If you're familiar with Sailor Moon and any Romance language, remembering the days of the week are easy.
Sailor Mars uses fire, and Tuesday in Spanish is Martes, which is the day of Mars.
Sailor Mercury uses water, and Wednesday in Spanish is Miércoles, which is the day of Mercury.
i dropped my mixtape on tuesday while i was in japan and they renamed tuesday to fire day to honor the litness of the mixtape. i tried so hard for that joke hah
Does anybody have an explaination on the origin of Japanese day names? Would be interesting, specially seeing how they include kanji related to the elements
Why don't they use the kanji 曜 instead of writing out よう in the word 火曜日(かようび)?
I am having trouble hearing the pronounciation of the fire kanji, can someone help me please?
The way I remember is: Tue - Wed - Thr - Fri 火 - 水 - 木 - 金 fire - water - wood - metal The elements increase in solidity/density: fire is gaseous, water is a liquid, wood is a soft solid relative to metal, which is hard.
why aren't they using the kanji for you as that's how the days of the week are written? I'm really confused by the use of the kanji for eat but not drink for example. It seems very random.
