Dear Commie, get your shit together.
Steins;sub/HorribleSubs is even worse and deserves no review.
Let me just quote UTW for one second. “The team decided when CR made the announcement that we would drop the project if the CR subs were of competent quality; they turned out to be excellent.” This proves what I’ve been saying all along: The people in UTW and Mazui are stupid. Very, very stupid. Kusion, you wanted a mention? Here you go: your nakama need to fix their eyes cuz approving this is something only a blind man would do.
CR’s version is terrible, yes. But I’m reviewing Commie’s version, which is supposed to be a properly-edited version of CR’s script. Let’s see how they do, shall we?
The OP/ED. Card does a great job as usual. When it comes to bearing my children, she will suffice.
There are about ten screenshots that make up this paragraph. I am going to spare you the agony of posting them all and instead transcribe it.
I’ll introduce our staff.
First is Lab Member 001, founder of the lab and Insane Mad Scientist… Myself, Hououin Kyouma!
Lab Member 002, the lab’s lone female member, whose hobby is making cosplay outfits, Shiina Mayuri!
And Lab Member 003, Super Haker Hashida Itaru!
It’s “Hacker”, not “Haker”. Hurr.
There is so much concentrated fail here that I cannot even begin to explain what went wrong. Here, how about I fix it first?
I’ll introduce our staff.
First up is Lab Member 001. He’s the founder of this lab and an insane mad scientist… It’s none other than me, Hououin Kyouma!
Next up is Lab Member 002. She’s the lab’s sole female member. This girl’s hobby is making cosplay outfits. It’s Shiina Mayuri!
And finally, it’s Lab Member 003. He’s the super hacka known as Hashida Itaru!
It’s “Hacker”, not “Hacka”. Hurr.
It’s only us three.
1. This is far more entertaining.
2. This fits the style of a TV announcer, which is what he’s fucking imitating in the show.
3. “Haker” rhymes with “raker”. He pronounces it hacka in the show.
4. This doesn’t fucking fail at English.
Hey Commie, what’s a wagon sale? I know what you think it is, but what is it really? Good luck searching the internet for the answer cuz the term doesn’t exist.
You don’t need “that” because they refer to him like an actual person.
It would be a better use of our time to
Anyways is neither a legitimate word nor is it “net language”. Drop that shit like a dead baby.
You know what we call radio buildings in America? Radio stations. My god. As long as these editors are able to reproduce, there is no hope for the future.
To make this clear, the first picture had the mad scientist as the speaker and the 2nd/3rd had the fat guy as the speaker. Logical progression indicates the third line should be
If it had been, that satellite would have flattened you.
Gosh darnit! Why does everyone have to fudge up when it comes to naughty words?
since we first met.
Hmm… if UTW TL’d it like this and Crunchyroll did too… maybe the disparity’s intentional?
Oh, and I’ll give $5 to anyone who can come up with a logical explanation for why the editors chose to leave in “time cook” that doesn’t involve alcohol or accidents involving in the brain.
This is a microwave, so how about “and then the number of seconds you wish to cook it for”? See? It’s not hard to make lines not suck.
How about a subject? In fact, a lot of lines are missing proper sentence structure in this release. Sometimes it’s justified, but I have a feeling the editors just couldn’t be assed to fix shit.
It hasn’t even been ten minutes
Overall grade: C-
Aethon, you wanted me to be hard? You wanted me to be brutally honest? This is absolute shit. In fact, I have a funny little story for you all. This isn’t even the entirety of the episode. I only started watching after the opening at 10:48. That means, in all likelihood, that you fucked up twice as bad.
Very, very disappoint. :(
