>I've seen the "it's unnatural for teens to call each other Mr./Miss all the time" as a criticism of localized/no-honorifics subs before. But really, if people don't like schoolkids being too formal, imo they should blame the Japanese scriptwriters for having the characters use the exact same suffixes that adults in a workplace might use. Localized subs are merely a reflection of that level of formality.

Which strip is the actual panel from? I don't think I've seen that one.
>>
>>134057300
Just use the japanese suffixes and be done with it.

I mean -sensei works in English, so why wouldn't the other suffixes.
>>
>>134058915
This. Everyone watching/reading your translation presumably knows their basic honorifics, anyway.

Some fag on ANN.

>for having the characters use the exact same suffixes that adults in a workplace might use
Which still don't equate to Mr/Miss in those cases, no one in the west calls their workmate Bob, Mr. Bob you retard. If you're gonna be a faggot and localize then don't use any except in cases where it's clear Mr/Miss would be expected in the west.

>>134059520
They probably would if Bob was older or in a higher position in the company.

Why do you do this to yourself?
>>
>>134059689
I was under the impression that it is actually strange to use that kind of formality when addressing someone of the same age and social standing.

>>134059671

Maybe the CEO or some shit, you don't call your direct manager Mr. usually these days.

do kids in japan use -kun and -san for each other (when theyre talking to someone who's not their friend)?
>>
sometimes you have delinquents in anime use -san for their leader. I don't know enough about Japan and obviosuly there's a big difference between anime and japan but you wouldnt have them call their leader 'mr' in anything else. -san shows respect but i can be used more loosely than 'mr' i assume. they both show respect though
>>
>>134060020
Calling someone in your class classmate-san is polite, but not strange. If you did that with every person in your class, regardless of your actual closeness to them, you would give off the impression that you're purposely distancing yourself from everyone else, though.

>>134061410
With young kids you would expect -kun, especially between boys or a girl talking to a boy, and girls would use -chan.
>>
>>134061681
Boys will use -chan too though, should have said that. Shortened version of first name+chan is pretty common.
>>
Ehh, blame English for not having enough honorifics. So often you see delinquents(and lesbians) call each other bigbro-name, bigsis-name. English doesn't have specific terms to differentiate siblings by age.

What kind of elite wanker school did you go to? Last names were for teachers at mine.
>>
>>134057300
But they really do say honorifics, why pretend they don't?
