This isn’t the high school scale where anything less than a B+ means you’re an idiot. Actually, maybe it is. Also, welcome to one of Crymore’s hidden articles.
A+ Rare. This is the standard to which all fansubs should aspire. Error-free (or almost) scripts with powerful, well-written dialogue and astounding visuals are what makes up the releases here. I also have to like the show. Is that fair? No. But I don’t make the rules; I just enforce ’em.
A Near-perfect scripts with near-perfect visuals. This is the good shit.
B+ to A- Yeah, I actually consider these to be almost the same thing. These grades are reserved for subs that do a damn excellent job of what they need to. Issues will be minor and likely will not concern the average viewer.
B Subs with enough issues to make a difference comprise this category. Based on previous seasons, this is still an above-average score and should not denigrated.
F These subs are complete and utter failures. Often subbed by idiots who think they’re doing a good job, these subs lack anything which might be considered “English”. You’d do better by watching the show without subtitles because your guess is guaranteed to be better than theirs.
F- Reserved for the most terribad of subs. The subtitles not only fail, they fail so spectacularly that they become worth watching just to see the trainwreck.
This is how I view the grades I hand out to groups. Just an FYI since I think some people may have gotten the wrong idea about what my scores mean. Back to the reviews now.
