Is fansubbing finally dead?
>>
What's this fansubbing you oldfags keep talking about? Does it have something to do with the elusive "Moot"?
>>
Who cares, there's fanripping.
>>
Official translations are always better because they are professionals who are paid to do it instead of a neet who translates for fun and thinks he learned jap through watching a bunch of animu.

Everything I said above are objective facts.

I was wondering today if all those attention whores would come back if CR and Funi just died one day.

Boy, i sure do miss all the memes and drama.

Half of them are working for CR and funi. They never left us. They're just taking money now.

>mori wont be subbing dagashi anymore
fuck everything
>>
I only miss stylised subs and translations for OPs/EDs. Other than that it was all going to shit with localisation and other bullshit anyway.
>>
I don't need it anymore, ever since I became a neet, who thinks he learned jap through watching a bunch of animu. It's more than enough to grab a HS script, slap it onto a raw and rely on my ears whenever the "professionals" make a habitual slip. Sometimes the HS rips are even indistinguishable from raws in terms of the video, so it becomes even easier.
>>
Why do people hate funi and crunchy so much?
>>
>>136256023
Because they don't like paying for stuff.

Yeah, everything I've even downaloded this season has been hobbie rips.

Pretty much this. People despise CR and Funi but in the end the translations are close enough that it doesn't matter

Funi is shit. CR has some shit translators too.

>>136255653

someone link to that really bad Otaking documentary complaining about fansubs again where he thinks everything should be subbed with completely literal translations in 0.5 font to avoid distracting the viewer

>>136256023
I don't have issues with CR, but funi encodes look like literal shit and their hardcoded font looks like a nigger.

Don't respond to any post that ends with that objective facts line. It's a troll.

It's been officially dead for like 2 years. And we've been having these threads for decades.

Not true in the slightest.
>>
>>136255678
>>136255901
I'm still on the fence about it because on one hand it'll free up 6+ hours out of my day every Friday and we don't need 3 simulcasts + 4 fansub groups all gangbanging a single show, but on the other hand I'm genuinely having a lot of fun translating Dagashi Kashi each week, livestreaming the whole process and talking shit with everyone in the chat.

I'd rather spend my time translating something that doesn't have any English translations at all, though. I mean, that was the entire reason I created [Mori] and started fansubbing.
>>
>>136256023
>>
>>136256513
Drop it. Put your talents to use elsewhere. Maybe pre-sub a few spring shows to get a head-start on the others. You'd get mad epeen out of that.
>>
Killing fansubbing is a part of the master plan. Once the last group drops dead, streaming services will go after rippers, either by suing them or implementing hardware DRM that utilizes technologies like TPM, Intel SGX and Protected Video Path that ship with most modern computers.

>>136256513
Please continue, we love you and your translation, it has to be you!

>implying the japs even care
The money that the Japanese get from licensing their stuff to the west is chump-change compared to the profits they make from domestic sales. And it's not because they're being taken advantage of, it's because they don't give a shit. They never have. Both creators and audiences have mostly never really cared what the rest of the world thinks of their cartoons, anime is made by the Japanese for the Japanese.

All of this is secondary to the fact that you didn't give an adequate response to that poster and attempted to derail from the fact that western anime fans are mostly bitter poorfags who hate the fact that they have to pay for shit now.

Nice exaggerations, and he was completely right in that video.

Also, I still remember when I watched Mission-E when it aired. Last episode got translations a year and a half later. Fansubbing was so fucking great back then! So much better than what we get now!

Doubt it. Heroine is in the process of doing the first episode now with KamiFS who claims to have a new TL on board for the show. I can't speak for their accuracy since I haven't seen this new TL's stuff.

I'm actually going to agree with you here. It's clearly a pun on お久しぶり = おひさ = おっひさー = おっひざー.
In this case, the joke is translated over quite well.
>>
>>136256844
Oh, yeah. Forgot about them since they've been banned from Nyaa.
Guess we'll have to use them after Mori drops it. At least they're not as shit as Commie and Funi.
>>
>>136257056
They're legit when they do a series they like

i.e Monogatari and Oregairu. It's 100 times better than the subpar "official" subs

>>136257111
Translation is more than just an exact shift from one language to another. Some shit doesn't work in english. Commie understands this.
>>
>>136257111

I don't personally mind when a fansub makes a line funny for us instead of letting us know what the pun directly translates to, sometimes.

I'm sure some people would say that's a sin, but, "Long time no knee" is pretty great.

TL notes are fine if there's any wordplay related humor or other things that don't translate at all. Though, it's very much preferable to stick them at the beginning or end of the episode instead of cluttering the screen.

Soft subtitles are still coming with FunimationNow, but will not be available at launch due to timing even in May. We will begin switching over shows after launch, but I do not know the timing. We could possibly look into keeping track of which shows have soft subtitles on the forum at that time.

I remember reading a book passage and I actually KNEW what the original said and that the original was actually funny - but that was just because I was already fluent in English.
The translation made no sense whatsoever in German and I would have fired the translator immediately if it had been up to me.

You know why fansubbing is dead?

>Before HorribleSubs
Nobody is subbing Lupin. Only subs are from an Italian anon doing things at a reasonable but slowish pace with the Italian dubs. That or streaming subs. No Commie, no nothing.
>After HorribleSubs
Over 100 episodes of the original Lupin series subbed including the new series episodes.


Fansubbers did it to themselves. They have all sorts of anime that isn't subbed or has poor quality subs at their disposal but don't want to bother because it won't give them any e-cred or they are flat out lazy. Hell those translators could be doing some real good manga too.


