Dark_Sage says:

You win the stealth launch prize.

Solaristics says:

Caly w/ the stealth posting.

Calyrica says:

Aww yeah! I have nothing better to do with my life. Except work, gf, animu, and games.

Speaking of games, SMTIV-A 10/10.

Black Shads says:

Anyone read the manga Dead Tube? The latest chapter made me physically sick; it’s glorious.
Couldn’t figure out the BBC, so here: http://www.mangahere.co/manga/dead_tube/

Dark_Sage says:

Wait, what is this shit, a death game? Oh fuck, I am in.

Dark_Sage says:

more please :)
Black Shads says:

Damn, did you just catch up in 18 minutes?

The cliffhangers are always pretty intense, especially in 27 with so many unanswered questions.

Spoiler:
I do feel Machiya undereacted to his dad possibly getting chopped up and made into curry, but then again, maybe he liked it….

Great manga, though it could never get animated. That’s okay though, some things are better non-mainstream.

I’m pumped to finally have someone to chat about this one with, everyone else is currently addicted to Jojo and it makes me sick. :(

Dark_Sage says:

No, I edited my comment as I was reading through. Took me… a couple hours I think? Had to stop to fap to a lot of it.

Spoiler:
I dunno if it’s intense, shit got kinda boring. The plot of this arc can’t be interesting at all — amnesia bullshit plus lots of “oh wow can you guess what happened” is nothing but lazy writing.
Black Shads says:

By amnesia do you mean the fact that Machiya can’t remember Mashiro from before the series started? I agree with that, but I trust the author will have a legitimate explanation beyond “it was so long ago”.

Spoiler:
By no measure are twins high tier mystery writing, either.

I have high expectations for this arc, though. I’m hoping for a “Mashiro, I’ll do /anything/ if you help” development, and a scene at her house.

At this point, I’m also antipating that George Lucas has made Machiya’s sister an SS officer of the elementary school deathsquad.

PP says:

herkz back to deleting comments that just slightly imply he’s shitting on other groups because Commie is doing the show. Even deleted comments related to those comments. At least he’s good at being a little bitch.

flipr says:

I finally did it. I finally paid for physical weeb shit for the first time. I couldn’t wait for a No Game No Life season 2, so I bought the fourth light novel. Will I ever be the same again?

Dark_Sage says:

If you buy on LN, well, makes sense to have the whole set, right? And if you’ve got a full set already, might as well add another series, yeah?

Shit’s gonna spiral out of control until the only place you have left to sleep is on piles of manga and branded animu panties. Get out while you still can. ;_;

flipr says:

Well, after finishing it in a day, I was saved by the next LN not being officially translated yet. We’ll consider that to be a bullet dodged and see what happens when I dive into the terrifying world of scanlations (or whatever you call a fan LN translation).

slackzy says:

So, what does everyone think of the meidocafe youtube channel?

10/10, amirite?

Dark_Sage says:

If I was born half a decade ago I suppose I’d find the shtick funny.

Solaristics says:

Getting blue doesn’t mean they’re cartel lmao. And even if you’re not serious, that’s still a dumb thing to say.

Most of the shows I see there are from ones that no one is bothering to sub. Their release is just better than the official source.

QQwerty says:

We’re all cartel now.

Retkit says:

https://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=865709
>Because, we love Dragon Ball. We will pick up the old episodes, too.

Omg, it’s so retarded. Those people “love” DB, cuz Crunchyroll licensed it recently. I can’t stop laughing.

Fansubbing went to the dogs.

m22 says:

Can you review Chihiro’s Occultic;Notes translation? I’d like to know if it’s at least watchable or should I just hope for someone competent to do the BDs.

Retkit says:

Spoiler: it’s terrible.

Solaristics says:

He doesn’t review TLs… He reviews edits. I did, however, look at their release because I was curious to see if it’s worth swapping over from HS. I didn’t think it’s worth the wait.

