Well.. What can I say.. other then that some of the worlds largest Manga Publisher's are really, really bad at translating the manga's they have liscened. Yen Press being one of them.
My favorite Manga has been liscened by Yen Press and I thought it was going to be great to finally have my own copy of Kuroshitsuji to have in my hands. Well I was wrong. A friend has been so kind to inform me and everyone on fanfiction the terrible wrongs that they have done to the manga. And what I have recently discovered them doing.
Bard is now called ' Baldo'.
Sebastian's famous quote has been changed from " I'm one hell of a butler" to " I'm a devil of a butler". A dead give away if you ask me.
Undertaker now says " Master Butler" and " Mi'lord" to Ciel and Sebastian.
Grell now says " Sebastian Darling" instead of " Sebas-chan" and they changed his name to Grelle.. and then tried to cover up their mistake by saying it was the official spelling of the name.. Well that is strange seeing as I never once saw Yana Tobose herself or the scanslators spell it as such.
So many wrongs.. I just can not count. They don't even sound like themselves anymore due to Yen Press's medaling. I mean.. this is just wrong.. even to a manga.
This was based on two volumes so far. My friend will update me upon the mistakes of the third. If you want to see the other mistakes visit here- www.fanfiction.net/topic/59281/27727622/1
I swear I really like shounen jump much better. Not only do they work hard to translate properly but they also allow us to leave up the manga on popular read manga online sites. Unlike TokyoPop and Yen Press who so wrongly takes them down just for money sakes.. 'blah'
I not only discovered their attempts to cover up their mistakes but I also noticed that they are looking towards here and other popular anime and manga gathing places to find links to online manga reading sites. I asked the Kuroshitsuji Club on MAL and Fanfiction to keep quiet with the links in attempt to hid. So I ask you guys the same.. help protect the manga's in anyway you can.
Who else noticed mistakes in your favorite manga's or manga's you like that have been liscenced by manga publishers such as Tokyopop and Yen Press.
