Engrish Soramimi: Call Me Maybe… Later

Welcome back to another bout of bad Engrish soramimi! Why do I say ‘bad Engrish soramimi’? Because the singer’s Engrish is bad, its inherent badness is Engrish, and my soramimi isn’t actual soramimi, it’s just a bad mondegreen. Why is it a bad mondegreen? Because the singer’s Engrish is bad.

But how can the singer’s Engrish be bad? ‘Call Me Maybe’ is an English song, sung by an English singer, right?

No, we’re not talking about ‘Call Me Maybe’… we’re talking about ‘Call Me Later’, a 1970s R&B song by FOXY.

Wait actually no that’s in English too wait that’s not right

It’s in bad Engrish when played backwards»

(TL Note: ‘BURAKKU★ROKKU SHUUTAA (TV) EPISOODO NI DA, DOKO E ITTA NO? KIKOEMASU KA?’ means ‘I didn’t finish writing this Black★Rock Shooter (TV) Episode Two post… yet’ in English.)

(Post-Post Edit: Now I realize why this post was late. The episode wasn’t subbed when I published it. I hope you’ll forgive me. Without further ado, I present to you: this post.)

Hey guys, Katawa Shoujo update. So, uh, [SPOILER ALERT] here’s a whole user-made flowchart about every possible route in the game. He’s done it so you don’t have to play! …The number of choices actually seems quite small, but I don’t play visual novels, so I wouldn’t know! =3=

Unlike THE LYRICS GOD ONLY KNOWS CHALLENGE, I actually know the lyrics of this OP, so it was harder to make it not make sense.

tl;dr: here are the lyrics to the persona 4 opening. it’s about what i dream when i sleep
