Visual Quality

Opening. I liked it. The Japanese on the upper left got nommed away (really, the best way I can describe it) and when another person started singing, they switched to a different k-timing style. All in all it was quite suitable for the anime.

Ending. It’s fine, though I’m not sure purple was the best choice.

 

Typesetting.

They only did half the prominent signs. :/

 

Other.

Sponsor screens are a complete waste of time in fansubs. I wish groups would stop using them.

Script Quality

Karaoke.

I didn’t see any problems with the OP/ED script.

 

Main Script.

“Hahaha. I’m laughing because I bet this joke’s hilarious. I may not understand, but LOL!”

Hatsuyuki, please don’t encourage trash like that. Translate your fucking jokes so people can actually understand them.

Because she has cute eyes, she’s harmless. {Fine}

Because she has cute eyes, she has been protecting Mahiro. {Nonsensical}

So let’s turn this into something that’s understandable.

“Yes. You can tell from my cute eyes that I’m harmless too.”

“In fact, I’ve actually been protecting Mahiro-san.”

“Understood. It’s finally time for all-out war.”

“The job might be titled ‘Deity Hunter'”

The original line is akin to saying “The job might be called a ‘lawyer'”, which is all kinds of gibberish.

With great subs comes great responsbility.

What the fuck?

These jokes don’t make any fucking sense. Dammit, Hatsuyuki.  :(

HAHAHA. Lol nope.

Starra says:

Is this show worth watching? It looks somewhat okay, and I’m not keeping up with anything this season.

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, it’s one of the best ones this season.

Beckett says:

Absolutely yes. If you’re a big enough anime nerd to catch at least some of the references this show is completely brilliant. I guess somebody who has only been watching anime for half a year might scratch their head and wonder what the fuck is happening, but for anyone else this show is awesome.

Starra says:

Alright then, I’ll check it out tomorrow. I never really know what to watch, as my tastes in animu are all over the place.

And I’ve been watching anime for about 7 years or so, so I tend to get references. I’m sure they’re not as over the top as Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei’s shout outs were, though.

Take a look at corresponding entries each time you finish an episode; you’ll be surprised at how much is there.

Starra says:

Just had a look at the entry for episode 7. Hahaha oh wow.

I’d say that SZS still has more references (what with scrolling text and all that), but I’m impressed.

I have to watch this show now.

Bananapie says:

I was wondering if there’s supposed to be an ‘if’ between ‘sure’ and ‘purple’ in the following quote: “though I’m not sure purple was the best choice”.

The sentence just looks a bit odd without that ‘if’.

Bananapie says:

Also, shouldn’t there be an ‘an’ before ‘all-out war’ in the following quote: ““Understood. It’s finally time for all-out war.””?

Nevreen says:

No to both. I’m not even sure I could explain why, but the lines are fine as is.

Nevreen says:

After thinking about it for a bit, I think the explanation for this one is that the sentence is expressing doubt, whereas “if” is used for conditional statements. You could change the the sentence to “I don’t think purple was the best choice” or “I doubt purple was the best choice”. “If” is used to express a condition: “if this happens, then that”. There isn’t any kind of condition here, which is why you wouldn’t use “if”.

Nevreen says:

“this one” referring to the “though I’m not sure purple was the best choice” comment. It’s hard to tell with the way replies are set up in WordPress.

corocoro says:

Both are correct as far as I know, but in common speech you usually leave out the ‘if’ and ‘an’.

H_B says:

I guess you’re not going to do review Ahodomo because they are slow and released only two episodes so far?

HeavenlyArmed says:

So basically, the TLC needs to start getting the jokes, and I need to stop derping on the simple stuff. Got it.
