Is it, or are you just not familiar enough with varieties of Japanese/Japonic languages yet?
This reminds me of how when I see stuff in Lakshadweep Malayalam, which is one of the most divergent varieties of Malayalam there is (if it can even be considered Malayalam at all at this point), it honestly makes me laugh sometimes just because it looks insane when compared directly to the standard language. My favorite example is something like this:
English translation: He had been staying at our house.
Standard Malayalam: [ɲəˈŋəɭʊɖe ˈʋiːʈɪl əˈʋɛn ɪɾʊn̪n̪ɪʈɔɳˈɖaːjiɾʊn̪n̪u].
Lakshadweep Malayalam: [əˈŋa ˈoːɖa oːn lət͡ʃɯˈnaːna].
I get the impression that is mostly a case of some crazy-ass reduction going on there. (Of course, it only looks crazy when you conveniently forget that this variety has been geographically separated from mainland Kerala for about a thousand years
