Up first on the Spookymore agenda is Parasyte. Also, acquiring some pizza. But first Parasyte.

Opening. They didn’t sub the OP.

Rating: N/A

Ending. Hatsuyuki may not be able to English, but they sure can make karaoke faggy enough to leave viewers with just the faintest hint of flavored condom in their mouths.

Rating: Good. Tonight’s offering is cherry, and I happen to like cherry.

Not sure how Hatsu got “unraveled hair” from “disheveled hair”, but okay.




Script Review



once <-> you


Main Script.

[Hatsuyuki]_Kiseijuu_-_Sei_no_Kakuritsu_-_03_[1280x720][5B53ACDE].mkv_snapshot_02.26_[2014.10.31_20.20.37] [Hatsuyuki]_Kiseijuu_-_Sei_no_Kakuritsu_-_03_[1280x720][5B53ACDE].mkv_snapshot_02.29_[2014.10.31_20.20.47]

Reality? This wouldn’t even fly in make-believe land. You’re just throwing random words that you hear in Japanese or English into the pre-constructed Crunchyroll sentences and hoping it works out.

It doesn’t, nor will it ever.

I’d suggest everyone who worked on this script go back to their native language’s scene to sub, but I’m pretty sure those scenes don’t want anything to do with people broken enough to sub for Hatsuyuki. So instead I’ll have to recommend that Hatsuyuki devs kill themselves instead. That way everyone wins. Most especially the Hatsuyuki devs’ families.


Look, I understand you’ve watched a lot of One Piece, but you can’t just fucking TL “nakama” as comrade simply cuz you recognize the word from one context.

Migi ain’t saying he’s besties with the other parasyte; in fact, he’s been very fucking adamant that the only thing he cares about is himself, and considers other parasytes to be his enemy. So don’t sub this show like he’s buddy-buddy with them, you dimwitted dumbasses.

You know what you should call a substitute teacher, Hatsuyuki? It’s not a riddle; I just fucking told you. Get it together, guys. Christ.


Normally I wouldn’t point this out, since the line is acceptable on its own, but look at what they’re doing to the official subs:

Original: She’s quite the looker.

The script is being hacked up like they have a butcher’s license.


Again, they commit their version to being worse than the original.

Now, I know I warned you all about how spooky Spookymore can get, but in case some of you in the audience have anxiety issues about mutilated English, I’m gonna hide the original lines behind spoilers going forward.

Spoiler for
Original: Not to mention, she’s teaching humans.

It only gets worse from here on out, so brace yourself.


What, from like 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock?


Spoiler for
Original: I am curious about you.

Spoiler for
Original: I’d like to exchange information and discuss the future with you.


Spoiler for
Original: Easy for you to say!

Yes, I know. But I have faith that you can find the strength of will to make it through the rest of these.


Spoiler for
Original: Yes, an ordinary human baby.

If the Romans made Jesus watch a Hatsuyuki release instead of putting him on a cross, I daresay they would’ve spared themselves quite a headache.

What could possess someone to write like this? Someone needs to perform an exorcism with acid. Poisoned acid.


You can’t make this shit up.


Spoiler for
Original: You will now study on your own.


Thanks, Hatsu. I needed that clarification. Was afraid he entered out.


Who’s coming up with these lines? Seriously, how broken do you have to be to think this is how a sentence should be written? I’m pretty sure childhood rape victims hold it together better than these lines do.


Spoiler for
Original line: “I had forgotten what you are!”


Hatsu: always in touch with what the youngsters are word-speaking.


There’s quite a list, guys.


Because that’s totally how wielding works.





Watchability: Watchable, though I wouldn’t recommend it.

Visual grade: B-

Script grade: D-

Overall grade: D-

Jesus Christ, Hatsuyuki. I don’t even know why I keep giving you chances. You’re as incompetent as Hadena was, but you’re not remotely close to being that funny. Hardly anyone downloads your releases, no one reads your site, and your reputation is many multiples of seven feet under the ground.

If all you can manage to do is create subs that are objectively worse than the official options, why the fuck are you still subbing? Quit while you’re behind, cuz I doubt you’ll ever catch up.

  1. Huh, I thought Hatsu did all their kara hardsubbed? There’s no subs in your ED WebM so I assume it’s softsubbed and you didn’t didn’t bother turning subs on when you rendered. Also cut slightly too early, if you’re going to go back and fix it anyway.

  2. Looks like I’m stuck with HS for this one. When I’m archiving I’ll probably replace the script in Hatsuyuki’s release with HS script to keep the typesetting karaoke and chapters.

      • Ok well apparently neither of them use the proper name of the anime so I couldn’t find them on nyaa. Why would you not put the japanese name in your release -.-

          • Not really, Inou Battle is Inou battle for every group for example. Changing Kiseijuu to Parasyte is like OreGairu all over again.

            • Except Parasyte is a popular manga that always went by that name, only natural for people to call it that instead of Kiseijuu, while it barely applies sometimes the English name is more popular.

            • If the show already has a well-known, long-running English name, people tend to use that. See also Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure over “Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken” or whatever.

        • Only Hatsuyuki is using the japanese name, but, for whatever reason, the other groups decided to translate the whole name and keep that “the maxim” shit instead of just using Parasyte, no clue why, that’s such a shitty and pointless name.

    • Commie is releasing this within a very reasonable time frame, properly typeset, encoded, and all. Why would you not go with them?

      And as far as archiving, why not just archive UTW?

  3. That Horriblesubs comparison picture is hilarious. Did they seriously change “Stay in line” to “Stay in the line”? Even Hadena’s English is better than that.
