this is the best reaction ever
1) Dubs are not casted to sound like the Japanese voice actors, or at least the vast majority of good dubs aren’t. They’re casted to fit the characters, regardless of how the original voice actor sounded. For example, little boys in Japanese voice acting are generally given really high, chirpy voices. Generally when they are dubbed into English they go for more what an actual 10-year-old boy might sound like. This is not bad dubbing, in fact this is generally considered good dubbing while keeping it like the original would not have been seen as good dubbing.
2) Toko, Owada, Ogami, etc. are all just as correct as Touko, Oowada, Oogami, etc. This is where you run into the problem of romanizing Japanese words. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out very well. Even the Japanese games run into this problem. I’m replaying through SDR2 right now on Danganronpa 1-2 Reload, and I almost completely forgot that in the game they legitimately romanize Hinata’s name as Hazime instead of Hajime. If the very games you adore spell the names differently in English than you do, why get up in arms when someone else does it?
See, this, I think, is what I love about Kronk. On the shallowest surface level, he fills the “low IQ sidekick” role. But ONLY on the shallowest surface level.
I’d have to watch the movie again to go into any detail, but Kronk is actually the smartest damn person IN this movie. There’s nothing he doesn’t know, he’s got all this specialized knowledge, dude is probably horrifically well read. He’s NOT stupid, he’s just eager to please and doesn’t have a proper “No” threshhold.
In the second gif, he’s like - “No, wait, I’m not who you think I am.”
Then in the fourth, he’s like - “Oh my God, the cook is gone and she’s got all these orders. If somebody doesn’t cook that up people are going to get upset! They’ll take it out on this poor woman who’s been on her feet all day and doesn’t deserve their wrath! And…oh my God…PEOPLE WILL BE HUNGRY!”
Then in the sixth gif he’s like - “NOT ON KRONK’S WATCH!”
He’s doing the right thing and he knows it. No judgement, no condescension, just always a moment to register the task at hand, determine the most logical course of action to completing it, and then it’s GO GO GO.
His only problem is that he never stops to ask himself whether this is actually his problem to solve, or whether people are taking advantage of him, and I love him for it.
I just…love him.
Kronk is the best hands down.
he needed a series just for him
If anyone is having a bad day, just spend 15 minutes and enjoy this guy’s wisdom after losing his wisdom teeth.
I guarantee you’ll be smiling by the end of it.
This child is so precious.
I lost it when he asked his dad to make him porridge in his “papa bear chair”.
Oh my god it’s like me if I ever was on drugs
