General Discussion » Wiki Project PMs ~ Lets Conquer the Wiki Together!

@Delphic: The idea is to just gather the users working on a certain franchise together so they can work together instead of individually. I would say the core focus of a wiki project is to write episode/chapter summaries and add character pages, that's probably the top priority, but you can obviously go as deep as you want.

I forgot to mention Anime Vice's newest projects that came out later in 2013, Toriko and Seven Deadly Sins. I'll set up a PM for my comrades.

Hold the phone, I want all the PMs started by the AV account so I can keep track of them all easily. PM me the users to be included and I'll do it.

@Acura_Max: I loved it when I first heard it, but I don't think I can enjoy Gangnam Style any more. That's the problem when these things go viral, it's weird.

@Daniel_Newton: I pick a lot of my favorites up from the anime openings and such.

I think that's how most of us are introduced to it, I know I was. I remember finding the music videos for some of the opening themes from Bleach and went from there.

Very cute, great music, and fun videos. And you'd lose your mind if you found out how old she is!

You weren't kidding! I hope scientists discover the Asian secrets of slow aging soon, it's unfair! :P Scandal and STEREOPONY are good choices.

I've pretty much had this video on repeat since I found it the other day. Super catchy and ohmygod those dance moves!

Sure, I'm all for forum tournaments. One of these days I'll get back to the swimsuit tournament contest thing and post the final round.

It would be a bit strange that Natsu can smell Gray's father and think that it's Gray. If he can do that he should be able to connect Cana and Gildarts. I think it could be Gray from the future...

I thought the same thing. We've already had Evil Future Rogue already so it's plausible. It'll probably just be his father though.

...would that make Gray half-demon? He really won't be happy about that...

@sickVisionz: Ah, now I see the difference. To be fair, I think that was probably lost in translation. The way she acted in that scene made her seem like a total ditz and when she said ujimushi it seemed like she just said the first word beginning with U to pop into her head, rather than it being a subtle insult.

On a side note that guy is a fantastic animator, the scenes he worked on were great.

@Marshal Victory: Oh no I wasn't trying to argue, I was just curious what you found so different. Thanks for explaining :)

I duno they feel like two difrent characters now.

Really? Which character? Dandy? The comparison in the video seemed pretty spot-on to me, is there something specific I'm missing?

Yeah I just noticed the video, haha that was a waste of time, oh well. Judging from the video the dub script is great, they localize it without taking too many creative liberties. Pretty much settles it for me, I'll continue watching the dub, looks like they're doing it properly.

@sickVisionz: I watched the episode dubbed and I've been comparing the subbed version to it and it's pretty faithful from what I've seen. Here's the official sub and dub comparison for that scene:

Honey: "Sir, what is your name?"
Dandy: "Dandy. Space Dandy."
Honey: "So tell me, tell me, what do you do?"
Dandy: "Hm-hm, would you like to know?"
Honey: "Yes I would!"
Dandy: "It's a job that begins with a 'U.' Try to guess it."
Honey: Well, okay, let's see... Ujumushi! [maggot]
Dandy: No, that's not really a job...
— Sub
Honey: "So, what's your name?"
Dandy: "It's Dandy. But you can call me Space Dandy."
Honey: "So then, Mr. Space Dandy, what do you do?"
Dandy: "Huh-huh, you wanna know?"
Honey: "Do I ever?!"
Dandy: "It's a job that begins with 'A.' See if you can guess it."
Honey: "Starts with 'A'... that's a tricky one... asteroid belt!"
Dandy: That does start with an 'A' but no...
— Dub

I don't know much Japanese but the subtitles certainly seem to match up with what's being said, so I don't know who said the correct translation was "be an ass" but I'm pretty sure that's wrong.

FUNimation do a pretty good job these days so I wouldn't worry about it too much. I actually highly recommend checking the dub out, I don't like many dubs but so far this seems like a good one.

@Marshal Victory: When I was watching the term "Breastaurant" made me laugh way more than it should have. I'm not sure if I should be ashamed or not...

@DocHaus: I personally like theory #1 the most, but I doubt they'll go with that.

Just watched the first episode dubbed, good quality as you'd expect from FUNimation. Made me chuckle at times and at other times I was just bemused... kind of hope it's a little less slapdash next week but I'm definitely intrigued. It has a great look. I think I'll check out the subbed version to compare.

Also Space Hooters.

I was actually tricked into believing Charlotte was a guy because of her manly voice.

Yeah, that's probably what they were doing for. It's actually not a bad dub and I could probably get used to the accents, but I definitely prefer the original Japanese. Ichika no ecchi all the way!

@Dream: Added your review to the first post :)

I highly recommend the manga. I'm hooked which is saying something since I don't read much manga. There are definitely some less eventful chapters but the manga also has my favourite part of the story so far involving a doppelgänger of Urabe. I won't say anything more, you'll have to find out for yourself!

@takashichea said:

Sure, I try this show in the name of science. It's like French kissing to the extreme.

Let us know how it goes. I recommend you at least watch episodes 1 and 2 before you decide to drop it or keep going. I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised :)

@takashichea: Sorry, I meant to reply to you last week. Oh god, I just checked out the dub, the accents are so bad! Or at least they seem bad to me, I don't hear a lot of French or German people speaking English so I guess I could be wrong. Charlotte doesn't sound cute at all! "You're a pervert!" in a harsh French accent isn't even close to "Ichika no Ecchi" in Japanese.

Don't even get me started on Cecilia. It's probably because I'm English myself, but whenever I hear an American doing a fake English accent (and it's always posh/royal English, too) it annoys me. It seems so exaggerated and snobby.
