  1. Finally got comments up in here huh? I guess I’ll request Doki’s Mayo Chiki and WhyNot’s Iksuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi.

  2. It’s so weird… I just looked at this page yesterday and saw that you couldn’t get the comments to work. I even did a google search clicked the first link before I got bored xD Oh well, hooray for more places to comment.

  3. Looking forward to your review of the Oyatsu’s version of “Usagi Drop”. Comparison to Doki would be nice. Thank you.

    • I’m only speculating but HS is probably worse than Doki’s, since it’s HS. The only time HS is good is when groups like Chiki appear.

  4. Hi I’m from MATV fansubs and we’d be delighted if you could review our EP2 (or EP1v2) sub of [email protected] We’re a bunch of mostly-inexperienced fansubbers doing this because we love the games so much, so we’d really appreciate your advice on it.

    Brief history of MATV fansubs
    —————————–
    [email protected] EP1 <— joint with EveTaku; released with lots of errors
    [email protected] EP1v2 <— we got new blood (me, k0sm0s). Fixed EP1v1
    [email protected] EP2 <— worked really hard on this, please look it through!

    Thanks!

  5. Asuka-Sub’s YuruYuri
    I see your review on their Lotte release was very negative, but they seem to be the only one’s other than HorribleSubs that release YuruYuri relatively quickly, and I was wondering if they’re still terrible.

    Reply
    • Not sure if you saw my message in one of the reviews, but their YuruYuri release is terrible and full of intentional trolling. I won’t give them the time of day by reviewing it. Just avoid their release.

      • ZombieYoshi ignore this dumbass’s remarks about Asuka-subs. They are actually doing a VERY good job with it and the only reason why Dark_Sage won’t review them becasue there’s very few things to whine about.

    • I’m literally halfway through with the review. This full-time job showed up at the worst time for this site because I can’t fucking juggle real-life, this blog, AND fansubbing at the same time. So when I get back from home, I contribute to my alcoholism and then stare at the computer screen, debating whether or not to fansub or blog. In the end, I do neither and pass out in a drunken heap on the floor.

      When I wake up, I sometimes see a post I made on the site or somebody thanking me for my “great edit”. Can’t remember doing it, but it’s worked well so far, right?

  6. Travo, the new lead editor for hadena subs here. I understand the first couple of works that were put out by us were uh, less than satisfactory. There recently were some new staff members brought in, mainly in the editing department, and we would love it if you would take a look at the new things we release as well as the stuff we do with our partners in Hatsuyuki. We hope that we can regain confidence in our viewers with these new works. Thanks!

  7. Sorry for the double post. Hadena-hatsuyuki released episodes 1 and 2 of No.6 earlier today and I would really like to hear your opinion on them since I am the editor and it’s my first full release as such. Thanks!

  8. Hatsuyuki’s Dantalian no Shoka Episode 1. For a show that is “oversubbed,” most of the other subs I’ve seen are variations of the same script.

    Reply
    • We’re picking this up again. Would be nice to see a review on the first episode, since I might not be able to edit future episodes.

      Reply
  9. [Monokage] Kamisama no Memo-chou 1-2, please.
    They also have some TL notes on their site, not sure If they’re present in the scripts.

    Reply
    • I’m an editor for Hatsuyuki. Someone else on our team requested it not be reviewed until the first episode was v2’d (which I worked on), but I don’t know what happened with it. I can tell you the v1 scripts aren’t good (aside from the excellent typesetting).

      Reply
  10. Requesting Vyrsalia Uta no Prince Sama~ Or at least WhyNot Uta no Prince Sama. I wanna see the show and NyanTaku don’t convice me at all. But I’m not sure if pick Vyrsalia or WhyNot. Fangirls wanna know the best option (?)

    • All Reinweiss does is change the name order and add honorifics. That’s not going to change anything about my recommendation and it certainly isn’t worth wasting my time or yours with a review. They’re gg’s subs but with honorifics. That’s it.

      I was accused of bias when reviewing Penguin Drum, so I’m obliged to re-review gg and nutbladder’s subs very, very carefully in a re-review. Hopefully that will suffice.

