hey, i love these things of elements i know many versions, and had my own... see : water,fire,wind,earth,ice,thunder,time,space,light,darkness,sound,technology,ilusion, wild *, and void * wild represents plants,flowers,animals and fungi... wild life
see other version if you're interested: common: fire,water,wind and earth chinese 5: water.fire.earth.wood and metal chinese 8 water.fire.wind.earth.mountains.sky.moon and thunder
people think ice should'nt be a element, nevermind to them. ice could be a element, as he doesnt need to represent "frozen water" and yes "coldness" and coldness isnt related to water, also , the ice is common in the universe, and water doesnt, so ice is more aceptable as an element than water...
Actually,I think the element Ice shouldn`t be there.The way I know it,there are seven elements - Fire,Water,Earth,Wind,Lightning,Light and Darkness.The element Ice is (how should I say it) a part of the Water element (just like Metal is a part of Earth).Y`know what I mean ?
Yes I do, but the element of ice in what i was thinking was more of cold than frozen water, where as fire is more of heat, because when you heat something up enough, it tends to combust and catch fire.
Inazuma 電 can actually be used by itself to be translated as Lightning. Combining both 閃電 (shǎndiàn)is used in Mandarin, but in Japanese, they sometimes use 雷 (kaminari) to represent lightning bolt when it actually translates as thunder. Hey, if you want me to, I can give you the pronunciations for the Han characters, both in Mandarin and Japanese, that is if you want.
they are chinese, believe me. Most of chinese symbols are similar to those of japanese. I'm researching them right now . It's very surprising how similar Chinese and Japanese are. There is only some difference though. For example, the way to write water in chinese is the one above. In japanese, it is kind od the same but there isn't a stroke on the very left and the small dot (also on the left) is written above 7 like stroke. Just a few difference, but both chinese and japanese writing looks the same
like i said, there are some differences. The main elements are very similar in both languages, but some differences allows you to tell which language it is in. However, when it comes to more complicated ones like lightning, they are really different
No. The Kanji for water is exactly the same as the Han Zi above. The only difference is how each country pronounces it. It's the Ice elemental that looks different; in Kanji there is only one stroke to the top left, and the far bottom left stroks is absent. For electricity, the Chinese simplify it by eliminating certain strokes until you get this...电. In Kanji, they use the older symbol 電. In China, they still recognize the older 電 but they also use the simpler way in everyday writing. Other than that, every character in Kanji has originated in China, hence the very name Kanji is derived from Han Zi (writing from the Han province in China).
