View Full Version : I finally found the romaji that makes up 今幸福's name!

It's ima koufuku! 今 (ima) means "now", and 幸福 means happiness. So together, roughly translated, they would be happy now! And it's thanks to a kanji learning book I picked up yesterday. Now if you use SCIM or UIM, you can type his name rather than copy and paste it!

I just thought it would be a bit easier for people to type it rather than have to copy and paste his username every time they wanted to refer to him.

Google translate revealed that secret to me months ago. ;)

I wonder if it's meant to be pronounced in an angry, sarcastic tone. "Happy now?" :|

And dragos, I almost didn't recognize you with your new avatar.

I think it was called "A guide to japanese writing, third edition" or something.

Tbh, this has always bugged me cause the grammar is so awkward. On the other hand, its a username and English usernames are not expected to be sentences either. Its like somebody with the user name "HappyNow" except its a foreign language so its more noticeable.
