that's actually smart

Ni ju ichi
2 10 1
Two ten one.

Yeah, it makes sense, the number after tells what type it is (if it's a 10, or a 100, etc).

ahh looked wrong, but you get the idea yeah

It's actually san-byaku(300). Almost the same with 600(rop-pyaku)and 800(hap-pyaku). The rest is simply yon-hyaku, go-hyaku etc. What's interesting is that when you count higher, to like a million and stuff, it gets utterly insane. I think hyaku-man is a million. That would mean "a hundred ten thousand" if directly translated into English... Imagine a numer like 2 233 654. That would be, in Japanese: ni-hyaku-ni juu-san-man san-zen rop-pyaku go jū yon. God damn....

Oh yeah, I always forgot that part, sorry!

And they actually have a word for like "A million" and "a billion", but they rarely use it.
Or so my japanese teacher told me.

Also, what is this 25 breaks in a comment ******** ?
User avatar #131 to #120 - randomlyici (11/14/2012) [-]
dude, it's "Shichi" for 7 and "hachi" for 8. They don't say it with "shi" or" si". In fact, they don't even have "si".

"that is the way you say them, not the spelling"

User avatar #139 to #137 - randomlyici (11/14/2012) [-]
I know it's not the spelling. you say "shiCHI" not "shisi". "haCHI" not hashi. If you went around saying it the other way, you would look like a complete idiot.

ichigo does not mean 15 =.=" 'Ichi' is 1 and 'Go' is 5, but 10 is 'Ju', so you'd say 15 as 'Ju-go' not ichigo.

Ichigo only means Strawberry

I agree with you there, his name isn't fifteen, but I think it would still translate to one-five.
He has a fifteen hanging on his door and sometimes wears a shirt with the number fifteen written on it as well, which I find amusing.

Thats how I imagine a female Saiyan about to go SSJ would look like.

It does not mean 15. 15 is "jyuu go". Ichigo actually means strawberry.
