Yes, an "underdog" is usually someone at a disadvantage in a competition, and this could be the organization in this case. A phrase like "under the dog," which is meant to sound similar, can carry a meaning like being under the pressure of surveillance (watchdog) in a dystopian society, or maybe even being forced to choose where your loyalty lies (dogs are known for loyalty).

Kickstarter is at best a way to throw money at people with ideas in the hope that they produce something of value and manage to get it to market.

The idea of it is great. Instead of risking time and money in the hope that something will turn a profit after it's created, they can check interest and get the eventual sales beforehand. It's only because a lot of people who do use crowdfunding are shit at management and schedule that they inevitably run out of money before finishing.

The phrase "under the dog" doesn't really have a meaning besides its literal interpretation. "underdog" is an actual term that has nothing to do with being under a dog.

Making up phrases like "under the dog" only brings to mind the literal. Which in the case sounds stupid.

That's so wrong though. Consider an expression like "under the weather," what does that mean? In this case, it's obvious the "dog" in the title is meant to refer to some kind of theme of conflict in the story.

>Where did I say "under the dog" was an actual common phrase?

While you never said that you were comparing it to an actual saying.

Yes, the saying "under the weather" is not literal, because it is a saying.

"Under the dog" is not a saying, it's just a phrase. If a phrase isn't a saying, it doesn't have any inherent meaning besides its literal interpretation, INHERENT being the key word.

Nobody who reads it cares that the author had something different in mind, because the first thing that will jump to mind is literally being under a dog. Which is a sorry thing for an anime's title to bring to mind.

You can put as much careful thought and deliberation into an obtuse, silly title, but it will still be just that.

>Do you not know what "creative license" is?
That you can do whatever you want? Sure, but don't take that to mean you're not going to be made fun of when your show's title sounds like a bestiality flick.
>>
>>121118695
>hurrdurr i abuse quote function argument refuted

Under the weather is a common phrase with a well understood meaning.

Under the dog does not mean anything, and can be interpreted in as many different ways as you feel like looking for.

Maybe it's about aliens from one of the stars in canis major?

The chinese consider dogs to be a symbol of friendship, so maybe it's about sticking up for your friends.

Maybe it's about loyalty, or hunting, or any number of other things related to dogs.

Any implications you draw from the title at this point are pure guesswork.
