This is an archives post, which means it wasn’t good enough to post when I wrote it, but wasn’t bad enough to scrap. So read it if you’re bored, I guess.



So I guess this is a great way to start us off. Some shitty fucking MSPaint picture, branded with the group’s logo, and a link to some fucktard on DeviantArt.

Well, let’s see how deep this shithole goes.


What is this fucking font


No, tell me this isn’t going to happen throughout the rest of the episode.


Okay, it is. Thanks, T-N. My eyes were a bit dry before but now that they’re fucking bleeding that’s no longer an issue.


You fucking with me? For real, is this deliberate?


Now it’s OP time and they apparently decided to… translate the Japanese staff credits as their own names. Awesome.



What the shit is this karaoke? And did they even bother to read what their “translation” for this shit is?

If you showed any five year old kid in America this, the first thing out of their mouth would be “Why did those faggots fuck the OP up so badly?” How do you expect me to answer that kid? Huh, TV-Nihon?


There is no fucking way.

You know what, no. We’re done here. Bad game, I’m out.




I guess there’s a reason tokusatsu groups have the reputation they do. Goddamn.

Back to top



Razanur says:

I don’t know, that was the best review I’ve read in a while.

Granted you haven’t done, say, a Hadena review in a while. So I guess it balances out. Or something.

Why am I still awake?

Zumochi says:

D_S, why even bother?

Dark_Sage says:

Because bothering’s what I do best.

Minami says:

I’m bothered by this.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh bother.

(Thank you for that set-up. I really like you.)

neto_rare says:

not mentioned how fuck their shits in every show with same errors like that…

“I guess there’s a reason tokusatsu groups have the reputation they do. Goddamn.”

You mean, there’s a reason TVN has that reputation. Despite the amount of shows they’ve done, they aren’t the only group on the scene. Check out O-T.

Nukleon says:

O-T, Over Time.

Basically, the other group that subs weekly tokusatsu shows other than TVN, except they don’t suck… or well, suck less, from your perspective

Dark_Sage says:

If you ignore the wap translation choices and the visuals, they’re fine though.

At least they were for the rest of this episode.

Sheep says:

I used TV-N for GARO once(which I need to finish)

Obviously it’s enough to switch over to a different group that somebody linked to me after I bitched about their release where lines aren’t even translated, and they bother to subtitle a line in romaji even though that kinda defeats the point of TRANSLATION.

Basically, never again , even if they’re the only group for something, I can’t bear the subs at all.

My eyes deserve better than this.

FalseDawn says:

The dorama and tokusatsu scene has always been miles behind the fansubbing scene (same applies for the scanlation scene, I guess) because it’s far less populated by groups, so you get the kinda subs you’d expect in 2001-2004 because there’s no real competition and no drive to make the subs better than they are.

I’ve seen a couple of decent drama groups (who have anime subbers among their staff) but they’re few and far between. If you’re used to fansub releases, don’t expect to find the same quality when watching drama releases.

Corin says:

There’s actually an entire blog dedicated to how bad TV-Nihon is.

Besides, other groups like Over-Time and GUIS are much better.

jabashque says:

“Thanks, [group name]. My eyes were a bit dry before but now that they’re fucking bleeding that’s no longer an issue.


Reusing jokes much?

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, I do use jokes from articles I never intended to post in the first place. I don’t want to let them go to waste if they’re decent. You really shouldn’t expect anything from Archives posts.
