Shows I don’t no one gives a fuck about:

  • Hetalia – World Twinkle (Fuck Hetalia fans.)

  • Junjou Romantica (Fujoshi plz. Isn’t Dark_Sage enough for you? ;_;)
  • Non Non Biyori Repeat (.)
  • Prison School (Maybe)

You won’t see these until I finish season 1, if I ever even bother:

  • Aquarion
  • Gatchaman Crowds
  • Symphogear

 

 

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 attempt to 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 attempt to review the original rip.
  • Releases over a month late will not be reviewed. As if I’m one to judge.
  • Re-encodes will not be reviewed.

I look forward to your reviews this season.

There’s been that thing with H&D Symphogear and also HS Charlotte that would be ripe to pick.

Anon says:

CR’s Charlotte is one of the lamest translations this season. The dialogues don’t even flow nicely.

flipr says:

Man, I need someone to sort through all of the DB super subs so that I don’t have to. I picked one at random and wanted to gouge my eyes out… hopefully they aren’t all as shitty as I’d expect them to be.

RDF says:

Dragon Ball Super – 001 – The Peace Prize, Who’ll Get the 100 Million Zeny [DragonTeam][8FDC5246]

Dark_Sage says:

Dragon Ball is a legit priority for me.

RandomComment says:

Can you review Kangoku Gakuen from funi? This is so bad, that I almost dropped show at 1st episode…

LotusGG says:

Given the super high amount of animes getting subbed this season, I think D_S can finally review all non hs-only in this season!

anon says:

>animes

Dark_Sage says:

Here’s tonight’s game plan:

1. Get drunk
2. Watch Dragon Ball
3. Don’t fall asleep
4. Seriously, don’t fall asleep, even though Dragon Ball’s more boring than biographies
5. Probably fall asleep

This may be the first plan I execute… just like a plan.

pi says:

could you please make a review for overlord since the only people that seem to be doing that one are funimation and their video quality is garbage + these 2 groups named Shitime and ayy, promising, right?

Koby says:

Just go with ayy.

Period says:

ayy would be the choice for Overlord.

LotusGG says:

TBD = To Be Dead

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, yeah, I’m writing. Chillax. :<

Dark_Sage says:

Oh my god, AnimeRG is… Well, I hope the liquor doesn’t take me under before I get this review in. Hadena is fucking back.

Koby says:

AnimeRG just takes other anons stuff and puts it to an even shittier encode. Anything they produce should be ignored or marked similarly as a re-encode.

Dark_Sage says:

Except in this case they’re using an “original” translation, in that they’re the first to release with said subs. Hard to call that a re-encode.

LotusGG says:

http://prntscr.com/7t8jn4 – I’d guess it’s super dragon testicles

Koby says:

DB Super they’re using the Google Translate subs elspark15 keeps uploading separately to nyaa. So, again they’re not first nor is it their own subs. They’re just muxing someones shitty Google Translate subs into SOFCJ-Raws video for quick downloads.

Dark_Sage says:

And yet they’re first past the post for the video release. Would you rather I review a script alone and skip the screenshots? Cuz that ain’t happening.

Koby says:

I’d honestly not waste my time reviewing something known to have just been copy/pasted into Google Translate which also doesn’t even have the full episode subbed (apparently was missing multiple lines according to comments), but this is CryMore so of course go ahead and spend the time reviewing known garbage for more comments and a laugh.

Dark_Sage says:

Maybe if it only had ~200 downloads I could justify turning a blind eye, but this is the most popular fansub release of the entire season so far. It’s not exactly something I can just hope will disappear if I really wish it.

CoffeeFlux says:

30k DOWNLOADS
GOOGLE TL
LOL

seriously, though, why do people have such low standards :\

LotusGG says:

^ how many subscribers funimation has?

QQwerty says:

The people defending it in the comments though.

Dylan21 says:

Translation party between Funi vs Chihiro vs Commie would be nice. Also DameDesuYo vs Vivid for Gakkou Gurashi!.

Oily greasy says:

I don’t like translation parties, so please no.

LotusGG says:

but i do, so please gtfo

Gary says:

Learn how to encode first.

LotusGG says:

drama has wings it seems

Gary says:

Said the worst encoder on earth.

LotusGG says:

oh i took the bait

pi says:

but i don’t, so please gtfo

Kristen says:

Translation parties honestly are fairly boring. I’d much rather see D_S wail on a group and get lots of drama in the comments than just see what each group wrote and make my own comparisons.

pi says:

still no updates, sigh…

Tomorrow, right? And if there aren’t any updates tomorrow I’ll just read this again.

Dark_Sage says:

Not tomorrow. Well, depending on your clock, maybe.

Dark_Sage says:

There’s your scope + order.

pi says:

Well, thanks.

QQwerty says:

Danchigai (~3 mins) and Okusama (10 mins) are shorts, not standard length, D_S.

Dark_Sage says:

The list only gets more and more manageable! \o/

LotusGG says:

I’d recommend to review okusama with the doors closed.

pi says:

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

LotusGG says:

Hyaku doing aoharu x kikanjuu, sagey.

