Konban wa Yuki-san. Watashi wa jouzu ja arimasen... :)

::phew::... After reading Yuki's first sentence, I thought he was going to say something like I horribly messed up my Mario in Japan special. ^_^;;

hi.
deezer san, watashi wa otoko ja nai yo. dakara "he" ja nakute "she" ne.
(deezer, im not a man. so not "he" but "she")
your page about the difference between japanese version and english version was interesting to read. The only thing I had a little question mark in my mind was about "koopa". Maybe its kuppa if written in japanese roma-ji...but I didnt read them all so maybe it("koopa" on your page) was some other character or place's name. I have to go now... have a nice day all

What does "Koopa" mean in Japanese?  My guess was that it came from "kupaajinoko" which means "snapping turtle" (I think).  I also heard that "Nintendo" means "game," but I read somewhere else that another word for the otherworld of Anoyo is "Ninfotendou," a name which reminded me of "Nintendo/u."  I don't know much Japanese, and would like to know if my theories are correct.

Actually, Deezer got that from my site.  Unless he made the connection separately.

Is Yuki coming back?

Yuki: Gomen nasai. And it is "kuppa" in romaji, but in games I've seen it both ways: Kuppa and Koopa.

Mega 2: You have a site?
And as far as I know, Koopa ("Kuppa") means nothing in Japanese. It's probably just a name. And snapping turtles are "suppon."
