Yeah, the 07 review was nearly finished, but I figured I’d just do the 08 review anyway. Gotta love holding myself to review standards. :/

Opening. Having each line start with a stylized letter was a cool idea, but it doesn’t look as awesome off the drawing board. The k-timing also seemed off on my end, which combined with my meh impressions of how the karaoke looks in action, didn’t really leave the BEST impression. It’s not bad kara, but it really isn’t all that amazing.
Ending. It’s hard to rank up scores with karaoke like this — but blame the ED, not the groups. White font for a dark background on a slow song generally works well, just not impressively.
I wanna know how they managed to copy that banner. Shit is awesome.
Not even gonna bother with analysis, this was decent stuff. Moving on.
The italics font is really bad alone…
…but when combined with the regular font, it’s a whole ‘nother beast. And by “beast”, I mean “cancerous bundle of AIDS”. What the shit were they thinking?
There are three main walls, one interior wall, and 12 walled towns, guys. You’re gonna have to be slightly more specific than “the wall”.
Lots of confusion here.
Seems like you could get by with one sentence or the other for this line.
You don’t need the “Lastly,” there. It makes the line sound dumbtarded.
It’ll allow seven people to down a Titan each simultaneously?
How in the what?
“That’s why I was able to move until now”? Either this guy’s about five seconds away from going down on Jean or this is wrong.
“But the Garrison consider him to be a threat to humanity and turn their blades on him.” “But the Garrison considers him to be a threat to humanity and turns its blade on him.” I’d go with the first option.
Commenters win again. Here’s some tl;dr: http://www.crymore.net/2013/06/06/fansub-review-evetaku-shingeki-no-kyojin-episode-08/comment-page-1/#comment-53339
In reviews without much content in the post I have two options:
1. Let you know why exactly it is I think a group did well.
2. Easy mode it with fansubber comments/sugoi pics/stupid shit.
I’ll let you choose your (my?) own adventure here.
Watchability: Quite watchable.
Visual grade: B
Based on prior reviews this season, I wasn’t expecting EveTaku to make such a strong showing. But they did, so here we are. Of the releases I’ve reviewed thus far for Shingeki, I think EveTaku’s is the best.
However, I have yet to review gg’s (and I have relatively high expectations for them), so let’s hope there’s an actual choice for the quality option for this show.
