I wish you guys would stop switching the names around. It's Enma Ai... stop westernizing the names. Its very OCD-aggravating when you hear Enma Ai and you read Ai Enma (plus the name doesnt flow as well).

I wish this for all anime and tv shows you guys translate... Everyone knows (I suspect) that Asians write their last name first... we dont need to read their names written first name first to feel comfortable or whatever.

In other news, I never heard of Two Mirrors... or is this just the second season? The third season sucked I think,

Two Mirrors is the second series, Three Vessels is the third.


Regarding "Everyone knows (I suspect) that Asians write their last name first", first, it is incorrect that all asians do that. Are Thailand and Laos, for example, no longer asian nations?

Second, it presumes that everyone that comes to Crunchyroll is an old hand at anime, and is well versed on Japanese language structure, etc.. Having the names in western order is one of the things that clues newbies to subtitled anime in to the fact that "Enma" isn't her first name. Given that persons in Japan are normally addressed by their family name and an honorific, this wouldn't be obvious to someone new to subtitled anime.

Not all of us have an issue with it, which is why I'm weighing in with a counter vote here.


Given that you find it aggravating that you hear one thing and see another, would I win if I bet that you also think honorifics should always be included in the subtitles, even if the anime isn't set in Japan (i.e., a country in Europe)?

What a particularly odd addition...the second season, but only the second season. Not the first, not the third. And certainly not the first season first.

I can't even imagine how the licensing talks played out in that room.

The first series is in the hands of Funimation, which wouldn't be releasing it from its steely grip for Crunchyroll.

Sentai holds the license to the two remaining series, and most of us know they don't have a problem doing business with Crunchyroll (despite Aniplex being shown as the publisher for these library additions over the past few months). I expect the third can be added, depending on the performance of the second.
