    Default How do you spell anime/manga characters names

    You know how most people don't spell the same character name "the Same" and it kind of p's people off

    so I would like to know what names you spell different or what different spellings you seen.


    The charcters from DBZ
    goku,gokuu,gokuh,gokou vegita,vegeta,vejjita

    Tenchi Muyo
    washu,washuu,wasyu,wasyuu ryo-Ohki, ryoohki,ryououki,ryoohki

    Interesting topic. I've kinda seen this with the anime character names, too. -But- there are a few things I've seen. I'll have to think about this and come back later. One thing on my mind is where people spell "Yuusuke" instead of "Yusuke" and "Keiko" instead of "Kayko" from Yu Yu Hakusho.

    The only one I can really think of at the moment is Hellsing's Alucard which I've seen spelled Arucard which screws up the fact that Alucard is Dracula spelled backwards.

    It is "Keiko". They changed the spelling of the name to make it easier for an english audience...I don't really get the motives.... The double "u" which some people use in Yusuke is more demonstrative as to how it is pronounced.

    I go with however it would be romanized from kanji and kana, rather than changing the spelling to something more fitting of the english language(ex: In the english Gundam Seed it was "Cagalli", by the japanese spelling it was "Kagari"...I'd say "Kagari"), unless it is a Western name written in katakana(I'd say "Bob" instead of "Bobu").

    *nods* You got that right about 'Keiko'. I knew about how it was made easier for the English audience though. ^^; And for 'Yusuke', I think 'Yuusuke' (I'm not soo sure ...), MIGHT be the original Japanese spelling of his name.

    Prince of Tennis got lots:

    Ohtori Choutarou/ Ootori Choutaroh/ Ohtori Choutaroh/ Ootori Choutarou.
    Shishido Ryou/ Rou
    Sanada Genichirou/ Genichiroh
    Echizen Ryoma/Ryouma
    lot's more especially with the ou/oo/oh names.
    and the Fuji problem. I myself writes Syusuke for it, but hey, not much different.
    *won't get pissed off when the romanji/spelling is different*

    Gundam Seed series:
    Athrun/Athran/Asuran (the last one seen it somewhere but can't remember...)

    And lot's but I can't remember them now^^

    SIG DONE BY ME~^^~ Comes with a set~!

    PM me for requests~!
    Family: LadyWolf14: Ever loven Auntie~danie-chan: auntie~ Princess Elli: Mother~ Kittyninjamewmew: older sister~ Hitsugaya389: older sis~
