What did I do? o.o
Japanese and English names are fine in this forum. You have to hover your mouse over the names to learn their english ones. I don't play the english games, nor do I watch the english dub of the anime. Normally I don't KNOW the english names at all. Why should I be forced to use names I am not familiar with?
