>"moe" translated as "kawaii"

Is Crunchy getting worse and worse nowadays?
>>
>>121309342
"translated as" thats a bit of a stretch, more like just inserted the wrong romanized Japanese word.
>>
>>121309408
I don't think anyone would make a mistake like that.
>>
>>121309491
You misunderstand, i'm not saying they mistakenly put it there, but changing one word in the source language to another word in the source language is not translating.
>>
>>121309342
Wow that's retarded.
>>
>>121309609
Ah, I see. Yeah, I guess you can say that.

Is this Daiz's doing?

I can't read moon yet.
>>
>>121310374
No, Daiz gets upset if his subs even say 'lolicon' because it's too foreign a word for everyone who watches anime.
>>
>>121311004
What does that have to do with HS? Are you retarded?
>>
>>121309342

That's fuckin' hilarious.

Catering to the lowest common denominator of the demographic, goyim.

Actually, yes it is.

It's not a good translation, to be sure, but it is a translation.

Are you this stupid? Or is this just a terrible attempt at trolling?

They did the same thing in Steins;Gate. Translated chuuni as otaku.

Nice to see all these one-word experts opining on how things ought to be translated.
>>
>>121311431
I don't see anybody saying anything about how it ought to be translated, if at all.
However it seems to be mostly agreed on that the way it was translated was wrong.
>>
>>121311239
Meme subs and I want to finish watching the show this year.

I thought Funimation did Steins;Gate.
>>
>>121311478
You could at least watch the episodes fff has released and then continue with dogshit subs.
>>
>>121311476
>agreed on that the way it was translated was wrong.
i.e. what is being said is that it ought to not be translated that way, invalidating
>don't see anybody saying anything about how it ought to be translated
>>
>>121309342
It depends on the context, I guess. Although I do not doubt it's likely just a bad translation, way back when before moe was the big word, it was kawaii. Especially in the west, we used to use 'kawaii' in the place of moe before it was an established word I guess, we would bitch about the 'big wave of kawaii' anime and so on.

So they might have been trying to make him look like a super casual/out of date with the times? Probably not, if he said 'moe' and they put 'kawaii' then it's likely just s shit error but yeah.
>>
>>121311622
Wrong.

Doesn't moe and kawaii both mean "cute"?

Its no different when subbers change "papa" to "daddy".
>>
>>121313012
>Doesn't moe and kawaii both mean "cute"?
The short answer is yes, the long answer is no
>>
>>121313098
The short and long answer is 'no'.
>>
>>121309342
Did anyone else think this was Rinne no Lagrange from the thumbnail's color scheme?
>>
>>121313012
No. Moe has no direct translation. It's a feeling where something is cute and vulnerable, so you wish to protect it. Kawaii just means cute.
>>
>>121313142
>>121313098
The short answer is no and the long answer is noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
>>
>>121313363
You got it the wrong way around.
>>
>>121313363
I was hoping someone would say this.
>>
>>121313142
The short answer is that people erroneously use moe to mean cute because moe characters are often cute, and as such moe has almost taken on a slang meaning where it means simply cute and if you use moe to mean cute people will get what you're saying. The ling answer is that the proper definition of moe does not constrain itself to simply something that is cute, but instead extends to anything you feel a strong sense of attachment to. So the short answer is yes and the long answer is no

This thread is basically proof that no one actually watches the anime they are discussing, and everyone just comes into controversial threads to shitpost and yell things at each other without any kind of evidence or basis for doing so. Also that people have forgotten that 4chan is not a credible source of information regarding anything.

>The stories and information posted here are artistic works of fiction and falsehood.
Only a fool would take anything posted here as fact.
>>
>>121313728
This is not a thread about the anime though. It's a fansubbing thread.

>>121313728

Fuck off CR.

>>
>>121314271
I think you need to develop a sense of humor. Not having one is a huge sign of immaturity. Maybe you should go back to watching anime after you've done some growing up.
>>
>>121314759
But nobody watches anime after they grow up.

Why does it matter to you who subbed it that way?

Crunchyroll, whatever. You're watching it through HS release.

>>121314977
Because some random shit doing meme subs is nothing new? Because the topic of the thread is "Is Crunchy getting worse and worse nowadays?" and the bitching that ensues from people who have not even watched the show but want to fit in?
>>
>>121315292
Are you implying it's impossible that it at first was like OP's when it was ripped, and then afterwards CR changed it but no v2 was made?
>>
>>121315404
>Because some random shit doing meme subs is nothing new?
Are you so new that you have never noticed people bitching about it?
>>
>>121315680
I have a copy of HS that was downloaded at January 22, the day it was simulcast. They never made the OP's mistake to begin with; the OP just wants to stir up shit with fake subs.
>>
>>121314893
The premise of the thread is moe being translated as kawaii being fucking stupid. It possibly being CR is just circumstantial.

Speaking of weird reverse 'translations', this bugged me for a very long time. The spoken line says they're like three sisters (sanshimai) but for some reason the subber subbed it as them looking 川 (kawanoji), which is an actual thing, but not even remotely close to what she said. It's absolutely impossible to mix up those sets of syllables. It's like some bizarre backwards localization.
>>
>>121317213
IIRC he didn't like the fact that his yuri OTP was referred to as sisters, and so he changed it to family (implying 2 mothers).
