Where were you when UTW died, /a/?
Well, I can't blame him for wanting to have a life instead of being yelled at by autists. People grow up.
Medical school is not really compatible with fansubbing, and CR provides a pretty decent alternative. Now other groups can start up with only encoding and typesetting knowledge and do a good job.
The only groups besides UTW that did original translations are gg and Hadena and both are dead.
Fansubbing truly is extinct though Hadena could hardly be considered a "quality" group.
You don't get my point. I said we still have other fansubs groups. You are exaggerating with that "The Day Fansubbing Died" filename as if UTW is the only group that matters, faggot.
Except you don't quite understand what "fansubbing" is do you? UTW is/was the last group that actually had original translations for their subs. Every other "fansub" group that you use just utilize Crunchyroll's scripts.
>The only groups besides UTW that did original translations are gg and Hadena
You are wrong. There are others that sometimes use original translations instead of CR edits. Not every shows from a particular group get the same treatment, you know.
That faggot is just pulling shit out of his ass. Even Vivid this season has one show with original translations.
Unless he decide to act like the faggot he is and does not believe that because >muh UTW mindset.
I don't care for them, and not just because of Diaz who decided to change encoding because he wanted to reduce filesizes by a couple of MB in an age where 1 GB is cheaper than something from a vending machine. Not to mention muh quality because everyone wants to preserve TV airing for some fucking reason.
>Fansubbing is kill
>Only Crunchy and Funi are available
>Neither sub shows like Ryu ku bu or Kodomo jikan for "ethical reasons"
You could have stopped this
B-but muh attention.
Nearly every fansubber/scanlator/whatever is like this, nothing new under the sun. Just don't give them any attention like any rational person (unlike this attention whoring tripfag) would do.
>UTW won't sub Fate/Stay Night next season, their namesake
People gave these guys $4000
Oh please, honours year was worse than the first four semesters of med school and I still found time to watch anime and time releases for an active subgroup back then.
Raze is just a baby.
If you don't like it, feel free to filter me unless you don't know how to.
Shitposting isn't against the rules but people do it anyways, likewise donning a tripcode isn't against the rules so...
>they dropped Nise
Holy shit, fuck you Raze.
From instant I saw that post announcing they wouldn't be doing any shows in the spring I knew they were finished. A subgroup that doesn't sub is done. It's just _ar limping along trying to finish projects, the group's momentum is kaput.
>spending hours and hours memorizing trivial trivia for meaningless exams that have no relation to actual medical work
>after medical school, a disproportionate number of residents develop depression and mental illness as they work long hours at the beck and call of the attending physicians
>if they're lucky, they get to spend their adult life--or rather, what's left of it--making a lot of money, but having to work so much that there's no time to enjoy it anyway
Typically I have nothing but contempt for (pre)medical students, but in this case I just feel sorry for him and hope he exits that toxic profession as soon as possible.
UTW and Amagami, I will never forget you.
It isn't the same with Eclipse dying now with UTW possibly bowing out because the overlap between UTW and Eclipse is now not present. On the translation front, translation quality has declined slightly and has been constant since Eclipse translation days.
Is there a clear group who is clearly on UTW quality and has consistency to match? Because I really debate Raze's assertion that there is talent still in the fansubbing scene when there are so many fragmented groups that while could be on the level that UTW is, don't have the same amount of capacity or momentum they have. I don't know if fansubbing might die out soon because legitimate services are now starting to reach ubiquity in terms of speed and convenience, but slightly less in quality, to stream and broadcast shows. Japan is catching on so I have no clue when they will be able to do the same with manga but it might happen soon.
Daiz was the last major fansubber left standing. Without UnderTheWater, who will translate your favorite animes?
>Hadena will revel in this news and will be the sole translator of everything Type-Moon in the future.
There will always be shows that don't get simulcast or picked up by the licensing companies or legal streams. There will always be a place for TV rips and fansubbers to sub them.
It's just going to be a greatly diminished place, a niche within a niche.
The era when anime fans depended on fansubbers to watch anime is over. Japan and the licensing companies can bring a multitude of subbed shows to fans legally, and site-rippers like HS can provide that content for free.
So that only leaves the small minority of shows that don't get legally subbed or aren't available uncensored as projects for fansubbers.
