Opening. Muted karaoke fits a muted OP. Good choice, EveTaku.

Rating: Good.

Ending. Usually I’ll only label karaoke as great if a group does something out of the ordinary that makes me really think of karaoke of as an artform. But here, EveTaku merely had to match every expectation I had. The colors perfectly matched every scene and the kfx only provided value to the font and color scheme. Fantastic job.

Rating: Great.

Solid, solid typesetting. Everything was done that needed to be, even the ridiculous maps.

I would hope not.

[EveTaku] Coppelion 02v2 [720p-Hi10P] [FFC73170].mkv_snapshot_22.09_[2013.10.21_23.28.46]

I think you mean “broken”.



Main Script.

[EveTaku] Coppelion 02v2 [720p-Hi10P] [FFC73170].mkv_snapshot_00.19_[2013.10.21_22.41.01]

As opposed to another wolf shooting it?

[EveTaku] Coppelion 02v2 [720p-Hi10P] [FFC73170].mkv_snapshot_00.36_[2013.10.21_22.44.30]

Resistance to what? Yeah, I know Japan censored the script, but you can play along without writing like your brain’s been replaced by a tumor.

“Our bodies have a strong resistance to this environment.”

Don’t. Do. This.

lol z. It’s called spellcheck, morons. Aegisub has it built in.

Gotta love arbitrary capitalization standards.

[EveTaku] Coppelion 02v2 [720p-Hi10P] [FFC73170].mkv_snapshot_09.54_[2013.10.21_21.50.26]

Why didn’t you translate “ダテ”?

[EveTaku] Coppelion 02v2 [720p-Hi10P] [FFC73170].mkv_snapshot_11.56_[2013.10.21_22.54.07] [EveTaku] Coppelion 02v2 [720p-Hi10P] [FFC73170].mkv_snapshot_11.59_[2013.10.21_22.54.14]

Don’t, use commas, for every, pause, in a, sentence.

[EveTaku] Coppelion 02v2 [720p-Hi10P] [FFC73170].mkv_snapshot_14.08_[2013.10.21_23.21.40]

I, uhh… Did you mean “heart”?

Most children do.

Excuse me, but what?





Watchability: Watchable.

Visual grade: A

Script grade: C+

Overall grade: B

The visuals are this release’s saving grace, which is a shame because I expected the script to be a lot better than it was.

Up next, we’ll see how Anime-Koi and Vivid handled this show. But first…! Sleep!

The Japanese censored the script? How?

imouto says:

No direct mentions of the nuclear disaster/radiation, which were present in the original. Clear implicit mentions though, like “The Coffin”.

raingod says:

Is this series any good? I don’t have any anime in my watch list. Walking Dead and Agents of Shield on top. Any suggestions, D_S?

Kamica says:

Nah. Coppelion is terrible. Pick any other show airing this season at random and you’ll get something better 95% of the time.

Dark_Sage says:

I don’t know if the odds are that good, but you’re right, it’s not a great series.

Ash says:

I like it. It doesn’t have the best plot or characters, but it’s pretty good and the concept itself is decent. It’s also very pretty to look at and has a great voice cast.

FalseDawn says:

“Compromize” looks like a non-American trying to American and failing.

Pelfmiester says:

Won’t be keeping up too well with these reviews. Wake me up when you get to a show that matters.

Dark_Sage says:

The poll should kick into effect Wednesday. Estimate 1.5 reviews/day and check the review queue to see how many groups are doing shit, then you can find the next time to check the site.

XiaYixuan says:

Awesome! Looking forward to it.

Abby_enon says:

>asked that you keep doing your best

AnimeNOW says:

Only 8 comments? Need more controversy!

SomeLoser says:

Coppelion shot JFK!

Jeffrey-sama says:

Well… I suck. ;___;
