I am more than willing to marry red and blue at the same time. I would bro it up with Mitsuka all day and at night I'll get him to transform and have a threesome with her and Tsube. If they want, Mitsuka can stay a dude and we can have a threesome like that every other night. Yellow can come and watch if she likes.
Also, since we're all married, it would be OK for our dicks to rub together in Tsubes's little hole.

No, you don't understand. I can't read or speak Jap, I can't work whatever subtitle programs are used for this, I can't encode; I can't do anything needed to make a fansub, but my autism latched onto this, so I'm stuck doing this. I'd love to be able to say "yes, I was the one who made these subs. I have the skills necessary to influence my own consumption of my primary hobby, and potentially influence others' consumption of their primary hobbies", but I can't. I really should get around to learning this stuff instead of wasting my time on autism like this.

I actually wish most fansub groups would die for this reason. Having only one sub you're forced to watch is infinitely superior to having 10 because there's no shitposting, shilling and butthurt about it.

Gonna blow your mind here. No matter whose subs you watch, you're still watching the SAME FUCKING SHOW.

So how about we discuss the show and stop giving a shit about how other people choose to experience it? Will your autism allow that? If not, could you take a break from the internet and stop ruining discussion for the rest of us? Nobody gives the slightest of shits who you watch.

Funi and all its edits are actually slightly incorrect there because the line should be in present perfect tense, not simple past. It needs a "has" before "had" because the sentence is describing her current state.

Bad grammar pisses me off, so I guess that means [P] is trollsubs.
>>
>>115312251
Inserting idioms, expressions, and figures of speech whenever possible isn't localizing, it's trollsubbing. Why did Commie use "Madonna with twintails" and "Smells like teen spirit" instead of actually translating the lines? Why did Commie use "Freudian slip in writing" (which doesn't make sense or sound right in any context) at all? I've never been able to understand Commie's style of subbing. Things like "cis male scum" in Servant x Service or "Implying I would hide her" and cat puns in Log Horizon just don't make sense to insert.

Looks good enough for me to take a shit on it.
>>
>>115312471
Yes I do, but "Freudian slip in writing" specifically is not the same thing as "Freudian slip". It's an extremely awkward and forced phrase.

>>115312531
I'm not trying to assert my opinion on others, I want an explanation. I genuinely do not understand Commie's motivation for making fansubs in their style. I know that they put out a lot of high-quality releases as far as encoding, font, typesetting, and other measures of visual quality, but I can't get past this idea of intentionally replacing translations with these cutesy phrases. If I could understand, maybe I could appreciate and use Commie's subs, which would be beneficial to me, because fansubbing is dying and Commie is the only group large enough to keep churning out the number of releases they do.

>>115312501
But who is their target audience then?
>>
>Commie
Literally never.

I'll stick to unedited Funi, Doki, and [P]. Comparing and combining all three to get the best out of whatever nuances were missed or added will get me what I want.

If /a/ is autism central, then how can anyone here use their subs? Even then, it seems that their style significantly decreases how understandable their subs are, so ass drill or not, it doesn't make sense to me to use them.

>>115312979
Maybe I was exaggerating a bit, but Commie's overly gratuitous use of them makes their subs shit, plain and simple. Unless I'm missing the point of what you're saying, in which case, please explain.

It's only something a man would say (or a very masculine woman), and is more or less another way of saying what he said afterwards.

>Well, I just feel that fnord's fears were unfounded, because when I actually watched the episode, there were only like 1-2 lines that I might have possibly asked to be "toned down". But it's not really that big of a deal, less management for me and the subs are more than watchable enough for me as-is. And I did the dialogue style for it, which guaranteed that I wouldn't have to look at Commie Sans.

The subs are honestly pretty tame, I'd have expected a lot more trollish script considering the situation.

Adding a layer of abstraction from basic 'what is being said' by using an idiom in the first place, then adding another layer of abstraction by forcing the idiom into a situation it wasn't meant to be makes it two layers of abstraction away from "normal subs".

A typo is only one layer of abstraction from "normal subs".

