    Default Name fun. Also a Kairi topic.

    Alright, Im looking through my japanese dictionary and I found some interesting/funny stuff

    These are the translations I found using my dictionary

    Kairi: dissociation, beaver, nautical mile; 1852m; 6080ft, strangement; separation
    Kai: marks yes-no question, low rank; subordinate; lower order (e.g., byte); low-end, the feelings of the people, shell; shellfish; being in between; mediation; concerning oneself with, meeting; assembly; party; association; club;

    Riku: agony of separation, land; shore;

    and we all know what Sora means. But I found this odd and funny. Riku means "agony of separation" while kairi means "separation". I already knew Kairi's name meant that, but i didnt know Riku had something to do with it also. Am I reading in too deep, or does this have a meaning in their relationship?

    Even though kairi is a princess of heart, she seems to have a dark point. I mean all this trouble is because of her. The boys were best of friends and then she came about, causing them to separate. What if Ansem (It was ansem right? ) never sent kairi to destiny islands? Would Riku have gotten the keyblade like he was supposed to? And if so, would Sora be the twilight one? ( its X/1999 all over again I tell ya x_x; )

    And maybe, Kairi isnt meant to have a keyblade. Seeing as Riku had to give it to her. Maybe because of the whole princess of heart thing? Princesses arnt usually supposed to fight. Something just doesnt feel right about Kairi....

    Btw, Im not a Kairi hater. Im just thinking too much is all.

    Her name means SEA, not separation. You see, Sora, Riku, and Kairi's name represent the sea, land, and sky. Like the island. =X

    The separation thing is a misinterpretation...>.>

    Sorry if I sound harsh, mind you. =X

    Sea, Land, Sky and Seperation.

    Makes sense maybe, because if those three elements are supposed to represent the islands, than we know that both Riku and Kairi suffered an agony of seperation on it, like Riku was desperate to see other worlds and wanted to leave the island, that could be the agony. Whilst Kairi was seperated from Riku, but more importantly Sora, that was large part of her story.

    Yeah, I guess, but it's been confirmed that the separation wasn't really what her name means. =X

    Mind you, I'm a Kairi fan and I'm just easily annoyed because a lot of Kairi bashers use that name excuse to support "OMG TEH HAWT YAOI!" >.>

    I dont mean any bashing but
    Online English to Japanese to English Dictionary <--- this dictionary says the same thing
    And the one Im holding in my hand says the same also. ^^;

    I mean, I already knew that the whole land, sea, sky thing, but a word can mean more than one thing.
    Like Ame can mean rain or sky or candy. xD

    Nomura said what it meant, he never dismissed anything else though.

    *sigh* I kinda wish Kairi would have a darker side. I would LOVE her if she had an anti-form. ( but, alas, shes a princess of heart >_>; ) That whole holy-im-perfect thing is getting in the way of me liking her more. I hope to god in the next game she has more personality than just a mary-sue. D: She has SUCH a pretty character design! >< ( 2nd game anyway. ) KH needs more girls like Larxene. Now SHE was awesome. I'd go yuri for her. XD

    Interesting. Not sure it will have it means anything, but it gives us something to think about.

    Riku's Keyblade is not the Keyblade of Twilight its a Keyblade from the realm of Light.

    And although seperation is a meaning of Kairi, I beleive the intended translation is sea. Of course, it could have a hidden, meaning.

    Its already been said that Dawn is the keyblade of the inbetween world. neither light nor dark.

    Nomura said that Riku's Keyblade is from the Realm of Light in the Another Report book.

    Sora=Sky
    Kiari=Sea
    Riku=Earth (you can include sand, because sand is apart of the earth)

    The three S's ^^

    Riku is actually more properly land, I beleive. At least I think that's what is intended. Not a big difference, but worth mentioning, I suppose.
