Well, let's examine the Japanese forms of "this", "that", and "that over there".



This (technically, something close to you): Kore

That (technically, something close to the person you are talking to): Sore

That (technically, something not close to either of you): Are (no, not that "are")

In casual conversations, "sore" and "are" are more or less interchangeable.





For example, if I were to talk about the sword in my hand, I would say:



"Kore-wa katana desu."



If I were to talk about the gun in your hand, I would say:



"Sore-wa juu desu."



And if I were to talk about that gigantic Gundam in the sky pointing its laser cannon at us, I would say:



"HAYAKU NIGERO!" "Are-wa gandamu desu."

@Aker: Saikyou is Strongest from word 強い(Tsuyoi/Kyou)

not from 最強の武器[read as Saikyounobuki](strongest weapon(DW WTF!!! xD)) but at romanji it writen as Saikyou no Buki.