Essentially: fansubbing will become an obscure world far removed from mainstream anime, a domain of hipsters and nonconformists. This is the path ahead of us.
Why would properly using a built-in feature be bannable?
It's in bad taste because this website is based on anonymity, with a feature to preserve identity when it is required for certain discussion. But that's all.
But will you actually start this time?
Last I saw him he was logged into League of Legends but that was maybe 3 weeks ago? I haven't logged in in awhile so I don't know if he's still doing that. He's been working behind the scenes for some other groups though I believe why gg is incapacitated last I checked.
>Hadena will revel in this news and will be the sole translator of everything Type-Moon in the future.
Fucking hell, I just realized that UTW won't be here to sub Fate/Stay Night next season.
That just hit me like a ton of bricks.
If I didn't start for Rance, I doubt I'll start for this.
Seeing as this is the case, could we start saying the golden era was the early to mid 2000's for fansubbing and quality? Because I don't think we'll reach that level of quality ever again.
M-maybe they'll come back just for that, r-right?
>Fucking hell, I just realized that UTW won't be here to sub Fate/Stay Night next season.
>First, about the F/SN remake airing next season. Believe me, I am extremely excited about it too and very much look forward to it. However, whether I will personally work on it or not is still up in the air. The quality and punctuality of the legal alternatives will be the deciding factor: if the simulcaster provides legitimate 720p video or above and/or the script quality isn’t completely unacceptable, I will almost certainly forego the opportunity of working on it, because, well, I think you’d agree that waking up at 3am in the morning and spending 5-6 hours to make a bunch of insignificant changes in an already decent script for a show that 90% of people have already watched because they couldn’t wait isn’t exactly a good use of my time and sanity… right?
There's still hope
>Because I really debate Raze's assertion that there is talent still in the fansubbing scene
Disregarding fansubbing. Raze is right when it comes to his assertions of CR's translators.
The better half of CR does rival the better half of fansubbing.
It's mostly just that the rest of CR has a tough time to compete. And as subtitles can never be delayed with CR's business model, a translator calling in sick due to whatever can cause them problems if they can't get another competent translator to fill in for him.
But otherwise CR really is good. A lot of their translations are great, even if some are indeed sorely lacking.
A common mistake /a/ does is to simply judge everything a group does from nothing but their brand. Disregarding how the work itself varies from show to show and release to release.
Judging fansubbing in this manner was already unsuitable enough as it is. And judging CR this way is probably even less good of an idea, considering how CR has more translators than any fansub group, and thus the releases does vary.
>As for the second title, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Ilya 2wei!, __ar has plans to push ahead with it and has already assembled a team for it; I will be assisting as a consultant but will not be directly working on the release itself.
Only time will tell, but personally I distrust this new era of fansubbing. It's too centralized. The way things are going, soon every show will have only one source for subtitles.
The real danger is losing capable translators who can translate from scratch. If those people completely quit the scene, then fansubbing will be fucked beyond repair if anything happens to the centralized subbing system that's coming into place.
>because you can finally understand how bad the voice acting is in some shows
Not really an issue, bad voice acting is bad voice acting and should be clear regardless of how much you know the language. Maybe how awkward some lines really are, but that's the writing's fault and not really the actor's.
>cringe at some lyrics
You've got me there.
I've never gotten why people think this.
Perception of tone and intonation is completely irrelevant to the language.
Don't tell me you've never been able to tell when a VA was doing a half-assed job or, or really putting his heart into it.
Pronunciation, on the other hand, is a completely different matter.
>start learning moon.
You realize that when you have a basic understanding of Nippongo, horrible subs are fine. you only look at the subtitles when you run into unfamiliar vocabulary. Unless you care about video quality, which I don't because I have a small computer screen. Then again, it shouldn't much matter unless you're watching on your fucking TV.
The only thing that I can imagine being bad from it is if they start restricting which shows they decide to license and sub. If something is too graphic or too lewd or too immoral, they may not sub that and then that's were fansub groups come in, right?
So just curious, but why haven't we boycotted HS/CR yet?
The only reason I ever pick them is because they are the fastest. I never find myself amazed by their subtitles and definitely not their video quality. Meanwhile other subgroups release good quality encodes and subs that are done from a viewer's perspective instead of a businessman's perspective.
