Is this a real Japanese-English translation from Galvatron?

At 4'12" in.

Man, and I thought Spike swearing in the movie was cool!

And for a laugh I'll throw this one in too.

What, "bullshit"? I think the Japanese have less of a stick up their asses about swearing (and many other things) than us English speakers.

Yeah but you'd expect it to be 'nonsence' or some other child-friendly term.

Granted the show is about giant robots trying to kill each other...

Sometimes translators take liberties with the Japanese meaning and add a more colorful translation

One subbing group could put

"You brats!"

While another could put

"You bastards!"



Tvnihon subbed the episode
