Huh, I wonder if there's an anime with that as its actual premise.

Well, basically same as that Vin Diesel movie titled XXX. Just include the name of somebody involved with it when you search on Google. Like "x clamp". Or use the alternate title X/1999

I make it a point to make sure my stories can be Google searched easily...

I don't think "Japanese title pun doesn't sound good when it's not in Japanese" is a valid reason for judging a title, so I disagreed with you. To which, you snapped back with a knee-jerk reaction, hence the "chillax".

It's a forum dude, I'm not asking you to agree with my disagreement.
I gave my reason for why I don't think your point is valid, and you gave your reason to why you have the sentiments. That's all that matters.
The problem here is in your delivery. Drop the “And this matters why?” and I would be totally okay with your disagreement. The above question/line of yours kinda implied that I don’t know what I was talking about (which kinda mocking me) when the answer to that question is already in my original post (given the nature of this thread): I think the title To-Love-Ru is bad because it’s strange and doesn't make any sense when Romanized. That should’ve been where I stopped if not for your “provocative question” imo. And no, I wasn't telling you to STFU either, so "chillax" for you too.

I love the concept, but what kind of a name is "Black Rock Shooter"?

I mean the "Black" part is obvious since every character in it has the color black heavily implemented into their design. "Shooter" I guess because the titular character uses mainly firearms to fight, but not every character.

Where does "Rock" come from though? I think I read somewhere the original concept for the character from huke said her cannon could shoot rocks, but I don't know if that's 100% true.

Still, even if there's some basis to it, it's still a pretty silly title.

English is kuuru nda.

Not a complaint, I love random Mandarin words too...

To me her the Rock Cannon seems like its made of some dense material, like some sort of rock. In the original designs at least.

"Black Rock Shooter" simply sounds cool, imo.

If your title isn't going to well-represent what the show/narrative is about, then the next best thing is for it to at least sound cool.

Just for the lolz, I looked for silly titles in a list at a watch anime site, and here's what I've found, plus my response to the title. Note: I have NOT seen most of these, I'm just giving my first response to the title:

11eyes- That's nine more eyes than you actually need.

Amagami SS- Does the "SS" mean anything?

Angelic Layer- As opposed to a demonic layer.

B'tX- did you just fall asleep on the keyboard or something?

Betterman- As opposed to Worseman.

Bleach- Because when I think shinigami with swords, I think laundry!

Brave King GaoGaiGar- Nice name, "King"

Bubblegum Crisis- How is that supposed to make any sense?

City Hunter- Is hunting those legal in this state?

D-Gray Man- Is this supposed to make any sense?

DearS- Mircosoft Help: You appear to be writing a letter. I'd recommend learning to use the space bar and finishing the name of the recipient.

Dragon Half- I suppose half a dragon is better than just its balls!

Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures- Isn't one Parallel Trouble Adventure isn't enough?

E/S Otherwise- More falling asleep on the keyboard?

eyeshield 21- What happened to eyeshields 1 through 20

Fate/Stay Night- Is this supposed to have some sort of meaning?

Fireball Charming- I find fireballs much less charming once they impact your face!

Fruits Basket- English grammar, do you use it?

Gosick- Engrish

Gungrave- Like that tomb that was actually filled with firearms in Terminator 3?

Guyver- Minus the Mc, and the improvised escapes.

Happiness!- As good a concept as it sounds, any good plot needs problem somewhere.

Hayate the Combat Butler- Guy can't be doing to well- not much demand for combat butlers in the current economy.

I My Mi! Strawberry Eggs- Eggs come in strawberry flavor? Sweet!

Ikkitousen Xtreme Xecutor- Xtraneous X's

Jojo's Bizarre Adventures- Very bizarre indeed.

Kill Me Baby- Actually quite fitting. That's what I think every time I hear the opening.

Legend of the Legendary Heroes- Redundancy of the Redundant Redundancy

Little Busters!- Like smaller versions of the crash dummy on Mythbusters?

Lovely Complex- That's a lovely complex you have there.

Madlax- Looks like it belongs in a drug store next to the Exlax and Metamucil!

Magical Angel Creamy Mami- What, this isn't about Mami from Madoka getting covered in whipped cream?

