Funky Names in Gall Force

Post by Tachyon » Mon Feb 26, 2007 4:06 am

The names for the planet destroyers in Gall Force 2 and 3 seem odd. The Solnoid planet destroyer is named バーミン [ba-min] and the Paranoid planet destroyer is named ファンガス [fangasu]. Those look like "vermin" and "fungus" to me! Is this some kind of anti-war protest?

Maybe, but they may have no deep meaning behind the name either. They might just think the names sound fit with them. :wink:

You got it right, Tachyon. They're definitely "Vermin" and "Fungus". I'm not sure that it's a moral commentary so much as an attempt to conjure up images of plague, contagion, and general necrotization.
