These would be excellent subs if these kids knew what the fuck a clause is.

Yeah, the karaoke is quite lacking.


Sense make this does not.

Fail @ caps

Can a shore be on a city? It makes more sense to have it “by” the city. If I’m wrong about this, lemme know.

These are the only problems I could find. Wait, no. I’m lying. There were like 15 different problems with the commas in this release. I obviously didn’t bother screencapping them all. No need to waste your time.

Dialogue: 0,0:00:14.30,0:00:18.37,Default,,0000,0000,0000,,Anyone bitten by the Nundead, becomes one of them.{The people bitten by the undead all became one of them.} {The people bitten by “them” all become one of them.}

Dialogue: 0,0:01:21.34,0:01:24.92,Default,,0000,0000,0000,,we were lucky enough to find Na boat, and escape to the sea.

Dialogue: 0,0:06:42.71,0:06:46.16,Default,,0000,0000,0000,,I searched the entire Nisland, there’s nothing.

Dialogue: 0,0:06:46.72,0:06:49.81,Default,,0000,0000,0000,,But at least there’s dry Nwood{leaves} so we can build a fire.

Dialogue: 0,0:07:38.33,0:07:41.85,Default,,0000,0000,0000,,It’s dangerous if it’s raw, Nit has to be cooked thoroughly.

Dialogue: 0,0:07:43.27,0:07:46.13,Default,,0000,0000,0000,,It’s all thanks to Hirano, Nwe should thank him properly.

Okay, I could continue, but you get the general idea. And yes, it’s super annoying.

But I do find it amusing how many comments this script has. (The notes in {} that don’t appear in the subs, but you can read them if you’re just looking at the script in a .ass file)


Overall grade: C+

If you can handle messy comma usage, there’s very little wrong with this release. Overall, I think it’s a better release than IB’s.

I’m the guilty comma-offender.

Not sure why you think “our world finally opened the closing credits.” doesn’t make sense though. Even an end, has a beginning. We could’ve just as well gone with “the end of our word finally begun.” or sth ofc, but I liked opening the closing credits as it was more poetic.

As for the comments in {}, yeah, I’m far too lazy to remove them :P You should see some of the comments I add when I’m feeling a bit loopy ^_^ DD06 is a hive of perversion – though I wasn’t the only contributor to that.

Thanks Dark.

Well, it was poetic, but I thought that the original line worked better. “The beginning of the end” or something like that.

I know what you mean about the comments. I never bother cleaning up my scripts cuz who the fuck’s gonna read them?

<3 ya too Fire-chan.

WsE says:

What did I say about that line, Fibi? What did I say?!

I’m as much responsible with the commas as anyone else, I such at those. Q_Q

Ty Dark_Sage ^_^

Also, apparently I can’t spell “suck” :(
