Japanese is awesome, English is dumb.

Whatever! Maelstrom's Bolt is so much shorter and less blah than heavenly drum thunder sound lightning slash!

Japanese was just excessive with those names!

I hope you know that is just the literal translation of all kanji, hiragana and katakana and not what is necessarily meant. Just as Omnislash is literally not Omnislash but "Chōkyūbushinhazan" which is like "Super-Ultimate Arts of War-God Supreme-Slash".

They even make Fran's quickenings sound slightly cooler. The boring "Whip Kick" is now "Strong Armor Destroying Point Kick". "Feral Strike" is now "Chaotic Splitting Deadly Palm".

You have to love Basch's "Flame Purge" though. It's retitle is "100 Demon Scorching Sun of Crushing Evil". Very funny!
