Working Title: Language of Magic: From YKTTW
thausgt: I recall a singularly silly anime in which the bad-guy mage cast spells by yelling Japanese tonguetwisters. "My grandmother's (okaa-san no
) guest (o-kyaku-san o
) eats a lot of (takusan o
) persimmons!" equaled "I cast fireball spell!" Watching the sub-translations while listening to the Japanese original left no room in my brain to remember what the show was called. Can any of the other tropers name this mystery show, or at least provide a better translation of the tonguetwister?
