    I dunno where you can download them, but they are translated into Chinese. For Korean, I've seen a couple.

    I just know that Neji's name in Chinese is 日向螺旋

    Neji = luo xuan

    But I only know this because I'm obsessed with Neji. :laugh

    Spoiler: Hehe... my manga coloring

    You can read Naruto and others in Chinese . They are fairly up-to-date, too. ^/_\^

    Both 蛭魔 妖一 and Auxunauxia are right. Neji's name is technically written out as 宁次 in kanji, but the characters sounds exactly the same as 螺子, or screw in Japanese. It's a play on words, just as many other characters have names that plays on words (think Ino, for instance). However, 螺子 doesn't mean anything in Mandarin, so it's translated as 螺旋 to keep the joke relevant.

    And thanks, QuoNina, for the link! ::pops over to read::

    螺旋 means screw in Japanese too. It's pronounced "rasen."

    Yeah Rasengan is
    螺旋丸

    You speak chinese so you already know the meanings, but here are the Japanese onyomi and kunyomi (chinese and japanese readings).
    螺 = nishi, nina, ra
    旋 = sen
    丸 = maru, gan, ma, wa (there is 1 other, but I cant think of it right now)
