    Default why name change anime people?

    most all people know that almost all anime came from manga but my question is this-why the heck do they change some of the names of the anime careacters names?example..manta becomes mortimer, horro horro becomes trey, kororo becomes corey, and many more! they change pety things like zoro and zolo. you see it in yu gi oh shaman king one piece and many more!

    Sometimes it's just because they want to make the names sound more Western...less Japanese. They think that the American kids will like the characters better if they can actually PRONOUNCE the names, I think.

    And sometimes...I think they've just gone insane.

    By the way, this really should be in General anime and manga, I think...not in Supernatural, since it's not really just about Supernatural...er...yeah.

    I agree. Some rumors in Fanfiction.net say that the American dubbers(thats wat they call the people who change the original version but they only change a little bit of it) just change the names and personalities cuz 1) just 4 the heck of it and 2) 2 make the people who support the original version mad. I just think they're just plain crazy

    I don't know, but it totally ruins the anime! Like in Burst Angel, the original Jappenese version had the robot named Jungle, but they keep saying Jango in English. What's up with that?


    Back, by popular demand! Now with new avy.

    *joins in frenzy...

    hmmm... I agreed with 死 part, as to make it sounded more Westernize and lot easier for them to pronounce as some Japanese name is hard to pronounce. For example, in Rurouni Kenshin/Samurai - X (even they change the title), the American dubbers pronounced Yoshi instead of Yahiko and Kori instead of Kaoru and so on.... and don't let me start with Pokemon.... they totally reconfigured the anime become a series nearly similar to the original Pocket Monsters....bzzzz
