I’ve got “ZA POWA”!

I spent much of the latter half of last week watching through the second half of GaoGaiGar, an experience which proved equal parts awesome and painful – painful largely thanks to a particularly odd subtitling choice…

I’m really not sure what to make of it – I had thought that maybe it was an odd mandate from Sunrise or something (stranger things have happened), but then the show has eye-catch cards like this…

So I have to think that Media Blasters thought that “The Power” sounded kind of doofy for a phrase used so regularly throughout the last few episodes, and as such elected for the cute, weeaboo-esque alternative.

Which I found really, really annoying.

On a related note, I do wonder if ZA POWA had anything to do with Wakamotos interest in Jupiter in Code Geass…
