AAAAND we're back!

Welcome back from the unplanned hiatus. To start this topic, I just thought I'd share a random DB fact.

Bulma -> Bu-Lu-Ma (as translitterated directly from Japanese)

The first "u" can be dropped, since it's been inserted into a consonent cluster. The second "u" can be replaced by "oo", since it has the same sound. "Ma" can become "Mer" since "r" is a liquid consonent and is implied by a long "a".

Doing all this, we get "Bloomer". Add an "s", since Japanese has no plural tense, and we get "Bloomers", the meaning of Bulma's name.

If you don't believe me, just think of her father's name, "Dr. Briefs," and her son, "Trunks." :p
Still trying to quit the internet. Or is it stop trying to quit the internet? I forget.

Going with the underwear thing, her mom's name is Bra. I think. And I have no idea what the cat's name is. At this rate, it's probably tampon or something.
Joe's like, the complete opposite of everything that's my hero...but I like him anyway, just because he's Joe.

I don't remember the cat having a name. Her mom is Mrs. Briefs and Buruma*'s daughter's name is Bra.



* - Just showing another way people spell Bulma's name. Not that I use it that often.

Bulma daughter? Is that in the last saga, or in GT?

All the names of the DB(Z) characters are like that.
Vegeta: Vegetable
Kakarot: Carrot
Etc. I saw them on some site once :)

And at the VERY VERY end of Z. I believe she was in the manga at the end but I'd have to double check that.