Maria Holic- Your addicted to Maria?

MM!- You mean this isn't a candy?

My Wife is a High School Girl- Is that even legal?

Needless- That title doesn't make me want to watch this.

One Piece- I'm partial to bikini's myself

Penguin Girl- So is this kinda like Ika Musume?

Pumpkin Scissors- Are these what you use to carve Jack-o-lanterns?

Rental Magica- Rent a Mahou Shoujo?

S-Cry-Ed- Not random enough for sleeping on the keyboard.

Saber Marionette- Is it a puppet that doubles as a sword or a puppet with a sword?

School Rumble- What exactly rumbles in this anime?

Science Ninja Team Gatchaman- It's ninjas... WITH SCIENCE!

Speed Grapher- Sounds like a spreadsheet program.

Turn A Gundam- How does one turn a Gundam? With the control surfaces I suppose...

Zettai Shounen- Absolute Boy? How does this make any sense in either language?

The meaning of D.Gray-man is kind of vague. It apparently refers to the main character who sees "the black and white world."

Turn A Gundam! Must resist the "One does not simply" meme!!

Another one I remember is Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. I dare you to write this 10 times in a notebook within a minute without making a mistake.

Also this is not a title but character in Katekyo Hitman Reborn! is named Shitt. P ....Hello?

I think SS means Side Stories or something like that. Seems appropriate due to the nature of the anime itself.

There's Daa! daa! daa! as well (I suppose that refers to the sound a baby makes? ). The English title "UFO Baby" makes much more sense.

I think its generally written as "King of Braves". I guess it's supposed to sound regal or badass.

Tomoe is probably named after Creamy Mami (or Esper Mami), given the age. It does sound like a porno, though.

Just found this thread today.

I'll add Uta no Prince-sama - Maji Love 1000% to the list. If you look up the full title in Japanese, it's うたの☆プリンスさまっ♪ マジLOVE1000%. I nearly got a heart attack just from looking at the title really.

Durarara!!

I don't even know what it's suppose to do with the series or what it's suppose to mean
moreover, what's even funnier is that in the light novels, the number of "ra"s increase by the volume lol
but it's one hell of an awesome series though

It's suppose to be a pun (or something) of a Dullahan.

You know how L and R are pronounced the same in Japanese?

SilverSyko: Black Rock Shooter pertains to the titular character whose main weapon shoots rocks.

Quote:

Angelic Layer- As opposed to a demonic layer. It might actually be an Angelic Lair, which probably refers to the field where Angels fight on.

B'tX- did you just fall asleep on the keyboard or something? B't (beat) is a term used to describe the "machines" used by the fighters there. The protag Teppei Takamiya's B't is called X.

Betterman- As opposed to Worseman. Wikipedia says "The titular hero of the series, Betterman, is a life form of superior physical and mental capabilities...", thus Betterman is better than the usual human lifeform.

Bleach- Because when I think shinigami with swords, I think laundry! Wikipedia says "The series was originally meant to be named "Black" due to the color of the Soul Reapers' clothes, but Kubo thought the title was too generic. He later tried the name of "White," but came to like "Bleach" more for its association with the color white and that he did not find it too obvious."

Brave King GaoGaiGar- Nice name, "King" Original name is Yuusha no Oh GaoGaiGar, so it's supposed to mean "King of Heroes GaoGaiGar".

Bubblegum Crisis- How is that supposed to make any sense? "Bubblegum" carries the connotation of femininity, and ties up with the fact that the operators of the powered suits are girls or women.

City Hunter- Is hunting those legal in this state? It's in the sense of "Hunter in the City". The protag is a hired gun, although his missions involved taking down syndicates or bad guys in particular.

D-Gray Man- Is this supposed to make any sense? see amaterasu4's post.

DearS- Mircosoft Help: You appear to be writing a letter. I'd recommend learning to use the space bar and finishing the name of the recipient. Wikipedia says, "150 humanoid aliens are naturalized into Japanese society and affectionately nicknamed "DearS"; a portmanteau of the words "Dear" and "Friends"."

