Between L and R

Posted in: , by . 5 Comments

     Well this is embarassing actually. But I cant help but write this. For those who know japan well, you must know that it is hard for japanese people to spell L, V, and many others. Simply just because they have none of those words on their hiragana or katakana. So when they have to spell a word containing those letters, they got some troubles. For example, They spell "Raito" for "Light" (Deathnote lovers, you must know this :D). "Love" becomes "Robu". This is funny and unique, but sometimes it becomes troublesome.

     This is one of those many examples related to this problem. And unfortunately, it happens to my lovely J-Pop Band, Ikimono-Gakari. In one of their PV(s), Kimi ga Iru, they write "fork" as "folk". It really has a different meaning, right? -_- This is the snapshot from the PV:

    But this stupid thing wont change my love for Ikimono-Gakari, you know ;p I am still a die hard fan of Ikimono-Gakari. I looove Ikimono-Gakari, I do! ;)
Come to think about that song, Kimi Ga Iru, this is a nice song actually. And the PV is awesome as well (excepts that "folk" thing). This video will assure you:


And yeah, japanese people, "purisu, dont make ano misutaku again!" hehehe :p