I can only tell if the voice acting is bad if I recognize some the words. A bad "sugoi onii chan" is a bad sugoi onii chan, a bad Hong Kong ching ching just sounds like gibberish. When I was first watching anime I tuned out the voice acting completely to read the subs, and sometimes I still tune out the vocal track.
Up his tight little ass.
I am against putting all my eggs in one basket. One of the best advantages to fansubbing before CR was how decentralized it was. If one group had delays or couldn't finish a series, there would be another group working on same anime. The redundancy of subs for shows is a great boon to fans because it gives us options and gives us backups in case one group fails.
But if CR becomes the only source of subs, that's risky because you're essentially betting that CR will never fail to deliver. It's an all or nothing bet that quite frankly I see no point in making. So that's why even though I'm not opposed to CR I'm very much opposed to the growing mentality fansubbers have that "if CR's doing it there's no point"
This mindset will only lead to disaster. CR will not be around forever, anime is doing good business for now but that won't always be the case.
>because they are the fastest
Answered your own question.
Personally, I don't mind waiting one or two days for a fansub release (or an AT-X release for thóse shows) but I don't really want to repeat what happened last season )I was one of the twelve people who watched WhyNot's Ping Pong, even though it was the exact same as CR script-wise)
I guess. I never get artifacts in CR rips.
Most release won't even be typesetted in 3 years at most. My worst nightmares are coming true.
>Subgroups who use MX as a base look worse than CR encodes, which are honestly pretty good.
It really depends on the show, and TV rips have the advantage of being encoded in 10bit h264.
That's a worst case scenario. The scene will recover because the need will drive more people to pick up fansubbing again, but it'll be like the fall of Rome. We'll have to rebuild.
>Not always. Subgroups who use MX as a base look worse than CR encodes, which are honestly pretty good.
Not always. Shows like Akame ga Kill are fucked six ways to Sunday on CR with all the banding crawling across every scene.
Generally, sub groups don't use Tokyo MX because they want to, but because it's the least bad option.
madvr debanding works pretty well.
And the subs are 90% good enough, that's even the point of the entire blog post.
>if the simulcaster provides legitimate 720p video or above and/or the script quality isn’t completely unacceptable, I will almost certainly forego the opportunity of working on it, because, well, I think you’d agree that waking up at 3am in the morning and spending 5-6 hours to make a bunch of insignificant changes in an already decent script for a show that 90% of people have already watched because they couldn’t wait isn’t exactly a good use of my time and sanity… right?
Most people do favor speed, if you look at the download numbers on nyaa for releases every week the first release generally has the most.
But there's a segment of the pirates who will hold out for quality even for weekly releases. I'm one of those. I only use HS if subs are substantially delayed or if there really are no other subs.
An exception is during the first few weeks of the new season, where I download every single release for a show to compare subs, including CR/HS (usually because they're way faster in week 1.
There will still be discussion 6 hours later.
There will still be discussion the next day.
There will still be discussion when a higher quality release is uploaded.
Some people just aren't in any rush to watch stuff or they just want something that looks better.
How do you think TV rips work? Like other anons have said, Tokyo MX is way worse than CR rips.
>I went through a couple girlfriends
>This is the group you gave $4000 to
Because CR/HS is like fast food, most people are too lazy to wait until they get home, and eat a wholesome meal.
So they knowingly eat shit just because it's fast and convenient.
Then there are the retards who think that the shit they eat is the best thing ever, with no other alternative.
>implying that jpg would harm the ability to see the difference.
Actually, the HS one was from Funi which has even worse video than CR. And I didn't fix the contrast in the HS image. Still way better than the fansub video. If it weren't for Funi hardsubs, they would have gone for a web rip instead of shitty Tokyo MX.
The old fansubs claimed that they were accurate and original. Ours are ripped from localized and Americanized sumulcasts. In our subs there will be no emotions except stiff awkwardness, inappropriate swearing, and self-abasement. Everything else we shall destroy. Everything.
We shall abolish the community. Our localizers and typesetters are at work upon it now. There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the rippers. There will be no love, except the love of our e-peen. There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a hopelessly slow rival. There will be no honorifics, no karaoke, no decent typesetting.
