    One Piece 414 - The "Rouga" Pun

    Ehh... I'm so damn stuck on this pun. In the end I decided NOT to translate it, but I still have to write translation notes. The "rouga" pun is pretty much the primary literary device of the entire chapter, so there's no single page I can refer you to. It would be nice if someone could read through the entire chapter (raw), and think about the "rouga" pun for a second.

    I know what it means, but I have no idea how I'm supposed to explain this in my notes. Explanation help required ^_^

    This is the reason why my 414 translation has been sitting in Rush HQ for a long time, I'll make it public once this is cleared up.

    I don't know if the joke can really be translated considering it's being inserted into a basic piece of grammar (お前の蹴りなど効かんと言っと狼牙! and そんなわけねぇだ狼牙!among others).

    Perhaps some sort of wolf-like howling sound inserted into their speech when that line shows up? Other than that it's difficult to insert "wolf fang" into a sentence without people getting confused (like when the script came out and poor Ocean among others had to explain to people that it was just a simple joke).

    Who's the moderator of this section? He's doing a lousy job.
    Serizawa: But it's really heartwarming to see such good guys - perhaps not as good as we wanted, translation-wise, but their hearts are already grade A
