    But "The Death" is, indeed, a very dumb name

    English bad

    Also why translate it at all if it (presumably) was in Spanish in the original Japanese text

    That'd be like translating the Servant Class names across dubs and subs and who'd be stupid enough to do that-

    Don't try for a direct translation, it doesn't work. Romance languages tend to use articles a lot more frequently than English, so "La Muerte" or "A Morte", for instance, would work just fine.
    It's still dumb in Spanish, which was Ratman's point.

    I'm half spanish and find it fine, even if it's really uninspired.
    It would just be like having an attack called "Death".

    Well, I of course can't speak for everyone, but in my experience the overuse of bad Spanish was a consistent source of mockery (or perhaps memery) in Bleach threads. Heck, I have a friend who still occasionally drops "Exacta!" or "No es exacta, Shinigami!" in random convos.

    It's certainly better if you've got a Tarot theme going on

    Yeah, and if you were talking about the general usage of Spanish in Bleach, you'd have a point, but the discussion was specifically about the usage of "La Muerte".

    Well if you get that specific then it's just your word against mine. I think it's stupid just like the rest, you think that it's somehow an exception, how does this argument go anywhere from this? Make a poll about it?

    Anyway, we're way off-topic as it is.

    how's the writing?
    Though abandoned, forgotten, and scorned as out-of-date dolls, they continue to carry out their mission, unchanged from the time they were designed.
    Machines do not lose their worth when a newer model appears.
    Their worth (life) ends when humans can no longer bear that purity.

    It's not. By the norms and standards of the Spanish language, "Death" is a feminine-gendered word (that was Ratman's point of contention) and proper nouns can and do use the article (that was your point of contention). Have you literally skipped all the other posts in the conversation? Or are you just so stubborn you can't admit you're wrong?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Seriously, leaving aside how asinine it is to argue "it's your word against mine" as if languages don't have rules (both prescriptive and descriptive), or how you tried to move the goalpost from "La Muerte" to the general usage of Spanish, or how you're now trying to slink away with how suddenly you now care about this being off-topic, I'm not even the only poster who said "Nah, it sounds fine in Spanish".

    Just take the L, DH, it happens.

    What the actual fuck are you talking about.
    While Ratman was wrong about the word's gender, that was never the bloody point, the point was that naming an attack "The Death" OR just "Death" IS DUMB. Which is subjective, so the only argument to be made is whether there was a fandom consensus on it being dumb or not. I brought up the general fan reaction because, duh, there isn't an archived poll on "which of the mangled Spanish used in the Hueco Mundo arc in Bleach did you consider stupid?", at least to my knowledge. Language rules have NOTHING to do with this because we weren't arguing about grammar to begin with.
    Were we even having the same conversation???

    - - - Updated - - -

    The only way for me to "take the L" here is if you can actually find a significant number of people who think that that attack name isn't stupid, to counterbalance all the people I've seen who think most or ALL of the Spanish in Bleach was stupid (including that one attack). And as for your disingenuous assertion, if you weren't so keen on me "taking the L" you'd remember that I've ALWAYS been mindful of the thread topic when discussing.

    Because that's totally what you've been talking about when you brought out the dictionary, right.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'll say it again, just so there's no chance of misunderstanding: "La Muerte" is a dumb name for an attack. "Death" is a dumb name fr an attack. "The Death" is a dumb name for an attack. Almost every other usage of Spanish in Bleach was either plain dumb or so dumb as to run back to being amusing (but still dumb). Feel free to argue with that. Or not. Preferably in another thread.

    ESPADA CONTRA ESPADA.



    'La Muerte' is kind of a stupid name for an attack indeed, but I've seen much dumber. It's much less lame than the rest of Bleach Spanish terminology or whatever garbage Quetzalcoatl is spewing out her mouth at any given time.

    Netflix's dub for Apocrypha and Last Encore is just embarrassing.

    I'm not too fond of the overall LE Mexican dub (Apocrypha's was overall better with Vlad, Amakusa, Gordes, Mordred, Atalanta, Achilles, Shakespeare and Semiramis all being standouts) but Alicia Velez (Nero) is a treasure.

    Spoiler:
    She's also the daughter of Homer Simpson's voice actor, and I'm sure there's an excellent joke to be made there that has been eluding me this whole time.
