When Anime Fansubs Go Wrong

A bowl of pain rice. One of my most fond memories of holidaying in Thailand was the less-than-perfect translations in restaurant menus. As we travelled further from Bangkok, the translation got worse (and funnier as a result). I thought of those moments when I came across this gem of awesomeness.

With its root in the early 80s, a fansub is a version of an anime program that has been subtitled by fans, for fellow fans who do not understand Japanese. Not all translators are equal, and sometimes, when the translations go wrong, the results can be very amusing to say the least.

The Perfect Unison’s Wooden Headphones

I don’t usually keep wish lists, They are a sobering reminder of the amazing things out there that I can never afford to buy. If I were to have one, these headphones would certainly be at the top of the list. A headphone company by the name of The Perfect Unison got together with Dutch artist, Parra, to create a striking headphone design. Made out of nine layers of Finnish Birch Wood and silkscreen printed by Parra, only 50 of these beautiful wooden headphones were made. Have a look at the images after the jump.
