Where did the name "Palm Technique" come from? I ran a search and hotei did not turn up as a translation for palm. I was thinking that this technique should be called Hotei Technique similar to the Hōbi Technique or the Byakugo (well until we got the translation). Hotei, or "Laughing Buddha" is also one of the seven gods of fortune which coincidentally if you count, there are seven arms emerging from the ground. Aside from that "palms" is kind of outside Hashirama's naming style.--Cerez365™(talk) 22:42, February 20, 2013 (UTC)
- I'm not sure at all. All seven of them collectively are the gods of good fortune yet why it'd be called Hotei (wealth and contentment) alone is kind of a mystery to me because he has nothing to do with hands. Either one does seem okay, as long as we are not using "palms". At times like these we could really do with our resident translator; he enjoyed things like these.--Cerez365™(talk) 23:42, February 20, 2013 (UTC)
I'd just keep with the rōmaji for the time being given that both scans at least agree on that. Even so, if the kanji are those of the deity "Hotei", as its an actual name then I'd presume it would potentially have to remain in the technique name much like Amaterasu, etc. (especially as 布袋 literally mean "cloth sack") Blackstar1 (talk) 00:23, February 21, 2013 (UTC)
- The kanji could be either "補体" which means "complement" or "布袋" which means "cloth sack". —Shakhmoot (Talk) 06:12, February 21, 2013 (UTC)
