For people living outside of America, do you feel like the local anime scene matters? Do you think non-English subtitles are important? Do you go to any local events?
>>
>>102265617
No.
No, since the subtitles are either in english with a few mistakes or in another language with half of it wrong.

Non-existent

>Do you think non-English subtitles are important?

Yeah, not every person learned English or is capable of reading it fluently.

>Do you go to any local events?

Non-existent

What kind of shithole do you live in?
>>
The only relevant parts of the "scene" are on the internet, making location irrelevant. Even a monkey can become fluent in English in a very short time, so if you need native subs I suggest you stop watching animus and go back to school. What the fuck is an event? Watching chinese cartoons is not a lifestyle, what is there to circlejerk over? Your subculture can go fuck itself.

Rural part of Germany.
The next biggest event is in Düsseldorf which is roundabout 250km away from where I live.

>>102265784
This.

The French releases for example are a shame to our superior grammar and language subtlety. Also it's good to weep learning both idiomatics from english and japanese at the same time.
>>
>>102265867
>learned English
some can't read it, and you can't write it.

learned is an adjective, learnt is the past tense of learn.

Yes, I'm being a dick.

No, I'm not joking about learnt.

>>102266215
Stop being a dick on the internet anon.

>>102266215
Fucking irregular verbs, man.

>>102266108
At least you have local events where people dress up in medieval clothing shoot bows and drink beer.

You must live on the shitty part of New Zealand, I know quite a few people around here that watch it
>>
Here in italy its all about dubs and 80's series.
I can't accept how people is determined in not buying non-dubbed BDs. its like if we're still in the nineties when subs were a geek thing. its fucking pathetic, and its even more pathetic how italian anime experts that watch shit on crunchy want also italian dubs and subs in their physical copies. wonder why anime market is fucked here, gee
anyway, its not relevant, and cons are just a meetup for casuals and cosplayers, so fuck both
>>
>>102266162

>superior grammar and language subtlety

Which acutally makes it WORSE to translate into. English works so well because you usually only get bare-bones basic meaning from the subs, and inflections and other subtleties from the spoken dialogue. It's very easy once you get some animus under your belt, you don't need to learn Japanese to understand what the people on-screen are trying to convey.
>>
No it doesn't really matter. If there was a store that sold figs for the same price you could get them online, then sure I would be happy, other than that no.
>>
>>102266215
You can't even capitalise consistently; fuck off.
>>
>>102265617
Britfag here. The local anime scene does not matter, it's all the type of people who call themselves otaku. This is why I would not go to any events.
>>
>>102265617

Apart from the local university's shitty mainstream anime club the local 'scene' consists of me and two guys who watch HxH every Tuesday religiously and other things occasionally. There may be more people but no one admits to it.

We live in Scotland so no one cares about non-English subs. Local events are all video game related, though I went to a big thing down in London my friends once but we didn't really like the nasally weebs of the South.

i kind of lied, because i live in Auckland. yeah, theres a kind of scene, but i dont want to be apart of it.

Israeli here. The local scene exists mostly on the interne. We barely have local sub groups. The few that doesn't sub stuff like naruto or one piece are awfully inactive.
I go to local events sometimes, they can be alright. They're all short and rather small anyway.

>local anime scene

Strictly anime-related, poor. Used to be better.
See >>102266474
The audience is either
>mainstream (and largest) audience that just want dubs
>the "normal" people that see anime just as cartoons, like things to hand to your childrens
>the very small base of weaboos watching subs, lurking 4chan and ordering shit from Japan

The most infuriating thing is that back in 80/90s it used to be an awesome country for anime.

(Manga-wise, not too bad.)

>Do you think non-English subtitles are important?

Personally i've never bothered with non-english releases, but they do exist and quite few are glad to have those (at least for most popular stuff) because English is still a bit lacking for most people.

>Do you go to any local events?

Only to the biggest in the country - Lucca.
But that's much broader than "anime/manga", thus there is a lot of shit packed with it.

>tfw reading blogs about anime or anime subs in my native language
The only thing I'd say is important is properly conserving past dubs for nostalgia reasons but everyone is too dumb to do that.

Watching anime in my native language makes me feel uncomfortable, like I was a redneck or something.
>local events
Wat
I've been to cons in Dublin if that's what it means.
>local anime scene
I watched attack on titan with my friends on the new years.
That's pretty much it.

Who colorado here? I really want to actually meet someone who watches anime here

Learnt is only applicable in British English. Learned, in American English, is both an adjective and the past tense of learn.

>>102265617
Canadian here.
I like to talk about anime with my friends after hockey practice, we even got custom made Jerseys! I can watch anime in English subtitles but sometimes I prefer French, since its my first language. I don't know of any anime events here, except for the yugioh community who regularly talks about it at locals.

Do you drink coffee at Hortons from your own naruto cup too?
I sure would.

>>102267870
I don't really like Naruto anymore. Too childish.

Too bad anon.
I was just about to recommend you bleach too.
Good stuff.

They're weeaboos and must die. I go to Japanese class and a lot of fucking people when introducing themselves said that they liked anime.

Only if they're translated directly from Japanese

I tried once, it was awful. Never again.

>local anime scene
Nothing like that here, the last time I have seen official releases of (shit) shows was like 3 years ago. I have only Haruhi/Shana/Ergo Proxy/Eva 1.0/Samurai Champloo/Hellsing, and that's only because you could get the whole set of each for a pocket change (and if you applied exchange rate to $, probably a cost of some better pizza for you). There is still some manga coming out tho, but not too much either.
>subtitles
There are some but nothing I would bother to use. I can't stand those translations most of the time anyway, it's too direct for me. English is like a thoughts filter, even some stupid phrases sound ok that way.
>local events
The only one I know about is like 500km away and it's nothing more than a bunch of narutards and such, I don't think you could even get some figurines or other (good) merchandise there.

What local scene

after the manga bubble burst there is nothing
>>
There is no local anime scene.
What, subtitles on official releases? Fansubs for every language are out there.
Clearly not.
>>
>>102266162
Yarashii best fansub.
