Localised content

to be fair this has been happening for some time now, just that up until this point almost no one had gone tru the problems of archiveing all the bs these guys do

they will.
and hey who cares if it's something that a lot of us don't necessarily like, it's still bs that's related to localizers being shitty so why would i not help you?
a lot of these people are either partisan hacks, incapable of the understanding of cause and effect, or a combination of both
they don't speak out against it because it is wrong to vandalize works that are not yours but because it is adversely affecting them at the moment

We help them and they immediately go back to defending the same shitty localizations like it never happened
I will gladly point out the hack localizers and hold them accountable, but when they want my help, i will respond, No

we must also gatekeep our cause, I want to ally with people who find this practice unethical i will ally not with some fujo who is just pissy because her favorite yaoi VN is riddled with shitty memes

"enemy of my enemy is my friend" and all that, personally as long as someone holds the same principles of being anti-censorship as a core value I could not care less what their background is as long as they are willing and able to take a stand regardless of what's being affected. being anti-censorship should not be a partisan stance and people from any and all sides should hold it.

the problem comes when you got fake ass fuckers who claim to be anti-censorship but only care when it's something they like getting the axe, or won't stand for some things cuz they find them personally distasteful, these are the people you need to watch out for. even tho they will fight with you as long as it befits them they can and will stab you in the back given the chance.

on the subject of gatekeeping. even tho it might be a bit off-topic to the thread I think its relevant to the issue

dev put out a very interesting video on gatekeeping and I think it would be good for people to give it a watch as I think it applies to the issues we are having in the things we enjoy and to how these Localizers operate

they are the gatekeepers

I much prefer razorfist's opinion on the piece he does draw similar conclusions


we do have a difficult problem, these people worm their way in (typically through nepotism) and use their newfound positions to move more of their guys in. Unlike say, razor with battletech who just has to push these fakes out, we have to uproot them from entrenched positions

for example, the zack davidsson guy does not appear to be doing many offensively bad translation jobs (as he is likely under professional scrutiny and trying to do even an 1/8 what his buddies do on a regular basis would make his employers very angry and have his ass blacklisted immediately) But i would bet money that he certainly pulls all the strings he has to get his buddies from his circlejerk into places and push his opposition out seeing how well acquainted and friendly he is with regular offenders

Well if think this is bad what she has done, check this out.

The H-Game known as Oral Lessons With Chii-chan which is published by FAKKU has butchered the dialogue done by that person you're speaking about.
She also admitted to translate the game 3 years ago.
Tweet || Archive

Also, big shout out to DarkMahesvara for providing the screenshot of the in-game dialogue.
Just found out recently that person has put her Twitter account on protected mode.

Now I assume it got to do with the post I made two days ago; that a lot of people from Twitter saw my post, and decided to call her out. Which is why she put her account on protected mode, but I don't know if it's true since I don't have a Twitter account and use that site anymore because the place is a shithole.

I suspect it was more because of her answer on the app Retrospring. She seems to be so full of herself that she claims that anybody that goes against the mainstream are ignorant, entitled people. Fans are entitled, it seems... when they don't agree with the mainstream wokeifiying your hobbies. We're also supposed to be ignorant according to her when it comes to the process on why things are censored, while actually most of us know but just don't want to accept it on the principle that something shouldn't be altered because of a fake perception of sexualization.

holy fucken shit the projecting

for all the talk about "entitlement," she sure does feel entitled to me buying the shit she works on

news flash sweety. as I said in the thread on the game that I think I linked at some point. if the devs want to abandon R18 and go all ages for mass appeal more power to them. that's their choice. just as it's my choice to not want to buy or support them for making that choice as I'm not interested in whatever "experience" they are selling. as the consumer, I have the right to vote with my wallet and if I don't like what a company is doing enough I can pull my support for them and their product. it's not "entitlement" to have standards for what I spend what little money I have on.

if the game had content, and then you remove that content regardless of what it is. it loses value, im not going to buy a full cake only to find out im only going to be getting 3/4 of the cake cuz the baker did not like how the rest of it looked

also this quote is crack up, "i got into R-18 games work and hate how people complain about lack of R-18 in games its so annoying"

had a good lol

Glad I'm not the only one thinking localizers are becoming sketchy as of late.

I'm probably in the minority with this concern but I kinda fear with Seven Seas picking up alot of crossdressing stories (and labeling them all "LGBT"") they might try some underhanded shit with the character and maybe try and insert "hints" they're trans or something.

The crossdressing stories they picked up are a typical Boy x boy (boys love).

The strangest part about this? They do have a BL section. But only when theres a crossdresser involved they call it LGBT.

you can pretty much go and see for yourself.

I can't speak for all their titles, but Manga wise Seven Seas is usually pretty good with their translations. At least ecchi wise I haven't noticed anything pozzed.

seven seas has officially admitted to editing their LN's their manga i can only assume are equally as compromised
dont know if it is due to corporate or ideological reasons though

I also would not be shocked if this master price had something to do with this change

they didn't have the guts to summon their voldemort even if it meant owning teh gamers
funny how one anon shitposter has had so much of an impact, probably because he lifted up a giant rock and everyone got to see the insects scatter, those guys had to know that improper handling of the situation would have caused a gamergate scale event for dubs and translation

he also made a cameo in arguably the best western doujin ever (359126 BTW)

I often hear that NIS America is a shitty localizers but no one ever explained why so does anyone here knows? I've been interested in Disgaea and want to know how bad it is before I drop any money on it.

You should be safe with Disgaea, they give that series the white glove treatment as it's one of their flagship titles. NIS America has often censored games in the past, their explanation often being global ratings boards as the reason for it, most noteworthy were mugen souls and criminal girls. They also often aged up characters from 15 to 18, they did this in atelier and other gust studio series when they still had a partnership with them.

There is a list on the internet that sums up how scummy they are. Sadly, I can't find it at the moment. But they for instance have released broken games, scammed people with DLC, they also admitted that they let their translators roam free to add anything they want, from memes to other bullshit.

Then there was this.

they're one of the worst localizers in the industry and their practices often times extend beyond just censoring and altering things. there's actually a list of the shit they did in the past though it's quite outdated and they most likely fucked over more games since it's creation.

Then I guess you just aren't into crossdressing stories much as I am and not noticing what they're trying to attempt here.

Like I said I'm in the minority with this concern it seems. Everybody wants to protect their favorite ecchi VNs and LNs but it's kinda silent when trans people constantly try and take traps/crossdressers/femboys away from us and trying to subvert them to be troons.

I see, sorry I didn't read your post closely enough. That is concerning, but you're right, I don't follow crossdressing stories all that much.
