IF YOU READ THE SLEEPYFANS TRANSLATION OF THE CHAPTER:

ON PAGE 16, SASUKE DID NOT SAY KAGES. HE SAID HOKAGE.

CAN THEY EVEN READ FUCKING RIGHT? IT SAYS HOKAGE. HOKAGE. AS IN THERE IS A "HO" KANJI BEFORE THE "KAGE" KANJI.

WTF SLEEPYFANS. THAT IS A BEGINNERS' MISTAKE. COMPLETELY CHANGES WHAT SASUKE WAS SAYING!

:| Tried to avoid spoilers. Can't say the same for the comments.

:| Yes. It's pretty fucking sad, too. SERIOUSLY. It says it right there! I barely know any Japanese, and I could read it just fine!

Also a friend said basically Sasuke was saying "We'll take the Hokage's neck" or something like that, which is infinityX more awesome.

Yeah, sometimes literal translations are hard to come by, because they're ultimately idioms that don't translate well, but mistaking Hokage for Kages...is quite a slip up.

Yeaaaaah, they do that all the time, though. You'd think they'd know to double-check by now....

I wouldn't whine, since they release translations faster than anyone else does, as far as I know :P If we want chapters quick, we have to expect them not to be top quality.

XD; Yeah, but..... seriously. I barely know any Japanese and I could read the diff?

And I only complain about their mistranslations that completely change the story, really.
