Much like Freddie Mercury, Netflix’s release sucks AIDS-infested dick.

[Die Hot] is just a pop-up brand created for this film, staffed by leftovers who for some reason want to remain anonymous. No fucking idea why, but nu-gen isn’t exactly known for their skillful plays.
Visuals – Typesetting / Karaoke
Script – Die Hot
I can theoretically appreciate the commitment to the joke, but in this case, familiarity breeds contempt. You can’t even watch the releases in order this way.
Although the Die Hot naming scheme pissed me off, I can’t say these subs are bad. Perfect, though? That’s a reach.

TFW no ambiguously brown gf.
Script – Die Hot vs. Netflix
It’s not a clean sweep for Die Hot in the head-to-head, but Netflix’s failures are definitely more pronounced.
After this review was 95% completed, I decided to plow through the rest of what was available, so I could speak to how good the show itself was.
With 14 episodes under my belt, I must regretfully report that it is entirely mediocre. But in the process, I may have snagged pic or two from the Die Hot releases.
Whew, forgot how much fun blogging can be. Any suggestions for what to go for next?
A [Hadena] retrospective could make for a good Halloween special, but I want my reviews to have the possibility of helping people wade through multiple choices. So if y’all could be a little more targeted than “bad oldsubs” that’d be sugoi.
