If you're wondering why they don't translate it as "Thank you" it's because thank you is pretty formal in English, relatively speaking, while sankyuu is incredible casual, which thanks conveys. It's like asking why "manshon" doesn't get translated as mansion. It's because the word means condominium in Japanese.

That's not because they are BL-relevant terms, but because characters that appear as pairs often fall into those archetypes, and manzai is very popular in Japan. And yaoi is a term that's only used in the west these days.

Also, tsukkomis should always bottom. Always.

Nope. It's 幼女 (Youjyo), which literally means little girl. Baldy's justification was that because of the sexual subtext associated, translating it as little girl doesn't carry the right connotation, so loli was chosen. Because in the baldy's mind, the phrase 'little girl' has and can never be used with a sexual connotation.

Yes, because it's not important in English
It's only important in a cultural context, a context English lacks and thus never developed. The closest equivalent is "Mr/Mrs" which is really more like a heavily neutered version of it

If you don't understand this you don't even understand the basics of linguistic theory, there are many things that are more easy to express in one language than another because language exists not only as a tool of communication but as a medium of the culture

It is still appropriate to drop the honorifics and rework the sentence in english to make sense. Regardless you are still listening to the Japanese and can hear the honorifics if you have such a hard on for them.

adding -chan or -kun to english is bad, almost as bad as the fansubbers who liked to make cute colorful subtitles with no care for readability.

>almost as bad as the fansubbers who liked to make cute colorful subtitles with no care for readability
Are you trying to imply leaving honorifics makes the text unreadable?
>>
>>151521319
It does, Japanese honorifics have no meaning in English. If you know nothing of Japanese and add "kun" to a name it makes it hard to read and understand. It does the exact opposite of what a good translation should do
>>
>>151521384

This is art.
>>
>>151521473
If they know what they mean and they can hear the honorific they don't need it in the subtitle. If they don't know what they mean then having them written does not help the reader of the subtitle.

In no instance is an honorific in a subtitle helping the audience, do you see why they shouldn't be added. It is a sign of lazy translator. Since fansubs are dead and people like CR pay for translations they should be making an effort to do the job

Adding a Japanese honorific to an English sentence lowers the readability of the sentence because it fails at translation. It requires that the audience learn Japanese.

Of course, Japanese words, beyond loan words, have no place in an English translation. If that upsets you then learn Japanese. If the translator is using honorifics he is not translating

You don't need to translate everything if you want to preserve the feeling that the story is set in a foreign land and the word is a word that is commonly known and understood.

In fact this is done outside translations, and sometimes even fictional words are used if the setting is a fictional world.

Take for example pic related. Why do they say "Frau Blucher" instead of "Mrs. Blucher"?

And that's literally the same thing as using a Japanese honorific.

If the word is common enough then it would be considered as something like a loan word and kept.

>Why do they say "Frau Blucher" instead of "Mrs. Blucher"?
Because it is film made in English and they are trying to give the appearance the characters are speaking German so they throw some phrases around that people understand.(not sure on the exact film but that is usually where you see something like that, especially German)

That is different then trying to take a work written in one language and translate it into another
>>
>>151506135

>>
>>151522467

>So, let's just disregard whatever author did, we are the new authors? At this point we're writing a new story.

There is always something lost in translation. Adding words that the audience would not understand does not help. You can't assume your audience will understand the honorifics or anything else beyond the common loan words.

If you really need to get the info across and you can't translate it make a note in the margin and don't muck up the frame with words the audience will not understand

No, the translator should make every effort to construct a clear, readable, translation. If you wan't a complete understanding of the text you have to learn the language it was written.

Adding stuff to make it sound Japanese is just fluff, its nonsense. How does that fluff help anyone who does not already understand what is being spoken?

But if you're translating for crunchy or some other "professional" company where they are paying you to subtitle anime, you should make it comprehensible for everyone, not just turbo weebs, because you don't know who might use the service. I don't give a shit if you decide to use honorifics and leave random japanese words in your fansub because you are doing it FOR FREE, but you don't have an excuse if they're actually paying you for it.

I don't think that calling it onigiri would be a bad idea. Its a japanese food, calling it a rice ball would be like subbing Sushi as "raw fish".

>asspussy
When did people start using this so much? Better question yet, why? If they're doing anal, there's like a 50% chance that the translation will say ass-pussy.

I don't remember what show it was, but Underwater managed to not spoil a scene by subbing the entire line and when the scene called for it they cut it and removed the part the character didn't get to speak. It was timed so well, the line cut came just in time when you got to that part in the line.

May I ask where you obtained those?

If your audience is too braindead to pick up what "chan" or "kun" signifies that's their fault. Honorifics are too significant to exclude and often have no satisfactory English coubterpart.

Literally shilling for fakku, check panda threads sometimes and you'll find him shilling while claiming they have nothing to do with takedowns, at this point he should be banned for rule 11 with as much as he advertises but mods are faggots

I'd have to disagree. It was pretty good rapeshit. No stupid dialogue or cringe-inducing drama. She just gets fucked, and fucked, and fucked some more. Oral, vaginal, anal, gangbang. All the good stuff.

If you mean to fall asleep to, maybe. Literally nignog's first fetish and the overabundance of it helps no one. But hey if you're a nigger then you're a nigger. You can't undo that.

I'm watching FFF's Love Live release and there are so many instances where the character says like one word and they sub it with a short sentence that only tangentially represents what they said. They somehow feel more important if they're able to make up dialogue that fits, it seems.

Nip is a context dependant language. They might be pretentious or they might be absolutely justified.

>I've seen instances where the translator somehow has the brilliant idea of translating 'sankyuu' as 'muchas gracias', though. On an official translation.
You sound butthurt over a reasonnable translation choice.
