Is fansubbing dead?
>almost no groups left
>releases are always weeks late even when they just steal CR/HS translations
>community is obsessed over entitlement issues and memes
I used to be a huge supporter of fansubs because they offered the highest quality video, softsubs, subbed karaokes, and at times better translations. but Im almost at the point where Im just going to get HS releases from now on because Im tired of waiting weeks and weeks for shit to be released when HS does so instantly.
Fansubs have accomplished their goal. More shows than ever are getting subs at a very impressive speed. Having no purpose left, the fansubbing scene resolves. This latter part makes fansubbers superior to the NATO.
b-but their work isn't done yet because CR/HS is complete shit compared to fansubs in terms of visual quality.
hardsubs are terrible and stream quality still doesn't match the raws you get from the TV broadcasts.
>in spite of professional subs being delivered in a timely manner for 90% of shows, fansubbers can barely release subs for the other 10% of the shows within the same month that episodes come out, much less the same year
>"fansubs have accomplished their goal"
even the shows that are being professionally subbed, like psycho pass, can't be fucking released in a timely manner by the only subgroup doing it, commie.
like fuck I know commie is shit but HS is even shittier
I really wish that more than one group was doing Amagi Brillian Park. It's among most people's top three anime of the season, and neither CR or Funi has it. What the fuck are fansubbers doing trying to make up new subs for shows that already have translations? Do they understand that anime fans want translations, and NOT a branded fansub that comes out too slow?
I think the only show that is getting <24 hour subs this season is Commie's OreTwi, although it's not like they're actually translating it. They just take Funimation's subs and add le funny memes. I remember when we had ~3 speedsub groups to pick from for Code Geass within 12 hours or so of an episode airing.
>Psycho Pass is up to episode 9
>Commie is still at episode 6
I don't understand how the biggest fansub group that has almost 100 people can't manage to get subs out for one of the biggest shows of the season, especially since all you have to fucking do is slightly modify the CR script AT BEST.
ya ok and I'll start settling for 30 fps video games and buying microwave dinner foods instead of cooking and using a steak knife to shave instead of my quality razor. because fuck having standards, right?
This is what confuses me most. All I want is a decent file with a softsub and a little extra qc check. Just so I don't have to stoop to horriblesubs. What is so difficult about that?
yes, one of the biggest shows. its a very popular show. just because it doesn't have your cute girls doing cute things doesn't mean it's not a show that a lot of people watch.
Aside from OreTwi, which Commie gets out in less than a day.
>it doesn't have your cute girls doing cute things
That simply isn't true.
The feeling is mutual. No one likes a pathetic little brony who basically exists to suck memecartel dick and parrot "ebin meemays" in download comments. Fuck Nyaa, and fuck that faggot.
They're okay, but nothing beats having a person who knows what they're doing encoding from a TV rip.
TV Rip > share raw > stream
Well, I guess I'll give it a shot, maybe. Start from next episode? Do the previous episodes? Do other shows?
>Commie is only at episode 9 of Stardust Crusaders
Which do you think will come out first, Episode 11 of Season 2 of Stardust Crusaders or Commie's subs of Episode 11 of Season 1 of Stardust Crusaders
The thing that annoys me with HS is how they often misspell show titles. I've been wondering why there are no yuuki yuuna subs since e4, but realised its because they spell it with 1 u. gg
The full name is Jinsei. You've never heard of it because it never got subs. It aired only last season, though. All episodes are subbed but the last one. Please help us.
Because he knows that pretty much everything said in these threads is the truth, that's why. He exists to serve the memecartel, and he has absolutely zero power on 4chan. That really stings.
>really wish i could ban people derp
But you can't. Faggot.
Found it. I'm not a translator - at least not a very good one unless it's text. Only FFF did up to 12 so I have nothing to work with. Find me subs, even Japanese subs/closed captioning and I'll do it.
they are so shit. for some reason their releases are always misaligned and a few pixels of one of the sides is always cut out.
I mean you can't even tell the difference without comparing screenshots but still.
It's good that you can still manage to laugh through the tears. In the future, try not to let shit on the Internet bother you so much that you can't stop talking about it, though.
Must suck for them we can watch their product for free,call it shit and they just keep making them anyway
I'll try, anon. I'm just a little worried about you, that's all. I thought maybe, just maybe, you couldn't admit to yourself that someone found what you posted on the internet to be genuinely funny because of an inferiority complex that could be the source of a crippling depression. You've got friends, anon. We're here to help if you need it, all you have to do is ask.
If something bothered you so much that you really feel like you need to keep stating how totally not hurt you are, I guess that's okay. Get it out of your system.
I'm just glad to know that, while your denial is a little disconcerting, there's nothing seriously wrong with you, and furthermore I'm happy to contribute to this great thread as a whole.
