[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.

again -> either

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

Try curt, you cunts.

Why?

[Commie] Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. - 03 [D4D30F16].mkv_snapshot_20.25_[2013.05.02_22.45.31]

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.

  1. >Might also,

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

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

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

    • 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.

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

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

        • 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).

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

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

      • >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?

  3. 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?

  4. >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.
