    Teams names and Sonamy in Sonic Advance 3

    Nothing major, just something random I’ve noticed in translation

    Sonic/Tails and Sonic/Knuckles were translated faitfully: S/T is called “Yuujou Pea”, literally “Friendship Pair” (aww) and S/K is called “Kenka Tomodachi Pea”, literally “Fighting Friends Pair”. So far so uninteresting.

    The real interesting teams are Cream/Amy and Sonic/Amy.

    In English, C/A is called “Team Jubilee”, a name that baffled some. Of the many meanings of “jubilee”, the one that makes more sense is “A time of celebration or rejoicing”, closely related to the word “jubiliation”. After all, Cream and Amy are best pals and Advance 3 marks the second time they’ve hanged out together, roughly six months after Heroes - I bet they were jubiliating!

    Well, turns out it is a much more interesting name for them, because in Japanese they are known as......!

    “Girls Pair”.

    Wow. The imagination is overflowing. For once I’m glad the English translators intervened.

    EDIT: just for curiosity I checked the name of this team in the other languages. Turns out, Spanish, French and Italian all decided to follow the Japanese name (they probably didn’t understand the meaning of Jubilee either lmao)...

    (the Italian version doesn’t even bother with putting the word “team”, no it’s just “Little Girls”)

    And the German version is particularly lazy, as they just slapped “Team Jubilee” again as if it was a name:

    I can’t prove to you that this is not the English version, trust me lol

    And now for the real reason I thought of writing this post!

    As we know, the English translation toned down most of the Sonamy hints throughout the years (more details here and here), and it’s only recently that Western media have started to hint at the ship more blatantly (Boom, IDW). We can chalk it up to cultural differences and different portrayals of Sonic, but it was what it was.

    The only instance I can think of where the opposite happened is in Advance 3:

    In Japanese, S/A is called “’Raburabu?’ Pea”, literally “‘Lovey-dovey?’ Pair”. Notice the question mark. It’s very tongue-in-cheek, clearly poking fun at Sonic not sharing Amy’s enthusiasm at all.

    The English version, for whatever reason, missed the sarcasm entirely:

    Sure, Sonic still has an expression that screams “Why are we still here? Just to suffer?”, but the name seems much more earnest, like it’s saying yeah, they are lovely!

    And of course all the other languages followed suit:

    “Adorable Couple”

    “Beautiful Couple”

    “Charming Couple”

    “Pretty Couple”

    The Japanese name seems very out of place now, doesn’t it? Somebody in the translation team clearly had an agenda.

    ... maybe one day I’ll stop obsessing over small translation details, but that day is not today.

    [id: four gifs of gao xiaolian from episode eight of word of honor. she is interacting with zhang chengling in all of them; in the first we see her in profile, turned to the right, drawing a breath and preparing to speak. the second shows her looking down and to the left, lips pursed in thought, before she turns to the right to look up at chengling. in the third she’s talking and smiling, turned in three-quarter profile to the right, and in the last one she’s also talking but turned slightly to the left, playfully teasing with a small smile on her face. end id.]

    mutuals who are too cool to consume mcelroy content look away

    i saw theres a new season of taz and griffin is dming again so i was like okay maybe this might be decent background listening for me (i unfortunately really liked taz balance i’m sorry ok! sorry) and not 60 seconds into the prologue he pronounced primer with like a short i. like primmer. please tell me he mispronounced it and that’s not just how americans say primer or something

    #to be honest i will probably not end up listening to this season since balance was the only one i really really liked #amnesty was quite good but i missed the goofiness of balance #and i cannot stand any of the seasons where the other brothers DM #partly because theyre just not as good #partly because i outright hate travis and despise every moment i have to hear his voice so any extended time listening to him is a dealbreak #er #partly because. somewhat like myself you can tell listening to griffin as a player #that he would rather be the DM #and it's distracting lol #i don't blame him i also get restless as a player and wish i was DMing. which is why i DM #saying that i do somewhat miss being a player as well :/ #but that is mainly because i love getting deeply into a single character rather than actually like playing the game dfhgkj

    the last dallas player to score in tampa was tyler in 2019????

