character says "sank-yu" in engrish
subtitles translate it as "merci"
why is this allowed?

Inmate

it's basically the same thing
if you were in north america, they would have changed it to "gracias"

@kizzmybutt
Essentially I based that as the translators assuming the viewer is too retarded to hear "sank-yu" as anything, because their feeble minds can't handle it. So they put Merci or grazie or what have you, because it makes the viewer understand "oh, they weren't speaking nip".

It's still retarded though

Funny but it almost sounds like you understand Japanese well enough to criticize the translator's artistic choice. Why are you using subtitles at all, pray tell?

Understanding basic phrases =! A well-versed understanding of conversation. Besides, phrases that are repeated over and over are easier to understand, because they're separate from grammar rules and syntax.

Hint: If there's anything else on the menu, that translator's shit will be deservedly identified as such.

What's wrong with that? You're reading the subs in English, if they just sub it as "thank you" it wouldn't be apparent that they were using a loan word (from the subs alone).

Why do sub groups translate fuck buddy as sex-friend?

Why do they localize Japanese food to western food items?

Why do they put honorifics in the subs?

And then we kicked their asses in the Mexican-American War and kicked them out. They should just be thankful we didn't annex the entirety of Mexico as we easily could have.

And so automatically anyone that sets foot in America should use Spanish as the foreign language.

He was saying the descendants of the Spanish had some sort of right to the land because the Spanish were there first, I was saying that the descendants who inherited their alleged birthright (the Mexicans) got removed by a righteous ass-kicking and lost all right to claim the land as their own because they couldn't git gud enough to defend it.
