According to google it should be Miss Monochrome. I'd go with Miss Kobayashi, myself.

Came into the thread due to the confusion that the title caused me. Not trying to be "that guy," but just for future reference, misnamed is an actual word. "Most Miss Named" just seems.....off.

irony. a thread about things being misnamed is itself misnamed.

H2O: Footprints in the Sand is not about water.

There is not a single character in Charlotte named Charlotte.

Bleach...you get the idea.



Bleach is called Bleach because when the Soul Reapers kill the hollows, they are purifying, or, "bleaching" the soul of impurities, allowing it to pass on to the Soul Society.

One can hardly dub the series as misnamed, however given that...

Wasn't it called Bleach because Ichigo's hair is orange?? Because people thought he bleached his hair?

Well, I find Jojo's Bizarre Adventure rather amusing...one would think it would no longer be bizarre, to them or the audience...

Beelzebub was more of a comedy than I imagined it would be, based on the title

Garzey's Wing just fits into all questions like this...no matter what you expect when venturing to watch it, it will leave you speechless...

Oh!! How could I forget!! My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU...NOTHING LIKE WHAT THE TITLE SAYS!! That hit hard when I realized how I had been lied to

Not so much the title, but the opening theme for Death Parade did not fit the theme of the show

When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace...kind of thought there would be more...well...supernatural battles, haha!!

Bubblegum Crisis

It's a pretty odd title since there is no bubblegum, though there is a lot of ass-kicking

The World God Only Knows - It's a show about a romantic simulator nut tasked with using his gaming skills to try and get real girls to fall in love with him. The title made no sense.

Yuri on Ice. Not the "yuri" most of us were hoping for.


I know, right? Funimation got him to come back as Suzaku in the Code Geass: Akito dub, so why couldn't they get him for this one?

(oh, did you mean 百合?)

The new show "My Girlfriend is a Faithful Virgin Bitch" sounds like it will be misnamed for English speakers.

Walkure Romanze..not even sure WTF that means


The Japanese equivalent of the word "bitch" is an insulting word that means "loose" or "slutty"--so it might more appropriately be translated "My Girlfriend is a Slutty Virgin".

Walkure Romanze is meant to mean "Valkyrie Romance" in some Latinate European language.

It'd make more sense if they got off their butts and finished the story.

I'd suggest FLCL. Not that the title is particularly descriptive or accurate, but I feel like the title should probably be an unpronounceable combination of hieroglyphics, wing dings, and shades of puce.