There will be no actual work, no enjoyment of the process of translating. All competing releases will be the same. But always — do not forget this, /a/nonymous — always there will be the intoxication of undeserved praise, constantly increasing and constantly being given. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of reading plebian comments, the satisfaction of knowing people are downloading OUR torrents. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a Crunchyroll script on every anime torrent — forever.
>Japan is catching on so I have no clue when they will be able to do the same with manga but it might happen soon.
Never going too happen, there's too much manga being published at a single point.
If manga get's centralized, it would potentially open up a completely new market and create thousands of jobs BECAUSE there are so many manga. Many Japanese and English speakers would have a viable and sustainable occupation. Not to mention jobs for those who are willing to typeset and clean/redraw unless Japan provides the manga without text.
COMIN' RIGHT AT YA
>ever being centralized
Haha no. There's 3 big manga publishing companies (Shueisha, Kodansha, and Shogakukan) constantly trying to outdo each other as well as a bunch of other smaller companies publishing other more niche series and adaptations. They also don't pay much to their most important employees (mangaka and assistants) so them pitching up to try something like CR for manga (notice how CR's manga selection is very small) wouldn't really work. It also doesn't help that said 3 big companies have their own English publishing companies that they go to or own normally. If the scanlation scene with its immense size can't handle even most of the currently published manga there's no way that companies that are trying to make money could without taking big risks.
The only group that subbed the best show last fall.
I actually blame HorribleSubs, not Crunchyroll.
People watching Crunchyroll won't download their anime anyways, but people watching HorribleSubs would have downloaded proper releases, had HorribleSubs not been faster.
Then, fansubbers seeing an inferior, but due to direct access slightly acceptable and much faster released product being downloaded in favour of their stuff makes them feel unneeded, when, in fact, they're still needed if you want high quality.
HorribleSubs want to destroy anime. They provide these free ripps to get ridd of competetion, and then when they've gotten ridd of them they'll bail. We'll be left with nothing.
Yes, absolutely. But generally any show Sentai licenses will be unfixably fucked on CR. See Akame, Isshuukan, NGNL, and Black Bullet (not sure if the last one is Sentai but it's terrible on CR either way).
You're new to this aren't you goy?
GG was the best of them. Because if it was a serious they actually liked they had good subs, and if it was generic shit they made troll subs and made all the shit eaters on /a/ mad.
CR rips have horrible quality, no typesetting whatsoever and not the best translation around (though it got a lot better and is the least of my concerns).
Its always sad to see good groups go. I hope we'll not lose EveTaku and other quality groups go the same way.
Serious question so if you have an answer, please, I'd like to hear it:
Why didn't fansubbers ever switch to just releasing subtitle scripts (.srt/.ass/.sub)? That way they could be used with whatever video file a person already had and they could be worked on in leisure. I mean, I go after the first release I can get my hands on like most people but I also keep & collect my anime so I would definitely be for snagging a quality script when it became available to be used as the default sub.
Okay. Cause last year I watched most of Brotherhood on Netflix and found it to be pretty aight. I recently watched Death Note and didn't really find any issues with the subs. Only a few times did the typesetting bother me, which is rather impressive.
I appreciate that Netflix is trying to breathe some competition into the market. Good on them.
>needing frame accurate subtitles for anime where mouth movements don't match up anyway
Anime timers are autistic in making sure their lines change exactly when the frame changes, but most people wouldn't notice.
It could be something as simple as a rip having a second or two of extra nothingness at the beginning, which would throw off the subs by 1-2 seconds. Which is very noticeable.
Right, but in anime you literally can't notice off-sync by a few frames, due to lip movements not being accurate in the first place.
Other than signs hanging around too long, etc.
Or a super random funny commercial
>There has been steady progress with those shows and we will be focusing on whatever we have left. You can expect a couple of releases this season so be sure to check back every so often!
They're not picking up anything new but they are working on old stuff. They could easily pick up new stuff next season.
I actually cannot fucking believe that every fansub group I used to watch back in the day is dead now.
Holy fucking shit.
>not having an actual anime as your desktop at all times
Thank you, and thanks to everyone who replied off their comments.
Lame that it's because of timing. That's an easy fix in notepad or any subtitle program if a person wasn't too lazy to figure it out themselves.
