incidentally the closest one word translation for chuunibyou would be sophomoric. Still not great because it's also used to refer to a different and specific genre.

I'd read the early chapters of To Your Eternity before, and the first episode still gave my tear ducts a workout.

Except Susan, because she dares to like boys more than God. So she gets to live in a world where her family is dead.

Was it Golden Compass where a different author kinda wanted to write series that acted as a rebuttal to the bullshit in Lewis's work?

More or less. I think they both end up being narrative failures for much the same reasons in the end, though.

To Your Eternity looks good so far, and now that it's airing it's time to remind everyone the original manga is by the author of A Silent Voice and it's great.

stealing-and-dealing meds from her office to pay off student loans, which somehow got her mixed up with criminal baboon, who is connected to crooked cop, which ends with baboon pulling a gun on the depressed middle-aged taxi driver who hallucinates everyone around him as animal-people and is harboring a teenage runaway of unknown significance

I'm pretty sure everyone actually is animals, as the bar lady referred to his friend as a hopeless monkey

rewatched that scene in the first episode and that line never comes up. no one makes the animal comparisons besides odawaka himself, and the doctor and nurse treat his describing them as "gorilla" and "alpaca" with a mix of amusement and concern. this is also explicitly our world as opposed to some zootopia-esque analogue, and odakawa's flashbacks all have human silhouettes

we're only two eps in but my sense right now is that the animal-people aesthetic in this show is mainly to illustrate odakawa's alienation from everyone else

I'm generally against a dub adding in any "hip" lingo unless the nature of the story or comedy really depends on the slang of a particular time/place to work. It instantly dates things in a bad way like the pop-culture references in a Dreamworks animation, where it's often outdated before the filming is even finished.

With Dragon House Hunting it referenced Luigi's Mansion and Resident Evil visually so too late for that.

Letty basically gets a Poltergust 3000



And the Strobulb is something that shows up in the second and third games



And it sounds like he straight up says Strobulb so it's not something added by the translator.

Translating slang to slang is fine I guess, 99.99% of the time the japanese goes over my head anyway, but I do kinda miss the fansub days with TL notes (see: "nakama").

E: a whole screen of TL notes to explain why a joke is funny isn't the best application of this approach though.

Siren Visual, an official anime publisher in Australia, liked to do that with the subtitles on their releases :barf:.

honestly i'd be super down for the joke explaining TL notes as like, a possible second viewing experience or something. like getting the director's commentary track, only instead it's explaining all the japanese language nuances that don't translate well

The biggest indicator that everyone in Oddtaxi is human is that they name drop Starbucks and it's not some form of animal pun like Starbarks or something.
