In the official "Del Rey" volume 1 the name of this fish is spelled as Hanezacana. So, since it's from the official Del Rey volumes, I

Neutral Neutral - Not necessarily against it. Just that the note talks of character names. :P Hane-Sakura/Hanezacana isn't exactly a character. This might just be one of their own translations and not necessarily one Mashima provided. I also think Hanezacana sounds sillier but meh. Just had to throw that in.

Neutral Neutral - What the guys above said... and also... why Hanezacana? Sakana I know in Japanese means fish, and I believe hane has something to to with wings/flying... and from the looks of things having a fish with wings called "flying-fish" makes sense. Hanezacana just doesn't to me :/ ☆°・*CarrotSays...*・°☆ 13:37, December 15, 2012 (UTC)

Oppose Oppose - I'm against it. Hane-Sakana makes sense. Hane means Wing and Sakana means fish. So Hane-Sakana is probably supposed to mean Winged Fish. Hanesacana means nothing. >_> Besides, the Del-Ray note, as Prime said, is meant solely for character names I think, so, let's leave it as is.   Rai  Talk     02:57,12/16/2012

Oppose Oppose - ^As Rai said. Hanezacana doesn't make much of a sense as a character's name.

Oppose Oppose - You know, I don't even know why the English version translated as Hanezacana... when the Japanese had it as はねさかな (Hane Sakana) on the side... ChaosKnight 03:24, December 16, 2012 (UTC)
