Translation Party: [Baaro vs Commie vs Hatsuyuki vs HorribleSubs] Sailor Moon Crystal (Episode 01)

Fansub Review, Translation Party — By on July 8, 2014 9:15 pm

I can’t promise you’ll like the results, but in the name of the moon, you’re gonna have to fucking deal with it.

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.

Baaro :: So this is that Sailor V.
It must be so nice! If I was Sailor V-{\i1}chan{\i0}, I wouldn’t have to go to school,

I wish I was Sailor V.
Then I could have fun beating up bad guys instead of going to school.

It must be nice being Sailor V.

Baaro :: Stupid humans!
They all have no idea that the jewellery is absorbing their energy.
But it seems the one I truly seek is not here either…

Commie :: Foolish humans.
They have no idea that the jewelry they bought is draining their energy.
But it would appear that the jewel I seek is elsewhere.

Hatsuyuki :: Ignorant humans!
They’re all unaware the jewelry is absorbing their energy.
However, it seems that the main one I seek is not here either.

Xythar, saving Commie skirt by skirt.

FalseDawn says:

Resoundingly Commie, which is a rarity :O

FalseDawn says:

Fair play to Xythar though. Seems to be the only editor on this show that knows what a real conversation sounds like :D

I got Commie. There seemed to be a lot of awkward lines between these groups for such an easy translation…

Can’t be helped i guess ┐(´-`)┌

Yeah, Commie’s is much better.

Actar says:

Hatsuyuki.

You should have put in SMC’s release as well. They’ve done all of the other Sailormoon series.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh fuck. Yeah, I didn’t even notice their release. Woulda been better if I had, since I already had the comparison lines chosen on Sunday and wouldn’t have had to wait till today to post this.

Welp, I’ll add ’em to the review queue and try to get to them with a review. My bad.

Xythar says:

Their script is almost the same as HS:

Solaristics says:

Either something wrong with that or my computer is screwing up. I only see 33 lines.

Xythar says:

Turn off your adblock and try again. I think something in the page must be triggering it because I get the same issue unless I disable adblock or switch browsers.

Weirdly, it had no issue when I was making the diff, just when linking to it afterwards.

Choosing the good lines I got mostly Commie; choosing the shittiest lines everyone made a strong showing except Commie. Seems the stars have aligned and they’ve put together a good release.

So is “jewellery” like British English or something I’ve literally never seen it spelled like that in my life and I had to google it to make sure it was real.

Yeah, it’s the British English spelling.

It would be nice if more Commie editors put in the effort Xythar does.

Commie was easily the clear winner, but in saying that, I liken this comparison to a school accidentally putting a normal kid in the special-ed class, and that kid rightly trouncing his peers.

A clear winner, given that Hatsuyuki releases are usually quite slow.

Any result I would get would be absurdly biased since I was involved with the Baaro release, but yeah, even I can admit Commie did the best job on this episode.

Good to see that Commie is actually capable of a coherent release. It’s just a shame that the one person who speaks English on their team has been assigned so a show I’m not watching this season.

Hunta says:

Eh, I’m just watching the old show. Dubbed.

Johan says:

Me too, but in Japanese language and yellow subs

Hunta says:

The only other way to do it.

Lots of the lines I chose sounded rather Commie-y, so I had an idea of what the results would be.

Da North says:

So, what about Sailor Moon Cosmos, as dropped on us on Nyaa last night?

[Sirius B] Sailor Moon Cosmos 01: Crystal Commentary With Neil deGrasse Tyson (ASS files keyed to the Commie or Horrible vids)

Dark_Sage says:

Hmm, reddit trollsubs. Yeah, ain’t gonna happen.

Kiraly says:

It wasn’t really a troll (or even a sub for that matter).

Da North says:

At least he got his science right. And the subs used were better than the Horrible’s I started with (probably Commie’s).
