If best subs don't come out until days after airing do you use HS or resist the urge and wait?
Get HS and then get the best release for archive until the BD rips come out.
Depends if HS release is good for that particular show. The quality varies greatly.
Depends on the show, and the quality of the different subs. And for some shows I watch the live stream first, which can make me wait a bit longer before watching it again with subs.
What is HS?
I use whatever comes out quickest, I wish I had patience. It would be a beautiful thing.
Depends what series, and how bad HS is. For series I enjoy, I'd rather wait, otherwise I'll go for the fastest, non-shit subs. Though this time, Funi subs are typically shit, especially for Nourin, so I'd rather wait a week+ for m33w to sub it.
Why did FFF pick up like half the shows airing this season. Their releases are generally better than HS but the delays are getting fucking atrocious.
I use HS for most shows unless something is quicker.
If HS is funishit I wait no matter what
I'm more pissed that UTW scammed $4000 yet sub one show a season, let alone their backlog.
FFF are now the fansub mafia
I've made this point as well. Even Chuu2 is a joint with FFF and it still takes 40 years for each release.
Buying gaming PCs don't make you sub faster
I believe he is implying the group spent all the money on games
Raze bought a new a gaming rig to play gaymes instead of subbing my cartoons.
Half of this shit this season is Funisubs.
Generally I can stomach it, barely.. Somehow. But I can't do that for D-frag that just came out.
That wasn't a failsub. It made my day.
It's really not that hard to wait for a day or so to get decent subs, just think of it like this, say your show has a HS release on Saturday, then just tell yourself that your release will be Sunday or Monday.
The real problem is when you don't know if the show you want will ever have good subs
Based Vivid will deliver.
Despite all the shit commie does, I like how they deal with subs like that.
The effort that effect took they could have actually bothered with a QC on their work.
HS is basically a last resort. They're covering just about everything, but their subs are the bare minimum and pretty shit, with crunchy forgetting to even sub lines every now and again, or not understanding how to spell properly.
Usually yes. The wait isn't that long most of the time, so it's not an issue. And then there are cases like Nourin, where I don't mind waiting for something better than that godawful funi rip.
>donating to fansub groups
>getting mad at fansub groups for not picking up a lot off shows
I'm not sure which of these are the most retarded.
This. Funi has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
I only watch HS. I resist the urge to use fansubs. I almost considered using Underwater for an episode of KlK. But I had patients and proper subs came, and everything was good.
I depends mainly on whether or nor I want to discuss the show the day of and not later in the week.
That was fucking great and began the era of creative typesetting. I'm proud of myself for spreading the word and praising them back then.
Did you download a HS episode just to make that post then?
Wait for group every time unless no one good picks it up. I just have RSS feeds set up so it just downloads whenever its out and I can watch it when I have time.
m33w isn't really better. Chihiro is barely watchable so it's by far the best option.
I don't see a point in complaining about 'better' or 'worse' subs, nor do I see a point in seeking one group over another. There are no good or bad subs, there are just subs. Either watch something raw or don't complain, you're getting free entertainment in subtitles you can understand.
Cultural subtleties are untranslatable and either you've watched so much fucking anime you understand them already or no subs on Earth will do the show justice.
So watch whatever the hell you can get and never ever complain again you ungrateful bastards
>There are no good or bad subs
>Either watch something raw or don't complain, you're getting free entertainment in subtitles you can understand.
>waiting for HorribleSubs when better alternatives come out faster
What sort of brain defect are you suffering from?
I think it was one of those reverse troll posts.
>Decent subs: Sorry
>Funi: My bad dude!!!!
>There is no much thing as good or bad subs
Did someone mention commie or irc? This is some horrible shitposting.
It wasn't I assure you.
UTW got $4000 because their fans were literally begging to allow them to throw money their way. If anything, I'd just consider it compensation for however much money they probably spent on distro in the past.
I go out of my way to download HS since they are consistently decent. I avoid underwater commie and GG because they are consistently shit.
>Funi subs are typically shit
This. Unless there's a lot of complicated typesetting, CR is usually acceptable though low-quality.
With the shows being streamed through Funi, it's lower visual quality and horrible translations.
Worth waiting for something better
I always get HS regardless, I only use fansubs when they release before HS.
>I go out of my way to download HS since they are consistently decent.
>People actually use HS
I ONLY ever use HS if it's the only option.
I like muh fancy typesetting, OP/ED translations and video quality. I'm fine with waiting a little longer.
Underwater>FFF>Vivid>Anime-Koi=UTW>gg>Commie>Other Small groups>Shit>HorribleSubs
Well, translation-wise HS is basically the same as UTW or other Commies (sometimes slightly better, sometimes slightly worse, sometimes different style, sometimes the fucking same) so for people who don't care too much about pretty stuff and focus only on the script, HS is perfectly viable option.
Seems like a good place to ask this.
I downloaded Coalgirls' Bakemonogatari, Nisemonogatari and Nekomonogatari and just can't wait for their release of Monogatari Second Season. The question is HS or Commie for Monogatari Second Season?
Use ANE for Bake, CoalGirls for Nise (until UTW finishes it), Commie for Neko, and Commie for Second Season.
And Coalgirls isn't going to do S2.
Good to see there are still sane anons. Thanks for replying to him seriously, I actually forgot about ANE.
