Gravion in English

I went to Town Hall with my friend today. Though I wanted to get a duel mat for TCG, I could not get it today. It was still on the way.

As I could afford to buy some DVDs today, we went to a DVD shop named Hi-Fi near Kinokuniya. We saw some Anime DVDs in the shop. In Australia, many Japanese anime DVDs are popular. They are available much cheaper than in Japan. In Japan, if you want to buy a DVD, it costs about 6000 yen. This depends on the title, but most of anime for high aged people are very expensive. However, DVDs in Ausralia are very cheap. I found many DVD boxes sold in reasonable price. It costs less than 100$.

I chose Gravion Zwei DVDs for my fun and my study for English. I think you know that because I wrote many articles about Gravion in another place.It cost me 56$. If you try to buy the DVD in Japan, it costs 6000 yen. This is the same price as this DVD box. I think Japanese DVDs are too expensive. (The intention to regain the cost to make a film led the high price though...) The DVDs contains the original Japanese sound track and English sound track. Although I forgot some speeches in the anime, it is very easy to catch what the characters are saying. As I referred previously, the speech in anime uses formal language.

The DVD also has subtitle in the English language. I thought that it is useful for my study. But it is not true. The subtitle does not show what the characters say in English. Though I no longer need the subtitle to catch, it is regrettable.

It is quite interesting to find the effort to translate original expressions in the anime. For example, "合神" ,which means machines' combination to God Gravion is translated "combine". As the word "god" is not available for religious reasons, ゴッドグラヴィオン is called "Gran Gravion". The most funny translation is "Super Heavy-Weight Zan". This represents "超重斬", Gran Gravion's finishing move. This translation is too simple...

The TV programs in Australia are boring for me. So, it is a good way to study to watch Japanese anime in English.
