And with this, the last of the season prereqs is done. Time for content.

New Avatar.

Sauce (NSFW):


So I hope the next time you think about me, pierced nipples come to mind.


Now Watching updated.

You may be surprised to find that I haven’t watched a damn thing yet.


Off Topic has been refreshed.

But if you visit it regularly, you already knew that. Caly has an AMA going.


Poll is up/Review Queue updated.

Note that you’re gonna see fewer TL Parties this season, just cuz of the late start. I prioritize the actual reviews over the Parties.


The following will not be making an appearance:


Cardfight!! Vanguard

It’s the sequel to a series that no one cares about.

Nandaka Velonica

I am neither 8 nor retarded, so this is out.


Not anime.


How the hell is this still airing?


Are the blobs edible or something? I don’t get it.

Chou Bakuretsu

Not anime.

Kutsu Daru

Not anime.

Disk Wars: Avengers

Not anime.

Lady Jewelpet

You didn’t even watch the first season; don’t pretend you can jump in now just cuz the MC is kawaii. There are procedures to be followed.

Pretty Rhythm All Star

I almost remember watching some of the first season. Almost.

Fairy Tail 2014

While I do love Fairy Tail, I’m not even going to try catching up to this series. Surely there’s been enough plot and character development that anyone who only watched the first 40-some episodes would be lost watching it now.


It’s a sequel to some 200-episode series from the 60s. I don’t know why they thought 2014 would be ideal for its resurgence.

Tenkai Knights

North America has had this for a year now. If you really wanna watch Tenkai, just go for the superior English dub.

Duel Masters Versus

This series is still going? Why?

Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc V

I ain’t opposed to reviewing this, cuz fuck yeah YGO, but I’ve been out of the card game for so long that I’d just fuck up the terminology in the reviews.

Love Live!!

Was this the idol show every idol fan loved, or was that Pretty Rhythm? Either way, I won’t review it.

Abarenbou Rikishi

Cuz no.

DBZ Kai Majin Bu

Who the fuck would rewatch DBZ?

Hero Bank

I just can’t do it. Memories of [C] still haunt me.

Dragon Collection

RIP the almost okay manga.

Monster Retsuden

You wouldn’t vote for it anyway.

Ping Pong the Animation

Not anime.

Kantoko Fuyuki

Not anime.

Himitsu Kessha

Not anime.


The following are in-scope, but short, so they’ll only be pass/fail:




And these are sasugas. Note that Monogatari S-whatever is missing. I’m only interested in reviewing that one if some groups of worth bother this season. UTW and Commie have already proven they’re incompetent, and I’m not gonna waste my time on their shitty guesslations and FOBglish.



And there we go. Now time for me to download some stuff and jerk off to my reflection for a bit.



Di-Dorval says:

So do you hate all Yuasa works? Cause you know Ping Pong will be glorious. That first episode was dope.

Dark_Sage says:

I do. I don’t even have Kemonozume on my MAL, cuz I don’t consider it an anime.

Di-Dorval says:

Aw man Kemonozume was so great.

Was tatami Galaxy anime for you?

Dark_Sage says:

An initial glance says yes.

Di-Dorval says:

Considering your limited tastes, what was your favorite anime last season?

Dark_Sage says:

I’d like to say I finished any of them, but I didn’t. So, none.

Calyrica says:

Ooh! Ooh! I’ll tell you mine! It was Saki!

Rin says:

Saki definitely was one of the best last season, but i feel a bit disappointed — comparing to first two series it was much worse imho

Progeusz says:

First two? But Zenkoku-hen was only the second series and definitely holds up to the first one.

Rin says:

i consider Achiga-hen the second series, since it came out second.

i feel Zenkoku-hen was a bit rushed, it should have been 26-episodes long :>

Calyrica says:

Agreed, and it didn’t even finish the nationals T___T

Anon says:

Saki and Zvezda are the only acceptable answers.

brw says:

Except for the one, true, correct answer that is Mikakunin.

Anon says:

Mikakunin was a snoozefest.

brw says:

I’ll feckin burst ye, m8

Fuwaa says:

I wonder if Ping Pong doesn’t have enough funding or something, the animation seems lazy. Re-using frames, standing like statues during conversation. I can at least try to accept that the lines on the background are not straight on purpose, but if they’re cutting corners on episode 1, I can’t help but wonder if it’ll even finish the season.

Not that I’m trying to imply they’re as lazy as Dark_Sage…

puddi says:

Dude, let me review the yugioh subs (O_<)b

Dark_Sage says:

All yours.

john says:

shit taste as usual

Dark_Sage says:

sugoi jealousy as usual

yawn says:

sugoi attention need as usual

Kurt says:

I want you to pierce my nipples D_S

Dark_Sage says:

I know my hotel has a workout center. Not sure if they’ve got a dungeon… We’ll work something out.

Calyrica says:

Cardfight Vanguard was good. For a few eps. 160 eps later, I want to die.

Dark_Sage says:

At least you didn’t get sucked into Naruto. With your watching ethic, I think you’d die once the 100 episodes in a row of filler (yes, really) started.

Ash says:

“Who the fuck would rewatch DBZ?”

I’m still surprised by how much some adults are still obsessed with DBZ. I talked to this guy on MAL who thought that the pacing in Kai was too fast. He then proceeded to type out an essay detailing how great all of the filler in DBZ was and how he re-watches the original series all the time. He also saw that I gave it a low score on my MAL and asked me to change it so that the rankings wouldn’t get dragged down.

