It`s good that people keep explaining the L/R thing in case someone only reads one page of comments before getting distrac--ooh, kitty.

The flesh juice on is understandable, beacuse in japan the writing system lacks L and use an R instead. And thus when writing in Katakana the L and R are are represented in the same character.

I don`t see why it`s so funny, it not like English is an easy language to learn. We also misuse Japanese too, like on tattoos and stuff.

it`s so bloody easy to photoshop these things. I could spot at least one that was photoshop and at least one that would be incredibly hard to (the one with the window reflection)

Why can`t the Japanese get the L and the R sorted out??!!!

Allow me to be the first to point out that there is a site called engrish.com that showcases many of the funny Japanese translations into English.

You may all begin thanking me NOW.

"please get a punch at window", hehe. I took a trip to Japan not to long ago, and yeah a lot of their translations don`t make much sence. But they really try to make Japan as internationally friendly as possible. I loved it there.

stop asking why they can`t get L and R straight.
french people can`t say TH(as in the) they pronounce it Tay...
most american`s can`t say Qkah, like Germans, or arabs do.
doesn`t make us worse then them, it`s just how it is...

Well, they aren`t that bright with English, but let`s see you try to learn Japanese. They are two ENTIRELY different languages, not an easy task.

Although I think that a more competent translator is needed xD

Why can`t they get the "L`s" straight from the "R`s?" They are two VERY different consonants, pronounced VERY differently; you have to actually place your tongue AGAINST the ridge before your teeth, if not between them, to sound the "L" phonetic, unlike the "R" which is satisfied with pure idleness from the tongue! What is the problem?

Actuslly the japanese r is really differen, almost like a weird d.

Oh yeah, about the r to l thing, the asians don`t have an "r" in their language. Well, the east asians (korea, vietnam, china, japan, the like) so we can`t pronounce r. We say liver when you say river. Well I don`t, but the foreigners do. Our "l"s don`t come out as "r"s. ramyun should be pronounced lamyun. for those who pronounce it ramyun, i want to shoot you. many times.

and buddy talked again! :O

Because there are no "L`s" in the Japanese language.
I understand why it would be difficult for them to translate it. It`s not like French to English or Spanish, because it has totally different roots.

Wait, the first 4 hours is 200 yen. Additional hours 200 yen. General 200 yen. They could just write "first 20 minutes free. 200 yen for each hour. Then get punched!"

Auto Rock actually makes some sense as there is no L or V in the Japanese alphabet. When translating English words into Japanese they turn all the Ls into Rs and all the Vs into Bs.

Also, in Japan R is pronounced with the tongue placed behind the upper teeth, the tip touching the roof of the mouth. This gives it a sound similar to the L we know.

At least I learned something in Japanese class, even if I didn`t learn the language. :P
