Far and away better than Chiki.

File size: 190 MB (360p MKV), 148 MB (480p MKV), 274 MB (720p MKV)

Japanesiness: Honorifics. Character catchphrases that make them unique, like ending sentences with “-sa”, are preserved.

Karaoke: None. This is HorribleSubs.


More like “T-The president of the student council!”

Call him Misty Knight. Why? In the two other times his name appears in this episode, that’s what he’s called. Be consistent.


Watchability: Quite watchable.

Overall grade: B+

Well, whoever worked on this script seemed to have a lot of fun with it. You have cool words all over the place (who doesn’t love ‘smoosh’?), idioms galore, and all-around nice phrasing. Karaoke’s non-existent and the typesetting sucks, but you know what you’re getting when you download HorribleSubs.

Honestly, you’d have to be retarded to get Chiki’s version over HorribleSubs’s. And I don’t mean this in a “haha, I’m joking with you way”. I mean you’d seriously have to be mentally retarded to prefer Chiki’s version in any way, shape, or form.

320p is NicoNico Rip, 480p y 720p are CrunchyRoll Rip, diferent translations, just saying. Anyway, whatever thing is better than Chiki. LOL.

Dark_Sage says:

Ah, that explains it. Thanks, Nyara<3

Question: Shouldn’t Student Council be capitalized?

And a second question, shouldn’t President be capitalized as well? Or would it only be capitalized if the sentence was “…Student Council President…” Or, etc. You get the point.

Dark_Sage says:

It’s certainly my preference for both entities to be capitalized. I would definitely do that were these my subs. “President” is actually relatively mired in conspiracy. Apparently, it can go either way.

Student council is something that I think there is also leeway on, but now I’m second guessing myself. Hold on, I’ll go look this up.

Edit: I’m seeing a lot of “student council” in lowercase for my results on Google. I honestly don’t understand why it’s lowercase, but for some fucked-up reason it’s commonplace. I’ll do more research when I’m not about to pass out onto my bed.

Klownzie says:

‘Rule: When the appears in front of the job title, do not capitalize’

‘The first letters of formal titles of organizations are normally capitalized, except for articles such as the, and of’

Either way is fine. Though Student Council being capitalized seems better.

Onion says:

My google search turned up just as many lowercase as uppercase results. Still, it’s my preference to make it capitalized as well, so I shall keep doing so.

MotsuCQ says:

>> Call him Misty Knight.
Sounds like she says “Mystic”, especially with Aoi’s “Misty Knight-sama!” as a comparison ~20 seconds earlier.

sv says:

Horrubke subs don’t translate themselfs it’s only rip from CrunchyRoll So there is no point in criticqe exept rip q in my opinion.
