Anon, the kind of control you're attempting simply is... it's not possible. If there is one thing the history of this board has taught us it's that Keit-ai will not be contained.

Keit-ai breaks free, it spams to new threads and crashes through topics, painfully, maybe even dangerously, but, uh... well, there it is.

I'm, I'm simply saying that Keit-ai, uh... finds a way.

This is the original form.

MC loves the feMC. FeMC loves the MC.

The day the two of them decide to confess to each other, they mysteriously find each other's cell phone numbers saved into their phone's contacts list. After some hesitation, a mutual confession occurs after school through phone. Tears of happiness are shed, vows are sworn, and the two decide to meet at the front gates the next day.

But, the next day, MC is rejected by the feMC, who claims she never talked to him before. Strangely enough, the feMC is shown to be going through the same thing, being rejected by MC who treats her like a stranger.

MC and feMC actually inhabit two different universes, and their cell phones are connect them. After eventually reaching this conclusion, the two of them make a promise. They will tell each their likes and hates, their daily schedule, everything about themselves, even their deepest secrets, to help each other in their crusade for love. The name of the anime will be Keit-ai!/Cel-love!, in classical punny tradition.

Sorry, even Keit-ai has too much plot for one of Shinkai's movies. He would just take "A BOY FALLS IN LOVE WITH A GIRL" and stretch that out to 2 hours of monologuing and cloud watching. I wish this fucker would just work on things without having to be the writer/director as well.

A boy falls in love with a girl.

Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

Keit愛: 君の名は
>>
>>134575066
In order to be word in a writing system, all it needs is to be writeable using said writing system. Therefore everything consisting of latin letters is a word in the writing system. Whether it's a term with a meaning, is a different question. Keit愛 is a English-Japanese hybrid word, which can be written in English (Keit-Ai), but can't be written in Japanese. Just stick to one language if you're too stupid to get how the Japanese writing system works. There are so many anime with English titles nowadays, it won't even stick out.

Then Mekakucity Actors is not a writeable word in English. Mekakucity is an English-Japanese hybrid word that can be written in Japanese (メカクシティ) but looks absolutely ridiculous in English since it's even written as one word.

Again, double standards on your part.The pun in Mekakucity doesn't work if the pun in Keit-Ai doesn't work. It's that simple. You're being a huge weeb.

It looks absolutely ridiculous, but it can be written in English and is thus a writeable word in English. The only problem is the capital letter in the middle of a word, but that's just styling. Or do you want to tell me that Cthulhu doesn't look absolutely ridiculous?


>The pun in Mekakucity doesn't work if the pun in Keit-Ai doesn't work

The pun in Mekakucity is a pun in Japanese and works in Japanese. Keit-Ai too is supposed to be a pun in Japanese, but it doesn't work and stems from the creator's ignorance of the Japanese writing system that consists of syllables not letters.

How so? It's a pun on two Japanese words. The word keitai 携帯 is made up of kei 携 and tai 帯. You can't break the tai up into t and ai. It can only be ta + i. Thus, the only way to write Keit愛 in Japanese would be ケイト愛 KeitoAi, which isn't anything like ケイタイ Keitai.

I don't know how to put it easier for you to understand....

Mekakucity is a pun in Japanese メカクシ + シティ = メカクシティ and only works in Japanese which is fine because it's a Japanese title for a Japanese audience.

Keit-Ai is supposed to be a pun in Japanese, but doesn't work in Japanese because you ignored the way the Japanese writing system works. Therefore it's just some weird word in English.
>>
>>134576410
That's not a Japanese word. If Mekakucity can work in Japanese fine although it can't work in English then Keit-Ai can work in English fine even though it can't work in Japanese.

>>134576579
Samurai isn't Romaji Japanese. There's no such thing as Romaji Japanese. The moment it was adopted as a loanword, it became a normal English word. Mekakucity is just a clumsy try at romanization of a Japanese title.

You're confusing languages with romanizations.

It's a Japanese word rendered in Romaji or a way for English speakers to write Japanese words in English.
