I've been thinking about what the English dub would be like for a while now, but the only thing that's come to mind is should they ret-con Jean's name to John in the dub so that the pronunciation remains similar? Weird thing to nitpick at I know but it'd make a massive difference.

One of the main reasons I hate, Hate, HATE early dubs is that they changed the names of people and places. Why couldn't Misa Hayase have remained Misa Hayase? Is it that hard to say Misa Hayase? Lisa Hayes is close but... why???

Take away all their German names too, why not? Wall Mary, Maria is not very English... change the name to "Titans Attack!" while you're at it... blah...

I can't recall any recent dubs Funimation has done where they've changed character names. I know there was a lot of frustration regarding "Cat Planet Cuties" but that to me makes a lot more sense than "Lets Go Play!".

I'm talking about '70s and '80s dubs, even '90s. Robotech, Battle of the Planets, Force Five, Voltron, Grendizer which took really, really big liberties in the translations and other content. Even Sailor Moon. Pokemon they changed the names of many creatures.

Make Erin Aaron. Mikasa Michelle... LOL

Oh I totally got what you mean, but as you even stated yourself they took really big liberties in the translations and other content. The way I see it Robotech, Voltron, Sailor Moon and Pokemon weren't meant to be localized versions of the original source material. They were some whacked attempt to turn "mature themed" anime into Saturday morning cartoons for the kids in the U.S, which if you really think about the culture in the U.S. at the time, that was the only way you'd get those to air on tv.

Let's just hope NIS America doesn't take any translation liberties and change Yuru Yuri into "Lazy Lesbians".

So far I really like the adaptation of this segment .Its pretty good. The background music was awesome too.

THey did an excellent job with this part.

Still cracks me up when I see those abberant titans, they are just too creepy

And now I can proceed and read the manga

I was just explaining to him the events that happened during the episode. And I did tag my reply in spoilers without actually giving away who the Titans are.

Yeah, the one thing I didnt understand from this episode is what Armin was attempting to find out by screaming frantically.

Reiner is already suspicious as hell since he got off without any wounds whatsoever. And that titan sure looks like Annie. But who the hell knows.

That titan also then changed directions after their little scuffle. Now how in the world could she have possibly known to do so? She had to have figured out DURING the scuffle....but what in the world could have given it away?

Its gotta be something with Reiner, since he is the most suspicious giving his body is in perfect condition, he had to have done something.

God dammit, episode 18 hurry up

Well think about the terms he used. "My best friend", "the guy who is eager to die" (what Eren's classmates refer to him as) these words are meaningless to someone who doesn't know Armin and Eren as people. However, since she clearly understood them, Armin established she wasn't a stranger. Beautifully done, IMO, by the Armin The Brain!
