    Just got an email regarding my Japanese Collection. Apparently there has been a problem (that I'm not aware of) with subtitles on two discs that come with the collection. Anyone know which ones?

    You'd think there'd have to be some seriously glaring errors for them to go to this much trouble.

    Yeah, we're talking like a whole episode with another episode's subs. This isn't a one-word typo or anything.

    From the shout factory message board:

    I noticed some subtitles being off in Masterforce, I think around the second disc or so. i didn't see anything wrong with headmasters, and have yet to get to Victory. These errors were kinda minor, and only kinda annoying. you get the idea, it's just the timing is a little off, or a line is switched.
    The fact that they are addressing this issue and just replacing everyone's disc just shows off how awesome Shout factory is.

    Shout Factory, when I see you at the next Botcon I can attend, you're getting a high five for customer service. :thumb 

    Randy!

    EDIT: ^guess I was wrong. which series/discs were they?

    The problem areas are on a single discs ... 1 of Masterforce, and 1 of Victory.
    Details :

    This really should get a news credit.

    One piece of good news during the FE crazyness.

    I don't suppose there's a chance of undoing Hasbro's insistance of shoe-horning IDW and Aligned terminology into these discs ("Phase Six Officer" and "Deployers", to name a few)? I mean, I've got no qualms about them... in their respective universes. But this is a whole-sale changing of what was said, and that's not cool in my book (I could care less about whether or not they use Convoy or Optimus Prime, Autobots or Cybertrons etc, so long as a note is attached explaining what they did).

    They need to quit being dicks and release Masterforce and Victory as separate sets already.

    Fan subs are good enough for me. No IDW references in those.

    The fansubs have their own annoying things going on. Like when the subtitler has learned a Japanese word and decides to show off by using it within the English subtitles rather than doing the subtitler's job, which is to capture the feeling of what's being said in English without drawing attention to himself. Things like "That yatsu!" don't make grammatical sense in any language. It's like saying, "That that guy!" And stuff like, "That yarou!" is just lazy.

    Ayup. TV-Nihon was NOTORIOUS for this, and it turned me off of finishing their version of Headmasters ("Soundwave-aniki!" No, dammit. Just use "boss"; we get the message just fine)

    Awesome. I was waiting on purchasing this till this was fixed. But I still have hope that this will be on Amazon since I bought Headmasters already.

    I'll admit that this got annoying for certain random words where they could have just given us a close equivalent and left it at that. But I will say that it did help in defining and differentiating the different types of energy.

    I bought Headmasters already and don't want to drop another $80 or $90 on the entire set. So I echo the hopes of this coming to Amazon with the corrected subtitles.
