Let's play Shiritori ^_______^

Rules of the game:

* Shiritori (しりとり) is a Japanese word game in which the players are required to say a word which begins with the final kana of the previous word. No distinction is made between hiragana, katakana and kanji.
* For our purposes, we will only write in Romaji.
* Two or more people take turns to play.
* A player who plays a word ending in the mora N (ん) loses the game, as no word begins with that character.
* Dakuten and handakuten may be ignored. Thus suupu (すーぷ) may be followed by furo (ふろ).
* Proper nouns are not allowed (ex. names of people and places)

-------------------
Let's start! I'll be the first one to give the first word ^____^

"Itadakimasu"

I've heard of this game before and the explanation, but i think it'll be kinda hard for most ppl to join in, since some might not even know as much etc. D: and it could be a little confusing for ppl not well versed in japanese etc

Just putting it out there D:

You'll just have to construct a japanese word with my 1st given word, I gave you "Itadakimasu" right? So the kana on the end is "su" so you think of a japanese word which has "su" on it's beginning, like "sugoi".

Still unclear? Sorry, it's hard for me to explain

If nobody joins then I'll lock this thread right away