Maybe I've misunderstood something here, but have some people here been complaining that Commie isn't releasing episodes, but HS is? HS and Commie are the same shit, just one is troll subs and one isn't. I understand if a group that edits HS for the better and uses good raws stopped releasing, but Commie?
>/v/ermin thinking he can lecture /a/nons
You are the most hated board on this site, even moreso than /b/ because you unintentionally shit up every thread you are in when you leave containment. I want you to think about that for a minute.
at least 1 naruto thread hits the bump cap and gets archived everyday and there's barely any dub/spam in them, it's all shipping.
The problem is that some HS releases - Psycho-Pass and WIXOSS, for example - are Funimation rips with terrible video quality and burned-in subtitles that frequently cover the screen in 4-5 lines of monochrome text. It's really hard to enjoy the show that way, and to say the least.
yup. no SYD OVA subs near 2 months, no Mouretsu Pirates movie subs almost 1 month. Now toss 2199 OVA into that pile too. fansubbers were slowly choked out by CR & funi. fansubbing culture is dead.
>fansubbers were slowly choked out by CR & funi. fansubbing culture is dead.
I still find this hard to believe. Where are the people who used to make fansubs? They didn't die of old age in just 4 years. Were they all scouted by CR? Were they imprisoned and we just didn't hear about it? What the fuck happened to these people?
>it just ended so everyone's really tolerant.
The "tolerance" would have ended with the full-board attack that came with the last chapter and lasted for 2 weeks.
The Naruto spam was outside of /a/'s power to stop, so they simply resigned.
>b-but their work isn't done yet because CR/HS is complete shit compared to fansubs in terms of visual quality.
CR/HR can churn out subs faster than fansubs can and people don't like to wait. Thus, their purpose is fulfilled. People want quick subs, now they get them.
>yes but now they feel welcome
you guys fucked up, there's a foothold of narutoposters now and shitposting in their threads only encourages them. Truly unless the mods step in we are forsaken
Except currently airing shows crowding out ovas/movies/old shows is one of the oldest problems with fansubbing. Period.
This is a problem since the VHS era.
>have tapes for every episode of sailor moon
>no movies unless they were officially done many years later
Shit blows mate.
Fansubber here. I'll give you some rationale for the recent state of things. Speedsubs are dead because of simulcasts.
There were a few seasons where everyone competed on a few leftover shows, but that died out. People downloaded the more popular/larger groups regardless of speed so other groups just quit trying.
Now groups just do whatever they feel like. Nearly everything is simulcasted as well, so groups don't expect leechers to wait to watch. It's mostly for archiving or future BD releases. New groups pop up and act all tryhard for a while but they all burn out.
tl;dr No one cares and it's not remotely worth it anymore unless you're interested in something personally.
Right, so an alternative is just needed for Funi shows. So which shows this season is HS using Funi for, with no good alternative group? I'm already looking at doing Psycho Pass for the rest of the season because the shit quality has pissed me off.
Make me a list and I'll see what I can do.
>and people don't like to wait.
Yeah, this argument used to be so stupid.
When you get one release per week, then choosing one group over the other just means choosing one weekday over the other, the wait between two episodes is exactly the same.
It is only when groups are completely unreliable and/or need more than 7 days to sub an episode that this should be an argument. Unfortunately, that's often the case.
Are there enough people who want Jinsei 13 subbed? I'm ready to start doing it right now and could have it released in a few hours, but only the subtitle file. My Australian shit net can't do a full release.
These are the Funimation rips:
Selector Spread WIXOSS
Shingeki Bahamut Genesis
Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai
Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu
These have no Funi or CR:
Nanatsu no Taizai
Amagi Brilliant Park
The quality was often much shittier before CR, a lot of shows went and still are unsubbed, weeks/months was a normal wait for subs, .avi files everywhere, "x presents y", yellow subs (never bothered me), side notes covered the entire frame, drama everywhere (e.g. Shinsen), absolutely unwatchable encodes were not uncommon, cropped videos were also around (interestingly, I recently noticed that Commie's release of XX was cropped, or at the first episode was), etc.
Nothing is stopping you from starting your own subgroup. There are plenty of things that could use subs or better subs. If you're just looking to compete for first releases, then go with mango/LN/VN/etc.
id buy the blue rays if they didnt try to jew the fuck out of them by making them $50+ for just a few epidsodes, but nope.
Speaking of subs, when is OVA 2 gonna be finished for IS? It's been out for weeks
>>117943705 here. I haven't seen any of the Jinsei episodes so I don't know anything about the context of what's happening in the show.
At the beginning of ep 13, blue-hair tells the school council president that she "wins" and to "give second place" to Ikumi-chan. School council president then goes on to say how "second place" still has quite a substantial reward.
