Well, yeah, that's the initial thought that crossed my mind, but I swear I didn't catch anything like that... well, that's what I get for not using my headphones when watching a raw.

There are a few already finished shows in the current series section at the moment. Perhaps the mods will make new ones after moving those subforums to the old shows section.

Of course, this is just a guess on my part.

For me, the best LOL moment was when they ripped off "Active Heart," the Gunbuster OP at 12:30. It's almost frame-for-frame from the end of the OP

at 1:14

I hope they do more stuff like this. One of my favorites of last year was the "Touch" Haruhi episode about baseball.

You have to bring the content and translate it to another context. That means it should be adapted, while staying as close to the original meaning as possible (a full adaptation is something else, but the process is kind of similar). But yeah, if there isn't any "moe" in the usual speech of Americans, you should find some kind of equivalence for it in the context of an American dialog.
Normally I would agree with you, but ‘moe’ is a word every anime fan ought to know. It’s on the test.


Turning to the mixed response to Lucky☆Star, this is a rerun of what happened with To Heart, where the languid low key storyline charmed some of us but had others jumping up and down with frustration and preparing batches of vitriol to pour over any To Heart forum they found. Comparing the first episodes of each, To Heart has a more definite plot but in both cases the consequentiality of the story is equally prefixed by ‘in-’.


As for the Lucky☆Star OP, I think we need to start a rehab thread since I strongly suspect many people are replaying it in an endless loop and are probably forgetting to eat or sleep.


Finally, a.f.k fansubs—you know, I sometimes suspect this is a front for Kadokawa PR Dept, I mean how does (apparently) one guy have the resources to put out so many well translated fansubs, most of which are Kadokawa titles (Karin, Haruhi, and now this)? How could anyone even translate that OP without inside knowledge of the lyrics? (On second thoughts though, if a Japanese company had a hand in the subs they would definitely be in Engrish.... having seen some of their English language flyers, ‘well translated’ and ‘Kodokawa’ do not belong in the same dimension.) One negative point about a.f.k though, I think they recompress the audio, it is never as good as the raws or other groups’ audio, sometimes I have even ended up remuxing their AVIs with the audio stream from a raw because it grated when listening on headphones.

I'll stick SF's translation or any other group, though.
According to their website, SF (Sleeping Forest) have split up. Kinda sucks given that they only just started subbing anime. Their manga people are now to use the name kuu-scans.

That still leave JEEB though if you like softsubs.

Competition is good ... hoping to see a couple of other groups pick up the show just for comparison (hell, even Shuffle! had three big groups translating it).

... and yes, I play the OP far too often.... there's something about the way it moves from 'crazed beat poetry' to that lovely harmonic chorus

Bah, I'm gone a few days and the board explodes with several more pages for me to read...

Anyway, otaku references make me giddy. I think I will enjoy episode 2. If nothing else, this show would be a fun thing to play trivia with.

Fortunately, although they're separate, both the manga and anime are still being translated by their respective groups that split from SF.

I'm not sure they ever intended to do soft-subs except for the first speed-release, but I shall beg.

Well my last post was two days ago, and of the 150-odd posts since then, there's quite a few names and even new faces. I think we need a subforum simply because if the volume keeps up anything like this it's too hard for newcomers to sort through material.

Anyway, I think the joke in LuckyStar is more that if Kona-chan knows people online who are hikkikomori, then she's even more otaku than anyone suspected. ^^;;;
Explicit reference to .hack/SIGN at 16:51:
"I don't know the details, but his login info implies that he's been online the whole time."
Also, some of us already suspect that she's hardcore otaku. Fo' sho'!

I think you guys are just gutter-minded.
I see three, maybe four without even trying... maybe you're too innocent. Besides, how many people watch moe shows who *aren't* gutter-minded? It's not like it's worthy of note to find people like that here. Also, it's just Konata who's injecting the suggestiveness, as the otaku archetype naturally she's the perv too.

One man's attempt at dancing the OP. I must give him props for his effort at choreography and costume-changing. About the second half, it is a parody of an earlier video (a fairly disturbing one), so you can skip that.

KyoAni, Making Healthier Otakus Since 2005

Cheers.

Wait what's this about virus'? Is this strictly some dumb thing 2Chan has gone and done or has it leaked further than that?

I like the idea of the episode being more about Otakuism than the last one. More Tokasatsu endings. I'm very intrigued to see Kyoto Animation paying such tribute to something so clearly masculine (and ungodly cheesy). De Arimasu!

Wasn't there a discussion a while back about how the seiyuu for the Drama CD and the Anime were different for Lucky Star? Well apparently Konata shares you guys pain in that regard

That video... Is disturbing in so many ways.
I pulled a few hairs out of my head when he changed into the uniform. "OH GOD WHAT IS HE DOING?!" u_u
I've been waiting to see a parody of Lucky☆Star but... Not like that!
