Recently read a review of the game (here) and it turns out this show does have a plot. Just hard to derive that without knowing what the fuck’s going on already.
Oh, and this show gets slightly better when you realize

Opening. Easy mode. (But the sparkle/star KFX was pretty nice.)
Ending. Easy mode.
I’d have an opinion, but that’d involve me spending more time on this show than I care to.
This is a terrible font to use. Goddamn.
I took advantage of you while we were dating to open doors for you.
In another example of me taking advantage of you, I also made you pancakes one morning.
I’m such a horrible person, please forgive me.
Expert scriptwriting, Hybrid.
What’s impossible? (Yes, this is all one “sentence”.)
“So, ‘kick start’ and ‘kick off’ have incredibly similar meanings.”
“So why not combine the two into one phrase?”
No, Hybrid. Not brilliant.
Who doesn’t need Rush things? No excuse needed, friend.
A bit presumptuous to know exactly what her feelings were. I mean, I know this is anime but it seems like the fault’s with Hybrid on this one.
“It took forever until it finally felt like we were dating.”
With the way this is phrased, I got the impression the drunkard pushed his father away. But in reality, it was the other way around.
For some reason, I don’t feel that causing your viewers to misunderstand plot points is a good way to sub a show, Hybrid.
immediate response? The fuck does that mean here?
“Your response was surprising.”
If you can stomach how this looks and reads, you’re probably overweight.
Lucky her her.
Beyond these highlights, there’s a lot wrong on the back end of the script. Needless word repetition in sentences, poor sentence linking (sometimes Hybrid remembers how to use ellipses and sometimes they don’t), and generally dull phrasing help underscore why these subs are not your best option.
Oh well, enough of this shit. Reaction time.
Gonna interject and say that this thinking is exactly why the subs suck. While Hatsuyuki was literal, their subs weren’t intentionally stupid. Okay, back to the reactions.
You actually missed out on quite a bit of the reactions from this episode. But that’s because most of the reactions were just cringeworthily bad, and other comments on the script were mini-shrines to bad English. There was also a subplot of Kaitou making fun of the show/commenting on it, and then someone (Denpa?) commenting that he’s trolling — almost like he didn’t understand what trolling was.
The reason I didn’t include all that awkward is because in these bonus sections, I try to at least make fansubbers look like they made it out of middle school. (Yes, it’s hard.)
Visual grade: C+
Script grade: C
Overall grade: C
Hatsuyuki looks like your best bet for this show. But if you want it fast, you’d probably be better off just grabbing the HorribleSubs release when it comes out than waiting for this. Or, you know, actually watch it on Crunchyroll.
