3078[conan] A Comment to Erica-Sasami's Fansub, Some Extra Character Info I've deduced and A Topic for Discussion
- Apr 1, 2000Yes, I do support Erica doing her own version of Fansub -- I would not
doubt the quality of fansubs done by a seasoned Conanian, and I fear
Fox's version would cause some misunderstanding; Asian stations tend to
be "loyal" to the original version, but I do doubt if the Americans
would do it right, as in a commerical station like Fox. But I shall warn
Erica to use words carefully as this would undoubtfully pose an image
for the character concrened. For example, I would see Shinichi as a
(often) refined person, and I wouldn't very happy if I found you
portrayed him as Garrett the Second (for this noun, ask Cherie for
explantion; she should know what I mean.).
The character info I've deduced:
1. Eri should be paying the living expenses of Ran before Conan came.
The evidence: If Sonoko (Daughter of a zaibatsu) and Shinichi (Son
of a successful novel writer; I bet Yusaku must be rather rich) are
in Teitan Middle School, it's easy to guess it's a private,
expensive one (as like public schools in Britain). You know Kogoro
have been earning very little since he divorced (his agency lacked
customers), the tuition should be paid by Eri... Also, as I said
Kogoro's agency lacked customers, the Mouris should have very
little money, but they didn't strave... if Eri didn't give any
money to Ran, how could the Moruris in that shape! (Of course now
Kogoro is pretty rich, as in Esp. 126 (The Dark Organization's
Billion-Yen Robbery), Kogoro's bank book has been filled so he
attemped to ask Akeme to change his book.)
2. It seems that Genta would also be a flirter when he grown up. In
Esp. 127 (The Girl from the Dark Organization) when the DBs are
seaching for the boy's brother in a game centre, Genta seemed to be
attracted to a H-Game console.
The topic to be discussed: If you were a student in Teitan's 1B class,
what would you feel of Conan as a classmate? Don't forget you should be
thinking like a six-year-old!
"Quest for Love, Quest for Dream, Quest for All Truth!!"
T'is the aim we would strive for, secured in our minds!
O look, through tempests it would never change;
At the time of distress we would hold the truth,
the Eternal Truth!
