Searz, honestly this is just funny now. You won't accept that you're wrong and have started to place yourself higher than everyone else

Quoted:
Also, one thing to note on that most people pick gg's translations is that most people are worse than me at English


You're doing this immediately after telling me that I shouldn't make my self seem better than everyone else

Quoted:
Saying "confirm" makes it sound like you think of yourself as better than other people. Say something like "I found it quite enjoyable." instead.



You should probably drop your pride and accept what others are telling you. And since this page was linked (thank you astrolia). I shall enlighten you once again:

Quoted:
I think there are some take away messages here.

1. Coalgirls cannot bother to do a little research and thinking.
2. qIIq should start subbing in his own native tongue.
3. Thora should be more careful about choosing subs.
4. gg is actually pretty good.
5. People don’t actually give a **** about the quality of subs. Following from that, people don’t seem to give a **** about what the characters are saying on screen. Otherwise, there’s no way in hell Coalgirls and qIIq could get away with their subs. This isn’t even about translation “accuracy,” it’s about using half-decent English.


And finally i'll post some of the comments to further get the point across:

Quoted:

I was just watching (again) Bakemonogatari but in HD with the coalgirls version.
The (10) first time(s) I watched this show was with french subs, my native language and the dialogue was spot on. I got the Coalgirls version to watch Bakemonogatari with good image quality and… wow !
This really IS a ****ty translation!
Bad enough for me to google about it and find your blog sir. And that show is ALL about the dialogue, it’s just a crime.
Thank you for pointing out that a good translation does matter.


Quoted:
Oh god, I’m in the exact same state. I’d first watched this show streamed with ANIME-DS, which uses gg subs, and I’ve also read the novels in baka-tsuki. I dl’d the Coalgirls’ 720p version for archiving, and stumbled on the “amateurish virginity” line.
My next step: Google with those words. Surely SOMEBODY other than me had noticed this!
And hear you are.
Coalgirls is ****TY. ****TY ****TY ****TY ****TY ****TY!!!!



In short Searz, you are ****ing wrong. Get over it and move on.

I had no idea american/english fansub groups were bad, I watch anime with french subs and they are all very accurate, they manage to translate japanese puns and innuendos in a way that they become "french puns" if you know what I mean.

Nope, it's still sad. It's been sad since your first or second comment and has since stayed that way.

You fail to grasp my main point time and time again. It's quite amazing really.
My point isn't and never was that Coalgirls is good, it's that your lists are stupid. And those lists very much are.
Quoted:
You're doing this [(calling yourself better than most at English)] immediately after telling me that I shouldn't make my self seem better than everyone else

I make a modest claim of saying that my English skills are better than most. My skills in the English language should be fairly obvious from simply looking at my comments, especially when I'm being a grammar Nazi.
Your skill in critique on the other hand has been judged by most as sub-par, making such a statement quite silly, even if it wasn't intended.
Quoted:
You should probably drop your pride and accept what others are telling you.

You seem to be making the mistake of seeing me as prideful. There's a difference between properly formulating an answer with many points of data all showing evidence of the same thing and drawing blanket statements out of your *** with no more than a single example to prove the point.
Quoted:
I shall enlighten you once again

Lol, you enlighten me. That's rich XD
Quoted:

I'd love to see another example, one that isn't repeated in most comments.

And I made a perfectly modest statement in confirming Tamako Market's ability to entertain the viewer.

Look, if you think my lists are bad, let's see your lists. See if they are any better. All you do is say my 'lists' are bad and you never really prove your intelligence on said topic. All you do is antagonize me. Why don't you prove that what you're saying is worth listening to and give your opinion for once, instead of ridiculing others for their's.


Ill also say that I don't really care about what you "really mean"
Saying something like this:

Quoted:
Also, one thing to note on that most people pick gg's translations is that most people are worse than me at English :P


Isn't modest, it just proves your lack of ability admit and accept things, as well as the fact that you are proud. Any one who says that is proud, and you're in denial if you say you aren't.


Oh one more thing, your sense of "grammar and how well sentences are built"
Must be diluted because Coalgirls' version was not up to par on either of those
Ill show you the quote again

Quoted:
5. People don’t actually give a **** about the quality of subs. Following from that, people don’t seem to give a **** about what the characters are saying on screen.

Your English is half decent, Congratulations.

besides all the 100% unnecssary pantyshots I found it rather nice to read, ending was kinda meh but not that bad, and well kinda "deus ex machina" or how ever you call it again, but nontheless quite good.

also read ares - it's awesome :P

reading all kinds of manwhas nowadays, for some reason I like them way more prolly cuz most of them are colored.
magician, crepuscule, noblesse, ToG, GoH etc.

i find it rather sad that this tread has been monopolized by a childish discussion between Searz and Cuddworms.

You should begin sentences with a capital letter young one.

It was a joke -_-

***uptions isn't a word
I also don't understand how telling you to begin sentences with a capital letter could be labeled as an assumption.

Although I don't mind the english corrections since they arevery instructive, this thread is slowly turning from an anime/manga thread to an english class thread :/
