is there a ranking for subgroups? or does it alternate too frequently to mean anything
FFFansubs are usually the best.
Yes. HS > >Shit > Not watching at all > Everything else.
You really have to decide the best group on a series-by-series basis.
The problem is rather that the good subgroups don't actually sub that many shows.
Just download HS can't go wrong with that.
HS is a CR automated rip, so it suffers from the same as CR: nonexistent typesetting and, while professional, not necesseraly interested translators. Grab it only if it's there's no fansub of the series.
The rest doesn't really matter, it comes down to preference.
You'd better make a ranking of translators instead.
They get used across multiple groups like the bitches they are.
I go with whatever Nyaa gives an A+ ranking to for the series.
Your meme arrows are going the wrong way, pal.
UTW > FFF > HS > Rest
Do subgroups ever release the handles of which translators are working on each series?
FFF used to be good but they became worse than commie last summer.
UTW > *

The translators and editors usually run their own blogs.
