Social-Distancing translation in Kaguya-sama: Love is War? Aniplex revises error! Funimation takes heat!

Is the anime Kaguya-sama: Love is War a great anime? - Quora

In case you missed it, Funimation got a lot of trouble in the recent episode of Kaguya-sama: Love is War season 2 due to a translation the subtitles. Despite Kaguya-sama being an Aniplex title, Funimation has the exclusive rights to stream the second season of the anime. You can watch the first season of this anime anywhere, but season 2 can only be watched on Funimation.

Reported on May 11th from Nicchiban, Funimation got into trouble from fans when one of the recent episodes included an anti-coronavirus conversation with the characters. Many fans pointed fingers at Funimation for tampering the official translations. Here is what the original said:

https://media.nichegamer.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/6/2020/05/11051412/kaguya-sama-05-11-2020.jpg

Original: “何でそんな遠い所にいるんだ?” (“Why are you staying away from me?”)

https://media.nichegamer.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/6/2020/05/11064235/Kaguya-sama-Love-Is-War-05-11-2020.jpg

Original: “もちろんです!50センチ以内の接近も禁止します!” (“Of course! I will forbid being within less than 50 cm each other.”)

In recent spark of news, Aniplex wrote on Twitter acknowledging the translations and will revise it. This error was in episode 5.

What do you think about this news? Do you think the fault was solely on Funimation? Aniplex? or do you think this is just an overreaction from fans? Does this translation bother you?

ICYMI news: English VA Jamie Marchi under heat with anti-gun tweet

Why? (Rias Gremory x Male reader) by SharkyX7 on DeviantArt

Quarantine is tough. Not only business has to slow down, but schools are forced to close down and kids have to rely on digital learning to continue their education. We are in April and people are praying and demanding for places to be open. This week, I recently discovered some news involving English Voice actress Jamie Marchi and schools. This was reported by Bounding into Comics.

a reporter from Vox (liberal-leaning American news and opinion website) named Aaron Rupar shared a video clip of Dr. Oz talking about “re-opening” places in the United States. In the video, Dr. Oz stated that opening schools would cost 2-3% chance of the mortality rate and the tradeoff is something to think about.

Following Rupar’s tweet, we have a user who goes by @emrazz retweeting/sharing with her comments. Joining in the discussion, we have voice actress Jamie Marchi joining in the discussion with a anti-gun tweet.

Due to this tweet, many anime fans took offense to this tweet and did not like seeing Marchi making a comment about school shootings. Despite her not taking it literally, the fans heavily criticized her behavior and thought she went too far. In response, she stated that the reason why people did not like the way she tweeted is because she is a woman with freedom of speech.

This tweet news happened this week and so far it hasn’t escalated to anything further. What do you guys think about this news? Do you think Jamie went too far? Do you think the people on Twitter was quick to lash out on her?

Jamie Marchi is a voice actress that works in anime especially in Funimation. She voices Rias from High School DxD, Masane from Witchblade and Marcarita from Dragon Ball Super.
