Visual Quality

Karaoke.

Opening.

Ending.

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.

 

Typesetting.

ALL CAPS LOCK FTW

Script Quality

Karaoke.

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.

Results.

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.

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

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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

    • 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.
