Kurushio (born 1980) is a German editor, translator and writer currently living in Berlin. He runs a bilingual (German and English) blog called Doubt Out Loud where he muses about stuff he cares about.
Kurushio loves reading, writing, martial arts, Queensland, his kids and his girlfriend. And TV Tropes.
Kurushio has invested some work in the following pages:
Kurushio himself provides examples of the following tropes (to be expanded):
- Berserk Button
- Bilingual Dialogue Some things - and tropes - just don't have proper German names.
- Butterfly of Doom A Guinea pig, actually.
- Brief Accent Imitation In German and English. Happens automatically, no offense or mockery intended.
- Darker and Edgier Happened somewhere between seasons 18 and 19.
- Full-Name Ultimatum Works quite well on him.
- Good Is Not Nice
- Martial Pacifist
- Must Have Caffeine
- Only Known by Their Nickname
- Sarcastic Confession
- The Snark Knight
- Spell My Name with an "S" He is well aware that the correct romanization of the japanese word for "black tide" would be "kuroshio". Now. Sadly, neither he nor Tom Clancy were aware of that in 1996. It would have prevented the mad cow diseasey short form "kuru".
- We Are Not The Wehrmacht Season 20-21.
- Wham Episode The beginning of season 30.
