I'm just wondering if anyone knows what was actually being said in a certain infamous moment from GMK. You probably know it:
"Good luck, everyone!" "Yeah, good luck! You're all gonna die!"
Or something like that. The R2 subs I've found don't translate the man's dialogue at all, and have the woman saying, "He said, 'Good luck everyone'!"
I've tried to translate it myself and think it's something along the lines of, "It's gonna be okay!" "Yeah, we'll get through this!" but I might be way off still and it's driving me nuts.
The reason the man's dialogue is not translated is because he's speaking Chinese, not Japanese. The lady that's with him is translating to the soldiers driving by what he's shouting out to them. The scene was supposed to be director Shusuke Kaneko showing how everyone is rallying and supporting the brave soldiers going off to heroically fight Godzilla despite the odds against them, and even someone from a country not so friendly to Japan is cheering them on. The English dub completely turns the scene around from cheering the soldiers on to making a joke out of it.
