Crymore is dead, long live NarutoMore

I have decided to retire from the fansub game in favor of the more enjoyable Naruto scene.

Expect posts about how NUNS3 is fucking shit for not letting us play as the Edo Kages, how Naruto x Sasuke is still a relevant pairing despite Sasuke-san being intentionally IGNORED by Kishimito-san, and how Hinata just can’t catch a break (I’m still working on a way to resolve my Sasuke X Naruto and Hinata X Naruto shipping desires).

I think this will be a game-changer in the aniblog scene.






Things unrelated to


Hyobu will never be dropped so long as I’m still breathing, even though the show is so shit.

Honestly, I’m fucking mad at myself. The only good show I’ve ever subbed is Highschool of the Dead — I have the worst track record. Oh, and Fresh Precure. I guess Bakemonogatari was pretty good too. Wait a second… It’s not me that subs bad… it’s the Whine-Subs brand that’s doing it.

Yeah, that’s it. Has nothing to do with my apathy toward the shows I work on or my lack of leadership skills. Rebrand imminent?


Yes, I will have to drop some fansub reviews from my queue once the new season starts. You’ll still get the popular ones you want, though. Don’t like that? Too bad — each review takes me around two hours and I have NOT been working on this shit at all recently.

I’ll try to get through shit as best I can, but cuts will have to be made, because that’s how reality works.


I really, really, really, really, really, really hate Hyobu. And I really hate the jokesub tracks I’ve made after the first episode’s. Unfortunately, I’m going to keep up with this shit because like I already said (and I have to reiterate this), I’m not dropping Hyobu. But no, I’m not going to do fansub reviews until I’m caught up on Hyobu. Guess that makes this a pretty shitty situation.

For the jokesubs, well I’m going to keep them, but I don’t think you’re gonna like them. You’re going to taste my misery.


You’re (probably) not gonna like what I’ve been working on in between my bouts of apathy and real life (don’t worry, those of you who remember Crymore’s earliest days, I’m not going back to lifeblogging.) but at least you’ll get a single post out of it.

Fine, Whiners.Pro, if you must be technical.

kayserlein says:

Reallife sucks…

stgmefly says:

I was actually just thinking about you.

Dark_Sage says:

What a coincidence, I was just thinking about myself too.

stgmefly says:

With good reason.

Luke says:

You’re one-liners are great.

Dark_Sage says:

If you like my one-liners, you should see my two-liners. They’re fantastic.

TouToTheHouYo says:

That still fit on one line.


Dark_Sage says:

The shame will live on in my family for three generations.


Onyx says:

Ultimate ninja storm Generations?

Novles says:

Perhaps Whine-Subs should stop attempting to sub things.

rarely_upset says:

But then he’d just be Whining.

Wait a minute…

Marow says:

If you believe it!
Naruto! Naruto!
Believe it! Belieeeeeeeeeeve it!

abc says:

Dark_Sage, were you ever a real Naruto fan? Did you own a ninja headband? Do you look back on those dark days and shudder? Or are you just mocking the pain of those of us who once had such unrefined tastes?

Dark_Sage says:

I legitimately enjoy Naruto despite its many, many faults. Hell, I even tend to ninja run across crosswalks. Haters gonna hate, but you can’t stop my swagger.

tormaid says:


Marow says:

But One Piece and Hunter x Hunter.

Justinnnnnn says:

But Hunter x Hunter.*

There we go..

TouToTheHouYo says:


corocoro says:

It’s spelled “Hunter x Hunter”. Easy mistake to make.

psie says:


zeust says:

Wow… Naruto More, using naruto has become so cliche… well I don’t blame if you are a fanatic… I do like Naruto, but not MY BEST.
Any way, I’m posting to say this: You don’t have to add the joke-tracks for Hyoubu. They’re so unrealistic (at least to me), and I think it’s not worth it. I’m just saying. Nothing imposed or asserted here…

returnity says:

If he dropped the jokesubs, there’d be little point in putting out a regular generisub release of a shitshow when others already did it weeks earlier.

Fight on D_S! Oh, and remember hit me up in IRC if you need another good editor to help you write immature jokes about crappy chinese cartoons.

Dark_Sage says:

Well you’ll be getting a PM tonight then.

Dark_Sage says:

We’re also the only group doing Hyobu, so I don’t know what you’re talking about.

zeust says:

Well, my point is…
Even though the show sucks, what’s so funny in creating a fake story? I mean yeah the show sucks, just let it suck. I just appreciate that you’re subbing it despite the fact you hate it. Good enough for me to appreciate you, you know. You don’t have to go all the way through to create / write a fake / funny story. Again, I’m just saying, the choice is yours…

returnity says:

> pretending HS doesn’t exist

(plus the full range of quality DeadFish re-encodes of HR’s cast-rips.)

But yeah I’ll be on when I’m home around 5 EST, talk to you then.

Jeffrey-sama says:

Cool story bro.

Neko-Chan says:

Dark_Sage, can you make a tutorial on how you make your amazing banners? One day I aspire to be as great as you.

koeniginator says:

Speaking of banners, any reason you chose to use Yuno for the last banner? Are you a fan of Mirai Nikki or something, Dark_Sage?

TouToTheHouYo says:

I direct you to:

Specifically, the Mirai Nikki entry.

Dark_Sage may fancy it a bit.

Dark_Sage says:

Mm, quite.

Vanth says:

A little early for April fool’s dontcha think?

