Zettai Unmei Mokushiroku

Kanji are back. Many thanks to xaosenkosmos for providing image hosting during problems with my hosting service, which is current being weird. Even their main site is giving a 'sorry, we'll be back Real Soon Now' message. They were trying to migrate everyone to faster servers, and it looks like they ran into problems.


 

ZETSU
tae(ru), ta(tsu)
meaning: cease, sever, end

絶望 == zetsubou == despair
絶対 運命 黙示録 == zettai unmei mokushiroku == Absolute Destiny Apocalypse


Left radical is 'thread' (糸), right is 'color' (色). The right radical is actually a miscopying of 'sword' (刀) and 'bending body'. This character originally referred to 'cutting threads'; now means 'cutting' in a broader sense. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Sever colorful threads.'
