What will they replace "Usuratonkachi" with?

    Do you think they'll make a replacement to Sasuke's token insult to Naruto. It's really unique way of calling someone an idiot. An explanation I once got for it:

    So I wonder if they'll just replace it with something generic like "Fool" or "Idiot", but there are WAY too many lip flaps for that I'd think.

    That's gonna be pretty funny when the character's lips keep flapping another few seconds after he says it then.

    They'll just use idiot and cut out the extra, now unneeded, scenes (or just edit Sasuke's lips so they aren't moving after he finishes saying "idiot" or whatever they choose to replace it with). Trust me on this.

    I get the feeling it will be translated as 'Dunce' rather than idiot or such.
    Don't know why, but I just get that feeling...

    Err, just because there are extra flaps doesn't mean they will not fill them up with some other dialouge -_-; still finding things to complain about ? :D

    What the hell are you talking about? I was one of the few defending the damn dub last week. I just asked a fucking question. Can't I wonder about something or is that not allowed?

    They took the time to add in a replacement for Dattebayo, so clearly they're trying to keep character quirks in check in some form in the english dub. No one uses "Usuratonkachi" in Japan. It is UNIQUE, so I'm just wondering if Viz will try to translate this in some form in the english version.

    Oh I believe you that you stand up for the dub, but why you say this "That's gonna be pretty funny when the character's lips keep flapping another few seconds after he says it then."

    It's like a magical negative thing :D No need to get offensive.

    (Chill guys, no need to pick any fights...)

    They might translate it as "total idiot" or "complete idiot"; that's been used plenty of times in fan translations, and it would allow for more lip flaps. (For example, he could say "the total idiot" or "you total idiot"; six syllables for each, so it'd work.) Or they could just translate it as the usual "idiot" or "dumbass" and add extra dialogue to fit it in. Either way would work.

    "What are you doing, Dead Last??!!"

    I agree with Spectrum, they'll probably use "You complete idiot", or "You total moron", or a variation of the two phrases.

    Idiot seems a bit overused. I like "You total Moron" better.

    I think they'd say "clumsy idiot" to replace it with. I think I remember usuratonkachi being translated that way once so I could see that happening.

    The Elephant King is correct.

    usuratonkachi translates to clumsy idiot, and I'd be more than happy if that is what they use for his trademark insult.

    Awww, I was gonna post clumsy idiot, it almost has as much syllibles as usurakontachi, and it's easy to say, so it's possible they're gonna use clumsy idiot.

    i vouch they should use the word "gimcrack".
    a friend of mine was checking the dictionary while playing Scrabble one day and he randomly found this word and it means "someone who is useless and of no value".

    Lol. That's be pretty funny. Gimcrack, huh. They might not use it in Naruto but I think I'm gonna use that word from now on.
