Visual Quality

Karaoke.

Opening. White’s all right, but it’s the easy mode of karaoke.

Ending. The colors changed and everything, but I wasn’t a big fan of it. The colors in the second screenshot here were the most annoying part. Yes, I get you’re trying to match the sunset, but it’s not good looking in the least.

 

 

Typesetting.

Lots of typesetting with only a few signs missed.

 

Other.

The script goes outside of the border that the show set here, which was a bad choice.

Script Quality

Karaoke.

The opening/ending both made sense, and the English was fine. That’s about the best you can hope for on these things.

 

Main Script.

“I didn’t think you would like playing this kind of part.”

Brilliant pun.

But this “completion” of the pun (later in the episode) didn’t really make sense.

 

Timing Review

Incoming. When “Timing Critique” is added as a category, you’ll know this part is done.

Results.

Watchability: Suitably sugoi.

Timing Grade:

Visual grade: B+

Script grade: A

Overall grade (timing results not factored in): A-

This was a lot better done than the other groups’ releases. Good shit.

We’ll see how UTW-Underwater did later tonight.

“Promise~”
So we’ll see the review tomorrow?

Dark_Sage says:

Bingo.

FalseDawn says:

OMG this review is so biased. You always give Commie such a hard time~

sangofe says:

How is an A tier biased, FalseDawn?

Nevreen says:

I think you need to tune your sarcasm detector.

sangofe says:

Nevreen: I don’t think so. Commie’s gotten lots of C’s and I remember Dark being disappointed in them…

Dark_Sage says:

No, he was being definitely sarcastic. It’s a running joke on this site.

The best course of action for the comments section here is to assume that nobody is being serious.

FalseDawn says:

Oh sangofe, I am disappoint. I thought you knew me better by now! :D
