source will have a lunch with people from Kronekodow on Friday however and if it doesn't forget it, it will ask XD