>Random commercial fun.
It was obviously coming when CR started picking up steam.
Honestly, I don't care. We all get releases faster than any subgroup could put out in the past, and the quality is average. I wish manga scanlations were half as good.
Time an episode correctly (hell, use the post-processor), then go watch a HS and CR release. You'll never be able to unsee all the scene bleeds and lack of lead-in.
And you're the vocal minority. In fact, the age of CR is good since we can get good subs within hours after it airs in Japan. People here on /a/ are just attached to popular names like Commie, UTW, Underwater, etc. that they're mad when they disband.
Fansubbing is dying because
>m-muh wasted effort
No one is stopping fagsub groups to release CR edits, nor can CR stop them.
BD rips won't die since there's demand for them unlike fansubs.
The problem is that a majority, as in over 1/2 is attributed to CR and over 1/4 of them are exclusive to it. It's still not would be considered a standard to most anime steaming sites that are legal.
Put it this way. Microsoft Windows is the most widely used distro in the world, at around 87% of desktop users worldwide. Do you know what the second most popular distro is? Pirated Windows.
It's not too out there to say CR likes having HS out there for similar reasons.
The only problem with HS is with Funi rips. Even player deband will not remove the eyecancer. I wonder what kind of magic Funi is using to make their encodes shit.
I haven't seen this before, thanks.
I timed for j-drama earlier in the year so I at least know how to operate Aegisub for SRT's limited-quality subs but tips & tricks I do not know.
>linking images on an imageboard
You're doing this on purpose aren't you?
>In fact, the age of CR is good since we can get good subs within hours after it airs in Japan.
This is one thing I certainly can't complain about nowadays. It's funny how people complain about having to wait more than half a day for fansubs. Not even a decade ago it'd be a day or so for raws alone, let alone fansubs and before that? Fuck going to the local Games Workshop to pick up VHS yellowsubs of that show you didn't really want to watch but had to because there was no real choice.
Anybody who watches anime in the current age is spoiled in that respect.
>FFF subs Jinsei
Anyone who watches cartoons is spoiled anyway and probably doesn't have a job.
I wish we actually had some statistics on this because I'd like to believe that most of us aren't actually NEETs or hikikomoris. I know at least 15 people from /a/ that I regularly talk to via email or Skype and none of them fit the generalization, me included.
The rest of you are the same... r-right...? You guys have jobs or go to Universtity... r-right...?
let's face it, in a couple of years most anime would probably be cr simucast anyway. No one can stop the anime subbing take over. The real question is whether or not /a/'s autism would be enough to create, or push for an actual fansub
They wouldn't have the capital. You'd get new stuff about as often as a Robotech movie comes out, and it will look just as good. Anime only works the way it does because otaku buy expensive discs.
You seemed to miss my point. Yes, they don't buy BDs, but they're also usually the ones encoding the BDs for BD releases. If fansubbing dies, who's going to care to encode BDs?
I really don't want to be dependent on Bloatgirls and Final8 for all of my BDs and have them stall them for months on end.
The BDs only cost 100-300 at a time anyway. They're larger spurts than any other medium but still small spurts. I could see a big corporate entity paying for anime at the same price it costs more, and trying to sell it to normalfags and college kids who are bored of reality TV and Game of Thrones 3: Break Bad Harder all the time.
It's not my fault I can have a life, keep up with every anime season, read manga, read LNs, and help scanlate all at the same time.
How the heck do you people sustain yourselves?
It's relevant in the sense that it's statistical knowledge on what type of people browse said board.
The kinds of utter retards that actually want to talk to tripfags or make friends on an anonymous imageboard are a massive misrepresentation of the userbase.
To put it simply, morons like you and the people you know are disgusting casuals who wandered onto this site by mistake.
If I wanted to be praised for being better than you I would have said so in the first place. I'm genuinely interested and if I posted anonymously in the first place you people wouldn't be raising the same amount of hell as you are right now. I don't see myself as being better or worse than anyone, isn't it normal to want to know about the people you spend every day with, especially people who enjoy the same things you do? I see /a/ as my home.
That's exactly what I was talking about. Replacing the niche hobby business model with a mass appeal one to jap normalfags and american hipsters. It would kill /a/, but if BD sales ever decline the anime industry wouldn't have a choice.
