::::There's a slight difference, tho: for Usagi's pun, changing one kanji ("no") turns her whole name into one that has a meaningful & coherent description about her origin; for Tetsurou's pun, changing one kanji ("tetsu") turns that kanji in his name into one that has an ''Iron Chef'' reference. Anyway, I agree that it's still a possible pun. --[[User:210|210]] 21:00, 1 May 2007 (MST)

I'm not sure how the character's name was officially written, but can't "tetsu" mean "iron"? Another Iron Chef reference? Kerochan no Miko 18:08, 27 April 2007 (MST)

You're right. Actually "Tetsurou" (鉄郎; lit. "iron son"; meaning "the son as tough as iron") is a common (but now albeit outdated) male given name. If you add this note into the trivia section, I'll add the corresponding kanji when I can. --210 19:14, 27 April 2007 (MST)
It's not "iron" now, but it could still be a pun, tho albeit far-fetched. --210 19:28, 1 May 2007 (MST)
