I ain’t saying this anime makes me want to wear a chastity belt, because that would be a weird thing to say.

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.

she acts all snotty and treats me like garbage—a total turnoff!

Yes, more of this. It’s a good way to check the flow, since the “Hngh… I… // You what? // I need to… // You need to? // I need to go to the bathroom!” bullshit ain’t exactly giving you any insight into how the groups write lines.

Yes, more of this. It’s a good way to check the flow, since the “Hngh… I… // You what? // I need to… // You need to? // I need to go to the bathroom!” bullshit ain’t exactly giving you any insight into how the groups write lines.

But I’m probably going to be waiting for BDs on this show anyway, I heard the censoring was pretty bad.

Most of my choices were either Doutei or both HS and scribbles.

He might have trolled in the IRC using my username yesterday, but, no, I’m not him. But honestly, I came from Hadena, was a staff there, and I’m not that good at grammars either.

Would you care to explain why you’re “translating” into English if you don’t even know how to use it properly?

shi0nmaku says:

That’s easy, because I want to?
And everyone still got their mistakes. Next time, I’ll get an editor.

Dark_Sage says:

That would be a very good idea.

shi0nmaku says:

Actually, someone wanted to edit my scripts, but after looking at the schedules of both teams, we gave up. When I’m awake, they’re asleep, there goes my editors…

hunta says:

I dunno about that being a problem. Over in the ru-sub community I work on a “translate while the editor is asleep or at work, edit while the translator is asleep, merge in the one hour both are awake” schedule. Works out fine.

FalseDawn says:

I watched the CR version too, so ended up with them winning out (or horriblesubs, if you’d rather). But while doing this, I realised that the scribbles version is only a light edit of the CR script, with a lot of the lines staying either the same or only a slight word change. Just thought it worth pointing out, though I guess it doesn’t really make much difference now that original TLs like Doutei’s are a rarity.

Anon says:

Huh, I didn’t know Doutei did an original TL. I mean, it seems plenty competent and overall better than the HS script, but I thought it was just a good editor. Didn’t think anyone would bother putting effort into a simulcasted show anymore.

Stopped a few lines in and voted for the worst line in each, confirming my suspicion that one group was doing them all. Expanded 9 has scribbles using punctuation in a way that doesn’t make me want to bang someone’s head against a wall, so I’m going with them.

first time doing this… what should I choose? :/

Dark_Sage says:

scribbles. You liked the lines in their release significantly more than Doutei’s, and you really should not download anything shi0n.

For HorribleSubs vs scribbles… The scribbles release is a Crunchyroll edit, so you’re getting the same base translation, with the benefits of the original lines being edited (ideally) to make them better. You also get the standard fansub benefits of chapters/typesetting/karaoke that you won’t get with HorribleSubs. It’s a pretty clear-cut choice for you in this case.

thanks… downloading the scribbles sub version~

Pacific_Eos says:

T.S.T.?! Transportation Security Thigh-ministration? Is this a new security measure to follow the mandatory strip-search? And I thought an underwear bomber was the worst we could fear.
Apparently, TST is short for teisoutai (貞操帯), Japanese for chastity belt. The term should be translated, but if you need color, then make something up like “Masterblocker” or “Venus Bound℠.”

My first vote had scribbles & HS tied, but Doutei had most of the un-tied winning lines so I did a runoff, cutting some slack for “T.S.T.”:
Doutei: 11 times
HorribleSubs: 2 times
scribbles: 8 times
shi0n: 0 times
Looks like your best bet is Doutei

The difference is greater than the numbers indicate. While scribbles (and HS somewhat) reads smooth, Doutei had far more standout lines. The only question is, “Am I really going to watch this show?”.

“Overall scores…

For me, all of them are bad, I think. Some are too formal and other too imformal for the situations, and most all of them are not contextualized.

waiting for scribbles is kind a pain in the ass (can’t find any update after they released the 4th episode)… maybe I should just pick doutei in the first place… :/
