I think the only reason dub names(and dub "localizations" in general) ever really bothered me was because of how massively inconsistent and arbitrary the decision behind the change seemed to be.
Have you seriously just now noticed the pretty much daily Digimon threads?
"Izzy" is the only one derived from the family name instead of the given name.
Kamiya is the only family name change.
Piyo to Biyo which means nothing.
Miyotismon when he doesn't even resemble that kind of bat.
Sora is a Japanese name, but they kept it anyway. They also kept all the Japanese last names for the characters and changed Taichi's last name from Yagami to Kamiya for some reason(seriously, why change the Japanese name to literally another Japanese name).
Similar things happen in Detective Conan. They changed the name to Case Closed and made Shinichi and Ran's first names into Jimmy and Rachel, but then basically kept everything else in Japanese.
There's also the classic rice balls into donuts and all that other stuff. I seriously don't fucking understand how these people decide something is "too Japanese" and what is fine the way it is.
>ONLY IN XROS WARS
Seriously, it Lilithmon in every. Other. dubbed. media.
I honestly believe changing Lilithmon's name to "Laylamon" was a shitty decision made by the dubbing company, and whoever made that decision needs to get hit in the knees with a wooden bat.
>changed Taichi's last name from Yagami to Kamiya for some reason(seriously, why change the Japanese name to literally another Japanese name)
Probably a translation error. They read Ya-gami (八神) as Kami-ya (神八).
Don't remind me. Seriously, fuck the Xros Wars dub (of course, this the same company that changed Taiki into MIKEY of all things, so why am I not surprised)?
You're thinking of Chackmon.
Bearmon's a completely different Digimon...
oh hey, lookit what I found
Alright, I giggled a little.
Digimon Pendulum Unlimited :

Digimon Cyber Sleuth Gameplay Stream:
Digimon Adventure Drama CD translation:
Digimon Crusader to be released to the west sometime this spring.
Ah, that explains things.
..... Apparently Daisuke is 100% compatible with Nefertimon.
>Venusmon = 100% compatible
>Lilithmon = 76% compatible
Apparently the Digilady of Lust has higher standards than Venusmon?
Also, go you for being TaikixBastemon.
I actually just found some r34 of them for the 1st time today...
damn it, you've got me debating whether I should just upload the image here with a spoiler tag, or go and dig up the url again
Seriously though, Bastemon & the rest of the Digiwomon never seem to get a lot of love from the fanart community...

Worst Digimon will be going into yet another tiebreaker round. Let the hate flow /a/.
Another Poll just for fun:
'scalies'? Is that a sub-type of furry I haven't heard of before?
Fuck it, I'll do both.
And yes, rule34.paheal's been a real disappointment for me lately...
Where it says "Best Digimon (By Series)" it should say "Best Villain (By Series.)"
Best Digimon (By Series):
Xros Wars: Shoutmon
Sorry about that gents.
What if they made a card battle show based entirely around playing the Digimon card game? No actual Digimon, no Digital World, just a bunch of characters playing a children's card game.
How would that work out?
Some of those questions are fucked up. Full body wax? Luckily I'm a sadist but that still threw me off in a Digimon thread.
Serious question< for the pain questions, did everyone choose based on who they like because like me, they're a sadist, or people they hate because they should suffer?
Why do I feel like I've seen this from a doujin somewhere before...?
Also, no clue. I checked the last 3 moonrunes in google translate for kicks and came out with something crazy like "stands below" (and that's after trying to adjust to something that made sense).
They flat out stated Kamiya was a mistranslation so no biggie on that. The rest were just mainly nicknames or shorthand names. Again I don't think its that big a deal. I think they were just changed so they wouldn't be too jap.
Shitty translation but it's roughly
>It's not over yet! Let's keep going!
The massive kanji means for "the rest is omitted", it's sort of like saying "and so on, and so on". They're basically showing how formulatic Masaru(?) is.
>The title of this new work is Digimon Adventure Tri. What meaning does this have?
>"Tri" is a reference to the number "3". But who knows, maybe in the script the "3" can be a key word? You could say that's what it means. Of course it's also a reference to the fact that it's the third entry. Without a doubt, people will have to pay attention to the many 3's that are in the script.
From producer, Shuhei Arai, in the December Otomedia interview.
>Agumon and Piyomon off-model with wonky angles
>Palmon and Gabumon with flabby necks for some reason?
>Hikari's disgusting broken hand
>Everyone else's hands are hidden because fuck drawing hands, hands are hard
it'll likely fail almost as hard SMC, what I hope is for it to be fun and enjoyable.
Surely they can do that much.
Rate this evolution line.
They're not going anywhere anytime soon.
>title in name field
No wonder I couldn't find a thread.
I would cheer my lungs out if the following people covered Butterfly 2015
Actually digimon threads really are filled with crossboarding faggots and even more will come when digimon aires. Still i cant wait for the threads. The shitstorms that will occur.
