@shonen: You didn't read where it said rival I presume.
@shonen: No I do not mean any random translation, and AT said that the saibamen are inferior to raditz. Yet the Viz translation pitted them equally. That forum link also says that Viz is not 100% properly translated as you make it seem. What exactly is your reason of using that thread?
Well lookie here I seem to have said Viz was not perfectly translated myself. You are awfully hard-headed and if you think you're proving a point you're dead wrong, because what you are saying makes entirely no sense at all.
So let's all just go with the fan translations that are worse than viz and consider than cannon, the same fan translation that use curse words and other inaccurate terms to mske the manga sound interesting yeah I'm hard headed ?
Quoted from you own link: As has been said, Nappa doesn’t actually say that the Saibaimen are equal to Raditz, just that they are comparable in terms of power (hitteki, which can be translated as “equal”, but only in a general sense, not any strict mathematical sense). For comparison, Sharpner uses the same word when he says that Videl is almost as strong as Mister Satan (and here Viz translates it as “rivals”).
Stop making shit up. Viz never used equal. they said rivalsShow me this so called official 100% accurate translation of yours ?
