Juryoku in Anime Posts
Today/Tuesday’s question: what will you write to represent Juryoku in your Shinsekai Yori posts?
Haven’t went through the second episodes of Shinsekai Yori yet, so dunno if the situation has changed. Hover over images for sub groups.
You can use just one translation in your posts: ‘She harnessed her Power.’
This is confusing for readers using other fansubs.
You can use all translations: ‘She harnessed her Power/cursed power/Force/Cantus/gravity.’
This is bulky.
You can use no translation: ‘She harnessed her Juryoku.’
This is CHOTTO WEEABOO ROMAJI
You can not use the word: ‘She ate a cow sandwich, also known as a hamburger in Germany-eating countries.’
This is unwieldy.
You can hope these fansubs agree on a common translation.
This will never happen.
You can use only Hadena’s translation: ‘She harnessed her gravitational force. The sheer mass of two years worth of compressed hamburgers made a glopping sound as the vacuous nihility of her stomach engulfed her powerless enemies.’
This is my decision.
Discuss. What are you going to do about the Force of this cursed power? The gravity of this situation of Power deserves a Cantus.
