Where did we get the nicely colored anime picture from? I don't keep up on the anime because it's show and really really poorly drawn. Was it in a recent episode?
- It's from the Episode Dragon showed up ... 324 or so? I'm just wondering why the article is placed on Paladego when Oda gave us Barutigo in Katakana. Vartigo seems to me more possible since the English "v" is transcribed to Katakana with a Kana from the "b" line. -- [ defchris ] · [ Diskussion ] · 08:46, September 8, 2009 (UTC)
Where does this Paladego come from ? It's quite far away from the katakana. I would understand Vertigo or Baltigo but Paladego ??? Kdom 20:11, June 25, 2010 (UTC)
I agree with the rest Vertigo is so much better than Paladego and it's nearer to Barutigo.Change it.If not until the official romanization of that word come out, just stick with the original katakana like "Jozu".220.127.116.11 23:38, June 25, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, "Paladego" is quite wrong. I think Baltigo is best. --Klobis 02:32, June 26, 2010 (UTC)
VERTIGO, not Baltigo. Edit
It's meant to be Vertigo. Vertigo in Japanese is "バ––ティゴ" (http://jisho.org/words?jap=&eng=vertigo&dict=edict). There's an added "ru" probably to add the "r" sound back in so it is phonetically closer. It's meant to fit in with the theme of Dragon being a revolutionary and turning the world upside down.
If you look at the convresation above, there has been discussion on this already, and it was decided that Baltigo is the best translation to go with. Also, you definition of vertigo is wrong. It has nothing to do with being upside down, that's inversion. Vertigo has to do with feeling dizzy. Sign your posts next time.01:47, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
...The poster before the former is probably right. Also, he/she did not DEFINE vertigo as such (please read carefully before you make a simpleton out of yourself). He/she said that it would fit in the theme. Vertigo, etymologically actually relates to TURNING...as does the term revolution (revolving... I'm sure even you can understand this). Oda does not often name things without meaning. Please reconsider the article and the naming, or even the suggestion of retaining the katakana as aforementioned in a previous post. ~anon13
Look you condescending little bitch. We had a discussion prior to this and it was decided that Baltigo is a better translation than vertigo. You seem like the kind of person who gets pissy if they don't get their way all the time. News flash, that ain't gonna fly here. If you don't like it, too bad. Baltigo is better, and until there's an official romanization, that ain't changing. Thanks for playing. Try to be more polite next time and maybe I will too.04:58, December 5, 2011 (UTC)
pretty sure baltigo is said to be in the new world not just the grand line
