You now realize Japanese make gawk-ass attempts at English names like we do Japanese.   
   
Example: Make up a Japanese name for yourself   
   
Mine example: Kikaru Matashi (						********					)   
   
>yfw Japan's version: Ash Ketchum, Brock, Misty (Close), Goku, Vegeta, Frieza, Gohan, Oak, Yugioh, Kiba, Joey (Good)   
   
They think those are English names. I always thought that was kind of cool.

Except those either are actually Japanese names, or not the characters' names in Japan, or puns.

Ash: Satoshi
Brock: Takeshi
Misty: Kasumi
Goku: Japanese
Vegeta: Vegetable
Frieza: Freezer
Gohan: Japanese
Oak: Okido
Yugioh: It means "King of Games"
Kaiba: Japanese for Baby Dragon
Joey: Junoichi in Japan

pisses me off anyway that they **** up the names that badly.

I'm rewatching Digimon atm and the English/Germans just really messed the names up. And I was just all like what the **** ?
