    Hey guys, are any of you any good at writing in japanese? Because I seriously need someone to write "Wax on - Wax off" in japanese for me... And not only in the japanese language, but with japanese letters too. Oh, and if you can write "Mad Hippo" as well, that would be killer!

    Please help out, I am really desperate here!

    Oh ok, hmm... I would prefer it in japanese, but if nothing else comes up, I suppose that's better than nothing :)

    Thanks for the offer anyway!

    I suppose you can't do it by hand and scan it or something?

    ok, "Wax on - Wax off" in Japanese..

    just the sound;
    ワックス・オン、ワックス・オフ
    in the movie Karate Kid;
    ワック スかける、ワックスとる

    "Mad Hippo" in Japanese

    there are some words for MAD in Japanese,
    気違い   (similar to insane)
    狂った   (...rabid)
    狂気の   (...frantic)
    怒れる   (...furious)

    HIPPO is
    カバ (katakana)
    河馬 (kanji)

    so combine them, like
    狂ったカバ
    狂気の河馬

    :D hope these answers can satisfy you Nefelim!  :wave:
    BTW these people here who tried to help him/her out are so nice and good to see it :headbang:

    No no, it is just going to be written next to a picture of a hippo with weird eyes :)

    But I couldn't see the text you wrote, it just looked like a lot of squares on my screen, so I installed japanese text support, and it seems to work a little better. I took a screenshot of how it looks on my computer now, can you tell me if the "wax on - wax off" is right?

    You see the squares in "mad" and "hippo", that's how it all looked on my screen... maybe I need some other text support on my computer as well, but I don't know what :erk:
    Anyway, thank you so very much for being kind enough to help me with this! It is really cool of you! :headbang:

    Does Okinawa have their own language?

    I would go with rabid hippo, myself.

    And here's the result of the Mad (insane) hippo:

    This is only a prototype, but it is one in a line of t-shirts that I'm designing. Me and some friends are hopefully starting a webshop with clothes and rare albums in the near future, and since import is expensive we decided to design our own clothes... maybe it's a crazy idea, but hey, it's fun :p
