Four Character Phrases

Author at Ani-nouto has noted that the Japanese frequently use 4 (hiragana) character abbreviations, but it seems things don’t end there. The use of 4 syllable phrases looks to be common in the language and is something we even see in anime titles as Peter Payne (of j-list) shows us in his blog post. The use of the phrase Tenchi Muyo gave me a good laugh.
