i've been wondering for a long time why most (if not all) jdramas/jmovies have no english translation of their titles? wouldn't it be nice to have english translations of them? i did not know that koizora was the same as sky of love... k, tw, and th dramas/movies have english translations...can we suggest this to CR?

Same here...it sounds better sometimes too like Ryusei no Kizuna sounds mysterious/dramatic while it's english translation is Meteor Bond. It just looses its poetic sound. Or Nobuta wo Produce = Producing Nobuta,

yeah, i prefer that the titles should be kept in their originals --- because that brings uniqueness to the drama, and we got to learn new jap language from there.

I prefer the original name cuz depending on the title sometimes translated in english it sounds weird
like for example Hana Yori Dango sounds way better than Boys Over Flowers lol it sounds homo
