Why Tsuishi no Ame? Why not?

Do you(readers) know that my blog’s title is wrong, or rather incorrect, grammatically at least?

Yes, it is. Tsuishi, ついし (墜死), actually means “falling to one’s death”. As in wheeeee~ splat falling. Sounds morbid eh? And to think I actually chose the title because
a)It sounds cool. Tsuishi-no-ame. It just flooows on your lips.
b)incidentally(not) it means “Rain that falls to one’s death”. It fits. Kinda. Loosely. Like a hula-hoop on a moose.
c)the “grammatically correct” one would be Namida Ame, なみだあめ (涙雨). It means “light rain; rain falling at a time of sadness”. Meaning is neat, but sounds suckish.
d)I actually wanted to put it as Sange no Ame, Sange, さんげ (散華), meaning “falling as flowers do; dying a glorious death”, but like Namida Ame, also sounds suckish.

Now that that’s out of the way, COMMENCE WITH THE FALLING TO DEATH IN THE RAIN!!

Lol. Actually, both of the other variants are not bad. But the sense of Tsuishi no Ame is a win. “Under which we stand.” Lol.

The subtitle is very vague if you don’t know the meaning, so I digress the meaning.

But I don’t think anyone wants to stand under rain falling on people falling to their deaths on you.

Isn’t it that the droplets of rain are falling to their deaths?

Oh well. Amesaseru.

That works too. Nobody ever cares about those poor guys, and they practically fall off by the billions just to give us water.
