    Everyone speaks Japanese b\c its a Japanese publication it is a Japanese persons view of a world its just like any other cartoon plenty American movies take place in ancient Rome and blah blah yet they speak english and not Latin for example. And on another note lets not pretend as if almost every anime character doesn't look white or the protagonist has blond hair. Either the Japanese have an obsession with europeans or thast ust their style of art and the different hair colors are more creative and versatile then the avg Japanese persons hair which is black. In conclusion its a japanese production so its a japanese world in language and sometimes in custom everyone Soull Society is not japanese. end.
    Meh.

    Maybe Soul Society just favours the Japanese.
    Precisely. And some of those renowned cases where they amazingly are expert foreign Japanese speakers are Roberto Zedinho (Brazil) in Captain Tsubasa, Road to 2002; Syaoran (Hong Kong) from Card Captor Sakura and so on. It's just for the sake of the anime, people. There has to be a standard language...it's quite obvious it just wouldn't look right that all the people there spoke different languages.

    Maybe Japan is copying Soul Society and not the other way around!

    oh god! this is too funny to pass off... if there were an english shingami...then he'd be wearing one of those tall furry hats....ROFLMAO! he'd be all "god save the queen! charles!" (when releasing shikai)! oh god! ROFLMAO!!!! i think i wet myself.....and his bankai would be a microphone... to talk his way out of a fight...wither that or a huge ass keg, with a pourer/ draught to drown his enemies in "lager" or "bitter" or whatever it is he/she drinks....

    Still, you have to admit that it's a funny idea, if you trim away the blatent ignorance/jingoism he used. (Which was the purpose of my post)

    this is somewhat interesting but our death gods would have black suits, ties and shades
    OMG JENOVA!

    Also, if you were to actually westernize the concept of the Shinigami, you'd call them "Angels of Death", like they did in hellsing. (Well, M7 doesn't, but other groups did) It's the closest translation of the idea "death god"/"god of death"

    yeah if you want a western story.... Read a western comic book.
    It has a japanesse flavor because thats what manga readers WANT.

    Manga has people from western civilizations in it, but they still think like Japanesse people.... Or do Latinos really think less of themselves if there friends get stronger than they are?
