What’s so sad is that the original HorribleSubs script was far better before Chiki ripped it. That means that nearly every error here was added on purpose by Chiki’s editor. No mistakes, just sheer incompetence. That’s the Chiki way.
At least in this v2, they fixed from the v1 the multiple lines which lacked ending punctuation, those which had “i” in lowercase, and those which lacked a capital letter at the beginning of sentences.

Release format: MKV
Note: Like the previous one, I did the QC on the v1 version and then compared the v2 script to it to see if the mistakes were fixed.
The perfect setup for the QUALITY yet to come.
The narrator describes Chiki’s editor.
Pen named? His pen is named Akutagawa?
There is only supposed to be one line here. “Ero-fucker” came out of nowhere and I’m pretty sure wasn’t supposed to have been included.
In the v2, they changed the dash to a semicolon. But the principle problem remains the same.
They managed to realize this should be “students” in the v2, but they didn’t realize this line is redundant.
“But given that female students continue to misunderstand you…”
Gonna copy/paste my critique from Commie’s line here:
People don’t reach the status of literature. He’s talking about his writing.
“Using my prowess as a pornographic writer, my writings will someday reach the status of literature!”
I thing you spelled something wrong.
Capitalizing random words. Why? Because anime is Random like Pandas and Peaches and Tacos! Taco taco taco! Ahaha LOL bbl
Close, but oh so far.
Words cannot what I’m feeling right now.
Edit: Never mind. “Intense loathing” accurately sums it up.
Again, “puberty pig” is a bad word. Not sure I have a fix besides “stop subbing”.
Overall grade: F
By fucking up a decent script this badly, they’ve gone beyond the call of fail. Taking the script by itself may have resulted in a D-, but they actually had to manually create errors in a script that wasn’t that bad to begin with.
Their v1 was definitely worse, but at least they’re trying to put out better stuff with their v2s. Still, I don’t think this group has much staying power with the quality of the work they do (there were many, many errors I didn’t bother to document in this post). I’d suggest going with Commie’s version for this release, but they dropped it. Instead, go with HorribleSubs.
P.S. BlackRussian, aka Mr. ” as an outsider it [Chiki’s release] was better than the version commie released”, please stop talking about things you don’t understand. I avoided reviewing Chiki’s releases for a reason. Their staff is full of newfags who don’t know what they’re doing and I figured they’d quit fucking with anime scripts if people stopped giving them so much goddamn attention.
You know what happens when newfags get attention? They always fucking beg for more. So when Linx (aka Chiki) ran out of people to pay attention to his own shitty releases, he resorted to taking derp’s script for Itsuka and pretending it was his own.
[11.07.11|17:57:49] 12( Chiki ) u there
[11.07.11|18:02:23] 12( Squiggy ) Dude
[11.07.11|18:02:30] 12( Squiggy ) You took our script
[11.07.11|18:02:37] 12( Squiggy ) Why are you even talking to me?
[11.07.11|18:03:09] 12( Squiggy ) Moreover, you fucked it
[11.07.11|18:05:37] 12( Chiki ) sorry for using the script
But since you popped up and accused me of being biased toward Commie or someshit, here’s your goddamn review. Chiki is objectively shit and you’re objectively retarded for thinking their release (their v1 release, even) was watchable, let alone better than Commie’s. Please shut up now.
