Wolfram’s hilarious language mistakes

I think the YenPress translations of Wolfram’s “language mistakes” are too refined and don’t do justice to what he actually said in the original version.

Ch107

What he meant to say: Un, niau (Yes, you look good.)

What he said: Un, niou (Yes, you stink.)

*Note: niau = look good, niou = smell bad, stink


Ch108

What he meant to say: Ojou kincho shiteru. (My Lady is nervous.)

What he said: Ojou kancho shiteru. (My Lady is doing an enema.)

*Note: kincho = nervousness, kancho = enema (or a prank)


Ch129

What he meant to say: Ojou, genki dashite. (My Lady, please cheer up.)

What he said: Ojou, benki dashite. (My Lady, please get the toilet seat.)

*Note: genki = cheerfulness, benki = toilet seat


BONUS:

To me as a non-native English speaker, Wolfram is actually one of the most relatable characters in Kuro.

I feel you, Wolfram…!!! (´-ω-`)

I just noticed...

Whenever Ciel met with Queen Victoria for a private audience…

she was always with just the Double Charles…

John Brown was nowhere to be seen…

even though he might generally show up after the audience was over with…

But you know, it makes sense since he’s described as her aide, maybe he supposedly doesn’t have his place whenever the Queen meets with her watchdog, which is why only her butlers stay.

EXCEPT…

…in ch108, because it went the other way around when the Queen met with Sieglinde and they discussed possibilities for war weapons. This time the Double Charles didn’t stay but John Brown did and assisted to the meeting with Sieglinde. 

It’s also at the same time that he said this…

…after Ciel tried to double cross them and to hide from the Queen the true nature of Sieglinde’s latest invention. 

Conclusion? Nothing new, but just to add on the theory that Brown is probably not just a simple “aide” to Victoria, but rather one of the main reasons…

…she’s so powerful and shady herself.
