Translation Party: [HorribleSubs vs. Oyatsu-Kaylith vs. UTW] White Album 2 (Episode 01)

Fansub Review, Translation Party — By on October 10, 2013 10:47 pm

For those of you new to Crymore, posts can be rather infrequent. Luckily, I think this will be the only rough patch in the month of October. Expect more fun tomorrow.

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.

HorribleSubs :: Haruki, what did you come here to accomplish?
>I came here to stop you from steamrolling her, of course.
>Did you forget that the school fair is supposed to be fun?

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: Haruki! What the hell did you come here for?!
>Obviously to prevent you guys from forcing her into anything.
>Chikashi, the school festival is still just a festival.
>You understand that, don’t you?

UTW :: Haruki!
You know what you’re here to do, right?

HorribleSubs :: And next to this room is Music Room 2.
This classroom is for private practices,
and it’s only used by the top students.
It’s nothing but a target of jealousy for the normal students,
but I have no problem with the elite student who practices piano there.

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: And then there’s music room 2 just next door.
Also used exclusively by the music stream,
it’s a personal practice room
which only the most talented students are allowed to use.
In the eyes of students in the standard stream,
it’s only there to make them jealous.
As for me, I have no problem with that elite student who’s always playing the piano there.

UTW :: As for Music Room Two, it’s the room right next door.
It’s reserved for the best music student alone to use as a private practice room.
For us students in the normal program, it’s nothing but a symbol of envy,
but if you ask me,
I don’t dislike the elite student who’s always practicing his piano there at all.

N/A :: N/A. They all suck.

HorribleSubs :: I bet Takeya’s started another fight,
and you were busy cleaning up the mess?
>How is it you can speak the truth as if you saw it happen?
‘Cause that’s what every day is like for you guys.

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: I bet Takeya’s up to no good again,
and you’re pulling out all the stops to clean up after him.
>How are you able to describe it as though you stood there and watched?
The two of you have always been like this.

UTW :: So Takeya started yet another dispute,
and you were running around trying to clean up his mess, right?
>Whoa, it’s like you actually saw it happen.
What can I say? That’s how you guys are every day.

HorribleSubs :: Once I realized how hard the committee was trying…
I felt kind of bad.
Like I was responsible.

Like it’s my fault.

UTW :: When I realized how hard the committee was working, I felt kind of bad…
like I should be more responsible.

HorribleSubs :: One Saturday near the end of November,
on the second day of Houjou University High’s school fair,
the three of us experienced the moment when we were closest.
Our happiest, most fun moment.
And…
The last moment the three of us could truly be together.

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: A certain Saturday near the end of November.
On the second day of the Houjou University Affiliated High School Festival
the three of us experienced a moment where we were closer than anyone else.
A fun, joyous moment.
However…
It was also the final moment that the three of us could truly be together.

on the second day of the Houjou Prep School Festival,
the three of us experienced our closest, most enjoyable, and happiest moment.
It was also…

There’s nothing you can do!
You lost your drummer, your bassist, and your keyboardist!

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: I said let go!

HorribleSubs :: No matter what you say now,
for the last two years, you’ve entered the contest and were the undisputed winner.
>That’s…
Saying you regret that is rude to your friends,
who entered you because they wanted more people to know about you,
to all your fans who voted for you,
and to all the people who were happy you won.

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: Regardless of what you say now,
you participated both last year and the year before that.
You were even crowned the overall winner.
>Well, that’s…
If you regret all of that, you’re basically insulting
your friends who nominated you to get everyone to understand you
and all your fans who voted for you,
not to mention those who cheered for you when you won.

UTW :: No matter what you say now,
it doesn’t change the fact that you participated last year and the year before, and won.

HorribleSubs :: An autumn of trials, when the band and the Miss Houjou contest
were in danger of collapse.
But during these sessions, at least, I could enjoy myself for a moment.

