Disappointment: the anime.

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 :: That’s right! I lost the election to become president!
I figured I could contribute to my old school somehow, so I became the Vice President.

Vivid :: That’s right. I lost in the presidential elections.
But I still wanted to contribute to my school, so I took up the post of vice president,
only for the president to walk all over me whenever anything went wrong.
Or even when nothing went wrong!

I…
I find that president…
irresistibly unforgivable!

It’s my win!

Expanded 6.

Okay, guess I gotta explain the joke on this one. Moe, in addition to its general meaning of “attractively cute”, can also mean “burning”. That’s why she plays cute — because it’s playing off the double understanding of “moe”, making it technically also a fire attack. Hilarious, I know.

For the scene, in between Kenji’s rejection and the next line, she acts all defeated, but then springs back to life. So that’s where the second part comes in.

Vivid :: That’s right. I lost in the presidential elections.
But I still wanted to contribute to my school, so I took up the post of vice president,
only for the president to walk all over me whenever anything went wrong.
Or even when nothing went wrong!
She dug her heels right into me!

I find that president…
irresistibly unforgivable!

Okay, guess I gotta explain the joke on this one. Moe, in addition to its general meaning of “attractively cute”, can also mean “burning”. That’s why she plays cute — because it’s playing off the double understanding of “moe”, making it technically also a fire attack. Hilarious, I know.

For the scene, in between Kenji’s rejection and the next line, she acts all defeated, but then springs back to life. So that’s where the second part comes in.

Pretty mixed. m.3.3.w’s was a lazy edit, but I felt Vivid tried way too hard on some of the lines.

m33w and HS hardly had any differences and both were overall good enough so… couldn’t go wrong with either I guess.

Fuwaa says:

I couldn’t get past “Kazama Party” for a gang, and I checked and sure enough the one group that didn’t use “party” used “fire elemental” on an obvious pokemon reference.

I’m just glad I wasn’t going to watch this show anyway.

Nevreen says:

You haven’t watched the show, but it’s an obvious Pokemon reference. Right.

Hint: Your interpreting CR’s line as a Pokemon reference doesn’t magically make it one.

jimmy says:

Double hint: it’s not a Pokémon reference.

Chalk pusher, huh? That’s a new one.

>Chalk pusher
Not the first time I’ve seen that turn of phrase. I *think* it was in the official release of AzuDaioh way back when. Could be wrong though.
