Why is it 'Luluco' and not 'Luluko'?
>>
Because Midori is best girl anyway
>>
>>141599462
Because they decided to romanize it like that.

Kill yourself.
>>
I don't understand.
>>
>>141599534
But wouldn't Luluko be the proper japanese for it?
>>
>>141599644
I'm pretty sure it is there.
>>
>>141599644
No, go read wikipedia.
>>
>>141599758
the name itself has the kanji that implies that it's no free to be romanised in a specific way.
>>
>>141599462
No one cares.
>>
Technically its spoken as Ruruko since the characters for ru and co don't exist outside of kana, which uses ルル子
>>
>>141600017
lu*
>>
>>141599462
The same reason it's not Ruruko.
>>
Its actually "Lulucho"
>>
>>141600225
It's actually Rururukho, but nice try
>>
It's Lulu∞.
>>
>>141600017
>>141600225
>>141600301
>>141600419

You're all wrong, it's JUSTICE.
>>
>>141599462
The title is a play on "lol" and "luco"
>>
Because muh latin hard c, that's why.
Alternatively, fuck you that's why
>>
>>141599462
Let's go back a bit here, why does C exist at all in the first place?
>>
>>141601055
Can't have the abc without it
>>
>>141601055
Well we had to write operating systems in something.
>>
DON'T LOSE YOUR WAY
>>
>>141601887
Operating systems are older than C
>>
It's actually Mako Matoi II
>>
It's pronounced 'REE - YOU - KOH - MAH - TOY - ROO - ROO - ROO - KOH - EEH - BAH'.
>>
>>141599644
It makes no difference for japanese people
>>
>>141601985
I think you'll find that C predates operating systems by hundreds if not thousands of years
>>
>>141601973
That part was hilarious. I was laughing so hard.
>>
>>141599644
That'd be Ruruko
>>
Why do they call her Midori if she's blue?
>>
>>141599644
The proper Japanese would be ルル子.
>>
>>141604829
Looks green to me.
>>
>>141604829
>>141606131
She's aquamarine, which is a blueish green, but still more green than blue.
>>
>>141604829
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue%E2%80%93green_distinction_in_language#Japanese
Tl;dr it's not that big a difference in Japanese.
>>
>>141601973
Still the hypest shit
>>
I GOTTA FIND OUT WHO STOLE MY DAD
>>
What did they mean by this?

No, seriously. What the fuck?
>>
>>141599462
It's for the same reason they decided to call the secretary Hisho, even in English.
>>
>>141608988
Probably making fun of the whole "your (feeling or otherworldly concept) feeds me" trope.
>>
>>141607032
That's about aoi, it doesn't apply to midori.
>>
>>141609236
The difference between ao and midori is not exactly the same as the difference between blue and green, so there is always room for translation fail.

Schoolchildren were only really taught the Crayola notion of colors since the occupation, so there are many, many lingering variances in everyday language, even for relatively modern things like traffic lights.

All that said, we have this in almost every thread, our three-eyed Midori's RGB is objectively slightly more green than blue.
>>
Lulu & co
>>
>>141599499
She's literally Nonon.
>>
>>141599644
It's not normal!
>>
>>141609721
Literally best girl.
>>
Is this AOTS?
>>
>>141609521
Some of the mess for the case of midori comes with the baggace of borrowed writing.

翠 is cui in Chinese, but midori in Japanese. This character is very frequently used for blues and blue-greens along with grassy greens.

緑 is lu in Chinese but again midori in Japanese, and this is more typically a grass green.

Trigger went with kana so bleh.

You can never perfectly Romanize Japanese phonemes.

Not as big of a slut as Luluco

Because using co instead of ko is the Japanese version of Xtreme Kool Misspellingz.

The Romans liked Greek.

>>141601055
Serious answer: when English was first put into the Latin alphabet, C was only used for K sounds (unless an i or e was nearby, in which case it could become a CH sound, such as cild->child, or ciric->church), and S was only used for S sounds. The Normans were using C for S and K sounds because they were Frenchified Viking fagets, and ruined everything. Our spelling system has been fucked ever since.

Then let's get rid of S and K from the alphabet.