There were lots of badly phrased lines, places where commas were missed, etc.

Anonymous Coward says:

Hah, look how pathetic the fansubbers are in this thread: https://twitter.com/SeibaaHomu/status/794066163017711617

Someone needs to dox them and jail their fucking asses so they learn how to not have a fucking huge ego. Like, “Keep wearing your tinfoil hat”? Really?!

Dark_Sage says:

A. Not your personal army.
B. Doxxing is fucked — keep internet drama to the internet
C. ???

Solaristics says:

No one cares. Also, Seibaa is an idiot. He’s an idiot on MAL too.

Welp says:

From what I read above… Same with Hyaku and herkz.

Period says:

not really

Period says:

lol what

QQwerty says:

That’s you, right?

I can’t imagine how anyone else could possibly care about this.

Black Shads says:

When fansubbing drama gets real

Pizza says:

>Vintage banners.

Wew.

Pat says:

>Patiently waiting for D_S shitpost

still waiting

Dark_Sage says:

I’ll get the Aniplex version. Don’t need guesslated garbage by a group whose site gets maybe 100 hits a day.

Solaristics says:

D_S, please. They were fine for the most part.

>Aniplex.

But they’re bad…

Dark_Sage says:

I’ll take Aniplex Engrish over completely made up scripts any day of the week.

Solaristics says:

How exactly is their script made up, though?

Solaristics says:

That’s actually pretty funny. I never noticed that.

Kek says:

These lines are perfectly fine tho. Vertical worded it differently but both translations mean the same thing.

Dark_Sage says:

BRB opening up my power level ports. kamehamaha amirite my fellow anime fan?

Kek says:

Have some Vertical:

1) Making friends would lower my intensity as a human.
(…)
I think that’s the same as becoming weaker as a person.

2) Maybe I need the firewall of a pair of bike shorts after all.

TL;DR = there’s nothing wrong with Commie TL. Actually, they’re pretty creative.

Solaristics says:

Don’t know Japanese, so obviously I know nothing of the Original TL or what it’d mean before, but… Maybe it’s my just my creativity that would stop me, but I don’t think I’d ever make this kind of edit in a release.

I wouldn’t doubt the TL if it was right. But personally, I don’t think I like this kind of edit. Not like it’d ruin my watching experience, though.

duplex says:

Well, you don’t even need to know Japanese to understand what ファイアウォール means.

duplex says:

Care to use your Japanese language expertise to explain what the lines actually mean, then?

Dark_Sage says:

Nah, I think I’ll just dismiss the release based on group name alone and call it a day.

Kek says:

That’s cheap.

Kek says:

>Well, you don’t even need to know Japanese to understand what ファイアウォール means.

ファイアウォール = Firewall.
Yeah, she said that in engrish.

>I wouldn’t doubt the TL if it was right. But personally, I don’t think I like this kind of edit.

Again, what kind of edit? They just made these lines more comprehensible.

Solaristics says:

Speaking in general here. Obviously not every TL would make the same TL. I just don’t think I’d come up with a line like this (Engrish aside). Just personal preference here. There’s really no big deal to it. The line is still easy to understand. Not going to go out of my way to try and figure out an alternative line for the sentence.

Kamica says:

From episode 7 of Sengoku Choujuu Giga

Was this really in the official simulcast or is HorribleSubs trolling?

Dark_Sage says:

I think we’re in the Crunchyroll goes to the dark side timeline.

atikabubu says:

Coalgirls quietly died and… oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

PP says:

>Grand Monogatari Project – Cancelled
RIP

Retkit says:

2nd promo, bitches!

Retkit says:

*D_S-chan no Revenge

Matrix says:

Is there any good group who is going to translate it?

Kamica says:

Thoughts on new Code Geass season?

Retkit says:

its shit

Dark_Sage says:

What? Why? Christ.

Black Shads says:

Hey Dark_Sage, you rake in anything good over Black Friday weekend?

