"While there are millions of boys with biblical names like John, Mark, Michael and even Ezekiel, the name Cain has always been avoided because, in the bible, Cain was the first murderer, and he murdered his brother. Spelling it with a "K" doesn't hide the stigma of the name. It's like naming your son Manson, Adolf, or Osama." Dec. 4, 2018:

"In terms of the Ninja Sentai Kakuranger (the original Japanese incarnations of the Alien Rangers of Aquitar in the Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers mini-arc occurring in between the end of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the start of Power Rangers Zeo which is based on Chouriki Sentai Ohranger (Super-powered Task Force Operation Hardware Rangers)), well, one particular member of that group, Jiraiya/NinjaBlack, was, at least in the early episodes of Kakuranger, always talking English instead of Japanese, much to the confusion of his team-mates. The reason for this is because both Jiraiya and his actor (Kane Kosugi, of course) are Japanese-Americans from Los Angeles." Jun. 24, 2009:

"Borne by the Japanese-American actor Kane Kosugi (born 1974), who made his name as the bilingual (at any rate English and Japanese-speaking) Jiraiya/Ninja Black in the 1994 Japanese show Ninja Sentai Kakuranger (on which the Alien Rangers of Aquitar in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Series 3 were based), and who has appeared mainly in Japanese films since then. He is the son of Tokyo-born Sho Kosugi (born 1948), who was himself big as a film actor in the Eighties." Mar. 10, 2009:
