I dislike hanlons razor
It causes you to underestimate your opponent and it doesnt matter if a person hits you with a car out of negligence or malice
You were still hit by a car

There is absolutely nothing a member of the clique could do that the others members would not jump in to defend
They will piss on you, tell you it is raining, and when you disagree with that assertion, challenge your understanding of the concept of rain

This is for 2 reasons
-friend/enemy distinction
-maintaining translation hegemony

Luckily she is not only an idiot in addition to being malicious where she cannot shut her mouth and everytime she does, she further drives the reputation of the field further into the dirt and attracts more onlookers
So much in fact that im surprised her friends havent told her to shut the fuck up

Shit on her, spread her idiocy and show this is what passes for a 'professional' in the industry

It is fun to watch that this botchjob has attracted fujo wrath
I dont consider them allies as they are mad at the botch job not the unethical practices involved so they will go back to not caring when it blows over but it has been entertaining

>"Criticism over mistranslation of a manga =/= Bullying and harassment"

Either these localizers are in a denial, or they just don't care.
It's like "oh we got some non-person's works and slapped our MESSAGE in and people are complaining so i'm ignoring ugh how annoying that people who don't know japanese can even check where we made the MESSAGE in instead of the non-person's works..."

They really don't like to acknowledge it's NOT THEIR WORK, NOT THEIR CHARACTERS, NOT FUCKING TUMBLR FICTION MADE TO MAKE THEM FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES.

wake the fuck up samurai, if we can get this verified it's time to get motivated. this could be big news
It would be more surprising if there wasn't a list. It happened in gamergate with the gamesjournospro mailing list and it is no secret how interconnected they are with each other

standard tactic
they lost badly here and now are tossing out the cliche harassment and bullying claims to cover the retreat

I have been listening to some chatter and I think it is a safe assumption that this incident gave them a nasty black eye

they will likely tend to their wounds for a little bit and wait for the heat to die down
after that you can expect some optics building to try to garner back some reputation
then expect to see a counterattack like how persons X and Y were given death threats and harassed, maybe some articles fellating localizers accompanied with some 'gamers are dead' articles where the people critical of shit translations are dumb. mean. and that they are not your audience

Lmao, just found out Seven Seas has quietly delayed Vol. 2 of I Think I Turned My Childhood Friend Into a Girl without the public notice, that was supposed to be released September this year to February next year after they got caught butchering the manga series.
Seven Seas || Archive (1) || Archive (2)

dont let them sweep this under the rug. they prob want to try and sort this out quietly

we should be taking the gambs stance, scorched earth until they put their foot down and show these dumb fucks what they do has consequences

(archive)

also, we should be not only yelling at them but also the Japanese publisher as they opened up for people to seed feedback after people contacted the artist. it seems doing this is working and prob making the JP side apply pressure on them to do something

The Mangaka was happy to have their manga published overseas for the first time, only for it to be translated by a pronouns in bio parasite and having all this happen.
That retard localizer should actually apologize to the author instead of tweeting about the chuds.

While they are busy licking their wounds we should also prep our offensive and give them another good kick in the teeth

We can assume that all the western branches of the companies are compromised there is no use doing anything from that angle, but as we see here the eastern side is completely unguarded and soft

Lets take a page out of strippu's book.
Take infographics like and localizer dumbassery, translate them to japanese (you can use MTL if you have to) and spread them out on social media to japanese users when the topic arises
Koisuru's mangaka for example might be interested in how much of a cesspool it is over here and how that is a common occurrence

Posting things like tokyo ghostlight's all property is theft and katrina dumbass ramblings like how it was totally ok for the translator to rewrite koisuru should be pretty eye opening

I'm new to the forum and I wanted to say that this is a fascinating look at the bullshit these idiots get away with. Google has an Arts and Culture section and they are talking about manga. They mention Rumiko Takahashi and her work. I was concerned with how Ranma would be interpreted by the pronoun brigade and it finally happened... they incorrectly claim that Ranma is "a character that tries to escape gender distinctions." No, Ranma is cursed to turn into a woman and he desperately tries to get rid of said curse. Is it too much to ask for an accurate description? This is getting out of hand and downrght ridiculous.
