It is...not something at all that I worry about.

If I don't like the English title, I'll just call it by its Japanese name. But the actual content of the show is what concerns me. As long as that's good, they can call it whatever the heck they want and I wouldn't care.

Title changes generally do not bother me. In addition, if I get an English title, that's what I call it, for the most part, though this occasionally leads to instances of Internet ranters going, "No, it's not (English title), it's (Japanese title)!" Which makes me roll my eyes a bit. The exception here is if the English title is obnoxiously long; in that case, I look for the Japanese abbreviated title and use that instead (e.g. Oreimo and Yuushibu).

I don't mind as long as it's a direct translation, like Shingeki no Kyojin --> Attack on Titan or whatever Say "I Love You" was translated from. Cardcaptor Sakura --> Cardcaptors and Tokyo Mew Mew -- Mew Mew Power and the like, on the other hand is annoying. I mean, really, what's the point? Are they just trying to "Americanize" the names so they attract more viewers? Aha.

I do mind, especially when english dubs try to localize the shows too much. I mean, it's fine when they're trying to give a local feel to it, but for something like Detective Conan that's supposed to be taking place in Japan... ugh... case closed...
