Misspellings and other laziness of English Text in Anime
Posted 3/30/08 , edited 3/30/08
hmmm, I'm pretty sure there wasn't another topic on this, I used the forum search twice... and I looked in the index... nothing =/

so, I was wondering if anyone noticed any pieces of english text that have been totally botched in Anime

here's an example from Best Student Council, or Gokujō Seitokai


I'm sure there are other examples (I haven't saved any though... just this one =/...)
Some companies even reuse text over and over in order to make it look like they've done something... I think there was even one anime that had used an American newspaper and the results of the 2000 election o_O;;

so post screenies and whatnot of what you've noticed

**crap, I just noticed how crappy my title is ¬_¬;;
well, I guess that works ¯\(°3°)/¯... weird wording and whatnot

I don't have a screenie but there was "suitscase" in Clannad. But that's because "suitcase" becomes "suutsukeesu" in Japanese.

Yeah I've noticed that but English isn't everyone's first language.

Well, what can I say. Sometimes it's pretty clear that people don't know Japanese when they're subbing in English.

the problem is that in japan not every single letter has their own japanese letter.. so they change it ..lik Love they dont hav one for L so they say Ruove.. and so on

hey hey hey, I'm not criticizing them ¯\(o_°)/¯...
I was just wondering if anyone had anything to share... I understand that they're missing some letters, and of course, I'm sure the sentence structure is different for them too... hell, even my title is really awkward sounding now that I think about it...

I have another example (no screenshot)... Heat Guy J, there's a character named Daisuke Aurora, his card named him Daisuke Aurola...
