In Korean Seiryu is known as Chungryong which means the exact same thing, Blue Dragon.

"Blue" (though in truth the word describes a greensih-blue type colour) can be sei, shou (third time I've seen the word shou as well, each time meaning something different!), ao and aoi. Sparrow can be jaku, jan, shaku, saku, suzume and zaku. For both these words, these are the same kanji too. You an get different kanji and have another whole range of words.
You get the same thing in Korean as well. Yong is typically the Korean word for dragon but in this case he's known as Chungryong. He uses a different word for blue as well, cheong over parang which is the typical word for blue though sometimes parang is also used for green and now that I think about it I've forgotten what green is in Korean... >_>

Wow, I've always seen "sei" translated as "soul" or something of the type. Hm. That's really interesting to know some of the different forms of the word. ^_^

i had to do a research paper on african religion and i slightly remeber something about the translation of the black guys zanpaktou having a relation to anastia teh spider whoe web was so thick if caught in it u would be blind and unable to move
nah, in Tousen's zampaktou's bankai affects all your five senses, but you are able to move.
Actually I think that Tousen zampaktou is earth
1) His shikai is spikes coming out of earth
2) His bankai, kinda resembles me like being buried alive: You cannot hear, smell or hear anything but you can still feel touches and pain...
Also I think it was said in manga that Aizen zampaktu is water type.
But didn't Aizen tricked all the Vice-Captains when he showed his zanpakuto's "ability"?

IF it is that strong, id like to know how much stronger it will get. and since they already show us shikai and bankai, i wonder what they will come up next.