What kind of contest was going on in the show, and what are the other prizes, namely for #1?
Trying to compete with simulcasts and rips from companies is what really killed fansubbing. You just can't do it. It isn't worth it anymore. There is no motivation to do anything. Very few of the shows that don't get picked up by some company actually draw a lot of attention.
I was actually fine with the wait for subs back then.
The Japanese economy is garbage. If they didn't post those prices they wouldn't break even in revenue.
Will do for the rest of the season
>Shingeki Bahamut Genesis
Never heard of it. Unlikely to happen.
>Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai
>Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu
Not watching, try Doki?
>Nanatsu no Taizai
You can do subs? Great! I can do everything else.
I'm fine with the situation as it is.
When there's a good show that needs subbing because CR doesn't like it (Symphogear S3), somebody will rise up to the task, even if they need half a year to do it.
The only thing I really miss with HS exclusive releases is chapters.
I'd be cool with delayed subs which promise higher quality, but as said, things have devolved into CR-rip subs coming out sometimes two weeks or more after airing. And if you follow the sub blogs, it's usually because one critical person has fucked off without a word.
CR provides something fansubs never could though. As a business, it's accountable to customers for problems. Fansubs relied on a fansubber's sense of responsibility instead. It also has provided stability. Much less chance of random unsubbed shows (they'll probably get everything eventually). No worrying about a group dying and no one finishing the show (Hyouge Mono anyone?). If CR gets a show, you'll have it the exact same time every week with relatively stable quality (decent, but not amazing).
From a fan's perspective, CR and funi are a great step forward. Eventually we'll get everything that airs translated and simulcasted without needing to rely on random people on the internet. Fansubbers can just switch to BDs in order to remain remotely relevant. That's the new thing to compete over: the best BD release.
I don't really care whether you sub something or not, and am not saying this because I feel entitled or anything, but if you've "never heard of" Shingeki no Bahamut, then you are missing out on one of the top shows this season.
Different person here,
>I'm find with the situation as it is
This, except for the occasional piece that neither CR nor funi pick up, which results in it being ded 5ever, since fansubbing is dead.
They do it for free, I don't give a fuck how long they take
If you're fine with the wait, then go sub something as there are likely to be other people who will wait for better subs. If your only motivation is to be the faster subgroup, then do something else like mango/LN/VN/etc since that be much appreciated.
I don't care about what they like.
But when you visit the threads for Naruto or HxH (or similarly popular stuff), you'll notice a very different posting style.
These people don't belong here.
Excellent. If you wouldn't mind, could you send an e-mail when you release to this throw-away account I just made?:
That way I don't need to check Nyaa every few hours.
For anyone wondering, timing should take a few hours tops, but I'm probably going to bed before he releases subs. Expect episode release tomorrow evening if all goes well.
Commie's more than a month behind HS on Psycho Pass.
As for delay from translations, I'd be fine with that if progress wasn't a week at 0%, then full release in a day. I forget with group did it, but they decided that they were done waiting for their very, very absent TL to return, and used CR translations to "at least get it out". Which is what I would prefer to see from groups: don't let one AWOL member drag down everyone else's efforts, as even if you're using CR translations, getting quality typesetting, chaptering, and better video is worth it.
I never got around to figuring out how to make it not show everything.
Yeah, that would be even better. You should still release on Nyaa though, just in case shit happens someone else can use it too.
1) You are plain wrong if you think that they take up just a single thread. That's not much of a problem though. You are right that there are a sufficient amount of different threads out there.
2) You are delusional when you think they don't leak out to other threads, thinking that their kind of posting is acceptable on /a/.
I'm the timer/episode release guy. I'm actually going to see this movie in San Fran the week before Christmas with another anon. At least until then, I won't be touching it. Afterwards, I'll hunt around /a/ for a translator or existing translations if nobody has released it yet. It might be a possible (late) Christmas present.
But most of the people we shit on are reading this shit across are boards, we know just don't care. Like meeting the neighbor you don't like walking down the road and just give him the bird till your at the door.
Everything-but-TL guy again. Not sure if TL guy is interested, but if he or any other TL is, I'm in. I can also do probably-shit-but-watchable TL if you have Japanese subs.
Heh, this reminds me of that time when I got /a/ together to sub that SYD OVA a couple years back.
Are you the last spirit of fansub still alive?
I hope DJT pay off and we have a few translators more in a few years. I still need to get my shit together and start studying, I'm really thinking in pushing my high-school otouto to study with me so we push each other into it. The bad part is that he lives in another city with my parents, not sure how this will work out.
