A disgruntled viewer is suing Japan's national broadcaster for "mental distress" caused by an excessive use of words borrowed from English.

Hoji Takahashi, 71, is seeking 1.4 million yen ($14,300; £9,300) in damages from NHK.

He may reject English loanwords, but he has clearly assimilated the greatest Americanism of them all - frivolous lawsuits.

But hey, automatic English dub.
