Q: Do VAs in visual novels usually reprise their roles in anime adaptations?

BCLCI notice in Umineko/Higurashi: Based on fandom, it seems like for umineko the only difference is Kasumi Sumadera. Seems the case for higurashi is similar: the VAs reprise their role from the VN in the anime (or vice-versa in the cases where a VN is released after an anime episode). I'm not famili...

Q: Why in S03E02 does the narrator say that Kobachi Osaragi and Miyuki Shirogane are meeting for the 1st time when plainly they have met before?

BCLCIn S03E02, the narrator says 'This is the day that their overseers 1st met.' But we plainly see that they have talked to each other S02E06: Miyuki invites (both Miko Iino) and Kobachi to the student council. Guess: Perhaps it's a slight mistranslation or the narrator means to say that this is the...

Q: What is the in-universe reason why the participants in the contest to succeed Deus Ex Machina are all Japanese (or at least part Japanese)?

BCLCObviously, the out-universe answer is tvtropes: Invaded States of America. But in similar anime/manga like Higashi no Eden/Eden of the East and Platinum End, they actually seem to have attempts at reasoning why all the the participants are Japanese. For Higashi no Eden/Eden of the East, the poin...

Q: Why doesn't the cheerleading club trade uniforms?

BCLCIn S02E09, specifically Chapter 82, Yu (Ishigami) is on the cheerleading team/club and has to borrow a female uniform as part of an upcoming performance by the club. Unless there are more males than females in the cheerleading team, why doesn't Yu just borrow from someone else in the club? Or mor...

Q: Does maji manji (マジ卍) really translate to based or dope?

BCLCRelated I guess: Japanese slang - まんじ、マンジ、卍 From Kaguya-sama: Love Is War: In S02E09, specifically Chapter 82, when Yu (Ishigami) praises Kaguya by describing Kaguya as 'maji manji', the translation in the anime appears to be 'based' and then in the manga it's translated to 'dope A.F.' Kaguya as...

Q: Saw this one anime when I was a teenager but can't seem to find it again. Please help!

DeguezBack in my early teens I discovered this anime about a girl who could see a kingdom up in the clouds that only she could see. She would try to ignore it and definitely wouldn't talk about it to anyone so she wouldn't come off as weird or strange to her friends from school. I'm not too sure about...

Q: In the Japanese dub of Frozen, Anna says 'unmei' (fate/destiny; the late Sayaka Kanda) instead of 'true love' (Kristen Bell)?

BCLCIn frozen Japanese dub, Anna, voiced by the late Sayaka Kanda, says unmei (運命 , うんめい) instead of 'true love' as it was originally said in Kristen Bell's portrayal. Is 運命 just treated synonymously as, say, 本物の愛 (I think honmono no ai and ほんもののあい) or 真実の恋 (I think shinjitsu no koi しんじつのこい) from Kag...

Q: Is Juliet Persia Japanese? Or at least Japanese speaking?

BCLC(Like this: Questions about nationalities and languages in Death Note) Haven't watched Boarding School Juliet. I just saw a recap (Leaders Of Rival Dorms Are In A Forbidden Relationship) of it. Apparently Juliet Persia 'is the only daughter of the Persia household, a high ranking noble family fro...