FalseDawn says:

What do you mean? He’s being entirely serious. Dark_Sage is ALWAYS serious.

Sheep says:

Hyoubu Kyosuke was okay, I’m really only in it for the opening song that made no sense (KICKING THE GATE OF FRAME, ONE HISTORY ONLY, SYSTEMING IN TOMORROW) though that was probably intentional considering the second version.

My shitty and pointless opinions aside, can’t wait for your future shit.

Anony says:

what is this i dont even

zuly says:

Hyobu suck anyway.

I’ve heard that subdesu-h is searching for new editor. DS, do you are up to it?

Dark_Sage says:

It seems I have finally found my purpose in life.

Melchizedek says:


Kamica says:

Yes, I will have to drop some fansub reviews from my queue once the new season starts

But how will you decide where the cutoff point is?
I’d like to offer a suggestion. Tackle everything listed on the poll from [Mazui] Haganai to GJ-bu translation party . Taking into consideration that JoJo has three releases, that would equal 14 remaining reviews. I feel that these 14 reviews would comprise the “winter 2013 essentials”. Though if you can manage more, i’m sure it would make a few people happy.

Dark_Sage says:

The cutoff point is wherever I have to leave it. I’ll go exactly in the order people voted on, and stop when I have to. I don’t exactly have a list of “must-review”s.

PolynAzn says:

Tamako Market pls
Tamako Market pls
Tamako Market pls
pls Market Tamako
pls Market Tamako
pls Market Tamako

Dark_Sage says:

I’m gonna edit it tonight, promise-u.

anon says:

Good to know you will continue Hyobu, it’s sad that you hate it though. Your jokesubs always make me watch each episode twice.

2ColouredEyes says:

WTF? Naruto serious business??
Regardless, I do not mind if you put Love Live! in the considering-to-review list

appropriant says:

No more love for Japanese Magneto, it seems.

TouToTheHouYo says:

Wait a minute, Naruto’s a Japanese Jewish holocaust survivor with magnetic superpowers and a megalomaniacal persecution complex?

I’ll believe it!

appropriant says:

>Was actually talking about D_S’s festering hatred towards Hyobu

Jordan says:

It’s not April 1st. wtf?

Dark_Sage says:

You’re right, it’s March 12th. Good observation.

sekuhara says:

glad to hear you’re still doing Hyobu, i’m not crazy about it but i’m too autistic to drop it and i’m happy to wait for the best release available. cheers

Kamica says:

Mochi edits tonight?

Dark_Sage says:

Tch. Fine.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh, it’s not at me. Good. Back to slacking the fuck off.

stushi says:

No no, it is at you.
Trust me.

Kamica says:

Making any [Whine-Subs] progress?

Passerby says:

> I’m not going to do fansub reviews until I’m caught up on Hyobu.

Well, good luck! You still have 6 more episodes to sub. I assume I won’t be seeing your reviews before next month.

Hiiro-kun says:

Aren’t you optimistic, I wasn’t expecting any until May at the earliest.

Dark_Sage says:

Hyobu is tearing this site apart.

Jii-san says:

Please renege on your promise to not drop Hyobu. Or at least forget about the jokesubs. I’m pretty sure most people would rather have your reviews anyways.

I know I certainly miss the reviews. MOAR D_S RAGE PLS.

Chisel says:

Don’t give up on Hyobu! No matter how long the reviews must wait, keep subbing Hyobu no matter how shitty it is.

koeniginator says:

Just make an exception for the start of the next season, Christ.

I would be 100% A-OK if you just released the subs somepoint before I die. I could give less of a fuck as to when, but since you’re going to keep your promise it looks like, don’t let it cripple everything else.

stushi says:

inb4 D_S tells us Hyobu is dropped.

P32L says:

Sage is Jesus? You might be talking him up a little too much there…

Dark_Sage says:

Can do.

Hairy says:

Fuck Hyobu, it’s shit.

I want fansub reviews.

Kamica says:

Happy one month anniversary on not doing fansub reviews!

psie says:

can you just fuck the fansub reviews and do an overview of the upcoming season?
i find your shitty opinions 50% more interesting than reading about fansub groups that can write in broken english

P32L says:

Yeah, fuck the fansub reviews! They serve only to hold up your quarterly predictions! Besides, I’m sure they’re not why most people visit this site.

Anyway, psie, why do even visit this site if the most interesting thing you can glean from it is the occasional opinion piece?

arnon says:

The comments are sometimes more interesting than the articles themselves.

Kamica says:

Red Data Girl reviews coming this weekend?

No says:

I assume you’ve been busy updating
But I still get server not found messages when I try to access it. Any chance you could look into this?

animegio says:


stushi says:


Qrius says:

works fine for me

Qrius says:

and there’s new content uploaded daily

Chisel says:

Yea the newest post bout last weeks episode was awe inspiring and gave me a whole new outlook of the show.

Excuse Me Sir It Has Been Brouhgt To My Attention That You Have Stolen My Websites Name. I Demand You Decease Imediately.


P32L says:

You demand he decease immediately?! Boy that’s harsh!

Neko-Chan says:

Ahaha… wait… this isn’t a joke?!

Dark_Sage says:

Pretty sure he’s not being serious. Well, based on the email used, at least. Though you can’t really tell that unless you’re me. …or him, I guess.

Ruzenor says:

I lold

aoihakurei says:

Holy shit he’s serious.

3173 says:

I’m not sure whether I should laugh at you or pity you for being an ignorant fool.

D_S seems to attract the most amusing people.
