number codes

These are the most common of the number codes used by the international fandom, with some explanations about how the numbers came to be.

*Information gratefully borrowed from here.

*Number codes are repeated in the character profiles.

The Japanese use TWO number systems, and both are utilized in manga/anime code names.

STANDARD counting system:
ichi, nii, san, yon/shi, go, roku, nana/shichi, hachi, kyuu/kuu, jyuu

OLD counting system:
Hi, fu, mi, yo, itsu, muu, nana, ya, kono, to

Zero (0) is sometimes read as “maru” or “rei”.

…………………

27 = 2-7 = tsu/two-na = Sawada Tsunayoshi (official)

59 = 5-9 = go-ku = Gokudera Hayato

80 = ya-ma = Yamamoto Takeshi

18 = (h)i-ba = Hibari Kyouya

69 = ro-ku (or mu-ku) = Rokudo Mukuro

96 = ku-ro = Dokuro Kuromu/Chrome

33 = sa-sa = Sasagawa Ryohei

86 = ha-ru = Miura Haru

87 = ha-na = Kurokawa Hana

56 = ko-ro = Colonello

84 = ba-shi = Basil

100 = byaku = Byakuran (“byaku” is used for counting hundreds)

51 = shou-ichi = Irie Shouichi (“shou” is used when you count by fives)

387 or 487 = su-pa-na = Spanner (Chinese 4 is “su”;Japanese will use “su” as su-ri/three)
