TV Series Discussion: “Your mother wears army boots”


Didn’t Ryo call Sekhmet’s mother a whore?

“Your mother wears army boots!“ (or “combat boots”). The implication is
that she must have got them by bartering sex with a soldier for clothes.
This particular one, referring to women in poor villages who would put
out in such a fashion, has become a Forgotten Trope
that has to be explained to a modern listener. Especially since a woman
who wears army boots these days is much more likely to be in
the army. If this insult is ever used unironically now, the implication
is probably that the insulter thinks the insultee’s mother is a lesbian,
in an inversion of Real Women Never Wear Dresses.

… And Ryo talks this way to someone who can “scorch the Earth” with his venom and the venom can eat through armor (eventually). Yeah taunt that guy.

I suspect Sekhmet being in the Netherworld for centuries had no idea what that phrase really meant, lucky for Ryo. Otherwise Sekhmet would be, “F*ck this. You’re dying NOW.”

Where can I watch “Ronin Warriors”?

YouTube. At least until the DVDs for the Japanese version of the TV series comes out in February. (The OVAs DVD release will be Japanese & English.)

I’d highly recommend buying the DVDs when they are finally available for pre-order. The only way we can encourage companies to re-release the DVDs and support this series is through our wallets. If enough people buy the Japanese version of the TV series, hopefully the dub license can be picked up too.

The fandom support from buying the original DVD release years ago caused the OVAs to finally be dubbed after all these years. I think we can surprise them once again. 🙂

Note: YouTube link is for the TV series only. The playlist doesn’t include the OVAs Gaiden (Side-story), Kikoutei Densetsu (Legend of the Inferno Armor), and Message.

Q: Do you know if the warlords have any official song appearances other than just Kamen no shita no namida?

Do you know if the warlords have any official song appearances other than just Kamen no shita no namida? I keep thinking they sang in Best Friends because I swear up and down I hear Nazaa in it O.O Also, congrats on 18 years for souloftheseasons!//

I was under the impression that the Trooper and Mashou voice actors all sang in the Best Friends song. (And the voice actors for the other main characters too.)

This is to the best of my knowledge, and anyone is welcome to confirm or correct me.


Per khandri’s reblog post:

A quick check of the liner notes in the CD does indeed list all four Mashou seiyuu as singing in the “Best Friends” song along with most of the rest of the cast.

Thanks khandri!
