[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_01.30_[2013.09.11_20.50.31]

OP. Yes, the official lyrics weren’t out when they did this song by ear, and for that reason I’m willing to be understanding. But come on, the line they guessed here doesn’t even make sense in Japanese.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_22.17_[2013.09.11_22.21.54]

ED. They did a pretty good job with it, but this could also use a little fix-me-up from the official lyrics. For example, the “gangan” here is actually supposed to be “Gun! Gun!” Also, too, I lucked out in getting this karaoke effect for the ED, the one where they don’t allow you to read every syllable in a line at the same time.

Main Script.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_00.43_[2013.09.11_20.39.28]


Jingi Naki Furaggusen is actually parodying the title of the yakuza film series Jingi Naki Tatakai. However, I’m thinking they didn’t want to make a riff off the (sigh) official translation of the title and go with “Capture the Flag Without Honor or Humanity” because the name wouldn’t fit in the space provided.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_02.52_[2013.09.11_21.01.49][Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_02.52_[2013.09.11_21.01.58]

Hah, thought you could sneak that past us, didn’t ya, Anime-Koi? I also got a whole bunch of other things to say about that offending mask, but I’ll just limit myself to saying at least clip it at the black border.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_03.30_[2013.09.11_21.05.25]

Kami wo shibaru would just mean “tie one’s hair,” and indeed, in the following sequence of hairstyles, there were only one or two that counts as “putting up” the hair.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_04.14_[2013.09.11_21.15.04]

I like how they rendered the objection against the appeal to atatte kudakemashou (“Let’s go down shooting” in A-K’s release). That phrase means “take chances” or “go for broke” in normal use, but since it contains the intransitive verb kudakeru (to get smashed), it’s a non-starter for Blondie.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_04.19_[2013.09.11_21.17.34]

Here, Yurara suggests atatte hajikeru, which would literally mean “hit them and explode” as opposed to the “hit them and get smashed” that the previous suggestion (atatte kudakemashou) implies. But since the literal translation sounds idiotic, all the groups had to play around and do a little script writing with this line, with this particular one leaning towards the “meh” territory.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_09.44_[2013.09.11_21.49.34]

Yep, whenever subbers hear the word tsuyoi, they immediately write down “strong” whether or not it makes any goddamn sense. Just use “good,” as in “That chess team is good!” or something in the similar vein.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_10.19_[2013.09.11_21.51.37]

I like the added spite they put in this line.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_15.51_[2013.09.11_22.03.55]

So, you’re in a war zone and your commander has just given you an order. How do you respond, soldier?

This didn’t need to be typeset. The name of the show is already in the filename after all.

[Anime-Koi] Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-bu - 03 [h264-720p][B3E734E0].mkv_snapshot_05.59_[2013.09.11_21.35.28]

I guess this can’t be helped.


Final Grade: A

Despite the fact that they didn’t translate a portion of a sign which only contained sentence fragments anyway, I didn’t see any real mistakes as far as I can tell. They also did a good job in keeping the script flowing smoothly despite all the Blank-chan-senpais that came our way.

Ah kokujin-kun, just one note… I was having problem with the font logo so I skipped it for that episode only and then I redesigned the font from the scratch. This is how it looks now:

kokujin-kun says:

Oh yeah, I saw D_S’s post a little too late and was wondering if it wasn’t my fault the logo didn’t show up.

stgmefly says:

Are you saying this commie is the best commie for my commie??

sandoe41 says:

Watched episode 11 just a little while ago, they haven’t changed the lyrics at all from what you pointed out here.

kokujin-kun says:

I’m sure they’ll change it for the batch ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌

TLC -> M.I.A.
picking the right release/group for C3 is nothing but right. awesome job.

kokujin-kun says:

In terms of translation quality, the competition *is* pretty stiff, imo.

Layton says:

We use close caption from TBS station for the translation check, and I believe we put cc [close caption] tag for that in the posts.

2ColouredEyes says:

There’s 0% of offence mixed with my comment, really. So here’s to apologize if it sounded otherwise.

The reason why TLC resulted to M.I.A. is because, when I see you guys made the post/release, I just get the torrent and download due to anticipation/excitement lol. But I do read who’s behind the release. Thus, making me post the Staff here. And it is obviously my fault that I did not notice or perhaps forgot about the cc tag.

There’s a good bearing for doing this kind of thing, I believe. And that is knowing who the guys are (if they are the same people behind a really good title, I will not regret going with their product)

2ColouredEyes says:

oh! also, I’d like to use this opportunity to make a request for you guys to consider Kill La Kill :)

returnity says:

I’d like to thank koku for this review, and also take a moment to note that wwhen we realized that “rise up shooting” line was going to be a recurring catchphrase, we revised it. In later episodes it’s changed, and the batch script for this episode reads:

Let’s go down in a blaze of glory!
> We can’t go down!
>> How about we go in guns blazing?
