I like the atrocious French better than the atrocious German or English. At least 15% of the reason I enjoyed Star Driver was that it featured characters screaming out their special moves in French, and the main character's robot seemed to have been designed as a tribute to Louis XIV.Anime does use France fairly often at least for inspiration. Usually with atrocious French.
Russian of varying degrees of atrocity seems to pop up now and again, too. There was the sushi chef in DRRR, an entire not-Russian country in Last Exile 2, and AKB0048* went to Space Russia last week.
* Which is a really weird show, in that it's explicitly an advertisement for an (even more horribly exploitative and manufactured than usual) idol group, features cute idols doing cute things in a zany science-fictiony setting, but also is full of subplots about how completely fucked-up and soul-destroying the idol business is. It's practically Cognitive Dissonance: the Animation at this point.
