    Default Honorifics

    I like to try to remember the honorifics each character uses for each other but Orihime uses so many it is hard to rember them all. Anyways what Honorifics does she use for Ishida and Chad?

    Honorifics are used to give someone either a title or a polite way to address people. For example, -san, -kun, -chan, -sama, -han, -tan, and the list goes on.

    Inoue uses -kun for her school mates.

    there is one more honorific although it is kinda an insult. it is bozu which is something you would call your little brother. roughly translated it means twerp or brat. san is generic chan is more little kid and girly. kun is normally more masculine. sempai is someone older then or higher up the ladder in wherever you know them. kohai is really the opposite of sempai. sama is a term of great respsect. now not using a suffix usually means family or lover although some friends are so close they lose the suffix it is a giant insult if you dont use one without permission so imo dont take the chance. i know that wasnt about inoue and chads suffix but i thought this would give ppl a good idea about things.
    nobody is perfect im a nobody therefor i am perfect

    -chan can also be used for girls in general. -kun can also be used for colleagues of any gender. Senpai and kouhai are... well... as I've spelt them. Also, -dono means lord.

    Actually, I've kind of forgotten myself, but how does she call Chad? I mean, does she call him by his last name, or by Chad?

    She just calls him Chad... I don't know if that's consistent throughout the series though...

    Too bad. because I was hoping there was a website out there with a lot of funny panels like it. Kudos on the great joke.

    I'm not sure what honorific she uses for Chad, but I know she calls Ishida "Ishida-kun"; however it’s been awhile since I've read the manga, so I may be mistaken.
