Fansub Review: [Anime-Koi] Gugure! Kokkuri-san (Episode 04)

This post was written by Dark_Sage. He is Dark_Sage.


I had planned to watch a bit of anime and go to sleep early tonight, but it turns out that’s kinda hard to do when you’re bleeding from your fucking eyes.

Anime-Koi sucks

In retrospect, I should have checked their site before setting my expectations for this release. Even the Berlin Wall didn’t have this much writing on it.

Opening. It exists.

Rating: Meh.

Ending. I’m not sure what hurts more: the English or the font. …Okay, it’s the English, but the kara sucks too.

Rating: Bad.




Look at the bottom of this screen.

Yeah, it about sums up Anime-Koi’s typesetting effort on this show. Have some more if you get off to inadequacy:

There were a ton of signs they didn’t typeset, but considering how awful these ones were, I’m gonna avoid poking the retarded bear, and hope they slowly stop typesetting the show altogether.

I’ll save you yet, Kohina!





Script Review


[Anime-Koi] Gugure! Kokkuri-san - 04 [h264-720p][DECBCBB2].mkv_snapshot_01.29_[2014.11.19_21.44.06] [Anime-Koi] Gugure! Kokkuri-san - 04 [h264-720p][DECBCBB2].mkv_snapshot_22.56_[2014.11.19_22.18.22]

You’d be better off watching the OP/ED with the karaoke turned off.



Main Script.

The awkward dialogue kills the comedy, but the bounty of (presumably) unintentional errors manages to resurrect some of it.

Of course, it comes back a bit… changed.

[Anime-Koi] Gugure! Kokkuri-san - 04 [h264-720p][DECBCBB2].mkv_snapshot_00.13_[2014.11.19_21.40.50]

Get Benedict off your mind; he isn’t even a good actor.

cumbersome -> troublesome

[Anime-Koi] Gugure! Kokkuri-san - 04 [h264-720p][DECBCBB2].mkv_snapshot_02.16_[2014.11.19_21.45.23]

I’m going to assume they meant “morphling” here. Not that it would make the line any better.

[Anime-Koi] Gugure! Kokkuri-san - 04 [h264-720p][DECBCBB2].mkv_snapshot_02.46_[2014.11.19_21.46.07]

Is a slum shack just a love shack for bums? I don’t think I like where you’re taking this, Anime-Koi.

[Anime-Koi] Gugure! Kokkuri-san - 04 [h264-720p][DECBCBB2].mkv_snapshot_03.21_[2014.11.19_21.47.01]

Waps, I know you won’t be convinced by the piles of aborted English, but perhaps this line will give you cause to stay away from Anime-Koi’s release.

The syntax holocaust in this release would make even the Khmer Rouge jealous.

This is probably the closest Anime-Koi got to forming a complete thought in this episode. If it makes sense to you, you may need medication too.

An extra period here, an extra chromosome there…

I’ve never wanted anything less in my life.

It’s an orphanage, you shitwits.

“Bullying is uncool”, huh? Sounds like a nationwide PSA campaign in the making.

I imagine clubs and spades would. Let’s find out.

Here, have a period: . I know these things can be easy to forget when your mother forgot not to drink whiskey while pregnant. Damn shame she didn’t drink nail remover instead.

Yeah, I think that’s an adequate depiction of my despair. Thanks, Japan.

Sometimes genetic diversity can be too diverse.

I wish I could shed a tear for what Anime-Koi did to English in their subs, but I fear I’ve been completely desensitized to the abuse.

Your social experiment worked, A-Koi. I no longer feel emotion. Love is truly over.

[Anime-Koi] Gugure! Kokkuri-san - 04 [h264-720p][DECBCBB2].mkv_snapshot_18.20_[2014.11.19_22.12.42]

If this release was a book, I would burn it. Twice.

I didn’t look too far into the HorribleSubs release, but I can tell you for sure that it’s not this bad. Skip these subs like the editor’s father skipped out on him.

  1. Apparently this is one of their TLer’s favourite shows. I guess their editor and QC don’t feel the same way. Edit: looks like that’s already in the review. Oops.

    And why the fuck do A-K’s releases vary in quality THAT much? Chaika and Ai Tenchi seemed fine, and then I watched this. What’s going on? Is Kokkuri like a place they use for punishment?

    • Back when the Persona Movie aired, we decided to try the same editor to do the edits but ended up tossing the edits because he made errors everywhere. It seems they decided to pick him up despite a few people saying not to. Well, that’s what happens when you’re desperate… I guess. Can’t vouch for their QCs since I’m not in the group anymore and haven’t watched a single show from them since the summer.

      • God fucking damn it. I was beginning to like A-K cos it seemed like they were getting their act together. Even one or two minor mistakes I probably wouldn’t mind.

        But this is a Funi-level trash. Did NO ONE look at this and say “hey hold up guys, there’s a few issues?” I know they have some decent staff, so where the fuck are they?

        A-K, you’re one of the few subbing groups left. Get your shit together.

  2. On a more positive note, damn D_S keep the reviews coming. Do you have something good lined up? I could really use one after all of these.

  3. I really shouldn’t read these right after I wake up, I didn’t spot half of the mistakes at first and thought you just didn’t like the lines.

  4. So much editing fail. And the Steve Irwin joke is inexcusable.

    “Damn shame she didn’t drink nail remover instead.”

    Nail remover. Ouch. >.<
