That styling.

[Samurai] Mangirl! - 04 [720p][C822C686].mkv_snapshot_00.24_[2013.02.05_02.21.08]

Kawaii OP unsubbed. ;_;

[Samurai] Mangirl! - 04 [720p][C822C686].mkv_snapshot_00.51_[2013.02.05_02.21.55]

Three lines like this. Too stupid to \an8?

[Samurai] Mangirl! - 04 [720p][C822C686].mkv_snapshot_01.04_[2013.02.05_02.22.24]

Oh, so you can \an8. I guess you weren’t as stupid as I thought. Just forgetful?

[Samurai] Mangirl! - 04 [720p][C822C686].mkv_snapshot_01.38_[2013.02.05_02.25.43]

I take that back.

If we’re talking about wastes, let’s talk about the time I spent watching this release.

[Samurai] Mangirl! - 04 [720p][C822C686].mkv_snapshot_03.11_[2013.02.05_02.30.08]


[Samurai] Mangirl! - 04 [720p][C822C686].mkv_snapshot_03.18_[2013.02.05_02.30.34]

Superior typesetting and translation. “If you leave her alone, she discloses one’s dark”. Just brilliant, Samurai.

[Samurai] Mangirl! - 04 [720p][C822C686].mkv_snapshot_03.25_[2013.02.05_02.32.02]




Resultation: Failure.

Assasin_Cross says:

Superior typesetting indeed.

Kamica says:

Typesetting that runs off the screen, huh? Something like that can actually happen?

Dark_Sage says:

Fansubbers are a crafty people. Looks like they found a way.

Assasin_Cross says:

Count the QC too!
He probably blind and can’t see the Typeset!

Darkmaster says:

why are you don’t install fonts

Dark_Sage says:

It’s not the viewer’s responsibility to search the internet for fonts your retarded distro guy didn’t mux.

dude says:

why are you don’t english speak

FalseDawn says:

Probably a fail \clip or whatever the tag is.

Neko-Chan says:

No, it wouldn’t be a \clip mistake. Probably just a fail \pos.

FalseDawn says:

Oh, you might be right. I forgot \pos could be that buggy sometimes.

Assasin_Cross says:

It’s not bug. It’s the TSer’s fault.

Neko-Chan says:

Get a better TSer then. They shouldn’t be making \pos mistakes.

Assasin_Cross says:

Why do I need to get a better TSer for them?

FalseDawn says:

By buggy, I meant “allow something like that to happen.” Admittedly I wasn’t clear in that I didn’t wholeheartedly blame the TSer, but yes, their TSer is at fault here.

Assasin_Cross says:

We sometime need to use 9001 \pos or \move to make the sign run off the screen.

FalseDawn says:

Yeah, but actually the same effect could be got if there was an .ass tag to change margins for one line only (or a \t tag for margin change). It’d prevent \pos from needing a hard break (\N) when it nears the edge of the screen and stop cock-ups like this happening.

Assasin_Cross says:

\t is for transform
also fuck fixing margin, just move the sign a bit to left

FalseDawn says:

I meant a transform that could change margin too when you’re doing a move. Ah, probably a pipe dream though.

ar says:

Margins only work if linewidth > ( videowidth – marginR – marginL ). You can bypass margins with the \q2 tag. But in this case, the text is just off-screen due to dumb? positioning.

No margins could have prevented this, since the width of the line doesn’t meet the above-mentioned criteria. It’s obvious this isn’t intentional on-off screen placement, so yeah this is just lazy.

ouma says:

i think you are forgot something

Novles says:

This was a very thorough review.

Dark_Sage says:

It’s a 4 minute anime. What did you expect?

Anna-chan says:


FalseDawn says:

Maybe they forgot to load the fonts then. Or have v2’d the fonts since?

Ezekiel says:

maybe the font didn’t load correctly on D_S computer…

FalseDawn says:

Afaik, the only way that would happen is if the muxing process went wrong. It’s unlikely to be a filter issue.

corocoro says:

Nope. Someone forgot to mux the fonts, so it only displays correctly if you just happen to have “Impress BT”, “Humana Sans Md ITC TT”, “Young Techs”, “ichigo69smells”, and “Janda Safe and Sound Solid” installed.
Of course, fonts like “ichigo69smells” are basically system default fonts, only very few people should be affected!

corocoro says:


Title: HorribleSubs
Video File: [바카-Raws] Mangirl! #04 (MX 1280×720 x264 AAC).mp4


And I forgot a “so” in the comment before. (-_-)

Ichigo69 says:

actually, ichigo69smells.ttf is a font that euronymous created for his Koichoco karaoke. I’d be very surprised if anybody had it as a system default font lol.

P.S. I feel honoured and insulted all at the same time… orz

corocoro says:

I was pointing out that it’s highly unlikely anyone has all those fonts installed and hinted at the three persons who reported the TS to be fine being at least affiliated with Samurai, but carry on. :p

Sai says:

Can anyone tell me where i can download the ichigo69smells font from?

rarely_upset says:

[Safa] = Samurai Fansubs
[Saha] = Porn unrestricted by the trappings of gender.

I, er, heard this from a friend of a friend.

Anonymous says:

good one

Ezekiel says:

Blame the QC for everything :v

Vong says:

I guess I’ll assume that you’re the Editor and/or Typesetter for Mangirl and shove all the blame onto you….. its easier then me actually downloading your release and hoping you do your staff listing “old-hadena” style

Ezekiel says:

I’m not working in this show…
but from this one

i didn’t know where’s the fail one ._.

corocoro says:

Someone forgot to mux the fonts in.

Dark_Sage says:

Ezekiel, Samurai is filled with idiots. Either you or Treize need to teach the dipshit in charge of this project how to mux.

Adams64 says:

“[03:34] Might wanna remind the person doing the distroing to mux the fonts in
[03:34] Kinda helps in regards to TSing and Kara
[03:34] Yeah, I saw what they were doing… I didn’t like it…
[03:35] I know their mistakes I will do something to fix them”

Hopefully he’ll do something to sort out the issues

Ezekiel says:
after take a look on the data…
looks like between encoder / QC fail to attach the font…

okay i got the point…

Treize says:

Fail? Please learn what true quality is.

Adams64 says:

No Translation for OP/ED Songs, Forgot to mux in fonts, un-translated signs, poor use of English.

Theres a time and place for the term; “Quality” and this is neither the time, nor the place
