They treat you like royalty with just a hint of sarcasm.

Hey, it’s the redlight district. If you have the money they call you “Your royal highness” and call your endowment “Gigantor”

Say “Welcome to Shinjuku, Voldemort”. Fear of a name leads to fear of the thing itself.

I’ve been to that shopping center. And other in the MYLORD chain up and down the Odakyu line.

They could have at least been a bit classier and called it “MYLIEGE” or something like that, to make it sound sorta medieval in character!

Hmmm…. it seems too easy. Are we sure this isn’t a French surrender in disguise of a Japanese sign?

What do you guys think? Do you seriously think that this is a funny mistake? no, non ,no, no… See this is intentional. In this day and age so many malls are serving the commoners that the nobility had to create their own supermarkets. That market is no place for knaves! Even the cashiers are pages and squires trained in nobleman’s courts.

Funny thing, though… The Japanese text actually translates as “Welcome to Shinjuku My lord”! Where “Shinjuku my lord” in its entirety is indicated as the location.

…Okay, it says miroodo but it’s in Katakana which likely makes it a loanword and for some reason my supreme digital dictionary can’t figure out what it means. So it might as well mean my lord.

Oh no, the Society for Creative Anachronism has taken over Shinjuku. (Sorry, I have a bad case of Anachrophobia.)
