 Getsu Fuuma Den
Argument: Naming , Closed by: root

Hey there! There's a bit of naming problem for the game "Getsu Fuuma Den", listed in-database as "Getsufuu maden". The title in Japanese is "月風魔伝", or "The Legend of Getsu Fuuma". 月風魔 is "Getsu Fuuma" -- our main character, and "伝" would be "den", or legend/tale/story/what-have-you. Meanwhile, "Getsufuu" and "maden" aren't words. You could probably fake out a meaning like "Lunar wind magic story", but that's totally BS and not an acceptable translation. That's just taking a bad transliteration and trying to force it to work.
