    honorifics should always be kept and it pisses me off whenever people leave em out, only thing that pisses me off more is when they're replaced with shit like miss and mr

      I got into an argument with a friend on this ages ago, the gay started throwing around this idea of a "pure translation" to make his argument

        the way i see it, it's 2023 and nobody's gonna shit their pants outta confusion if they see -san or -chan. it literally ADDS to it, giving context to the relationships between characters. then you have shit like miss and mr, which i've seen used in situations where it just sounds awkward.

      i think we should embrace and learn about others cultures languages instead of trying to make everything pure translations which never work and always sound awkward or retarded, it's not about being a weeb. i would apply this to any language in the world. people against something like this probably already complain about having to read subtitles for foreign films.

        Except Japanese and English are literally the polar opposites of each other when it comes to both context and language. Again, having honorifics in a setting outside of Japan or from a blatantly Japanese person is completely fucking retarded because you will never hear a person refer to someone as -san, -kun, -chan, etc. unless they're a gay weeb or practicing Japanese.
        The other issue is that people want a literal translation, which is a tall as shit, if not borderline impossible order because Japanese and English are quite literally the polar opposites of each other in terms of context, sentence structure, meaning, and even shit like politeness and rank when addressing superiors/inferiors. Then you throw in shit like countless puns, dialect, mannerisms, idioms and so forth of the Japanese language, be it written or especially spoken where the entire meaning of a message can change just because of the tone.
        Point is, bros misconstrue the difference between a literal translation which would be dry as fuck and basically MTL, versus localization efforts which they really only hate because some underpaid fuck keeps shoehorning in Working Designs/Treehouse level dialogue in it.

        tl;dr: Weebs are still retarded and will never be satisfied unless an impossibly autistic fan translator does it for them.
        Also, only a special brand of retard with ADHD bitches about subtitles.

    If an honorific can't translate nicely into English like Mr. or Ms. then just leave it out entirely. They're unnecessary.

    If the characters call eachother by their family names instead of their given names then you can remove the honorifics. You don't need "kun" or "chan" to show a character knows the other well just have them be on a first name base, easy.
