[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_01.25_[2013.05.02_21.38.52] [Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_01.36_[2013.05.02_21.39.09]

Opening. The colors match… sometimes. That’s good enough, right?

Sure.

Rating: Okay.

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_22.37_[2013.05.02_22.58.42] [Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_22.40_[2013.05.02_22.58.51]

Ending. I guess they were going for the “anything’s better than rainbow text approach” which, while true, doesn’t particularly lotion my dick. (Euphemisms are for cowards.)

Rating: Okay-.

 

 

Typesetting.

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_00.47_[2013.05.02_21.37.52]

Like a micropenis, the typesetting’s there, but it’s not gonna win any accolades. Other than small penis awards, I guess. Though I guess it’d be weird for a screen of fansubbed anime to win an award in that category.

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_02.22_[2013.05.02_21.40.06] [Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_23.35_[2013.05.02_22.59.53]

Good nuff.

Commie only hires the best of the best. Look at how naturally it blends in!

Script Review

Main Script.

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_03.25_[2013.05.02_21.41.25] [Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_03.28_[2013.05.02_21.42.18] [Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_03.31_[2013.05.02_21.42.09]

The script is a little awkward. And by “a little”, this isn’t another micropenis joke. I’m done with such classless comparisons. This shit’s going family mode now.

And by that, I mean these subs are so retarded, they could only be the product of incest.

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_04.39_[2013.05.02_21.44.32]

Do you guys not know what a “girly video” is? Cuz it sure as fuck ain’t a euphemism for porno.

These kind of things happen when the sole criteria to become a Commie editor is the ability to drink milk without using a fork.

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_05.19_[2013.05.02_21.50.40]

Might also,

Might as well,

Might you slit your wrists and go to hell?

Come on, guys. Try a bit harder. “Well, I might also regret how you and Azuki end up.”

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_07.53_[2013.05.02_21.58.09] [Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_07.55_[2013.05.02_21.58.15] [Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_08.01_[2013.05.02_22.00.09]

One of this release’s problems is that in this release, this release has a lot of problems with a lot of repetition in this release.

Learning how to actually use words is the next step after learning how to spell them, and while Commie didn’t have any typos, the script was pretty stupid.

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_08.17_[2013.05.02_22.00.48]

“Cutie pie” as your translation of “kawaii”? I know your group is the equivalent of the goth kid with gauges in special ed, but you’re not standing out in the way you think you are.

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_09.30_[2013.05.02_22.04.10]

?

Some groups try too hard.

The tone is “flat” or “honest”, not “fuck you”. “True that” in this situation may as well be said with two middle fingers in the air, because that’s how it comes across (and yes, you grammar’d it wrong because there’s no comma there).

Non-native English speakers shouldn’t edit. Cry it off as racism or whatever, but I’m telling you that for your own good. And if you do let them edit, don’t let them guess at Americanisms. The audience you’ll never reach won’t be impressed.

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_12.26_[2013.05.02_22.17.06]

Oh, you didn’t believe me that the editor wasn’t a native? Trust me, it’s kind of obvious.

I get the sense that you guys and reality have different definitions for what “Children Welfare Club” means.

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. How do you “put on” a “picture story”?

My dear American nakama, this is not the release you’re looking for. Everyone else (third-worlders, that is), you may as well learn the best language from some decent subs. Which are not these. …hopefully.

Plot twist: the editor for Commie is actually Russian.

Shoulda guessed something was up.

Hot.

Most beautiful example of poetry I’ve read in a while, Dark_Shakespeare

corocoro says:

I take your question mark and raise you a semicolon.

Godcore says:

Shirt’s the editor. It can’t be helped.

FalseDawn says:

What’s wrong with eating pudding with a fork? :s

Or do you Americans mean something else when you say pudding?

P32L says:

Why would you eat a pudding with a fork? A spoon’s got an edge for cutting, and you can scoop up the piece easily, not to mention it can hold sauce better. But then again, you eat cake with a fork.

I know that fruit in jelly is called pudding in Japan or China or wherever, so he may well have been referring to that.

FalseDawn says:

In Britland, pudding = dessert, so cake would fall within that scope.

Yeah, spooning is the way forward when it comes to jelly and such.

P32L says:

Oh, yeah, I was talking about chocolate pudding/ Christmas pudding/whatever, although I suppose the definition must be quite broader considering the outliers (e.g. Yorkshire pudding, black pudding— either of which you’d look damn stupid eating without a fork).

Jii-san says:

I think he’s saying that everybody (normally) eats pudding with a spoon, so Commie has low standards for editors.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh yeah, forgot the Queen’s Men called it something different. Will edit to make the review culturally accessible.

Jii-san says:

>drink milk without a fork

lol milk? Couldn’t you have gone with something like soup instead? (Yeah, I realize some people might say you occasionally eat soup with a fork, but still…)

On another note, Azuki Azusa or Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko?

