~Summer 2014 Edition~

Things to remember:

  • Review order is determined by the poll… usually. I make no promises, as I’m not good at keeping them.
  • If a show has already been reviewed, you won’t find it in this queue. Try the Review Summary.
  • I do not review first episodes. There are translation parties for that.
  • Translation parties are only considered when there are more than 3 distinct releases for a show.

  1. New TL Party policy: I’m only going to include the first four releases for a series in each party. Reason being:
    A. Five-group releases are lengthy to the point I couldn’t reasonably expect y’all to complete multiples of them.
    B. It gives me a definitive date for when I can post the party. This means I don’t have to wait for releases that may or may not ever come.

    Course, if you think that’s a bad policy, I’m all ears to your suggestions. But the IRCs seem to be fine with it, so we’re going with this for now.

  2. To cut down on the backlog, another TL Party update (two, actually):

    1. Any releases outside of a one-week turnaround won’t be considered for TL Party inclusion.

    2. For shows with three options, if one is an official release and two are just official release edits, then I won’t do a Party for that series. For shows with four options, even if there are three edits and an official release, they’ll still qualify for a Party.

    As always, Parties are of lower priority to me than my normal reviews. So don’t be surprised if I don’t get to too many of them.

  3. Hey DS, Chihiro released Sailor Moon a few days ago and I saw it not on the list – probably since it was a pretty low key release. Don’t know if this was because it took a few days or what. And since you’re my only hope for an unbiased review, thought I’d mention it.

      • A handy guide to Dark_Sage’s bias:

        “Was my release A-tier?” -> D_S unbiased
        “Was my release anything but A-tier?” -> D_S so biased

            • Oh right, I misspoke. DS is very very biased. He’s biased against every group and professional.

              No, as much as I’ve complained about some of the ratings as being too harsh, they are at least fair. Chihiro has gotten an A and/or a recommendation above more popular groups in instances like To Aru Railgun and Kamisama no Memo-chou, and has been utterly trashed in stuff like Ketsuekigata-kun! and Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko.
              On the other end of the spectrum, the cartel side, you have stuff like FFF getting an A from Noragami, and D-tier on Kyoukai no Kanata.

              Compared to a site like bakabt that automatically approves stuff made by its members with no association with fansubbing, or nyaa that A+’s cartel releases while pretending to do a review, this site is much more reliable in terms of bias.

  4. Hi D_S. orz is taking a crack at a CR edit/re-encode of Persona 4 The Golden Animation. Just thought I’d mention it in case you find time to take a look at it, cheers

    • Did you guys actually edit it? The way you phrased it on Nyaa made me think the only changes you made were to the naming order.

      • Yeah, it’s edited. The CR script was pretty good but I think I was able to find room for improvement. I probably could’ve been a little clearer about that but already felt like I was blogging too much.

  5. just FYI dont bother about horrible tokyo ghoul. They screwed up encoding which made the colour bloat/saturate (not sure about the right term) a lot.

  6. Tonight I’ll be doing disqualifications. First up, Commie’s SAO II.

    Wonder how many more releases I’ll be able to take off my list. Anyone care to place bets?
