Megathread Poor Localization Compilation Thread

Some dubs are not as bad. But that's me thinking of few ones like Jojo, My Hero Academia, and Boruto in terms for present ongoing ones. Liked that Pop Team Epic dub. Seen clips from Osomatsu-san and thought it was decently funny in English.

That's the funny thing about all this, they think we can't get anime or anything else without them. They truly think they are the single point of contact for foreign countries, and it make me laugh every time one of them has a complete meltdown when they find out some rando on the internet circumvented their little empire.

While sort of off topic, I also noticed something in the last few years that they're starting to "localize" western animation too. I recently finished the Invincible comic because that's what I always do when I hear about a series getting an animation. Only to find out they changed nearly every character from the comic, some to the point of being not even comparable to the original, with the excuse of "adaptation". It occurs to me that they don't just want to attempt to take down the US side of the anime industry, they want to take down everything. The best part is that they don't even get that they're only harming themselves.

Well then they will have a rude awakening. Not only can real fans get anime other ways than their dumb asses, but the can not only get the superior version, they can GET IT FOR FREE. The couldn't successfully compete with the torrents and fansubs to begin with and then they even have the audacity to spit and mutilate the stuff they try to sell. If anything, real fans would get a massive erection if they were gone tomorrow. Them thinking we desperately need them only shows how much they overvalue themselves while being literally hated by the majority of real and non-normalfag fans.

Jup. But remember. "Don't ever interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake". Let them drive their middleman weeb censorship company into the abyss, and then pray that there won't be any new middlemen companies that would take their place (maybe for a few years some new ones could actually be good, run by real fans but we all know that in half a decade the new ones would just turn into shitstains that we are dealing with right now with FM & CR)

The amount of anime I have watched in the seven seas way surpasses the amount I watched through official shitty means. Like you mentioned in another post, when I first started watching subbed anime I thought the voices were weird. Nowadays I can't really go back to dub except in some very rare cases (which haven't happened in a while). Also in my opinion Japanese voice actors are way more expressive than these woke dubbers.

Exactly, there is no reason to help them, especially when their failure is actually a good thing. Let them fail.

To add salt to injury, I don't know about FM but CR has a very shitty website. A horrible player. At the time, this was years ago, I unsubscribed from CR because of how shitty the thing was and how they didn't improve it. Recently I went to CR through a friend's account to take a look. It's essentially the same shit as it was years ago.

That part at the end is what gets me the most about those that constantly defend companies like CR. They haven't improved anything this entire time. I don't even know how you do that, I can't even comprehend not upgrading or at least fixing issues that have been around for years. At least with CR we know why they haven't done anything. They were too busy remodeling their office to be "modern", hiring a "diverse" (read as only white women) writing staff, and paying for a show that will now never see the light of day. This is a company that reported "1 million paid subscribers" in 2017 (it's now at 4 million) and they have nothing to show for it considering they got bought out.

If anyone needs a more recent example of how shit they truly are, just look at their latest shitshow from this year Ex-Arm. This is a show CR themselves pushed for as one of their "Crunchyroll Originals". It's good to know that not only does CR hire agenda driven idiots for "localizers", but they also hire producers that don't care about the product they're working on.

Speaking of shitty shows, you forgot about the rushed korean webcomics adaptations that were a complete flop :korone-smug:. Eh Crunchyroll, reminds me of the days when every single anime youtuber was shilling them out not just because they were "legal" lol, but also because they support the industry which is the most laughable statement from that community to this day:kekw:. Even mecha genre is dead or muh piracy bad are not as bad

Don't forget about their voice "actors" and other staff who pushed "If you're in a region where you can't legally watch anime, fuck you if you pirate anime".

Let's gooooo! I was wondering why I wasn't seeing shitty translation takes, and justification for bad subs anymore.

I guess she couldn't handle the "Love, cringe and other delusions" joke I made. Cause that was my only interaction.

What did you expect? Most faggots on Twatter are the same. They talk mad shit and piss people off and then in the end when they are called out, they have NO fucking confidence in their own argument and then block half of the people on that pisshole site. And the faggots known "Western localizers" are just another version of Twatter retards thinking their shit don't stick and they are "fixing" the author's OG work.

They are moralfags and it's gonna run like that for at least next 10 years. I always laugh every time I remember that she made several 10-post threads justifying their stupid localizations especially the one with "Big brudda" as if we couldn't get nii nii instead lol, it was even used in the VNs and then in the eng dub:kekw:. Lol it's so good that Dimitri made that 45-minute video about localizations in the west:yukari-salute:.

Even worse is that there are people who defend these morons. Anime "fans" that basically want no trace of Japanese in subs/dubs. It's this complete aversion to honorifics and similar smaller things that they refuse to have in "their" entertainment. I bet if an anime took place in Tokyo, they would prefer it is was changed to be in a western city or whatever. Even if Tokyo Tower was shown in the backgroud, "nah man, that's like a fictional city in the US".

This is something I can't quite understand. I actually enjoyed learning about some aspects of Japan through anime. Sure, it doesn't represent Japan accurately most of the time, but some things (like honorifics and their social hierarchy) you start to understand.

It's always easy to final the actual racists in the anime community, just ask if they're okay with major changes in games and shows or if they use the excuse "They have to change it, people won't understand what those cultural customs mean!"

Fuck me lets hope not and that all this woke cancer is purged way sooner. Also I wonder if that dumb hag copy pasted the channel name of McJuggerNuggets' older brother who has the exact name for his channel (BigBrudda).

This just shows how these toxic normalfag fake fans don't give a flying fuck about the hobby they are invading and just are jumping on the newest trend to then post selfies online with the currently popular stuff to score virtual browny points that are the very definition of worthless. And also you are right, majority of those retards have a bad case of cultural imperialism syndrome. If anything from another country or part of the world finds it's way in front of their stupid faces and they see that some parts of the culture or customs that the people in the "thing" have are different to their own, they flip their shit, first throw a fuck ton of buzzwords at the thing and the people who created it and then they try to witchhunt and IRL harrass the people involved in the things creation. And yes cucks in the community are the definition of traitors and should be thrown out and gatekept just like those woke faggots themselves if not even more.

RGE explained it perfectly. None of any niche hobby's communities were toxic until these motherfuckers invaded it, started smearing their retarded woke politics shit all over the place, and then got their shit pushed back in as a retaliation from the fans for attacking and demonizing them and their hobbies.
Also, if those motherfuckers are too lazy to learn a few words from a different language and a small part of another culture, then maybe they don't deserve to be in the hobby at all.

Yeah, I'm gonna stick to nicher things/communities and keep these people out. I don't want the things I like to be shat on and destroyed. I don't think anything mainstream can be salvaged anymore, I'm too tired being bait n' switched so many times:hinata-acid:

It's quite funny you should mention this, because that's exactly what happened to the Ace Attorney series back in the day. And then Dai Gyakuten Saiban came out and they found that they wrote themselves into a corner because it's difficult to localize a Japanese man in fucking Great Britain :hibiki-chew:

Arguably, back then (20, 15 years ago?; big fucking caveat here) it was fine because Western audiences had limited access to Japanese media and things arguably had to be made more palatable (though not jelly-filled donuts level of palatable).

Now, though, enough of us know about Japanese culture and can get it from the source, so there's no more excuses. And the only ones left arguing for these types of changes are the ones trying to make everything more mainstream, and we know what happens when things get mainstream...