    #no wonder they've had a disaster season #stars lb #i didn't think i would get emotional about his coming back #but 🥺🥺🥺 #i think the bubble affected how i see him #he didn't score many goals (obviously because he was injured i don't blame him he was still incredible in other areas of the game) and i #didn't think his return to the lineup would make make a huge difference but #🥰🥰🥰

    One thing that I think makes Edelgard a contentious character (but also really interesting), is that she was right to start the war she did.

    She's the only house leader where the social and political changes she wants to bring would positively impact the majority of the cast, including multiple characters from each house (some directly, some indirectly). She wants to dismantle the Church and the Slitherers, both of whom are extremely shady (and in every route their leaders are at least knocked out of power). There are a number of reasons why she had to go to war and couldn't resolve this peacefully.

    But despite this, Fire Emblem Three Houses, especially in Dmitri's route, is about the horrors of war. Besides that, most of the characters in this war aren't fighting for ideology, they're fighting to protect their own. Even Byleth only picks a side of the war based on what class of students they chose to pick. It's really interesting how Dorothra and Linhart, two characters who loath violence, are Black Eagle and stick with Edelgard by default, even in routes other than Crimson Flower.

    Alongside that, each of the main three routes has a fundamentally different ideology for war. Dmitri's route says "war is horrible and brings out the worst in people" Claude's route says "violence is not the only option when it comes to enacting social change," and Edelgard's route is saying "sometimes violence is not only inevitable, but necessary." All three of these ideas can coexist, but both Claude's and Dmitri's routes lean into more pacifist sounding ideals, even though neither character, by any definition, is pacifists.

    So the question people have to graple with regarding Edelgard is "even if a war is justified, does that make it ok?" People who say "no" are a lot more likely to try and undermine the good reasons Edelgard went to war. The people more likely to say "yes" to that question are more likely to ignore the serious harm and suffering Edelgard's war causes.

    Like most things in the game, the question is perspective. While Edelgard started the war that the second part of the plot is about, Claude and Dmitri both make similar decisions in their own route. Dmitri, upon reaching the gates of Embarr, is given the choice to try and resolve things diplomatically. He instead chooses to fight her because their differences in perspective are incompatible and neither wishes to back down. Claude, upon defeating the Empire and learning about the Slitherers, decides to start war with them because leaving them be would only threaten the world. Mirrors of the reasons Edelgard had to go to war.

    War is sometimes necessary, war is horrible, war is always inferior to peaceful solutions. These are all ideals that can and should coexist. Each route emphasizes their respective philosophy on war, but they all include the importance of the other two.

    There's a good reason Edelgard is contentious, her primary philosophy is uncomfortable to think about, especially while simultaneously embracing the other two. Especially if you reject her philosophy (and by extension the themes of Three Houses regarding war). Alongside that, Edelgard's philosophy initially seems contrary to the beliefs about war forefront of every other route in the game, so whichever of those three worldviews you lean towards will likely impact how much you side with the character. Thus, the question that should be asked about Edelgard isn't whether she's evil or a villain, but rather whether the sacrifice of human life in purpose to a greater goal is worth it. Was Edelgard's war worth it? Was Claude's campaign against the Agarthans worth it? Was Dmitri's invasion of Embarr worth it? Can war ever be worth it?

    #i honestly dont blame ppl for missing this stuff since previous FE games (or at least Awakening) arent particularly thematically dense #and getting the full picture requires you to play an at least 40 hour rpg three times #plus I think what the game says about perspective is interesting enough that you dont need to replay the game that many times #to unlock interesting thematic content #fire emblem three houses #edelgard#claude#dmitri#edelgard discourse #fe3h thematic discussion
