    Good arc, lacking game

    Specifically in terms of how they carry over concepts from the games into their own narrative, resulting in what's honestly outshone its source material. There's a real element of danger in the XY Chapter. Particularly with the quintet being forced from their homes rather than voluntarily take...

    How many dubs have you seen in the last half decade? How many actually "insult their audience" outside of what you put forward? C'mon, man. You're smarter than this.

    "they never aimed the jokes at their audience" If their audience members were any of those they insulted, I'd beg to differ. Plus, Prison School and Hajimete No Gal in particular aren't exactly glowing examples of Otaku culture to begin with. They are very explicit jabs at nerds and geeks...

    I'm not "excusing" anything. I think those lines should've been left on the cutting room floor. Rather, I'm trying to have some perspective here. Are these examples really indicative of modern translation practices? Or are they just more of the same polarizing aspects of adapting Anime into the...

    Hell, the whole "Gamergate" thing was a tasteless joke in a tasteless Anime. Did you even watch Prison School? It's whack enough already. Overall, you're really being intellectually dishonest with me. You haven't even answered my questions.

    Now as to the politics inserted into the show... I've seen worse. I mean, the most you get is this one mention of "patriarchal" in Dragon Maid in this ten second scene. Nothing more, nothing less. It's jarring but I cannot see the deal breaking aspect to it when compared to the overall dub's...

    This is a Harem-Ecchi comedy that features the main character trying to get with a girl because she looks like a slut and simply wants that "sweet, sweet ass." On top of that, his Otaku BFFs are each unapologetic in their perversion with Minoru being an out and out pedophile. This show is...

    Now, by insulting fans, I'm going to assume you're referring to Hajimete No Gal's scene in Episode Seven where a sleazy manager is called out on his perversion. Except... that's kind of what happened in the original. Now granted, the whole "SJW" buzzwords sprinkled in wasn't in good taste... but...

    "but they still never assumed the viewer's politics or insulted them with petty name-calling." You... didn't watch Ghost Stories, did you? I mean, Momoko is nothing but a Republican punching bag in the dub. They never talk smack about Democrats.

    Also... "agenda pushing?" Those lines are barely ten seconds long. What's to push aside from a bad joke that made me roll my eyes?

    Have you seen these dubs for their overall quality? Have you seen any other dubs from the past half decade alone? Now... mistakes were made. I'm not trying to downplay this. However, I just cannot for the life of me see this as anything other that grasping for straws. This lacks... way too...

    So am I expected to, from those handful of examples you provide, automatically assume that all of FUNimation's (modern) dubs have this "agenda pushing" problem? From lines that are in a single scene in a single episode out of, what, ten to thirteen?

    I mean, you got Prison School. Okay. Dragon Maid. Perhaps. Hajimete No Gal? Sure. And then... that's about it as far as line that get the community up in arms. Bare in mind that FUNimation alone has dubbed multiple titles in any given year.

    You say, "official subbers" as if it's a wide-spread problem. Except... all I get are a handful of extreme cases. There are many translators working in Anime alone. How do you ascertain their general feelings on what they're considered professionals?

    Okay, I heard of the whole "social distancing" thing but... that's it? I mean, I'll take a solid ninety-five percent even if a one hundred would be preferable. Just a roll of the eyes and move on. I've seen worse by 4kids.

    The "One True Translation" myth

    I recently revisited The Cartoon Cipher's "Which Did You See First" video after Red Bard's big deep dive video on translation that got me thinking. This isn't necessarily about dubs vs. subs but the general misconception about translation in general. That the subtitles for any Anime you watch in...

    How to kill a character in a way that feels earned and not just, "Oh, they're gone," before moving on.

    What does it mean to kill a character?

    With the ongoing discussion of "Bury Your Gays" among media critics, I find myself thinking about knocking off my characters be they minor or major. The whole "Anyone can die" gimmick in many shows and movies are hooking for good reasons but they wear thin when a character you've been invested...
