Even uniquer! (Yes, I know that that’s not a word.)

This should look a little familiar, but there’s a twist:


Literally: empty – before – cut off – after

Alternately: Unique in all of history. Never before, and never again. Something so amazing, or so horrible, that the like of it is unheard-of in the past… and furthermore, it’s not likely to ever be repeated. If you’re talking about something in the past, then perhaps it’s something that was unprecedented at the time and hasn’t been reproduced yet.

Orange on orange!

Apparently this phrase is the title of an opening theme for the Dragonball anime. It seems fitting.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
