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.

Essential 2.

Gotta love exposition via characters who are so mentally fucked they have to recite the profiles of everyone they meet. “This is the baker: he bakes the bread I eat. I love the baker.”

Come on Japan, you can do better than this.

Anime-Koi :: Yumihara Hina.
She’s a returnee from abroad,
who came back to Japan in April and enrolled at this high school.
That’s all I know,
but she keeps acting kind of cold towards me, or maybe stiff and formal.
Did I do something to her?

HorribleSubs :: Hina Yumihara.
She’s a returnee from abroad,

Watakushi :: Yumihara Hina.
She returned to Japan in April, so she’s a returnee, who entered this school.
I don’t know the details, but I’d say she’s a bit cold towards me, or distant, rather.
Did I do anything bad to her?

And then Aoba got it in his head to come here, too.

We were in the Basketball Club in middle school,

Anime-Koi :: He’s good at basketball, don’t you think?
In middle school, we were on the same basketball team.
But I ended up getting injured.
I picked this school,

And then Aoba got it in his head to come here, too.

Nice.

So what you’re basically saying is HS/CR is beating all the fansubbers this season.

RIP Crymore reviews.

Yes. But don’t worry, reviews will continue.

2014 – Every browser supports native vorbis playback. Why you still waste your time with shit external .mp3 player (is sounds bad)? Just out of curiosity

Dark_Sage says:

I went with mp3 because that’s what the extension I found works with. If you have a different format preference, do let me know, but also realize I need a WordPress extension for it since WordPress does not properly support audio playback natively.

I edited A-K version so no surprise, but I wasn’t necessarily happy with some of the changes I made, though I did like some of them. Also, I was told that this was an original TL, but it ended up being a “FUNi” edit to my surprise when I decided to compare the scripts. I was pretty annoyed when I compared the scripts side by side later on. Anyways, episode 2+ will be original so I’ll be ready to get teared apart.

Godcore says:

Top lel. You “should of” just stuck to being a leecher.

Torn apart*. Whatever, I make simple mistakes as well, or am I to assume that you don’t either?

Usually with results that close I’d just go with HS, but it’s a Funi rip, isn’t it? I guess Anime-Koi isn’t so bad.

Yep, Funi rip.

FML. But hey, that means I don’t have to watch this shitty show with equally shitty subs, doesn’t it?

It’s like they’re doing you a favor. Well done, translation teams!

Draze says:

Maybe the work of commie fansub should be added here?

Solaristics says:

Too late for that now. Since he did this before Commie even said anything about doing the show, they won’t be added. He’ll just do a normal review (If he even gets to it.)
