I don't, too much effort for not enough payoff. If I have to figure out the English to Japanese or Japanese to English name of a series for some reason i've got wikipedia for that.


agreed. Been times where i look up one name for an anime and get nothing found.. That's when wikipedia comes into play. Cause either the site does not know the English or the Japanese name.

If I care about the series, I will eventually learn what the title actually means and memorize it that way. It also helps me memorize other titles because i'm building a very very small vocabulary of Japanese terms. As an example, I memorized "Bakemonogatari" because I knew from watching anime that "Bakemono = monster" and "monogatari = story" so "Bakemonogatari = monster story"

For some series, I just give up and memorize the English titles. Like for Nekogami Yaoyorozu (I just can't memorize that second word, so I go with Cat God). Or those new really long titles that are becoming popular like "Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai." Its easier for me to just give up and memorize "My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute"

I just screw up saying it enough times that usually about a day or two later I accomplish it!

My latest accomplishment: Mondaiji-tachi ga isekai kara kuru sou desu yo?

Since I watch anime subbed (just because), and the title shows up and I also remember on what the series is about. EX. The anime that has a sexy butler that's a demon- Kuroshitsugi.

It would help if CR would put up the Japanese titles by translated ones for those of us with an interest in such things.

I find I tend to have the opposite problem on CR sometimes. Not recognizing shows when I see the English name. >.>
