Review_Queue

~Fall 2014 Edition~

Things to remember:

  • Review order is determined by the poll… usually. I make no promises, as I’m not good at keeping them.
  • If a show has already been reviewed, you won’t find it in this queue. Try the Review Summary.
  • If there is a HorribleSubs edit for a show, I will only review the edited version and not the original rip. Re-encodes will not be reviewed.

TouToTheHouYo says:

I sure hope [???] does a good job this season. They seem to be subbing everything.

elenrod says:

??? review when? I don’t know whether to watch ??? or ???’s version.

Welp says:

Pretty sure ???’s ???, ???, and ??? are DQ’d.

Darkseid says:

Pretty Sure ???’s release for ??? is just a rencode of ???’s release so that’s probably for the best :P

Kamica says:

Not many fansubs so far this season.

qwerty says:

Fansub groups are dying left and right. Is this the end of fansubbing?

Darkseid says:

Too late. We are in the age of FanEdits now :P

Kristen says:

Fansubs are a dying breed. Crunchyroll destroyed many groups, and those that remained have been destroyed by a few groups that speedsub 10+ shows a season.

Kamica says:

You mean like FFF, whom is subbing a grand total of one show this season? Or DameDesuYo whom is subbing 0 shows?

qwerty says:

Just off the top of my head, I can only count two groups subbing more than one show this season: Commie (ha) and Kaylith. Maybe A-K if they’re gonna do S2 for Chaika.

Kristen says:

Yeah, not this season. Talking about seasons past. Groups aren’t dying this season – they have already died in past seasons. What you’re seeing this season is the result of the decline of fansubbing.

KoolKidsK says:

Why/how were groups “destroyed” by other groups? Are you saying people only sub for download count and when they can’t get downloads because another group releases first, they just don’t bother?

LotusGG says:

Can you review Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete first? There is only funi and a weird joint subbing it, so I’m not actually sure since the joint has censorship and funi not, but funi is…

ItsHim says:

They’re both bad. The weird joint doesn’t even know layers exist.

LotusGG says:

So I don’t know what to do.
The show is actually good. What do I do?

Fyurie says:

Funi apparently did half-decent (My fucking face when, I know).

Go with them if all else fails.

LotusGG says:

Watched 1st episode at the joint, but next I will give funi a try.
Hell, they didn’t even mux the fonts correctly.

Fuwaa says:

I’ll second Fyurie. I don’t know what happened to Funi, but they’re not fucking up nearly as often or as badly so far this season as they have in the past.

Anonymous says:

Can you make sure to review or put into a TL Party [P]’s subs for Ore Twintail.

name says:

Can you make sure to review or put into a TL Party [P]’s subs for Ore Twintail.

LotusGG says:

Is it a fansub or a fanrip?

name says:

Fansub. http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=607876 or http://tokyotosho.info/details.php?id=823593

I can’t find other information on the group, but their subs for episode 1 are much better than funi shitsubs or >commie’s trollsubs.

Akatsukin says:

I wish everyone that doesn’t understand editing or what a “troll” is would die.

Solaristics says:

Those subs were pretty fucking bad. Xythar even points some of the terrible lines down below. “Much better,” you say? That’s a pretty big statement. These subs are horrible.

LotusGG says:

If you say commie is the better of those 3, I’m just avoiding the show.

Solaristics says:

They are far better than what this group managed to pull out. Also, their subs for Twintails was pretty good. You can avoid it and be one of those people, though. (Show’s shit anyway)

Googol says:

It’s horrible. What are you smoking?

name says:

That definitely does not look unedited.

fnord says:

My bad.

Mostly unedited.

Anon says:

>Unedited Funimation
You might want to check your own link.

jumps says:

The fact you had to check tells us you’re paranoid about competition. Do you doubt your own subs so much? Are you really that shit?

fnord says:

I checked because I’m a Nyaa mod and supposed to check what new groups submit.

jumps says:

Right. Except is isn’t a new group, they have other releases on Nyaa.
Just admit you’re looking for imperfections to justify awarding yourself Blue and we can move on.

fnord says:

I can’t award myself blue; someone else on staff has to do it. Besides, it isn’t awarded until ep 2. Based on what I’ve seen so far, I think my subtitles are by far the best, but hey, you never know. Many of the changes by [P] are in fact improvements, and they (partially) fixed at least one really terrible Funi TL mistake, but they didn’t change much and the base Funi script is incredibly poor, so I’m not really holding my breath.

