Should the Megaliba have its own page? Jirarudan's Flying Palace doesn't. --Musashi 14:39, 26 July 2008

If this page should be kept [which is fairly doubtful in my mind] it needs to be renamed. "Megaliba" is a terrible transliteration for メガリバ. It says right on the page, that the ship is sometimes called "Mega Reverse"; in this case, "liba" is short for reverse, only it doesn't look very much like it is to anyone who doesn't speak Japanese. In Japanese, リ is either li or ri, the latter of which sounds very much like the "re" in reverse. Likewise, バ is usually ba, but because of the lack of a V sound in Japanese, B is often used instead. Putting that together, "Reverse", transliterated into Japanese, would be リバース, so clearly "liba" is simply incorrect. LostDrewid 02:58, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
- We haven't seen the dub yet, so we don't know. And yes, it is "Me-ga-ri-ba". We just assume it is an L sound until corrected.--RexRacer -talk 03:01, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
I may know how to find out this ship's dub name...
I've tried Mailbag but they ignored my question. There is, however, a new hope - the Movie 11 Manga is gonna be released in US soon (I don't know the exact date, though). Someone must simply buy it. I've seen the Japanese version and it mentions Megariba's name clearly. So, I think it's very likely that US version will reveal it. --Maxim 15:36, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