Doesn't help that animation in general is expensive. Same reason Disney and Nick started switching over to live action awhile back because it's just to expensive and not enough people have the passion to take cut wages.Also still why Disney made the most money out of their old animation because they made it when labor laws were non existent back then.
Same reason why manga is entirely fan done for the west. No company except maybe Shounen is invested enough in the west to give early enough access to beat someone who can scan it before it's out in Japan sometimes.
>Are you the last spirit of fansub still alive?
It's a step forward, but it's a step on a treadmill until all 3 sides, Nippan, Subbers, and community all work together. In an ideal world we pay $10-$20 a month and get every thing simulcasted, but not every company will sign with CR so there will be a pirating community that will in turn make the nips not trust CR and CR not trust us and then we get in the cold war we're in now.
Honestly, I wouldn't mind finishing shows that other groups fail to finish, or doing proper subs of shows that only get Funi/HS.
TL is the hardest part, so really, all I'd need to keep doing subs is a reliable TL guy(s). Either that or Japanese subs/script/closed captions. I still suck at understanding speech, but text is easy. Anything other than TL I can do, except maybe encodes, but there's share raws for that. Obviously, if it's just making HS Funi rips not shit, then a TL isn't needed, just time.
Anime fans are all types of people, from 12 year old girls to college professors. Bronies tend to only be fat, social rejects, and obsessed with their computers (often working in tech).
I saw a brony at a store once. An early-20's pimply fat loser in the children's toy aisle.
There is no comparison. One look at /mlp/ will tell you that if you don't believe me.
Why do you even care? Don't understand why Fansubs even do anything since nobody really cares or appreciate it.
Kind of a waste of time when even if you try to do something most people just tend to bitch and moan if they make a slight mistake. Rather, it's all bitching and moaning and none of the faggots who watch the shows will actually go and support the original release.
It's a bunch of beggers complaining about not getting the highest quality, despite doing nothing to contribute and leeching. If anything, all fansubs should just give up and actually do something worth their time, like going outside and saving orphans.
The average anime fan is just as bad if not worse than a hardcore ponyfucker with a Lyra plushie.
/v/ is a bunch of pee sea mustard ricers, they know nothing about gaming.
There's another guy doing the TL for Jinsei, I'm doing everything else. Like I said, finding a TL guy is the only real issue here. I'm far from being able to translate an episode of pretty much anything by myself. Not to say I can't, I might be able to, it would just be painfully slow and take more time than I have.
Average anime fan are those that just watch the show and maybe buy some trinkets if they come upon it on their way to the store. Average anime fans don't care about quality, who subs, or the translation.
There's a difference between average and faggots.
>my hips are moving on their own, sempai
>and owns shit like tablets.
You speak as if you don't have one. While anyone retarded enough to bring a tablet outside and walk around should be beaten and robbed on shit, at home a tablet is useful when your laptop is out of battery or just take to bed, rather than having a heavy laptop placed on top of you.
While CR/Funi subs have their faults, and they don't look particularly appealing, I trust them a lot more than fansubs because
a) minimal localization/liberties taken
b) minimal spelling and grammatical issues
I can't tell you how many shows and movies I've dropped, the sole reason being an inaccurate fansub that took great liberties in the translation, to the point that whenever a character would exclaim "Ah!" in surprise, the sub would have it as "Oh my god!"
Neither is perfect, but if you prefer hardsubs with terrible video quality over a softsubbed fansub because of short exclamations THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND DONT NEED TO LOOK AT THE SUBTITLE FOR, then you are a plebeian.
My labtop screens fairly high quality and also large ≠ good. My desktop has a 1920*1200 24" IPS panel but really the convenience of a labtop for fapping outweighs the computer. I use my desktop for watching anime.
>image of a man installing a chimney cap
>censored porn of obama's mother
>image entitled 'zombie outbreak'
>horrifying guro with holes in the girls' bodies
>one image that looks to be a futa girl sticking her dick into a mannequin's nipple
>pictures of flooding water from broken dams
What the fuck have you gotten yourself into, man?
I enjoy being able to move around with my laptop, not having to constantly plug it in and being able to sleep with it and watch shows anywhere outside of my basement. It also don't take much effort to carry it around.
I'll admit that I don't have a high standard for watching anime, so I'm very grateful to CR and HS that I can watch anime in fast and reliable time.
Though it kinda suck with movies and OVAs that they could only hope to be subbed if some fansub took interest it it and decided to sub it.
As if there's really any difference between 720p and 1080p. Wasting extra data for a little bit more resolution is stupid, being picky even more so. It just make you look like a spoiled faggot, especially when you didn't do or pay for shit.
People complain to fucking much. Fucking kids these days. They're the reason why the whole world is going to shit.
