Technically it is otouto, since it's spelled with the hiragana for o-to-u-to.
Author's Response: As I have said already: there are two different schools of thought. Since you do not say "O.U" (rather and elongated "o"), some people prefer to spell it "otooto". Others are more traditional and prefer the "ou". TECHNICALLY speaking, there are no real rules to the English spellings, thus there is a difference in spelling. I know how the hiragana works. I took Japanese for 9 years and grew up with the language. I know what I'm talking about.rnrn- Yumi

Sugoi. Nihongo wakarimasen desu ka? I know a little Japanese myself. Can't wait for you to add more. I was thinking of adding one of mine own.
Author's Response: saa, sukoshi nihongo hanashimasu. Demo, watashi no nihongo wa taihen desu. . . I'm not even sure if that's right or not -__-;; Can you believe it? I've grown up with the language spoken around me, but I can't speak it well!! @__@;; lol, I hope I don't disappoint!rnrn- Yumi ^^;;

I feel like this fanfic was made specifically about that one comment I made xD I hope I wasn't the only one! After you told me I did remember reading that somewhere. Personally i think ou looks better, but it doesn't matter in the end. I hope you add some more soon
Author's Response: lol, no you and two other people too. I just think that I had just about enough of people telling me I'm wrong over a simple spelling. . . I was also kinda ticked off this morning and the latest comment on my 'otouto' spelling just added fuel to the fire (you know how that goes, right? ^^;;;). However, I have taken notice that there are a lot of fanfic writers who try to use Japanese and fail miserably. . . so I thought maybe I'd help a little ^__^rnrn- Yumi ^^
