I just watched A Whisker Away for the second time with the kids. We all love it. But they, assuming I speak fluent Japanese, started asking what the names meant and why they were called different names all the time.
I don’t speak fluent Japanese so I did some handwaving about last names being used more often than here in Sweden (we go by first name almost all the time, so even Harry Potter is confusing in this regard). Could you help me out?
Especially Miyo Sasaki, why is her nickname Muge and what has that to do with Gaga and enigmatic?
The “hinode sunrise attack” is a pun, right? In that case it’s the first Japanese pun I get!
Thanks in advance!
