TELETOON (ended 2007)
I was looking through some back posts in this thread, and regarding Quake's secret, I always had the theory that perhaps he was dead. Since he was around the same age as the Lost Mariner, who's more than likely a ghost, I bet Quake might be a ghost as well. I'm also half starting to beleive my brother's nonsense theory that Quake is actually evil and wants to destroy all life. Kidding. That can't be true.
Speaking of which, I still haven't gotten used to using "Quake" as his name. He'll always be Brade to me. Any reasonikng behind some of the name changes? I understand Lemin to Kati, because that was to create a pun, but I don't get the rest. What really baffles me is using Invectids instead of Insectors, because weren't they Insectors in the books?
Now I'm very curious about Quake. Initially, I actually thought his name was Blade, based on the pronunciation. It wasn't until I actually read somewhere that it was spelled with an "r" that I figured it out. If you did name him Blade, it wouldn't have made a difference. Nothing wrong with Quake though, except for the fact that I initially had no idea who they were talking about in episode 30.
I don't think Aqune means anything, actually. I always assumed it was French or something, since I know Spider Riders airs in French too. I don't think I've ever seen a "q" in a Japanese word. Aqune is usually written in a way which romanizes to Akuune. In that case, I'm still not sure if it means anything. I can't find a literal translation for "Aku" but I know it's often used on the start of words to imply evil. (ie: akuma- demon) Actually, I think it can be translated to evil by itself. But then, Aqune isn't really evil, so I don't know about that. I just sometimes think that's what it means jokingly. So I'll stick with my theory that maybe it's French. I put way too much thought into these things.
hi, i thought hero quake was a hero...? not evil...
I think he meant that my first theory was close. At least I hope so. If Quake was evil though, admittedly I'd die laughing.
u think we get 2 c hunter eat corona nasty cooking? she said it's something new, i wondering if it's something she can actually cook, that is tasteful... lol...
Probably not. I think Hunter would die, and then the show would have to end.
i have read the books... they r pretty different from the show... but i notice some chapters in the books has the same title as the show... im decated 2 the spider riders show/books also... more 2 the show because i hate reading books...
Got another question.
Were there any significant changes between the original and dub scripts for episodes 27 onward? Obviously, I wouldn't know because they haven't aired in Japan yet, but I'm just a bit curious.
This is a really dumb question, but if Corona and Aqune are sisters, why does their hair-color differ so much? My only guess is that one of their parents had yellow hair and the other had purple.
Also, is there anyone back in the outer world worried about Hunter? He has been gone for quite some time.
