    I've been a pretty hardcore fan of the VF series, among many of the US fans out there, but I'm sure I speak for many of us, when I ask, what exactly are some of the characters saying? Like Lau, Pai, Aoi, Lei Fei, Shun and Kage. I think (I THINK) that Aoi, before a match in one of her taunts says "Ike ma sei" (sp?) which is Japanese for "Let's go"... but if I'm wrong, please correct me. Thanks.

    Strangely, this question has been asked before with the same title : <a target="_blank" href=http://virtuafighter.com/versuscity/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=versus&Number=36773&page=&view=&sb=&o=&vc=1> Here </a>

    Which also links to an older thread talking about the same thing I believe /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Well, you are right about what Aoi says before a match.
    The correct spelling is "Ikimasu e"
    However, the last "u" is mude so it's pronounce "Ikimas e"
    A very interesting part is that the "e" at the end reveals that
    Aoi is speaking Japanese Dialect from "Kyoto" (Japanese City that is famous for having many temples).

    Yeah, and like a 90-year old woman at that.
