  • Bleach is particularly egregious. Only three recurring terms in the dub were translated: shinigami (to Soul Reaper, likely to distance itself from the western conception of the idea, or to differentiate itself from Death Note, which keeps the term shinigami)
Good thought, bad research. The Bleach dub started in '06; Death Note hadn't even aired in Japan yet.