AnimeNOW says:

Everything is pretty shit this season so you’re not missing much.

Dark_Sage says:

I refuse to believe Elfen Liet and Lesbians with Knives could be bad.

jimmy says:

Lesbians with Knives is the most tryhard of the twenty-odd shows I’ve sampled, and one of the shittiest. I love it.

Dark_Sage says:


nakkinyan says:

Probably why nearly every show is 1 group vs horriblesubs. I don’t count troll subs (commie/DDY)

aaa says:

what’s an troll subs??

Hairy says:

What makes you think DDY are trollsubs?

Xythar says:

Probably confused them with DameDame.

Ash says:

Xythar, what kind of schedule are you guys planning on for Bokura wa Minna Kawaiso? Are you shooting for Fridays or is this one of those, “it’ll be out when it’s done” type of situations?

Xythar says:

Whenever it’s done, I guess. I usually have the episodes edited within around 12 hours after air, but it isn’t my project, so that’s all I do.

fgt13 says:

Really Xythar you’re defending fucking DDY now? I get you defending Commie since it’s your group and all but DDY? Are you ̶s̶c̶r̶i̶p̶t̶w̶r̶i̶t̶i̶n̶g editing for them as well?

Xythar says:

Nope. This may shock you, but most of the comments I make here are aimed at correcting misinformation rather than defending the honour of groups I’m not involved with (or barely involved with, in Commie’s case).

begna112 says:

Can confirm. Not trollsubs.

fgt13 says:

“Just according to Keikaku” “TL Note: Keikaku means plan.”
Not trollsubs

Anon says:

How fucking new are you?

fgt13 says:

Are you honestly saying that meme filled subs aren’t trollsubs?

Anon says:

Stop the presses.

One of their releases has a line that, while being an amusing reference, may also be interpreted as an epik maymay? Unacceptable. This blatant and inexcusable butchering of the noble and valiant art of fansubbing is outrageous. They dare to mock the efforts of hard-working and selfless fansubbers that strive to deliver the highest quality subtitles to legions of fans? Absolutely despicable. Their release, nay, their entire group is clearly a troll, and as such must be purged.

fgt13 says:

They did it on Noragami and Nourin. If you’re don’t know what you’re talking about please shut the fuck up.
The one on Nourin is barely acceptable since that scene is a direct reference to Death Note, the one on Noragami isn’t.
But epic memes are fine as long it’s not Commie doing right???
>hard-working and selfless fansubbers
I never saw any other group beg for donations like DDY so one thing is for sure they’re not selfless.

FalseDawn says:

Sounds reasonable to me. If that’s how they treat their subs, they should expect people to treat them likewise ;)

Also, maymay is not an acceptable way of mocking the word “meme”.

begna112 says:

As the comment thread wont go any further, I don’t “beg” for donations. I have never once asked for donations to keep us operating in a blog post. I HAVE however, asked for donations for blurays as those are additional expense that I and my team members cannot afford. Feel free to check for yourself. ANY reference to donations in a post is for blurays.

begna112 says:

Also, does including one meme in an entire show really make it “meme-filled”? The Death Note meme was also only included in the “Weeaboo” track assuming that that crowd might appreciate the joke more.

begna112 says:

We actually originally did not include the meme. only after overwhelming response from viewers did we include it in the batch. It also was actually a reference to another anime, Bleach iirc, as a joke. Meaning the anime itself intended it to be kind of a meme. Much of Nourin was like this.

dutchah says:

Commie aren’t troll subs.

They just suck.

yawn says:

yes, fansubs suck.

El Huesudo II says:

I had to sit through the first episode of Hero Bank at a recent con, so I thought I’d give you a nice rundown:

– It’s not [C].
– It doesn’t borrow finance terms for bullshit like [C] does.
– It doesn’t try to look smart like [C] did, so while Hero Bank looks really stupid, you’re expected to know what you were getting into.

– It’s a stupid kiddy show made as a companion for a fighting game for the 3DS; so the suck factor is high by default.
– Said fighting game is made by SEGA, and we know how good are they at games lately. So yeah, not even the game is good.
– Lots of shotacon fanservice, even in the OP.
– The synopses available for the show on the Internet make you think it’s gonna be about the kid getting into debt and trying to pay it off, but they’re lying. The “debt” factor is handled like Ouran Highschool Host Club, that is to say, just an excuse to get the plot rolling instead of it being the principal source of conflict.

Fuwaa says:

I kinda figured he was making a throw-away joke by comparing it to [C], but I’m sorry to hear that you had to watch it long enough to be able to compare the two.

El Huesudo II says:

Be more sorry that I know enough of [C] to be able to make the comparison, too. Both examples are enough for me to say that shounen shows about money is a guaranteed bad idea.

Fuwaa says:

I enjoyed [C], to be honest, but I think that’s just because I ignored the nonsense about economy and focused on what the anime was really about, horny girl on girl action.

a565 says:

>horny girl on girl action
There was girl on girl action on [C]? The only thing I remember from it was NTR.

_ says:

i wonder why people waste money on shit anime adaption. very few interesting anime this season.

Enz says:

Your avatars are getting better and better, D_S-kun. Your taste not so much I’m afraid.
