Default One Piece

Alright I have just resently got into One Piece. Everyone knows Zolo/ Zoro.

The question I have is that in the anime they call him Zoro while in the manga they call him Zolo. Which is his real name?

I want to know if you are a real fan of One Piece so I can come to you for answers to my questions

His real name is Roronoa Zoro for both the original Manga and Anime.

Viz and 4Kids changed his name to Zolo but Funimation left Zoro as it is.

But I suggest you read online scans and watch the subbed version.

The actual volumes will have higher image quality and smoother translations.
Now is a great time to read the actual volumes since they are having a lot
of One Piece volumes come out. Also you can read them anytime without internet.
They are about $10.00 a volume...but hey it's One Piece. It's a must buy.

Scanlations come out quicker and are of course free. The translations are more nit-picky and often ends up with words not being translated at all. For instance
instead of Gum Gum Pistol it would be Gomu Gomu Pistol. If you want the latest
chapters then scanlations aren't bad...but if you want to read One Piece the
way it was meant to be read...buy the actual volumes

Gomu doesn't translate into Gum...

It means rubber.

True. But Gum Gum Pistol sounds catchier than Rubber Rubber Pistol.

The basic idea is that it makes Luffy stretch.

i also noticed in some online translations they changed Luffy to Rufi. its quite strange, the quality of the scans depends on who is translating them.

Who cares if it doesn't sound catchy, their job is to translate them, you either translate it or leave it as it is.

You don't just make up random words like Gum Gum.

Rufi is his proper romaji name, I guess the translators didn't want to change his name to Luffy.

4Kids dub has so many horrible translations.

Zoro is the official name, Zolo was some dub crap.

Lol at Gum Gum, such sad dub phrases.

I think they changed names like Ace into Trace in the 4kids dub, why they did that I have no idea.

Gum Gum is also easier to match in with the lip flap of the dub than Rubber Rubber is. Also it sounds closer to Gomu Gomu too. There's a lot more to
translation and localization than a strict transliteralization.

Would I really care if it was the Rubber Rubber Fruit instead?

Not really.

I just rather read Gum Gum than Gomu Gomu in the English version.

If I want to read the Japanese then I'll read that.

If they want to learn romaji then they should make it in romaji.

I just rather not read in the English version
"I'm Monkey D Rufi. I ate the gomu gomu no mi."

I'm fine with "I'm Monkey D Luffy. I ate the gum gum fruit."
Or even "I'm Monkey D Luffy. I ate the rubber rubber fruit."

Though even though they say gum gum they still call Luffy a rubber man.

Gomu Gomu can mean "Gum Gum", it is not inaccurate, and in addition, 4Kids did not come up with "Gum Gum" first, that was Viz.
