Visual Quality




For both the OP/ED, the kanji was hardsubbed by the animation studio. Can’t really fault Commie for rolling with it and using the same karaoke for the OP/ED.




Script Quality


No hay problemos aquí, mis amigombres.


Main Script.

Too lengthy. Drop the “Excuse me” part.

I’d like to place my foot your editor’s face. :(

There’s no reason for a comma here. If you want an artificial pause, use an ellipsis.

Should be “shaggy-haired”.


Timing Review

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


Watchability: Definitely watchable.

Timing Grade:

Visual grade: A-

Script grade: A-

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

The few issues I did have with the release were relatively minor. In the end, this is a solid effort for a terrible anime. Good job, Commie.

anon says:

Pretty sure the “Houston, Texas” and “Japan” signs were done by the studio.

Dark_Sage says:

Good catch.

Xythar says:

Johnny Herkz, the name you can trust.

herkz says:

you don’t like the underlined line?

also the song styling is perfect thank you very much

Xythar says:

ø u.

Raggers says:

ø guys, just tell him the diagonal slash is to show it’s not a O.

@Falsedawn, diagonal slashes are put in some fonts to distinguish between capital O and 0 (zero). 8 would have a horizontal slash.

FalseDawn says:

Øhwow, I’ll have to be less subtle next time. I was just pointing out how fail the font is :D

f says:

I’d give your Spanish a F.

Dark_Sage says:

Soy disappointado mi espanol estoy mal.

puddizzle says:

Un molestar.


Dark_Sage says:

Oh wow, all my poor Spanish is making me embarasado. Lo sienta.

Ariel says:

Because I’m that skilled in Spanish:

*”making mi embarasado” has no sense, it’s like “it’s making me pregnant” xD
*”Sienta” is like “sit down”

Correct: “it’s making me avergonzado”, “lo siento”

BTW, good review. I’m following this series ’cause the lol, but you don’t have much of it until ep.3-4

Man, why are you being this terribly subjective? To me, and many other people, this is a magnificent show.

Xythar says:

Dark_Sage being opinionated? Say it ain’t so!

Beckett says:

Dark Sage always hates the good shows of the season while praising shit like Horizon. Get used to it ;).

Drake says:

Don’t hate just because your brain was a tad too small to understand the story behind it.

Beckett says:

Don’t hate just because your brain is so small that you have to desperately search for deep meaning amongst nonsense because you can’t accept that a show you liked sucked. I liked Horizon at first too but as the first season went on it became more and more clear that the writers didn’t have a fucking clue what they were doing and were just making it up as they went along. I expect season 2 to be more of the same.

Drake says:

No, don’t misunderstand, I don’t like the show at all. I actually dislike it. But if you read some of the light novels, you do get a more clear understanding of what is going on.

Beckett says:

Well, it’s hardly the fault of my brain’s size that they decided to leave that shit out of the anime, is it? :P

temp_late says:

I’m looking forward to more salty tears if Dark_Sage does Summer 2012 show previews.

To be honest, it’s also kind of refreshing to see somebody have questionable or bad (according to whom?) taste and be so unashamed of it. Too many people are pansies that need outside validation or are group-thinking anibloggers.

Sapphi says:

I agree with everything temp_late said.

Imako says:

An A- on visuals? I hope you screened all the most poorly-done signs in this ep, because /damn/.

Xythar says:

Damn, we’re being herkzed in reverse.


puddizzle says:

The Reverkz.

Sounds like a great dance move.

herkz says:

Yeah the typesetting is like a B- imo.

But dat styling.

jdp says:

The check will clear on Monday.

jdp says:

Oh by the way this is really a v2 in name only since the “v1” was an April Fool’s joke.

fgghjjkll says:

Need cryptw back.
Dem v10s.

Sapphi says:

‘Das middle school.

Jewdough says:

>terrible show
Oh well, its Dark Sage´s opinion, so…
