The real monster is fansubbing itself.


A lesson in how not to edit.

It’s gotta take a lot of effort to make a script this much worse than the official release, but these guys make it look so easy.


And I’ll look down and whisper “no”.




What is love?


“A charge”? Yeah, can’t imagine bake’s editor will ever find out.



I doubt they ever went


In the image of the Bakemono devs themselves, all meaning has been stripped away.



Yeah, I want it, but no I don’t need it


If the grammar police existed, I’d hope this editor really liked Skittles.



Pretty sure last episode had the guy in question investigating, Bakemono


This release is the perfect example of how some people need to swallow gravel till it corrects the mistake of their existence.



Papers please


Papers? They’re death threats. Just because they’re on paper doesn’t mean they’re “papers” anymore than being on welfare makes the bakemono staff “wellfarers”.



God helps those who don’t download bakemono


You know bakemono, I’ve heard your cries for help both on your site and in your subs. Since you apparently can’t afford it, I will buy you that bottle of bleach you’ve been looking for. Go and fulfill the only purpose your life ever had.

Oh, and livestream it so I can finally jerk off to something 3d. It’s been about two years since even Iiniku could do anything for me.



I’m getting a raging clue myself right now


Bakemono’s editor must have Hillary-tier Parkinson’s cuz this shit is all over the place. Hope they join a bomb defusal squad soon.



Highschool of the Retarded


Protip, shitnuts: Aegisub has a spellcheck function.




This is an even more context-barren failure of English than JK Rowling


At this point, they’ve gotta just be making shit up for attention. I like to believe the best of people, and the alternative would just be too sad.



“really not” right about sums up this release



I mean, it’s close. Good try, TLC. You just have to do it correctly next time. Or take a cement bath up to your neck. I would accept either of those.



Revolutionary change, huh? Like removing hereditary chronic illnesses from the picture?


When Mr. Rogers said everyone was special, he was clearly just hedging his bets for these sperglords.



Clean-hands Sage


May look like it reads bad here, but it’s even worse when you’re watching the show.



/r/ TLC


If neither your editor nor your TLC speaks English, maybe you shouldn’t have either of them on your fucking project.



That An-chan~


Come the fuck on now. We’re reaching levels of retard that shouldn’t be possible outside of reddit.



A fitting end


Christvomit. I think Jesus himself would return to Earth to perform abortions on the genetically unfit if he saw this was what laissez faire breeding has wrought.

Honestly, I have to half-blame this release on whatever crackwhore forgot to smother her kid when she saw how fucking deformed it was. Apparently not every hunchback ends up in a Disney film.






Watchability: Not quite there.

Visual grade: Script was so bad I didn’t even grab screenshots for this. (Other than the above.)

Script grade: Disq’d desu.

Overall grade: Straight Fail. These fuckers didn’t even earn a letter grade.


w e w

Essentially insatiable in their desire to somehow be worse at the English language than your standard fansub failstays such as Commie or WhyNot, I wouldn’t trust these guys to edit a fucking coloring book.

There is no timeline in which the dregs who staffed this release are not deserving of a painful, drawn-out death. My only regret is that I can’t drop in on every world thread in which justice is done.

tl;dr: Don’t watch this release. (Or this show, cuz that sucks too.)

Pizza says:

Well, I dropped this show because it sucks ass, so whatever. Those guys totally deserve 35$ :^).

They were thinking of Highschool of the Dead, amirite?

Fucking fansubs, can’t even improve an official translation. A lot of people are saying that commie’s Fune wo Amu release this season does not have meeemz, but I don’t care since I don’t trust those fuckers.

Lmao says:

What’s wrong with memes tho?

Pizza says:


Lmao says:

Well, Japan uses them as well. A lot of them, actually.

brc says:

After seeing the guy who pity QC’d their release on their site, I can’t wait for your Drifters review. At least, they seem like they are trying to improve themselves.

Devil says:

Well u r right in somethings about edit.

Devil says:

But if u can tell this much why dont u join and help them as a editor?
Dont u have time or u dont want to help them.
Shall i tell u why.
Because u r cartel fuckers. atleast they r TLins their own for some shows.
U r mentioning commie, which commie always does TLC CR.
and which u and ur commie cartel suckers. If u dont like them doing just shut ur eggs and pen and fuk urself.
But i also agree that there r editing mistakes.
Show also the other mistakes done by other team.
Just giving green status to teams who just started and who suck like for example torn 1234 EG Commie etc.,
u and u cartel suckers
Ofufakku dark mage
Ofufakku nyaa
Ofufakku cartel group

Lmao says:

>U r mentioning commie, which commie always does TLC CR.

