Maybe when Gintama is over and I've rewatched all the episodes enough times that I'm desperate for new content
Probably the first one. I saw the Bishounen mode section making fun of reverse harem shows, and then they parodied everything else from Naruto to Attack on Titan in the space of about 2 minutes.
Well, maybe some time. I also watched 1 Sekkou Boys when it first aired and intend to keep going with it for now. It's just stuck in the backlog for now.
I think someone else probably watches either Konosuba and Assassination Classroom, but I could be wrong.
There's that word again, "circlejerk". Why are jerks so circular where you are? Is there a problem with the Earth's gravitational pull?
Sorry, my memes start leaking when I'm drunk.Anyway, just when I was done praising the official subs, I started watching Showa Rakugo and they have entire sentences that aren't even translated. Fucking whyyyyyyyy?!
...what ? What subs are you watching?
HorribleSubs. It's like shitty fansubs, lots of untranslated words, some with TL-notes and most without. And yeah, entire sentences are just romanized and in quotations. From what I gathered, it's the punchline that is left untranslated during the rakugo scenes.
I don't remember this either. Then again I only half-look-at the subs. Skimming through episode one I found "Ajaraka mokuren kyuraisu tegeretsuno pa" which is not normal Japanese at all. It's some kind of rel.igious chant, probably. That's how I interpreted it anyway. Later on there's a "namu myoho renge kyo" and this one I'm sure of - this is a very famous buddhist chant/prayer thing. It even has a wikipedia article : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Namu_My%C5%8Dh%C5%8D_Renge_Ky%C5%8D. Hell it was even used in an Xzibit song.
Yeah, I thought it might be something like that. But they should've at least put a TL-note saying what it is, if they can't translate it in any sensible way. Especially since they already use TL-notes in other parts.But, the first episode was pretty good. I can't imagine what the voice actors had to go through for this show. The burglar story genuinely cracked me up, some of the others went over my head, or maybe I was just busy getting pissed at aforementioned things. I'm interested to see where the story goes, and hopefully there's more of that than rakugo.
I generally don't appreciate much the style of the older guy, he's too composed. I understand that's the whole point of his character (being elegant and cool and relying on that for his presentation) but I still am not a fan. I much prefer Sukeroku (the guy whose discs the thief dude was learning from, you will see him in later episodes). But that the show managed to to actually make me take sides on the question of which Rakugo style is more funny and effective is already a credit I must definitely give to it .
