For once, I wish Commie was subbing a show.
>>
Are they saying "riajuu"?

This would have been a perfect place to use "normalfag".
>>
>>101322250
Yes. That's the point.
>>
>>101322250
Yes, they said 'riajuu'.
I can't believe people pay for this shit.
>>
>>101322273
Also, that (lack of) typesetting.

And starting off a line with "--". At least use a single long dash "–", jeez.

Don't you mean 'the show', you fucking wetback piece of shit?
>>
>>101322551
No, I meant that this is the first time I have wanted Commie to sub a show. They would've happily used "normalfag" there.

Funimation fucking sucks.

Commie doesn't sub shit.

Are you retarded? His sentence is fine.

>>101322697
No, you idiot. It's the first time that I wished they subbed a show since I usually don't like their "liberalness."
>>
>>101322786
No, it's not you fucking dingus.

By using 'a' instead of 'the', the OP is implying commie never actually subbed a single show, he should have used 'the', which would indicate the OP's desire to see commie subbing this particular show.

It's fucking English 101, you fucking retard.

Lrn2articles in order to not look like a complete fucking moron.

Fuck off retard. His sentence is fkne. Tje most he could have done is then say "namely this one" but it isn't necessary.

No I know how to write, OP is a retard for misusing articles, if you think it's correct to use 'a' instead of 'the', I'll be more than glad to hear you out why. But if you're not gonna do that, I suggest you go back to your spic mother's cunt and die.
>>
>>101322976
You seriously are retarded, retard, his sentence implies that he's never wanted to Commie to sub a show because of the context so it was appropriate but I guess a retard can't understand context
>>
>>101323075
Nice run-on sentence, bro.

Seriously though, this is obviously bait.
>>
>>101323075
He's saying he's never wished Commie will sub a show before, not that they never have subbed a show before.

Seriously, read the OP again:
>For once, I wish Commie was subbing a show.
That doesn't mean
>For once, Commie should sub a show.
but
>I've never wanted Commie to sub a show before, but after seeing these shit Funi subs in the picture to the left, I, for the first time, want Commie to pick a show up.
You're supposed to know what show he's talking about by looking at the fucking picture.

HOW else would they translate it you fucking turbonerd?

>>101322882
You have no idea how English works. Think about how the word "a" has two different pronunciations and how they're used in different context.

I sort of wish TL notes were still a thing.

ChihiroDesuYo when?

I've been downloading HS 480p until they release. I like this show and want to just see it soon, but also don't want to spend ~500 MB per episode of Funimation crap.

And this time, the 480p copy cuts off a few minutes too early, right at an important point. Can someone tell me whether the 720p copy has everything right to the end?
>>
>>101323250
Normalfag.
>>
Who do they fucking hire for this shit? At least they have a competent editor who checks the script, right? R-Right?
>>
>>101323250
I can't believe this is an actual post.
>>
The best thing about this thread is how there were so many more people bitching about FFF using "normalfag" in the earlier episode, when this episode makes it plainly visible that it's the most correct translation.
>>
>>101323368
You want funi. A professional company. To use. 4chan slang. When. They're. Target. Audience. Will not understand. What it, means.

>>101323411
Which episode was that?

>>101323411
In Noragami? But everyone was shitting on the OP for implying that "normalfag" was the inferior translation.

>an equal amount
Not at all. There were maybe a couple of other guys supporting the OP, but most realized that normalfag fits the best.
>>
>>101323480
No, he has a point. They have normalfag paying costumers and are trying to localize in a way their audience will understand. We are not their target audience, and shouldn't even be watching their shit if possible.
>>
>>101323682
From a translation point of view, "normalfag" preserves the most meaning from "riajuu". Average joe, real-lifer, none of them can convey the negative connotation.
>>
What's the 4chan subgroup again?
>>
>>101323682
At least you can Google "normalfag".
>>
>>101323749
No.
>>
>>101323652
It's possible there were multiple threads about it, at different days or times.

>>101323682
I'd wager a majority of normalfags are dubs only because reading subs is too hard for them.
>>
>>101323682
The point is that the people talking in the screenshot are normalfags who wholly don't understand what "normalfag" means. You could call it whatever the fuck you want, and so long as their confusion shows through, it'd be fine. Both "normalfag" and "real-lifer" are equally foreign to them. That said, "riajuu" being Japanese internet discussion board slang would fit best being translated into English internet discussion board slang.
>>
>>101323682
That's not the point. Japanese normalfags won't understand riajuu either.
Changing that to fit the audience means they're literally altering the meaning of that line to prevent ruffling normalfag feathers.
>>
>>101323766
No what? No to eating meat? Are you a vegetarian? Fucking hipsters.
>>
Alternatively, Funi knew that "normalfag" is the superior translation but wanted to avoid it due to the potential un-PC connotations of ending anything in "-fag".

