tv nihon is so bad why do you like them?

borrowedphrases:

You know, I find it truly magical that anytime anyone says anything even vaguely positive about TV-N, or anything remotely critical of O-T/Aesir, people flock out of the woodwork to tear down TV-N. It’s usually the TV-N supporters that are told to stop the “sub-wars” when they voice their opinions, or flat out told that they’re wrong for liking the sub group that they like.

Beyond my personal investment in the TV-N team (my wife mentioned how she works for them in her original post directing people to ALL the Kamen Rider sub groups, you will note) I just prefer them. They are the superior sub group for what I want from my fansubs.

I loathe localization, and I feel that it is a special kind of arrogance when a fansub group decides to heavily localize something. I like honorifics kept intact in my subtitles, because I do not think there is an accurate way to translate all the nuances of meaning for them to English. There are no equivalents, no, not even translating -san to “Mr/Ms/Mrs/Miss/etc”. I also like Niisan/Neesan/Aniki/Aneki kept in tact, because there is more culturally going on there than simply “sister/brother”. 

Gridon and Sengoku were things that never needed to be translated. Because they are proper names. Yes, even when we didn’t know that the driver was named after Sengoku Ryouma, it was the name of the driver, it should have been kept intact. It’s so cool to point out the mistakes TV-N has made in their subs, but the SECOND someone tries to do the same with Aesir people jump down their throats, and I’m sick of it. Aesir is not handling Micchi or Ryouma’s dialogue with the respect it deserves, and it’s changing the interpretation of those characters as a result. One good example is a point where Micchi has a line that is LITERALLY just “Kouta is Kouta” and they turned it into this comic book villain mustache twirling style line. No. That is in no-way necessary.  

If you like localization, GO FOR IT. If you like soft subs, or fast and dirty subs, GO FOR IT. That’s FINE. But it’s also fine to prefer TV-N. Like ffs, we are so fucking lucky as a fandom to have not one but TWO fansub groups doing our shit for us. We don’t have to rely on HK or google-translate subs. BE GRATEFUL WE HAVE CHOICES and stop SHITTING one someone for preferring a different sub group than you.

I can never stop laughing at this

Are you a fan of the hurricanegers?

I’m waiting for something better than HK subs for the show to watch it.  There’s a lot of Sentai I need to watch.

"Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was censored in Malaysia because the phrase ‘It’s Morphin time!’ was believed to inspire kids to take the drug with a similar name, Morphine. Everything containing the phrase ‘Morphin’ was either censored or replaced with different audio or just muted altogether.  (this includes the name of the series)"

(Mod Note: And here’s the new fact series, Power Facts! Since Power Rangers can technically be counted as a Tokusatsu I thought it would be a bit unfair to not talk about. I know a good hunk of the fandom doesn’t like Power Rangers but I also know that the’re just as many fans who like it.  I am going to be doing these once a week on Monday. but if they’re not very liked I will move them to either once every two weeks or if worst comes to worst once a month. I will also try to find facts that connect to Super Sentai in some way.)

IT’s more that fans don’t like Current Power Rangers.  The older stuff is completely fine to a great deal of us, some series surpassing their source material in quality.  But samurai and megaforce? That’s where things get ugly.I remember there’s one parody that has the morphine bit as a legit thing.  Don’t quite remember the exact title though…
