Translation Party: [Commie vs. Hadena vs. HorribleSubs vs. ota] Devil Survivor 2 The Animation (Episode 01)

Fansub Review, Translation Party — By on April 6, 2013 11:42 pm

As a reminder, I use checkboxes in these parties, so you can select multiple options if you wish.

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.

I’d like to note that even if you got Hadena as your best choice, you probably shouldn’t go with them. They edited in errors to the script, which isn’t really what I’d consider “acceptable”. Hopefully they clean their act up for episodes 2 and on.

Wait, what? I know you said they’ve gotten better, but…

Dark_Sage says:

They have improved, but not that much, you’re right. Go through it again, picking the worst option and you’ll probably get similar numbers.

Their Essential 5, “And then, the kick’s that it’s so funny… Huh?” is a fuck-up of an edit. In Essential 1, they went with “You’re pretty cheeky, eh, you bastard!”, which is… uhh, not sure what the fuck they were thinking. Expanded 7, where they had “Just now, the moment the train crashed, I was asked, “If I wanted to die?”.”, is also an issue.

I guess this highlights one of the primary issues with the TL Parties, which is you’re not always gonna get the best results.

Except that I chose “none” like… 10 times.

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, there wasn’t much “editing” going on in these releases. Surprisingly enough, Hadena edited the most out of any of the groups, which may explain their strong showing in the poll.

Well that was surprising.

Some of them seemed really same-y. It was starting to bug me.

Dark_Sage says:

What I pointed out here was about the only shit that even got edited. Groups really easy-moded it with their edits. As far as “wat do”, I guess you oughta go with Commie, though I can’t give them a strong recommendation.

I guess this means nobody really edited. Were these basically the only differences in the scripts?

And “We are special government organization” – really now?

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, pretty much. As you can see, I even had to cut the Expanded part short, with 9 comparisons instead of my usual 10.

Jii-san says:

So what’s up next on the review list? (And what happened to the queue, D_S? I really did want to see your opinions on GJ-bu scripts from last season~)

Hadena score the second highest, but I wouldn’t even consider them after looking at some of their other changes. Some are decent, but some are really bad.

Well, that was inconclusive. I need a second opinion.

Dark_Sage says:

Based solely on the party, I’d go with Commie. ota put less effort into the edits than Commie did, even if Commie missed the mark on some of their lines. Crunchyroll’s TL didn’t seem to have played the games, which means I wouldn’t really count too much on the quality of the HorribleSubs version.

Commie it is then. D_S has spoken.

NO. JUST NO. Couldn’t they have found someone who played the bloody game to QC?

That’s it, going with ota.

Solaristics says:

If you actually looked at the edit on their site they said “Yep. I’ll fix it for the batch and remember for future episodes. I’m not that far in the game yet, so I didn’t know.”

Kiraly says:

I can’t find find that edit.

But thanks for pointing me to the site anyway, or I wouldn’t have seen that awesome post about “The Eotena Onslaught”.

winnie says:

Hey, Anime-Koi just released their subs for this ^^ Would you mind adding theirs to compare?

Dark_Sage says:

I don’t really add groups to the parties after I post the parties. There are a few main reasons for this:

1. It’s pretty easy to game comparisons if all you do is wait until a post/comparison has been made, and then focus on making your subs for those lines look better than the other groups’. Yes, groups did this when SubCompare and ji-hi were still active, and I’m not keen on letting myself fall to the same tricks.
2. The day-1 readers will likely miss out on any additions to the parties, or simply not be interested in redoing the entire thing, just to factor in another group. And they wouldn’t be able to vote again unless I pseudo-reset the poll plugin.
3. Tied in with the above, any new group will be unfairly disadvantaged in poll scores, simply because a couple hundred people had taken the poll beforehand.

So yeah, if a group is late to the party, they’re not getting in. It’s unfortunate, but that’s how the system’s gotta work.

winnie says:

Oh okay, that makes sense. I guess it would be too much work to add another one. Thank you for taking your time to reply :)

As for ota, they’re just another Crunchyedit group. They did the least amount of editing for DeSu2 The Animation, though.

Hadena’s version sounded kind of British, but overall, there really wasn’t that much work put into this if these are the most significant changes you could find. Someone suggested they’d pick whoever had the best TS, and that seems reasonable enough.

I think you miss Anime-Koi fansub for this show

and look for the big deffrent between commie and anime-koi

this picture from anime-koi
http://im38.gulfup.com/guAop.png

and this picture from commie
http://im38.gulfup.com/D7ili.png

so the winner here is anime-koi becuase they are the closest meaning to the jap

returnity says:

If that’s the “big deffrent” then I must say I’m underwhelmed.

Vance says:

Considering that English appears to be your third language, you really shouldn’t comment on these sort of things.

just I watch from the begining to see what the best team sub this anime.
