Does japan not have their own words for CHANGE, ON, KURASH, etc?
>>
>>13738026

Or "chance". I've heard "chansu" in so many anime.
>>
Of course they do, but INGURISH IS KOORU
>>
>>13738026
Does English not have words for Henshin, Shounen, Manga, Tetsujin...?
>>
>>13738035
according to TVN, no
>>
>>13738026
Foriegn words sound exotic, but not all catchphrases use them.
>CHANGE
Henshin and henge mean 'change' and are used as catchphrases. Kikaida uses the English 'Change!' to sound different while having the same meaning.
>ON
As in 'switch on"? Closest moon catchphrase I can think of is Boyacky's button pushing noise (pochitto na)
>KURASH
Fun fact, almost every Japanese useage of the English word 'crash' is supposed to mean 'crush' but lol phonetics.
>>
Some of it comes from how difficult it is to write the kanji versus the katakana. You can write クラッシュ or you can write 衝撃

Mostly though it's English is cool.
>>
>>13738026

Change - 変身、変化、変形、変態(w)

Switch On - 点ける (they have a few verbs that mean "to turn something on" / "to activate" but afaik no word that just means "on" by itself, besides the English word)

Crash - 衝撃、衝突、激突
>>
>>13738028

Chance / Opportunity - 機会、時機、契機、機運、機縁、好機
>>
>>13739944
Haha I love 点, it looks like a little tank.

It was waverider CRUSH all this time?
>>
>>13738035
Shounen = Action/brawling
Manga is simply just Comics
>>
>>13738026
Henge

>>13738084
"Diamond Is Not Crash" suddenly makes a lot more sense.
>>
>>13743860
>Shounen = Action/brawling
No, shounen. You are wrong.
>>
>>13743873
Duwang Is Not Crash was translated through the same process as Crabstick Z
>>
>>13747078
Chinese sweatshop translations and a different translator for every volume? I have my doubts that a scanlation could work that way.
>>
>>13743860
Lol.
>>
>>13749842
It wasn't really a scanlation, it was some shitty 90s quick job done by some Chinese English students.
>>
>>13750231
Scans were made, text was replaced, how's it not a scanlation?
>>
>>13750241
>text was replaced
Some text was replaced
But yeah, then it's a scanlation, and it did work that way.
>>
>>13750241
doesn't the whole term "scanlation" imply that the work was scanned and translated? I'm not sure if you can count duwang as translation.
>>
>>13750543

It was badly translated from the Chinese translation but it was translated nontheless
