Having to wait a week for another episode.

With gg, Lunar, and now Chihiro joining the ranks of fansubbers working on Macross Frontier, I was wondering what people's opinions were on their releases.

GG is quite good and prides themselves on no-bullshit, reasonably fast, quality releases.

I like Shinsen the most for this good balance in speed and qaulity..least they were *annoyed with the last few releases*.

lunar and GG are ok, how is Chihiros work on M-F?

i would avoid chihiro..... because they only sub it just so that they can say they beat gg even if it means crap

Hi, I'm new to anime and started watching this series on advice from friends. Is there a difference between the subs? I realize when translating a foreign language you can't do a straight world to word translation because you will lose the context and meaning. So which sub would you say does the best job?


Would asking a question about episode 9 be considered a spoiler?

Just to be on the safe side.

We have a ep 9 discussion stickied up top you can join in .

As far as the different subs, I personally like Gattai now. GG is good for a fast sub. Avoid chihiro. I watched their ep 9 and i was really confused. GG made a lot more sense.

I've seen AIA but i just don't like the sub font they use, but the quality is decent. Never watched orihihc.

Some people swear by the AnimeOne & Gekkostate & Menclave sub, though i've never seen it.

For sub groups, I'd say:

Chihiro - Just did a release to outdo gg really.

gg - Nice and fast, but the resolution of the video is low (I like my HD releases), but having nice subs and kareoke, both of which are softsubbed is nice.

Gattai - Decent, readable subs, everything is softsubbed and HD, which is good. They also do Zentraedi subtitles...

AGM - Good, seem a little to swear happy at times, good HD quality again. Shame about hardsubbed kareoke though

AiA - Hardsubbed at SD, which is okay, at least the container allows for decent quality

Shinsen - They do .avi releases. I'm not a big fan of avi files nowadays, unless there's no choice. Which, with Macross Frontier, we have plenty.

A mix between Aone, Gattai and gg would be fantastic. Or even just gg and Gattai since the two groups seem somewhat close.

I'm travelling around the country for 1 week, then I'll be staying in Tokyo for the second and 2 days.

I intend on getting around as many places as I possibly can, but out of anime interest and just to absorb the culture. It'd be a waste if I only came for one thing

You forgot Lunar. They're providing a H264-HD and a SD avi. The translation is not bad, every song gets a nice Karaoke, although the guys are not among the faster people .
Chihiro is acceptable, if you can't wait the 8-10 hours until gg releases any more and really really need a sub.

I haven't actually given any of Lunar's releases a try.

I might do, just to see what the fuss is about with them geting back into subbing.

Just noticed that chihiro just released another sub for episode 9, I wonder what the difference is.

so what's the deal with Gattai? i read on that they're done speed subbing, but does that mean they're totally stopped subbing or are they doing slower more quality subs now?

probably to a crawl like shinsen-subs, as far as I can tel shinsen-subs. is doing fine and is mostly current on their projects,was worried some of the staff got sick it happens now and then and the projects can be deleyed or canceled.

Not really sure abotu Gattai tho but it seems to be slwoed.
