Translations...

This goes for the Manga as well as the anime, but since I post mainly in the manga section I figured I'd put it here. So anyway it has come to my attention that many of the curse words we see in the english translations are just put there by the translator for effect and nott reallty there in Japanese. For example I have seen Naruto say "fuck" in the anime and Hidan say "fuck" in the Manga. Those are just 2 examples. I have also see Naruto say "shit" and other shit (no pun intended). Now i really dont care I'm just wondering did Kishi/The Animators put that in or did the translators. And if it's really put there in Japanese then how come in the english publication/and dub it's not there. Isn't that censorship?

Re: Translations...

Its more likley that they are cursing for sure but not the exact same cursing..in othere word the translatours trying to find the parallel meaning for the jap cursing and in the mean time reflect the charactar mode and meaning..

also the word "shimatta" = shit ..they translate it ethier "shit or "dame it" the closer to what it gonna dilever the picture to u..the deffrince between the manga and the anime translatours is what maken the diffrence in cursing translation but for sure kishi put the cursing from the 1st place otherwise there will be a problem in censorship like u said.

P.s: dude give me some rep..i reped u alot

Re: Translations...

I think that 'damn' 'shit' and 'fuck' are all used in the same way when spoken-- It's a word that is said that has some anger in it-- It's not like these words actually have meaning when we say it. We could be saying "AH! DONKEY!!" as a curse word, but it's not like we're talking about the actual donkey.
Such the same, some translators like to use 'shit' or 'fuck' other than 'damn'. It's their choice as translators.

But literally, 'kuso' means 'shit'-- As in feces.
