hnggh imagine if they anglicise their names in the dub… his highness prince william… ghost king chad cheng (racially ambiguous)… my hair is going white
I mean it very much does have the air of someone putting a press release through google translate and calling it a day. My opinion of funimation, especially when it comes to PR stuff, is fairly low. (For example I went to an entire anime con for events organized by them and they MASSIVELY underestimated the interest in YOI at the time and it was a SHITSHOW.) They’re basically almost local to me so I’ve been to a lot of cons with a heavy presence of their brand and I’m kinda tired.jpg.
(Texas, where our biggest cons are anime cons!)
But I’m still glad for TGCF getting picked up and certainly hope it’s good for donghua in general even as I brace for a huge influx of new Western folks into the fandom with all the issues that typically entails. And semi-dread the localization. As I said, I will probably actually give funimation money for this (and there’s a couple other shows they have I’ve been wanting to check out so…) AND they did give us a very nice Blu-ray box set for YOI so there’s that.
Oh wow, I just had a flashback to the dub accents on Kuroshitsuji…shudder. By all rights funimation should be banned from ever letting an actor do an accent again.
#avytober2020 Day 29 : Hualian
I actually thought I would have been more advanced in the novel at that point, except I didn’t. So, I relied on the best next thing : Hualian as cute animals
I have decided to pretend the tgcf eng dub does not exist until I inevitably hate watch it
do I look like I care that hua cheng has no personality or depth beyond being a bad bitch and loving xie lian? you could say the same thing abt me ❤️
ONE MORE DAY LEFT!!!!!! The premiere was held at Shanghai film art centre yesterday. I heard someone who went said that the first EP is really good!
a small portion of me is happy that funi is picking up tgcf but a very large majority of me is horrified like no thanks, i don’t want it
It occurs to me that I haven’t bothered THIS fandom with my weird synaesthesia yet, so here’s the colour of some names:
Xie Lian - light grey + blue
Hua Cheng - grey + gold (Interestingly out of all the names he uses, Wu Ming is the only reddish one. San Lang is white + blue.)
Feng Xin - black + grey
Mu Qing - dark brown + almost-white-beige
Ling Wen - blue + dark red
Shi Qingxuan - white - white-beige-grey
He Xuan - all grey with hints of green
Pei Ming - light + dark brown
What if people start calling Xie Lian only Xie lol
It’s Taizi Dianxia for you
GET YOU A MAN WHO LIGHTS THE WAY HOME BY BLINDING THE HEAVENS THEMSELVES

ITS GOTTEN WORSE
TGCF Tsum Tsum style Hualian plushies!!!
I was right, Hua Cheng’s balls are firmly to the wall on this one
