I think it's because a few episodes were leaked early online, so now they only give the episodes to CR and the like after the tv airing, they used to have them in advance, and either their translators are slow or there's some kind of schedule conflict, so they've been slower than the fansubs recently. Same with Chuunibyou, I think.

It doesn't, but it still has wordplay in the form of alliteration at least.

Goku uniform on the other hand has absolutely nothing going for it. It's awful no matter how you look at it.

I actually extract the Underwater subs and replace Godrobe with Kamui just to spite their strange translations.
>>
Godrobe is probably the worst possible translation of the word. Kami are spirits, and clothes are not robes (why a robe of all things, they look nothing like a robe). Spiritdress would've been much better. But leaving it as Kamui is best.

Because jokes are only funny if you don't have to have them explained, no translation can capture the amount of puns and homophones this language has, and most important: only attention whoring faggots think the attention they get from lazy plebs for their shitty translations that miss all of the above is worth the effort it took to learn the language in the first place.
>>
>>101457637
This would be my reasoning for picking Kamui as well and as I am writing my thesis on TV subtitling right now, I happen to be an expert on this subject.

I think this counts as a proper noun and therefore shouldn't really be translated. Also, how would you define the proper translation name?
>EOTENA ONSLAUGHT
>>
>>101457991
That's another thing that pisses me off: changing the order of names.
>>
>>101457811
Kami is a more complicated word than just spirit. At times it's clearly indicative of the western notion of a minor god and at other times just means 'the idea of something worth of respect'. Spirit works as a intermediary between the two, but we have far more specific terms that fit much better in this specific case.

But counter to that, it's a made up term relying heavily on wordplay not available in the target language and I agree that it should be left as is.
>>
>>101457759
>Because jokes are only funny if you don't have to have them explained
I'd still rather have it explained than having it left out or worse changed.

If there's this much discussion and disagreement over what the words translate to, they should just fucking leave it as the original word.

What's the fucking point? That's one of the reasons why I don't like the DBZ english dub, they have to translate or change every attack. Some are fine like Spirit Bomb since it's a literal translation. But shit like Special Beam Cannon and Tri-Beam is stupid

Should senmeisen'i also definitely not be translated? If not, why? It's just as much of a made up term as kamui is.

Wrong, there are multiple kamuis, so it's a (made-up) common noun.

>>101458148
>But counter to that, it's a made up term relying heavily on wordplay not available in the target language and I agree that it should be left as is.

So you'd rather get no meaning out of the word whatsoever than get at least some meaning via a translation?

You might know what it's referring to but you'd be completely missing out on the etymology - whereas a Japanese viewer wouldn't because they could read the kanji. Translating it allows you to get an experience more similar to that of a Japanese viewer.

Even if you're reading a translation by a master in both Japanese and English, you're already missing more than you could ever know, regardless of translation notes.

It's almost a waste to watch or read anything character driven and full of jokes that rely on the language itself when the only thing that makes it through translation unscathed is the overall narrative, sight gags, and the bits of symbolism that don't require an in depth knowledge of japanese semiotics, literature, and culture.
>>
>>101458612
Except they're actually saying gokuseifuku, you dumb nigger.
>>
>>101458622
I am not saying ultima uniform is good, but it's certainly better than fucking goku uniform.
Goku uniform is truly the worst thing they could have "translated" it as.

They should have just written gokuseifuku in romaji if they didn't want to try to translate it to begin with.
Goku uniform really is the bottom of the bottom. It doesn't even try to get it right, yet it gets it plain wrong.
>>
>>101458686
If they are saying gokuseifuku, why did they sub it as goku uniform?
>>
How about having the immediate and direct interpretation be the one that is translated and the other relevant interpretation(s) be written down somewhere?
>>
>>101458678
No, just leave it as gokuseifuku and I can look up what it means.

This. I'd rather have a long ass TN explaining the pun than the translator making up something else. The worse is in H-mangas where it simply doesnt make sense. You have a shota calling everyone sis and theres not even any incest, it gets confusing.
For example calling out "Hana sis" 20 times during sex just doesn't sound as good as "Hana-nee", and Hana isn't even his sister.

I don't think anyone here would call these kinds of things to be good translations.

You don't translate "nee-san" or whatever into sis if it doesn't make sense. Then you failed translation 101, and translation 101 isn't direct word for word replacement.

It's actually very possible to translate senketsu and junketsu. And they actually did translate the meaning of the names when they spoke of them in their first episodes.
It's just that they so happen to be names.

If Senketsu and Junketsu were inanimate objects, it would have been perfectly possible to just translate it to English.

Absolutely round.

Except that it's obviously not.

>A proper noun is a noun that in its primary application refers to a unique entity, such as London, Jupiter, Sarah, or Microsoft, as distinguished from a common noun, which usually refers to a class of entities (city, planet, person, corporation), or non-unique instances of a certain class (a city, another planet, these persons, our corporation).

There are multiple 神衣, therefore 神衣 can't be a proper noun. It's a made-up common noun.

I see where you are coming from.
In context of show it's treated as a proper noun, since it was supposed to be a single instance. Just because a second entity popped out doesn't magically make the noun change classes with a snap of the finger.

Translation itself is a subject of its own (and one that I've studied quite a bit) and there's a good number of principles that are very much universal regardless of the source and/or target language.

Having a second track that untranslated one or two made-up common nouns (out of much more) would be just silly.

That's also one of the stupid things about this whole debacle - one moment people are fine with a made-up common noun being translated (like senmeisen'i), but the next it's a goddamn sacrilege that a made-up common noun was translated. There's no consistency to the complaints whatsoever.

Honestly, Goku Uniform actually works in the west. I mean, everyone should know who DBZ Son Goku is, and understand that he's perceived as being rather strong.

