It is to fans of the original Japanese version.

Not really. It may be a big deal to the purists, or to the more hardcore branches. For most of us, it's just a minor inconvenience, and a temporary one at that.

For us who grew up with the latin dub its a big deal as well
The Latin dub was much more faithful to the source material than the ameridub ever was, its especially annoying how the spanish subs use terminology they never did use in the first place

Funidub style subs bother me

Maybe it's cause in JoJo the names are so defined in the acting it's easy to overwrite the subs, but in DBSuper I have to have my mind overwrite the subs over 20 times an episode, often more due to the sheer amount of name changes.

Another example is Crunchyroll's Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V subs. They use Engrish names instead of translated names. Leaving us with Ute, Hugo and Joeri over Yuto, Yugo and Yuri. And all their Yu-Gi-Oh! series use TCG card names, meaning you clearly hear Yugi say "Black Magician" but the subs read "Dark Magician". And those subs bother me greatly.



Do the subs still refer to Osiris as Slifer? Goddamn 4Kids dub change.

It doesn't bother me that much, I know what they're referring to when they use dub terms and I can recognize the phrases in Japanese. Fans who were previously dub only would probably be confused by a more literal translation, so I get why they went the route they did.

It is a miracle that we have a simulcast, the subtitles are serviceable and the home release will rectify any problems that do exist.

Yes, they do. I's nit that big of a deal to me that they use the English card names. If you wanna blame somebody about it, I would probably think that it is Konami's fault to use their names so people can buy more cards
Could Somebody PM Me which episodes of Dragon Ball Z use Dragon Box Footage on FunimationNow?

Considering that origin of the name had to do with a gag than anything, and there is no Egyptian god that goes by that name, it's dumb as all hell.

Seriously. Crunchyroll has had the rights for like 4 months now and there's still bitching.
Supreme Kai: Who are you people?! Don't you know the universe matters more than your meaningless squabble?!

Majin Vegeta: MEANINGLESS, HUH?! WHAT DO YOU KNOW OF MEANINGLESS!? Spend most of your life ruled by another! Watch your race dwindle to a handful! AND THEN, tell me what has more meaning then your own strength! I have in me the blood of a Saiyan prince. He is nothing but a joke! Yet I've had to watch him surpass me in strength, my destiny thrown to the wayside! He's...He's even saved my life like I were a helpless child...He has stolen my honor, and his debts...must be paid!

Not the first time they've broken this rule. "King Kai Fist" is another notable example.

Ki Blast Cannon and King Kai Fist were both in the original Budokai game. So it's not like these names have absolutely no precedent, it's probably something weird on Toei's end.

Anyway, I see no reason to get all pissed off about the terminology. Is it dumb? Yes. Does it ruin the translation? No. It's still a perfectly competent translation for the most part regardless of the handling of certain proper nouns. It's not like we've got them tossing "Mondo cool" in there.
I challenged Ash Ketchum to a Pokémon Battle.

This clearly makes me the very best, like no one ever was.