What were the 1-2 lines?
Why would you not want to change other lines like "teen spirit" and "madonna"?
Why would "expecting a more trollish script" be a free pass for a less trollish script? Shouldn't a not trollish at all script be the goal?
>>
>>115313250
You have a strange idea of "normal subs" to begin with. English is my native language and I have no trouble processing idioms, even idioms in unusual situations, regardless of how many "layers of abstraction" away they are.
>>
>>115313250
So how many layers of abstraction does it take to interpret a line like "Simply the most powerful armor that can go up against those monsters." as its actual meaning, "armor powerful enough to go up against those monsters"
>>
>>115313242
>you don't like "funsubs".

"Don't like" would be calling it too strongly. I generally speaking don't give a fuck if a line or two is overdone as long as it delivers well enough on the meaning and the overall script quality is good, which is very much the case with Commie's Twintail script, and the first episode wasn't even very overdone compared to some other shit that has come out of Commie.

Of course, just because I don't particularly mind them doesn't mean that I wouldn't prefer my releases without them, but still, you guys in general tend to overreact to this kind of shit way too much, especially when the talk is about comedy shows. But then again, there are people who actually pick releases based on whether they have honorifics or not, so obviously a good amount of people have priorities that are completely out of whack.
>>
>>115313279
"Smells like teen spirit" can be a perfectly fitting translation. I don't have a problem with using it in situations like that, and I think objecting to its mere existence in a script is just silly.

The "Madonna" line was something I was questioning, but apparently the original line references "Dancing Queen" by ABBA and fnord couldn't figure out how to work that nicely into the translation so he used Madonna as a reference instead, and that's ok in my books - definitely better than missing the reference altogether.

>Why would "expecting a more trollish script" be a free pass for a less trollish script? Shouldn't a not trollish at all script be the goal?

Preferably, yes, but minor overdoing in an otherwise solid script can be easily forgiven and is much preferable over much overall weaker scripts with no overdone lines.
>>
>>115313239
Shouldn't you be off to being a Madonna for Fukku? If you catch my drift.
>>
>>115313250
"She said anything goes, so I'll bet you want to ask for her twintails, right?"

one layer of abstraction: figuring out that the subber accidentally (?) swapped "for" and "her", leading to a grammatically correct line that says entirely the wrong thing

second layer of abstraction: figuring out that "ask her for twintails" means "ask her to wear twintails"

I think an idiom would be far less distracting.

Actually nevermind that, I was misunderstanding what fnord said about that bit. And considering that, the line could definitely do with a makeover. Still not a very big issue in the bigger picture though.

>>115313287
It's also related to suspension of disbelief and immersion in addition to understanding. Any sort of "fun" lines take me out of the situation of reading translations of what is being said. It's like how when one is reading a book, at some point, it becomes less of reading the words and converting them into a mental image of what is going on, and more of the mental image playing out in one's mind while the eyes scan the page. Using "fun" subs brings more attention to the words themselves.

>>115313332
Zero. The line beginning with "simply" conveys the idea that the Tail Gear is the most powerful armor, superlative. The line beginning with "armor powerful" conveys the idea that the Tail Gear is only just powerful enough i.e. only a little bit more powerful than the monsters. Because it is in response to a question, starting the sentence with "simply" and then saying the noun phrase works.

>>115313356
>don't give a fuck
As opposed to "don't care"?

>>115313422
I've never actually heard "smells like teen spirit" used in conversation or as an idiom before this. The phrase is almost entirely alien to me besides the obvious connection to nirvana.

Is that line actually referencing "Dancing Queen" for sure? It sounds highly probable that it would just be related to the general rich girl princess archetype thing that anime sometimes have, and not a reference to the song. Now, I don't know Japanese, so I can't confirm this, but that's why I'm asking questions to get more information.

Why should anything be forgiven when a quick pass over to remove troublesome lines is possible?

>>115313429
Maybe the way I process words is different from you, because I didn't even notice that the words "for" and "her" were switched. I automatically put them in the right order, sort of like the "cna yuo raed tihs" things.

"Ask her for twintails" seems like a direct question of equal standing to "ask her to wear twintails". I'm not sure what you're getting at there.
>>
>>115313600
Adding to this, processing idioms to their intended meaning is slower than mentally fixing typos or the like, at least for me.
>>
>>115313572
>Still not a very big issue in the bigger picture though.
What I was getting at with the first part of >>115313600 is that those little moments where the flow is lost due to having to process an idiom into its intended meaning impacts the big picture more than some instances of awkward wording.
>>
>>115313600
>Is that line actually referencing "Dancing Queen" for sure?

