trivia : falkow's 4 sacred beast [CARD SPOILER WARNING]

Postby Susanoo » Thu Jul 17, 2008 12:45 am

actually it's only a small trivia post really.
it just hit me one time whenever I saw azuredragon. why they named it as azuredragon - east. which this translation reminded me of something. and when I check out the japanese card list, my suspicion proved right.

https://login.alteil.jp/lhCardDB/detail.php?id=79 < == japanese version of azuredragon, it's name read as - Seiryuu [vorudoa]

and I found more :

https://login.alteil.jp/lhCardDB/detail.php?id=256 < == it's name read as - Suzaku no Sakushi [sunafu]
https://login.alteil.jp/cardDB/detail.php?id=489 < == it's name read as - Genbu no Gunshi [radoru]
https://login.alteil.jp/cardDB/detail.php?id=705 <== it's name read as - Byakko no Shikikan [rozarii]

for those who knows what i'm talking about. well yes it is. for those who don't know, read on :

Seiryuu, Suzaku, Genbu, and Byakko are japanese names for four mythical creatures of Chinese constellation. they represent elements and direction.

Seiryuu the azure dragon - represent east (wood)
Suzaku the vermilion bird - represent south (fire)
Genbu the black tortoise - represent north (water)
Byakko the white tiger - represent west (metal)

the idea hits me when i read both azure dragon and east. while checking the japanese version, there's no such thing that mention east at all. probably alteil's card translator (annathered i believe) want to keep it this way as still to remind us of these original name. yet these names probably can't be accepted in english version yet there's no specific names for them in english, hence come the east part for the card name.
probably we can expect the directions given to the other beast cards as well later in the future when they are released here.

by the way : sakushi = tactician, gunshi = general, shikikan = commander
I have no idea why the other 3 beasts are given titles for their names while seiryuu have no title at all.

these four mythical creatures are pretty much very famous.
many anime and games used them as reference. if we list out titles that referenced to them, it'll be stack up like a tower. >=9
