Do you ever get confused about which name of anime and manga characters is the personal one and which one is the family name?
I know I do. It doesn't help that translated manga usually has the order of the names in reverse of of how subbed and dubbed animes do. :rages at the sky:

yes.

there isn't really a standard way to write name. sometimes people write last name second... sometimes they do it first.. like wtf... make a standard and stick to it.

so i just use whatever name i like the most.

Not really 'cause I just listen to what order they say it in.

It does piss me off when they reverse the order in subs though. My brain has to hesitate a tick to distinguish between what I'm reading and what I'm hearing.

On a similar note, I also hate when I'm forced to read Miss/Mr. Soandso for an entire show. Especially when it's a bunch of high schoolers calling each other Miss this and Mr. that. Just put Soandso-san, damnit.
