Zettai Ryouiki: Two times on the trope page, this is used to refer to the Bikini Wish in the Pool Episode. Yet... Zettai Ryouiki specifically involves stockings, a skirt, and nice thighs. The bikinis have neither stockings nor a skirt associated with them, so it seems like those specific instances are a misused trope.

Is there anything I'm missing, or is this accurate? If so, I'll go trim the entries.

Is Sera's Tsubamegaeshi a Shout-Out to Fate Stay Night? Tsubame Gaeshi is a real thing but it's actually a judo throw and I think Assassin in Fate Stay Night is the only other person who uses it as a sword technique.

The new season is called 「これはゾンビですか? 地獄変」 "Is this a zombie? Strange hell" The Kanji used are 地獄 (Jingoku, meaning "hell") and 変 (hen, meaning "weird, strange and change"). The 変 kanji is the first kanji in 変態 (hentai), so it may be a contraction of "perverted hell", but I imagine that's more of a pun than an intentional thing.

Looking up online, there was a mistranslation of "jingokuhen" on My Anime List's forums (based on someone looking "hen" up in a romaji dictionary, I'd wager) — If the kanji for hen was 篇 it would be "hell chapter", but it's not.

Is anyone else just slightly irritated that the fansubs have thoroughly convinced a rather large part of the audience that Sera's trademark insult is "piece of shit" when the word means "dung beetle"? I thought I saw a trope that described something like this once but I can't remember what it's called or I'd put it as an example.

How about another redirect? This time, it's the abbreviation, "Korezom", a nickname I got from The Other Wiki's page on this series.

"Back From The Dead: She actually says she prevented his death, although there's probably no difference."

Considering the information she shared in episode 4, I would think that there is a difference. Yuu prevented HIS death, but in a way she didn't prevent death; she still "died" so to speak when she made Ayumu a zombie.

There has got to be some trope(s) linking this to Fate Stay Night, but I'm not sure what to to use. Shout-Out? Expy? There's Yuu's appearance (basically Saber + Dark Sakura), a protagonist who doesn't die when he's killed... You get the idea.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
