I think it was sarcasm >_>

*if you're offended by the names, you'll be offended by the rest of this post*

And hey, did you know there was a swatsika in the original Zelda? Did anyone care? Times change.

Call me Insularity, not over, not 9998, or any other stupid thing. Just Insularity.
Or something simpler at least.

It wasn't the swastika.

Actually-

All the levels were shaped similarly to objects that could easil be identified, like a moon or an eagle. So it was made to represent something. A swatsika.

Further proof- Just look at the name- "manji". Manji is the Swatsika >_>

an asian is an asian no matter what. just because your born somewhere, or living somewhere, doesnt mean that you are from there, or the same nationality as them(example, african american, caucasian, asian, native american, etc......). at least i think nationalityis the right word............

look at my profile quote
#16Bass_X0Posted 4/10/2010 6:43:20 AM
Manji existed long before the Swastika did. The Nazis just took that symbol and reversed it for their own, I think to pervert the meaning of what the original symbol Manji.

Sorry for double post-

Well, Wikipedia disagrees with you- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

"Buddhism originated in India in the 5th century BCE and inherited the manji or swastika"

Hmm, so yeah, but then again, lolwikepedia. But if I remember correctly, the Swastika was used because it represented hope for Nazi Germany.
