By now, most of you would have probably read the shocking ( and confusing ) news….. An ultraman comic book was banned by the Malaysian Home Ministry or Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN) . No ? then read the story from thestar here or view the video below

Yes, it was because it contained the word “Allah”, which is subject to an ongoing court case in Malaysia at the moment. But when i first saw the picture above, the grammar did seemed to be a bit…robotic….
lo and behold…someone tested a direct translation from the actual japanese copy in google translator and here is the result
So…looks like the translation was done using Google translator.
Hmn…i wonder if this is how ultraman feels….
