I really need to stop starting reviews at night and leaving them for Future_Sage to deal with. Motivation drops rapidly with rest.

Visual Review


[t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_04_[720p][C21378C1].mkv_snapshot_01.23_[2014.02.11_21.35.48] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_04_[720p][C21378C1].mkv_snapshot_01.33_[2014.02.11_21.36.07]

Opening. It’s colorful, which I like. But the kfx feels ineffective and the colors don’t match the lines. Just look at the second screen. Goddamn.

Rating: Okay-.

[t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_22.24_[2014.02.11_22.02.29] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_23.05_[2014.02.11_18.52.20]

Ending. The color scheme matches up with the very end of the ED, which doesn’t do it much favors for the other parts of the ED, but at least the theme made sense.

Rating: Okay.




There’s a bunch of signs, so I spoilered ’em.

They tried. But with translations like “Large-breasted birthing figure”, maybe they should have tried harder.





Script Review



If you wanted us to read this in the time allotted, you should have made it readable in the time allotted.

But forget the timing, the whole ED is fucked from an English standpoint. Well, mostly the second half, but I’ll include it all here:

Yes, curry is my favorite food.
If I’m allowed to state my desire,
I want the mild curry.
Whether it’s sticky or anything else,
I can eat it with no problem.
(I can’t handle that.)
My appearance is slightly petite,
but even so I can be a reliable sister in law.
(Stretching your back)
Cooking, cleaning and laundry, I can do them all.
Plus I’m the type who has an easy time doing labor.
(you’re troubled about it though)
Even though at home you were completely different…
What kind of brainwashing technique is this?
(Oh my, you’re being jealous)
Making excuses like saying it’s a failure…
And now cheekily saying you have to go!
When we become close friends and have to open up to each other,
I wonder if we’ll be able to understand the vague things.
Well, things like snacks are childish.
Even so, will you always be kind to me?

QUALITY stuff, innit?



Main Script.

[t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_00.16_[2014.02.11_14.06.39] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_00.18_[2014.02.11_14.06.45]

“I was hoping to take a pic in more natural light, but I suppose they’re just pajamas. Guess I can’t do much about it now anyway.”

Well look at that. The lines didn’t need to be as stale as the cunts who wrote them.


“still”? She said nothing about Benio acting calm earlier.


Sister. Capitalized.

[t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_00.40_[2014.02.11_14.08.10] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_00.43_[2014.02.11_14.27.37]

[t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_01.15_[2014.02.11_14.29.08] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_01.18_[2014.02.11_14.29.15]

And I take it this release’s editor is a high school never went.


you’ve been -> you’re

Watch the show, you fucktards.

[t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_02.58_[2014.02.11_18.09.34] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_03.00_[2014.02.11_18.09.40]

Drink DEET, t.3.3.d.


would -> will

What is it with ESLs and failing at tenses?


How does one put a facade?

[t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_06.45_[2014.02.11_18.16.43] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_06.48_[2014.02.11_18.16.25] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_06.49_[2014.02.11_18.16.51]

If this is what you guys do to Crunchyroll scripts, I fear for society if you ever decide to adopt.


What? No. Chome are district subdivisions, not fucking ZIP codes. Hell, Japan has ZIP codes too. Good gods.


Based on the character interactions in the scene, this is supposed to be funny.

Hakuya: Mashiro asked me to pick up something.
Kobeni: Dry fermented soy beans…
Kobeni: Oh, to help her get used to them?
Hakuya: Something sweet, too.
Kobeni: Honey?!
Hakuya: Is that bad?
Kobeni: Yes, it is.
Hakuya: Then condensed milk…
Kobeni: Don’t worry about it! I’ll figure something out!

I can hardly contain my lulz. And by lulz, I mean vomit.


>”just now”

Oh so close.

[t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_15.40_[2014.02.12_18.44.12] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_15.43_[2014.02.12_18.44.20]

Two separate groups had to sign off on this. Goddamn.


This is Benio. What the fuck are you retards doing?

The line makes no sense as a goddamn insult, so just substitute it with another term that reflects well on older women.

loli old lady -> loli MILF

You had her use “mai waifu” so don’t fucking whine about scriptwriting now.

[t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_19.30_[2014.02.12_19.09.40] [t.3.3.d]_Mikakunin_de_Shinkoukei_-_05_[720p][57C9B36F].mkv_snapshot_19.34_[2014.02.12_19.10.01]

You guys should look into the self-harm scene. I don’t want y’all to die, I just want you to hate yourselves as much as I hate you.


“So why did she bother to use the transit system to get here?”

Yeah. Not “normal transport”.




No! Nobody pitching a product would fucking pimp it like this. What the fucking shit, t.3.3.d?





Watchability: Watchable.

Visual grade: B-

Script grade: D+

Overall grade: C-

The script is worse than dealing with Christians. Avoid.

pengu says:

Is Underwater better? I’ve been watching this release until episode 5, but I guess I won’t have to wait for them anymore. Underwater is much faster anyway.

Dark_Sage says:

Yes. They had some similar issues with various lines in their 05 release, but I decided to review their 06 since it was out last night when I checked and I was gonna watch the episode anyway.

The review’s “in progress”. I’ll finish it on my lunch break or later tonight.

-_- says:

Isn’t this a joint between m.3.3.w and Toki-Doki?

Dark_Sage says:

Nothing escapes you, does it?

-_- says:

No, I just think that pointing out that it’s joint was the missing thing, because in other post I saw that and now there wasn’t, so I’ll bug you :D

Dark_Sage says:

Dude, I listed two websites and two IRC channels. I think most people can put two and two together.

Anonymous says:

Is there a difference between Toki-Doki and regular Doki?

Ryuk says:

Yes. Toki-Doki is a entirely different group.

Dark_Sage says:

If you wanna go by closest group relations, Toki-Doki is a branch (well, closer to a fork, since they’re not really affiliated) of Hatsuyuki. I do not believe Toki-Doki and Doki share any staff.

Floris257 says:

Correct. Some people are still working in Hatsuyuki, but most of our members don’t really do anything for Hatsuyuki at this point (and won’t in the future). We’re not related to Doki in any way, but our name seems to brought up that confusion.

Ryuk says:

Actually I think it’s a joint between Commie and FFF.

Ash says:

Fun fact: a crunchybortion is considered a delicacy in many places that allow cannibalism.

Floris257 says:

Well, not much I can say to defend this, sadly enough. Pretty much everything is justified, so we’ll just take it like a man and move on. We’ll be sure to fix the things pointed out in our batch, also to check the other episode thoroughly.
Future episodes will also be worked on more carefully to prevent some stupid mistakes as have been made in here.

asdas says:

who even cares, weeaboos.
