91  General / El-Hazard Online / The SECOND radio drama on: February 23, 2005, 07:18:28 PM
Does anyone have any info about this?
I have tried to get the musics or even the cd, but with no success....  :bawl
As EHOL doesn't have any info about this cd, here are some pics!!

That's what I have so far....
I don't even have the tracks' info....  ^^;

Wasn't she in the radio drama or something?

Not on the first one... But maybe on the second one.  :) All I know about the second radio drama is its cover...  ^^; I don't really know the contents.

The only problem with that is that "Sher" (typically spelled as "Shere" or "Sheer," due to pronunciation) is Hindi, not Arabic; and isn't pronounced the same way.

I see... I made the relation, because here in Portugal we spell Sher Khan the same way japanese spell Shera-Shera... Maybe we don't do it correctly....  ^^;

"Shaila" is a Hindu name meaning "living in mountains," which is actually pretty funny. The closest Arabic name is probably "Salah" (or "Sahlah"), which means something like "smooth" or "soft." (...heh.)

Oh, yeah. Another contender: Ephraim's daughter was named Shera, which is Aramaic (and is a generic name that refers to a female relative).

So, in summary, Shera-Shera could be mountain tiger or tiger relative or mountain relative... :) Ok... Maybe I went too far with this....  ^^;

That's very interesting actually! Probably because of the influence from Portuguese missionaries visiting Japan in the 16th Century, some Portuguese words find common usage in modern Japanese. Like "pan" (bread). I've also heard that supposedly "arigato" is Portuguese in origin.

Pan (bread) comes from the portuguese word po (also bread). As far as arigato is concerned, I don't think it has a portuguese relation (as far as I can see  ^^; ) because "Thank you" in portuguese is Obrigado....

I found something related to Shera-Shera (or Shayla-Shayla), but I'm not sure if this is meaningful data or not....  ^^;


This site is closed, but Google has a comment on it saying: "He left home at an early age and took service under Bahar Khan Lohani, Sultan of Bihar, who gave him the title of Sher Khan (meaning Tiger Lord) for his ... "
So, the word Sher would mean tiger in some arabic language. This meaning fits on her, in terms of temper, don't you think?  ;)

Yeah, all the kids from Japan have Japanese names surely, but aren't names like Shayla-Shayla spelled out phonetically, suggesting that they're "not really" Japanese even if based on Japanese names? I'm just curious.

I don't know the meaning of Shera-Shera, but Afura is sometimes used here in Portugal (as Afra) for a girl's name. It's from the Hebrew word Aphurah that means "dust".
Most people probably already know this one, but oh well-- "Ifurit" (ee-fur-eet) is literally how the Japanese would pronounce "efreet" (or "ifrit"), which are spirits from Arabic mythology. There's no special term for a female genie, but "Efreeta" (which becomes "Ifurita") seems like a logical extension.

I've seen some Japanese sites actually just call her "Efreeta," which is more technically correct, I guess; but it's just weird. *chuckles*

Also, I seen this one out (in some encyclopedia on my town's public library some years ago). And I do agree that the correct pronouciation for Ifurita would be Efreeta (or Ifrita) because the japanese do have a tendency to almost omit the "u"s on the words. Same happens with Afura: When you hear them speaking, it almost sounds Afra.
And Diva is the Latin and Italian word for "goddess", the feminine form of the Latin word divus.

In the portuguese language the word diva exists. It is a name to illustrate a person (only women) that is either beautiful or that has a very important and historical place in a certain area. (e.g. Maria Callas is a diva as far as opera is concerned) However, this word isn't very common... (I'll see the best meaning on a dictionary and I'll post it here).

It's from an El-Hazard text book I have (vol.1 of 2 vols.) that (I think -> I don't really know japanese enough to confirm this ^^; ) tells a Wanderers' style alternative story. One peculiar aspect of these books is the fact that all 3 Ifuritas :o (that you can see on page 62 of El-Hazard Illustrations - 1997 or in one of the pull-out posters of the El-Hazard AIC comics anthology) enter in this story!
These 2 books are not comics, they're some sort of novel...
I'll post some more info (Images) shortly! ;)

Actually (Saucer correct me if I'm wrong) I think that Shinkon Gattai Godannar isn't hentai... ^^;
At least, it's at the same level of Love Hina, in terms of "female graphics design style".  :)

I'll try to work on the rest of the text later. I'm way overdue to work on some EH translations anyway.

Thank you so much.... If you translate it completely I'll make a translated version of it in Photoshop and post it here.  ^_^V

I saw a sample (shrunk and water-marked) image of that fan art on eBay, awhile back.

Now that you mension it, I found this on google (don't remember how...  ^^; ) sometime ago, and the page corresponding to the image, was redirecting to an error page on eBay (I think).... Now I can understand why.
If memory serves, it's supposed to be some Real-Life actress or model doing a hentai cos-play of Shayla.  I can't remember who the woman was, though.

Then... I guess we can't actually call it a fanart...  ^^; Can we?  :)
101  General / El-Hazard Online / Re: i am french and you? i am pristess of muldum on: January 02, 2005, 07:01:13 PM
quand a mes recherche de photos de shaellah et makoto oui je ne lache pas l affaire et en plus j insiste meme des fan art me ferais super plaisir

If you want to see any Shera-Shera fan art... take a look at this... (I didn't draw it ehehehh  ^^; )

I hope this isn't TOO erotic (Robert or Tim please accept this to the fan art section).
102  General / El-Hazard Online / The profile of Jinnai, needing translation! on: January 02, 2005, 06:30:16 PM
Can anyone translate this? It seems funny, but I don't know japanese.... Robert or Tim: you can accept this as a contribution.

104  General / El-Hazard Online / Re: El-Hazard on Orkut on: October 03, 2004, 02:43:49 PM
Was I called in?  ;)

Unless the Portuegese speakers desire sharing with English fans.

Anyway, if Helio agrees, we can make an efford.
105  General / El-Hazard Online / Re: New website Im starting on: September 01, 2004, 05:45:28 PM
Well.... Good luck! I look foward to see it!  ;)

I also have some Ffics on my EH database, but they weren't written by me... If you want them, tell me.  ^_^V
