Opening. There wasn’t anything special about this and I can’t say I understand the color choice. However, I can say I liked it more than FBI’s, because just plain white doesn’t really do much for me.
You can trust WhyNot for accurate translations, brilliant typesetting, and top-tier editing.
Both scenes have multiple people talking, but only the second has a different color for the text.
I’m gonna assume they’re not just going about this arbitrarily and simply forgot to color-code the top screen.
Maybe I’m just ignorant, but I didn’t know what a metastatic nodule was until after I looked it up. FBI went with “The tumor is spreading.” which gets the same point across, but much more clearly. There’s little value in complicating this line.
FBI handled this scene better (a common theme in this episode) with
“The best you can do for her is to grant her dying wish.” // “She’s only got three centuries left, if she’s lucky.”
FBI’s version is a lot more descriptive than WhyNot’s and handles the comedic absurdity of living for 300 more years as being an imminent death. Of course, this only matters if you want an enjoyable script for this show. If you don’t, I think you can already guess which release I’m going to recommend.
What do you mean, “I think”? I’m trying to wrap my head around this, but about the only way the line could work is if she’s someone’s fuckbuddy and thinks that sort of counts.
But that’s not even remotely the case here. Because no one would fuck her. Because she’s fugly.
Oh, WhyNot. I get that you want to make your own unique imprint on this anime, but I don’t think throwing a thesaurus at every other line is the best way to do it. FBI at least attempted to make the flavor they added to the show match the comedic intent (and it does work, for the most part).
Might want to put more thought into these things than whatever will impress your middle school peers.
“Until now, but now”? What varied word choice.
Okay, it’s math time! every day + the other = ?
Why don’t you tell us, WhyNot?
The word you’re looking for is “glared”. Unless incompetency is what you were going for. In which case, two thumbs up.
A translation you really won’t get anywhere else. WhyNot should win a medal to the head for this.
Another example of WhyNot’s great writing skills.
Visual grade: C+ (my standards always win when it comes to the limbo)
Script grade: D
Overall grade: D+
Not particularly impressive or enjoyable, this release is notable only for its inability to match FBI’s. Though WhyNot tends to release this faster than FBI, the script is poorly written and doesn’t even come close to giving the group a favorable imprint on the show. It’s best to wait for FBI on this one.
