Ah, I just remembered some of the Engrish they used in Azumanga Daioh. The English teacher, Yukari, comes to mind, since she'd speak English, rather poorly, from time to time. I particularly remember when she gave out some lecture at some point.

The best one I can think of was some random part where the freaky yellow cat-thing walks in saying "It is a fine day today" and Osaka replies with something along the lines of "Oh my god!" It was... odd.

I couldn't find the Osaka one, but here's Yukari: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Zrc9BB_kpf4

The beginning of Saint Beasts the opening was so horrible it made my ears bleed also in the Prince of Tennis especially when they played the American team.
I found this really bad one notice how the Japanese girl looks all cute and all the American girls look ugly lol

Has anyone else noticed it? Japanese anime-makers always try to have some English monologue or conversation, as if to show off their wondrous education in this-the world trade-language, but don’t take into account that their voice-actors have no idea what the hell they’re saying.

They’ll have somebody who’s supposed to be an American, but their English sounds like a parakeet on rat-poison. No, worse, it often sounds like the essence of death. Sometimes I wonder, “How the heck did they get to hell?” Because I’m completely sure that what really happened wasn’t a man speaking into a microphone, but rather, somebody taking a cheap tape recorder, entering hell, and returning to turn the recorder on and play it on their anime.

One of these sounded like an automated dotard. I was sure he was speaking some strange form of ebonics/latin/reget. Another time the person couldn’t help but speak with random frikin’ pauses in the middle of each word. It took like forty minutes to get it out!

In Neon Genesis the German is really bad too… I’m not even fluent in German any-more, not having lived there since the second grade, but even I realized that was horrible. It made me cringe. I wanted to tear my arm off so I’d have something to beat my ears in with.

So, what’s the worst you’ve seen? Here’s the worst I’ve ever encountered, that I can think if. At least in this case I was too busy chuckling to surgically liberate my limbs.
