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.

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:

>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.

>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:

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.
