I'm not saying that being wacky is bad. I love the wackyness of Kageyama's music. But it is wacky =P

I like the accurate translations and all, but they're not entirely followable at times.

"Only god knows."

Thats one thing about fansubs the fans know when not to be 100% accurate and be human. but I'm guessing from your post that these subs are accurate correct?

I've watched these a few times and never noticed until now how many Sonic Adventure sound effects this show used.

Well, considering that the existing fansubs weren't even grammatically correct [except for my releases :3], let alone having naturally-sounding speech, I'd say this is an improvement.

Okay, thanks for the explanation. As it stands, it's pretty damn funny to read. I wonder how badly they fuck up our cartoon theme songs?


A lot of Japanese shows have intros like this, long songs with lots of metaphorical meaning. It may sound wacky to us, but a direct translation doesn't do the theme justice. If you understand Japanese, it works as a song well. A direct translation, singing, would empty out an entire stadium and make Simon Cowell's head explode.

I would very much like to see Simon Cowell's head explode. But you're right. Every language has it's own quirks that just don't work in any other language.

Learn Japanese? Are you kidding? I have my hands full learning french! A non-Latin based alphabet would make MY head explode.

I can deal with minor grammer errors if it doesnt look like microsoft sam is doing the subs.

That, my friend, is a mystery. A mystery locked deep within Sonic Retro, never to be solved...

On topic, I don't watch Sonic X, therefore I don't have much to say, excluding the fact that I will never watch it.

EDIT: And...he's no longer banned? Strange.

This is actually really exciting. I never was able to watch the whole first season all the way through when it was on television, and I'd rather not buy ≈10 separate DVDs with 3-4 episodes each to watch the series.

Also, I prefer the Japanese intro over the English one, probably because I never knew what the lyrics meant. I'm not sure if now having subtitles changes that.

Long story short, someone hijacked my account. I'm back now, so don't worry. It's been taken care of.

Now we should get on topic!

Sorry to hear. that happend to me once during my beginning days here luckly tweaker understood and let me back in. Sad thing is, I know the jerk who did it and hes friends with my best friend. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF(etc).

Ontopic:
Im just still uncertain if the subs are accurate enough. sure it looks like a robot force feeding you back words in an inhuman way but does that mean there accurate?

"The details of your demise have been highly exaggerated." I had a feeling you wouldn't descend into such madness. Good to have ya back. It appears I've gone off topic yet again. I apologize.

Back on topic, I'm starting to warm up to the Japanese subs. It's amazing how much they neutered the American release. 4Kids, You have just taken your place as my mortal enemy.

Brilliant. I shall attend this meeting. I know a guy who makes T-shirts. Would anyone like an anti-4Kids shirt? I'm proposing a militia as well. Does anyone have access to automatic weapons?
