Don't like being called The Mighty Palm-san? :p I'd rather people start using the German von in non-German names. John von Johnstown.

Problem is that they're sometimes made into the subject of dialogue or jokes. Best solution: stick to western entertainment made for a western audience.

Like okay if its important to show that this is Japan and the culture plays a part in the story, then yes honorifics. NO honorifics if it could take place anywhere on earth and not change plot or a fantasy world

@Milennin or watch the subbed version? Because I dont have a problem with the honorifics themself, just when its in English. Aka a language that does not naturally use these honorifics.

I dont completely agree/disagree. Since idk the better translation it would be without losing its context or so since translating is hard. But did ppl seriously use japanese honorifics in dub?

I've seen people use a mix of European titles and Japanese honorifics. Seeing sir or lord paired with a Japanese honorific is pretty cringy.

Yeah it just always feels so out of place when this happens and dubs sound cringey enough as it is most of the time.
