Umm... I think when IPS translate TG, they leave out all the suffixes. Could you do a quick post to talk about that? I think it's important to know how everyone calls each other to see whether they're close or not.

First things first, TwistedHelScans are translating Tokyo Ghoul:re now too; they do use suffixes (gonna give it a try, though the fonts they use are no good for my dyslexia). Note that my japanese is not the best (it’s not even close), so if you find any mistakes or you want to add something please message me.

First, some useful information:

  • Ranks:
    • Special Class - Tokutou 
    • Associate Special Class - Juntokutou 
    • First Class - Jotou
    • Rank 1 - Ittou
    • Rank 2 - Nitou
    • Rank 3 - Santou
    • Squad Leader - Hanchou
  • Honorifics:
    • San - it is a polite and respectful way to address people of the same social station as oneself.
    • Sama - it expresses great respect (higher than san).
    • Sensei - used to address to teachers, doctors, politicians and that kind of thing.
    • Senpai - is used to address or refer to senior colleagues, upperclassmen or mentors.
    • Kun - used with male names (usually) to denote familiarity or endearment or when addressing someone younger.
    • Chan - pretty much the equivalent of kun for girls (then again, it’s not exclusive; it’s used a lot with little kids).
  • Pronouns:
    • Watashi - used by both women and men (although more women use it); it’s the more frequently used.
    • Atashi - used only by women (especially young ones); it is considered to be cute.
    • Boku - used only by men; projects a humble and gentle personality. It is used in close relationships and it’s a lot softer than ore.
    • Ore - once again, only men use it; this one is more masculine and projects a rough personality. It’s only used with people who are close to oneself.

Once again, if I missed anyone or I messed up, feel free to send me a message. Also, gonna keep the AskBox open until tomorrow, mainly because the amount of questions I received about this chapter is not enough for a decent post; if I don’t get more questions I might end up posting my observations and theories for no reason (seriously though, it feels kinda lonely).

Hello Michi, I'm sorry if I bother you but lately I have been a bit confused about Haise. At first I thought that him don't use honorifics because in the translations they don't appear, but after see some post I wonder if maybe you can tell me what honorifics he uses and with who. I'm sorry for ask, but I'm really interested in know that and I will be eternally grateful if you can help me ; ; Btw, my apologies for my english y_y
