Just noticed this, kind of interesting.

You know the password in the plantation? "Litagano Motscoud"
It occured to me that passwords are typically words spelled backwards. But since this is japanese instead of english, there isn't a 1 to 1 character mapping. If you take "doukutsu monogatari" and map every two letter sequence backwards (vaguely corresponding to reversing the japanese characters, then romanizing them, although certainly only an approximation) you get "Ritagano Mosuutkuod". Which is fairly close to what Aeon Genesis did.

Not really important, but whatever. I suppose a different translation might have come up with "Yrot Sevac" as the password.

"Yrot Sevac", definitely. :D
Unless you wrote "Cave Story" in japanese characters (still the english word) and reversed those characters then wrote the result in english letters.

cave = evac
story= yrots
Upon interchanging words,
Yrots Evac


BTW, Yrot Sevac = Caves Tory

which makes no sense at all.

he still does mean that, its supposed to have one letter on the other word extra

The space is repositioned.

Cave Story > CaveStory > CaveS tory > Yrot Sevac