Dark_Sage says:

It’s more mind-bogglingly stupid this way.

And, neither. The anime is too generic for me to like the characters.

2ColouredEyes says:

Number of screenshots where Tsukiko is in: 15
Azuki: 6 (included the letter/mail/whatever with her name)

Obviously.

Dark_Sage says:

The only thing you can gather from that is that Commie hates Tsukiko.

Haidaraaaaa says:

Not sure what went wrong with that first mask on the letter. it looked seemingly fine on my end. http://puu.sh/2LWPT.png Upon closer inspection I do see that the color is not pixel perfect. Not sure why your screenshot is that off though. I suspect my LED screen has something to do with that…

The 2nd time that note was shown it gave me absolute hell. Not much else I can say about that one. I will also take responsibility for the slowness of this episode. I was determined to finish typesetting an episode of jojo before I worked on henneko.

More importantly, do you have any suggestion to fix these or improve them in anyway?

Dark_Sage says:

If you’re asking for technical suggestions, I don’t have them. I can only tell you what looks bad from the perspective of the viewer. And that is, the first sign I pointed out is too small and the edges show in the two notes.

neto_rare says:

i’d suggest you, do not cover that shits out
because many variant colors in letters body and you couldn’t cover it with only one color, unless you hardwork enough to make some rectangles with matchable color

also your aligning still wrong in many ways in here http://www.crymore.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Commie-Hentai-Ouji-to-Warawanai-Neko.-03-D4D30F16.mkv_snapshot_12.00_2013.05.02_22.15.52.jpg
i think the original sign has some blur on there, so you need more blur
probably you can make it 2 layers, or make it one line is fine with some blur

well, i’m kinda dissapointed and admitted what D_S pointed was right, that small sign with unsuitable font clearly shit…

Haidaraaaaa says:

Alright, thanks for the tips. I will try not to fuck up again in the future. I have to admit that I was rushing to get the episode done. I took too long to do jojo and I had already held Henneko up a day before that.

Assasin_Cross says:

>someone take typesetting so srs

neto_rare says:

hey, i knew haidraaaa always did his jobs better than this…
like in jojo and mondaiji
just because i bothered with kind of that signs
and he can do that better…

and you’re a typesetter too…
i don’t know what are you trying to imply here but you make me sicken with kind of that critism

Assasin_Cross says:

Sign box with 1 colour isn’t wrong.

He just want to put the typeset as simple as possible.
1. If it covered with sign box, viewers don’t have idea what the original colour is until they turned of subs
2. I don’t know how the original sign so idc

Oh shit! time for Monster Hunter again

neto_rare says:

nothing much i care what are you talking now
because i assume you’re not really care with typesetting, so w/e dude…

Assasin_Cross says:

Why do I care when only 0.1% viewers care about typesetting?

Do you watch anime for typeset?

neto_rare says:

>now you positioning yourself as representative of viewers
do you not feel ashamed dude?
also >watching anime
pls

Assasin_Cross says:

Right now I’m a viewer not the one who work on this

neto_rare says:

yeah sure mate you talking really big as a viewer

Assasin_Cross says:

Same as you

neto_rare says:

yeah mate, i’m positioning myself as typesetter here, it’s naturally if i’m talking big here and do some criticism

Assasin_Cross says:

Then you should try doing it first

neto_rare says:

doing what?

Assasin_Cross says:

>i’m positioning myself as typesetter here

there

neto_rare says:

what?
am i should make some shit i’ve said here?
r u kidding, or do want me make you more ashmed or something?
dude you ridiculously funny
every comments you made here like exposing how dense are you…

Assasin_Cross says:

dense?
did you mean stupid or something like that?
>am I
pro tier

So, are you their Translator?

Assasin_Cross says:

>Assasin_Cross is a translator.
I wish I was one

Assasin_Cross says:

wrong person ( ¬‿¬)

neto_rare says:

you stupid, kill yourself.
also >commie
>translator
what?
pretty sure this is just CR edited script

lolthisdude says:

Lol this faggot didn’t get the joke.
Help me…

Fred C Dobbs says:

> you stupid, kill yourself.

No kill I stupid you. You sicken make
with critism; nothing care much I.

> what?

(Took the words right out of my mouth…)

kokujin-kun says:

>Like a micropenis, the typesetting’s
>there, but it’s not gonna win any accolades

>Dat gradient

Considering the alternative of completely masking the sign (lolnope, unless you want to spend forever and a day perfecting the shading and coloring of one stupid sign) then I say it’s a fair tradeoff.

Dark_Sage says:

Forever and a day it shall be. I demand perfection.

kokujin-kun says:

>Perfection

>Commie
