OP. Romanji has weird breaks, but the engrish translation is so bad, as you can see above, I wish I can fail them for just this alone.

[Kayllin] Soul Eater Not! - 01 [Hi10P 1280x720 H264] [A1330800].mkv_snapshot_23.32_[2014.04.19_21.22.07]

ED. More weird romanji breaks (or lack thereof), but thank god they have the FUNi ED translation to crib off this time around.

 

Main Script.

[Kayllin] Soul Eater Not! - 01 [Hi10P 1280x720 H264] [A1330800].mkv_snapshot_05.58_[2014.04.18_00.24.27]

Still has this error.

[Kayllin] Soul Eater Not! - 01 [Hi10P 1280x720 H264] [A1330800].mkv_snapshot_10.42_[2014.04.18_00.27.51]

“Harudori.”

[Kayllin] Soul Eater Not! - 01 [Hi10P 1280x720 H264] [A1330800].mkv_snapshot_13.30_[2014.04.18_00.33.08]

Didn’t fix this mistake either.

[Kayllin] Soul Eater Not! - 01 [Hi10P 1280x720 H264] [A1330800].mkv_snapshot_16.35_[2014.04.18_00.37.38]

Decided to stick with “commaries.”

Lolno.

The editing. It blows.

[Kayllin] Soul Eater Not! - 01 [Hi10P 1280x720 H264] [A1330800].mkv_snapshot_13.18_[2014.04.18_00.36.06][Kayllin] Soul Eater Not! - 01 [Hi10P 1280x720 H264] [A1330800].mkv_snapshot_15.39_[2014.04.18_00.37.12][Kayllin] Soul Eater Not! - 01 [Hi10P 1280x720 H264] [A1330800].mkv_snapshot_20.53_[2014.04.18_00.38.39]

These were all pulled from the “honorifics” track.

 

Final Grade: Fail

They may have passed if they haven’t gotten the name of the main character wrong.

Not surprised.

Enz says:

Thanks for the review. The show looks like utter shit but it’s always fun to read the reviews on here.

Speaking of which; will Caly be returning anytime soon? I really miss her posts.

kokujin-kun says:

Unfortunately, I can’t say for sure. All we can do is keep bugging her.

Dark_Sage says:

Go onto IRC and highlight her. She’ll respond.

What else leads to a fail?

kokujin-kun says:

That’s pretty much it. Not editing and improving a streamrip script is one thing, but the worst thing anybody can do to a streamrip script is to actually add mistakes to it. It makes all of us die a little bit inside.

Anony says:

Not all of us. I for one enjoy these, for the lols.

begna112 says:

I assume S-T-D is next? Lol

“They may have passed if they haven’t gotten the name of the main character wrong.”

Kayllin cares about this show as much as everyone else (including the author, apparently.)

Samuel says:

Kayllin did state on his torrent that he was waiting for Fafnyr to translate the Opening Song which he has and has now been updated in episode 02. Also regarding the issue with mispelling a name. I am sure that is a typo that was left in the script which was also stated that any errors/typos would be fixed in batch also in the torrent link.

I didn’t mind the release as the Karaoke matched the actual fonts in the video source whereas STD went with fancy effects.

Samuel says:

I also like to add that Tsugumi Harudori was spelled correctly throughout the release and there was only one instance of misspelt name, so that also gives reason for it being a typo.

Fuwaa says:

I don’t think anyone thought he spelled the name wrong on purpose… It just means there wasn’t enough editing, which matters to some people, especially when editing is ALL Kayllin did.

Ryuk says:

Did anyone even pass a simulcast edit TL review yet?

kokujin-kun says:

Come to think of it, no I don’t recall.

You all disappoint me.
