Opening. Loved the color changes here.
Ending. I uhh… don’t really know if black text was the best option for an ED where half the time the text is on an extremely dark surface.
Yeah, title translations are hard these days.
That’s a weird fucking capitalization decision. You do realize that for titles when words are linked by hyphens, they still follow the same rules of capitalization, right? Of course you do. You’re fucking GotWoot after all. No way you wouldn’t know that.
Maybe it’s just me, but I have an intense desire to know what she’s putting in her mouth.
These aren’t from the same scene. You can check the timestamps if you want. The beverage seems to be pretty important to the episode, why it’s not typeset I can only chalk up to incompetent staff.
I’m cool with this because it’s not a 20-second sponsor screen; it’s a 4-second, end-of-the-episode screencap.
This is not how alliteration works.
It’s fine to mumble a bit so long as the end result is understandable.
She says “Demo Urabe-san” here. You might think “ohmygod they forgot to translate ‘but'”, but you’d be wrong. It was intentionally left out because it would make the line unwieldy and cut into the flow of the rest of the phrase.
She actually said “Tsubaki-kun” here.
You can transfer a state over to something, but you can’t transfer that state into it.
“My physical and emotional states get transferred over to him.”
They nailed this line. Fucking kanpeki.
You mean “every day”.
Watchability: Quite watchable.
Visual grade: B
Script grade: B+
Overall grade (timing results not factored in): B+
There’s a reason why GotWoot is my favorite group, but there’s also a reason they didn’t want their regular name associated with this release. Still, this is a pretty damn good release. We’ll see how IB stacks up against it.
