Lazy Dungeon Master
Man, I had a ton of fun with Keima’s lines in chapter 84, giving out those names. Fun scene!
Alright, here are my reasons for not localizing the monster girls’ names and some explanation for each:
- To the citizens of that world, the names are foreign and when brought up, they are talked about as such. (Compared to ‘Meat’, whose name is apparently understood as ‘meat’ and not just a foreign word)
- Rei = 0 the same way Rokuko = 695 and Haku = 89.
- Ontentoo’s was a play on words that happened to work in English so I went with it. Sorry for the exception.
- Nerune means something along the lines of ‘Stir and Stir’, as Keima took the reading phonetic from the kanji from the verb meaning that action, the last kana used in the verb, as well as repeating that first kanji. So ‘Stirring stir’… or something.
- It’s a bad joke even in Japanese, which is why he even dedicated a line trying to explain it (and failed).
- Kinue, well.. this one should make sense. He just added the ‘eh’ sound to the end of the Japanese word for ‘silk’.
- The alternative that he didn’t name her (Okinu) uses the honorific prefix phonetic of ‘Oh’. Other examples of this being used is… hmm… ah, Luffy from One Piece would use ‘oniku’ instead of ‘niku’ because he loves meat.
