Wait, the Anime News Network didn't like that they kept the honorifics?
Let me point something out: I'm a big fan of dubbing. I believe everyone should see something in their own language. I do however wish that the honorifics would remain. Why port over a joke that you aren't even going to explain if you aren't going to keep the honorifics?
That's another thing... people like Funimation will have people point to something, but the words will be left in Japanese... At least have a subtitle there or something.
