Geez I only thought those ocd types on MAL insisted on that kinda of naming convention but that's a Crunchyroll link.


Erm... yes it is a crunchyroll link. I thought that would be kind of obvious.

I'm curious though, are you calling me an "ocd type" who insists on a particular naming convention? I have no idea where you get that impression as I just posted the Japanese title for an anime series - are you prone to jumping to conclusions with little supporting evidence?

Mate that isn't actual Japanese, it's Japanese Kanji that was converted to the same alphabet English uses. It's basically like saying Pig Latin is actual Latin. It was created to make Japanese easy for Westerners to learn and most native Japanese speakers tend to look down on it. And only use it when nothing else will do.

The use of Romaji is not something most would bother with. I personally think either use the Kanji/Kana or actual English or be prepared to be lumped in with the types like MAL who think the use of Romaji is something that is necessary.

Seriously? You are calling me ocd solely on the basis of using Romaji on a thread with poll options that also use Romaji?
I'd question where the obsession is in this particular conversation.

I can't be bothered posting a lengthy argument here but, if you are so obsessed by this, go and read about the legal status of Kunrei-shiki. If the use of romaji bothers you, go and ask the Japanese government to repeal their legislation.

I find the anime " Brynhildr in the Darkness " way more harder to spell and pronounce.

Out of these, Durarara!! since you can always have the wrong number of ra's in the title. And Yuruyuri is often misspelled Yuriyuri and not Yuruyuru, while the others are pretty hard to forget once you have seen them.
