Yes, I’m considering 2009 to be old.

I swear, if I didn’t let people know I was just watching fansubs, they’d think I have bulimia.
That is some goddamn stupid k-timing. Pointless effects combined with an unreadably small font… and then you get small fonts for the English too, making it impossible to read, especially when the credits overlap the English. Fucking stupid, stupid shit.
Not even fucking close.
That’s some dandy banding.
Good TL guess, but he’s referring to a human here. So the line should be “Who is that?”
“took”? What? You probably mean “took on”.
I had no clue what the fuck he was talking about until the next line where they mention something about “drink”. Fucking non-specific shit subs are not cool.
“I’m fine.” is one thing. “Fine, fine.” is another. They’re like genitals and fire ants — they don’t mix well.
It’s episode 6. How do you not know how to em-dash yet?
The fuck is “all of a sudden” doing there all of a sudden?
Yes, That’s exactly how commas work, Well done, Solstice.
I know you heard “tonikaku” but that doesn’t mean you have to fucking cipher it into “Anyway”. Does not work at all here.
Fingers as in… what? Chicken fingers? Someone else’s fingers? Fingers you just found lying on the floor?
“You curl your fingers into a ring like this…”
“it”? The fuck does “it” refer to? She’s talking about fingers, which is plural. Also, you don’t place your fingers on the udder — you milk from the teats.
“Then you place your fingers on the cow’s teats like this…”
When you talk about my woman, you damn well better capitalize her name.
“It means Lady Luck is smiling on me.”
You don’t use commas for non-grammatical pauses. Use ellipses for that.
Commas so difficult!
“The forest, which lies between the castle and the bridge, comes up to the ramparts.”
What exactly can he smell? Fear? Victory? Period blood-stained panties? Dammit, Solstice, I wanna fucking know!
$5 says the editor is a fucking idiot and changed this from “At this rate there will just be unnecessary bloodshed!”
“Big Brother!” It’s his fucking name/title. Capitalize it.

These are some elementary errors on what is honestly an elementary script.
Here’s a sample from the script so you can see what exactly I’m talking about:
Just get it together.
Hey, you’re pretty good!
What? It’s just a skin?
The fire is out and I can’t get it to start again.
Then use this.
A seal’s skin.
It was washed up on shore.
On the shore?
This is not a hard script to deal with, so having anywhere close to the number of errors Solstice had is pretty unforgivable. Pretty fucking pathetic effort from Solstice on this show.
As for the Tears to Tiara? Seems like harems were once good. Let’s have an AMV to celebrate. (The music is by Nickelback, so if you’re a whiny bitch, don’t fucking watch it.)
