English title

Shouldn't the proper English name for bukujutsu be 'transvection', rather than 'levitation'? I didn't see a problem with referring to it as levitation until I saw the article for transvection on Wikipedia. Apparently levitation is the result of stage magic and such, while transvection is the correct term for "the experience of bodily movement in defiance of gravitational laws," and synonymous of bukujutsu.

I'd think maybe 'flight' or 'flying' might be suitable. I don't know if they would be considered official titles, but the technique was certainly referred to, at least informally, by those two names in the English series. -- Nonoitall.png talk contr 09:33, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
In that case I think one of those two names would be more suitable then. I'd lean more towards 'flight' myself. What do you think? Storm 09:47, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. :-) (As a reference for the name, Take Flight, Videl seems like as decent a source as any.) -- Nonoitall.png talk contr 09:59, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
Good call. Not that the video games are exactly in the top-tier for the naming precedent, but the Budokai Tenkaichi Z item Flight is also a good reason to name it such, since in the anime the characters likely call the technique by this name generically, but as if that didn't suffice, the technique is dubbed such in an English video game as well. I think we have a winner! Lol. Storm 10:30, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Trivia

Simply because there wasn't any, I went ahead and added some trivia. I'm fairly certain it's accurate, but check over it if you wouldn't mind. Destructivedisk 05:41, October 18, 2010 (UTC)

It's okay if an article doesn't have a trivia section. It just means that all of the information in the article can fit into the paragraphs instead of a miscellaneous section.

Alright, thanks. I knew it wasn't neccesary, but it seems like most of the articles on here do have them. Thanks.Destructivedisk 20:53, October 18, 2010 (UTC)
