OK anons lets talk about this. Why is everyone hailing UTW's Fate Apocrypha as the second coming of christ when it does not even have a proper kfx, they are just slapping subs on the OP.
>>
>>160880257
because they are elevated on the highest pedestal which will be explained when you lurk more

And then theirs Chihiro. They not only put a great kfx in the OP of Suka Suka last season, they even used kfx on that random song in Episode 1. They even used some great fonts unlike the bland fonts UTW is using for Fate Apocrypha.

Nobody cares about kfx today. That's something that belongs in ten years ago.
>>
>>160880435
herkz please

>>160880540
He's absolutely right though.
I'm glad that coloured subs and kfx are a thing of past.
>>
>>160880257
You should be happy we get fansubs of this quality at all you little ingrate.
>>
>>160880257
>kfx
Fucking weeaboo

>glad
Why?

>Translates 彼女 as "he"
>People unironically defend it
Fansubbing was a mistake.
>>
>>160880624
They always bothered my sense of aesthetics.
I never minded signs and other notes being heavily stylized, but not the speech itself and many subbers tried to show off as much as they could in that regard. And kfx cluttered openings even more which considering the quality of video and credits in openings/endings, dind't help that much when you wanted to actually watch it.

And heres some kfx on Boku no Hero Academia by kBaraka, who works alone. He even uses attack fx when they say stuffs like "Samash".
>>
>>160880689
Well atleast we dont have hardsubbed kfx anymore.
>>
Oh man I miss those days of kfx, attack fx, stylish colored fonts, honorifics and tl notes.

Heres another example of attack fx by hatsuyuki in the Hunter x Hunter movie.
>>
>>160880979
And who needs that? It doesn't even look good
>>
>>160880257
I never liked this shit in the first place, actually the fact people still sub op but tl notes are mostly gone drive me up the fucking wall.
>>
>>160880257
Because kfx is shit and a complete waste of time.
>>
>>160881047
I blame /a/ for scaring people out of using tl notes.

It's ugly shit whose only purpose is to draw attention to the fansubbers.

oops no subs in the screen capture
>>
>>160880257
I've never cared about that shit. Color coded subs depending on who's talking, now that's the good stuff.
>>
no one cares about that shit and it's only good UTW doesn't waste their time on it
>>
>>160881534
How is that not fucking hideous? The translated line blends with that particular background, but just looks odd on her dress. The romaji clashes with almost everything else on the screen, and the Japanese is almost illegible in those colours, even assuming you can read the script.
At least the actual karaoke is limited to recolouring the text rather than pissing about moving or morphing it.
>>
>>160880257
Because subs quality is measured by its translation, not how much effects its OP and ED karaoke has.

>>160882010
A good release is a compilation of everything - script,styling,kfx,typesetting and encoding.

And then theres Commie. I dont even know what they are doing here(its from Maria Holic Alive).
>>
KFX and other animated subtitles are a waste of processing power. I care more about things like properly typeset signs.
>>
>>160882010
>>160881753
>>160881111
The thing is they used kfx in their earlier releases like Fate Zero
>>
>>160881277
The fuck is this shit
>>
UTW is just a name the staff who worked on shows they did years ago aren't even active anymore.
>>
>>160882623
yeah its just Commie and FFF staffs now
>>
I miss karaoke and kfx
