Appraisal: シェイプ.com (xn--eckf1czh.com)

Unicode: シェイプ.com
Punycode: xn--eckf1czh.com
Meaning: Transliteration of the english word "shape".
Google results: 5.76m
Google pics: 157k

I was surprised that these were still left, but then I took a look at the Babelfish translator and it said "Supreme Headquarters, Allied Powers, Europe"! OK, I got a really big laugh out of this, because the NATO headquarters are located in "Shape, Belgium" :-) However, the Japanese don't seem to use this word to mean "Shape, Belgium" or NATO headquarters... they use it for mostly fitness related terms, but also things like "v shaped tread pattern" in a tire, etc.

Re: Appraisal: シェイプ.com (xn--eckf1czh.com)

There are a few fitness products called "Shape XXX" or "XXX Shape"
I think it's pretty good
It is fitness related & simple.
