The problem is, the right way to do it would be to cast a russian girl who speaks Japanese and English fluently. Good luck finding one

I never understood why Japan doesn't just use foreign voice actors who speak Japanese for foreign characters. The English/whatever would be good, and the Japanese would sound realistically foreign instead of being flawless as it always ends up being.

Probably pretty well versus most ground units. Most of the exaggeration in 40K comes from the sheer strength and survivability of many units, so korosensei would have no issue taking down a space marine or ork boy.

like >>121016782 says, the difficulty comes from the magical and psychological parts. I have no idea what a psyker could do to him, but I wouldn't bet he would turn out fine. Seeing as he has a weakness for women, at least to a degree, a slaneeshi demon could certainly get close enough to take him down.

Japanese cartoons are made by Japanese, for Japanese. It's more strange that Hollywood usually has everyone speak English or not since the burgers wouldn't be able to watch it, if they had to read.

It mostly seems to be girls who interested in AssClass in the west, too.

Seriously, every female anime fan that I've ever known reads it, while only a few guys do.

It's probably Koro. Girls tend to like those kinds of designs, while guys tend to take it as a sign that the work is geared towards girls.

*Anime and Manga isn't typically made for them, and the audience it is made for is more ignorant than not of none-Japanese material, so getting foreign things right basically just becomes a matter of showing off the length of one's dick.

Can't they just teach english to upcoming seiyuu, like a part of their schooling?
One would think a seiyuu being well versed in english might be quite demanded.
>>
>>
>>121021274
That's fairly common. Another problem with hiring people who speak Japanese and English very well is that the people whjo write the lines don't really understand other languages, and voice actors have little say in the content of their lines.

In short, you can speak perfect English, but if the person who wrote your lines wrote shit English, you are stuck with speaking shit English.

Why not just do it like KnB?
When they spoke english, they just put japanese subs.
Doesn't seem unusual in other countries either when someone speaks a foreign language.

If Japanese watched an American work with horrible Japanese, their message boards would be flooded with "ow, my ears", "terrible Japanese", "is this supposed to be fluent", and "how hard is it to learn basic Japanese grammar and pronunciation before utilizing Japanese", too.

It's a natural reaction to incomprehensible shit being portrayed as anything but incomprehensible shit.

It's also undeniably pretty lazy and/or unintellectual on the parts of the staff. Doing it wrong deliberately is what you call "treating the audience like morons".

Getting a VA who speaks perfect english would take time, money and limit their VA choices. We could be complaining about a perfect pronunciation and a shit voice instead. Simply nor worth it for them.

Fluency is subjective, and the Japanese concept of fluency is basically "Did they pass their rote-memorization English final in high school?"

>>121027542
Not in the missionary position but yes.

They could pull any white person off the street in Japan and it would be better.
Even if they don't speak english.
And since she's not even english, it'd been fine or as expected of a woman that knows many languages.
The japanese tongue is not trained well enough to speak like a white person.
Either know how to speak a bit of english, or don't do it. One week of some jap bitch cramming the sentence "You were incredible in bed" doesn't cut it.
Some of the worst engrish I've heard in a while.

If you rolled over and the bitch said "Yuu wah enkredahbeh en beh" You'd think, good lord I just had sex with a retarded woman.

>>121028482
Nah, its training from a young age NOT to be able to say certain sounds correctly. If you never use a TH sound (For example, its not used in Korean I believe) when you were a kid, the tongue is unable to properly form the motions. Its extremely difficult to teach an adult to use a sound they've never used before. Possible, but it takes a LOT of practice on their part. Tutoring dozens of different japanese/korean people trying to learn english has taught me not to try to correct pronunciation as much as grammar
