Continuing on with the next thing I found in my assortment of oldsubs…

Oh come on guys. Boring old white text? Where are the colors? The k-timing? This is fucking shit.
Insert. Come on, CA. Are you even trying?
Terrible font/color choice. What are you doing?
Needs just a little bit more blur.
Never heard of fading?
That is some goddamn stupid positioning.
Terrible, all around.
Horrible styling and line breaking. Shoulda named their group [Eyecancer]
“go” is a pretty shitty word to use here. Try “travel”.
Don’t capitalize capital in this context.
Is that a fucking double space? Come on, CA. Have you even heard the term “QC”?
They have a space before each exclamation mark and question mark in this release. Stupid .
What the fuck is that supposed to mean? No, really, I don’t understand their version of English.
Oh, CA. You should stop using such terrible generitranslations.
Where’d you pick that nasty habit up from? Ayako?
“Your tea is the absolute best.”
A regular colon would have been the preferred choice.
More like “democratic republic”. Fucking scrubs.
If you want to use the non-accent standard for fiance/fiancee, that’s fine, but don’t screw them up. The fiance is the man and the fiancee is the woman. Because it’s a woman speaking, I think you can guess which one you were supposed to use.
A bit redundant. If he died at the Battle of Astate it’s pretty obvious he died in battle.
This is the dumbest way to stutter, ever. Use dashes, please.
This was the perfect opportunity for some topical editing. Maybe a “YOLO” or “Swag” would have been a good choice.
Barring that, a playful acknowledgment here would have been useful. Something like, “I can see that.” would be nice.
How the fuck do you “purge” an act of treason?
as such, must be purged. -> as such, you must be purged.
Curse words in an oldsub? I think some of the literalfags out there may have something to learn from this.
Huh? Try “We are the PKC, and we truly love our country!”
I don’t even know if what you just said is English or not. Leaning toward “not”.
You mean “either”.
Nice scene bleed. The fuck are you timing on, an Amiga?
I have no clue what the fuck’s going on in these scene. Not a great way to handle fansubbing, CA.
I don’t think “unstoppable” means what you think it means.
“…because of this, the war will probably begin anew.”
He said it dismissively. You’d be better off with “In the end, I’m but a soldier.”
What a jumbled mess of tenses.
And another timing mistake. Nice. Except it’s not nice. It’s terrible. :(

These aren’t very good subs by today’s standards. But credit where credit’s due. This is the oldest group that’s still around today, and one of the oldest groups in fansubbing, ever. These guys helped lay the foundation for the fucked-up mess of autists, failures, power trippers, and creepers that make up the fansubbing community today.
And I couldn’t love them more for it.
