Mathematicians call it a halmos symbol, after Paul R. Paul Halmos also invented the "iff" abbreviation for "if and only if". Before Halmos had the idea to use the symbol in a mathematical context, it was widely used to mark the end of an article in popular magazines it still is. Such a tombstone is especially useful for an article which spans a number of columns on several pages, because the end of the article may not otherwise be so obvious
In episode 17 of Maid-Sama! Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo parodies this during "Bobobo theater", when the ridiculously long string of Japanese characters are read as simple words like "Youth", with Beauty complaining about it.
A fire-fighting cyborg that was a shoutout to Tokkyuu Shirei Solbrain used a monkey brain, which was afraid of fire. A somewhat wacky bit of odd translation happened in a different arc of FKC. In a wrestling match, Futaba is forced to fight a genetically engineered giant flytrap.
In the first chapter, the flytrap was called Dancer II. In the second, they reverted to a direct transliteration of its name, Odori II, rather than translating it as Dancer.
Thus revealing the pun. In a French fan sub of Rozen Maidenit became very obvious the sub was based off an English sub when Kanaria said she was going to play a requiem "pour la sorciere perdue" for the witch that was lostwhich is a mistranslation of what she said in the English sub: Fansubs in non-English languages tend to do this with a rather high frequency: His catchphrase incorporates this into a chant involving the Japanese words for the numbers ten, one hundred, one thousand, and ten thousand the "man" in his name means 10, Speaking of AnimEigoin Green vs.
This is an example of an inverted Lost in Translationgiven that relatively few Japanese viewers would catch the reference. Makes perfect sense in Japanese, where "Kero" is the onomatopoeia for a frog noise, and a common cutesy way to refer to an animal is to append "-chan" to the sound it makes.
One slightly glaring example from the Love Hina manga: The Christmas themed banners in one panel say "Satan" instead of "Santa". Some fansubs interpret this as a shoutout to Tenchi Muyo! Sailor Moon in general can be very tricky to translate due to the amount of puns and cultural references used.
The English dub team threw the whole thing out and renamed her Serena, which is a normal name that evokes the moon. Chibi-Usa became Rini, a cutesy diminuitive form of Serena. A great deal of the humor in the American Funimation dub of Crayon Shin-chan comes from lampshading this trope. However, the name "Kakarrotto" is romanized as "Kakarot" in the Funimation dub of the anime, while "Vegetto" for some reason became "Vegito", rendering his name meaningless.
The Viz translation of the manga avoided this problem by renaming "Vegetto" into "Vegerot".
In the original Funimation dub, Freeza was portrayed as a short tempered Smug Super who had Ho Yay undertones, a brutish way of speaking and a feminine voice. In the original Japanese version, however, Frieza was portrayed as a sophisticated well-mannered, but Faux Affably Evil tyrant, who only showed anger when stopped going his way.
It was not until Dragon Ball Kai that American fans were introduced to the sophiscated, well-mannered tyrant he was originally intended to be.
Goku misunderstands, assuming she wants to talk about food konnyaku. Luckily for the translatorsthis fits the character to a T.
