Okay, you guys caught me. You were right all along; I don’t judge fansub releases based on quality, but rather on how much I like the groups who are subbing the shows. I have attached evidence in this post that will confirm all your suspicions.

 

Biased Against (F-tier to C-tier)

If I have to read another word of this shitty fansub release, I'm gonna shove a dictionary up this group's ass

And those were just the past few seasons. I’m sure you can find more evidence of me basing my reviews solely on groups’ names if you looked further into it.

Somebody help me. I’m out of control. :(

We all know you’re biased d_s
d_s pls

zane says:

fuck off chris

Hairy says:

Why did you only credit one group for some of the joints?

stgmefly says:

Because only one group sucks his biased E-penis

Dark_Sage says:

If the joint was an overall “negative” and I didn’t have a “positive” review in the past few seasons, I didn’t include it, and vice-versa.

I also maxed the number of links per group to 2 positive/2 negative, so that would explain the lack of inclusion for some of the links.

Dark_Sage says:

Also what stgm said.

Qrius says:

Don’t forget you remove the typesetting for the diff comparisons… You are pure evil, you know!

Dark_Sage says:

If there are 6000 lines for typesetting and only 400 lines for the main script, then those groups are giving us 15 times the anime. Can’t argue with that math!

Anon says:

Why did you go through the trouble of make this post as a response to something someone said on the internet? Worse, on nyaa. Oh, Baka_Sage.

Dark_Sage says:

It was a general “response” rather than a directed one. If you think I care that much about Nyaa’s community, you’re out of your mind.

Anon says:

Well, it’s not your first post “not caring” about the Nyaa community. Although, I admit, your last post about Nyaa drama was pretty funny.

Dark_Sage says:

If you want a target this was aimed at, the answer is fansubbers who blame everyone but themselves when they fuck up and claim bias when reviews don’t go their way, while remaining strangely silent about it when they get good grades.

Anon says:

Ok, I guess that seems fair. On the other hand, it may seem like you’re expecting some kind of adulation when you give a positive review, if you put it that way. Everyone’s like that, it’s no use to get so worked up because of this.

Dark_Sage says:

Uhh, no. Why would I want a group that did well to thank me? I’m not that far gone yet.

The point is some people need to show a little more personal responsibility and grow the fuck up. The hypocrisy of “we did great in this one review because we’re smarter and better than everyone” vs “we did poor in this one review because Dark_Sage hates us. Clearly we’re so good that he’s just jealous of us and magically made mistakes appear in our subs.” is what I take issue with.

Hairy says:

Wait, I just noticed something.

Where’s Hadena?

Anon says:

D_S is trying to show good and bad reviews of the same group. Hadena can’t participate for that reason.

Anon says:

Oh, noes! I’m going to commit sudoku, I can’t live anymore.

Hairy says:

Just proves he’s biased against Hadena because he doesn’t give them any good reviews.

What did Hadena do to deserve such treatment?

Anon says:

They tried to fansub.

Dark_Sage says:

Actually, they got a B-tier once. http://www.crymore.net/2012/05/13/fansub-review-hadena-sankarea-episode-04/

It was a day of much confusion and celebration.

Ryuk says:

Why is Oni is in the C-tier to F-tier section AND in the B-tier to A-tier section…

Dark_Sage says:

I dunno, I think I mixed them up with Kaitou. Removed.

stgmefly says:

Commie’s in the b to a tier to
pls fix ur bias

Fred C Dobbs says:

Crymore.net: Come for the bias; stay for the snark!™

kokujin-kun says:

Fail everyone, problem solved!

Dark_Sage says:

Equality for all!

BiriBiri says:

Dark Sage is based confirmed.

Ryuk says:

Mfw Oni’s the only group that didn’t make it in both the sections and only in the B to A-tier section. ( ¬‿¬)

Black Ace says:

Oni devs please ( ¬‿¬)

Enamelthyst says:

So basically, every group on this list is of interchangeable quality?

AzureHakua says:

You’re biased? Well shit.

2CE says:

Haven’t read
> Fansub Review: [UTW] Danganronpa the Animation (Episode 02)
yet. Is it a ‘biased’ based review also? Or did you (read: Dark_Sage) received some $ from the almost 4,000 raised dollars? Thanks in advance.

Anon says:

D_S is the sole reason a donation drive was held in the first place. Why else would UTW have all As so far this season?

cautr says:

Maybe for quality, then again we’ll never know. He’s biased after all.

Anon says:

Why would he need to? He made tens of thousands of dollars in his own donation drive.

returnity says:

Huehuehue. Bias is inherent in human subjectivity, but I’m glad to see issue of corruption and intentional bias, which gets raised repeatedly, being put to rest.

diablosfiji says:

Does it even matter, I have read Dark Sages reviews, I have mixed responses to some of his reviews whereas in other cases his arguments are totally justified. He is human, at times he could become partial to a particular FanSub group, that does not mean his reviews are not fun to read, it also allows be decide which group is doing a better job myself. You are doing a great job DS, just seems like there are room for improvements.

diablosfiji says:

Darksage, I love Shingeki no Kyojin, but I am sadly tired of downloading and deleting episodes because the subs are so poor, could you please tell me a Fansub you would recommend for SNK.

Much Thanks.

Dark_Sage says:

EveTaku. Among all the fansubs, they scored the highest on my scale and kokujin-kun’s.

Do note the review summary is incredibly useful.

corocoro says:

Actually, Koku placed CrunchyRoll higher, which you didn’t review.
So Asenshi it is, I guess.

Dark_Sage says:

CR is a fansub now?

corocoro says:

Asenshi is and they’re working on the BDs, using a script based on the subtitles that come with the rips done by HorribleSubs. Or maybe they’re ripping the scripts directly from CrunchyRoll, though I somewhat doubt it.

Are we done arguing semantics now?

Dark_Sage says:

We’ll never be done arguing semantics. It is the way of things.

Anonymous says:

Not much of a fansub if it’s not their script.
