In this age of samey releases, it can be refreshing to have some actual options for a show. Of course, sometimes that means you only have one real option.

Same subs, different day

On the outset, you’d be forgiven for thinking Asuka Subs and Vivid would have Amagi releases of a similar quality.

 

Both groups have similar taste in anime…

Read: shit taste

Both groups have eyecancer banners…

Vivid Banner Asuka Subs Banner

 

And both groups used the same translation for Amagi Brilliant Park…

Apparently Sharky's in Asuka Subs too. I imagine it will be news to him.

So can we really expect many differences between the two releases?

Well, there are some...

  1. >more of your DAT ASS

    My sides, seriously though, how is this shit not considered a troll? At least Vivid fixed that on their release.

      • For the longest time, bakabt’s decisions have been based solely on what would cause the least amount of drama instead of actual quality. Though they are a better source than nyaa, yes.

          • Stuff like http://underwater.nyaatorrents.org/?view=in-other-news .

            See, prior to 5 years ago, most of bakabt’s releases were based on group name only. Chihiro came onto the scene, and in winter 2009, there were several releases where Chihiro was significantly better than the other options – Maria-sama ga Miteru S4, and Asu no Yoichi. Bakabt was going to reject them because Chihiro had a terrible terrible name at that point (our first 7 months were speedsubs), but I argued there about the need to look at the actual releases and they were approved.

            After that point, various bakabt staff members joined Chihiro causing some potential conflict of interests, and more Chihiro stuff was approved. In September 2009, that was when problems occurred. There was a big argument over Chihiro vs. Eclipse Hayate no Gotoku S2, and another about Chihiro vs. Commie Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou. As in, over 300+ comments. Eclipse was eventually taken for Hayate, but there was no issue there. They elected to go with Chihiro for Gendai Mahou.

            This caused tons of accusations of bias for Chihiro, such as Daiz’s post (which had a ton of comments which he has since deleted), and comments in bakabt. Bakabt reversed their Gendai Mahou decision. That was when bakabt implemented offer locking.

            Since that point, their decisions have all seemed to be made in whatever direction is least likely to cause comment explosions. The only Chihiro releases they have accepted since that time (which had other options), were Asura Cryin and Fortune Arterial. And this is even though a very strong case could be made for shows like To Aru Railgun, Kamisama no Memo-chou, and Amagami SS.

            • Oh right I see… had no idea about all of that. LOL gotta love people on the internet and being right. Well like you agreed, at least its better than nyaa.

              P.s thanks for the story/info.

              • Except all of that is 5 years ago?

                What’s the point when none of that matters now?

                There’s a whole different policy in place there.
