The meaning of "Kattobingu!"
Hey, YuJaYu here! I am here to inform you of the meaning of the catchphrase of Yuma Tsukumo, the protagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh ZEXAL, known as "Kattobingu". I have gotten a lot of questions about what does it mean. Well, I am going to tell you. Literally, it means 'Pop Flying', but it can mean other things as well, such as: "Bring it to 'em", "I won't Give Up!" and "Rise to the Sky". For the first time, in a Japanese-dubbed Yu-Gi-Oh series, we have a catchphrase. In the English-dubbed version, we have a few catchphrases, Yugi's being "It's Time to Duel!", Jaden's being "Get your Game On!" and Yusei's being "Rev it Up!". I just wish the "Kattobingu" wasn't used so much. It is so so so very annoying when they used it at least six times in the first episode. Not a good start for your catchphrase, Yuma. YuJaYu out!!!
