Ah, I love the start of a season. There’s so much content to post!

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.

Now they’re even invading our fishing grounds!

We’ve already hit hard times because of salt damage.
Not to mention, they’re saying they won’t do the Ofunehiki.

Nyanko :: We heard that Manaka got fished up!
They trespass in our fishing spots,
and steal our farm-raised fish too!
Our lives are hard enough with all the salt damage!
Then they even have the gall to say they’re not doing the Sending!

Underwater-Vivid :: I heard Manaka got fished up!

I did watch it with Nyanko, but I didn’t expect the result here to be so lopsided.

I don’t see how that happened tbh

returnity says:

It’s pretty much inarguable that familiary evinces bias in these types of evaluations, even if the experienced subject is aware of said bias.

I try to do these things before I watch the show for this reason, but I also watch multiple releases of the first episode if there’s any question of who’s doing it best.

Looking back at those three it seems that for #1 they are all bland, and for #3 they all suck.

Watched it with Underwater-Vivid. I’m not entirely satisfied with their work but if I had to choose a group out of these three then I’d choose them in a heartbeat.

Btw, that woman was Hikari’s mother? I thought she was his elder sister.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh, did I guess wrong? Aight, changed.

mianghuei says:

Definitely elder sister. The way he called her “Akari”.

Ahahaha, surprise. It was close, though, with U-V. Expanded 7 is one of the few places I think Nyanko really screwed up. It just might be a little significant that Hikari’s dad is the Chief Priest, no? They shouldn’t have left that out.

CR subs = failsubs. What is with some of the things they put as dialogue? These are middle-schoolers, FFS. “It’s like a saran-wrapped convenience store bento.”? REALLY?

I’ve got to say CR has the most literal translation with a good natural style in English.
It suprised me how bad Nyanko and Underwater-Vivid were. They weren’t literal but the translation still didn’t flow as well as CRs.
