Inside is also a few notes on [Dmon/FFF] Minami-ke Tadaima or whatever it’s called.
This review was almost canceled for the same reason why I canceled the requested Minami-ke Tadaima review. Both of these releases used the same source script, which was JK’s (Evetaku/Gotwoot joint). For Minami-ke, both DmonHiro and FFFpeeps used UTW’s base script, and skimming through it showed that there weren’t any major issues or changes. That’s not the case here.
Because these are both using the same base script, the review has a bit of a different format. I will go through things that are the same, then things that are different. For the screenshots, the first presented will be AtoZ, and the second will be NFP.

Things that are the same
Neither group modified my karaoke.
Neither group fixed the missing punctuation at the end of the second-to-last line.
to -> for
Two options here. Either show that you’re emphasizing “are” by italicising it or contract to “You’re”. Right now, it looks overly formal. Granted, it’s an official talking, but I think she’d be a bit too panicked to speak this formally.
Needs a possessive in there.
> Evacuation of Blue Island’s residents complete.
The enemy. You need a quantifier here.
Things that aren’t the same
a crash landing.
so long as -> as long as
NFP didn’t have the preview.
She’s sitting at the table already. Carry -> bring.
And here’s where the major issues begin. See, I decided the main dialogue font for JK’s release. Since we went with using the o-with-a-bar-over-it instead of ‘ou’ or ‘oh’, we had to have a font that supported it. That was the main reason why I chose Candara as the dialogue font. But these guys decided to pick their own font. That’s perfectly fine, as its their release. But you have to make sure that you either change the script to work with the font or pick a font that works with the script.
Who dares to disturb my research?!
And here I thought the font issue wouldn’t cause too many more problems…
But it really does.
Many, many problems.
tl;dr: NFP are incompetent. Go with AtoZ. (Also, if not for the font issue, I wouldn’t have bothered with this review.)
