Another one bites the dust. RIP fansubbing.
Maybe people wouldn't be as thankless as they are if you subbed shows that actually needed subbing since no one else is subbing them?
If you're just going to sub shows you like for your own amusement without caring whether or not other people are subbing them, you don't get to complain how you're doing a favor to the greater online anime community in the West and get nothing from it.
Don't worry, HorribleSubs will save fansubbing.
This. As a translator on exhentai I explicitly take only works that I like myself, knowing that doing something on commissions or because "it's mainstream" would end up with a half assed work.
If you're doing something for free it should be something you like doing, for your own amusement. It's the only way you can ensure a certain level of passion and therefore quality.
Feel free to sub whatever you want and do it primarily for your own enjoyment. It's your time, your effort, no one has any right to tell you what to do unless they're paying you for it.
But if you're going to care primarily about yourself and your interests, don't pretend like you're some poor misunderstood victim who is only trying to help everyone out and ends up bullied by ungrateful nerds on the internet.
I dont even know who these guys are.
But I agree that fansubbers get to much shit.
People take good subs as granted and bitch about bad subs. People should be at least a little more thankful.
I don't care. Look at it how you prefer but watching anime now is the easiest thing possible and we even get subs in a day at maximum without any added drama shit.
If you want to go back to the good old day of penises cumming on subs for karaoke effects please do it. Back to the glorious days of TL notes, I sure miss them.
