I don’t have many negative things to say about these subs.

Release format: MKV (457 MB, 10-bit), AVI (235 MB), MKV (529 MB, 8-bit)

Japanesiness: Japanese name order. No honorifics.

Disclaimer: I did edit episode 1 for this group, but I was like “lol find someone else” afterward. Haven’t had any interaction with the series since.



Opening. Color/font matches the credits and the whole thing plays out like an older-style karaoke, which is suitabl for the kinda show AGE is.

Closing. Again, the font/color choice matches the credits font sufficiently well.



Yeah, it’s fine.



A bit redundant/confusing. Does the “as well” refer to his “father” or his “mother and father”? It’s not clear. Let’s just make it easier.

“You need to live for the sake of both your parents.” (The “both” in there is intended to lengthen the line as well as convey the original expression which brought attention to both the mother and father.)

“attitude control” sounds like a prep school rap group. Personally, I prefer Knickers With Attitude, but I wouldn’t mind giving these guys a try.


Watchability: Quite watchable.

Overall grade: A-

Excellent karaoke, good typesetting, and a quality script all add up to a great package. I may be biased because of the [sage] tag, but you’d be hard-pressed to be disappointed with this release.

I’ll be checking out AG’s release later, but they have tough competition here.

I read it as “Niggers With Attitude”.

… :|

Dark_Sage says:

It was indeed a reference to the NWA.

Amaranthea says:

Well, NWA is a real group. Knickers was a play on the whole prep school rap group thing.

uSalt2 says:

Yes, this kinda karaoke was quite suitabl. However, why do groups also include romaji karaok?

Progeusz says:

How are you supposed to sing WITHOUT romaji?

uSalt2 says:

…okay. I guess that means romaji karaoke is an extra that fansub groups include.

kyonyUU says:

romaji was included because fuck you.

uSalt2 says:

What’s your problem? I only asked why groups include romaji karaoke.

kyonyUU says:

I have no problems. Only probrems. I see that you have some probrems too. Might I suggest getting some probrem-medicine? Then you can fix your probrems and start working on your problems.

uSalt2 says:

…What? What are probrems?

uSalt2 says:

“However, why do groups also include romaji karaok? [sic]”
I don’t see how I was being an asshole in that sentence…

uSalt2 says:

The “suitabl” error and the “kinda” error is still there…

Kuroiryuu says:

Attitude: the position of an aircraft or spacecraft determined by the relationship between its axes and a reference datum (as the horizon or a particular star)
Ya know, just thought I’d point that out for everyone.
Some people might think it should be altitude or something, but attitude is completely correct here.
Also, I’d pop a comma into that line.
“If we pull too hard, we’ll lose attitude control.”

Dark_Sage says:

My bad. :X
