Do we really need to have this be a Self-Demonstrating Article? I feel that, in this case, it's detrimental to the article's overall readability.

Can someone tell me why this article has such a huge Japanese slant? It's not like the Japanese are the only ones who use Gratuitous English.

I realise accuracy typically doesn't matter much here, but blatant falsehoods should perhaps be corrected. The line "That's in contrast to Chinese or French, whose speakers favor making new words based on Chinese or French rather than using foreign words." is simply untrue.

While the formal bodies that determine the "official" versions of those languages reject English loanwords, they are commonplace in the language use of virtually all native speakers of Chinese and especially of French.

The Anime & Manga page ought to have the image of an orange from One Piece anime episode 322 with the tagline: "A ORANGE?!"

What about the Japanese version of Cardcaptor Sakura?

All the Clow cards names is in English.

The Manga was also released in English and Japanese in japan to help japanese children learn English and is was discontinued in Japan because people outside of Japan was importing the english manga

Perhaps an extra section should be created for titles of anime and manga? I suspect this trope is very common there.
  • Mahō Shōjo (=Magical Girl) Lyrical Nanoha
  • Kidō Tenshi (=Battle Doll) Angelic Layer

... more?

In a world where Anglish and High Icelandic exist, you'd think somebody would have some sort of objection to this phenomenon.
