So they fixed the title to Dad of Light in English? Still sounds weird...but admittedly not nearly as weird as Daddy of Light.

Series is super cute and low key. Pretty good for the premise it sets up. Quality jokes and doesn't get too over the top.

Nice to recognize the prime minister from Shin Godzilla bonding with his son.

"Father of Light" seems to be the obvious choice here, but even on the second swing, they miss.
Pretty much.

Damn shame. I would've binged Daddy of Light just to say I did. Dad doesn't have the same ring.

are you guys really trying to push "father" as if a serial commercial for ff14 demands formality

Oh, cool to see that released globally. Wonder if it's actually any good though?

They should've kept it as Daddy of Light. Right now it's still Engrishy, but not Engrishy enough to get people to click for fun.

I had no idea this was even a thing.

Dad, daddy, father...So torn. First two sound stupidly ridiculous, and Father sounds just right. I can't choose.

I've already seen the first 3 episodes in Japanese, and its great in my opinion! Show is filled with heart, albeit a bit episodic. Hope they don't change it around much, and that all seven episodes are fun to watch for most.
