Rage Against Fansubs (part 2)



Some random anime from OtaKing’s Fansub Documentary

If you’re new to watching anime in subs, how would you feel if terms like onee-san, onii-chan, oya-san, omae, boku, Kazuki-sama, etc, etc, were all left in? Would you know those words in first hand? I’m sure many people will be like, “What the fuck does that mean? Is that in the dictionary?” I don’t understand what kind of epiphany these fansubbers go through just leaving these words untranslated when those can easily be translated. What I mean by translated is from Japanese to fucking English words, not romaji. Who do these people think they are? Retards? Weeaboos? Once again, I like to say go take a fucking class if you want to learn Japanese. It’s like this one friend of mine who gave me a fucking untranslated GTO manga as a souvenir from Japan or when an anime convention gives you a random volume of Cross Game manga untranslated. There was one time where I was about to go crazy because no fansubbers have ever translated the word “Itadakimasu.” Yes, I know it’s something you say before eating, but what freaking hell does that mean? I’ve googled the definition and found, “I humbly and/or thankfully receive (this meal).” Ok, a little for the translation but that’s what editors are for. I mean do they have to be so damn literal word by word and not take the risk of wording things around? Professional subbers will always find a way to properly translate what fits the situation. I’m thankful for existence of anime DVDs. No one wants (insert name)-“sama” instead of “Lord” (insert name), right? ^_^
