Fuck this show. May this party wash away its sins.

Translation Party House Rules:

Spoiler:
1. Translation Parties are intended to help you make the best subtitle choice for a given anime. Choose which line(s) you liked best by selecting them with the checkbox.

2. I split the Party into two parts — Essential and Extended. Assuming you want to get this shit over with quickly, just go with the Essential choices. I picked these to be the most representative lines in the releases. But if you’re one of those people who want more comparisons to help you come to a decision, go with the Essential choices and the Extended ones.

3. If you didn’t like any of the lines, choose the “N/A” option. The results for “N/A” won’t be automatically tabulated, so you’ll have to do the math in your head. Have my gomens and nasais.

4. A “>” indicates that another character has begun speaking. If there are three characters in a line comparison, I will indicate the third with a “>>” and so on for more characters.

5. Group order is randomized for each screenshot, every time you refresh the page. However, the “N/A” option will always appear at the bottom of the screen.

6. Your results will be summed up when you click the “Get your results” button. Feel free to vote in the poll at the end/post in the comments to let others know how you did and to compare your results with them.

7. Party hard.

Note that there will be a companion piece for this TL Party coming later today.

I liked doing that.
Everyone in my family would let me cut their hair.
But eventually, everyone started going to proper hairdressers instead. {to include male family, not sure if he actually cut for them}

This episode was so dumb…instadrop.

Looks like this was my first accurate prediction of the season. Go me.

How can you scoundrels you not like “Hair Porn – The Animation”?

Vanth says:

Plz post your results as well D_S.

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, yeah. There you go.

pengu says:

But I kind of liked RDG, apart from the shy MC. I hope the character development will make her less annoying soon. The male lead was refreshingly badass and mean. Additionally: great ending song

Vanth says:

I hate D_S for not giving RDG a sporting chance but lets face it, I love reading his insightful reviews so it all evens out.

Figured as much.

I got similar results to those totals. Anime-Koi’s had some issues I was not expecting to see from them. :/

Edit:
Anime-Koi: 1 times
Asenshi: 5 times
Mezashite: 10 times

Vanth says:

Yeah, their font style and size sucked as well. Hope you’re gonna review them soon.

Dark_Sage says:

I tend to avoid doing reviews and TL parties for the same episode, so their 02+ are up for grabs. Though, I do hope they improve.

danuchiha99 says:

So, which group do you recommend for now?

Dark_Sage says:

I recommend whichever group performed best in this TL Party for you. If your results are inconclusive, I would recommend Mezashite’s version, because it had what I’d consider the most colorful dialogue (Expanded 3 as an example). Asenshi’s would be the runner-up, as for a number of lines they hit on the “natural” type of language I tend to enjoy (Expanded 9 as an example), despite their issues with lines like Essential 2.

Unfortunately, Anime-Koi suffered from serious understanding issues (Essential 4, Essential 5, Essential 8) accompanied by juvenile dialogue (multiple lines didn’t follow the others, and the writing was short and dull with too much word repetition and imprecise dialogue). I do not recommend watching their 01.

I actually watched episode 1 from Anime-Koi. So I didn’t fall victim to the so-called “confirmation bias” that so many people complain about in these TL parties.

Oh Jesus, I’m about to start RDG. Don’t jinx it.

That’s the release I watched. I had some issues with the part that had “kami, kami kami”, and the “It’s ironic, right?” part. The latter could have done with a TL note or something.

lygerzero0zero says:

I thought there was one group that consistently had stupid translation mistakes, but then I opened the spoiler tag and the mistakes were apparently distributed relatively evenly. So I guess “raw.”

Dark_Sage says:

It would be nice if things went that smoothly :/

Akatsukin says:

Anything in particular, lyger? Besides Essential 3, that was our bad.

lygerzero0zero says:

Group being Mezashite I assume? I only did the essentials and didn’t really keep count. I just noted that every group had at least one of the dumb errors, rather than one group carrying the idiot ball the whole way as I’d expected. Maybe that was the only mistake from your group.

Speaking of essential three, I gotta say, and this is directed at all groups, that “cut” is a pretty damn weak way to translate 斬る. Though I haven’t seen this show, so maybe it’s supposed to resonate with the whole scissors theme.

While I’m here, I’m not a fan of the “ironic, right?” with no explanation. What’s ironic? You localize so the non-Japanese-speaking audience can understand the story BETTER. You don’t localize to pretend the Japanese language doesn’t exist. Lots of groups are guilty of the latter.

If there is no further elaboration on her name, then the audience is left completely hanging, with the vague feeling that they missed something, but with no idea what it was they missed. And so you have failed as a translator to do your duty.

Ryuk/Kamina-kun says:

Is Crymore back and running. O.o

Dark_Sage says:

You know it.

Kenji says:

How can there be three different translations with distinct differences? Is this a translator test?

Guess it’s time to stick with manga.

Wow, how did that happen?

Also, double-voted on “they all suck” 12 times because for some of them, all of the choices just seemed… off, for the lack of a better word, and there were a few that I wanted to mix-and-match a few things for some reason.

Though I must not’ve had a good night’s sleep last night or something, because I accidentally voted “Anime-Koi” in the last poll for some reason. I usually don’t slant-read unless I’m reading from, say, a long list (like a class roster) or at a weird angle over an ATM, but I don’t know what the hell happened there.

Internette says:

It’s a tie between Anime-Koi and Asenshi

I did lots of “They all suck.” I thought Anime-Koi did pretty well last season, but if Mezashite is the one to go with, then off I go to them.

That’s quite surprising. I expected to find that Asenshi or Koi would be the best option for this, but some of Koi’s lines really suck in comparison to the other two.

Was surprised by how many of Mezashite’s lines I liked.

It’s probably because I haven’t watched the show yet, so am lacking context, but it seemed like some of the lines, for all three groups, were pretty poor.

Kawwmoi says:

Yeah, I don’t balance the Essential/Extended to make sure people will get similar results straight through. My thought process is pretty much “The ten most significant differences/translations from the groups will go into the Essential and the other ten will get shoved to the Extended.”
