There's no spaces in Japanese, so it doesn't really matter.


Kunrei-shiki romanization (the official romaji of Japan dictated by the Minstry of Education) requires spaces between romanized Japanese and particles (and also kyoiku kanji also have written spaces).

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs dictates Hebon-shiki, and road signs are rendered in Hebon-shiki.

If your complaint is not following "official Japanese", then it's strange that you didn't pick up on the abuse of spelling:

under Kunrei-shiki.

Sorry guys, mostly relying on online translation tools.

No need to apologise, there was nothing wrong with what you wrote.

Out of interest, is it common for native writers not to use spaces when when romanizing? I have a guy who does a lot of English to Japanese translations for me and his use of spaces to separate particles is very inconsistent. He says that's quite common for everyday (non formal) work.

This is kind of heartwarming. TOUMA is happy to see Fang fan art.

Well fuck me.

It turns out the answer to this mystery was in a book I'd owned for years.

Sonic Jam Official Guide

(Special thanks to Black Squirrel - I was looking through this book again to answer his question about Mecha Sonic in the "other knowledge" topic. I caught this page and ran it through the Google Translate app on my phone.)

Out of interest, could you post the Google Translate text? Thanks! (My phone is too old for me to check!)

No need for shoddy translation apps!

A wolf and gerboa hybrid that appeared in Sonic Triple Trouble. Fang the Sniper. As a treasure hunter, his aim is the chaos emeralds.
He's cunning.

No prob. Also, the paragraph on that page about Bark and Bean calls Bean a duck so I guess his species just depends on what guide you read.

So, how did a big wolf and a tiny rodent make a little Fang? Inquiring minds want to know.

The species mixup is kind've ironic really, because Amy Rose doesn't really look much like a hedgehog (now, that is) - though of course in Sonic CD she had her "hair"/spines more like Sonic's (ish)

And speaking of species, I wonder why the Chao aren't like any creature on Earth? I mean, since they usually base all the character on actual ones; I guess they borrowed the idea of these creatures from Pokémon?

Probably because the Chao and Chaos are linked, and are anthropomorphized elements, not animals.
