SubDesu, please stop subbing.

File size: 265 MB (MKV), 149 MB (AVI)

Japanesiness: I don’t really remember. They probably had honorifics.

Karaoke: None. SubDesu can hardly translate spoken Japanese. You can’t expect them to be able to handle a song.

Chapters: None. It only takes a couple minutes to do, but they can’t manage it.

Note: I apologize in advance. I hated these subs so much that I really didn’t document all their failings. Even commenting on each of the pictures is making me get PTSD from the show, so I’m cutting the comments in this review to a minimum. Enjoy.

Typesetting. Yes, that does say “Chifusa Estranges!”

A few too many exclamation marks there, friends.

You know what else is a must? Someone on your staff that can speak English. I know, I know. I’m speaking crazy talk here. But trust me, it just may come in handy someday!

I’m not sure anyone knows what they’re trying to say here. SubDesu: Master of Subtitling Mysteries.

Jesus. These guys are more starved for editors than a hooker is for crack.

I’ll go crazy if I read your subs for a long time.

What a sentence.



“Haha, we should capitalize Samurai because Samurais are cool and Japanese and capitalized words are cool and Japanese too! Haha!”

Because four exclamation marks wasn’t enough. SubDesu: breaking the boundaries of fail.

Sure is Speed Racer in here.


Watchability: Not really watchable. They don’t properly explain what’s going on and it’s clear the subs were just Google translated. Random words and bad English mean you won’t understand the subs. In addition, the anime itself is censored to hell and back so you might not be able to understand the context of the script, leading to confusion about the show.

Overall grade: F

SubDesu, you’ve been pissing all over the English language for a while now. It’s time to slit your wrists and let the fail bleed out.

In all seriousness, SubDesu is actually looking for editors to help them out, which is a good quality to have (at least they know they’re shit). If you’re reading this site and haven’t edited before, but think you’re good at English, you might wanna cut your teeth on a shitty group like them. If you can make them good, you can make anyone good. Just a suggestion.

Horo says:

Hiryuu says they’ll start it at some point, if the AT-X airing is less censored.

Dark_Sage says:

Thank goodness. I was thinking of forcing card into TLing it if no other groups picked it up. Boy, would that have ended poorly.

Imperial_Neko says:

Hopefully it is, but I think they haven’t shown uncensored or less censored anime for a while.

Imperial_Neko says:

Yes I saw that like 30 minutes or so after I posted that.

kazukifafner says:

To be fair, no one was reading the subtitles when they watched this show `3`

Imperial_Neko says:

Well since what they subbed was censored so much the censors should be blinded to death, there was nothing to really watch was there?

Hells_Finest says:

This anime scares me off… :breast-slicing

This anime sure is something that nXXgXr-leader called DA likes… Sasuga~

Andromeda says:

“(at least they know they’re shit)” lmaooooo

I hope they don’t stop subbing because otherwise we’ll miss out on these amazing reviews

Servs says:

We should just have a fansub group that works on old SubDesu releases. They would never be short of work.

CowsGoMoo says:

“I’m jealous… of these breast.”

I can’t help it, it’s just so hilarious. I read this review almost every day, it’s brilliant.

Buffaloman says:

Wow.. I ‘m glad I’m not the only one who cringes as subDESU’s subs. Watching Qwaser and Qwaser II was so painful… I still have nightmares.

Poster says:

Subdesu’s quality matches the quality of the shows they sub. They deserve each other.

Rick Rollington says:

Wasn’t this meant to be a joint with Chiki-Subs?

Is there anything worse than an F if that was the case?