720p anime on a 1080p screen looks better than 720p anime on a 720p screen. The pixels are smaller on the larger screen, making the lines in the anime smoother and more detailed.
>People complain to fucking much.
I found it again fairly quickly too.
>As if there's really any difference between 720p and 1080p
I found the console user.
> They're the reason why the whole world is going to shit.
No, people settling for the worse is why the whole world is going to shit.
Do you really need to give a shit about the lines being smoother or more detailed or any fucking shit, especially if you're going to be watching with subs?
When you're watching with subs just read the fucking words and look at the characters move their mouth. Who gives a fuck about how detailed that cat in the background is. We move away from cell to digital and all fucking kids do nowadays is complaining about the walls not being a right color. Half the fucking people here don't even just watch the show for the show anymore, rather just to find things to bitch about. How utterly retarded.
My phone has a 960x540 screen and I can't see any evidence of pixelation no matter how close I put my eye to the screen. 2K is just wasted, same with the idiots that buy 4K TVs and sit 3 meters away from them.
> implying console users don't watch anime
> implying they don't apply their inherently inferior brains to justify 720p resolution everywhere, not just in videogames
> implying /v/ users don't defend consoles
There's that word again!
> at least have the balls to actually go and pay for the fucking thing.
But if I pay for it, for example, if I pay for a Crunchyroll account, I will get an inferior quality product.
Are you retarded?
Oh man, it's one of those elitarian topics again on /a/. If you just want to watch it with subs than pick whatever you like. Unless it's Hadena because that is just garbage.
If you really hate some subs, then feel free to make your own or better yet, just learn some nihong so you don't even need to read subs.
60fps has always been a standard in video games. If you really believe that console games are supposed to run at 30fps than I can't believe you are not a PR-guy from Ubisoft
>No, people settling for the worse is why the whole world is going to shit.
Before acting like you're entitle to high quality shit at least have the balls to actually go and pay for the fucking thing.
It's the equivalent of a hobo going to a soup kitchen and complaining about how he's not getting caviar and golden bread.
30 FPS is the standard, not 60. 60 is pointless. Most people delude themselves into thinking they see the difference.
Ocarina of Time ran at 20 FPS and is one of the best games that have ever been released.
I'm sorry dude but I did some research and found that the human eye generally can't see a difference past 300 pixels per inch. Those are the facts. I'm just talking about phones, not monitors.
Nepotism and networking are two very different things. You're an idiot and you have always been an idiot and you will die an idiot and you will be referred to as an idiot long after you die.
I'm not surprised that you defend shittyroll, because without shittyroll your "fansubbing" group is nothing.
Nobody is asking you to pay for crunchyroll's shit. Rather don't support those fuckers since they chune out garbage then throw it away when they don't get money for it.
Fuck those faggots.
Watch the show in normal quality, 720 or hell even 480p. Then go and buy the 1080p if you like it. Otherwise just watch the shit in standard and stop bitching and moaning about not having the highest quality possible.
>Nepotism and networking are two very different things.
Just because you're "friends" with someone at Crunchyroll, it doesn't mean you automatically get a job. It gets your foot in the door, which is pretty much what networking is.
>I'm not surprised that you defend shittyroll, because without shittyroll your "fansubbing" group is nothing.
That's funny. As of this moment, thanks to Crunchyroll, we have over half a billion downloads. As much as I hate to say it, we're the most popular group out there. By a large margin. And you can't do shit about it.
It's the equivalent of a hobo going to a soup kitchen, finding there's no soup, and when he wonders why he didn't go to the other soup kitchen, being yelled at for being entitled and told to wait a few days. And the soup is the same but not as good.
See, you're making out like Mr. Hobo has no choice. He does. If the subgroups stuck to series that actually need some fucking subs, there'd be hardly any issue here, but they refuse to do that.
> This couldn't be shit! Millions of flies like it!
When shittyroll is dead, which is soon, you're also dead. You're nothing. You haven't done anything. You're just defending a shitty corporation on an anonymous imageboard, for free, after stealing their content.
>hurp dont announce reports gaiz, follow moots new made-up rules to the letter!
Back when 4chan was still good, the board functioned healthily BECAUSE we announced our reports, and because people could see that we'd used a sage.
>The normal quality is 1080p, you fucking idiot.
Wow you're one spoiled motherfucker. You want BD quality but not willing to pay for it. I assume you also consider fiberoptics and cable as free shit that you don't have to actually pay for, that it's normal to have them for free don't you?
>Because I'm going to buy blu-rays for $100 per episode. Right.
Nobody is forcing you to buy the blu-rays. Just watch it normally as it is and buy it if you like it. Stop leeching and then complaining like a dumbass about not having the highest quality possible when you don't even plan to pay a cent to support them.