Dark_Sage says:

No, I don’t buy things. I’m sort of an anime monk.

Humanity says:

>no Crymore Christmas yesterday
Why live? ;-;

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, I failed. ;_;

Kamica says:

Just don’t fail us on the Winter 2017 preview.

Dark_Sage says:

I’ve mostly spent my free time marathoning Bleach, so…

James says:

So who ultimately was the best choice for Yahari? It was going to be FFF, but they never got past episode 4 season 2.

Dark_Sage says:

S1 BD: Coalgirls (FFF)
S2 BD: SallySubs? (Edited CR, which makes me suspicious, but ain’t like you got many options out there)

MrPonty says:

Are commie that bad?

Dark_Sage says:

Yes.

James says:

RIP Coalgirls…

lotusgg says:

hey d_s, there’s still time to bash at all the shitty shows airing next season

Solaristics says:

D_S is dead.

bommel says:

we all are.

Dark_Sage says:

Pizza says:

Watching funimation’s akiba’s trip subtitles is suffering. Please review them.

Solaristics says:

How’re you enjoying Berseria, sage?

Dark_Sage says:

Berseria is great at everything except combat, map design, and general gameplay.

So… It’s like the second-best Tales.

this guy says:

I haven’t played Berseria, but Zestiria gameplay/battle system is atrocious (made me stop at tutorial lmao).
Well, it’s similar to other Tales series, but 2D battle like Tales on PS1 was more appealing.

James says:

I think what you just said is that the story is great. I’m okay with that in an rpg.

Dark_Sage says:

If you ignore the world that Zestiria forcefully made shit… yeah, best story in a Tales game.

Anonymous says:

Please review CR’s Gabriel DropOut. The memes… It hurts…

Dark_Sage says:

Hmm… effort. But on the other hand, maybe I should watch something this season.

Dark_Sage says:

Surely this will save fansubbing!

Stinx says:

Wtf:

>As mentioned earlier, the user backlash made Crunchyroll roll back on the instant deployment of the new low bitrate video. However, this is only for new episodes — all older episodes that have been converted over to the new low bitrate format are only available to paid users in said low bitrate format, and any new episodes are converted over just a day after initial release.

Dark_Sage says:

TFW pandering this hard, but still have no hits. I’ll give this faggot 10 minutes, but that’s about it. What video should I be looking at here?

Dark_Sage says:

Glad to see all the bitching and whining at Crunchyroll from the scene’s remnants was to great effect. Well done, fansubbers, you’ve succeeded once again.

Retkit says:

CR will run into a bunch of other problems, sooner rather than later. Amazon’s started to expand, and their streaming service is like 20 times better than CR petty BR and half-assed scripts.

https://fansubdb.com/wiki/Spring_2017
Anime Strike = Amazon. And they already teamed up with Sentai:

Nobody watches sukasuka ;_;

anony says:

>nyaa down
>bbt went private

Premium drama at /a/.

Dark_Sage says:

2010_Sage will be devastated.

anonym says:

Nyaa Torrents 2008-2017
RIP in peace

Kamica says:

So are we all using Tokyo Toshokan again?

anony says:

Apparently the new hot thing is gnunet.

MrPonty says:

i need a quality article about the death of nyaa plz (it’s just a reminder since you said you are not gonna write anything until you find a job)

Dark_Sage says:

Mm, all right. Think I can afford to slack off for a night.

MrPonty says:

D_S senpai you always know how to make me happy <3

Kamica says:

If there ever were a time to come out of hibernation to do something, this would be it.

Dark_Sage says:

Well now I’m worried, because I was just gonna throw out a 1-hour shitpost. Maybe I’ll… let this bake a little longer.

Dark_Sage says:

No.

