    Crap, I laughed out loud when I read it!

    It's just... so weird... but funny! She sounds just like Cybertron Thunderblast!

    So...Japanese Airachnid is a pedophile? Well, guess it's not any worse than Japanese BW Air Razor being a male.

    That sounds disastrous. Did she call the super terribly ugly alien heads in her ship "handsome boys" too?

    The heads were edited out and she has a harem of "cute boys" instead. Who I presume got blown up by Jack when he destroyed her ship.

    Depends. Jack is 16, so he's of consenting age in some states.

    Whether from Japan to America, or America to Japan (throw Canada in there for BW/BM), it seems the dubbers' job is invariably to say "No, that won't work. Better make it STUPIDER!" :)
