This is how a Persona script should be done, but maybe Commie should look into hiring a typesetter.

Release format: MKV (10-bit, 229 MB)

Japanesiness: No honorifics.

Chapters: Included, but they weren’t done properly.

 

Karaoke.

Opening. Dare I say this is about as good as it can get? The karaoke is matched to the credits. The song’s in English too, so even those who don’t like Commie’s focus on English-only karaoke shouldn’t have a problem here.

Ending. Smart move matching the karaoke to the credits.

 

Typesetting.

 

Script.

“Next, we’ll cover the case on everyone’s mind: Ms. Yamano’s murder.”

Also, this is a really smart way to avoid the dreaded three-liners.

outweighs, not outweights. I hope this was actually a typo and there isn’t someone on Commie’s staff who actually thinks “outweights” is a word.

 

Watchability: Quite watchable.

Overall grade: B+

Ignore the typesetting and this is an A-tier release. I just find it surprising that a group with members who clearly enjoyed the games (you can tell it from the way the script is written — it just feels so much more like the games than other releases like Hats-CTSS) couldn’t be bothered to take care of the typesetting.

You’re right, they should definitely look into HIRING a typesetter. Because that’s how fansubs work.

Dark_Sage says:

That’s the terminology we use in fansubbing, even though there’s no exchange of money or anything involved. By the same token we can also “fire” people. “Recruit” and “kick out” may also be used, but the phrasing I used was not incorrect.

SuperNub says:

Also, Japanese kara + honorifics would be cool.

But it’s commie, they’ve disgraced their families by subbing a japanese show.

Since I was late in starting this series I watched it from Ruri (who are slow as hell right now). Imo their typesetting is the best for this series and their script seems to be fine too…

Dark_Sage says:

I like Ruri (hell, I used to be in the previous iterations of the group), but they’ve only managed 2 episodes in the same time that Commie managed 12. At this point, I don’t think they’re going to finish the series. And even if they do, it will be irrelevant to all but the most dedicated Ruri fanboys.

Good subs they may be, but there is absolutely no way they’d be worth waiting for over Commie’s at this point.

so who to choose then ? : O did commie done fine job in all of persona 4 eps?

twilightL says:

Can someone seed the torrent for this please? I’ll ask on Commie’s forums too if I can but I figure the more places I ask the more likely it’ll be that someone will answer, and it’s been sitting at 0% for like four days now.

Black Shads says:

Just try the batch

twilightL says:

I am. No one’s seeding it. That’s my problem.

moozooh says:

You might want to check Hi10anime or some other re-encoding group if you don’t have any qualms about it. They probably use Commie’s subs anyway.

Dark_Sage says:

Try XDCC?

twilightL says:

Doesn’t have it, I checked. They only have recent stuff in XDCC.
