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.

  1. Overall scores…
    ota: 7 times
    HorribleSubs: 1 time
    Hadena: 4 times
    Commie: 8 times
    Looks like your best bet is Commie

    So… that’s that, I guess.

  2. ota: 1 time
    HorribleSubs: 1 time
    Hadena: 5 times
    Commie: 2 times
    Looks like your best bet is Hadena

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

    • 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.

    Wait, i think ive got something wrong somewhere…

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

    • 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.

  5. Well that was surprising.
    ota: 4 times
    HorribleSubs: 1 time

    wat do?

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

    • 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.

  7. ota: 0 times

    It’s a tie between HorribleSubs and Commie

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

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

    Commie then… Hadena’s changes made the script looks stupid.

    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.

    ota: 4 times
    HorribleSubs: 4 times

    It’s a tie between ota, HorribleSubs, and Commie.

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

    • 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.

    Thought as much. I enjoyed their release the best.

    Commie: O Sparkling One

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

    That’s it, going with ota.

    • 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.”

      • 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”.

    Commie is clearly the best choice, but this show seems like ass, so I’d say clear of it.

    HorribleSubs: 5 times

    Well, at least it wasn’t Hadena, althought it was pretty close…

    I’ll watch ota’s version.

    • 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.

      • 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 :)

      • D_S, mind putting a review for Anime-Koi then instead of having those poll? was kinda struggling with Anime-koi vs Commie so… you know

        Ota? any news about them or comments?

        • Perhaps…

          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.

    Yes, ota looks good. I mean, because I’ve read the manga so I thought “Have a nice wheee” is better.