No shit sherlock. I've always been wondering how subgroups came to be, I really can't thank you enough for clearing that up for me.
I dunno, anime costs like $1.5m a season, and it's financed by publishers or other companies with a ton of capital and other assets. FUNi's dabbled in some co-pro shit, and I just hope it never happens often because it always turns out to be try-hard appeal to Americans garbage. Anime's fascinating because it happens organically from a Jap way of thinking.
The concept of anonymity is that you shouldn't know or care about who are the people you're talking to, you retard. Fuck off to MAL or reddit if you want to see their profiles.
neets are society's waste products, anon
Honestly, your MAL means jack shit. I know a guy who has completed ~650 on his list. He thinks that Naruto is a 10/10 GOAT, watches fujo pandering shows thinking they're 'alpha' and said something along the lines of "new anime is filled with faggy romance and singing idols, announcing old animes like this and Yamato 2199 makes me think that things are going back to the golden age." with regards to the new Macross announcement earlier this year.
He's never watched Macross.
>It's relevant in the sense that it's statistical knowledge on what type of people browse said board.
It's not anime or manga, so no, it's not relevant. I could post about my real life, but I don't. Want to know why? Because it has absolutely nothing to do with anime or manga, is shitposting and who honestly gives a fuck what somebody else on the Internet does with their time outside of common interest? Want to talk about your real life? We have boards for that, like >>>/soc/
You make it really easy for people to hate you.
I don't hate you... yet.
>He doesn't have a job to buy figurines
Kill yourself already
To be fair. I liked Space Dandy. But I agree that the niche market dying would kill anime as something interesting, I was framing that as a bad thing but wondering how possible it was.
My case is irrelevant, the point still stands.
How much anime have you watched then? How many manga have you read? How many LN have you read?
I'm not that new, I've been browsing 4chan since 2007.
My tripcode's function is there for you to be able to filter me, the fact that you people aren't doing it are illogical.
Funny how that way of thinking goes out the window when Summer comes along and people are called Summerfags despite not knowing if they really are or not.
It happens. It's mutually beneficial when people hate me because that means they filter me and don't see any more of my posts and likewise they won't respond to my posts anymore. Win-win situation in my opinion.
For the sake of conversation, I'll stop derailing the thread though since I already made my point.
Don't care if people tell me togo away if it means the people who don't want to see what I have to say or care about my opinion filters me.
A bit off topic but Video games are having the same problems, now before you start spouting off about /v/ I'm talking about Atlus which doesn't provide dual audio and NISA who does worse localizations than Commie. It's not as accessible as fansubbed anime as PS3 / 3DS emulation has a long while to go, you have to jump through hoops to get CFW working.
I just hate how options are often limited to Commie, HS or some stupid HEUHEUHEU tier subs. FFF is not that bad if they didn't take for ever. Then there is the issue of BDs, THORA isn't around as much anymore and CoalGirls isn't either, most people just mux them with shitty commie encodes.
The industry generates nearly 14b USD in sales per year. 100M venture capital is nothing. Neither is 200k * $8/month.
Pretty much. Mainstreaming would be the worst thing that could happen to anime. Everything that makes it somewhat different wouldn't exist any more because it'd have to have mass appeal.
>>For the sake of conversation, I'll stop derailing the thread though since I already made my point.
He says, while replying to 7 different people in the hopes that they'll all respond again.
STOP FUCKING REPLYING, YOU MORONS.
>tell people to stop replying
Yeah, even stuff was innocuous and sweet as Ah! My Goddess would have never surfaced in western comics. I cherish anime and manga because they allow the creators to just do whatever they want with so little constraint and overseeing.
I honestly don't give a shit about Watanabe I just liked the show, cozy as fuck.
I would have no interest in anime if it became kosher or sterilized. I like it cause it has fantasy settings, magic, dragons, space ships, lots of cute girls and sexual fanservice, basically being ruthlessly nerdy and not apologizing for it. My tastes apparently overlap with otakus 90%, so I hope they never stop buying anime and keep making weird shit.
>Nise BD will never be finished.
R-Raze at least go out with a bang and finish it please ;_;
>New tripfag posts in a thread
>furious buttrage and anger, thread completely derailed
>Lelouch posts in a thread

Someone doing something right.
