lygerzero0zero says:

Where are the reviews, D_S? D:<

Dark_Sage says:

Later. Ohayocon post then maybe a review. If Saturday con sucks I’ll come back and do reviews.

random says:

I’ll believe it when I see it.

Dark_Sage says:

Wow. I thought I’d be writing it but I got way too drunk. Almost got kicked out of the room. Story later… Maybe. :3

ichihollow says:

you should check out middle tennessee’s anime con. get the email of this post and drop me a line for a free pair of three day passes. I’m not joking or spamming obviously only admins can get the email off the post.

ghjghj says:

ok, i laughed

Ran-ran says:

So, is there no reason why gg doesn’t suck?

anon says:

1. They aren’t SubDesu
2. They aren’t Hadena
3. They aren’t Doki
Ok, I’ve run out of reasons.

TBA says:

Hey! Damn you!

Why do you do dis to me? Aren’t we friends in another group? <_<

someguy says:

Don’t forget Chiki!

Koby says:

Doesn’t mean they don’t suck. It just proves they aren’t quite the bottom of the barrel.

anon-nonsense says:

they arent commie, chihiro, crunchy. but they are useless to me cause they went to 10bit only.

kliqIMB says:


Red says:

gg translates, which is actually better than a lot of fansub groups out there.

wave says:

I admit it, I thought you were going to post a list of reasons, you got me.

Sapphi says:

lol and :<

The handsome stranger with the hairy balls says:

At least they know how to take life with a bit of humor, you faggots.

Anon says:

Is this a troll?


AzureHakua says:

Lol. You got me good.

Takatin says:

Oh D_S, don’t ever change, lol.

Ausdoerrt says:

…From a mile away.

Jesus-Kun says:

lol, for a second there I was going to call you a fag.

bastek says:

Meh, I still like gg.

your mom says:

Whiners is pretty good. But I still think UTW and gg are the best out there.

Actar says:

Wow, no other post has ever made me experience such a plethora of emotions within such a short period of time. Simply brilliant.

w0lf says:

Clicked this link with my friend sitting next to me, but by god did we laugh our asses off.

tantei says:

their releases are fairly good when eightsin translate it for them. like penguindrum for example

Xythar says:

Their releases are fairly good in general, I would say. Dororon Enma-kun had some of the best subs I’d ever seen.

I don’t really understand the hate at all, other than people being buttmad at liberal translations and/or Hidan no Aria.

tantei says:

it’s not because of aria (that show was a joke, and even it’s fans hate it, that show deserved troll subs) it because of the americanization they do to their subs. their editors can’t handle a show with it’s own jargon. for example their bakuman or jellyfish princess subs. also they have inconstent sub qaulity and are kinda the epitome of a speed sub group that does their own work

tantei says:

also it doesn’t help that the group is made up by almost entirely by trolls

Xythar says:

So yeah, buttmad at liberal translations.

Dark_Sage says:

I don’t really hate them, but they don’t have any staff that are top of their game besides 8th and Sindalf. And really, how much value does speedtiming provide when they don’t QC to fix the obvious timing mistakes? Their whole process falls flat on its face when compared to the quality of the group members and culture. True, QCs aren’t necessary when every group member does their job perfectly. But which group can claim that?

The only people who join gg are those who are willing to sacrifice their pride to gain a small measure of satisfaction in having a known group’s name behind them. “Thrust your mouth into this circlejerk and suck it up or leave.” It’s the reason they don’t have any good editors — no editor worth their salt is willing to join that kind of an environment. The only people touching their scripts now are ESL. And yes, they know they don’t have any halfway-decent editors, so they try to make up for it by being as over-the-top as possible. That’ll trick those viewers! If their attempt at trolling Hidan didn’t make you realize that, nothing will. Hidan wasn’t funny trolling, but it may have been able to pass for a pastiche of poor-quality subs if anyone in their group knew what “pastiche” meant.

Another problem is the quality of the “community” they’ve raised around them. Trash begets trash, which was very much shown to me at Ohayocon when Soup and I asked the man who thought Toradora was obscure whose subs he got for Ben-to. “ggkthx” was the oh-so-informed answer.

BTW, I asked koda why Dororon was so good. It’s because they didn’t sub it like they usually do. They gave the script to an editor and saw results 8 hours later. ~_~ That’s the only time they’ve had an A-tier script, for obvious reasons.

The main problem with gg is that they’ve never really done well at anything besides shitting out a script quickly. Their members can’t take pride in their work because there’s nothing TO take pride in. That’s great and all when they don’t have any real competition, but as other groups keep improving and gg stays the same, it will be fun to see them really take hold of the Ayako slot — “fast subs, bad subs”.

brainchild says:

Why should 1% of sub groups control 99% of all downloads? #OccupyNyaaTorrents

puddizzle says:

Explain their KamiMemo release, then.

tantei says:

horrible editing, the translator ended up doing it for UTW instead, which is the one dark recommends
