  1. Taichō is Captain eh? Not commander

  2. In Response to LUKE: I just get the information off of wikipedia. Usually it seems right. I also sometimes wait for the TV-Nihon translation to show up, and adjust when I can.

    I checked around, and you're right - it does seem to usually translate to Captain. But I found a few instances where Commander was also listed. Apparently it translates as "Big Leader" - so I can see where the translation on our end could get confused.

    This looks like the word for Commander,

  5. Well, I don't know wether any of the translators of TV-Nihon view my blog, let alone this tread of discussion, but they seem pretty versed in accurately translating things, and sometimes correct themselves when they make a mistake.

    And no you didn't offend me at all. I watch Bleach too (the Manga and the Anime on Cartoon Network). That's where I saw you where correct, when I did an internet search on Taichou - as that same word was used for the various Captains of the different squads.
