>well i haven't taken any words from anime (and i must admit my anime
experience is limited to sailor moon, poke'mon, and 2 episodes of
ranma 1/2) but i do take words from other sources... the word for
'scar' is 'forde' after harrison ford (the actor... who rocks whether
in space or in a fedora)... the word for evil is 'spike' after the
character spike from 'buffy: the vampire slayer'... and then i use my
own idiosyncrasies (for example: naming one of the bathroom stalls in
my dorm 'harvey' and then using 'harvi' to mean bathroom in
narethanaal)... i have also stolen several words from german,
english, and polish and a lot of the time i come up with words by
looking at a word in english and then rearranging the letters... and
of course there's the tried and true method of stealing other
people's typos :)... i've also been thinking about stealing the
'farscape' curse words...
