I've never watched Hidamari Sketch, so I'm starting tonight. One question, though. Which subs should I use? I'm looking around and generally only hearing bad things about every single one I've found.
Pick Nutbladder and you'll get quality such as pic related.
Subs are really fucking important when it comes to a comedy series. Especially when there are a lot of fansubs that think it's their job to add jokes to the show (i.e. Nutbladder).
If you lurked moar you'd know the answer to your question. Don't take any responses in this thread seriously, because you're getting the kind of responses people who clearly don't lurk enough get here.
I figure you at least know the name origin. With that sort of mindset it also reflects in their subs. I've watched their subs in the past for a series and the mistranslations stopped me. It wasn't even trying to add retarded shit that annoyed me, they were just retarded.
IIRC mistranslation of a type of fish, lyrics oddities, noticeable guess work, etc. I kind of wonder why people keep bothering to mention them despite how their releases seem to be disliked.
Anons, please. Asking /a/ what the best subs are is a perfectly legitimate question. It's not spoonfeeding if you give suggestions.
Yes you can use google, yes you can try to speculate based on what you know about the available fansub groups, but the fact of the matter is that there will always be anomalies where, for example, CR has the best subs even though other options are available, or Commie's subs are actually great compared to what they usually do, etc.
OP, my suggestion is that you wait for an actual Hidamari thread, and ask there. Then people will most likely be glad to help you. Starting a thread with any kind of question is going to make a bunch of /a/nons get mad at you even if there's no reason for it.
My own recommendation would be FuktLogic, but I'm not a huge fan of the series so I'm not comfortable speaking with authority on the matter.
Oh how I wish that it is still the case.
Fuck, shes probably going to like spill rice and shrimp and shit errywhere. Why not just fill the bowl normally and then go back for seconds? Yunos tiny, its not like shes going to be eating more than 1 helping.
Again, recommending good subs is not spoonfeeding. There's no way to know what subs are good unless you've seen the series. It is a perfectly legitimate thing to ask.
It's just full of shitposters, and it's very obvious who's shitposting in a thread about an old series.
Whenever a Hidamari thread hits 100+ posts you can be sure that the majority is going to be waifu/yurifaggotry or blogging. And the blogging I can tolerate in moderation.
Don't do it at all if you can't do it with tact and subtlety.
Hiro isn't fat, she's just well-endowed.
They have that similar nurturing, maternal air.
You're right about that. Since Ume-sensei designed characters from both series it wouldn't be a surprise to see some overlap in characterization.
Actually, Ume-tentei stated that she based Madoka's design off of Yuno.
>There's no way to know what subs are good unless you've seen the series. It is a perfectly legitimate thing to ask.
Actually there are. There are a ton of resources specifically for this situation. Not knowing that group X does shit subs is one of those reasons why you and all newfags need to lurk forever.
>There are a ton of resources specifically for this situation
Yeah, like asking /a/. Everyone who's not a /b/ reject just gives their opinion and moves on. A thread for discussing different subs surely doesn't make too much of a dent in the catalog's wall of "EVERYDAY UNTIL X" and "I WANT TO FUCK HER SO HARD" threads.
I'm not surprised at all.
I agree. It's a shame that she's not currently designing characters for shows.
But how are you supposed to know that that individual series subs are the best unless you've gone through and it watched it multiple times with every different sub imaginable?
Yea, a certain group may suck most of the time. But that doesn't make it impossible that it's the best available release for that series. But if they follow the same ignorant line of thinking like you, which are they supposed to choose?
I also hope you realize anyone who isn't mentally a child and actually has a respectable opinion to share with others doesn't use the term "newfag" seriously or ever.
That's literally the same as the morons on /b/ who used to shout "back to 9gag!".
My only fear is that her character designs are too unique and noticeable. Like, multiple series all looking like Madoka and Hidamari might start to look "samey" if she didn't vary it up.
>But how are you supposed to know that that individual series subs are the best
There are these things call websites where people can go an vote/recommend specific groups for specific series. Fucking lurk more.
>I also hope you realize anyone who isn't mentally a child and actually has a respectable opinion to share with others doesn't use the term "newfag" seriously or ever.
>That's literally the same as the morons on /b/ who used to shout "back to 9gag!".
Wrong. Not knowing where to find the shit you are looking for especially when there are huge number of resources dedicated to this is a huge indicator of how ignorant you are of board culture. Its no different then asking where you can download series X.
So fuck off, and lurk forever.
I feel that only the art style would be similar.
Ume-sensei is also a pretty good writer. She'd have no problem creating diverse characters, as shown in her other works like Tetsunagi Kooni and Mado no Mukougawa.
Nutbladder never QC's their subs, so you can expect a lot of spelling and grammar errors.
