Reviews. Now with a “Watchability” rating for those who don’t care about kara/typesetting/good English.
Oh, and Commie did a bang-up job here.
File size: 491 MB (Yes, really.)
Release format: MKV
Japanesiness: None, and there damn well shouldn’t be any. They make great effort in the anime to forgo honorifics and say “Yes” instead of “Hai”. Additionally, the setting is in Europe so this should all be pretty Anglified anyway.
Fun fact: Whine-subs was originally planning to sub this simply so we’d have something to do this season. But we determined that even if we had a better release, due to the quality of the work that Doki/Commie will do on this show, it would be a waste of time for us to enter our hats into the ring. Oversubbing isn’t a good thing.
Karaoke. Plain, dull.
Uhh, try “Pop-up Book”. You know, the type of book which this is episode is about. ._.
Even if a person’s name ends in an “s”, to properly reflect ownership, you still use an apostrophe followed by an “s”; NOT just an apostrophe. You use the apostrophe alone when you have a plural word that ends in an “s”.
There is absolutely no need for ellipses here.
More like The World in the Gourd. You don’t need to capitalize the second “the”. I wish this was just a mistake, but they did this twice.
Each other = for two people
One another = for three or more people
As there are more than two humans in the world, use “one another”.
this book dates to the early 18th century.
Watchability: Quite watchable. Relatively few errors that are mostly insignificant. The fanciful language may be difficult for those inexperienced with the English language.
Overall grade: B+
Commie did a great job.
