comment Who decides what katakana will be used to form English loan words?
@LucasTizma: I understand your reasoning now. However, like any language, there is a natural tendency to use certain combinations of sounds, and if a word does not fit that pattern, then it is "adjusted" accordingly. Basically, what you are saying ("it should match as closely to the original") is going against the grain of nature.

comment Who decides what katakana will be used to form English loan words?
a Japanese-English speaker would be able to best form a loan word. You're making the mistake that Katakana should reflect the original pronunciation of the language it originated from. Imagine if you mandated everyone in America to pronounce "karaoke" the original way it is pronounced in Japanese, language doesn't work like that.

+1: The other answers don't actually answer the question. There are meetings held every year to regulate loan words and neologisms including the spelling.

No one decides really. Well, actually the government regulates a lot of the words.

comment What is that expression used to generally mean “…is what I would say, but…”?
I can only guess, maybe you are thinking of っていうか・っつぅか・ちゅうか.

comment <verb stem>+たかない
@TsuyoshiIto: Sorry if I offended you, I just was trying to point out the semantic difference between contracted and corrupted, the meaning is different. For example, I'm is the contracted form of I am in English, whereas Yah would be the corrupted form of Yes. I hope you understand the difference.

comment Alignment of people's names
@sawa: For some reason I knew you were going to say that. What I mean is you can make it 均等割り and then add extra spaces to get the same effect. Also, look at 2 character names in your example, for example 森誠 is spread out to both ends.

comment Alignment of people's names
@sawa: I looked at the pictures. They look like examples of 文字の均等割り付け, you could make alignment like that using excel.

@Dave: I added the image for the other link in my answer. However, as the first link mentions: 5字取りのやり方もそれぞれ違っていたりしますし, I think it will be very hard to find the exact way Sawa describes, unless we start talking about a specific movie and do stuff like contact the company that made it, etc...
