Note: This is only a rough translation. I’m not yet that good in reading kanji, but rest assured that I double checked and looked it up. Let’s wait for our master tlanon’s trans, I hope master picks this up because this is reallllyyy cuuuute and sweet and *sly Naruto*
Naruto: I’m home… - Hinata: Welcome home, Naruto-kun. Naruto: Yeah, Hinata… - Naruto: I was late today, too… too bad. Naruto: Eh? Is there something up today? - Himawari: Hmm? Dad? Boruto: Welcome home… - Naruto: Boruto, Himawari! Why are the two of you still awake at this time?
A question for movie experts - I have the distinct impression that, particularly in TV shows and movies dealing with current reality in some dramatic or gritty way, the rule is to invent central African countries from scratch - but liberally mention other countries. By ‘central African’ I mean, South Africa seems to be fair game, as are the northern countries like Egypt or Morocco, but countries such as Tanzania, Angola and so on are normally swapped for a fictional place, freshly made up. For instance, Designated Survivor had an episode where the Algerian government was sheltering terrorists (US navy SEALs carried out an operation there), and makes constant use of other countries, such as Saudi Arabia and Russia, but invented a fictional country, Naruba, for the scenario of a warlord kidnapping US aid workers and threatening to take over a major town. Newsroom, another series which kept close watch on current events, discusses the real events which happened in Egypt at the time of filming and the 2012 Damascus bombing, but reprised The West Wing’s Equatorial Kundu instead of using an actual West African republic (that series also invented the Sahelise Republic). The Interpreter created the fictional country of Matobo, which was openly based on Zimbabwe; TV show 24 paid homage to the movie by naming the president of their own fictional country, Sangala, Ule Matobo. And Madam Secretary is another political drama which doesn’t shy away from using real events or imagining realistic political scenarios but when it comes to the African continent, it somehow feels the need to make up a fictional Republic of West Africa.
Honestly - I don’t know if this is an actual thing that happens or a personal bias of some kind, but if I had to think of made-up European countries, off the top of my head I could only name Genovia and that Sokovia thing from the Avengers? I had a look at the Wikipedia page for fictional European countries, and yeah, that seems to be pretty much it?
The question is, do they make this because they assume the viewer would be unfamiliar with African geography (this is the reason, I think, why actors almost routinely employ a generic ‘African’ accent, instead trying to get a specific regional accent) or they want to avoid pinning plotline-related tragedies to a specific country where that stuff never happened? Thoughts?
