Things to remember:

  • 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.
    • If the release is edited to the point where it could pass as an original translation, I will also review the original rip.
  • Releases over a month late will not be reviewed.
  • Re-encodes will not be reviewed.


Solaristics says:


More like the Dead_Queue.

Dark_Sage says:

I put this up right before I fell asleep cuz I thought it was a bad look to still have Winter 2015 after I finished the previews. Give me some time to actually see what’s been released.

Solaristics says:

Was a joke ( ¬‿¬)

Dark_Sage says:

Well it made me cry, not laugh ;_;

shaddrag says:


dannphou says:

When are we gonna start seeing some reviews? I’m pretty excited for your Owari no Seraph reviews

Dark_Sage says:

This year for sure.

Qrius says:

I hate it when you get our hopes up like this :(

noko says:

Where’s Ninja Slayer?

Dark_Sage says:

Just updated.

McCoy says:

D_S pls make it DxD review next

Dark_Sage says:

That show has subbable dialogue?

McCoy says:

Saa…. ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌
Some poor souls like me out there might need it ;D

Abunja says:

Oppai review, you mean?

McCoy says:

Just want to know which version has more oppai-related words in the subtitle :¶

Dark_Sage says:

Updated. Dropped some shows on my end, and cleaned the options up as a result.

Gary says:

DxD Born.
Hiryuu (original TL) or FFF (unedited FUNi)?
Review, plz.

Googol says:

The FUNi TL isn’t very accurate from what I saw. I haven’t seen Hiryuu as I don’t really watch this series.

Corbyn says:

According to our TLC, the Funi script is pretty accurate as far as the actual translation. It’s just super literal at times.

Anonymous says:

>Funi script is pretty accurate
Remember when FFF was good?

Welp says:

Ah, yeah, iirc it was about 3-4 years ago when I watched their Baka to Test.

CoffeeFlux says:

FFF may be using funi as a base, but they’re editing it lol

corbyn’s the editor for that project

Gary says:

>FFF may be using funi as a base, but they’re editing…

Not rly.

Corbyn says:

lol ur cute

CoffeeFlux says:


Orco says:

Still waiting for D_S to finish his review (and possibly some dramas) (」゜ロ゜)」

James says:

Did he say which review is coming next somewhere?

Dark_Sage says:

I dunno, the review queue might have the answer.

Lenny says:


Dark_Sage says:

Current Review Order:

1. [HorribleSubs] Shokugeki no Soma

lenny says:


James says:

I wasn’t aware that you actually went by that, it feels like you really just post articles about what you want, when you want, with no discernible pattern.

Which is fine, it’s your website, I just thought the review queue was mostly…satirical, I guess?

Dark_Sage says:

The review queue is generally legit, unless I’m *clearly* making a joke about something. In this case, my Shokugeki review is pretty far along. I have the screens, and I have the bulk of the content written… it’s just that I need to fill in the commentary for ~10 lines. And right now, I’m not in a very writerly mood (AniMinneapolis was draining in the worst way). I anticipate tomorrow will be better.

Solaristics says:

How can the review queue be legit when you’re always dead ;_;7

Orco says:

^This (´• ω •`)

lotusgg says:

>not reviewing panty rain

Dark_Sage says:

Punch Line? It’s coming, I just wanted to do a DxD post first so I could delete the show and clear up some space on my hard drive.

lotusgg says:


Dark_Sage says:

Yahari tonight. Don’t expect FFF to qualify for the comparison though.

Dark_Sage says:

Don’t blame me. It’s their fault for having incompetent staff and leadership.

James says:

I blame you Dark_Sage, I put all the blame on you.

Serious response: I’m really disgusted with their shenanigans. They’re probably producing the best subs, but they aren’t doing it fast enough to be even a little bit relevant. Probably won’t even be done in time for the first BD releases.

We’ll end up with commie subbed blu-rays ;-;

I don’t want memes ruining this seasons best show :(

nigger says:

What memes were in commie’s release? Post some examples

James says:

IDK. I didn’t watch it because the group is known for their memesubs.

That’s what happens when you get a reputation for trolling your user base, people don’t trust you to do the job right and look elsewhere for your product.

nigger says:

But it’s easy to tell if a Commie release will have trollsubs or not. Just look at the type of show and the staff working on it. And more importantly half the stuff people call memes aren’t even memes in the first place. Half of it is just from autsists who think shit like translating Japanese slang into English slang is a meme.

And why wouldn’t you have at least watched an episode first then passed judgment? Really just seems like you’re the one losing out here.

FalseDawn says:

If you have to do more than just looking at the group name, it’s too much to expect the leechers to do, especially as most leechers probably never even set foot near commie’s website where that information can be found.

It’s not a new thing. There was a fairly vast swathe of people who stopped watching shinsen and gg back in the day because of their tendency to put their B-teams on things, meaning you were never quite sure what quality you’d get from them from one series to the next.

Dark_Sage says:

Depends if you consider hamfisted lelreferences and awkward attempts at recreating the conversation patterns of people who would never give Commie devs the time of day to be memes.

“Like, HelloHello, you trying to, like, GEICO me with an ultra-rare trip to America here, ‘sup?”

Nigger says:

That’s what I mean. If subs have that stuff in them then they’re shit. That doesn’t make them memesubs and have “memes” in them, though. Following that guy’s logic, every single release you’ve given a bad review would be “memesubs”, and thinking that would be fucking retarded.

Kristen says:

It doesn’t matter if your stool is little balls or diarrhea, it’s still crap. Such it is to Commie’s memes and localizations.

Nigger says:

You are seriously disgusting.

Kristen says:

So are memes.

Anon says:

I’m so glad you still exist to keep weeaboism in fansubbing alive, it seems that more and more groups are taking the Commie/gg route.

Never stop fansubbing Kris, please never stop.

Dark_Sage says:

Ugh, fuck this show. It sucks, Commie sucks, and Crunchyroll sucks.

I’m just going to read Prison School until I vomit myself to sleep.

James says:

The writing is funny and the character interactions are realistic (at least in season one.) What’s to hate?

Orco says:

>What’s to hate
Umm..the subs, I presume? :3
The show itself is great, at least for me.

Dark_Sage says:

I didn’t like season 1 either. It started off with a solid premise (“fuck romcoms”) that it then turned its back on, completely. A bit hard for me to respect a show that so blatantly disregards its potential.

LotusGG says:

Does ‘saa’ means plamemo? ;_;
