Those images could very be because they know that's how it has been officially translated in english, instead of them being a direct translation. It wouldn't be the first time they use an "official" english term, no matter how wrong it is as a translation. Heck, Japanese do tend to make a lot of mistakes when transliterating. (Recode\record anyone?)Japan has translated it as Reliabilty before though. Same for Mimi with Sincerity. So they're not mistranslated.
these are from the japanese exclusive Megane Ichiba glasses promotion, where you cant even get the glasses unless you live in japan
joe's is Seijitsu no Monshou, meaning "To be faithful, sincere, honest, and reliable. " so there are four options you can go for. the dub went for reliability, toeis official translation went for one of the other ones. reliability isnt incorrect
and until toei translated it as crest of sincerity didnt most people fan translate it to crest of innocence?
I'm no expert in the Japanese language, but honestly in all my researches I never found reliable as a meaning of 誠実; the closest thing I found is seriousness as a synonym. Reliable means something very precise to me in english (as well as in my mother language).
What you describe is exactly Purity, in the sense of child purity, i.e. no filters.Similarly, Mimi's crest should be the "Crest of Truth", since her whole thing is that her always saying what's on her mind gives her a kind of endearing childish innocence that inspires people. But it's not quite the same thing as the "Crest of Innocence" it's more like a "The Crest that Abhors Deception and Artifice".
I personally found that part really entertaining, it glimpsed a darker course of events that could have mixed well with mature topics (not porn, mind you!), seeing how the characters are older too.Speaking of Sore people have a problem with Dark Gennai licking Sora, well here is a little secret he is the bad guy. Besides I find Dark Gennai really enterteining in a Batman 1966 villain kind of way.
Also, yeah, I like bad guys who act as bad guys.
