If you're only doing subtitles then please get it right

Postby Tsukiko » Mon Nov 29, 2010 11:13 pm

I know I'm nit picking, and I know most people probably don't even care, but there are a few typos in this release.

Please look closer when QC'ing. Just because you got nice packaging, and a cool artbook doesn't mean you can skimp on your subtitle QC. There are fans that want a quality product, and when you half-ass It we're just gonna go somewhere else.

Can I have an example or two?

If you knew that most people don't care then why did you bother posting your complaint? And if most people don't care then who exactly is going elsewhere? You? And where exactly are you going? NISA is the only one releasing this product. Are you talking about another retailer? You could probably purchase it somewhere other than NISA's online store, but it'll be the same horribly flawed version you have now. So why bother?!

Sarcasm aside, I don't think anyone can consider a few typos to be half-assed. In case you haven't noticed NISA is just a company, a company operated by people--humans expected to make error.

Freezing, crashing, burning, world destroying DVDs--those sound like issues to report. But a mere typo? What if Lyner here made a typo in his post, would you chew him out for that too?

I think I've made my point pretty clear.

Well, since I was one of the folks who worked on it, I just wanted to check it myself in the raw files. We had myself, the coordinator, and two separate QC'ers watch it two separate times on multiple DVD players. Whatever got through avoided several pairs of eyes.

As long as the mistakes are kept to a minimum I don't really see it is as much of a problem.

Still, giving the guy a chance to provide examples so I don't assume it's just someone trying to spread negativity for no reason. Plus it'll give us specific things to pay extra attention to in the future.

Aaaand I gave it a week, no examples, no proof. Especially when reviews aren't mentioning such things...

So, that's that.

That's not something nice to say, even if you're cheering for Lyner.

Well I though it was pretty funny Ryo. Plus, OP hasn't logged on since posting their "complaint".

So, that's that.


I gotta say THANKS for such a stellar piece of work! I absolutely love this series and all the NIS anime so far that I have bought! I've pre-ordered one of the new ones already and will continue to support you guys as best I can! Again, Bravo Lyner!
