daru hashida

They’re the OTP in the fanfiction I call ‘My Life’

– Itaru “Daru” Hashida (about Kurisu and Okabe), Steins;Gate

In the sub, the line is something like “This girl is such a tsundere,” and that’s funny, but what makes this funny goes beyond the pop-culture.  Yes, dubs will often eliminate the Japanese pop-culture references in favor of American pop-culture references, and there’s nothing wrong with that as long as the intent is the same. This one is just so funny to me because the change of the pop-culture also ushers in some foreshadowing, which makes the point go to Funimation on this one.
