Left is Evil_Genius, right is Dark Horse

Which translation is better and why?
>>
>>122539438
Don't you get hard from Dark Horse visual quality alone? And you'd be relying on professionals after all...
Obvious choice for me.
>>
Dark Horse.
>>
Redhawk is dogshit.Evil Genius is good, Dark Horse is better.
>>
>>122539438
The fantranslations of Berserk are just awful. Darkhorse has their issues, but at least their not illiterate.
>>
still can't beat "Don't lump me with you faggot-ass monsters"
>>
Top panel goes to Dark Horse if you care about muh unfitting swearwords
Bottom panel goes to scanlators because they got the oyaji part down and witch is better flavor than magical girl
>>
Dark Horse didn't fuck up the Dragonslayer story.
Dark Horse doesn't bother with Japanese honorifics in a medieval European setting, they just say Sir or Lord instead of Sama or San.
>>
>Like I would care about pissing contests between monsters

I like this much more.

>>122539908

For some reason, after seeing Guts' face closely I'm wondering what real world nationality would fit him the best.
>>
I played through an old ps2 Berserk game and for like a second Casca gets her sanity back and tells Guts she was having a horrible nightmare. I cried
>>
>comic book bolding

No thanks
>>
>>122539983

Tall Dark and Handsome is his nationality.
>>
>>122540050
And italicizing.
>>
>>122539438
Why are the scans on the left such low quality?
>>
>>122540089
Why do Americans do this shitty emphasizing? Like, every single speech bubble has at least one.
>>
>>122540116
Because most scanlations are taken from shitty scans made by Chinese pirates.
>>
>>122539438
Guts not cursing just isn't right. He is definitely the type to say whatever the fuck he wants.
>Don't lump me in with you faggot-ass monsters
That's fucking badass and that's one of the reasons I love him. Guts does and says whatever the fuck he wants and talking shit to giant fucking monsters without cursing just takes away the effect.
>>
>>122540123
Maybe it's normal in normal American comics and they inherited it from there? I'm not American nor I've ever read an American comic though.
>>
>>122539438

I couldn't even tell how to read the top panel in the Evil_genius ver. too many buts
>>
>>122540116
Actually they aren't. It's that the ones on the right are extremely high quality.
>>
>>122540226
Yeah, it's a thing with American comics. Most long-time comic readers don't notice it, but when you really pay attention, they don't make any logical sense for actual emphasis.
>>
>>122540228
This, the grammar is non-existent.
>>
>>122540197
>Don't lump me in with you faggot-ass monsters
>That's fucking badass and that's one of the reasons I love him.

I sincerely hope you're trolling. There's so much wrong with that line. It's a laughing stock for a reason.

>>122540276
Yeah It's a shitty thing with American comics. I've learned to tune it out, and I think it's a worthy tradeoff off for the Darkhorse versions.
>>
>>122540402
Calling someone a faggot is hilarious and Guts saying it to some fucking powerful dude makes it even better.
Fuck you faggot
>>
>>122539953
It fits the character.

Yeah, Dark Horse really is the best way to go.
Also, before anyone says it, Dark Horse DOES NOT censor their releases. I don't know where that idiotic rumor started, but I keep seeing it pop up when people talk about Dark Horse's Berserk releases.
Here's a page directly out of the Dark Horse book showing naked little Schierke's little loli nipples.
>>
>>122540551
I'm struggling to see those loli nipples.
>>
>>122539731
I actually like that one.

It makes no goddamn sense.

Faggot at them time would have just meant a bundle of sticks. (If it was in use at all). Obviously they don't need to use archaic words & meanings in every single case, but any good translation should avoid it when it's jarring and doesn't fit the tone.

Even if they had meant to call the monsters gay then why would he use British slang, in what is ostensibly central Europe?

Why is he calling the monster's gay? What is gay about the mons
ter?

well you didn't include the raw but it's not like I know japanese

dark horse isn't known for westernizing the shit out of something for the sake of muhsales so i would give them the benefit of the doubt

Pic is DH.

I prefer "I've got til dawn to kill all of you"
>>
>>122540737
Because edgy kids think that having the character swear for no reason makes them "badass" regardless of the setting or the character saying it
>>
>>122540819
I might be perceiving something... Maybe.
>>
>>122540276
I've noticed this. I bet it started out as actual correct emphasis but then the writers went bonkers with it and now every third word is bolded.
>>
>>122540737
If you're going to read that far into it then just give every character a central European accent
>>
>>122540882

>>122540938
I'm almost there, anon, I'm almost there.

For the shit we give Hawks, they gave us "Skull Knight" and "Band of the Hawk" in place of "Knight of Skeleton" and "Band of the Falcon".
>>
>>122540909
It's like if you were reading Berserk and then someone suddenly said "G'day Gut's 'ow bout we put some Shrimp on the barbie eh?"

Regional Slang has no place in adaptations that don't take place in said region.
>>
>>122540980
I'm a proponent of calling it Band of the Raptor, since apparently the word could've have been translated either way, until we got the "Falconia" arc.
>>
>>122540980
I don't get where Knight of Skeleton suddenly came from. As I recall in Dark Horse they've been referring to him as Skull Knight for forever

But whatever, that volume also had "Demonic Release" which is even more retarded
>>

>>122539438
The thing that is wrong with evil genius is that the writing sounds like it was translated and the dark horse one seems like it was written in english.

Post the raw so people can actually compare them.
>>
>>122539438
I think Dark Horse is better.

However, I have an irrational dislike of bolded letters. Do they annoy any of you?

Also, I'm surprised the official translation used "magical girl" over "witch".

This, it's seinen and in a graphic world like that you need graphical words to fully convey it. if they're spewing out blood and guts out then hearing the appropriate reactions is only natural.
>>
>>122539438
They're both alright. I don't mind Guts swearing. DH has way better quality, though.

Go back to shooping fedoras on Guts and get out.

>showing nipples is the same as allowing your translators to use words like faggot

You know about as much as Jon Snow.

Guts doesn't call anyone a faggot in the raw, you faggot.
That shit was added by retarded little scanlators wanting to be edgy.
>>
>>122542690
>translators to use words like faggot
Holy fuck, you're a retarded 14 year old

DH is closer to the raw
