I remember when the janime site was still up and was the go to place for YGO translations. The excitement over GX having a manga that was completely different from the anime was awesome

So much nostalgia

I wouldn't call that bad, just silly. Especially if they translate it in one panel but not another.

Are the Baki scans just complete bullshit? Someone posted a page yesterday where whole bubbles were left in romaji.
>>
>>152164355
I don't blame whoever did this. Erasing it and leaving whitespace would look ugly as shit and redrawing/cloning that hair would be a bitch.
>>
>>152164595
They're not complete bullshit. Thankfully, the geniuses running the scans at the time were at least capable of conveying the general idea most of the time. I'm just picking out the specific instances where they clearly made shit up because they either didn't know what it said or didn't care.
>>
>>152164846
The typeset wasn't what I was criticizing; it was the translation.

That being said, they literally never redrew a single page in the manga. They just got their text and slapped it on top of the image.

>If you want to become strong, devour [her (sexually)].
More liberally, it becomes
>If you want strength, have sex.

The line written in that scanlation has nothing to do with the text.

Wasn't this one actually accurate? I think I remember seeing the Japanese version of this page at some point, and it looked pretty similar.

Any manga done by ESLfags that don't know moon. I've read scanlations side by side with the actual manga for the sake of comparison and large my ass off.

Any anime subbed by commie. They're the polar opposite of the first one, but are equally shit. They get bonus points because they actually think they're doing a great job.

It's the most recent one for me rather than the worst ever, but it fits still. A fine example for this anon's claims>>152175366. It's not only this chapter either, every single chapter tranlated by this fuck has the same sort of bullshit in it. This is why I agree with the derogatory usage of ESL even though I'm one too.

ESLfags and people who don't have English as their first language aren't the same, just like people who like yuri aren't all yurifags, and not everyone who likes Eva is an Evafag. As long as you don't post broken English machine translations and then use them to pretend to have read the source, and then try to start fanbase wars in LNshit threads while screaming "Xfags BTFO!" then you're probably not an ESLfag.
