Sentences which makes no sense at all
Posted 2/11/10 , edited 2/11/10


Just stumped upon this sentence recently from the manga Beelzebub:
Oga: "Don't die! If you die, I'll kill you". <--This sentence doesn't make any sense, or does it? I mean.. I think I have seen something like that before in comics. I know it is supposed to be humor but is it just a typical manga language?

Well..post the weirdest words or sentences you have encountered in mangas or anime

"Listen up! What we need is this! Yes, calcium! If we have enough calcium, we can do anything!

Trouble with tests?
Fighting with your parents?
Some girl you like?
Odiferous nethers?

If you have enough calcium, all of these can be solved!"

by Sakata Gintoki


Not a single sentence, but still funny quote that doesn't make any sense at all.

Not quite, sarcasm is more when you say something and not mean it to prove or emphasize or exaggerate your point. Like "Oh yea, and pigs can fly" and "Yea, when hell freezes over".

I'd just say it's one of those stupid remarks that are meant to be funny, or something like that lol.

Don't you just love irony? I believe that's the whole point of that sentence, haha.

Although it might be room for a different topic of discussion, I just want to remind people that these are scanslations, so any queer sentences might be due to an error in translation on the part of the translator. I have translated some manga in the past, and tbh, there are times when we come across sentences that sound strange if translated into English, not because of the meaning per se, but because certain word usages would sound odd if used in English.

I can't think of any examples at the moment, but some of the literal translations are the funniest. I think I recall someone who translated a line as "I could use a cat's hand at the moment", when in fact this comes from an expression that really means "I could use all the help I can get". Can't recall what manga that was, but yeah... literal translations can be hilarious.

In the first volume of a manga called The Time Guardian, one character says, "Miu, I want to ask you a question..." and Miu replies, "Miu, I want to ask you a question..." Editor FAIL!
