Translation Party: [Commie vs. FFF vs. Kaylith-Oni] Red Data Girl (Episode 01)

Fansub Review, Translation Party — By on April 5, 2013 1:23 am

We’ll have to hold off on the Dansai companion piece till tomorrow. But have another TL Party~

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.

Red Data Girl - 03

Commie :: Now that you’ve cut your hair, you should really try to act more like a normal girl.
Yeah, when you go to Sototsugawa, you should try to come out of your shell a bit.
How are you going to enjoy your youth otherwise?

FFF :: Now that you went ahead and cut your hair,
you should try being more like a normal girl.
Yeah. If you’re going to Sototsugawa, you’ll need to become a bit more sociable.
Otherwise, you’ll end up wasting your teenage years.

Kaylith-Oni :: Since you cut your hair,
why not try acting like a normal girl for a change?
Yeah, especially if you plan on fitting in at Sototsugawa.
If you don’t, you’ll only remember being awkward, you know?

Commie :: I have transferred to your school.
It pains me to impose on your life, but I hope we will get along.
I can study anywhere,
but there are some things here that I can do nowhere else.
I came to realize my weakness and cowardice once more after I was injured.

FFF :: I’m sorry to impose on you,
but I hope you’ll let me stay here.
I can study anywhere. And I can do much more.
Through my accident, I realized my own weak-mindedness.

Kaylith-Oni :: I’ve chosen to transfer schools to the one around here.
I hope that I do not burden you in the future.
I would appreciate it if I could live here.
I can study anywhere, and I’ll do any work you require of me.
After a good bump on the head, I realize how foolish I was being.

It would’ve been nice if he’d done it here instead of in Haguro.

It pains me to impose on your life, but I hope we will get along.
I can study anywhere,
but there are some things here that I can do nowhere else.
I came to realize my weakness and cowardice once more after I was injured.

FFF :: I’m sorry to impose on you,
but I hope you’ll let me stay here.
I can study anywhere. And I can do much more.
Through my accident, I realized my own weak-mindedness.

Kaylith-Oni :: I’ve chosen to transfer schools to the one around here.
I hope that I do not burden you in the future.
I would appreciate it if I could live here.
I can study anywhere, and I’ll do any work you require of me.
After a good bump on the head, I realize how foolish I was being.

Why do I do this to myself when I know what will happen? :: N/A. They all suck.

Red Data Girl – 10

Commie :: The last time you came here,
you were bullying me by throwing a ball at me.
You wouldn’t stop.
>Yeah, I remember now.
>There was this ugly, dumb girl with braids, so I figured I’d teach her some useful skills.
>There was none of this ‘servant’ crap back then.

FFF :: Last time you came to the shrine, you bullied me. You kept hitting me with that ball…
>I remember now.
>I met this really lousy girl with braids and ended up giving her a piece of my mind.
>It’s not like I was her manservant back then.

Kaylith-Oni :: Last time you were here, all you did was bully me.
Over and over.
>Seems like you remember.
>Some children are disgusting, mean creatures.
>I figured I should toughen you up for them.
>It wasn’t about me being your manservant.

Holy fucking shit, Dark_Sage. Give me more comparisons. I fucking live for this! (Put the knife down and keep reading. We got ten more comparisons for ya.)

Please look up what you want to see and do on the Internet and compile it into a report.

Look up the things you want to see and do on the Internet, and write a report about it.

Commie :: I haven’t talked to Sagara’s son a lot, but he seems to have the right stuff, doesn’t he?
He spent some time alone in the mountains when he was thirteen, you know.
I wish he’d done it here and not in Haguro.

FFF :: We only talked a little, but I reckon Sagara-kun’s son has a fine character.
He’d already completed his ascetic training in the mountains when he was thirteen.
It would’ve been nice if he’d done it here instead of in Haguro.

Kaylith-Oni :: We only chatted for a bit, but Sagara’s son seems to have good character.
He finished all his training in the mountains at the age of 13.
It’d be nice if he’d transfer soon.

Why did he call Miyuki my manservant?

FFF :: Why did Sagara-san say that I was raised protected from the world?
Why did he say that Miyuki-kun was to become my manservant?
>About that…
>It’s because Sagara-kun is a mountain monk.
>A mountain monk?

Kaylith-Oni :: Why did Sagara-san say I was a girl born to be protected?
Why is Miyuki-kun going to be my manservant?

Commie :: Due to family circumstances, I’ll be living at Tamakura Shrine.
As such, I must show due deference to Suzahara,
but I hope I can be friends with everyone else here.

I am greatly indebted to Suzuhara-san for her kindness.
I hope I can get along with everyone else, too.

Oh, Dark_Sage will you be doing any reviews on Karneval? Only two groups are really doing it, one being the people who translate manga and other being Anime-Koi.

Interesting that I mostly chose K-O for the essentials and mostly FFF for the expanded 10.

Seems like FFF made a mistake with that Engrish line though…

Seems like FFF is the clear favorite. Commie was good but they stumbled around a bit. FFF seemed to get everything right.

7,9,10,14 had pretty shitty translation options so I skipped them.

So D_S how does RDG grab you? Or is it too early to tell? Anyway, I await your +02 reviews.

Gotta love accurate results like that. :p

Well anyway, looking at the derpy lines and checking who the odd one out is – best to go with FFF.

Hmm, okay then…

FalseDawn says:

Noticed a pattern here – FFF has an editor who knows what they’re doing with English, but the translations (either by the tl or the editor over-editing) seem a bit more iffy than the others. I ended up picking Commie more, not because their editing was better, but because their lines sounded more *believable* in context.

I reckon FFF would have a pretty good release if they threw a bit more TLC at it.

But what’s with this sentence about him bullying her, all 3 translations were kind of weird…

Interesting, when I looked back to which ones were for what I found that the translations I was very sure of were always FFF while the ones where I did not know enough jp to know I chose Commie.

Since I watched FFF’s before doing this, I’m gonna go ahead and call confirmation bias <_<

Also:
"Whoa, looks like the shrine grounds got paved down the middle!"

Am I the only one that thinks that sounds more like a euphemism for sex than a lame joke about being hit in the face?

ryuu_zer0 says:

It’s supposed to be a joke about her new haircut.

Razanur says:

OK, the joke makes sense now.

Except Commie’s version, which still sounds more like a euphemism to me <_<.

Critical thinking: mine on and/or Commie’s off?

Hmmm, I’ll wait for the actual reviews. Perhaps the regular air versions will be better than the pre-airs.

Pacific says:

Oops! Rechecked this article since I couldn’t wait for the DS review and whaddya know, this was a regular (v1) party, after all.

Between this and my SNAFU party fubar, I see that I need to lay off the late night TL parties until I install a drunk posting app.
I get so intoxicated with myself that can’t make out what I’m seeing and I fall for any fun party star. Next I start apologizing for their verbal (and other parts) abuse, and I end up getting group-banged, all the while dissing a good friend/sub ;-)
But seriously, imho Commie did a good job with their v0 (nearly identical to their v1), although they could have nuanced better their last line of Essential (Endless?) 8: e.g. “The word may have been forgotten, but the relationship remains ‘just’ the same”

tl;dr

FFF apparently had a major rewrite for their v1, whereas Kaylith-Oni skipped the pre-airs for a leisurely v1.

FWIW (do I get a penny for my thoughts?) these were my revised results after a sober, context-sensitive comparison:
Overall scores…
Commie: 14 times
FFF: 4 times
Kaylith-Oni: 1 time

P.S. As you see, I still haven’t installed a drunk posting app.
