Actually the name of the game is not (I can not stress this enough) Tatsumaki Online... That was our first domain that I will be letting expire, the name of the game is Tatsumaki: Land at War.
People have asked why I translated it with Kanji and Katakana instead of all kanji or kanji + hiragana... The simplest answer is this: The english name is Tatsumaki (Japanese word): Land at War (English phrase), so its only fair to translate it in a similar way, as to mix two languages together.
We never planned to release Tatsumaki in Japan*, so the kanji/kana title is just for show.

*Thats not to say we won't ever release it in Japan; we may actually do this if it becomes popular enough, but thats a whole other problem we have to deal with later.

Lol look likes someone is either from Japan or takes the Japenese culture very seriously.

Welcome to the community!

this might be a little late to bring this up... but i found this in the wiki.
:boggled: "Rando Atto Uoo"? :boggled: I don't get it.....

ランドアットウオー (Rando atto uoo) is pronounced in Japanese as, R/L-ando Atoh Oar. So i think ランドアツワル and ランドアットウオー would work. (I like "Rando Atu Waru" better though)

Im sure in the culture 'R' is pronounced as an awkawrd "L".

Cause my Japanese teacher pronounces Kuraku as 'Ku - la - ku'. (Yes its my name in Japanese.)

It can be pronounced either way. It depends on where in japan you are. But most of the time it sounds like a cross between r and l. (like in spanish- sort of)
