Not surprisingly, the product placements have been removed from the Code Geass US broadcast run. Wonder how they'll handle the coupon cards and the blowup Cheese-kun.

And what of the Yuri sisters? Will their thick crusts with extra sauce also be sliced?

Speaking of, watched the OVAs over the weekend, which really add up as a third season if you account for the run time between them all. Fourth season is said to be coming in July. Out of the thirty-three light novels released so far, the last dozen have apparently been treading water, with Sachiko still not graduated.

:doit: J-j-jam it in already, Yumi.

It's possible.

We’re working very hard to meet an extremely tight deadline to get it ready for TV broadcast so let’s hope that the deal goes through.

While Tower of Druaga has yet to top its fifth episode (episode eight came close), but it still adds another positive check mark to Director Koichi Chigira's (Full Metal Panic, Last Exile) career.

If only every episode could be a :trap: episode.

Video editorial on the current state of subtitles in the fan community.

And a rebuffer / rebuttal. Animation does hold a value that makes these text orgies more bearable, but the worst sin of sub projects not mentioned here has to be unintelligible fonts. Way to shoot yourself in the e-peen there, Samurai-X-Jr-sama-san-chan.

Good watch. I disagree on some finer points, but in general its right on. Funny thing i sI just recently watched some stuff with sub groups name worked into the titles and I thought it was a little.... strange. I dunno how new that is since I barely watch anything, but it's not important.

I do think theres some things where it's better to use some japanese. Honorifics can come and go based on the series (If I was watching something in Japan, I'd prefer them, but got pissed when I saw them used in a Berserk fan sub). My only other disagreement is in the area of words that are 'terminology'. For example he pointed to Shinigami, but even both dubs of Bleach and Death Note use the term.

The only other disagreement would be on some cultural notes. I haven't watched Lucky Star, but from what I heard, without the notes there would be next to no way to get whats going on. Theres only a few shows like that and those audiences want to be able to understand things (since only super weeaboo fags watch Lucky Star).

The general message and most of the points are pretty much right on. Also, stupid fuckers need to stop using ugly ass, difficult to read fonts -- or glaringly colorful fonts. This is why soft subs are so much better.

Nobody is allowed to complain about ugly, impossible to read fonts unless they watched Fushigi Yuugi fansubs back in the day.

Honorifics never really bugged me all that much, at least when they're somewhat subtle about it, but I've since become entirely ready to wait upwards of half a year for a decent dub to hit the webterweb. Actioney stuff like Gurren Lagann and Black Lagoon have enough happening on-screen without me having to focus my attention at the bottom of the screen every three/four seconds.

Being an unusually socially inept troglodyte, the honorifics are a shorthand that I appreciate in filling in the relationship between characters. Tho' when stuff is dubbed it freaks me out like nothing else. Though, even the best dub is going to have one lack-luster voice actor. However, if it's in japanese, I can't understand it enough to really mind how bad it might be. Ignorance is bliss!

Generally, my opinions skew towards that of the "rebuttal" excepting that I also kind of enjoy messy openings for some shows on their own merits. A few are done really well, and at the very least, don't detract from the experience. Then again, I tend to watch somewhat bombastic (and stupid) children's cartoons, so that kind of sophistry generally fits.
