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: GXthe character Chazz had a nickname and catchphrase inspired by some rather complex wordplay - his nickname was "Manjoume Sanda" in the Japanese version, Sanda meaning "thunder" and being a pun on "Manjoume-san da", meaning "It's Manjoume-san," ergo Manjoume is demanding people refer to him with a respectful honorific.
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, All of this was left out when 4Kids dubbed the show, and Chazz's catchphrase is a much less catchy and meaningful "Chazz it up.
The original run's DVDs in the US included pamphlets full of explanations on the puns involved in the episodes on the disc they were included with, rather than translators attempting to localize the translations.
AnimEigo 's dub of the series also used the title Those Obnoxious Aliens to translate the pun of the Japanese title. Speaking of AnimEigoin Green vs. Reda Mythology Gag involves one Lupin-impersonator spray-painting "Rupan" on a wall, and another asking, "Isn't that wrong?
This is an example of an inverted Lost in Translationgiven that relatively few Japanese viewers would catch the reference. In Cardcaptor Sakuraupon first being referred to by the name, Kero-chan complains that it sounds like a frog's name. 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.
In English, it's a Shout-Out to Sanrio character Keroppi at best, or a complete non sequitur at worst. One reason the Akazukin Chacha anime and manga never made it to the US is that they're absolutely stuffed with Visual Puns that are completely untranslatable and need to be explained in English.
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.
Certain jokes such as Minako's warped proverbs also stop making sense when translated literally. There's also the small matter of the main character's name. Usagi means 'rabbit', and in Japan, the Man in the Moon is a rabbit, so her name has a bit of moon-based wordplay. Unfortunately, that joke doesn't translate, and no Western parents would name their child "Bunny".
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.
In one of the manga translations Usagi is actually renamed "Bunny", but it's implied to be a nickname for "Serena". All of the soldiers' names lose their meaning with the name changes. 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.Cox Report English for ages 5 to [page 4] Programmes of study.
