Translation isn't simply a matter of changing the words and grammar from one language to another, it is a collaboration between the author and the translator to create a new work of art which maintains a similarity in style and tone to the originality, as well as plot and characters.
When the art/writing you love comes from another country, some customs, jokes and sayings get lost in translation. Learn what aspects don't penetrate the language and culture barrier in anime, and get to know the origin of the works more intimately.