They’ve translated every Monogatari. Aniplex scripts were horrible, tho.

Ryuu says:

>Show also the other mistakes done by other team.

That’s pretty much what this blog is for. Reviewing Subs.

>atleast they r TLins their own for some shows

And the result is “Nao-chan was talking about how some people who were under that woman’s spell was saying some stuff, but it doesn’t make much sense.” Hey, but at least it’s original TL!

Why do people defend this shit?

Dark_Sage says:

Please, it’s dark sage.
dark mage was my father’s name.

Ryuu says:

I wonder how dark witch, dark sorceress, dark wizard and dark spellcaster are related to you.

moozooh says:

Not to mention dark warlock, dark shaman, and dark enchantress.

HeavenlyArmed says:

When the subs suck the subs suck. None of the errors here are defensible when CR had none of these issues.

Fyurie says:

With English like that, I hope you never try QCing or editing, friend.

Solaristics says:

You literally just gave me cancer with that comment.

Devil says:

Also one more thing Trickster anime does not suck as much as u

Ryuu says:

I love selling ts

Ryuu says:

Yay, I’m getting fake posters. My time of having a presence in the community has arrived!

Dark_Sage says:

Moving on up~

Ryuu says:

I am a noob hacker

Ryuunosuke says:

>I love selling ts
>I am a noob hacker
Take a chill pill, I’m not the only “Ryuu” in the community, moron.

Ryuu says:

Now I’m confused. Are you telling that to the shitposting Ryuu? That’s what your quotes imply, but I don’t see the point of your message in that case.
Or are you replying to me (The second Ryuu in this comment chain)?

Ryuunosuke’s talking to the shitposter. Devil/Ryuu thinks you are the Ryuu the capper, which is why he mentioned selling .ts.

Ryuunosuke says:

>Ryuu the capper
Wow. Since when he’s a capper?

Ryuu says:

Now I get it. So the fake posting wasn’t meant for me… My presence is vanishing ;_;

Devil says:

i dont care u ryuu (the one without a pic).
dont post anonymous if u have dare
u using others name u ts seller fuker

Ryuu says:

Strictly speaking, I’m not really posting anonymously, since I’m using a real E-Mail address and IIRC the site tracks my IP (as part of wordpress behaviour or smth like that)
You’re right on your second point, I COULD get a Gravatar account.
As for your third point… Come on, there are so many Ryuu’s in the web, you can’t really call it “using others name”

Devil says:

Ah, damn it.
Ogni ryuu qui dovrebbe andare all’inferno

Dark_Sage says:

What is wrong with you? I mean, besides the obvious.

Ryuu says:

That comment was hilarious (after putting it through Google Translate). I imagined it with an anime character having a “fuck-it-all” expression and shoving everything off his desk.

Ryuunosuke says:

He went full retard lol

Devil says:

Fyurie we know that u r Editor, Qcer and etc.,
so u dont have to tell that indirectly.

jymmy says:

There’s a reply button, you inbred fucknugget.

Etoce says:

“High school” is a single lexical unit though, and if not for convention dictating it be written with a space, it would be universally regarded as a single word. The best proof of this is that people who have Canadian raising (which is most Americans and Canadians) will raise the vowel in “high” in “high school” so that it sounds like vowel sound in “price” and not the one in “pry”. When the /aɪ/ diphthong is followed by an unvoiced consonant, it turns into /ʌɪ/, but only if it doesn’t cross word boundaries. Compare “high school” to “high-priced”, which doesn’t have the raising.

Basically, Bakemono is just being progressive with their orthographic style and it’s all y’all who need to get with the times.

Dark_Sage says:

I’m too drunk right now for this.

Etoce says:

It doesn’t important.

Lmao says:

Wait, what? Are you retarded?

Solaristics says:

Pretty sure D_S edited his own comment. It said something else before. Etoce was just making fun of him. At least, I think that’s what happened. I can’t remember.

Dark_Sage says:

I’m too sober right now for this.

Solaristics says:

I’m expecting a drunk review of one of those shows you listed in the other topic.

damnCR says:

I thought DS was drunk but apparently it’s the shitty CR licensing limitations.
Thou DS might also be drunk, just not as much as I thought.
