I continue to wonder why localization teams change names, when they already have a perfectly fine name for the language they're localizing for.
Like, Mary's a perfectly fine name in English, no need to change that I don't think. Also where's Gloria's hat?

Gloria's definitely a better name than Yuuri for an English setting though

And you thought the dialect localization for 2DK took some time to get used to.

That was fast. And is this just a oneshot? Because this can easily have a part 2.

Usually it's because they either want to avoid a character being confused as another with the same name (usually from a prior localization change) or because they want the same to maintain a similar mystique to the original when they localize it - Mary isn't as common a name in Japan as it is in English speaking countries but Marnie is less common and still sounds similar (see also Tina to Terra in Final Fantasy 6).

I dunno, I can't ever see that name without reading it as "GLOOOOOOOOOORIIAAA".

At least with Yuuri I can read it normally. Granted that's more me being an idiot than anything.

Scottish Gloria is still the superior Gloria.

I agree, but has the Scottish Trainer meme really taken off in Japan at all?

Hard to say. Much like how there's no direct way to translate Japan's regional dialects directly into English, the JP fans probably don't have any means to present their language in a definitively Scottish manner.

Is the song big bro sang for her really a rap song? Or is it a "rabu song" written in kana which is supposed to mean "love song"? This brings me back a fan sub of YagaKimi first PV for the anime where the very same confusion happened...

Scottish trainer and Marnie are definitely both tops. I really want to see how they work around that

Fortunately, for me anyways, "Scottish Gloria" is not a thing in japanese doujins and fanart, it was funny in the beginning, but I like to understand what I'm reading (I support it if it's with Serena tho).

Fanart-wise, we are already having that flood.

"definitely" huh?
98~99% of the fanart I have seen so far depict Mary as the bottom.

Agreed. Marine is definitely a girl who will do her best, but she is not a top. I've seen a lot of tops in my day and she isn't one of them.

+1 to this.

And Mary definitely seems like the kind of girl that would come out of a town called "Spiketown".
