Why is funimation calling misaka bug zapper instead of sparky?
Seven Seas calls her sparky since that is what the fans had decided to translate bei bei as, and it works better in english.
Bug zapper doesn't make sense since a teen would not compare someone to a bug zapper however sparky is something that is somewhat common to call electrically superpowered people. also you wouldn't call a girl zapper, and he has always seen her as a girl, that is part of the reason she initially dislikes him.
You've been calling me a zapper since we first meet VS You've been calling me sparky since we first meet.
so, zapper,you get remedial classes too (it should be got at 19:38 of episode 1 I think) vs so, sparky,you get remedial classes too
....and a zappy esper in the evening vs ....and a sparky esper in the evening
In eden of the east you guys named Pantsu Panties because one sub group chose to translate his name like that, so why is it that now you have to change the nick name that seven seas and fans of this show both agreed upon. I have been looking forward to this coming out since before it was announced, and can't wait for the dub but this along with the long wait just makes me depressed about your guys treatment of this series.
