I fapped too much to this show.

Release format: MKV (236 MB, 10-bit)

Japanesiness: Honorifics. Japanese name order. “Nee-san” used.

Group website: https://papakiki.wordpress.com/

8thsin’s translation critique: N/A

Ji-hi’s screenshot comparisons: N/A

 

Karaoke.

 

Ending. No opening this episode.

I think the English parts (screenshot 2) of the ED highlight the problems with the main karaoke pretty well. They’re lean, with only two colors (the pink and the k-timing darker pink), but in the main karaoke, you’ve got the main color, its white outline, and then a darker main color as the border. It’s just too much and leaves a “thick” feeling. Unfortunately, “thick” doesn’t fit a peppy J-pop song like this one.

 

Typesetting.

Appeared so quickly I really didn’t expect it to get typeset.

Oh, that explains the group name.

Not really necessary since he essentially reads off the phone for the next minute, but it would’ve been a nice touch.

 

Script.

In this case “daddy” is not a name but a title. Easy way to tell which it is — replace “Daddy” with the person’s name and see if it still works.

“Listen to your Fredrick.” sounds like shit, so it should be “daddy” uncapitalized in this case.

In these cases, to avoid making lines read like shit, you gotta prioritize your comma placement. The comma before Yuuta is most important, so just worry about that one and leave the other (which is optional anyway) off.

“I’ll talk to you later then, Yuuta.”

This is much better because it doesn’t cause you to stagger through the line as you read it.

 

Watchability: Quite watchable.

Overall grade: A-

This is a damn good release from a relatively unknown group.

Excellent, been wondering what groups were doing this one, glad to see there is at least one that doesn’t consist wholly of morons.

Sutai says:

Well, glad you {i1}GotFun{i0} while watching, if you know what I mean.

Sutai says:

You didn’t screenshot the sign I was more proud of, the one at 00:06, meanie.

B1 says:

Thanks for the review. I wouldn’t have picked this group’s version up without it.

“I’ll talk to you later then, Yuuta.”

If it’s a conclusion to a dialogue, maybe –

“Then, I’ll talk with you later, Yuuta”.

Also, “with” engages; “to” is one sided and more colloquial.
If it’s more declarative or attention getting,

“Yuuka, I’ll talk with/to you later”.

The placement of the name emphasises the weight of verb.
This might be a better fit in light of the facial expression
of the character spoken to.

Cool site – make you think a bit about what your brain does
automatically to correct some TL errors while watching subs.

Where do you get that “it” should not be capitalized in a title? I did a little research (for as much as you can trust what you read online, of course) and found nothing that says pronouns should not be capitalized. In fact, when pronouns were mentioned at all, every reference said that they SHOULD be capitalized, which is how I learned it as well.

Dark_Sage says:

Hm, I didn’t actually check with any sources. I assumed that since it was two letters it needed to be lowercase. I’m wrong. Thanks for pointing that out.

The first three typesetting screenshot would be:

1. Tama University of Literature.
The left and right university sign were the same, so it’s misleading to break it into 2 separate phrase. Makes people who don’t read kanji think they are two different phrase. I bet even people who don’t read kanji should be able to tell you that those are the same.
Also, Arts and Literature are not the same.

2. The first and second kanji line should be translated as:
Sightseeing Club
New Student Get Together

I don’t know how they come up with Roadway Observation Research Institute. They just made that up to match their group name.

3. Again, the door sign reads: “Sightseeing Club”.

I do like the karaoke though. And IIRC, the script were CR-edit.

nINJAkECIL says:

After reading Hatsuyuki review, I facepalmed myself. lol.

Too much relied on CR script, I think.

Sutai says:

Read before whining, we know what we’re doing.
And I wanted to put the “For the Arts” in the right side, and YES, people who can’t read kanji CAN see that it’s the same kanji on both sides, like you did.

nINJAkECIL says:

Apologies.
My mistake. Won’t happen again.

HeavenlyArmed says:

Yeah, that’s a mistake I won’t be making again any time soon…
