    Love Hina screw-up

    Does anyone else think it to be stupid that they gave Mitsune konno (aka Kitsune) a souther accent in the anime? i think that a kansai dialect would probably best be interpreted as a brooklyn or new jersey accent.

    I totally agree. The southern accent doesn't suit her at all. But its up to the directors what they do with the voice of the cast. Its just sad that they didn't leave her in her original style. It would have been much better.

    Our love will go on until the end of time. I will always be yours and you will be mine.

    In Japan, people of the Kansai region are considered to have a 'laid back' attitude. It would be a stretch of the imagination to consider people from Brooklyn or New Jersey as 'laid back', so a southern accent makes a better cultural fit...

    i have to disagree, i dont see southern ppl as laid back either. perhaps you are right about brooklyn or jersy being laid back, but kansi is a densly populated area, am i right? so i kind of related kyoto to a bigger city in the US.

    maybe a cali accent? (wait, do they even have one?)theyre laid back.
