Make sure your hands are free while watching this episode; you’re going to need them. I’ll include episode notes after the break.
Episode 148: Torrent
Shion’s ninja signs go in the order of snake-dragon-rabbit-tiger. The strange word you’ll hear her say, “crank-in”, is wasei-eigo, a loanword that has no original meaning. It signifies the very first scene recorded for a movie, and apparently comes from when film cameras had to be cranked. In English the equivalent term I found is kick-off. If you read this before watching the episode, then get to it already.