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: Between the band and the Miss Houjou Affiliated pageant, this autumn has given rise to all sorts of problems.
Thankfully, these sessions give me just a brief moment of solace.

She’s really good-natured.

>I came here to stop you from steamrolling her, of course.
>Did you forget that the school fair is supposed to be fun?

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: Haruki! What the hell did you come here for?!
>Obviously to prevent you guys from forcing her into anything.

HorribleSubs :: And next to this room is Music Room 2.
This classroom is for private practices,
and it’s only used by the top students.
It’s nothing but a target of jealousy for the normal students,
but I have no problem with the elite student who practices piano there.

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: And then there’s music room 2 just next door.
Also used exclusively by the music stream,
it’s a personal practice room
which only the most talented students are allowed to use.
In the eyes of students in the standard stream,
it’s only there to make them jealous.
As for me, I have no problem with that elite student who’s always playing the piano there.

UTW :: As for Music Room Two, it’s the room right next door.
It’s reserved for the best music student alone to use as a private practice room.
For us students in the normal program, it’s nothing but a symbol of envy,
but if you ask me,
I don’t dislike the elite student who’s always practicing his piano there at all.

and you were busy cleaning up the mess?
>How is it you can speak the truth as if you saw it happen?
‘Cause that’s what every day is like for you guys.

Oyatsu-Kaylith :: I bet Takeya’s up to no good again,
and you’re pulling out all the stops to clean up after him.
>How are you able to describe it as though you stood there and watched?
The two of you have always been like this.

The last moment the three of us could truly be together.

Anon says:

This show is going to be criminally underwatched.

Dark_Sage says:

It’s Japan’s fault for naming it White Album 2. Should’ve gone with an entirely new name.

2ColouredEyes says:

White Album Second Season. Brand new name.

Still waiting for Golden Kouko reviews. Done with FFF’s. Ace no Dia and GG’s #Valerave as well.

Anon says:

Blame the guy who wrote the VN (what is it, 15(?) years later), and used the name to sell a few more copies.

Someone says:

So now LESS copies will be sold of the anime ’cause less people will watch it.

Kamica says:

I kinda half-watched episode 1 because I was doing other things at the same time. Admittedly, I didn’t get much outta the episode. Someone care to give a quick summary of what happened?

(Or I suppose I could rewatch the episode if that makes more sense)

Dark_Sage says:

It’s just a story about some dude who inherits a ninja dojo and recruits a harem of girls to fight against the dude who killed his father and in doing so, find the girl he’ll marry to continue his legacy. The only problem is… *record scratch* he’s a hopeless pervert who’s afraid of sex! White Album 2. Coming now to a Japan near you.

LuneSave says:

I’d tap that.

LuneSave says:

Guy plays guitar in a school band, band disbands. A popular school idol thinking about(i forgot). A professional piano player. A school festival down the pipe. Generic intro to new characters, and snippet of future in the opening scene.

Not necessarily in order. Add 2 cups of angst. Take with a spoon of salt.

I have problem with several UTW lines, but since most of them are great (in my opinion) (I already watched UTW release, so my opinion may be biased) I don’t think those lines matter much to me.

Then UTW it is!

Split between UTW and Horrible…

Normally I always watch CR but this must be a new translator/editor because this episode pissed me off. Way too liberal and reversed name order is distracting. Not sure if it’s enough to switch quite yet though because UTW had some funky lines.

Zilpzalp says:

So wait. Is the Room No 2 for one student only or for thet op students only? I watched UTW and thought it was there only for that one elite student (which would be fucking stupid), but it seems that was wrong.

does anyone know the answer?

It’s later revealed to be for one specific student, but at the time of this episode no one in the school (or at least no one the MC talks to) was actually aware of that, so UTW’s line is kind of wrong there.

Someone says:

Doesn’t the MC say something ambiguous though? Like he said the number one outstanding seito. Not sure if seito is students or just one student. Unless he acted surprised when it’s revealed that it was only for one specific student.