Different guy, of course you can tell the difference but 60fps isn't necessarily or in most cases better. A lot of the time, especially in live action, due to people being used to watching 30fps, 60fps feels extremely unnatural. It can both help and hurt, and let us stick with the standard of 30. 60 also won't make much of a real difference in a show animated in 30fps. It'll just mean each frame is now displayed twice, it has no actual impact on how the framing works.
That still isn't explaining why you're such an autistic faggot getting mad on imageboard You are the cancer
Why? Because they remind you too much of your community?
/a/ and /v/ are the same kind of boards. The only differences are
1. one board discusses video game related topics and the other anime and manga related
2. /a/ hates spoonfeeding while /v/ encourages it
Just go take a look yourself. I visit both of them daily. Its users are just as annoying, just as self-entitled and arrogant and just as stupid.
Also, most gamers watch anime and read manga and vice-versa. Or at least I know I do.
>See, you're making out like Mr. Hobo has no choice. He does.
He doesn't. The fact that people even give a shit as to open a soup kitchen and actually volunteer to feed his useless ass he should be content. It's not that he doesn't find any soup, it's that he's complaining that the soup he gets isn't the best, highest quality soup distributed despite that he's not going to give anything back in anyway.
It's fucking assholes that bitch and moan about not having the highest quality despite the standard, being just as good, then proceed to complain so more without paying a cent that is just absolutely disgusting.
With 3D-games, I still prefer 60fps with shooters and fighting games. And racing games. For other genres like RPGs it feels less important to me.
And that's the last /v/-related post I make in this thread. This is still /a/.
> for 3d games I actually prefer 30fps as it feels more natural.
I wouldn't say its died it was more of the fact that Funi/CR are picking up 99 percent off the stuff they probably feel its kinda pointless.
It would be nice if a decent group would be dedicated to OVA's/Movies that kind of thing.
i don't think you understand my point
> It's fucking assholes that bitch and moan about not having the highest quality despite the standard, being just as good
The highest quality is the standard.
The inferior quality is inferior.
How are you retarded enough to not understand this?
How are you encouraging people to be content with mediocrity, leading to mediocrity being accepted as the new standard?
The meme shit they do with this character is so bad I actually have an easier time just switching my brain off the subs and listening to what the character is saying.
Why do I have to be content with inferior quality? I don't get it.
1080p is not technically harder to do than 720p, it's just a matter of encoding source material.
Since people accept 720p as the standard thanks to people like you despite the fact that 1080p should be the standard, 1080p is not as popular, so subbers don't bother.
Meaning shitters like you are ruining everything as always.
>The highest quality is the standard.
The highest quality is something that you actually went and paid for, extra even. You paid for it with your hard earned money, you do deserve the best yes. If you pay for first class on a plane, you deserve first class quality. Anything less that should be a complaint.
But here you're getting your shit for free. Rather, you're leeching this shit. You don't have the right to complain about not having the highest quality immediately. You can still get a good, decent one that's almost the same but only slightly inferior. But if you're still going to complain about that, you're just a spoiled shit head.
Stop acting like a filthy chink still thinking he's living in a world where he get everything for free because he's too stupid to understand the concept of communism.
I don't think you understand.
Since we're talking about illegal downloads, there's no "better" and "worse" quality. You're supposed to pay for 720 too, you're supposed to pay for 480 too, you're supposed to pay for awful typesetting, you're supposed to pay for shit quality translations.
You're saying that you can't complain about literally anything until you pay for it, at which point you STILL can't complain about it because you should not have bought it, thus voting with your wallet.
Do you see my point now, you inbred homunculus?
Why are you acting like all fansub releases would be coming out weeks late?
It's certainly true that Commie and FFF are slowpoking on some shows, but other than that I'm personally doing pretty fine watching nothing but fansub releases for the things I'm watching this season.
Also, OVAs and other irregularly scheduled things have always been a pain in the ass to deal with compared to regular weekly airings.
People just sitting there and taking the corporate dick is why the world has gone to shit.
Not people who see issues and want them fixed.
> You can still get a good, decent one that's almost the same but only slightly inferior.
Horriblesubs and 720p are not "slightly inferior". If I pay I get the same inferior shit by the way.
Yes, I know what you're mean you dick.
I'm just sick and tired of people bitching and moaning left and right about not having 1080p immediately right on their lap.
I'm not saying you can't complain unless you pay for it if it's shit, but complaining about it not being the highest quality possible is just retarded.
If a show is shit because it is just shit, go complain to your heart's content.
But if your main complaint about the show is that you couldn't get it because it was only in 720p and the only way to get 1080p was through buying the BD, you're a fucking piece of shit.
> I'm just sick and tired of people bitching and moaning left and right about not having 1080p immediately right on their lap.
