After learning japanese I completely understand and sympathize with their choices except when it's fucking retarded and completely messes with the spirit of the text and not just the technical aspect.

On the one hand, that makes it so we're reading the translator's humor rather than the original humor

On the other hand, if the original humor is a kanji-based pun based on some japanese cultural icon that we baka gaijins have never heard about, I have to admit we're not exactly missing out on anything if the TL does something else.

Making a joke funny should be the first priority when translating.
