What's the worst case of Engrish you've ever heard either in anime or in anime related media?
>>
Dunno, just post engrish to have fun

Why can't nips hire people who can speak non-accented english for english lines? I mean it doesn't have to even be a professional VA. It can't be that hard to find someone who speaks it fluently and normally, right?

I mean I'm certain most of /a/ would do it for free.

It's actually easier to speak English than Japanese. Baka.

Raging Heart is voiced by an Australian ex-pat -- but still got given lines in Engrish like "I can still be shot".

Because anime is broadcasted in Japan. Since most of them aren't good at English at all, they can't decide if the English sounds fluent or not.

Why do Japanese people talk in that weird pitched voice when speaking English as opposed to their regular voice. Is this how they think it sounds?
>>
>>134891973
To be fair, pretty much all Japanese anime songs have just as nonsensical lyrics.

That's not really Engrish, it's just bad lyrics.

Came here to post this. Also, Symphogear has had some really bad Engrish going on.
>>
>>134886003
The official lyrics don't even make sense in English, and it is worse that they can't even pronounce it

Still my favorite character select screen song

Because most japs don't know any better, it's not worth the effort of finding perfect English speakers for what's usually a handful of lines as very few people would notice anyway.

goddamn thats how i want my anime milfs japan

>>134891978
Received pronunciation. Or it's just how they were taught during English class, so without more familiarity with the language, they don't dare deviate too far.

The Japanese VAs can't voice act in English either anyway so it doesn't matter.

Eh I only remember HanaKana saying it. That's the only bit of the movie I remember. Fact, that's the only remotely enjoyable part of it.

The only people in Japan with good English are either foreigners or people who studied at international academies, and neither of those are likely to work as VAs.

I know there are few VAs who do speak English fluently - mainly because they're mixed and lived in some English speaking country for a while - but they are never used to speak English.

I also assume there's a chance the directors think that since the source material used katakana, then that should be kept.

Asians don't seem to care much about realism and accuracy when it comes down to entertainment, unlike Westerners who will bitch at anything that deviates, even slightly, from whatever they deem as correct, accurate and realistic.
>>
>>134899894
The one that comes to my head most, and he's not a VA but an actor, is the guy who played Kabuto in Kamen Rider Kabuto. When he speaks English, it's like he's a completely different person. No accent or anything.
>>
All of them.

Japanese can't into english.
>>
>>134886745
Sometimes they pull foreigners off the street to do stuff like this: https://youtu.be/8-vfZFD_TXY?t=14m27s

Those performances always did strike me as "they went to a mall and grabbed the first white person they saw".
>>
I liked when they found some white people to do a couple voices in Yama no Susume and they kept making the characters pop up repeatedly over multiple episodes.

That's because they chose someone who already did things like PA announcements on the shinkansen.
