Just a small note: it's sabão. You need to had that little line on top of the "a" or it changes how you pronounce it.
Actually the portuguese word is "Sabão" (it has a diferent sound thanks to the ~), but yeah that is the idea.
Yeah, I understand how it's actually spelled I just… don't know how to get my commputer to type the little thing over the A...
It should be "Sabãody". Pronounced "Shaboundy" correct?
But the Brook/e situation is just strange to me... This doesn't help...
It doesn't help that Brooke is a girl's name.
And Brooke is usually a female version of Brook, isn't it?
I always thought this was the case as well. So it just seems strange to me that people would spell his name the way that, to most people, evokes the feminine…
stop nagging even with 10.000 mistakes in the manga-translation, it would still rock cause i (and most other people) dont know sh*t about the japanese language
all hail scanlating people!
Here's an idea, why don't you start releasing you're own scanlations for us to criticize, I'll bet we'll find flaws with your translations. Be grateful that it's only a small deal. That's the way they want to do it and it's fine.
I hate when people White Knight fansub and scanaltion groups, because they always take everything personally and act like one little bit of criticism is "Nagging" and act like by saying "I think that one small thing Blinktopia did wasn't so good, even though the rest is really good" I'm REALLY saying "BLINKTOPIA SUCK AND SHOULD ALL DIE IN A FIRE!!"
Look at my original post.
Though one thing that kinda annoys me… I know Blinktopia are the only scanlation out now, and they usually do a pretty good job, but what's with the insistence on spelling Brook's name "Brooke"?
I think Blinktopia do a good job as a whole, I even went out of my way to say that.
But nobody is immune to criticism. I head a Scanlation/Fansub team. We do Hellsing. (Manga's over though, so don't scanlate anymore)
When I release new episodes, I ASK my forum for criticism, and then if they point out a big mistake, I do Version 2 releases. Because I LIKE criticism, it makes me better at my job.
tl;dr: I was just criticizing one small aspect of Blinktopia's work. I even said I like their work as a whole. Take off your White Knight helmet and see that being a scanlation group does not make one immune to criticism.
