  1. Is it common knowledge that Funimation tampers with dialogue of anime to suit their own bias?

    https://boundingintocomics.com/2019/10/19/funimation-dub-of-yu-no-a-girl-who-chants-love-at-the-bound-of-this-world-changes-dialogue-to-reference-misogyny/

    Because that's not cool. In fact, that really pisses me off.

    Also sounds like a growing number of English voice actors are a**holes so I might just stick with subs from now on. -_-

      Their change makes a lot more sense to me, given how sexist the comment is. I'm not sure why you're taking this personally.

      @Pawn Did you see the other examples listed in the article? You give them an inch and they take a mile.

      I'm sick of all this "misogynist" bs, especially when toxic feminists drive a man to take his own life. That's why I'm taking this personally.

      Several other words could've been used, but it just so happened to be that one.

      I sincerely hope hearing the word misogyny in an anime episode isn't going to drive someone to kill themselves.

      Somebody's taking the whole "Be The Opposite of 4Kids" thing too seriously.

      >toxic feminists drove a man to suicide

      oh?

      @Majora The word makes sense in context, though, and the general tone of the line is the same. Depending on the delivery, the original retort might even come across as a little weak honestly. Sexist comments like that should be called out for what they are.

      I don't think looking into the other examples is going to change my mind on something so small. And I don't know what suicide you're referencing, but the alteration of a single line like this is not comparable to harassment.

      I can't believe the toxic bias court system drove Vic to suicide.

      Speaking of which, bounding into comics as a site was leaning suuuuuper heavy on the "Vic is innocent" conspiracy theories and general reactionary propaganda. I wouldn't take anything they say without a lot of skepticism.

      Also if you think "woke culture is so evil it's so hard to not get called a racist or sexist anymore wah" then you're a complete tool, it's actually really easy

      Why is it the injection of this word that pisses you off, and not the fact that people are getting mad at a character for using the word misogyny, to describe an instance of misogyny directed at her, because they want to keep it as "Lol so tusunder!" for their own enjoyment? (Like c'mon babe, you know you want it...)

      I don't understand why you want to strive for justice and yet keep diving further and further into the right-wing bubble of, essentially, offense and whataboutism politics, when they're actively taking a stand against issues that are inherently centered around some form of injustice like misogyny, rape, racism or the like. All the people who attach themselves to fighting against these issues are a "problem", as they strive to prove, and thus all movements attached to the issues are a problem. Why? Because that one guy who hates this kind of thing being mentioned managed to find that one case where scumbags who attached themselves to this movement, targeted and ruined an innocent bystander's life! And that's bad because that's never happened due to the issues the other "side" has attached themselves to, right? (Y'know, misogyny, rape, racism, etc...)

      If you want to take issue with the behavior of those individuals, then maybe chastise them as the individuals they are and leave it at that? Do you really believe that all of these movements are inherently injust towards the instances and cases they fight against? Why is this instance of using this word ill-fitting? Why is taking a side in politics against a supposed injustice a bad thing?

      I mean for real here. If you were walking down the street, saw an instance of this dialog between a man and a woman, the man was acting just as crass towards her as this scene, and she ended up using the same word choice to describe him. Would you be mad at the attitude the man was having towards the woman? Or the woman for calling the man that, because of what you've associated it with? Who's the injust party here? Who actually stands to be hurt the most by this exchange of words? And better yet, which party could have avoided receiving such a retort from the other through a choice of words, rather than who they are as a person?