Why are you upset that people want the standard quality, rather than highly inferior quality? 720p is highly inferior. That's a lot of pixels lost.
Two big issues: didn't have any connections to get a recommendation, and living about half a world away from San Francisco (which is where all the potentially interesting kind of CR jobs would be, they don't really hire remote workers outside of translators and timers).
BTW, they have way too many translators now. There's only a fixed amount of show every season while as there are probably a lot more qualified translators.
Well, that's how he got his current job shilling for Fakku by bitching on the internet. It worked out in the end, even if it's in funny ways.
I'm more upset about people always complaining about not getting the best when they haven't done shit or act like they deserve it. It just make them look like spoil bastards.
Then people are going to have to spoon feed these fuckers and make them feel like they are entitle to it. It's like a fucking little kid crying about getting an android or someshit instead of a fucking Iphone or something. You give the little fucker the Iphone and now he'll think that he'll always need to have the best regardless and will continue to complain and complain.
If there's anything I hate worse is fuckers that complain and complain yet contribute nothing but still complain like they're something special. Spoiled brats are the worse.

Explain this bullshit daiz
i want my taiwanese rice paper origami
I do actually have someone who could recommend me now (who even offered to do so), but the location issue would still be a pretty big show-stopper.
Though even if it wasn't, I probably wouldn't pursue it right now since I already have my job at FAKKU where I get to do actually interesting work on digital distribution. It's quite unlikely that I could be able to get into a high enough position to do something similarly interesting at CR.
No one has patience, People would always use fan subs over CR/Funi but not many like to wait.
I'm not saying now to complain if something is shit. If something is decent there is no need to act like a spoiled brat about not getting the best possible.
But I guess your standard for decent is probably Shaft style twice remade Blu-ray so we're not going to be going.
Constant complaints regardless of whatever you get just make everyone look like ungrateful spoiled sons of bitches.
On the one hand CR/Funi subs most shows so we have access to the majority without all the shitty fansubbing drama.
On the other hand, the rest of the fansub groups are focused on simulcasted shows instead of OVAs, movies and otherwise non-trasnlated stuff that we will never get. I understand you wouldn't want to work on something you don't enjoy, but this is just a terrible waste.
But if there isn't 1080p but only 720p yet complaining about not having 1080p immediately, that's fucking retarded.
I see these fucking people all too much and they piss me off.
> people smarter than you piss you off
as it should be, inbred retard.
> can't quickly downscale my 1080p quality down to 720p to watch on my nexus
> can't fix a typo or a timing error
Fansubbing is indeed dead in quality and cooperation. I'm this guy.
People now just want to compete or shoot each other down just for attention.
Don't understand why subbers even exist or care enough to continue doing thing. Do they do it because they feel like they accomplish something despite the fact that nobody care or even like what they do?
Does it make them feel like they're worth something just because people might rely on even through they hate what you're doing?
I've come to a conclusion that all subbers are dedicated masochist and sadistic freaks.
And that's kinda cool
That or they actually enjoy what they're doing. You don't really see people like that nowadays, doing shit just because they want to do it regardless, where they're just happy just being able to do it.
The problem with that is interest. No one does anything they aren't interested in these days, especially translators. And that's what keeps things from getting done. Not even the coolest translator would just translate anything and everything people throw at them.
But that's fucking wrong. Anime is typically mastered at lower than 1080p, meaning 720p is the standard for a reason. That, and TV streams are 1080i so of course they get released in 720p. It's not that subbers don't bother, it's that you're fucking stupid.
Fansubbers in some countries (Germany) are still like this and it's pure cancer.
>hardsubbing "don't sell this on eBay"
>DDoSing groups who don't delete their fansubs after the show got licensed
Well, I created a pure memory for those people who enjoyed cartoons like that.
I guess I accomplished something;.
Thank Funimation and Crunchyroll for being filthy kikes who set up that mindset. People often say "Well Anime is gonna be ruined by the west and become normalfag."
It already has. long time ago. Nobody wants tor read the manga, not even have the original OST and replaced by blaring tech-rock shit.
If people aren't interested, they aren't interested. Why should they spend their time doing something they don't like, especially when they don't get paid?
We're not living in some fucked up Egalitarian world where everyone just do things for the sake of others.
>That "mindset" in question completely predates the existence of Funimation and Crunchyroll.
It might have exist, but not of this volume. people actually wanted to spread Japanese animation awareness and in the 70's, you had people who tried (and failed) to ,make it illegal to import and pirate anime because of their idea of licensing it like greedy fucks they are.
It was not until Funimation and Toonami together who set up that mindset. Thankfully, it's not illegal.
I'm actually not, but its retarded to get upset that someone else on the internet, uses different parts of the same website as you.