Therefore, hearing the term Goku Uniform would give most people the idea of a Uniform that makes the wearer strong as fuck, which it does.

It may not be the best translation, but it still works even if the first thing that comes to a person's mind is Son Goku from DBZ.

But Goku's uniform is bright blue/orange, heavily weighted, and literally designed to hold him back.

Goku's uniform is the antithesis of ultima uniforms.

You're right about Goku's Uniform itself, but I'd imagine that when people hear the term Goku Uniform, they're thinking about Son Goku himself, rather than the actual uniform he wears.

Hence, Goku Uniform would be associated with a Uniform that makes you powerful as hell. Much like hearing Super Uniform, Mega Uniform, Ultra Uniform, etc.

In this case, even if you're thinking about Son Goku, it works as a noun describing something that's rather strong or super, which is another thing that comes to people's minds when they think of Son Goku, Super Saiyan.

That's the thing that bothers me though. When I read "Goku Uniform", the image that came to mind was the blue/orange uniform that's designed to hold the wearer back.

I'm confident that most people have either forgotten or don't think about the fact that Goku's actual uniform is a training tool. Instead, they think of either Kamehameha, or Super Saiyan, both of which will almost always be associated with nouns like strong, super, mega, grand, etc. Nouns that can be applied to the Uniforms students wear at Honnouji academy.

I agree it's not the best translation, but it still works even if you think of DBZ.

Of course! You might know what a Samurai refers to but you'd be completely missing out on the etymology - whereas a Japanese viewer wouldn't because they could read the kanji. Translating it allows you to get an experience more similar to that of a Japanese viewer.

No, not really. People will complain about anything and everything.

I don't mind taking on constructive criticism if I agree that it makes the subs better, but this isn't a democracy. Ultimately, it's Futsuu's call as translator and my call as editor what we use, and we've decided to stick with the terminology you see. If you find that unacceptable, you're free to download an alternative.

If you don't like that, you could use Fiber Uniform or Fiber Suit or Power Uniform or Dynamo Uniform.

Because most people who watch Underwater subs don't have a problem with it, the loudest criticism comes from people who just watch CR/HS anyway, so why bother responding when the demographic they are serving doesn't mind? Pleasing people who don't download your subs doesn't make sense. I don't like a lot of Underwater's translation policies but they generally have better quality than CR/HS so I will continue to download and seed their releases for KLK.

I personally think Kamui sounds better than Godrobe, but Godrobe is as good a translation as you can get so I don't have a problem with it, and I don't understand what people find mortally offensive about it. Pretty much every criticism of the term seems forced and arbitrary by people determined to hate it.

I think you have to weigh how distracting and tempting TL notes are. Even decent TL notes are distracting and bad TL notes are enough to counteract any amount of good translating.

>>101471820
Hey man, fuck you if you aren't even going to try to understand me.

I'm pretty much of the same viewpoint as you on underwater.
What bothers me about "godrobe" is how people continue saying it's a perfect translation and even better than Kamui and keeping jap words is only for weeb faggots who don't understand translation at all.

Even after I explain in depth >>101471241 as to why it just doesn't sound good.

Some people think that the world will end if they use a translation note.

>>101471995
The only TL notes I considered justified are ones explaining information behind something that isn't widely known and would otherwise go unexplained, like if a character refers to something about a historical event and the other characters treat it like common knowledge with no extra information the TL would be justified in noting information behind the event to the viewer so they could better understand the scene.

IMO, if you have a tl note, you should have it separate from the work. It's easy in books and manga because of footnotes and panelling, but I think the only way to do in anime is to include it in your release as a txt or png.

The only "joke" there was that they were getting his name wrong. There's no deeper significance in them calling him "the day after tomorrow" in the original script and using TL notes for something like that would be ludicrous overkill.

>I'm just a writefag who thinks about the phonetics of languages too much.

Yet you didn't know what self-flagellation means...? (Since you wrote 'Something like
"Self Flagellation" was an actually good translation because we have no idea what the fuck it is.')

Anyway, as for your complaint that the pronunciation for godrobe "just doesn't work", I'd like to point you to the words "garderobe" and "wardrobe", both of which are very similar to godrobe in pronunciation (especially the former). Do you have an issue with the pronunciation of these two English words as well?

Also, switching to Japanese pronunciation in the middle of an otherwise English sentence is always awkward as fuck, and no matter how smooth you claim kamui to roll of your tongue it's not going to be any different (unless you butcher the word with English pronunciation). Godrobe obviously fits in much more naturally due to its English nature.
>>
>>101472522
That's the best way, yeah.

>>101454699
What's your (or the pasta creator's) problem with 10-bit? it definitely looks much better with gradients. Especially in darker scenes.
>>
>>101454200
Godrobe is better but Ultima is shit. Better than Goku though.
>>
>>101472027
Your reasons seem highly opinionated and not at all objective. I find Godrobe rolls off the tongue nicely, it fits the schematic for an English compound word. The fact that it's not a portmanteau is a non-issue, since attempting to preserve linguistic structure between Japanese and English is at worst the fevered dream of a madman and at best an amateurish attempt at translation.

This may come as a shock to you, but English and Japanese have very different aesthetics for beauty. Japanese is a language with a highly restrictive phonetic set and many, many homophones. Add on to this that Japanese has far fewer monosyllables than English and you end up with a language that rapidly becomes phonetically repetitious the longer its statements and phrases become.

English by contrast has a wider phonetic base and a much more diverse vocabulary. Because of this, things like rhyme, assonance, consonance, and repetition are aesthetic traits that must be deliberately implemented, whereas in Japanese they are commonplace due to the limited phonetic base and a high frequency of reduplicative words and phrases.

Contrary to what you believe, there is no objective standard for linguistic beauty.
