Fans of the original material are likely to [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks get upset about or ignore the name changes]] (and some are legitimate {{Macekre}}s) but other fans have embraced (or at least tolerated) these name changes. It usually depends on how strong the culture/national pride in the original work comes out; European names on characters who are supposed to be Japanese and from Japan can seem a little odd. As well, some are not actually changes but a romanization or translation that is easier for foreign voice actors to replicate.

replicate. Also worth noting is that it's actually common practice for foreigners to adopt European names in real life because it's easier than having to explain how to pronounce their original name again and again. Japanese names are an exception because their naming convention is easier for European language speakers to grasp.
