Tons of fansub group sprouting like crazy these days, i just want to know your opinion about which fansub you like the most to translate your favorite anime, well there's so many to choose, to avoid further confusion, i think i'll just post something here..

*I kind of want to watch Maken-ki recently, and since the BDs already out in Japan, i think there will be someone who willingly translate it for us. They said Kira-fansub will have its own Maken ki BD, but this Final8 fansub released Maken-ki already, i don't know about this fansub so if you knew something about the quality or something, please share here.

okay if we accidentally talk about anime, please don't leak any spoiler okay, judge anime by good or bad, it's just out there there must certain someone who doesn't really enjoy being spoiled.. :D
Thanks for the help.

Doki did nice for most of the anime they did, well and i completely am trusting them for most of my anime source, wait a minute, Tomoyo After, it is an Eroge right?

I use Commie Subs, Doki, GotWoot, and Hadena
I use a few since I'm watching different kinds of anime, but these are the ones I mainly use besides HorribleSubs which doesn't count since they just use Crunchyroll rips which I prefer to avoid since they don't do the opening and ending themes.

well i saw some people who is avoiding using some fansub, since fansub has their own way on doing an anime, and several fans don't like, it's like choosing shop i think, we don't want to buy a certain bread in a certain shop, yet some people don't care where they buy their bread.. something like that

Yup, normally they translate anime, but they are translating the eroge Tomoyo After aswell, since it has been dropped already by other translation groups.

For your information, Horriblesubs doesn't translate Anime.
They get the Crunchyroll Release, change the font, and then release it on their page, to piss them off.
You can even find that information on their page.

But I don't really mind who does it as long as it's done well enough... unlike Hadena >.>

I will watch most any fansub group as long as their raw isn't from something like Animenetwork, PP, or some other half assed Raw... Since I am living in the US now (... yeah... the US...) I can no longer turn on the Television to watch it as it airs...

As for what I recommend? I prefer Mazui, Hadena, Coalgirls and Commie. Best quality, encodes and fonts.

Well...I'm ok with almost any...but I do like that they don't use too flashy letters or super goth fonts (I got poor vision...) I also like that they stay loyal to what the anime is really saying and don't change it to get it easy or in other cases changing the "onii-chan" for "big bro/brother"...I don't like that xD

And as for the ones that I like, I'm sure nobody here knows them, because those are fansubs in spanish but...meh: Wing Zero, Supremo, Kurotsuki and Athena no Seito :o

I like Doki, but they're so slow recently, I can't really use them for anything but BD releases. They keep dropping shows too. HorribleSubs are super-fast, so I use them for a lot of shows, but often replace shows subbed by them when BDs come out, or a better group finishes a batch. I wait for a lot of shows to finish airing so I can watch them all at once and with good subs; sometimes I wait until BDs come out for the extra episodes. Other groups I like are Commie, UTW, GotWoot, and Eclipse.

I prefer it when they use honorifics (-san, -chan, -kun, etc.) and things like Onii-chan because it really does make a difference in the way things come across and can show what kind of relationship they have.

I took Spanish in high school and sometimes the only subs I can find are Spanish, so I watch them and use my limited knowledge of Japanese together with limited knowledge of Spanish to figure out what's going on. But only when I can't find English subs, which happens a lot with older/less popular series with no seeders for the torrents, and dead links for English subbed versions.

ah yeah, eclipse. They are the one who did Ookami san to sichinin nakamatachi, wonderful show

lol yeah, they did most of the mainstream animes out there, and mainstream is a must watch, since tons of them are interesting.


Subdesu and Commie are the only group I remember, I dont pay no attention to whoever sub it, I just watch animes, though I thank them and they have my support and respect

lol of course me too, but wait, i really do pay attention, i was confused whether to pick Thora's, Coalgirl's, or Doki's Fate Stay Night Back then, and i picked Doki's because it has the opening translated :cool:

Doki, CoalGirls

wait a minute, googling.. don't know about gg :cool:

lol i don't speak spanish and that's why i don't even know what kind of fansub they are, ah.. about that Oniichan thingy or kun san and so on.. i agree with that, super agree i mean, their way of talking sure show how is their relationship. So if the anime were harems, well.. we can guess who is the real heroine :D or who'll get sad in the end :(

That's the right attitude to have for fansubs. Or anything else that's free. If you didn't pay for it, you can't complain about the quality.

There are some that are particularly bad, though. But even with those, you don't have to use them, but you don't have to complain either. You can always offer to help if you want to make them better.

Yeah

Yeah, it's hard to get the right balance between literal and readable.

For me, Horrible doesn't have that balance, but everyone has different tastes and opinions. It's not my right to judge, and I'm not trying to. I just wanted to share my opinion as well. I'm glad these forums haven't become a place where you can't share an opinion without starting a flame war. :)

EDIT:
Also, I don't by any means think Horrible is bad (that sounds a little weird, since they're called Horrible). I use them a lot for things that don't have a better group subbing them, or when the better group is slow and I want to watch it as soon as possible. The one thing that nobody can say Horrible doesn't have is speed.

Any particular reasons Desi? I was worried the first time gg came out, got some from them but so far so good, guess i am just lucky. As for Commie, i can't really remember but i guess they are pretty much all right.
