Up first on the Spookymore agenda is Parasyte. Also, acquiring some pizza. But first Parasyte.

Opening. They didn’t sub the OP.
Ending. Hatsuyuki may not be able to English, but they sure can make karaoke faggy enough to leave viewers with just the faintest hint of flavored condom in their mouths.
Rating: Good. Tonight’s offering is cherry, and I happen to like cherry.
Not sure how Hatsu got “unraveled hair” from “disheveled hair”, but okay.

Reality? This wouldn’t even fly in make-believe land. You’re just throwing random words that you hear in Japanese or English into the pre-constructed Crunchyroll sentences and hoping it works out.
It doesn’t, nor will it ever.
I’d suggest everyone who worked on this script go back to their native language’s scene to sub, but I’m pretty sure those scenes don’t want anything to do with people broken enough to sub for Hatsuyuki. So instead I’ll have to recommend that Hatsuyuki devs kill themselves instead. That way everyone wins. Most especially the Hatsuyuki devs’ families.
Look, I understand you’ve watched a lot of One Piece, but you can’t just fucking TL “nakama” as comrade simply cuz you recognize the word from one context.
Migi ain’t saying he’s besties with the other parasyte; in fact, he’s been very fucking adamant that the only thing he cares about is himself, and considers other parasytes to be his enemy. So don’t sub this show like he’s buddy-buddy with them, you dimwitted dumbasses.
You know what you should call a substitute teacher, Hatsuyuki? It’s not a riddle; I just fucking told you. Get it together, guys. Christ.
Normally I wouldn’t point this out, since the line is acceptable on its own, but look at what they’re doing to the official subs:
Original: She’s quite the looker.
The script is being hacked up like they have a butcher’s license.
Again, they commit their version to being worse than the original.
Now, I know I warned you all about how spooky Spookymore can get, but in case some of you in the audience have anxiety issues about mutilated English, I’m gonna hide the original lines behind spoilers going forward.
What, from like 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock?
What could possess someone to write like this? Someone needs to perform an exorcism with acid. Poisoned acid.
You can’t make this shit up.
Thanks, Hatsu. I needed that clarification. Was afraid he entered out.
Who’s coming up with these lines? Seriously, how broken do you have to be to think this is how a sentence should be written? I’m pretty sure childhood rape victims hold it together better than these lines do.
Hatsu: always in touch with what the youngsters are word-speaking.
There’s quite a list, guys.
Because that’s totally how wielding works.
Watchability: Watchable, though I wouldn’t recommend it.
Visual grade: B-
Script grade: D-
Overall grade: D-
Jesus Christ, Hatsuyuki. I don’t even know why I keep giving you chances. You’re as incompetent as Hadena was, but you’re not remotely close to being that funny. Hardly anyone downloads your releases, no one reads your site, and your reputation is many multiples of seven feet under the ground.
If all you can manage to do is create subs that are objectively worse than the official options, why the fuck are you still subbing? Quit while you’re behind, cuz I doubt you’ll ever catch up.
