Conan Anime Erases Japan for South Korea

Literally! See, there’s localization, and then, there’s localization.

Earlier this year, the anime feature Detective Conan: Sunflowers of Inferno hit Japanese movie theaters. The movie centers around a Van Gogh painting that was believed to have been destroyed during a U.S. bombing raid during the Second World War. (You can read the full plot here.)

The movie was released in South Korea this past summer, and it was changed considerably. The biggest change was, basically, erasing almost all references to Japan, including it as the movie’s setting.

The story is too old to be commented.
