You should probably read more than just a little bit before saying something like that. It started out when zoe quinn came under fire due to a fairly suspicious trail of events that suggested she had not only traded sex for her game winning an event, but also that the reviewer who gave her game a positive score was in a sexual relationship with her as well. The heated arguments that came from these events began to question ethics in games journalism giving birth to #gamergate an uncontrolled banner trying to identify as a group but failing horribly due to unclear goals, some stating that they wanted to know that they can trust the media they have to rely on whilst others used it to lash out at women without drawing to much attention to themselves. Eventually they got some more organization and were even able to have some representatives speak to the media directly though the event was actually meant to be a debate between gamergate and anti-gamergate, the anti didn't show and the event was taken to the streets after receiving bomb threats.

In other words gamergate is a groupish thing that wants to make games journalism more transparent and trustable.

If you're curious heres an article that puts the debate at the event into decent detail

As for the thing, I don't see the big deal. Gamer's hands aren't clean of the matter any more than the massive slander of game culture by the SJWs (And can you blame them?) What upsets me even more is the bastardization of the source material by trying to localize it. My god, is it freaking 4kids and there crappy subway sandwiches in the Pokemon dub is it?


Then don't watch any FUNi dubs, cause they change lines in every dub they do. They have to. They can't get the exact same lines to work because of mouth flaps and stuff. And it isn't just FUNi that has to do this. Every dub ever had lines changed because of the fundamental differences between English and Japanese.

If you are so worried about the "bastardization" of the source material, stick to subs.


I don't watch dubs. Am I not allowed to hate? Hatred is a gift, a right! I demand to hate and have negative opinions on stuff! Saying it is a case of "don't like it, don't watch it" feels like an excuse to shut a person up or invalidate their opinion.


No you can hate it just don't target FUNi specifically. Spread the hatred around.

I wasn't aware that Funi added references to where there were none. I also hated 4kids for this specific reason as well. Are you telling me other shows have been Americanized?! I mean I don't think Disney and Ghibli are ones to do this.

The funny thing in all of this is if anyone in Prison School was a Gamergate weirdo...it'd be Joe.

That's.....that's supposed to be a joke about Gamergates being a type of ant, and you know....Joe loves his ants to an unhealthy degree.

I'll leave now.

How the fuck
anyone could care about that is beyond me, but it just goes to show how disrespectful the dude is for shitting all over anime and anime fans to use it to launch his little crusade against those people.



Like really, Funi?


Gonna let your employees shit over the fans and the creators of anime over that nonsense?????

IT'S ALL ABOUT ETHICS IN ANIME DUBBING!!!


I don't really care other than: Funi's done this more and more and GG is an odd reference to use. Only ones who'd get it are those familar with video games and Anita Sarkeesian.

Did they seriously use a Fonz reference?????? No one's gonna get that one unless you're of a certain age!


Also, the last thing anime fandom seriously needs is for its own version of pissy manbabies going after chicks like me because we like anime. Keep that shit out.

Also I am still trying to figure out what Gamergate exactly is. One of the many things on the internet that I have no clue about lol.

I'm more alarmed that they tried to make a Happy Days reference to the Fonz. I mean, geez guys. None of your voice actors are even old enough to get that reference. Who exactly do you think is watching this show?

-.-


Yeah. That was quite bizarre.

It started like that, but all those claims about trading sex for her game winning an event and getting positive reviews came from an angry ex-boyfriend and weren't true at all.

Sounds like a bunch of needless drama. I usually just watch Totalbiscuit for game reviews, and the worst he does is rages, it's pretty funny actually.
