How did Mitsuha (as Taki) talk to his friends in “Your Name”‘s English Dub? [JPN vs ENG]

Note: there are very minor spoilers here, as it addresses something in the first half hour of the movie.

Your Name (named 君の名は Kimi no Na Wa in Japanese) is an anime movie and pretty big hit here in Japan, and doing well overseas too. It has gotten an official English dub that had been released outside of Japan sometime after the original version.

When I heard there was going to be a dub, I got curious about how they would handle translating some things. One of them was that a scene in the Japanese version that relied on pronouns in Japanese as well as dialect inflection.

So, when the dub came out, I hunted down the scene to see how they handled it. Let’s take a look!

Is the MooMoo Milk dialogue in the café the same? – Pokémon Sun/Moon [JPN vs ENG]

Today is a brief comparison post of a small bit of dialogue in Pokémon Sun/Moon that a reader was curious about.

There’s a bit of silly dialogue from the café (within the Pokémon centers). They wanted to know if the Japanese is the same, so I went to the spot in the Japanese version to check, and wrote the results below!

There are little to no spoilers below, simply the dialogue from the cafe.

FE Fates Localization: Conquest. Ch 12: Peri/Pieri Intro Dialogue (Minor)

FEIFWallpaper

This post is part of a series of Fire Emblem Fates localization comparison posts! I discuss anything from major to minor changes here as I play through the game. Today I do a quick request that was to look into how Peri/Pieri introduces herself in Chapter 12 of Conquest. This is a quick post as it is very minor.

Please note that this post is purely informative and may share some opinion, but this does not mean the change is necessarily good or bad. A change is just a change that is being looked into, and you can be the judge of whether you like it or not!

It is all just for fun and curiosity for me. : )

Today, I take a look at a death quote and epilogue change, this one in particular being Izana (recruitable as a bonus character in certain paths).

Consider this a follow up to my previous post about his changes…

Fire Emblem Fates Localization: From Garou/Managarmr to Wolfskin/Wolfssegner

This is another post in my ongoing Fire Emblem Fates localization comparison posts! I discuss anything from major to minor changes here as I play through the game.

Today, I take a look at the change in a class/race name. What was originally Garou and Managarmr  is now Wolfskin and Wolfssegner. The Fire Emblem wiki already includes trivia on this, but go a little farther and ask questions about the localization decisions themselves. So let’s take a look below!

Fire Emblem Fates Localization: Izana’s Character & Izumo’s Portrayal (Major Change)

FEIFWallpaper

This post is part of a series of Fire Emblem Fates localization comparison posts! I discuss anything from major to minor changes here as I play through the game.

Today, I take a look at the localization’s portrayal of the character Izana and his country of Izumo. He is on all three paths, but I only reference examples in Birthright as it is early in the game and I believe many will have passed it by now. So please do not worry about Conquest and Revelation spoilers.

So far, this change is the most significant one I came across, so let’s get to it!
