Upon watching the original Japanese version of Sailor Moon, I was shocked to discover just how nice all of the Senshi were to each other. I was also greatly disturbed becasue this meant that the writers of the English dub weren’t happy with this, and thus added in most of their bickering and insulting of each other. I have never been more disappointed.

Yup. The English language writers couldn’t have girl friends without snark and cattiness. That says something sad about our culture.

Like, in one ep of the English dub they rewrote “Rei finds the moon stick that Usagi left behind” to “Raye steals it because she thinks she would be a better leader than Serena”.In an earlier episode, they rewrote “Ami and Rei are nowhere near an attack” to “Amy and Raye go on strike and refuse to help innocent people because they don’t think Sailor Moon is a very good leader”. Like, this isn’t just garden-variety bickering, this is intense levels of pettiness to the point they were willing to put innocent lives in danger like WTF IS WRONG WITH THOSE WRITERS

Oh holy shit. I’ve only ever watched the English version- I thought that it was just written that way.

While Sailor Moon is probably the most extreme example, changes like this are the big reason many anime fans prefer subs (even fansubs) over dubs. They’re also the reason we’re so happy about Viz Media acquiring the rights and releasing a new, accurate dubbing which is true to the original Sailor Moon anime, and why we have so little patience for the handful of people who are whining and screaming about the new dub.
I mean, it’s one thing to like the modified dubs better, and another entirely to go off screaming that Viz should be boycotted and that Naoko Takeuchi is ruining everything forever by releasing a correctly dubbed original instead of a refresh of the modified version. No, I’m not kidding — that’s literally what Nangbaby has been screaming about. Read her post and be amazed by the narcissism, entitlement, racism, and homophobia!

I saw a lot of good information and a lot of bad information funneled together. I know that the sheer size of our inbox was stressing them out, and … lets be honest we get a lot of shitty asks, and a lot of asks that are out of our depth, mix in some inexperience and word misuse a few times and you get that. I mean I do want them to mod still, it’s not like I haven’t fucked up before, but when we’re trying to display information we want all of it to be the most correct it can be… and it does take practice conveying your thoughts in a way thousands upon thousands of people can understand. Again they’re also in high school, so it’s a learning experience ….

Do you want to feel the way you feel when you’re asleep?  Now you can!

This is actually an item from “prankpack.com.”
The actual Napsack doesn’t exist; prankpack sells empty boxes that appear to be asinine, fictional products, so you can put your actual gift inside them as a joke.
They’re also responsible for the “crib dribbler” and “motorized roling pin,” also just empty boxes.
Empty boxes for like $50. These guys hit on the perfect scheme.
Of course it’s a whole lot funnier if you put something in them that is actually much worse.

shitrichcollegekidssay is problematic but tbh I don’t remember why

ableism I think

I can’t remember

it was ableism

I mean, I know neurodivergent people have a right to discuss this stuff

but I am 500% against the classification of some people as…