>I cherish anime and manga because they allow the creators to just do whatever they want with so little constraint and overseeing.
Unfortunately Japan, the birthplace of our beloved medium is trying to censor it with laws that ban that sort of freedom. Can you imagine if anime originated in somewhere like America? We definitely wouldn't have nearly as much high quality series.
>lots of cute girls and sexual fanservice
I had that nutbladder tightening feeling whenever I saw anime in magazines when I was a kid. It immediately felt so different, even some as simple as a thumbnail advertising the Slayers OVA. I dislike when people say they're only into anime for the plots, I got into anime for all of the superficial reasons that felt so right, stories came later.
>but they try way too hard with their meme speak and such.
They'll probably tone down eventually.
It can't get much worse than when they tried to watermark their releases, right?
With Daiz killing TT, Doki will become even more irrelevant. All part of his final solution to anime fansubbing.
I usually like underwater, but I just have to say
Exterminatus was fucking awful and should have been fixed for the batch, but wasn't. Daiz is an unfunny faggot that is probably getting tired of subbing.
This conversation is hard to follow. Why do people jump in and say "I'm not (person you were responding to)?". It's the most annoying thing I see on 4chan. If he wasn't responding to you don't post.
I don't get why Commie still exists and is so huge if everyone hates them. They are like a corprorate entity or something, cause I have liked a lot of their releases and obviously they must have a lot of good people with them, but I don't get why they do stuff like the meme shit when all it does is make the people they are shouting out to hate them.
Be it a few, or several thousand anons, it still does not amount to mal users, leddit, users, tumblr users, bbt users, and the many other anime communities on the internet. What I'm getting at is that /a/ hating commie does not mean that everyone else does.
How is Nise shit taste? I thought loads of people from /a/ was waiting for them.
I don't see why people should care what they spend there money on, They're donating to them at there own risk plus UTW has been the best group for the past like 3 years.
>Why doesn't /a/ become more like /b/?
I don't get why people want to remove useful site features just because they're misused. Don't get me wrong, I hate most of the "justified" tripfags like Daiz, but that's my right. I don't think moot should rip trips out of the site and turn the other boards into a sterile /b/ clone. Trip hate should solely be something cultural, and when they blog about their personal life they should get banned then too, but don't fix what's not broken.
People complaining over tripfags are whiny bitches when they have 500 ways to filter/combat them yet they still complaining about "tripfags" ruining the board.
The people who usually derail a thread are the anons pointing out what this trip did/said and it escalates from that instead of ignoring it.
I will apologize for blogging but in my defense, I was overcome with curiosity though I know it was unnecessary so I'm sorry for that.
I'm still waiting as well... I asked Daiz around the time he came back from his hiatus and he said it's being worked on but stalled somewhere. Unfortunate.
If I make an embarrassing post half way up a thread, I don't want my options to be get a new IP or wait til the next thread. I expect anonymous to mean anonymous, not "anonymous, but wait til the next general".
I'm a Lelouch otaku. Did you know your main boards besides /a/ are /vg/ and /sp/? Another surprising fact, the first time you ever got told to fuck off for being a tripfag was your second post on /a/.
I only use /a/, Haven't been to /sp/ in ages and only lurk /vg/, I don't really care for people teling me to fuck off like its going to make stop coming here. I'd rather you ignore my post then post some off topic comment because you dislike myself or my comment.
/a/ has been scapegoating tripfags for /a/ being "shit" for too long.
The whole point of being anonymous is if you shitpost or make a dumb post, it doesn't have to stay hanging over your head forever. Have you ever listened to moot's interviews/speeches? Its one of the reasons he gives for the advantages of anonymous posting.
That definitely applies to single threads too if you make all the posts connected by an ID. I don't want a personality to show at all unless I choose to. If it's not broke, don't fix it.
HS/CR are fine. It actually feels more legit to watch releases from them since they're "official".
As for anime that won't be subbed by CR, I'm sure there are always gonna be another fansubbers who's gonna work on them.
Why don't you just fucking block tripfags? It's not that hard. Sometimes I think people who give attention to tripfags are the real shitposters who wants to derail threads.
I don't block them but I don't pay attention to their trip. I pay attention on the content of their post.
