Re: [JP] Little Busters!
It is great that Crunchyroll picked this up for legal streaming in 1080p. I wasn't going to buy this but it looks gorgeous so I might change my mind about importing it.
Honestly it is tough to know what to call Japanese people these days, especially in English. Some like to be called familyname-san even in English. Some like family name without an honorific. Others like to be called simply by their given name. Still others like to be called firstname-san. Some will call me Harry san, others Pulley san, even in English. Others just Harry. Or Harry Potter...
Even in Japanese it is not simple; in casual conversation it is nothing like Japanese class, that's for sure... I was taught to never say anata except to very close family but it seems to be common now in casual conversation. And I was taught not to say watashi or use other personal pronouns for myself unless absolutely necessary but again, they seem to use them a lot these days, perhaps because english uses I and me quite often.
My pet peeve is when the character says oniisan and the subbers replace it with the older brother's name instead... Ugh... This is why I prefer no subs generally unless the main subject is such that I don't know half the words. Hearing the Japanese and reading bad subs just makes my head hurt!
