The power began to cry in the Latin dub of the Chainsaw Man

The daily bread on social networks is the discussion about whether dubbing into Latin Spanish is superior to other dubbing. Sometimes it is true, but sometimes it is not. The dubbing industry has come out of a difficult period due to the COVID-19 pandemicso dubbing projects also seem to be increasing in quality.

But in this case we are not here to cover news related to the state of the dubbing industry, but a Spanish-Latin dub that went so viral that it even reached an international audience. This is the anime adaptation of it Chain Saw Manwhat else could it be? Being one of the most popular series of the season and practically one of the most anticipated of the year, it was expected that anything related to it would become an instant trend.

And that was what happened when the third episode will be dubbed into Spanish Latin Chain Saw Man recently released through the platform crunchyroll. In the scene where Denji and Power discuss the importance of saving a cat, Power suggests to Denji that he should help him in exchange for allowing her to seduce him. This completely changes Denji’s speech, which finally gives him the inspiration he needs to offer his help to Power.

The scene is a comedic device, but it became very uncomfortable to listen to in the Latin dub. In the original scene, when Power notices Denji’s change in attitude, he makes surprised expressions between each of his sentences, and it’s something that can be seen directly in the tone of his sentences.

But in the Spanish Latin dub, no one knows what they were thinking. erika langaricawho speaks Power in the dub, tried to imitate the same sighs of surprise from the Japanese, without success. Instead, the scene turns into an exchange of words with Power making sexual moans in the background. However, it should be noted that this is not the problem of the actress, but of the person who reviewed her work. Do you think we are exaggerating? Why not watch the final result, without headphones and at full volume? After all, don’t you trust the Latin dub?

By the way, before the comment on “it’s a fandub“. No, you can check it by going to the platform and put the episode in Latin Spanish. Perhaps everything would have been different if the actor had heard “Oh!” instead of “Oh!“.

Naturally, the clip hit social media and began to inspire numerous comments, noting:

  • «Why is he crying?».
  • «Power’s voice actress posted her mixed scenes».
  • «Close your eyes and try not to laugh at this.».
  • «Well, another dub that we don’t even know how it was approved».
  • «I love Denji’s voice, but Power’s never ceases to disappoint».
  • «As a Spanish speaker, I think it could be worse».
  • «Well, the dubbers seem to know that this anime is for virgins. A little fan service from the actor doesn’t hurt».
  • «How did the production hear this and allow it?».

Summary for Chain Saw Man

The story takes place in a world where Demons threaten the peace of the people, making them targets for elimination. Denji is a depressed young man who sold some of his organs and works as a lumberjack and devil hunter to pay his late father’s debts. Denji (who is also a demon) has a dog named Pochita, who has a chainsaw and uses it to do his work.

This is explained by the fact that humans can make contracts with demons. After returning home from a job, Yakuza asks Denji to infiltrate a building and kill another demon. However, the plan to assassinate him turned out to be a trap as part of the Yakuza’s deal with the devil, which gained them more power. But Pochita comes to Denji’s aid and bonds with him, becoming half-man, half-demon and possessing Pochita’s chainsaw.
