I like WhyNot because I usually have very little to complain about with their subs. Except for their stupid fucking karaoke.
Release Format: MKV (220 MB)
Japanesiness: No honorifics.
Font: Not so great. Why so small?
Very arbitrary font/color choice.
Not great, but it works.
The OP. Just look at this shit.
The ED. Not rainbow’d up. Thank god for small miracles.
Self-Proclaimed. “Self-Claimed” is not an actual term.
And the now kinda cuts into the ending punctuation. Easily solvable if you put the exclamation marks in italics too.
… Wait, that’s all I’m gonna complain about? Yup.
Watchability: Quite watchable.
Overall Grade: B+
This is a difficult one. How do I decide which weight to give to the script and to the karaoke/typesetting? This is an A- if you look at it one way and a B+ if you look at it another. The typesetting is average but complete and the karaoke is half-shit, half-meh. But the script is great. In my efforts to strike a suitable balance between the various facets that make up a fansubbing release, I’m going to lean toward weighting the aesthetic qualities of the release a bit higher than I have in the past, ergo the B+.
Regardless of whatever arbitrary grade I gave them, I really liked what I saw and I could see myself recommending their release over a group with a few more script errors but prettier aesthetics. Too bad the show’s so shit, though.
