Why? If Sailor Moon can sell here, Ikkyu could do alright with the kids
too. It may be too tame and too brainy for the new millenium kids. Kids

That's him, doing his brain-activation thing again (a little chessy by
today's standard). How come you always have the right links on hand?

Which means "one rest" or a little rest? The 70s translators managed to
translate more than half of the jokes and wordplays from Japanese to
Chinese because traditional Japanese contains so much Kanji.
