Translation Party: [Baka-Chi vs. Commie vs. FTW vs. HorribleSubs] Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren (Episode 01)

Fansub Review, Translation Party — By on January 11, 2014 6:26 am

Since the series is mostly known for its “person says something crazy, other person plays the straight man” dialogue, that’s pretty much what this party’s gonna focus on. So expect slightly longer than usual comparisons.

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.

We were talking about that in the chat the other day. The reason groups avoided that is because in Japanese high school it’s only three years, and the general localization for those years is freshman, junior, and senior year. Sophomore is often skipped.

HorribleSubs: 9 times

Anyone that blatantly mistranslates 邪王真眼 as “Wicked Lord Shingan” after an entire season of examples of how to get it right shouldn’t be working on this show.

Looks like I’ll be waiting for and downloading the Commie subs, especially since they’re also the ones who do all the creative “death” translations for Deko’s DESU lines.
