We're back!

I've never really had a solid grasp on who the dragon is or what he represents, either (re: the Sunday comic). At least partially nature, I guess, but he's prominently figured somehow itn Japanese folklore, right? But not a god, exactly?

Tough to suss out.

(Let's see if I can make a post without it becoming four phantom duplicates.)

Hopefully Nana's magic can keep the forums and website working =D

Please kindly ignore this unintentional double post.

(Which I tried to delete, guys. You're funny, I promise to manically press the delete button the next time I make a double post.)

Only because it's not quadruple. ;-P

Anyway, yes, very striking image here, and yay for Nana. Is sheusing some sort of magical afterburner?

If so, I *want* one.

Basically, Dragon is the embodiment of all Eastern Religion.

You could have deleted it before anybody else posted after you, and none of us would have been the wiser.

In case anyone was wondering how to pronounce it, 魔法 (enlarged to see the detail) is まほう or "mahou", like mar-hor. Witch/wizard is (although there may be alternate words, kinda like how "warlock" and "sorcerer" are similar) 魔法使い , "mahou-tsukai" and literally means "magic user". People may be familiar with 魔法少女, "mahou-shoujo" from anime, meaning "magical girl". We could call Nanna "mahou-obaa" to mean "magical granny" haha.

Apologies to anyone who already knows all that and didn't need a lesson.
