  1. I have a question concerning Netflix’s translations, and home video releases like the one in this review. Excluding the Madman/Funimation release of the Violet Evergarden TV series, is it normal for companies to reject the Netflix subtitles in favor of their own? I’ve been disappointed with Netflix’s translations in the past, and I’d gladly wait for a home video release if it meant I’d be watching something with a better subtitle translation.

    1. I would say it depends on the distributor. Anime Limited don’t always have the time/money to make their own subtitles so I believe they re-used the Netflix subs for B: The Beginning. In the case of Violet Evergarden, it was known since broadcast that the subtitles were incorrect on specific parts that carried over onto the dub so they wanted to improve them if they can.

      In general I say that distributors should always revise the subtitles regardless of whether it came from Netflix or if its years since the previous stream/DVD release. Discotek does this every time, while Nozomi & Rightstuf did the same for Gundam.

      But yeah overall, Netflix translations do the job but if possible I would prefer that distributors revise subtitles to improve the viewing experience.
