'Monnei' dialect
Posted 11/19/10 , edited 11/20/10
The epitome of adorableness and amiableness in anime I believe is with those characters that have a 'Monnei' sounding accent. You can't go wrong being attached to them.

My favorite is Lambo from Reborn! And Excellen from Super Robot Wars OG anime. I know people found Lambo's antics annoying but you can't deny that he had a way of quelling the restless heart and captivating even cynics with his care free boisterous charm. Excellen is very much just as care free though in a less childish way... sometimes. I like her especially due to her uninhibited fun nature. She's that type of character that's really difficult to form any qualm feeling towards.

A care free and playful nature I think is what makes them so amiable and endearing.

For my information someone mind giving a little cultural lesson? Just out of curiosity I'd love to know where in Japan this accent is synonymous with? And please tell me of any other characters that have this schway accent.

Seriously, what the heck is a 'monnei'? Could you mind explain it more, OP.

I don't think I could do a good job of explaining the sounding of an accent. Monnei is pretty much spot on. If anyone listens to some characters speech you'll notice they have a pattern of sound in their sentences. It's always their with almost whatever they say.

Lambo from Reborn!, Excellen from Super Robot Wars OG and some others all posses this Monnei sound and utterance that I'm so hung over in their speech. It's due to my ignorance of Japanese linguistics that I say 'Monnei dialect'.

If your curious and don't know what I'm talking about have a listen to Excellen Browning from Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector or Lambo from Reborn! I'm sure you'll pick up on their unique sounds in their speech.
