My enjoyment of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is pure and totally unironic, even the gratuitous English courtesy of creator Hirohiko Araki, so seeing Joseph Joestar (no, it's a perfectly real sounding American name!) in this compilation is no surprise. It's only natural.
OH MYYYYY GOOOOOOOOOD is Joseph Joestar's catchphrase, really, well besides OHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOO, HOLY SHIIIIIT or SON OF A BITCH.
Why are we still using the l-r stereotype to describe Asian accents like a 50s yellowface act?
Because it has some validity?
Japanese has one liquid consonant, a flap that varies between lateral [ɺ] and central [ɾ]. English has two: an alveolar lateral approximant /l/ and rhotic consonant of varying phonetic properties centered on [ɹ]. Japanese speakers who learn English as a second language later than childhood often have difficulty in hearing and producing /l/ and /r/ accurately.
no shit Sherlock, that's why they're stereotypes.
NEWSFLASH: It's funny to hear someone fail to pronounce words in your language correctly.
Oh my god, are we trying to manufacture outrage by claiming "Engrish" is the next big bigot blacklist trigger word?

I know your outrage addiction is wanting an itch to scratch, but seriously?? These were all made by Japanese people who are often making fun of other Japanese people for their English accents. It would be like my Mexican friend poking fun at me for my Spanish accent, which I would also laugh at.
Sure are alot of blondes in japan.
Why do the japanese think the majority of white americans have huge blonde 'fros?
Where the Hell are you from that most Americans don't have blonde 'fros?

Usagi is the only Senshi who can't bluff her way through an entire sentence in English.
