You know, I think I came up with something here.

zetshia_gudani's watching this awful anime where they tried to make up German names and FAILED. Big time.

Anyway, she mentioned that the names were all wrong and their American military uniforms were all wrong and then said "Well, I suppose we probably fuck up whenever we make movies about samurai."

That made me realize that movies really are the ultimate equalizer. Movies allow every culture to fuck up every other culture's culture equally.

Kyou Kara Maou isn't awful! It's fun and silly, and one of my favorites! Yes, several of the names sound German-ish, but since it's set in the fictional land of Shin Makoku, I don't think any non-exact spellings/pronunciations are a bad thing. It's generally based on European royalty and that structure in general vs. modern Japan. I love that series- was one that I brought back from home in July. It's fun to have a clueless male main character this time, instead of the dippy princess types.

so there. ^___^

I've been trying to remember what put me off of it to begin with, but I can't.

It comes right off the heels of me watching a bunch of Legend of Galactic Heroes episodes which has a very strong German undercurrent -- music by German composers, German titles, and German names -- so it probably looks even goofier than normal.