But this is probably giving Funi translators too much credit, given
>Just like a plan.
>>
>>101323775
>I'd wager a majority of normalfags are dubs only because reading subs is too hard for them.
Who pays for Funi subs then?
>>
Quality of the "translation" aside, they should be shot for using three lines.
>>
>>101323792
Then Japanese normal fags will take a guess by the combination of words. "Real" "Full" The fact that it is sarcastic will be lost on them the same way it is in the subs so having it as fag changes the meaning more than not having it.
>>
This thread is just sad.

We've got a random useless mudrace trying to school native speakers in English. This failed, so now he's in "I was just trollin' u" mode.

We've got people claiming that had Commie used "normalfag" in a sub they would have been fine with it. I have never heard such utter bullshit before on /a/. Had this actually happened, the "zomg fucking commie!" epick maymay would have reached a new level.

I suspect that they looked up what riajuu means.
> a person who is satisfied with his or her real (offline) life
is the definition in edict. Can be nicely condensed to "real-lifer."
>>
>>101323848
They could have just said "normie".
>>
>>101323427
>>101323480
It would be fine to translate it as "normie" because you should be able to infer its meaning through context, and it's not a real word so the other people's reactions would still make sense.

Riajuu isn't a loaded word like normalfag despite both being slang with the same meaning when written on the internet.
>>
>>101324039
>native speakers
The same kind who mix up "your" and "you're," and type shit like "could of," "would of," and "should of?"
>>
>>101324085
Stay mad, mudrace.
>>
>>101324045
It's the 2ch connotation that you won't find in a dictionary or a translation aggregator.
>>
>>101324085
You're correct that most English speakers are fucking retards who just learned from speaking and have never read a book in their lives, but some of us do actually know English. Like 2% at least.
>>
>>101323869
Most of their subs are actually pretty decent translations, so plenty of buyfags pick them up just because there's a difference to them between having a saved copy on the computer and having a physical copy. When they're on sale the prices aren't half bad either.

Even out of the normalfags who watch subs I'd wager, yet again, that a majority of them stream it.
>>
>>101324131
My bad, I realise you already know this.
>>
>>101324050
>>101324081
Normie would've probably worked best, yeah.
But riajuu is not really used outside the web, anyway.

>>101324131
Actually, it's there in anything that uses edict as the source of words. http://jisho.org/words?jap=%E3%83%AA%E3%82%A2%E5%85%85

You know that those threads end up having so many posts because there are people that both agree and disagree with such usage, right?

>>101324140
That's one of the best parts of /a/ - it still tries to enforce some standard of English grammar. Well, aside from "board culture"-ish things like "you're waifu a shit".

CR probably thought "fag" would offend someone.

Also depends how old their translator is, only teenagers and young adults use the term normalfag in high frequency. You average over 30 adult wouldn't even think it a part of socially acceptable language.
>>

Jesus fucking Christ.

It's not CR.

The whole point is that it's not socially accepted language.
>>
>>101325808
What average over 30 adult would watch Nourin to begin with though?
>>
>>101325808
FUNi, not CR.

The last time CR had subs this terrible was years ago.
>>
>>101326689
They were never this bad to begin with.
>>
Normalfag would offend many people. Normal is not a noun and would confuse them. I can understand why they did this even though I would prefer normal myself.
>>
>>101326864
Normie, then.
>>
>>101326892
Honestly, I don't think they'd understand the correct connotation of normie here without at least being familiar with 4chan. Even Normal seems kind of off.
>>
>>101327123
>I don't think they'd understand the correct connotation of normie
...But that's the point. "'Normie? What the hell is a 'normie'?"
>>
>>101327177
The audience is supposed to understand what that means even if the characters don't.
>>
>>101327271
Not really. The equivalent of someone who understands riajuu will understand normie.
>>
>>101327271
Then maybe the anime isn't targeted for them. Maybe they should stick to something easily palatable to all viewers like Precure or something. I'm sure they won't have subculture-specific terms like "riajuu" there.
>>
>>101327177
>What the hell is a 'normie'?"

Are you serious? Normie isn't even 4chan exclusive lingo.
>>
I watched CR's subs in French. I liked them more than these subs for Nourin. Their quality is completely unprofessional and borderline Hadena level.

In French, though, they translate "riajuu" to "gens" which is pretty much a generic word for people. I'm not a native speaker, so maybe it has other connotations.
>>
You think that's bad? Funi translated "chuunibyou" as "self conscious", too.
>>
"normie" is what Reddit users call people who don't know memes and rage faces.
>>
>>101327609
So, I'm guessing CR would've done this in English also, if Funimation hadn't jumped at it?
>>
>>101327609
Does Crunchyroll have French subs? Do they have actual translators working on it, or just English->French?
