Dear people of the Internet,

Please stop referring to the Japanese language with the insulting label "moonspeak." Implying that Japanese people are extraterrestrials whose language is nothing but a garbled mess of inhuman syllables is, quite frankly, offensive.

"I can't read Japanese" is a much, much better way to get your point across.

Sincerely,

Dogasu

    I have never heard of this.
    I like the moon, though, and aliens.

    No

    (And of course, Japanese IS significantly more alien to the vast majority of us english-speaking fans - alien as in foreign - than most European languages, because they grew so far apart).
