Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Do you know of any anime or manga series that has a questionable and confusing title? Like it's a title so weird that it leaves you questioning and confused at the same time. The title is suppose to fit the story but you can't see that because it's weird. Show a picture of the manga and anime, list the title, and explain why the title confuses you and leave you to question everything about it.

Enjoy!!!

Uh, picture...uh, I left it in my locker! My dog ate it! And my little brother ate my dog! And I had the flu all last week!

(And someone explained why Bubblegum Crisis doesn't have to do with the fact that it's about rock groups, so I can't put that one on the list anymore.
But can someone explain why Log Horizon isn't about Tibetan monasteries?)

If I remember correctly, Durarara stands for Dullahan which is what Celty is.

From Wikipedia:


Although it has commonly been claimed that the title "Durarara" is an onomatopoeia for the "revving of an engine," Narita states specifically in the first light novel volume that the name means absolutely nothing. He had been editing the finished draft of his book, when his editor called. When prompted for a title, Narita "...just randomly gave a name, 'Du...Durarara?'" Upon hearing this, his editor responded with a positive remark as he liked ambiguous titles."

It'd be an easier question to ask what anime/manga DOESN'T have a questionable/confusing English title. >.>

I'm gonna be the first to put this down on the list.

Bleach, seriously how does this title fit and/or have anything to do with the anime/manga?

Always thought it sounded like that cartoon where Bugs Bunny imitated Bing Crosby:
"Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo...Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo-BURRRP!"

Well, thanks to the new Otaku trend, that would be either "My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering with My School Life", "My Wife is the Student Council President" or "Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon?"
