why is Japan so obsessed with giving stupid names to fixed moves?

Are they not aware that historically a lot of named attacks were just showy-but-useless shit with cool names that were retarded to use in real fights?

Waving your sword in a nice symmetric geometric pattern and slaving yourself to form and style would be no match for someone who doesn't have a fixed form but improvises what they need to do to win based on first principles.

Are you retarded?
Just about every maneuver you can perform with a weapon has a name. Just because people don't usually shout those names during combat doesn't mean they don't exist.

>>134005075
Pro tip, anime is not real. You cant take cartoons seriously... do you?
>>
>>134005075
Because it sounds cool to call names out of your ass.

You posted a battle harem LN adaptation.

That's essentially Japans equivalent of YA fiction. As it turns out a lot of middle-high school aged kids think it's cool if every attack has an elaborate name, even more so if it has a forced english reading. That's why almost every single entry in that cesspit of a genre has them. The same can be said about almost every other frequently recurring element, that shit has been boiled down to a formula at this point.

Simple maneuvers with basic names that are flexible and can be used to construct more complex maneuvers on the fly. Not complicated maneuvers that draw aesthetically pleasing polygons on the air with long ass retarded artistic names.

Did you know every move, attack and block in boxing has a name? I bet you could even name a few.

This is true for every fighting style. Pretty much every move has a name. People just don't say them in real life the middle of a fight.
>>
>>134005600
So you agree that you were retarded when you called the anime out on naming its attacks and that the actual problem is that the maneuvers themselves are silly?
>>
>>134005600
>waaaah, they say the names of their magical spell attacks! People in real life don't call out the names of their magical spell attacks when they draw glowing geometric runes in midair with their swords.

Any chance you'd be willing to never post on /a/ again?

>>134005622

Nobody is talking about simple maneuvers. LN characters don't yell the name of basic slashes or punches either. He's obviously referring to the special attacks which all have unnecessarily long and elaborate names. It's stupid, doubly so if the name read in English despite being written in Japanese, triply so if the actual name appears on the screen when it's used.
>>
>>134005521
It is also a good way to be able to reuse a few anime frames for nearly every episode. On the plus side for the audience, for this reason said anime frames are likely to be prettier than the norm.

explain to me in what world this is acceptable.

giving dumb names to cool looking but useless special attacks is literally a samurai meme from the late shogunate period.
>>
>>134005791
Again, the problem is not the name. When you have a certain one-hit-kill move, there's no point in not shouting out its name.

The real problem is that anime don't feature real fencing.

Well, it is useless, since in spite of the magical "conjoining" of the 49 flashy patterns to make "unblockable combos" it's still beaten by just getting inside her reach, then grabbing and throwing her.
