So, where did the name come from? Another SBS question? - BattleFranky202 21:41, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
- Yes, from SBS Vol. 58. --YazzyDream 22:09, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
I'm against this Whoshu Whoshu, were does it come from ? In particular this middle h between the w and the o... We completely lose the connexion with the english word which is obviously the reference here. Wash in english is prononced with a o sound so there is no need to change the name. We don't use the literate romanisation for page names, so why should we do for this devil fruit ? Also please don't change the name elsewhere until we agree on this. Kdom 06:33, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
- I completely agree. I think it's pretty obvious that Oda meant for the fruit name to reference the english word. --YazzyDream 06:59, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
I'm sorry I changed the page title without permission. But, Washu Washu is completely mistake. And Wash Wash is not good. For example Horo Horo no Mi(horo=hollow), Bomu Bomu no Mi(bomu=bomb), Doa Doa no Mi(doa=door) --- japanese and english pronounciation are not same. In this case, ウォシュ whoshu is an abbreviation of ウォッシュ whosshu (=wash). --Klobis 08:51, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
OK you've got a point, but then why Whoshu instead of simply Woshu. Kdom 09:16, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
See Romanization of Japanese and Wāpuro rōmaji. There is no universally accepted way of romanizing common combinations such as "ウォ" of katakana ウ(U) and small オ(O). Wo=ヲ(O, same pronounciation as オ) in rōmaji. ウォ can romanize who, uxo, ulo.
OK then, it looks really weird, but since we use the japanese for devil fruits name. There is no reason to make an exception. Kdom 10:56, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
I still think Uo would be more correct than Who, especially seeing as I have yet to see an example where Uo is romanised as Who. I have also never seen Ulo or Uxo, so i have no clue who is romanising your manga if your's is like that. Pharap 19:06, September 21, 2010 (UTC)
English Name? Edit
Dis the Viz Manga give this fruit an english name? If the Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Daibutsu has an english name, wouldn´t this fruit? If so, could someone update the page with its name please?
