    Time on Eternia

    For those of you who pay a lot, and I mean A LOT, of attention to detail: how do you feel units of time should be handled in the MOTU movie? I recall the Dolph Lundgren movie mentioned microns and things of that nature that I'd expect to possibly be minutes. Also, we've had other mediums where the characters refer to the incriments just like we do (minutes, hours, days, etc.), so what do you think?

    Most likley they should just use the same terms of measurement that we do in English (or whatever language it is being translated in to). I am not opposed to the idea of coming up with their own measurement names as long as they just use the names in passing.

    I always found it funny in the first place that if you are tyring to make the movie so realistic that they are an alien race then why do they speak English?

    In my fanfics, I use Zulu (Military) time (i.e., 0300 hours, 0800 hours, 1500 hours, 1800 hours, etc.)
