I wonder how well Chiki did with their namesake…

Just kidding. I knew going into this that it would be shit.

Note: Apparently they released a v2 hours before I published this review. I compared the scripts and all but two of the faults remain. The result is still an F.

File size: 268 MB

Release format: MKV

Japanesiness: Honorifics. Japanese name order. Tons of words untranslated like “Oujou-sama”

Karaoke. It’s actually good. I bet they just pulled the scripts for it off the ‘nets. But still…

Typesetting.

Why is “Armlock” capitalized?

Japanese is a superior language. Word-for-word translations for the win!

TL note: He means “A bit more and I’d meet Dad in the afterlife.”

Not quite.

Capitalize “Mom” here. Also, your second “mom” is redundant, so replace it with “she”. Also, drop the “it seems” and put in “she said”.

Good gods. Start with one change and you’re obligated to make another. This is like the counterpart to If You Give a Mouse a CookieIf You Fix a Moron’s English.

Things can’t be envious. They can, however, be enviable.

Hahahahahahhahahahahahahahaha

No. Not even close. Incomprehensibly stupid. Thank god I watched Ayako’s release first or I’d have no clue what these shitsubs were saying.

“I wish to see the flowers.” ->”I need to use the restroom.”

Exclamation marks do not suffice as substitutes for question marks.

Why do you do this to me, Chiki?

Chiki: Quality English

others’

Yeah, at this point I’m quite aware that these fixes are likely going way over the heads of Chiki’s staff.

*sigh*

This isn’t even close to resembling spoken English.

about. care less about.

If you needed any more evidence to avoid this group…

I don’t know what’s going on here anymore. Chiki is so bad that they actually managed to make me hate what I was watching.

If you shock a mouse whenever it attempts to leave a cage, then it will eventually stop trying to leave the cage, no matter what. That’s called “learned helplessness”. With Chiki’s subs, I almost feel that they’re psychologists attempting to demonstrate something along the lines of “learned stupidity”.

Would I rather be castrated than watch these subs?

Yes.

I don’t understand anything in this release.

Stop it, indeed. Fuck you, Chiki. Fuck you to hell.

 

Overall grade: F

Like the last Chiki release, I had so much content for this review that I had to throw out errors that would be condemnable in any other release. Avoid them and save yourself the trouble. The subs aren’t “so bad they’re funny” like in F- releases. They’re just so bad they’re bad. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

“We took our time and put alot of tender loving care into this. Please enjoy it.”

That’s what they state on their site.

The timing was hilariously bad as well. The very fucking first line in the script bled to hell.

I wonder why many people make this stupid mistake :
writing “you’re” as “your” and vice versa
*sigh*