HorribleSubs and Funi were the end-goal to subtitles. And I can assure you the people complaining about it don't remember what it's like to have to wait until the first cour of Code Geass was done to get a whole batch pack. It wasn't until season 2 of that show we got weekly subs because everyone and their mothers were subbing it and even then that was at the cost of many other obscure shows that I know didn't get their first episodes subbed until like the third week of the season.

>>
>>136258386
The humor is only then just found. Otherwise it's completely not understood at all. The other option is to try to make up your own wordplay joke which is fucking stupid because you end up "translating" words as words that are not being said. People who do understand what should be the words will point it out and basically people just do this for attention. Please fucking stop. You are not an adaptive scriptwriter for Funimation. You're a faggot with too much free time and a hobby.

And i have to say i am glad it is. Reason?

Thanks to Crunchyroll, finally, after 20 years i can get up to date Detective Conan subs without waiting months for translation and resorting to german youtube release with faggot narrating.

So if the retarded groups all worth of which is egomania and bickering are gone and the product i want is released consistently and reliably by commercial media - i am glad.

ESPECIALLY as your screen illustrates, with it covering most of shows airing each season.

In fact, even if nyaa and horrible subs die and one would have to pay for official release - its still step forward from the past.

Well, I mean the point is to do something you enjoy, right?
Going after stuff that nobody else does is a noble goal and a nice sentiment, but at the end of the day you're not responsible for every untranslated gem, nor should you feel obligated to seek things out just because they need a translation more.

Translate what you like. It's a hobby, enjoying the whole process should be more important than customer service.

Why do people actually prefer honorifics in subs in the majority of cases? Most anime viewers don't even notice that their usage in subtitles is rarely even consistent with what is being said.

It turned away newbs that would make up the majority of people on/a/ now.

Newfags just couln't do 10 bit, and horrible gathered alot more steam after that. Plus some anons were pissed off at subbers attitude, it was like "well what is the point of supporting a community/group when they don't give a shit about what we want?"

It was the beginning of the decline. Maybe when video playback programs natively playback 10bit it will finally be right to release in 10 bit. Subbers were impatient, thought "this would be a good opportunity to decrease bandwidth issues, storage difficulties, etc"

You'd wait a week or more for decent subs. Translation was slow.

Elitistfags sets up shop. Transport raws for everyone! Shows came with closed captions, meaning you could translate from script and not by ear. Fansub turnaround times go from about 7 days to about 72 hours, then 24 hours. Golden age of fansubbing.

>2010
Elitistfags shuts down. No more easy access transport raws.

>2010
Horriblesubs starts ripping Funi, Crunchy, and other 'official' subs within hours of their release. This + shortage of transport raws kills the independent fansubbing scene.

They only started releasing 10bit over 8bit when CCCP had support for it.

VLC couldn't do it well at the time. But that wasn't an issue, because libass wasn't supported by fansubbers either (because it couldn't handle typesetting well at all).

I'd say the peak in terms of actual quality while staff still existed was about 2012. Nobody new has really joined the fansubbing cartels since then, and they are dying a slow death.

At that point though CR's translations were passable most of the time, so editing them and adding typesetting because the obvious choice. This is a good thing to have, but it's a shame that it killed all the TLs needed for the cases when the translation is shit.

The "official" translation of NHK is wretched.

It's pockmarked with translator's notes on words like "kotatsu" and "hikikomori" (which it instead translated as otaku NEET). So heavily localized that it seems its intended audience isn't mentally handicapped: it could be fairly called 255 pages of spoonfeeding or the LN equivalent of a dub.

I still remember the P & S shitfest and the angel beats bandwagon when the 1st 6 eps were hyped as fuck.... oh and endless 8


Oh and lastly - uncensored TV airings, there are still some but they've toned them down staggeringly.

I remember when borderline hentai ecchi series were aired in Japan without any censorship.

Except he wasn't, his reasons against typesetting were absolutely retarded, by his logic there's absolutely nothing wrong with Funimation's literally-take-up-the-half-the-screen garbage typesetting.

Why would they write english on signs? Oh I don't know, why do the characters not question the magic floating english text in front of their faces?

They are usually uploaded to streaming sites first, then added to DDL in forums. Sadly, it's almost speedsubbing exclusively nowadays, so all the translations are inaccurate that you are better grabbing Spanish CR, everyone does that now I guess.

Watching on Hulu right now, I got sold on the convenience, much easier for multiple tvs, phone, tablet, at friends' places, etc. Small quality drop but not horrible for most shows, people forget how bad vhs used to be.

I still torrent all cel anime BDs and other shows that are especially good looking (ie kyoani, ovas).

Hentai aside, they require different skillsets.

The advantage of anime over manga is that subbers know when it will end. Translating manga could go on for years, members will change, and there will be issues.

If they are just shitty TV animations then why do you care about video or translation quality?

And there are obviously other reasons, its a beautiful and fun language, Japan is a wonderful place to backpack/travel, and it opens up a lot of content like interviews, obscure manga, books, etc. And Japan is a major trade partner with the US and the world's 3rd largest economy.

Most fansubbers only care about attention.
HS provides CR/Funi simulcasts quickly and efficiently, fansubbers usually can't snipe and steal the swarm and attention.
Fansubbers don't get paid in donations to keep doing it for "free".
Fansubbers realize spending time and effort isn't worth minimal acknowledgement.
They get lazy and drop everything once it gets boring (as seen in the past few years).
Finally they stop completely, outside of some lazy CR edits dropped halfway and maybe some American with N3 Japanese level who mistranslates everything but at least provides subs for one of the few untranslated shows of the season.

The only exceptions are people and groups who, from the start, did not do it strictly for attention, and work on older or overlooked series that don't have proper subtitles.

Be grateful that there are still rippers and encoders.
