    Both those things happened during the Enies Lobby arc. Funny how you only choose to complain about this now...

    EDIT: Also, now that I think about it, Mike McFarland directed most of Impel Down; from the begining of s7v5 all the way up through the episode Bon Clay sacrificed himself. So how does this "inconsistency" have anything to do with Joel?

    The "Ah-Kai-Nu" pronunciation really bugged me TBH. Glad to hear they supposedly fixed it.

    Another mispronunciation Funimation has made is "Enies." The way they say it rhymes with "pennies," but it's supposed to be pronounced "Eh-Nee-Ess."

    ^While I do agree that people can get a bit too caught up on the topic of pronunciation, the problem in the case of Akainu is the Ah-Kai-Nu pronunciation ignores the origin of the name. The three admirals’ epithets are derived from the Momotaro Legend, where three animals accompanied Momotaro on his journey; the monkey (zaru), the the pheasant (kiji) and the dog (inu). And all three admirals have a corresponding color scheme; yellow (ki), blue (ao), and red (aka). So, in the case of Sakazuki, he is the “Red-Dog”; the “Aka-Inu”. In fact, that should probably be how they spell his name; would have probably avoided confusion doing things that way (or, you know, actually translate them like they do the other epithets).

    During Enies Lobby, it was called the "Gates of Justice". During Impel Down and Marineford, it started switching between that and "Gate of Justice".

    No opinion on which is better, but I'd like them to remain consistent about it.

    ^I watched a couple Enies Lobby episodes earlier and I definately heard both “gates” and “gate” being thrown around

    I know the pronunciation of Japanese words don't have to be perfect in an English dub, it's just that they've gone way out of their way in the past to emulate Japanese pronunciations before, like "Masira." That was a shocker back in the day. Seeing them make inconsistencies now just sorta gives me the impression that their quality control isn't what it used to be. At least "Akainu" is fixed, but if they could pronounce "Baratie" right then they should have been able to pronounce "Enies" the correct way.

    This is just me nit-picking, though.

    The argument could be made that there are 3 Gates, one in front of each of the main buildings (Enies Lobby, Impel Down, Marineford) and together they make the "Gates" Of Justice, but any one of them individual is just a "Gate" of Justice.

    Where are they teasing it?

    I have a strong feeling it might be Film Gold.

    I don't know the source of it, but it's a point of discussion on Kanzenshuu forums as people feel it may be Dragonball Super.

    The D.Grey-Man news is pretty big in my opinion. Since the first half of the anime was release was like 6 years ago. And they finally releasing the 2nd half of the original anime. I don't follow the series, but I have friends that are fans of it and so I'm happy for them, since they had wait longer for their series dub to continue then our wait for One Piece Season 4.

    For those who are wondering what the One Piece x Dragon Ball Super is all about? Allow me to post a link to a video that would explain everything in 3 seconds....



    Sadly this is the closest we will ever get a movie villain in a known game that's not One Piece.