>It already has. long time ago.
Acting like anime and manga is some sort of secret club is stupid and just being a dumbass hipster.
If you like something just like it, regardless of what happens. Don't let other people decide what you like, you fucking sheep.
I like reading Toriko. It's not the best thing ever created, everyone on /a/ hates it and at times it's just downright stupid but I like it because I read it to pass time and it's fun.
I also like Nisekoi because I like the author's work. it's shit at times because it's cliche as hell, all I see from people is complaints and it too is also stupid from time to time. But I still like and read it regardless.
You misunderstand. He said there should be a group dedicated to doing OVAs or movies. That's all well and good until you realize that doesn't work. Format isn't important to a translator in terms of interest. People aren't interested in just subbing OVAs or movies because someone else wants them. A normal fansub group will simply do the OVAs or movies they find interesting already.
You're part of /a/ too and part of the problem, not the solution. In otherwords, you too made /a/ shit.
Not that /a/ wasn't shit to begin with. You're a fucktard if you think it was anthing else to begin with.
/a/ has become shit because you can't leave your shit from other boards on the other boards?
I browse a shit ton of other boards but I don't take their shit to /a/ or vice versa.
>you are the reason, why /a/ became shit.
>This shitty excuse again
No, you fucking retard. you keep provoking them, instead of ignoring them. you refuse to to report, hide, and filter. You are like Liberals who think they'll win by kicking and screaming.
Conservatives always lose simply because progress always shits on their cancerous mentality. We don't even have to do anything, we can just let conservatives open their mouths.
Does anyone ever wonder what the people who used to lead the great fansubs in the past went on to once they dropped doing it? Started a normalfag hobby? Stopped anime altogether? Some might have wound up with a career and family?
It's not /a/'s future, it's /a/'s present. Faggots like you pretending to be oldfags are the reason /a/ went to shit because you actually think because someone told you how /a/ was around 2006 it's supposed to be always like that.
>That entire description.
Not likely. this is why I don't like normalfags, they get scared of the psychological warfare trying to make them what they think should be "normal" and now you just become a depressed fool.
Don't you have some moeshit to jerkoff to instead of waiting for someone to reply and acknowledge your useless waste of an existance?
Go hate on anonymous people that came from the same shit site and proceed to presume they're from that one group that you keep hearing about how much /a/ hates because they just hate it so you have to hate it to so you can fit in because you have no opinion or mind of your own.
And /pol/ is here. Fucking hell, I'm loving this already.
Let it burn, let it all burn! Abortion should be legal because it's the women's right to choose.
War is a fucking waste cause no people should be killed.
There should be no gun control because I should have the right to go outside and shoot a nigger when I want to, in self defense.
06 /a/ was way more cancerous. Nostalgia goggles has really fogged up how people perceive the old board culture.
What does it matter. We're all consider underage retarded manchilds regardless.
Do you think that /a/ actually age? For all we know everyone can be in their 30s and just here to shitpost for the fun of it. It's the only thing to do this a shithole like this anyway.
I bet you were one of those, weren't you? You wanted to do something like that and have people suck your dick, actually care about your existance.
I bet you still want to do it, don't ya Mr.Adult.
The whole of 4chan is pure shit. That's what makes it a good site.
If I want to post and give a shit I would go to some other shitty site that require me to register and treat other faggots with respects and crap.
Why the fuck else are you on 4chan if not for shitting on everything and trying to make this place even more shitty for no reason?
My only issue is the people who willingly give money to Funi. What the FUCK is wrong with them.
Crunchyroll fine, they're hypocritical Judas cunts but they have at least improved over time. Funi on the other hand are bottom of the barrel, and giving them money means they pick up even more shows.
I'm just going to start switching to HS after this season. I really value being able to watch the shows I pick to follow at least once a week. I dont need the releases to be first or done within 48 hours of airing.... I just need it at least once a fucking week. The fact that so many shows are now behind by multiple weeks disgusts me.
I am going to miss the superior type setting, chapters, video quality, and karaokes though. That is why I pick fansubbers over HS. Sadly fansubbers are so fucking deluded that they only care about whos first and who gets the most downloads, completely ignoring the fact that there are at least 100 DLs for even the smallest of fansub groups.
>superior type setting
This is annoying, because Crunchyroll attempts really bad typesetting. It's distracting and looks shit, much much worse than actual fansubs.
Just map a key to seek by 85 seconds.
This is an issue with some shows. You could download a TV raw and use it with the horriblesubs subtitles.
I miss this too. I just want a song translation to get the general themes.
Naw, independent subbers that can't time for shit are completely unwatchable.
I used to work as a corrector in a fansub group, our translator used to be an independent translator.
His timing and grammar were vomit inducing.
