Figured I’d knock out a Golden Time review since there’s only one group actually putting an effort into it.

Opening. The colors match the credits and work just as well on the clean scenes. The positioning is also solid.
Ending. See above comments. It doesn’t take much to make me happy.
Did you notice the subs on the bottom? Good old Commie.
At least the preview sign looks good…
You know that one guy in school who constantly talked over people and thought repeating jokes made them funnier? Yeah, that guy is Commie.
What you have here is an attempt to outdo the inherent comedy of this bit by matching a scream with size-increasing subs. It doesn’t really do much for the scene other than get in the way.
Most people wear branded clothing. What they’re saying here is that she wears name-brand “stuff”.
Absolutely no American student would call a class compulsory. The word we superiors use is “required”.
le hilarity. For you non-natives, this line reads “Come fuck us.”
Obviously, that’s not what they’re saying. Sasuga Commie, the funniest fansubbers around.
Someone tell me how to inherit hospitals. I could use the money.

Commie staff are utterly incapable of taking a show seriously, which makes it all the more unfortunate they did a pretty good job on this release. If you can handle their ham-fisted attempts at being funny, you’ll find decent subs here. Otherwise, you’re best off sticking with HorribleSubs or one of the fakesub releases like Chihiro or FFF.
