Welsh Expression.

Nadolig comes from old latin which means birthday.

since the welsh for birthday is Penblwydd, this use of 'birthday' is a specific birthday, the birthday of Christ. It casually means Christmas, but of course the word Christmas doesn't literally mean birthday at all.

Llawen means joyful or merry, so Nadolig Llawen is literally merry birthday, and casually means merry xmas.

Nintendo tax is when a multi-platform video game is priced abnormally high on all platforms as a result of also being released on a Nintendo platform.

Nintendo Switch game prices are notoriously high (called the switch tax) and Nintendo apparently requires some form of parity on prices as part of their contract. As a result, game prices seem to become inflated even on other platforms that are not Nintendo platforms.
Bob: "This game is a straight port of a ten year old game! why is it so expensive??? "
Joe: "look, it's also on the switch... "
Bob: "Ah, I see, it's the Nintendo tax."

I took to research mode and I stumbled upon a blog post by Chie Nakamura, the voice actress for Sakura. She actually directly addresses the meaning of shannarou. she asked the director for the meaning and he said to think of it just like konnyarou. some of you may know that this is a contraction of kono yarou, which means 'you bastard' or whatever.
I had come across another fan theory somewhere on google groups (by native japanese fans) that shannarou was a further contraction of yossha (right!) and konnyarou. that makes a lot of sense to me.
I'll get you! Shannarou!!

Googolplex is a really large number made up of googol and plex.
googol is a made up word to mean 10 to the power of 100 or 1 with 100 zeroes after it.

Plex is 'plus exponent' which means 'to the power of a positive number'. (the alternative is minex, 'minus exponent' which is 'to the power of a minus number')
so googolplex is 10 to the power of a googol, or 1 with a googol zeroes after it.
That number is really large, it must be a googolplex!
