All right, time for some motherfucking status updates.

So you may have noticed that I haven’t really done a damn thing these past couple weeks. Either in terms of the ~3 fansub reviews for random groups in Spring 2011 or all those TL parties I promised.

Well, too fucking bad. All that shit’s dropped. I have a full-time job and I sure as shit ain’t gonna pander to y’all who liked the shitty Spring 2011 season. Let’s face it, that season sucked dick. Isn’t worth my time at this point.

So here’s my fucking agenda:

Creepy guy who always asks me to do reviews of Pokemon:

Fuck off. I don’t have time for your shit.

Respect for fansubbers:

Dropping that shit to 0. I despise you all. Don’t like my analyses? Don’t like my bitter tone? Don’t like that I’m smarter than you? I don’t care. Deal with it.

Ji-hi:

Ryko said he was quitting, which makes us the only game in town now. If you want something in that boring-ass old style where you get to make believe you know shit about fansub quality, go to some other fuckoff’s site. I’m sure some 4chan jizzstain will make a carbon copy of it sometime soon. There’s a reason why fansub groups always linked to ji-hi to try and prove why their group was the best and it’s not because ji-hi was doing it right.

Timing:

Unfortunately, my dick’s stuck in the salaryman’s dilemma: live the life of a content human being or slave away for a shitty company to make a few bucks. I’m kinda focused on getting the bills paid right now, so I can only bring up posts on weekends/weeknights (US Time).

Clean-up:

The site’s sections need to be fucking fixed. The information is broken and worthless ATM.

Second chances:

No more. You get one review and one TL Party (TL Party subject to time restrictions — no slowfags, basically). You’re basically being evaluated twice, so be grateful. Don’t like it? Don’t fuck up your releases. I’m tired of all these worthless groups filled with useless members that can’t even manage a simple opening karaoke. You know why groups don’t have OP/ED karaoke? It’s not because they’re focused on getting you anime faster; it’s because their TLs are so shit that they can’t actually understand Japanese. I’m not fucking with you. Most TLs can’t even translate these days without a script all laid out nicely for them. Google Translate is actually better than most translators.

New season:

I’m on it like white on asian. Check back tomorrow; it’ll be glorious.

Or, it’s because karaoke is and always was retarded shit.

Dark_Sage says:

OP/ED, typesetting, non-yellow fonts… the list could go on and on about what people find beneficial in fansubs that isn’t really necessary. But karaoke is definitely desired by a significant amount of people that it’s worthy of inclusion in a group’s releases.

Weeaboos. I don’t cater to weeaboos. It’s pointless screen clutter with little redeeming value other than aesthetic appeal.

kyonyUU says:

Cuz anime is totally not about the aesthetic appeal…

KZ says:

Bullshit. How many ‘aesthetic’ people do you think watch anime?

Some OP/ED are good. Face it. And if you think they all suck, then i’d really hate to say it, but you have shit taste. Bull shit taste.

jdp says:

Yes, I’M the one with shit taste for not wanting a bunch of rainbow/particle/syllable color effect bullshit cluttering the screen.

Yeah, no. I’d much rather enjoy the art that paid professionals made in the video than see some stupid effect applied to text by some stupid idiot that thinks karaoke is still “in” or “cool” hogging the screen.

“I’d much rather enjoy the art that paid professionals made in the video than see some stupid effect applied to text”

So typesetting shouldn’t exist?

Dark_Sage says:

I think I misrepresented my position a bit. I’m also talking about groups that lack ANY translation for the opening/ending music at all. Karaoke be damned, at least a little effort should be put into making the song understandable for us English speakers, even if that only results in a single line of English text at the bottom of the screen.

random says:

And you know what’s worse than those groups that don’t even include OP/ED translations: those retarded groups that hardsub karaoke. Seriously why do they think this is a good idea?

Dark_Sage says:

Why is that a big deal? It allows for prettier, less laggy kara in exchange for not being able to watch the OP/ED semi-clean.

NakkiNyan says:

Because half the kara looks like shit to begin with and so I edit it so it does not look like rainbow puke. I am sure some of the kara you complained about was “pretty” to the creator.

random says:

Because the majority of karaoke looks like shit. Hardsubbing it means that I can’t even turn it off.

And in my opinion over-the-top rainbow karaoke all over my screen doesn’t look pretty.

Raph95 says:

gg does great job on romaji. For fucks sake why would I need karaoke? Romaji is enough, I can fucking hear when they are saying which syllable. It should just be made so it fits the OP/ED and is nice to eye.

And fuck hardsubbing.

amen665 says:

then your gonna love Shini-subs Sacred 7 op.

hurp says:

I always watch the OP and ED with subs turned off apart from on some releases. Hardsubbing means that I can’t. Commie do it right in their recent Natsume and Usagi Drop. Lyrics should be fucking unintrusive. Doki style giant karaoke’d romaji and kanji all over the fucking place (even during INSERT SONGS) just pisses me off to no end, but at least they softsub it. Chihiro style giant HARDSUBBED karaoke’d romaji and kanji all over the fucking place is disgusting.

Holo says:

imas is a series about SONGS.

>disliking kara in a series about songs, wtf is this world coming to

I’ve even provided a no kara sub track for faggots like you, so use it and stop whining.

LunaJoker says:

“Let’s face it, that season sucked dick.”

At least Usagi Drop was good.

KZ says:

Read the Manga. Much better. They stopped it too early. Unless they make an s2

Puff-kun says:

Buy the dvd/blu-ray and help make s2 a reality bro.

Nyara♥ says:

S2 of Usagi Drop? Probably never, why? The ending of the manga (I like it, but all the last part can’t be broadcasted on TV in Japan).

Anyway, will be have some extra episodes with the BD’s. Usagi Drop is a good show, but nothing incredible, use your money in something better.

LunaJoker says:

It was good indeed!

Nyara♥ says:

I am ok with all this.

Mysterious Y says:

Y’know D_S, you’re an arrogant dick, but you can be pretty damn funny at times. Rock on man, rock on.

wakuwaku says:

dumb amerikkan continuing to be dumb…sigh

FalseDawn says:

You had respect for fansubbers? Oh wow.