The previous releases by [P] were an unoffical BD batch, an attempt at an original translation of an ONA, and a host of song-spliced remakes.

Do you think fairies flag those remakes red? Someone has to download it at least once and check whats going on.

I regret posting a comparison I made for staff purposes. I should have known better than to assume people would for once show restraint and common sense.

jumps says:

[” Based on what I’ve seen so far, I think my subtitles are by far the best, “]

Honestly, I was willing to give Commie’s release a try, until this was pointed out in /a/
http://archive.moe/a/search/text/Twintails/tripcode/!H.264BdrFs/

You clearly intended to (and did) release Trollsubs.

My Bad.
“Funsubs”

And you were worried that your “Funsubs” were going to be too much “Fun” for even Daiz.

And yet you’re now here claiming to have the “best” subs.

[” Do you think fairies flag those remakes red? “]
I’m not stupid, there is an option for the uploader to flag it themselves.

[” an unoffical “] [” an attempt “]
I’m sure your words were carefully chosen to be as discrediting to the new group as possible.
How can that DXD batch be “unofficial” if they were the only ones to sub the extra BD exclusive scenes?

fnord says:

Go watch Doki or [P] or Funi if you don’t like my subs. Don’t you have plenty of choice? What are you even accusing me of? I honestly don’t know what you faceless nerds all want of me suddenly.

I truly and from the bottom of my heart apologize I shared information with you that I collected for other purposes. It must have offended the hive mind.

arti says:

Welp, not gonna take fnord seriously on anything again.

cheshyre says:

I dunno. Your choices are Funi with TL errors and amazing editing or an original TL by an established translator who wishes to convey the humor and awesome-ness of twintails. I guess it’s up to you what you prefer.

Xythar says:

>There’s no thing strange about me
>You’ll want to ask for her twintails
>At this rate, well soon capture all the twintails in the world
>What do you mean Transform?
>So kawaii
>It’s all-right now

Definitely looks like A+ quality to me. Stick it to the cartel, man!

pengu says:

New poll when?

Dark_Sage says:

Updated.

LotusGG says:

Underwater’s also doing Kiseijuu

Dark_Sage says:

So Daiz hasn’t killed himself yet? Unfortunate, but I’ll add them to the queue.

Xythar says:

https://www.diffchecker.com/n7yr5phe
Asuka Subs does some cool original TLs.

Fyurie says:

Those are some nicely edited Vivid subs. They’re clearly better than your original script!

Xythar says:

I rater agree with you’re opinion.

MM says:

>implying Vivid aren’t the ones editing Asuka’s subs but since they take longer to encode or something Vivid ends up uploading first
Suuuure.

Fyurie says:

He’s on to you, Xythar. Destroy the evidence!

elenrod says:

That reminds, I’m sad the Kanye subs didn’t edit episode 2.

http://puu.sh/c8Z9n/cd8cebf981.png

LotusGG says:

This is why Crunchyroll is killing the fansub scene.

Assasin_Cross says:

Most of the review will have ??? as the winner ( ¬‿¬)

Kamica says:

Will Dark_Sage manage to review the entire queue this season?

PP says:

Unless he becomes a NEET or something within the next month, doubt it.

vivant says:

Watashi also released Parasyte just now.

Anon says:

Is there some reason Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete isn’t in the poll? It’s not in the queue, but it’s not in Out-of-Scope either.

Mehrwerfer says:

Nice list

Kamica says:

It’s been exactly 6 weeks since the last fansub review. Togashi would be proud.

Anonymous says:

Crymore confirmed for dead. ;_;

Sky says:

Sage is still fapping while sniffing his armpit ;_;

Anonymous says:

Does this meet the minimum TL requirement for A+? I didn’t hear her say Hitler’s name, unless his name is different in Japanese, right?

