Cat Stevens did sing Father and Son though, which also has a somewhat melancholic feeling about one's son growing up!

As a Mandarin speaker, I've always pronounced it something like "loo-tsuh," since that's how the "e" vowel is pronounced. (The "ee" sound would be written with an "i.")

Overall, the monastery feels more like Tibet than China, though, especially since Ludd was given the name "Lobsang," which is a reasonably common Tibetan name.

This episode inspired one of my favorite Steven Universe shitposts of all time:

“Steven Quartz Universe, you were named after the number of lions I own, which is seven, plus a ’t’ because Greg insisted.”

I feel like capturing the feeling of the original is probably more important than following the actual plot, particularly for that kind of story. And I am [to nobody's shock] a colossal Baccano! fan. So: sold! I'll definitely check it out when I have some free time!
