Kurokishi? Black knight?

Post by Tora » Thu Aug 19, 2021 1:24 pm

I have a question. In first volume (chapter 7) when General Hayabusa arrives when the Kagerou Clan is attacked by Gama Clan by the Flying Ant troop, the human with Hayabusa is calling himself "Kurokishi" (jap. 黒騎士). I look it up and it's meaning is "Black knight". So I'm also wondering what he might call himself in the Finnish translation.
Wait for me; Terrex, Baghéera, Nokorde, Smulan, when its my time I come

He's never mentioned by name, but he does refer to the suit of armor he's wearing as "the armor of the black horseman". Which is admittedly a reasonable translation as his original Japanese line "この黒騎士のヨロイ" (kono kurokishi no yoroi) could be translated as either "the armor of I, Kurokishi" or "this armor of the black knight", depending on how you interpret it.

Thanks.

Even though When Gamu calls him out for going after Ryuugen who's blind? Calling him Kurokishi?

Gamu simply calls him "coward" there. I assume it's for space reasons because the speech bubble was too small to properly fit "musta ratsumies" ("black horseman") in it.

Hehe, could be XD
I put it as Kurokishi on Wiki, and do the same as with Kaibutsu, Banken, and Wakagashira; not his name just... something XD
