Localization Discourse
  • Nintendo: -Completely changes scenes and character personalities leaving very little if any of the original Japanese version. Cuts out content for no particularly good reason, Inserts memes when there is no reason for them-
  • Journalists: "This is a shining example of how localization of Japanese games should be done.'
  • Atlus: -Localizes Persona 5 in a much more literal fashion. Leaving nearly all of the original content in with its original context-
  • Journalists: "Persona 5's localization is terrible and everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves.'
  • Simon: *becomes a vampire*
  • Simon: nope nope nope nopenopenopenopenope lmao nope fuck this NOPE I'm cancelled it's over everyone pack up go home that's a no from me absolutely not bye bitches hasta la vista I'm exiting this dimension adios fuckers

3/21/2017: 

Overheard a girl quietly ask this about me on campus earlier today — I don’t think she meant it in an offensive way, but I was still surprised to hear it. Reclaiming a slur for yourself is not a quick or easy process — or even necessary — but for me, personally, it is very empowering; I think it’s worth it. Maybe next time (if its safe) I’ll be able to confidently say “Yes, she is a dyke!”

We know so little about Steve in this movie.

Were his parents alive? Did he had siblings? What was he doing before the war? Did he always wanted to be a soldier/spy? Had he romantically loved before Diana? How many children he wanted? Was his grandma alive when he died? Did he got some sort of funeral? Did his family cried him back home and got his flag, and his things back? Did Diana met them and cried him with them, told them what he did for the world, got to see his childhood bedroom lIKE LOIS DID IN BATMAN V SUPERMAN, THEN WAS SHOWN PICTURES OF HIM AS HE GROW OLDER UNTIL THERE WAS NO CHANGE AND NO MORE PICTURES BUT HIM, FOREVER YOUNG, AND ONLY A MEMORY AT 9:05?

luke resting his head on bodhi’s shoulder. the only light is a large moon overhead. luke’s talking quietly about tattooine, about slaving and moisture vaporators and the local gay hang out, tosche station. about miles and miles of nothing but sand and scavengers. he finishes and runs his fingers over bodhi’s palm.

“and jedha?” he says after a moment. “if you want to.”

and bodhi tells him. tells him of markets and laughter and a walkway of glass and the sour flavour of fruits handed out by passing monks, of vibrant life crammed into a city and sand control staff and old transport ships being sold as reshaped utensils.

“of course that was before,” he says.

before it was all gone. before the empire.

“at least you dont have to live with the sand anymore,” says luke, attempting to lighten the mood.

bodhi snorts. nods. “i dont like sand,” he agrees.

“its coarse.”

“rough.”

“irritating.”

“gets everywhere.”

luke kisses him.

Nobody finds it haunting that Jackie encouraged Hyde to have great chances in his professional life and wanted a stable, comfy life with him a loving husband, and didn’t want to be like her mother but ended with a playboy/shampoo boy, no job, no car, no healthy relationship, no stable family, and as shallow as her mother or even worse; while Hyde, who never thought great of himself, ended owning a record store, econimically stable life, rich new family that loves him, but is completely alone like he always predicted he would be? Because I think about it all the time.

Legolas x Short!Reader Headcanons

A/N: Just looking out for my fellow vertically challenged fans out there (; enjoy!

• This boy has definitely used you as an armrest before. Putting his arms on your shoulder or head has become a common practice between the both of you; and while he knows you could (and probably would) break his arm in a split second, you don’t really mind having his touch on you 24/7.

• Legolas loves carrying you. Because you often grumble about the injustice of his long legs and how you practically have to run to keep up with his long strides, he often lifts you up on his back, slings you on his shoulder, or carries you bridal style to “help you keep up with him”. Not that he minds, of course. The sight of your beet red face and flustered demeanor makes it a worthwhile investment every single time.

• Since Leggy is a literal tree, kissing him can be quite a difficult task. He enjoys watching you try to elongate your body as much as possible to get to him, often standing on top of your toes in an effort to reach his face. To him, the image of your nose scrunched up with frustration in an attempt to make contact with his lips is one, if not the cutest things he’s ever had the pleasure of witnessing. Eventually, you come to the end of your patience and grab him by the collar, dragging him down to your level. Although he misses the entertainment, the feeling of your lips perfectly molded against his is more than enough to compensate for it.