Dark_Sage says:

I mean, what’s there to say? There used to be like fansub factions which were loose associations of fansubbers who ran in the same social circles. One of those circles was commonly referred to as the cartel, cuz they were the largest and most influential. Thanks to their lack of competency, as they gained more marketshare in the fansubbing scene, people stopped giving a shit about fansubs. And now the site that was their crowning achievement, nyaa (though ascribing nyaa’s one-time success as their own is a weird combination of both hilarious and pathetic), went down. So they lost the entirety of what little relevance they once had.

Don’t know why 4chon thinks this “story” is worth a fucking book, though they have been a bit behind the bellcurve over the past decade.

MrPonty says:

i was actually joking, but anyway 4chan went full conspiracy theory about the meme cartel, they really took it to another level of sadness.

Dark_Sage says:

Why, in May 2017, would there even be a thread about fansubs? Got an archive link? I’m morbidly curious.

MrPonty says:

4chan is trying to create their own “nyaa”, so they are shitposting about it on /a/.

If you are not blocked, you can see screenshots of it on herkz’s twitter account.

EDIT: http://boards.4chan.org/g/thread/60362384 think i got one of the threads.

Dark_Sage says:

Oh Jesus, all that text is from today? Welp, guess I’ve got some reading to do. Thanks fam.

Anon says:

Huh? Both nyaa.si and nyaa.pantsu.cat aren’t “official” nyaa.se new sites.
People behind those 2 sites are just “creating their own nyaa”.

Dark_Sage says:

nyaa.si closer to being the spiritual successor in the sense it has more of the retards involved with the original nyaa on staff than pantsu does.

Kamica says:

Can we expect any season previews in the year 2017?

Dark_Sage says:

Oh god, how much time do I have?

Kamica says:

July 1st. It starts big with the only new show of the coming season that I know anything about: Kakegurui

Dark_Sage says:

Sweet, that gives me like… Two+ weeks to get started. \o/

Dark_Sage says:

RIP.

Kamica says:

You can still make it in time if you do it like…tonight lol

Kamica says:

Scratch that. Season has officially started.

Dark_Sage says:

Welp, there’s always next decade.

Ralph says:

What happened to the Pandora bot on IRC that had all the Whine-Sub releases? I need it

Dark_Sage says:

Not my bot, no idea. What were you looking for?

Ralph says:

I was hoping to grab the TV versions of your C-Control subs, can you help me out?

Dark_Sage says:

Just the subs, or the MKVs?

Ralph says:

Was hoping for the MKVs. Are the subs all you’ve got?

anon says:

So Fyurie retired, FFF’s fully stalled, DDY only finished Titan, and Asenshi’s got nothing planned for summer. herkz is basically all that’s left of fansubbing.

anony says:

Doki is still active.

[*] Fansubs says:

Where were you when fansubs were kill? Not like it’s a huge loss, it’s just a shame that shows like Kakegurui will have unreliable weekly subs.

https://fansubdb.com/wiki/Summer_2017
Literally nothing from fansubs, lel.

anon says:

So UTW came back from the dead. Netflix bringing back the fansubs? Review when

Dark_Sage says:

Shit…

Robert says:

D_S can you recommend anything like canaan or black lagoon, girls with guns but somewhat thought-provoking?

Dark_Sage says:

Jormungand. It has a lot of dudes, but I guarantee it has everything you’re looking for. Much slower build-up than those two, but well worth it.

Robert says:

thanks man

Bunny says:

Heads-up D_S, if you’re thinking of coming again this year, Otakuthon (Montreal anime con) pre-reg ends in a day and a bit. Cheers!

Dark_Sage says:

Fuck

James says:

Hey, don’t need an article, just tell me, are there options for Koyomimonogatari, and who should I choose?

Thank you based dark sage.

Dark_Sage says:

No fucking idea. Did people really keep watching after Nise?

lazy_sysadmin // 1337_H4x0R_G0d says:

I did and forced all my friends too ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

It’s the only harem anime that does a good job of giving every animu grill equal screen time (that I know of).
