gg vs. Nutbladder vs. ZUM. I hope you enjoy this spectacle of retardation.
NOTE: The groups below are in random order.
Episode featured: Mawaru Penguindrum 05
Here’s how the party works:
>> is used to indicate when another character speaks.
The gist of a TL Party is that I will show you each group’s lines for a particular scene. The goal here is for you to decide which group you think did the best job. Each group is anonymized and placed in a random order, so you’ll only see Group 1/Group 2/Group 3/etc.
At the bottom of the post is a spoiler tag which you may click to reveal which group did which. It’s best to play this as a game, deciding which groups did the best and which did the worst and guessing which number corresponds to which group.
Zum :: Large Typhoon 13 is moving north,
toward the Kanto region.
Nutbladder :: A typhoon warning has been announced for Honshu as Typhoon 13 approaches.
It’s currently entering the upper atmosphere over Kanto.
gg :: Major Typhoon #13 has reached Northern Japan after moving along the coast.
It is currently passing through Kanto area.
Zum :: I have encountered many cases in my tenure as a doctor,
but your sister’s case is the first one that I can clearly call a miracle.
Nutbladder :: I don’t often come across miracles in my line of work,
but what happened to your sister certainly appears to be one.
gg :: In this line of work, we encounter cases we’re forced to call “miracles” once in a blue moon
Your sister’s is one of them.
Zum :: Why laughter, of course, laughter!
That hat’s a mask for laughter!
Nutbladder :: Laughter!
Laughter is the best medicine!
gg :: Laughter, it’s laughter!
Laughter strengthens your immune system.
Zum :: That hat came from outer space? It’s an extraterrestrial being?
That is a great story! It’s a perfect way to make your sister laugh every day!
Nutbladder :: That hat’s supposed to be an alien… Lifeform, you say?
And you cheer your sister up by joking around with her about it!
gg :: That hat came from the space?
Keep making your sister laugh like that!
Zum :: But … I think I may have seen someone right before the accident.
I did see someone there—a girl!
>>Could you recognize who she was?
Nutbladder :: But I remember seeing someone right before it happened…
I saw him right then!
>>Oh, is that what you saw?
gg :: But… I thought I saw someone right before the accident.
I remember it now!
I saw him…
>>You witnessed him?
Zum :: The police are collecting statements regarding the suspect’s possible identity in this case.
Nutbladder :: The police are continuing to interview witnesses.
gg :: The police is continuing their investigation by searching for witnesses.
Zum :: For now, I still want to be Papa’s special treasure.
Nutbladder :: Right now I’m Daddy’s little girl.
gg :: I want to remain as Daddy’s precious treasure, for now.
Zum :: We’ll have two Seafood Curry Specials. That’s fine with you, right Papa?
Nutbladder :: Two orders of the seafood curry lunch!
You’re fine with that, right, Daddy?
gg :: Two Seafood Curry Lunchs.
That’s fine with you, right, Daddy?
Zum :: Hey, why don’t we go to that aquarium again?
Yeah, the aquarium you and Mama often brought me to.
Nutbladder :: Hey, let’s go to the aquarium again!
Yeah! The one in Ikebukuro we always used to go to with Mom!
gg :: Let’s go to that aquarium again next time.
Yes, the one we used to go all the time with Mommy.
Zum :: You liked the penguins’ march so much, you fell in line with them.
Everyone at the aquarium got so mad at you! Wasn’t that exciting?
Nutbladder :: Remember, you liked the march of the penguins so much
that you blocked the aisle taking pictures and made people mad!
gg :: Remember when you tried to get a closer look at the penguin parade,
and a zookeeper yelled at you?
Zum :: All three of us went together; you even bought me a penguin cellphone strap.
>>Ah, I remember now. Ringo was always chasing after the penguins.
Papa, you said penguins were made just for me—
Nutbladder :: And we each got penguin phone straps as souvenirs!
>>You like penguins, don’t you.
You said it was so perfect that it was like they made it just for me!
gg :: The three of us bought matching phone straps too.
>>Oh, right, we did.
>>You really love penguins.
You said this strap was like made for m-
Zum :: Oh Tabuki, you’re so Fabulous Max!
>> I can’t keep my eyes off this cake!
Nutbladder :: Tabuki, you’re fabulous to the max!
>> It tastes so great I have to love it!
gg :: Tabuki, you’re so fabulous max!
>> This taste!
>> It’s making me fall madly in love!
Zum :: Kan sure is late.
>>Sheesh, is he so busy that he can’t even call?
>>He’s always with one woman or other though, so it’s no surprise. That idiot!
“I’m Kanba! I’m so popular with the ladies!” Just like that?
Nutbladder :: Kam’s late.
>>Jeez, he can’t even call?
>>He’s probably out with some girl again.
>>What a loser.
I hate it when he does that!
gg :: Kan’s late.
>>Sheesh, what’s he doing without even contacting us?
>>I bet he’s with a girl right now, as usual!
“I don’t want to be infected by yucky playboy Kanba-germs!”
Zum :: It’s okay. My mom always works until late.
>>No way! We’re not waiting for that idiot brother of mine.
Nutbladder :: Don’t worry about it. My mom always stays late at the office anyway.
>>No, no! There’s no reason to wait for that dumbass!
gg :: It’s okay, my mom always come home late from working overtime…
>>There’s no need to wait for that idiot brother of ours!
Zum :: But isn’t just a schedule and some notes you have?
Nutbladder :: Isn’t it just your plans and what you’re really like to do!?
gg :: But they were just random plans… more like your ambition!
Zum :: Listen to me seriously. This hat is actually …
an extraterrestrial being.
Nutbladder :: I want you to listen to what this hat really is. Don’t be shocked.
It’s an alien lifeform!
gg :: Don’t be shocked when I tell you, it’s actually…
this hat’s is actually…
an extraterrestrial organism.
Zum :: If we don’t listen to what it says
>>Don’t you dare …
>>Don’t you bloody dare take me for a fool!
Nutbladder :: If I don’t follow its orders…
>>Are you serious?
>>Don’t tease me like that!
gg :: If we disobey…
>>Stop screwing with me.
>>Stop screwing with mel!
Zum :: Nadine!
Nutbladder :: Imagine!
gg :: Imagine!
Zum :: Relinquish your wild, baseless, vulgar desires—
in other words, hand over that thing you call your Destiny Diary.
Nutbladder :: Get over your psycho fantasies.
Give the brat your “fate diary”.
gg :: Hurry and hand over your rotten delusional ambition, this “Fate Diary,” to that dumbass.
Zum :: How … how … how dare you?!
Go to hell!
Nutbladder :: Don’t make fun of me!
gg :: Don’t underestimate me!
Zum :: Life Strategy, level up!
Nutbladder :: We’re developing a strategy for survival!
gg :: Survival Strategy in progress.
Zum :: group 1
Nutbladder :: group 2
gg :: group 3
[Note: Group 3’s karaoke font is usually better, but they forgot to mux in chapters/fonts. Even after being informed of this, they didn’t think it would be worthwhile to release a vNutbladder :: So this is indeed the font of their 05, but keep in mind it’s usually better.]
Your call. Which group sucked the most and which sucked the least?
THIS IS A MARKER FOR WHERE THE IMAGES END