SomeGuy says:

Will you review CabbageSubs’ Himouto? They seem to be the same staff from Hadena.

Dark_Sage says:

That would mean I’d have to watch Himouto.

Welp says:

Fakesub review, pls.

Dark_Sage says:

Turns out I like Himouto. Lemme update the queue (gimme like 30).

SomeGuy says:

Nice, thanks.

pi says:

Just lost my faith in fansubbing again, like I wasn’t disappointed enough already, but now underwater aren’t releasing new episodes of gangsta since their editor “has gone missing”, LOL(I was happy because I didn’t have to endure funimation’s garbage and they weren’t even releasing the episodes on time). That’s what you get for having a little faith in modern fansubbers.

“It should come out after he resurrects.” They might as well tell us to all fuck off. Yeah, it’s only been like 2 weeks since we’ve released a new episode, so relax.

I started reading the manga after watching the first 2 episodes and I’m loving it and it was a fantastic decision and the moral of the story is to take a dump on fansubbers.

Qrius says:

For a second there I thought you were being serious, but I guess no one is THAT dumb…

…right?

Hairy says:

That show’s being edited by Jing. Dude is unreliable as fuck. None of the shows he edits get finished, or someone else has to pick up his slack.

nussbuster says:

Comment by Daiz | Posted on 25.07.2015 16:44 #

Gangsta. is dropped guys. The show has been Jinged. My deepest apologies.

Googol says:

I don’t think that’s the real Daiz. UW’s comment section is full of trolls.

KoolKidsK says:

Uh, he finished Terror in Tokyo.

Also, Jing’s a riajuu. He like, actually has a life.

Anon says:

So? Life or not, he’s still unreliable.

He could have at least PM’d Daiz and said “Hey, I’m busy with work for the next two weeks” or whatever, instead of simply vanishing.

He’s been in the fansubbing community for a while, and has pulled something like this many times before. I’m surprised that groups still put up with his shit.

Hairy says:

He also killed Kaylith.

Koby says:

Fyurie killed Kaylith…

addityo says:

and death parade..

pi says:

and what do you fucking know they dropped gangsta, useless shit fansub confirmed

rep says:

Diaz is dumb or something? They could use Crunchyroll video.

pi says:

and they disabled comments on the website too, lol, inb4 underwater disbands

Dark_Sage says:

Pathetic. Not that I’d expect any less from them, honestly.

Anon says:

Gangsta is FUNi, so it’s hardsubbed. There’s no CR. About the comments, I’m glad they did. Fucking trolls all over the place. At least now they get the fuck out.

Gary says:

There is CR:
http://www.nyaa.se/?page=search&cats=0_0&filter=0&term=gangsta+seiya

Here you go. UW is just too dumb to use it.

Dark_Sage says:

And… updated. I always forget how long it takes to validate that subs aren’t just straight HorribleSubs rips.

Adolf Hitler says:

How long does it take?

Dark_Sage says:

From the list I already had, to my validated one (and making sure I had all the latest episodes from every in-scope group)… 2.5 hours.

Adolf Hitler says:

Is that innings-hours or decimal hours?

Period says:

[Glue] for Rokka? Though, looks to be a retimed CR script if you go by their EP3:

https://www.diffchecker.com/gsjqqdil

Made that last week to show someone. Left is CR, if I recall.

Dark_Sage says:

In their 01 release they call it “CR-slightly-edited” which translates to “basically unedited”. Since they’re already upfront about it, I don’t see the need to bring it up once again here.

QQwerty says:

Best OP/ED posts when?

Dark_Sage says:

Did round 1 last night (70 shows takes up a lot of time). Hopefully I can get it out tonight. Worst case, expect it Wednesday.

QQwerty says:

Looking forward to seeing how tone-deaf everyone is =p.

Dark_Sage says:

Worst case, the fucking hotel internet can’t fucking handle my brilliant encodes.

OPs/EDs chosen. Look to a Thursday release and then… a Friday morning one would make sense. All OPs in one, all EDs in the other. Place your bets now.

Tazik says:

Now that Underwater’s done with Gangsta, whose releases should I go with? Alternatively, you could just tell me whose releases of Gangsta you follow.

Dark_Sage says:

Your only real option is HorribleSubs at this point.

pi says:

pretty sad you can only watch the AOTS with funishit

#basedfansubbing

Tazik says:

GG. And thanks. On another note, should I go for Some-Stuffs’ JoJo: SC or HorribleSubs’?

Gary says:

Get HS video, and put Buddy Waters subs onto it.

Tazik says:

Aye, lemme see how that works out.

pi says:

I find it ironic that the underwater website has one banner that says:

“UNDERWATER
not a trainwreck”

Yeah, ok.

nussbuster says:

What about their irc topic, “Killing anime one release at a time(tm)”?

I think they changed their minds about killing anime.

Kristen says:

RIP, reviews. Q_Q

Dark_Sage says:

;_;

Tazik says:

Is TI5 holding you down? That’s a pretty acceptable excuse, imo.

Dark_Sage says:

Sakura Clicker, actually, but you were pretty close.

