“It’s a three-and-a-half minute show. How bad could fansubs make it?” – Dark_Sage, before his innocence was taken.
- [Commie] Military! – 01 [49B6037A]
- [HorribleSubs] Military! – 01 [720p]
- [Mori] Military! – 01 [720p]
Commie and Kaitou are both edits of the HorribleSubs/Crunchyroll release, whereas Mori’s release is an original TL.
As you check the rest, it’s gonna be pretty obvious that Commie wins this comparison.
I’m quite pleased Crunchyroll is at least trying to typeset their shows. Due to needing a standardized font for their streams, this is probably about the best they can do.
It’s worth noting this is their v2.
Mori is a one-man group that appears new to the scene, so it’s reasonable to expect typesetting quality will improve going forward. But they don’t get a pass based on potential — this is the worst typesetting of the four choices.
My fucking eyes. You’re damn right I’m mad. Christ, the fuck were you thinking? Use borders, for the love of me.
As this is the official release, it can be inferred this ending does not exist in Military! canon. Official subs fans, please shield your eyes for the 30-second duration of this ED; it is not for you to experience.
I’ll take it.
Based on Mori’s blog, I do not believe he intends to add karaoke to future releases.
Have to give this nod to Commie.
Between this release and Commie’s, it was a bit difficult to decide which was better. The scale tipper for me was the lines — they looked blurrier in Kaitou’s than in Commie’s.

Even if you’re not autistic about encode quality, Mori’s release is unacceptable. Compare this screen to any of the others and you’ll see the issues pop out like zits on a white kid.
How do you screw this up when Aegisub fucking tells you it’s wrong?
If you’re colorblind or something, then learn to use the Spell Checker feature. It takes all of ten seconds to not look as retarded as you actually are.
That’s a grenade.
Oh, this is a civil strife kinda deal? Interesting, considering your fucking site’s synopsis spells out in no uncertain terms that it’s not.

Kaitou and Mori got it right, but Commie also got this wrong.
Why not something like “Every day can be a battle!” for the dual meaning? Reads awful right here.
For a karaoke comparison, Commie’s is more entertaining though obviously way more liberal, and Kaitou’s is rather standard. It’s a personal choice as to which is better, though I’m partial to the one that fits in a comedy anime.
Compared to HorribleSubs and its edits, this is rather… dull.
“What are you hiding there?! Take it out!” // “No way! Taking that out would get me in trouble!”
And Mori doesn’t exactly follow standards. For an original TL by a newcomer to the scene, I was expecting worse, though.
It’s a bit difficult to draw too many conclusions from releases of this length, but Commie and Kaitou come out as the obvious choices. They’re pretty even, but I’m leaning toward Commie cuz I like their ED better, and they didn’t fuck up their v2. Either should suffice, though.