Dragon Half- I suppose half a dragon is better than just its balls! Main character is a half-dragon. Wikipedia says, "Much of the manga contains references to role-playing games and occasionally either other manga or anything that begins with the word dragon."

Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventures- Isn't one Parallel Trouble Adventure isn't enough? Dual! is the main title, and the PTA is a subtitle.

eyeshield 21- What happened to eyeshields 1 through 20 Sena Kobayakawa, number 21 of the Devil Bats football team, wears an eyeshield to protect his eyes when he is performing his high-speed maneuvers.

Fate/Stay Night- Is this supposed to have some sort of meaning? It's Engrish for "That Fated Night You (Saber) Stayed Here (Shirou's house).

Fruits Basket- English grammar, do you use it? See the game Fruits Basket Turnover.

Gosick- Engrish for Gothic. Although the period has just left the Victorian age and is nearing the modern age.

Gungrave- Like that tomb that was actually filled with firearms in Terminator 3? The main protag is named Beyond the Grave, formerly Brandon Heat. He sports a pair of guns that have a grave design on it.

Guyver- Minus the Mc, and the improvised escapes. The Guyver, in this case, is a powered suit worn by the main character, among others.

Hayate the Combat Butler- Guy can't be doing to well- not much demand for combat butlers in the current economy. Hayate is actually a combat butler. He kicks ass.

I My Mi! Strawberry Eggs- Eggs come in strawberry flavor? Sweet! Strawberries pertain to femininity, while eggs are a boy's "family jewels". The main char is a boy who is forced to crossdress to be admitted as a teacher to a school with a misandrist administration.

Ikkitousen Xtreme Xecutor- Xtraneous X's The sequels of Ikkitousen have subtitles with two words starting with the same letter.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventures- Very bizarre indeed. And fabulous.

Kill Me Baby- Actually quite fitting. That's what I think every time I hear the opening. The girl protag is friends with an assassin. And since this is a comedy, black comedy ensues between the two.

Legend of the Legendary Heroes- Redundancy of the Redundant Redundancy The story is supposed to be about the legend of the legendary heroes.

Little Busters!- Like smaller versions of the crash dummy on Mythbusters? They're supposed to be crimebusters or something close to that.

Lovely Complex- That's a lovely complex you have there. Complex here carries the same meaning as that of "lolita complex".

Madlax- Looks like it belongs in a drug store next to the Exlax and Metamucil! Madlax is the name of one of the characters there.

Magical Angel Creamy Mami- What, this isn't about Mami from Madoka getting covered in whipped cream? see Shyni's post.

Maria Holic- Your addicted to Maria? Pretty much.

MM!- You mean this isn't a candy? Double the masochism.

Needless- That title doesn't make me want to watch this. The people who live in the Dark Spot are considered as "unneeded" by the people outside, so they are called Needless.

One Piece- I'm partial to bikini's myself They say it's a treasure. Three million chapters later, they still haven't reached it.

Penguin Girl- So is this kinda like Ika Musume? The female protag is nicknamed "Penguin" due to her hairstyle and it doesn't help that her surname literally reads as "south pole".

Pumpkin Scissors- Are these what you use to carve Jack-o-lanterns? The series focuses on the Imperial Army State Section III, also known as the Pumpkin Scissors unit, in a war period setting.

Rental Magica- Rent a Mahou Shoujo? Yes. You nailed it on the head.

S-Cry-Ed- Not random enough for sleeping on the keyboard. The word "scry" means "To predict the future using crystal balls." There is an emphasis in the word "CRY".

Saber Marionette- Is it a puppet that doubles as a sword or a puppet with a sword? Any puppet that has combat capabilities.

School Rumble- What exactly rumbles in this anime? The school, due to the antics of its students.

Science Ninja Team Gatchaman- It's ninjas... WITH SCIENCE! Why not?

Speed Grapher- Sounds like a spreadsheet program. Speed is due to the intense nature of the series, while Grapher comes from the male protag's occupation as a former war photographer.
Great! That should have blasted that darn Frodo to smithereens.

I think this thread is just here for people to take stones and fling it at the littlest flaw they find in a show they find as "bad". Someone should take this down, it's worthless.

It is onomatopoeia of a motorcycle engine. And the helmet chick rides a motorcycle.
