Fansubbers often add comments to scripts that people can’t see unless they take the time to demux the scripts and look at them. Yes, we know most people won’t even read what we’re writing. But we didn’t choose the sub life; it chose us.
Presenting: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure episode 7 – The Fansub Reaction Files
Each group’s comments will be included below each line they’re commenting on. Lines with multiple comments will have extra comments in red.
MMM – All Business, Editing Comments Only
Since these comments were pretty professional, I’m just gonna reply directly to the editor.
Nope. I thought it was pretty sugoi myself.
And you’re right to take them.
Nope, just enough. I actually did a little fist pump when I got to this part because you didn’t use “cruel”.
You’re really gonna pull out apropos in a fucking script comment? You… I like you. We should be friends.
This was a fantastic edit. Good decision.
“He seems troubled/frustrated/pensive.” You get the idea. Anyway, your line is fine as-is, but if you really wanted to go with something a bit more common-tongue, just find the adjective you want to use and you’re good to go.
I assume this screenshot does not contain the original line the editor was talking about. No smiles on the MudaMudaMuda Express. :(
You were right, MMM.
Commie: C. Not nearly enough reactions. I had high expectations, Commie!
MMM: C-. Why so serious?
Nutbladder: C+. Clearly the go-to group for JoJo.
While we did come away with a winner (Nutbladder), y’all need to step up your game. This is the most important part of fansubbing, dammit. :/
