    It'd be hard to walk with one's claws out all the time. Cat's claws retract; they usually only use them when they need to fight or climb a tree. Dog claws aren't retractable, and can break and splinter and cause the animal pain if not properly taken care of.

    Angel was sort of cute (in a disgusting way) licking the inside of her nostril like Stitch. Now technically, she's his "cousin", as all the other experiments are...but with dogs it's not uncommon to breed together siblings and even parents and children to keep the bloodlines pure.

    The trick of reversing the siren's song to break her spell was also used in the "Succubus" episode of South Park.

    As for any change in Angel's personality in "Snafu" (which I have yet to see)--who knows what Gantu does to those experiments he captures behind the scenes? She might have been too disspirited to make an escape attempt. Or maybe she had a serious case of Stockholm syndrome.

    Stitch manages fine.

    No she's not.

    She dislikes 625 quite openly, and obviously isn't fond of Gantu either. And she doesn't look particularly 'abused', since she's in good enough spirits to blow raspberries at her captors. Yeah, big escape attempt, way to go. You can apparently break things open with your head, but sitting around waiting for Stitch to fail to save you and sticking your tongue out at passers by is just fine and dandy. *sarky*

    Yeah. Angel seemed fine to me.

    And I've said this like a million times already but-

    THE EXPERIMENTS ARE NOT BIOLOGICAL COUSINS. They only have enough DNA in common to make them the same species (I'm guessing). Stitch calls them 'cousins' becaue for some reason he's still obsessing over not having a family even though he's got Lilo and Jumba and Plekley and Nani now.

    Yeah, i hate it when people say they're related. It gets annoying that they don't understand the difference between biological families and hawaiian kinship.

    Exactly, Lilo and Stitch call them cousins because that's what they do in Hawaii or something like that... And he has no family...

    That's Jumba's fault so blame him.

    BLame Jumba? For what? The experiemnts were supposed to wreak havoc, not be family-people. And Stitch has a perfectly good family already, and it includes JUMBA, NOT ANGEL. T_T

    It would've been better if Jumba just created Stitch. No other experiments. Then he wouldn't be having problems about his 'family' of cousins.

    Well, i guess he wanted each experiment to destroy one single thing each.

    I hate to disapoint all you Angel haters out there but, I had heard that Angel will make an appearance in Leroy & Stitch. I'm not quite certain if she'll have a big part or a small part. She might have a medium-sized part in it. She does say some Earth words such as "Ohana" and "Love". I heard this from another forum. He or she had confirmed the fact that the film was already released in Japan, but saw the English translation I think. Anyways, to those who like her, even though her backwards song is the same as the evil version, could you come up with an idea on what the English translation of her good song would've been like if it did.

    A. We already know what it is, B. I also did my own version.

    Okay, well, promise not to laugh too hard.

    Before we knew the real 'translation' I worked out something of my own because I used it for dramatic effect in my fanfic.

    "Acoota chi-meeto"
    The first word sounded to me like something to do with hearing, so I suspected it was 'listen to me' or something along those lines. The first part of the real translation is 'Heed me', so I might have been close.
    I've heard the word 'chimeto' used before and it always meant something like 'come here' or 'come back' or just 'move so you are in closer proximity to me'. So in this context, it might mean 'come back', since Angel can only revert you evil, not change what was always good.
    So we have 'Listen (to me) and come back (to what you once were).

    "Igatta no mootah"
    When I'd heard 'Eegata' before it meant look out, or direct your attention over there, but I couldn't come up with much here.

    "Naggatong nala"
    I didn't know the 'naggatong' was spelled that way so I thought she was saying 'naga', so I translated it as a sentence based around a negative: 'There's no other way' or 'You have no choice'.

    "Itume te dooka"
    Itume sounds just like when used in 'meega-o-itume' which is, of course, telling someone to get away. So I figured this was a mirror version of the second line, making it instead of 'back to evil', 'away from goodness'.

    So my complete verison was:

    "Pay attention. You will return to your evil ways.
    You no longer care for any others but yourself.
    This is the only way - you have no choice. You are an unconscious mind.
    Forget the goodness you have aquired."

    No, I meant her backwards song. Not her evil song.

    ...Well I didn't think you meant that, because it doesn't make any sense. They're meaningless backwards words.

    If it was up to me, o'course, I would have made 2 versions of lyrics for the evil and good songs, one in major and one in minor. The real version switches between the two, and I think it would have been more effective to make 2 versions. Not that the 'characters' would be hearing anything differently, but still, it's actually believable to have proper words rather than turning someone good with gibberish.

    I think that's better than the actual transtalation!
