Fansub Review: [Tsuki] HunterXHunter (Episode 01)

This post was written by Dark_Sage. He is Dark_Sage.


All right, HunterXHunter out of the way at least for now. (Gonna take a short break from the posting marathon to get in a nap and then back to the races!)

Release Format: AVI (172 MB), MKV (8-bit, 380 MB)

Japanesiness: Honorifics. Genei Ryodan, not Phantom Troupe.

Chapters: None. Why? Because Tsuki fails it.



It’s… not very good. The effect is sloppy. But the English translation’s font matches the hardcoded Japanese karaoke at least.

The ending was not translated. If you listen to it, you’ll understand why.




You know, “Wolrd” actually has a nice ring to it. It’s a damn shame it isn’t a word. Oh, and…

“It’s impossible to fail with a CR script, assuming that your editors aren’t complete retards.”

was posted on another HxH review about four hours prior to this review. Good times.

Oh my god. Please, no. Please… no.

They… They somehow managed to irreperably fuck up a CrunchyRoll script. I don’t know what to say.

But you called it Master of the Lake like… four times before this. So why are you changing the name now?

Wait, wait. I know the answer. It’s because Tsuki is made up of morons.

You mean “a few”.

I dunno. Is this a question.

Running off a comma into a capitalized letter? Fabulous job, gents.

What would possess someone to fuck this up? What must be running through their heads as they defy the past 15 minutes for the Hunter convention and then drop the artice from it? Were they really thinking “No, no. I got this. I totally know how to English guys.”?

I wish Tsuki’s editor would drown in the ocean.


And of course everything I complained about in UnMabushii’s version is valid here as well.


Watchability: Watchable only if you realllllllllllly love opening karaoke.

Overall grade: F

These aren’t just mistakes. These were errors which were intentionally added into the script. How stupid do you have to be to do that? I’ll tell you how stupid — Tsuki stupid. Is the release as it stands an “F”? No. But does Tsuki deserve an “F” for the shitty job they did with a decent script? Why yes, they fucking do. Avoid this at all costs and get tidal~’s version. You’ll thank me later.

  1. I LOVE YOU Dark_Sage! Now I can finally decide what fansub I will choose for this marvelous anime. Thank you very much for your hard work!

    • Just to make it clearer, it’s tidal~ version, not this. Kind of obvious, but my last comment was too open to interpretation… lol

  2. Hell yeah, that’s what I like.
    Thanks for great work, sleep well and come back soon with more reviews (only As to watch and some Fs to laugh at would be perfect… yeah, unrealistic dream).