Dark_Sage says:

For real though, it’s hard to write when I’m in a hotel room, cuz the Marriott I’m usually in throws a mirror above the computer table, resulting in me spending about 5 hours posing to shitty fujoshi AMVs before I pass out from the sheer amount of sagacity I subjected myself to.

Tazik says:

When do you reckon you’ll be back?

Dark_Sage says:

I don’t know. Most of what I’ve been writing lately hasn’t fit my standards, so I’ve just trashed it entirely. Like… I’m just staring at this Gangsta review I’ve been working on for the past three hours tonight, and it’s… boring, so I ain’t gonna release this one to the public either. And the backlog I’m looking at is like a fucking sinkhole.

Don’t much like talking about my writing process, so I’m just gonna stop before I turn this into a Live Journal… but yeah… I’m not pleased with how things are going, and outside of sabotaging my personal and professional life, I’m left with precious few opportunities to get back into my own good graces.

Oops, this turned into a Live Journal after all. Night, dear diary. Maybe we’ll craft a good story tomorrow when I get back home from work at midnight~

James says:

Please darksage, you think I come here to be entertained?

I just need you to tell me which sub groups fucked up the least so I can get on with the watching.

Tazik says:

The ‘dark’ humour is one of D_S’s strongest suits.

Dark_Sage says:

There are myriad reasons why someone would come to Crymore. Rather then categorize them and develop content strategies like a goddamn new media shitbag, I’d rather just focus on what I’ve always done and write under the assumption that everyone reading the site is me. That way I only create content I’m happy with, and the people who appreciate the posts will all be on my level.

Which show has you wringing your hands over the choices?

Tazik says:

>Which show has you wringing your hands over the choices?
As in, the shows you’re reviewing?

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah. Though I was talking to James mostly, cuz I know he’s more results focused than most.

James says:

I’m hoping you tell me a better script than what I’ve been seeing from Funimation pulls Akagami out of the mire of mediocrity,

I’m practically on the edge of my seat waiting to hear whether or not Flax (AboveTheSea) succeeded in saving Gangsta after it got Jinged™,

I want to know which of the four (yes four, really, in the days of dead fansub groups, I’m confused too,) options does the best job on Gate,

but most importantly I’m waiting to hear if Hiryuu manages what Funimation can’t: translating the dirty jokes and puns in Shimoneta in a way that makes them more than just awkwardly dropped vulgar words that don’t fit the context.

Though if I’m being honest I’ll probably stick with Shimoneta and Gate even if I have to use horriblesubs releases, they’re pretty good and the scripts are tolerable. I saw an early release of Gangsta ep. 1 on kissanime, it was only up for like a few hours before it got swapped, it had 0 character, I’m currently assuming that was the funimation rip and they’ve ruined one of the best shows.

Dark_Sage says:

Shimoneta… That actually could be an interesting one to write. With Gangsta the most interesting thing to talk about was eponyms.

Flax isn’t really a fansub group, so don’t have high expectations for their Gangsta release.

Kristen says:

This is just my opinion, but I think most of the entertainment on this website comes from the people reading it. Hearing you say that Commie devs should jump off a cliff is fun, sure, but it’s far more entertaining to watch people white knighting them and trying to defend obviously poor lines.

Unfortunately, the few posts you make are usually about official subs, and nobody gets up in arms about that.

Anon says:

It’s more fun when we can see the shit that Chihiro and CGi put out.

Tazik says:

So even the great Dark_Sage is not immune to the fatal poison often known as ‘Writer’s Block.’ *Plays Sad But True in the background*

Tazik says:

>*Accurate as of 6:00 PM CDT, 7/27.

Dark_Sage says:

I’m… kinda behind.

Dark_Sage says:

Review order updated, queue itself… not really.

QQwerty says:

>reviewing the worst show

pls

lotusgg says:

lel cc isn’t actually bad. It’s just 40% bad, 20% unpredictable plot, 10% grills and 30% good.

Dark_Sage says:

I didn’t want to, but the subs were so shit I felt obligated to warn the world. :/

Nina Simone says:

I feel like the word “warn” suggests that you’re communicating vital information before a possible catastrophe…

Dark_Sage says:

I didn’t say it was gonna be a timely warning.

Period says:

By the way, Working!!! (s3) shows were tagged with Working’!! (s2). It’s like that on the Review Summary page as well.

Dark_Sage says:

That’s… going to be difficult to fix. When a show gets slotted under a season, the review summary locks that name in place. You can see how it even does that for Classroom Crisis, which has only been written as a draft.

To fix that, I used to have fibi go into the database and work some shenanigans, which I’m wary of touching myself. So yeah, not exactly as easy as changing it in the post itself.

Period says:

More reviews when?

Dark_Sage says:

Ranpo Kitan review today.

Dark_Sage says:

Well, I finished that quicker than expected. :<

Dark_Sage says:

Uhh… fuck, let’s see what I can do tonight. Should probably stop playing drinking games during this Republican debate first though. :<

lotusgg says:

You need brazillian drinking games.

Dark_Sage says:

I think I need sleep more right now.

lotusgg says:

No one can sleep while on brazillian drinking games, you have to puke first.

Dark_Sage says:

Apathy is a hell of a drug.
