Does anyone else like Rhode?
« on: April 01, 2005, 06:41:08 PM »
I know she's a bad character in the manga and what not, but I think she's really adorable and for some odd reason I was attracted to her the first time I saw her. I dont' mean attracted as in that kind of way, I mean like her personality just caught my attention. I don't know, maybe it's her child-like appearance enhanced with the morbidity(is that a word ???) of her facial features/clothing. Hm...am I missing anything? Anyways, any other Rhode Camelot fans out there?

Rhode's (maybe she wrote the name that way because it writes "ロード" - roodo... o.o;... Though timcanpi.net translates it as Rodo too) a girl? O_O New day, new discovery. Thougt she was a guy. XD
I'm not a big fan of Rhode but the character attracts me in some way though. Same as Nagi from Mai HiME. XD

Yes we considered using "Roodo", but usually, the "o" at the end of a Japanese romanization is intended to be silent when emulating a word in English (e.g. "Ed" = "edo").  Considering there are large European overtones in this manga, combined with the fact that her last name is Camelot (and even the fact that she's a member of Noah's family), "Roodo" or anything ending with a "-do" wouldn't cut it.  We considered naming her "Lord", but that seems a bit too prestigious of a name for a little brat  :P

Yeah, when I was thinking of "Lord" I thought she was a guy. <_< It wasn't until the Valentine's Day poster that I realized she's a girl, lol. But yeah, I see no reason as to why it wouldn't be spelled "Rhode".

And, on the actual subject of the thread, I guess she's alright... Not really a favorite character of mine or anything.

i think she's a kick ass character...of course i had no idea Rhode was a girl until the part where the umbrella said "mistress" and even then i was getting confused  :-X im just dumb

but ya...if i had to pick my favorite villain so far i would pick Rhode...she's just got this cynical thing going for her that kinda fits her personality...don't mind me i don't know what im saying >.> <.< >.<...gah!!

ok ill stop now... :-\

I personally love Rhode. I think she is one of the best characters in D.Grayman. I don't know how you guys could have confused her for a guy. When she has here first huge page, she is wearing a skirt. http://img163.echo.cx/img163/4069/dgraymanbw6oi.jpg Last time I checked it was a bit weird for a Japanese or European male to walk around in a skirt. I also liked how, in the current chapter (43), she made the Earl and the newly introduced Noah's Familiy member help her with her Homework. I cannot wait to see more Rhode!

She refers to herself with "僕 (boku)" though, which is something that confused me. =/ I dunno, maybe I was thinking she was a cross-dresser. =p

isn't "boku" gender neutral?

Maybe it's just cause i'm such a n00b, but I typically associate it as being a male thing. =/
