Yes, there is a reason 8th says this release is the best. The script’s pretty fabulous. Just ignore the shitty timing, lack of karaoke, and pathetic typesetting. Also, this post sucks, so just move along and note that CR has the best version.
Release format: 720p MKV (325 MB, 8-bit), “1080p” MKV (546 MB), 480p (148 MB)

lol, none. This is a Crunchyroll rip. What did you expect?
You’d think if they were going for a more formal style of speech for these characters that they’d be able to figure out the difference between “may”, “could”, and “can”. And there were other things I’d have changed that were super minor. There’s no reason to have the “after all” in “So that’s what they wanted after all.” and “I’m the only one allowed to shed blood fighting to the death with him.” is laughably terrible writing.
I didn’t take any screenshots because I’m not so sure any of those are really important enough to get pics and/or I’m feeling super fucking lazy right now.
Watchability: Quite watchable.
Overall grade: B+
Yeah, if you wanted to watch the show, go with the HorribleSubs version. The other groups sucked it.
