I would like to watch anime with more direct translation. What I mean by this is, word for word, there exact meaning (or closest approximation). With the exact same sentence structure as it is in Japanese. I believe this may help capture the original meaning of the dialog while also helping those trying to learn Japanese.

Do anime like this already exist?
Do you think this would be a good idea?

tldr; I'd like to see a more direct translation over localization.

Hey, i've heard of this idea before
New American Standard bible. A word for word translation. That can work.

Of cource, i'm just saying that it can work, but i can't help you. I never learned japanese.

I do think it's a great idea. It can greatly improve the story of whatever anime/ manga. Stuff that gets seen and understood by the japs and flies over americans heads can be understood by both. Somtimes powerful words in japanese can be muddled down in regular english translations.
