Why is this show so bad? Actually, why are four groups competing on this shit? Fuck you guys; there’s better anime to sub.
Release format: MKV (215 MB, 10-bit)
Japanesiness: I don’t know if there was a point in this episode where honorifics were even used in the Japanese script. So uhh, I dunno.
English style: American English.
Group website: http://ruri-subs.info/ (their site is fucking terrible)

Opening. Shitty, hardsubbed flower karaoke. Not only is it garish, the flowers don’t have anything to do with the OP or the show in general. Whoever’s responsible for this needs to cut open their wrists and hang themselves with their veins. Goddamn is this karaoke fucking retarded.
Ending. Jesus, and just when you thought Ruri couldn’t get more stupid they go ahead and pull out their full retard trump card. Shitty, hardsubbed butterfly karaoke combined with an unreadable font. The ending of this show is the only thing worth watching. Failing at this is essentially failing all of humanity.
There’s hardly anything to typeset, which means Ruri’s visual grade is going to be based almost solely on the karaoke. This won’t end well for them.
Other than this mistimed part, the OP/ED were fine.
This is my kind of language. <3
This line set the tone for a really great script full of clever lines and good phrasing. I was not expecting this from Ruri at all.
A bit too lengthy for the time allotted.
“We’ll make apricot and plum bread when they’re in season.” This is slightly less clear, but at least you can read it before the scene changes.
Food is “good”, not “nice”.
It’s tang, not twang. “twang” is what rednecks do with banjo strings. “tang” is… Well, tang is a lot of things (tang can have a tang of Tang, for example), but here it means “flavor”.
I don’t think your editor knows what the word “nice” means. They need to learn when the fuck to use it.
Hot damn, I loved this line.
Visual grade: F (Some people say it’s better to try and fail than to never try at all. Those people haven’t watched Ruri’s karaoke.)
Script grade: A-
Overall grade (timing results not factored in): B
A-tier script, F-tier karaoke. I should really dock them more, considering the only reason to watch this show is the ending, but the script doesn’t deserve to be associated with their shitty karaoke.