• Your small frame makes cuddling easy. Rather than squirming around trying to find a comfortable position for the both of you, your petite figure allows him to wrap his body around yours with ease. He’ll nuzzle his face into your chest, wrapping his lean arms around your waist and pulling you close, inhaling your scent deeply. No matter how many times he does it, you always flush with slight embarrassment, ears turning a rosy pink at his intimate action. Nonetheless, you’ll swing your hips around his midsection and stroke his hair lovingly, undoing his braids and letting his hair fall free in waves. He’ll hum in satisfaction at the feeling of your fingers gently weaving through his tresses, voice thrumming against your chest and sending waves of love coursing throughout your body at the sound of his voice.

• Legolas is Extra™ when it comes to you. If clothes are ever too long to fit your body, he’ll arrange your closet to be tailored to your size. No matter how many times you claim the length of the sleeves on your nightgown is just fine, thank you very much, he’ll send clothing down to get altered perfectly to your body. Even though Legolas makes a show about the injustice of having no clothes that fit your body type, you know he just wants an excuse to see you in his clothing. His clothing is comfortable and you don’t mind being in it, however, it’s difficult to explain to his father why you show up to the breakfast table wearing his son’s shirt, wrinkly and oversized with sleeves draping over your hands and fabric spilling over your shoulders without receiving raised eyebrows and airy giggles from soldiers and servants alike.

• One of the most rewarding things about being short is that you’re the perfect height for forehead kisses. Legolas is free to shower you with tiny pecks on your head and little displays of affection that don’t disgust or disrupt the people around you. He also uses them as a comforting tactic for whenever your nerves kick in. Being as observant as he is, he memorizes every body movement that signals your discomfort and knows your fidgeting down to a T. Whenever you show signs of distress, he’ll give you little pecks on your hairline and gently brush through your locks with his nimble fingers, coaxing your anxiety away. He knows better than anyone that, sometimes, actions speak better than words.

• Given the elves and their free spirited nature, dancing is a common practice among them. Whether it’s a festival or just an everyday activity, they are often seen gracefully twirling and prancing to the sound of harps and flutes, laughter and banter mingling together with the music to form gentle melodies that drift throughout the forest. Because of Legolas’ status, he was taught how to dance at a young age and is very adept at the art of bodily expression. You aren’t bad at it yourself, in fact, you are quite the contrary, but your parents never told you how to deal with a height difference while maintaining an elegant composure. More often than not, attempts result in the two of you collapsing in fits of giggles, questioning your decision to try it out in the first place. It wasn’t entirely your fault, though. His trademark smirk and slightly raised eyebrow peering down at you does make it hard to keep the regal aesthetic.

Can you imagine Clara and the Doctor arguing about literature?

Moby-Dick- honestly, shut up and get to the whale.”

“Doctor! That book is a classic because of its intricate and beautifully developed symbolism and its deep philosophical musing on the very nature of truth and reality and the relationship between the two! Shut up and get to the whale, my God, coming from you of all people-”

DO NOT SUPPORT E2 GAMING

Everyone already knows that E2 Gaming did some really shady stuff with Taisho Alice, but their behavior only continues to get shadier. 

What I can only assume came from the horrible controversy on their facebook and the backlash they have received from fans, E2 Gaming has completely deleted their Facebook page. When I tried to pull it up from a Google search, this was what I found. 

However, the website for E2 Gaming is still up and running. 

It’s obvious now that their goal in deleting the page was to hide and quell the fan outcry in order to sell more of their abysmal localization attempts. They are trying to deceive their customers so they can continue to produce horrible content. They are disrespecting the Western otome audience, the otome audience as a whole and, more than anyone else, they are severely disrespecting Primula. 

At this point, it’s up to the fans on social media to expose them. Speak out against them at every turn. Reblog as many posts that have the truth and explain what is going on. If you see someone posting about wanting to buy the game or talking about it, make sure they know what they’re getting into. 

If you’re considering buying the game as I joke, I would sincerely reconsider. Giving money to this sham of a company is not a good idea and will only benefit them. If you want to benefit Primula and not E2, buy the Japanese version of Taisho Alice. You can find it on Amazon. If you want to support western releases, buy Aksys Games’ and Idea Factory International’s localizations as well as others like Nightshade that were grabbed from respectable indie companies. 

The person/people behind E2 are liars and scam artists. Do not touch Vol. 2 when it launches. Make sure they know we will not tolerate this kind of treatment. The western fans like myself have worked very hard to support the localization of otome games, and to see how people are trying to take advantage of our small market is disgusting.
