When i compare these new anime realeases to those older ones i have watched i feel dissapointed, most of them feels medicore although some turns out to be good, wish they could be a little more creative like Soul Eater, that anime was really one of the most creative i have ever watched.

Bah, more series that'll have HorribleSubs releases and won't be hosted at my favorite DDL site. If the episodes were at least available in my country...

Kinda lame, I must say

On the upside, it won't be 360p on Crunchyroll, so I'm tentatively happy.


It should be noted that NicoNico has a week exclusivity of each one. For example, R-15 doesn't air until the 15th on CR, compared to the 8th on NN.

The dark rabbit one is the one I am really interested in.

All 3 of Crunchys announcements are shows from other sites... NicoNico for IsuTenma/Dantalian, and Hulu for Sacred Seven (and its a 6 day delayed release)

Kinda lame, I must say

To those discussing gg and doki earlier:

Do you prefer
a) localized subs, but extremely accurate translations (with a chance of trollsubs, but that trollsub being blatantly obvious and only on shitty shows)
or
b) not localized subs, but shit accuracy and sometimes translations that get the entire meaning wrong

For me, overall accuracy is more important than localization, so I will roll with gg, but avoid Doki like the plague unless I know for sure it's one of their more competent translators.

Jul 7, 2011 10:12 AM by peix

Natsume, Kamisama Dolls, and Usagi Drop seem like good additions. I'm sure people will like the other ones as well though.

No Ro-Kyu-Bu anywhere, wasn't it just licensed, at least have it available for the US at least since we are going to get it.

Jul 7, 2011 8:27 AM by Hoppy

eh... I can't see my country nor my neighbor country on the list >.>"
and now even my country start banning major download site really makes me sad

WHERE is MayoChiki !!!!!!><

Jul 7, 2011 7:15 AM by MorningGlory

Oh, at least Usagi Drop will be available for me. One of the few I was actually interested in, so good thing.

I will never understand why anime fans are so obsessed with having their English fansubs phrased like Japanese sentences. A good localisation flows well.

Localization is not sentence flow, that's just basic translation. Any translation can have good, smooth flow regardless of the degree of localization of cultural concepts, so that isn't actually my concern here.
You're thinking about Americanisation, something already discussed to death in another thread. Localisation refers to a translation that makes the script easily understandable for the intended audience. Americanisation is the changing of cultural concepts and/or visual imagery and/or pronouns to something that is more American (e.g. a rice ball becoming a donut).

Anyways, this isn't what this thread is about.

An Usagi Drop simulcast means I'm getting it sooner, so I'm completely delighted. So stoked to watch it.

I'll take relatively ok localisation and a potential trollsub episode over anything released by Doki.

You are why we can't have nice things. But then glancing at some of your posts defending Funimation of all companies, I'm realizing it would be pointless to continue this.
gg are usually quite obvious about their trollsubs being trollsubs. And there is nothing wrong with a good localisation. The reason you're watching a fansub is because you don't speak Japanese. I will never understand why anime fans are so obsessed with having their English fansubs phrased like Japanese sentences. A good localisation flows well.

Anyway, this is all completely off topic, and I'm sure a mod will be around soon enough to stop this.

I'm why we can have nice things. I actually support the fansub groups and licensing companies that do what they do well. When GG releases a shitty trollsub translation, that was their intended purpose. Doki unintentionally releases shitty translations.

huh...gg's subs are decent you know.

God I hope you're kidding. Localized crap + trollsubs, no thanks.