Dark_Sage says:

Guess I’ll do Fate next or something, since it’s dominating the pollstation.

LotusGG says:

That’s a 40 minutes preview if you’re thinking what I’m thinking..

GeassGx says:

Would be more interested if you review [FFF] Inou Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de

LotusGG says:

Did you die again?

Dark_Sage says:

No, I’m writing up a Feito review.

qwerty says:

Fate, I’m guessing.

This should be interesting.

LotusGG says:

In portuguese, ‘feito’ means ‘done’.
Is it done yet?

Dark_Sage says:

No, but I should be able to finish the post when I get off work.

Solaristics says:

D_S, I’m confused here.

Out-of-Scope (releases that I will not review for whatever reason):

You list a bunch here, and Shigatsu (kaylith is on here), but you reviewed it.

Or… Are you just stating it’s an edit of X release?

Dark_Sage says:

I figured I’d start to list HorribleSubs releases when relevant, so I switched up the formatting. Should be pretty intuitive; I list out which releases are disqualified for each show.

PP says:

S_X for Trinity Seven? Then again there’s already a lot of groups doing that show, and the show sucks and I want another Hatsuyuki review, ah choices.

LotusGG says:

Reviews when?

PP says:

◾Parasyte -The Maxim-
◾[Underwater]
◾Disqualified for being barely edited.
Welp.

LotusGG says:

◾Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.
◾[Commie]
◾Disqualified for being barely edited.

Sereft says:

To be fair, Crunchyroll’s script for that was already pretty damn decent. Can’t fix what isn’t broken.

Solaristics says:

CR script is already pretty great. There’s really no use in waiting for a fansub group for it… unless you want better typesetting, etc, which I do.

Googol says:

Considering that Jing is editing Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso for Commie from episode 4, shouldn’t you reconsider the disqualification?

Anonymous says:

It’s basically Kaylith but with no second track for honorifics and it has herkz-tier typesetting (only the essentials / what signs Crunchyroll TL’d and doesn’t look as nice as Kaylith) instead of Kaylith’s amazing typesetting, so I’d rather him spend that time reviewing something else.

Fyurie says:

That’s mostly false now, conkerer is TSing it for Commie as of Episode 5. It’s basically Kaylith’s release without honorifics now.

Anonymous says:

Oh really? Nice. They hadn’t updated the showtimes page yet when I made that comment, so I assumed it’d still be herkz.

tcn says:

>no more herkzsetting
dropped

LotusGG says:

But I heard that the shitty title typesetting will be the same for ~the sake of consistency~
Not sure if commie’s tittle TS is just shit or if kaylith’s was just amazing.

qwerty says:

Both?

My eyes bled when I first saw Commie’s title. I think it gets shitter every time I look at it.

Anonymous says:

Kaylith’s title was so incredibly good I had literally no idea it was typeset. I thought it was like the English text at the bottom and put their by the studio.

Nevreen says:

It’s basically Kaylith’s release with a shitty dialogue font.*

FTFY

Solaristics says:

Just take Kaylith’s editing grade and then slap the Visual grade down a letter or two = Commie.

Anonymous says:

>Commie’s and UTW’s releases are edits of this.
I don’t get it. CR edits are disqualified now? So you’re only reviewing original TLs? And as far as I know, UTW did heavy TLCs on CR’s script and fixed a bunch of errors.

Solaristics says:

Wrong. Read what he said. He’s only gonna note they’re edits and when he disqualifies he will say (Disqualified)

Ryuk says:

Wrong… He said he’s not gonna review Horriblesubs because there’s already 2 edits of it. Why review a different version of the same thing?

PP says:

What Solaristics said is right though.

Rekt says:

Solar-pon onegai shimasu

Ephemere says:

D_S, although you prob won’t get to it, do note FFF is also doing Inou Battle.

LotusGG says:

They’re “doing” Inou Battle.
4 episodes behind and only the first was released.

PP says:

>Fate/stay night / [UTW] / Too slow.
They aren’t the only ones, Feito review never.

LotusGG says:

Ok, we got a new drama setup on the site.
Time to review ???’s ???, don’t you think Dark_Sage?

Sheep says:

Seconded

Why do you have such shit taste?
