Another fantastic “fansub” release.

Script Comparisons:

I can save you the time and tell you there really aren’t any. Well, actually, there are some…





Why would you change the formal, polite “Understood” into “Yes”? You’re sacrificing character for no reason at all.





I hate you, Tsuki. I hate you so, so much.





Why the fuck would you untranslate this?

The karaoke’s mediocre, but at least it’s not a visual affront like Commie’s and WhyNot’s Free! releases were.


If you’re willing to sacrifice script quality for karaoke and typesetting, this is probably the fanrip you want. But I can’t say it’s worth waiting for this pathetic effort by Tsuki.

So fansubbing: dead as a doornail?

Dark_Sage says:

You hit the nail on the head.

Justaway says:

Crunchyroll is still okay.

Nyangoro says:


I can just imagine them sitting around, saying, “Lol, Crunchyroll, there’s no space in that word. Don’t you know English?”

And that just kinda makes it all the better.

Solaristics says:

Lul, so many disqualifications lately. Too bad CR doesn’t typeset/Make font look better (Half the time it’s shit.) Otherwise, I’d go with them.

Ryuk says:

Great way to start the season, “fansubs.”

stgmefly says:

CR typesetting/karaoke when

Anon says:

Once CR does this, fansubbing with truly be dead.

It can’t come soon enough.

stgmefly says:

Can’t forget the occasional trolling

Mass says:

hopefully never, because fuck that shit and everything about it.

Enz says:

This season must be a delight for D_S to “review”. It’s like the various groups are screwing up on purpose, only to be mentioned on this website. That should tell you something, D_S.

Dark_Sage says:

I’d find it funny if it weren’t so sad.

Akatsukin says:

I wish I had something clever to say here, but I just don’t. CR is killing fansubbing slowly but surely. They still can’t hold a candle to a solid fansub, but with 17 simulcasted shows and counting this season (including latecasts, but not other sites like Daisuki), nobody wants to waste the effort to sub when barely anybody will watch. Personally, I went with UTW over CR last season for Gargantia, but just looking at the numbers on Nyaa, despite UTW being such a well known group HS still beats it in overall downloads. If something doesn’t change soon, what little ground we have left will completely crumble away.

rarely_upset says:

So what you’re saying is we’ll have excuses to be really lazy

Aru says:

Don’t forget about actual subscribers. But I think the sole reason why UTW was outnumbered here is because the CR sub came first.

Etoce says:

I wonder what the details of CR’s licensing deals are like. Given how many people donated just to UTW, it’s not inconceivable that we could have a kickstarter-funded “get license for English-language distribution and let whatever group wants to do it do it” system. Someone would just have to convince the right people.

Then again, maybe most people actually prefer CR…

Solaristics says:

Nope. Unless they were to change the fonts that is. I hate the shadowy black borders/black borders behind it on the video.

Anonymous says:

The border is a bit thick, but at least the text isn’t yellow. That’s the other industry “standard” for subs that are more “readable”.

[Did you want to go around?]

> I hate you, Tsuki. I hate you so, so much.

diablosfiji says:

Hey Darksage, I love this anime, I have downloaded the Tsuki version, but I am not happy with the quality of the SUBS, what would you recommend? Please help me.

Dark_Sage says:

Suck it up. You don’t have a choice since no one else is doing the show.

corocoro says:

The core question here is: did they make the CR script worse? It’s within their abilities, and since you likely compared the two to find out if it’s worth reviewing…

diablosfiji says:

Sad :'(

Dark_Sage says:

I went over that in the review.

corocoro says:

That was like, two months ago. I can’t even remember what I read two days ago. :p