      Reply
      • That Penguin Drum release honestly deserved a shit grade because it was ep1, and it really was a rush job. We’ve already replaced it with a v2 since OP/ED were missing too.

        I just don’t understand how you’re getting these grades, like “[Hatsuyuki-Hadena] No. 6” had elementary shit like random typos and “it’s” for “its” and still “B-tier”???

        Other than “miso group” in gg Penguin (or UTW KamiMemo), none of our mistakes were nearly as severe than any of those errors.

        Reply
        • I really need to revamp my grading system. I agree. It was easier in the first season when I had an idea of what grades I’d given everything else.

          Got any ideas?

          Reply
          • Side-by-side comparison like that Denpa one is the best, but if you don’t have the time, maybe just list the number of errors?

            “Over 15 minor errors, 3 typos, 5 lines don’t make any sense = F”
            “Only 3 minor errors in the entire episode = A-”
            are pretty convincing, and probably gives you a better idea when comparing releases. You’ll need to find errors in a consistent standard though.

            Of course, you should still comment on overall readability and understandability too, because there are subs that are grammatically correct, but poor nuance, poor consistency etc.

            Reply
  11. You should review Sentai/Horrible Subs KamiMemo instead of Tokimeki. Tokimeki pretty much stalled, and no one’s probably going to watch theirs anyway even if they continue.

    The prosubs, on the other hand, was a bit too liberal, but ep1 still maintained nearly 100% accuracy (they must have the original JP script). Kinda curious if their editing went as well… I spotted one type though, lol.

    • … fine. But I don’t want to hear any “OMG you just rated them poorly cuz your group is doing Dantalian too!” if it sucks.

      Reply
      • I appreciate it. I’ll be out of fansubbing pretty soon anyway, but I’d like a critical opinion on one of the scripts I had the most control over.

        Reply
          • Partially. Episode 1 is the one I edited myself, episode 2 was just worked on based on whoever was free at the moment. I don’t expect it to be quite as good as episode 1, but I stopped caring about this show when I realized it sucked.

  12. Wasn’t Woodbridge going to be doing Usagi Drop? Where in the name of Merlin’s panties are they? Also behind on AoExo….o_O

    Reply
    • Woodbridge is not doing Usagi Drop.

      Ao Ex is late, true. There are a number of reasons for this, but to my knowledge the group hasn’t died yet. Only 10 more eps to go.

      Reply
  13. Can you take a look at Zenyaku’s R-15? We started late in the season so we haven’t finished the earlier episodes yet. Episode 5 will be a good place to start when we release it later today.

  14. Hey dark I was wondering if you could tell me which of these fansubs is better for Karigurashi no Arrietty by just looking at the fansub names for now.
    REVO
    THORA
    Coalgirls
    DECAY
    thanks

    • No clue.

      Flip a coin. It’s not like those blu-ray groups have any competitive advantage over one another. They’re all the same shit with the same scripts and the same encodes (queue fuckwit encoders whining about how their version is one degree sharper than the others’ in 3…2…)

      Get whichever is seeded best, I guess.

  15. Add Break Blade movies review, please… This anime just finished all its episodes not too long ago. Though the only fansub subbing this show is GG. I pretty much want to know your opinion on GG subtitle. Thanks.

    Reply
    • I know Break Blade GG release files size is pretty big so it’s fine if the review is only for one episode (that has smaller size like episode 5 or 6).

  16. Can you review this release for Twin Angel, a new group took over for the dead Chiki subs, apparently its a lone person just finishing up the series since no other group is working on it, they have released episode 6 and 7 so far, I think this person is planning to finish the series since no other group is doing it according to the message on release 7,http://www.nyaa.eu/?page=torrentinfo&tid=235531

  17. I guess you guys only do anime fan sub reviews but I was hoping you could do some live action stuff

    a group called Over-Time is terrible.

    they take liberties with translations and just are dumb.

    you could also check out Tv-Nihon who under translates, leaving japanese words in because they think it’s cool.

    If not. let me do it :)

  18. Both Commie and Zenyaku have gotten out the first anime of the fall season: Busou Shinki Moon Angel. Please review those. Thanks.
