Also my friend speaks japanese and translated one page of what gantz was saying and there was only "the equivelent of backward letters" as he put it, not leet speak.
    Backwards letters is Japanese leet.

    Leet was invented in Counter Strike? I doubt that, what with it being around before HL, if my memory is correct.

    Kanji. Hiragana, Katagana<All 3 is the Japanese Alphabet>
    Kanji is Chinese <Japanese had Incorporated the Chinese Character into their Writing>
    Hiragana <Spelling for traditional Japanese>
    Katagana<Foreign Words Alphabet>
    I think that is the 3 of them. I dunno why i Brought em up anyway..

    Well, if you're going to include Kanji, don't forget Romanji.

    Thumbs down romanji doesn't count!

    kanji is chinese characters, but it has been adopted into the japanese language for many, many years

    Romanji is a way us gaijin use to learn japanese without learning te alphabet, to make it easier for us - IT DOES NOT qualify as a japanese alphabet as kanji does

    Yeah exactly, so translated "this way" wouldn't be "+h1z w4y" it would just be "thiz way" somthing close to it atleast just with more backward letters.

    That was a flame? I'm barely lukewarm.

    Anyway, from what I've seen, Romanji is used a fair bit in Japan. Not as much as Kanji, but it's still there, so I would say it's not just for us to learn Japanese.

    No, that would be a LITERAL translation. What scanlators do is a THEMATIC translation...conveying the idea rather than the exact sentence. It's a superior method of translating; leet is perfect for Gantz.
