Translation review: [Commie] Senran Kagura 01

It’s Naruto time.

You

Why not just “got it”?

Opening

The opening translation sounds fine to me. The effects of the lines changing are really neat too.

Announce

The ship’s loudspeaker’s lines are not translated here.

Simple

A bit too simplified.

Calligraphy

I’m disappointed that the calligraphy on the wall isn’t translated.

Description

It’s the official name of the girls’ faculty. 内閣特務諜報部諜報一課付特殊機密諜報員養成所 is the full name (as written on the official site). It’s over-simplified in the English.

Superhuman

“Superhuman” just doesn’t say enough.

Pun

I guess… Though I don’t see why it’s necessary.

Class

Not school trip, off-campus class.

Granddaughter

Granddaughter. Asuka’s grandfather is a legendary ninja.

Ending

It was really hard to concentrate on the lyrics for obvious (visual) reasons. Either way, there were no “mistakes” that couldn’t be explained as poetry.

Conclusion: Okay

Accuracy: 7/10; Flow: 7/10; Atmosphere: 7/10

There are a number of mistranslations and over-simplified lines, and especially in the first half the script reads derpy. Though I don’t know how relevant this review is at all, considering that Commie uses the latecast translation from episode 2 on.

  1. The only thing I regret about dropping this anime is now I won’t be able to see possible Naruto references
