Official Subs Review: [Funimation] My Santa (Episode 1)

This post was written by Dark_Sage. He is Dark_Sage.


It’s Christmastime and you know what that means! Yup! Time to watch everyone’s favorite OVA – My Santa!


>reminding me I’d rather be watching Haruhi Suzumiya


>Ken Akamatsu


Nope, my time is worth more than that.



So instead, this is a letter of intent. Assuming I can get everything assembled, we’re gonna be having ourselves a translation party for Bakemonogatari with the following participants:

[qIIq] – A combination of people too stupid for gg (qq) and a Russian fansub group that thought the English scene would be fun.

[Koharubi] – Dark_Sage’s old group, with the subs edited by a Dark_Sage who thought editors were just supposed to check spelling and grammar issues.

[Koharubi] – No, I didn’t stutter. This Koharubi will be rintaun’s re-release for the blus. I can only assume it will be better, but AFAIK he did this all by himself so who the fuck knows?

[gg] – The group to whom I sent QC notes in 2008, informing them they sucked at English. Was I right?

[Aniplex] – A fucking sack of shit company which charged me fucking $150 for a fucking shitty Bake boxset so these better fucking be the best goddamn subs I’ve ever watched in my life.


That is, assuming I can get all that shit. Everything is dependent on the subs I can acquire, and you’ll only know which ones I managed to get when the translation party comes out. I’m basically telling you all this to add -Suspense-. Cuz, like, that’s what I’m supposed to do with a hype post, yeah?

Even if I can’t get everything up, I can assure you it will at least be enjoyable with Puddi’s TL Party system in place. Take it as a test run for what Winter 2013 has in store for us~


Oh, and

        • Umm, what? Excuse me? That is Mew Ichigo (Tokyo Mew Mew) and Snowflake (OC). They are two different individuals and they are not “half neko”. They are a race of superior beings with great powers known as Mew Mews. Please don’t tarnish their names with your dismissive tone.

          Also, the banner carries on the GaiaOnline tradition of placing a Santa hat on your character around holiday time. The more hats, the more holiday spirit, and that’s exactly what you see in my banner.

          Honestly, at least do a little RESEARCH before you post next time!

  1. I remember when gg kicked this guy from their TL team because they found out he was a bilingual English Major and professional translator.

    Good times.

  2. Do you know if anyone translating and timing the commentary for Bake? I downloaded a translated one but the timing made it impossible to watch.
