The English title for Asobi ni Iku yo! is rather bad: Cat Planet Cuties.

Zettai Karen Children basically had to have its name changed for the English release as it would be hard to want to watch an action series named Absolutely Lovely Children.

And of course the infamous Clash of the Binoids version of Macross Do You Remember Love?

Pretty much anything with a long ass title. Especially Watamote (sounds like a Latin dance move).

Galient can call itself whatever it wants. The show is full of manly men with manly mustaches.


Space Runaway Ideon


Considering what it is, I'd rather run away from Ideon.

At least it's a more normal title than Gowapper 5 Godam.

Sunday Without God

Black Rock Shooter (someone who shoots black rocks? lol)
Wonder Beat Scramble


I had to google a few of those to make sure they actually existed(Straight TItle Robot Anime, I'm looking at you especially)


But Dragonball?

Saying Dragonballs title is questionable is more questionable than the title!

You sure you just ain't just jumping on the Dragonball hatewagon?


I loved the dragon ball series as a kid, but Dragon ball sounds like a ball of dragons or something XD. Also it is super close dragon balls, which sounds like, yeah...

The show Sunday Without God would make you think of something else other than a zombie melodrama. I wasn't expecting Black Rock Shooter to be that type of anime series. I know it had some to do with Vocaloid. Kill me baby is a good comedy in my opinion just the title doesn't do any good.

I loved Kill Me Baby! Sadly I heard it did very poorly and I doubt most people even saw it
Selfish promotion, lurkers of this forum, if you haven't seen it, watch it! You may or may not be amused

Yeah! I found myself laughing too hard from viewing each episode. There are shows that some people don't have the patience for simply by not watching the first episode only by title and graphics.

Clannad is kind of amusing since the Key staff actually thought that because of the Irish band "Clannad" that it was Gaelic for "Family" even though it totally isn't at all. It's short for 'Clann As Dobhar' which means "The Family from Dore" So in the end it's basically ended up just being named after an Irish folk band

I always wondered about Clannad. I know Bleach was given its name because Kubo liked the band Nirvana.

I don't know why this comment made me laugh.
The title is strange though.

The creator of the anime is obviously a troll.

I My Me! Strawberry Eggs - that title has nothing to do with anything.

Attack On Titan bothered me as well. I thought it was going to be about aliens attacking the inhabitants of a planet called Titan.

Usagi Drop - Maybe it's explained further on in the story in the manga, but I just don't get it.

The Severing Crime Edge - Even though there's that whole scene that shows how they come by that name it's still really goofy and makes very little sense.
