Name

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.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 22:42, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

For now I think we should go with Mangastream's translation, "God of Good Fortune Technique".--Deva 27 22:51, 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.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(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 Nadeshiko Village Symbol (Talk) 06:12, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

There's a third Kanji missing, it looks like 莆, but by god, I can't find it >.< Seelentau 愛 18:00, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

Latest chapter

Why do you not put this jutsu in Hashirama's infobox as well as in the chapter's debut section? --Axel Carrozzo (talk) 16:41, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

We did. It just takes a while to show up.--71.71.58.231 (talk) 17:25, February 21, 2013 (UTC)
