comment Why is katakana sometimes used to replace hiragana?
Oooh, I see. Thanks for the bonus. I was going to ask about っ used like that, actually. :) Do you think that katakana can also be used in place of hiragana to "sound cool?"

@Matt Taito is the name of a video game company. Does that make it real? ;)

Wow, this is a great find. It does touch on Japanese kanji as well, but even the obscure Chinese characters are really cool. Thanks!

comment Why does furigana occasionally appear as katakana?
I should have pointed out that in the actual anime (and likely in the manga as well), the characters do pronounce 部 as ぶ. Quite frequently, if not always. So this was where my confusion arose from. :)