No, as I already said in >>115313572, I was misunderstanding what fnord was saying about that particular line, and looking at it now it was indeed rather poorly handed (and fnord & Xythar pretty much agree) and would have been better off done differently.

>Why should anything be forgiven when a quick pass over to remove troublesome lines is possible?

You're essentially saying that it doesn't matter if a script is 99% completely solid and you have no problems with it, if even 1% is something you don't like, then it's SHIT FOREVER. This kind of thinking is completely idiotic and unfortunately prevalent among the anime watching populace. Please don't fall into the same trap.
>>
>>115313600
I'm gonna make a personal appeal to you, [P] fan.

Your choice in subs isn't for me, but I don't begrudge you it. Everyone is different, and different people enjoy different things. Once man's trash is another man's treasure, and so on.

However, presenting your favorite option as the only choice and repeatedly posting over and over again trying to "prove it" suggests that you think you know what's better for everyone else. That's not being helpful and it's not doing a good deed - it's just being arrogant.

Watch the subs you like and let other people make their own decision as to which they prefer. When the next thread shows up, I want to see it about the show and not full of shitposting and fighting over fansubs. Even though we might be watching different subs, we're all watching the same show.

I hope you'll consider my polite request.

>>115313649
>Adding to this, processing idioms to their intended meaning is slower than mentally fixing typos or the like, at least for me.

I assume you're not a native English speaker, in which case all I can really say is that you simply get better at English. Arguing against the use of English idioms in an English script because you're not all that good at English is rather silly, as you will hopefully agree.

>>115313688
It isn't about black balling the quality of the subs, it's more about how each little "commieism" (like "eotens", putting a penis in the Cross Ange OP, lines like "die cis scum") tries to be "fun" in its own right as the subs, as opposed to the entertainment coming from the show itself, and how each little commieism acts as another straw on the camel's back. Especially after being this autistic about subs even just once, I've sort of accidentally trained myself to recognize moments like this (not that they're hard to miss) and add more weight to them. Overall quality is the most important factor in a fansub, but it can very easily be interrupted by glaring issues.

>>115313726
I am a native English speaker. Maybe it's more of a personal issue with how my brain processes different ways of presenting the same information or some other neuro-whatever bullshit, but the argument can still stand. It makes more sense to localize Japanese idioms as English idioms than it does to change non-idiom Japanese speech to English idioms, at least to me.

>>115313711
Okay. I'll oblige. But I would like to hear what you'd say about the other thousands of people on /a/ who have ever typed >commie. Are people just supposed to give up trying to get others to watch the same thing they're watching through the same lens of the same fansubs, like has been done ever since there have been multiple subgroups working on the same show? I'm tempted to say "where do you think we are", but then I think that you're more referring to incessantly saying the same fansub bullshit constantly in every thread instead of opportunistically discussing it, correct?

Yes. I've been here for years and one thing I've learned is that people will never, ever be able to agree on which fansubs to watch. There are simply too many things to disagree about.

In a show like this, I'm pretty confident that anyone can understand the story regardless of which subs they use, so let's focus on the show instead of arguing in circles about the subs.

But it's not as if you need 100% of votes to win an election, just 50% plus one. If there were a point to all this fansub bickering, it'd be the same as any pointless competition where there are multiple arbitrary sides that everyone chooses or gets placed in. "I want my group to win" regardless of the fact that it doesn't matter whatsoever, or get you anything. Now, campaigning like I did was wrong, but you're making it sound like there's no point in discussing it, which there is. People watching the same anime under two different subs are watching different shows, like a different acting company performing the same play. Hell, even how to spell names makes it obvious who's using which subs.

If you want proof, check out the "Tailgear-related vocabulary" section (テイルギア関連用語) on the Japanese wiki article for Ore, Twintail. Or if that's not useful then put the first paragraph
>テイルブレスから生成されるテイルギア。通常はブレスレットの形態で腕に装着されているが、他者に認識されない。変身の掛け声(変身機構起動略語・スタートアップワード)は「テイルオン!」。なお、口にしなくても変身可能である。

> “Come to think of it, Twoearle, isn’t there anyone else who can use the Tailgear?”
> “I cannot mass-produce them, but... there is just one more. And I have found someone who is qualified to use it already.”

So, although the original just says 「量産はできませんが・・・あと一つだけあります」, maybe the translation should be "just one more bracelet?"
