Visual Review

Karaoke.

Opening. Only the OP aired this episode.

The karaoke acts like the first screen here until the line “Disperse” is spoken and then it goes all red and slanted like you see in the second screen. While I did think the “Disperse” part was a nice touch, in such a noise-filled (visually) OP like this one, it was difficult to read their OP translation. I understand they’re trying to match the credit font in the OP, but I’m not sure that was such a good idea.

Rating: Okay.

 

Typesetting.

Yeah, that’s pretty much it. I did think the logo was cool, but that’s not exactly something that’s going to factor into the group’s score. Felt the green sign in the second screen should have been typeset.

Results: Inconclusive.

 

Other.

Wallpaper-worthy when the blus come out.

 

Script Review

Karaoke.

Pretty fucking sure you meant “barbarous”.

 

Main Script.

the. We have all the personnel we need.

You definitely need that fucking article in this sentence.

Nice capitalization consistency.

“The Third King, Suoh Mikoto, is activating his sanctum.”

Commas are seriously not that difficult to understand.

“Weismann levels at 75… 80…” is a better way to reflect that the Weismann levels are increasing. Also, you probably want a space after that comma,dipshits.

There is not one goddamn person who ever starts a conversation about someone else with the line “About Person’sName…”

Beautiful editing.

 

Results

Watchability: Watchable.

Visual grade: C

Script grade: B-

Overall grade: B-

The editor here added multiple mistakes into this release (I count three). Fair warning that this was phoned in. The worst part? The main script is under 200 lines. Most shows have 300-400. Not fucking good at all; this kind of easy script should hardly have any errors.

There are almost certainly better choices for this show, so I can’t recommend this release.

It’s Viz, actually.

Dark_Sage says:

That’s what I get for assuming things based off the HorribleSubs name. Will update.

Daniel says:

Thanks, Anime-Koi, failed… What’s next on your list?

Dark_Sage says:

I wouldn’t say they failed. A group fails when it releases something unwatchable. Could they have improved? Sure. But that’s not enough to condemn their release.

Next on my list is Nutbladder’s Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures. Then I’ll put the poll up.

Daniel says:

Eww, JoJo, do you watch that show, is it even worth watching?

Dark_Sage says:

Eh, I’m not a big fan of it. But I suppose I’ll keep watching it.

You blow, Ioryogi!
