Podcast Episode #0394
Published by 02 February 2016, 6:07 PM EST

In our attempt to get things back on a weekly schedule for 2016, we must once again preempt our yearly news recap and predictions episode (stay tuned for that — it’s not not coming!). Instead, this week’s episode brings a bit of a language refresher and behind-the-scenes look at some internal Kanzenshuu debates. We are in the process of changing some of the name spellings in our style guide, so tune in for sneak-peek at names we are either in the process of deciding or want to avoid for as long as possible in hopes they solve themselves!

Episode #0394! VegettoEX discusses the process of adapting a name from “Dragon Ball” in Japanese to our alphabet and have it still make sense, sound the same, and do something to acknowledge or bring out its pun source. Some names are easy, some are even deceptively simple, but others stump us a bit to this day. Tune in for a bit of a behind-the-scenes lesson and learn a bit about some of the most difficult name spellings to adapt!


Enjoy! Discuss this episode on the Kanzenshuu forum, and be sure to connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, and Tumblr.
