I don't mind changes that are necessary for coherence. Like for example a joke that wouldn't make any sense in english because it's based on Japanese wordplay. I absolutely hate it when the entire context of a scene is changed though Funimation style. As a none japanese speaker I am paying for a translation from these people to tell me what's going on as accurately as possible.

sure, not needing it to be made a seperate topic as thats just my opinion and I don't need a discussion about but sure. I don't quite agree here with either case but thats fine. Each to their own.
I meant the entire reply chain since @Shadow Cat first brought up the subject of accuracy in subs really, not just your post or any particular point in it. To each their own is fine I guess, but if you don't want a discussion about something why bring it up on a discussion forum? Discussing things is kinda the point of this place.

Edit: Excuse me for being a little belligerent lately. But it's good to talk, I think. I like discussing things with people, even if I disagree with them, which seems to be kind of a dying sentiment and that upsets me a bit.

its fine, should have left it at the first post and not leave any dangling threads basically. All good.

You ragging on my cultured people?

I'm being a bit lazy not going back to that post, but I think its grimiore of zero that also has a bit of an aged meme at least in the dub.

Some village chief the main characters are talking to mentions that he would be on adventures like them if he could, but there was an incident where he ended up taking an arrow through the knee.
Weird thing is from what I remember, half the men in the village, including the chief, were doing a lot of work on a building. Doesn't seem like the kind of thing someone with a devastating knee injury would be doing

I'm in agreement on that point but I'd actually enjoy discussing the accuracy of subs and dubs in a separate topic. If you go into these things with the understanding that its all opinion then you tend to come out with the realisation that while some people might disagree with you, their opinion can be interesting (even if they're wrong)

Yeah not too sure how a topic being moved to a more appropriate place got misinterpreted as not discussing it at all.

After a month's delay due to COVID, I got the finalised results for my Masters degree and I earned a 1st (Distinction) overall at around 75%. I didn't expect it in the beginning but when I saw the first results I was more motivated for the rest, and it's paid off. Very happy and I now have to wait until May 2021 for the graduation ceremony.

Yo congrats. That's a huge achievement and worth celebrating for sure.

I was watching the on disc extra interview on the Made in Abyss disc recently which has the JP voice actors feigning high levels of excitement at meeting the creator and animation studio. This got me thinking though I wonder if there are any voice actors out there who are legit fans of the stuff they star in.
