Jonathan's "Even Speedwagon is afraid" line in Japanese

Postby Kira Kira » Thu Jun 23, 2016 11:01 am

Because I haven't been able to find it anywhere, I was wondering what Jonathan says about Speedwagon being afraid of the vampire Dio in the original Japanese version of the manga?

"It terrifies Speedwagon!!" which by itself sticks out a little as completely unnecessary narration.
Might've been the reason why I-O tweaked the line a little. Worked out though.

I think the point is that even Speedwagon, a hardened criminal is terrified by the sight of Vampire Dio.

Sure it's a little melodramatic, but that's part of the charm of Phantom Blood IMO.

Thanks! :D

Yeah, I love that line for how narmy it is, though.
