Dakazu...I hate to nitpick but the pronunciation of cao cao sounds closer to chow chow not cow cow. Qin dynasty also sounds closer to chin not shin.

Don't tell the Japanese man how to say Chinese names. They took that shit and made it their own.

Is that really how the Japanese pronounce those names? Cause it sounded like he was saying it like a white person.

Japanese pronunciation of Cao Cao is "Sou Sou". Liu Bei is " Ryu bi" and Lu Bu is "Ryo Fu"

I usually say Cow Cow because that's how English speaking people(who are white) say it and our podcast is in English.
