IMDb won't accept a review with Japanese names

IMDb won't accept my review of a Japanese movie because it thinks the Japanese names are spelling errors. This is a real shame. I explicitly included these names so that viewers could more easily learn who was playing the characters. This seems like a major defect that should have been corrected a long time ago.

As far as spelling, it should warn you and offer you suggestions, but you can submit without correcting them. Are you sure it's not accepting because of that? There are plenty of reviews with spelling mistakes and names in them. Something is wrong if it's not accepting because of that. Can you print-screen and upload an image (using the little camera icon in your reply) of the page saying it's not being accepted with the names in it?

I just tested it and did not find any defect that needs to be fixed and I am sure if that were the case, someone would have mentioned it by now.
