Learn the languages of spring 2013 anime

Between the language of Ente Isla in The Devil Is a Part-Timer! and the ones in Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, we're getting a nice selection of fictional languages in this season's anime. However, for better or worse, it's not Tolkien caliber language otaku inventing these things. And, as such, a month into the season, looks like they've been cracked.

 

 

Entean is basically letter substition English, with vowel keeping their original position.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

The spoken language in Gargantia is basically German.

 

The IGHL's written alphabet is basically English. Though sometimes it writes out English and other times it's German again.
