I think you've all been forgetting/ignoring a very valid and important point - what the heck is with the pineapple? And for that matter, where did Junpei's sister even get it from, anyway? Do they just keep whole pineapples laying around for no good reason in that house?
Aside from all the mundane uses for a pineapple, they're great for anyone who needs to practice with a sword - much tougher than other fruits so it can take more swings, but not able to actually harm a blade. And while we've never seen any of the Ninja with one, I'm pretty sure they've got them just in case. They would be great for anti-zombie operations.

The pineapple is an European symbol of good hospitality. Being able to grow and serve a fresh pineapple to your guest 100 or so years ago was a favored way to display the family's wealth and power when hosting important visitors.

Not sure if that applies in Megatokyo, but you never know with Nabiki.

I was going to ask if Fred had name-dropped this, but the idea is funny enough that I don't care if it's true. I dub thee NinjaGrrl Nabiki!

Well, it's her unofficial forum nickname (along with Ninjgrrl) until Fred blesses her with a real name.

I think her actual title is Venerated Hokage and Eternal Grandmaster Emeritus

But her real name is Miho, Deadly Little Miho

Enjii. Hijoro. Chiyo. Michiko. Tama. Kameko. Lots of choices besides a leetmobile license plate name. :ph34r: :ugeek: :shock:

I call her Nabiki, and I might still call her that if a name is ever dropped. Ninjas may never give outsiders their real name anyhow.

Exactly so until Fred gives her a name, she doesn't actually have one. Some ninja at the compound. Random clan member. Visitor. Rival clan spy. Junpei's mother, grandmother, sister, wife, child. Doesn't matter what her name is, but it's easier to call her something to identify her.

Why Enjii never introduces herself (name, who she is) well it is Tohya she's dealing with.

And yes just maybe this is another physical instance stemming from whatever gives the real thing its corporeal form in this plane of existence.

Are we talking Ghost-07 or Ranma 1/2?

They make equal sense

We could call her Voldemaria, She Who Must Not Be Named. :ph34r:

...yup, I prefer Nabiki as well. :)
