In the french version of CardCaptor Sakura, only the word Sakura had remained the same. Tomoyo became Tiffany. Shaolan Li became (scoff) Lionel (i mean come on, my schoolbus driver was named Lionel)

I guess some expressions are hard to translate and/or pronounce in another language. (My first name is. That is, i feel every english-speaker mispronounces it ) , but the effort should be more into realism in translation and pronounciation.

Just watch Zero no Tsukaima, where the main written language is supposed to be french, and you'll see me cringe.


fair point. doing that kills of the ethnicity of the characters though, you've got to try at the very least.

They do that in some animes when it's changed to dubbed. They did it with Card Captor Sakura. Like:
***I'm not sure if this counts as a spoiler, but yeah***
Tomoyo = Madison
Yukito = Julian
And that lady...the teacher...can't remember the Japanese name...but she became Miss Mackenzie or something.

UGH NO! Keep the original names
