Comment on The Ambition of Nobuna Oda BD Covered in Nipples by Anonymous:

While it doesn’t mention it as a rule, it is widely thought of as a rule by scholars specializing in Japanese. It is one of the main reasons why if you look at a history book and see references to the great Samurai of Japan, their names will usually be in the Japanese order, while post Meiji restoration Japanese will most of the time have their name in the western order.
Personally I have always thought it was a bit rude to switch the order or westernize the names of Japanese people, but I also have a bit of a different view in comparison to other people seeing as I had teachers asking if I wouldn’t be so kind as to change my name to fit the Icelandic language better.
Apparently it was hard for them to accept that some people are proud of their family names and don’t want to be called “whatever-son”

    3 movies for a single LN is overkill

    Successful troll is successful. Everyone got insulted because they lack the ability to think for themselves properly. Most people who are gamers will be insulted, because they think people think of them as something bad. Problem is, Gamers put a bad name on themselves for their online behaviour. If you are an ass as a gamer, why do wonder and feel insulted when people say gamers are creepy ? Why are you insulted as a gamer, when you insult people online ? Stop. Think. Speak/Act.

    “This ensures that North American audiences can enjoy a high-quality viewing experience regardless of their familiarity with Japanese culture.” This is what Funimation thinks of their dubs. I’m laughing, so fucking hard. High quality? Funimation? Lmfao

    In the original she just gives him shit for the way he talks to her because she’s an upper classman. Pretty sure that would translate just fine in the dub and the gg shit wasn’t needed at all.
