Translation Party: [Hatsuyuki vs. HorribleSubs vs. NSOnii] Free! (Episode 01)

Fansub Review, Translation Party — By on July 8, 2013 1:51 am

Asenshi dropped their plans to sub this and I’m not aware of any other groups interested in the show. …which means TL Party time. Ladies, contain yourselves.

Translation Party House Rules:

Spoiler:
1. Translation Parties are intended to help you make the best subtitle choice for a given anime. Choose which line(s) you liked best by selecting them with the checkbox.

2. I split the Party into two parts — Essential and Extended. Assuming you want to get this shit over with quickly, just go with the Essential choices. I picked these to be the most representative lines in the releases. But if you’re one of those people who want more comparisons to help you come to a decision, go with the Essential choices and the Extended ones.

3. If you didn’t like any of the lines, choose the “N/A” option. The results for “N/A” won’t be automatically tabulated, so you’ll have to do the math in your head. Have my gomens and nasais.

4. A “>” indicates that another character has begun speaking. If there are three characters in a line comparison, I will indicate the third with a “>>” and so on for more characters.

5. Group order is randomized for each screenshot, every time you refresh the page. However, the “N/A” option will always appear at the bottom of the screen.

6. Your results will be summed up when you click the “Get your results” button. Feel free to vote in the poll at the end/post in the comments to let others know how you did and to compare your results with them.

7. Party hard.

Well, that’s really surprising. I actually assumed the fuckups I saw were from that group.

Actually, after checking the spoilered stuff, plenty of the more obvious fuckups were from Hatsuyuki… I guess I just thought they phrased other lines better.

Fansubbing, huh.

Dark_Sage says:

Yup. Just wait till the DxD party. You’ll long for shitty HorribleSubs edits.

temp_late says:

Hm, FFF’s page says ep 1 was backup edited, and it certainly seemed like that for plenty of lines. Maybe it’s not a proper indicator of future releases?

If the others have issues, maybe whoever’s supposed to be editing for FFF will swoop in and save the day? I hope.

No says:

They knew D_S wouldn’t judge them on eps 1 and thus figured anything goes?

Yuyu says:

Do you seriously think fansub groups consider D_S’s reviews habits when working on a show?

GuyFox says:

Do you seriously think fansub groups consider D_S’s reviews?

Dark_Sage says:

Considering how even the people who hate me read this site religiously, yes.

GuyFox says:

well u caught me

Dark_Sage says:

Why wouldn’t they? It probably doesn’t consume their lives, but reviews are a reflection of the quality of fansubbers’ work. Who wouldn’t want to make sure the work that’s reviewed is the highest quality it can be?

And yes, reputation matters in the fansub game. It’s about the only thing that does, since the days of comparing download counts as brag material are long gone.

You can’t talk, you’ve literally put out nothing but hadena tier attempts at trying to ‘fit in with the scene’.

Also happy belated 18th birthday James.

I mean, my old ‘HS Edits’ didn’t change anything but remove some /n and /move everywhere.
