Okay...stupid anime/manga question...

January 10, 2011 12:35 PM 1/10/11

What is the meaning of all the stones/jems/jewels shaped like the number nine?

I see it all over the place in manga and anime but I can’t for the life of me find a definition.

I don't know anything about manga and anime, but a quick google tells me the number nine is especially auspicious because it is the most 'yang' number of all. So possibly it makes them luckier/more powerful?

Y'know that's a very real possibility but you'd think there'd be some direct info on this somewhere. (Likely there is and I just don't know the magic google-fu term to get the right response.)

Ya know...I've never noticed that.

Good question!

I just keep seeing it more the more anime I watch.

o.0

Not sure if I sure if I should ask what you have been watching!

That my friend is quite a list. ;-)

Right now I'm watching an anime called Mokke which is a slightly serious slice of life anime about two sisters living with their grandparents because the older sister can see spirits/gods/ghosts/etc. while the younger sister is easily possessed by them.

It's actually pretty interesting. :-)

That does sound interesting!

What else have you been watching?

Let's see...

Over the recent holiday I watched all of Maburaho, all of Clannad - After Story, started Fairy Tail, Kanon, and I just returned the first DVD of Rocket Girls. I'll eventually watch Toradora! because it looks interesting.

Oh and I watched a suggestion from a friend that turned out to be lolicon - Kodomo No Jikan. *facepalm* Hilarious as all hell but only if you've ever known a third grader trying to seduce her teacher. (I grew up with people like that unfortunately.) Don't watch it if you've got big buttons on stuff like that. No real nudity but a big taboo subject.

I can usually watch a certain amount a day in-between studying but I've recently upped the study time so I've wisely dropped the amount of anime watched to a minimum.
