The dolls are originally from Germany, right? Why do they speak Japanese?
It's a Japanese show.
Same reason King Arthur does, I would assume.
Rozen was a weeaboo.
inb4 Germany is the worst place in the world motivational
See: Black Lagoon, all episodes before last arc of season 2.
All anime takes place in an alternate reality where Japan has conquered the world
rozen was german but he liked little girls so he had to move to japan for teh loli
I cringed when Shinku mocks Souseiseki for using "boku" in the OVA.
Cultural anachronisms are lazy.
Even Code Geass?
you mean this one?
Especially code geass.
It's pretty fucking lame they didn't address this issue.
And it's not like it'd be hard. There's MAGIC in this series. Have Shinku come out of the box speaking German...then she tries French and English when Jun doesn't understand...then she sighs, and uses magic to rip the Japanese language out of his head.
You can even have a "My name? In your language it would be...Shinku" line to explain the Jappo names.
Except for Code Geass. Japanese was just adopted as the official language of the world.
Asuka can suck eggs. I've been to Germany and loved it.
For the record I am not a Nazi. I loved the food, the culture, the music and the history. There's so much more to German history than 2 world wars.
>Japanese was just adopted as the official language of the world.
I thought Code Geass took place in a world ruled by British racists.
True but "english speaking nazis" are too common on WW II movies, you cannot blame then from being as "languagecentric" as the US of A.
Dolls are from German embassy in Japan.
That doesn't really occur in modern movies anymore.
Rozen Maiden should sound like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wru9m83LBWo
we speak whatever we feel like, faggot...
That's not nice, Junk.
Nobody cares what you think, gtfo tripfag.
J-Junk? I... I'm not junk! I'm...not...
Ouverture changes the meaning of the first season drastically. Everything is Shinku's fault.
WTF is that? Someone doing a horrible fandub over the official German dub?
Official German dub is actually nice though...
Yes, it's very unfair.
Yeah I couldn't find the actual dub. I wish the American DVDs had the German dub. I would actually buy them then.
say what you want, I know your dirty little secrets too, shinku!
The only good combo. Suigintou is always relevant.
Everyone should learn english and stfu.
I find this amusing...
