1 Use Romaji. Other languages are accepted when the original name or phrase is in foreign, ie; Death Note, "The World, Jikan ga tomare!" (Dio), Stella ()
2 Only names, objects, places, songs or otherwise phrases related to, iconic, or otherwise featured in anime/manga/LN/live action culture, examples; Shima Pan (object), Melon Pan (object/food), Heavy Object (LN name), Jotaro Kujo (Character name), Comiket (place) etc. Actor names, director names, band names (ie:l'arc en ciel, Ari Project) or even scanlating teams are accepted xD
3 You may start with the last syllabe of the last word as is written, or you can use a syllabe that is almost phonetically identical to the last syllabe of the last word but is spelled differently (for example shi>shii, phon>fon), and if you desire you may also start with the last word of the name or sentence, just try to stick to syllabes as much as possible in order to keep it interesting, like i wrote before, this game is just for fun.
4 If the name or phrase is in english making the last syllabe hard to discern you can use romaji or broken english to make it easier on yourself (ie Quick Start!! = qui-ku star-to)
5 Try not to repeat what has been posted already, if the thread goes beyond 2 pages no one will expect you to read all the thread (laughs), but at least read the shiritori words of the page you are on if you will post, also no using the same word again lol xD (Ie: haruhi endless loop of people saying "Nanana" or "FonFon")
6 Unlike in regular Shiritori, no one looses here, you can end with N or whatever, it will continue until people are tired of it.
7 Not really a rule, but if your reference is a phrase or something obscure try to explain shortly in parenthesis the origin or format. Ie: Quick Start!! (manga), Touma! Onakatsuita! (Index's kime seifu xD, Toaru)
So it begins...
Quick Start!! (manga)
To or start/tart i guess. xP
Funny that we are on ftv and i start with a manga, kind of like how Misaka imouto wanted to name the black cat "dog" x3
