Chihayafuru and Persona 4 and Words about Horizon

Persona 4 1

Chihayafuru 1

Featuring completely TLCed poems etc.

At Commie, while we don’t give a shit about what other people are subbing, we do somewhat care about the shit that’s not getting properly subbed.

Re: Horizon’s script being sub-par

We actually didn’t use TAN’s script in its entirety, as most people were led to believe. When the show aired on Saturday, we had no idea how good it would be when it streamed 3 days later. Thus, our script was frankensteined together with multiple translators’ translations, the editor’s best guesses, and when TAN’s stream came out, their translations for the parts that made no sense after the ridiculous amount of time the editor spent over three days on the script. In the end, the script might have ended up worse in translation accuracy than the official stream, but all in all it did flow. Beginning next week we will use wholly the official script, now that we know the simulcast has a decent translation.

Apologies for the few mistranslated lines. You should blame it on how the script was put together, not the editing. This was a new editor’s first script, so he should at least get a cookie (to go along with his English degree).

Oh, and it’ll be fixed in the batch. lol batch

    It’s all appreciated man, keep up the good work.

    You’ve all got many shows to do this Autumn, I hope none are dropped; If so, I can totally understand.

    Again thanks.

    Too fucking awesome! Thanks for Chihayafuru and Persona 4!


  12. GM_Rusaku says:

    In persona 4 in 18:49 instead of
    “I am Bear”
    You can just use his Jpn ver or Atlus ver name.
    “I am Kuma” or “I am Teddy”

    • RHExcelion says:

      I think we’re going with Teddie in the future. He hasn’t had a proper introduction yet, and Kuma is the generic word for bear, so the characters just heard him describing himself as a bear.

      • brainchild says:

        This. I don’t remember the line exactly, but he didn’t actually introduce himself as “Teddie” yet. He just told the characters that “[he’s] a bear” because they were wondering what the hell he is. We’ll be using the official terminology supported by Atlus when he does make his formal debut.

        Also… THPOILERTHS: His name is Teddie?!

  13. niggers says:

    consider any dicks you own sucked for doing chihayafuru

  14. hurr says:

    Chihayafuru looks ugly, probably because of ugly transmision from the TV station. HorribleSub’s video looks better this time, but CR non TLC’d translation is no go.

    • RHExcelion says:

      ….no. It actually looks really decent. I suggest you update your playback for 10bit.

      • hurr says:

        No, that’s not it. Hi10p is my friend.
        It looks quite decent, but not as good as Commie’s releases usually do.
        There’s some ringing hell in the ending (and bad Hi10p decoding results in a rain of blocks, not ringing).
        Also as it looks somewhat blurry, and a little blocky here and there, when I get back to my PC I will make some screenshots.
        This time, and that’s quite rare, HS/CR version looks somewhat cleaner and sharper, so maybe the broadcasted ts wasn’t good.

  15. doomed says:

    damn im gonna be a loyal slave on this subbers… friggin awesome quality~

    \(^∀^)メ(^∀^)ノ oh yeah~

  16. Marina says:

    Thanks for the Persona 4!

  17. Johanna Chan says:

    question, are you going to complete Chihayafuru? Complete, as in, finished subbing it until the last episode?

  18. Arisato-kun says:

    Good job with Persona 4, I like how you guys stuck with the English dub things, like King Moron, the Junes theme, and Teddie’s bear jokes.

    One thing that felt a bit weird though, Nanako. I’m not sure how she spoke in the Japanese version of the game, but in the English dub, she called her Dad, well, Dad, not Daddy, and seemed a bit more mature than the lines you translated for her. Like “I have to use the potty” or whatever it was. Just saying, she seemed a bit more mature than that in the dub game.

    Great work otherwise though!

    • brainchild says:

      Those were TAN’s choices. But you’re right about her being much more mature in the game. Maybe I’ll change that stuff up, then.

  19. e says:

    Beary good!

    Q: I’m using MPC, and everything in the video looked great, except for 16:54-16:58. The part right after they fall into the television, where it zooms through the black and white rectangles like in the game. Instead of that, I see mostly white.


    Is there any way I can adjust the player settings to get this to display properly?


    • ubiquin1 says:

      I have this same problem with MPC too. A solution to this would very much be appreciated!

  20. frolday says:

    thanks for your explanation for Horizon.

  21. bob says:

    No hard feeling. You monster!

  22. Kyouka says:

    Are u guys still doing
    Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
    sorry for asking

  23. 8thSin says:

    Shit happens, but your TL situation doesn’t look good =_=;

    Anyway, this release looks pretty good so far, and I’m glad I won’t have to look up the dictionary/guide every time they sing a verse.

  24. Hollowbear says:

    Fucking Maria WHERE!?

  25. dopenhagen says:

    Yay Chihayafuru! May as well check out Persona, too. Thanks!

  26. nINJAkECIL says:

    Please don’t drop Chihaya furu.
    I like the show from the git-go.
    Oh, and this.


  27. r3 says:

    Thanks for the explanation on Horizon, now it makes a lot more sense.

    Now let’s go watch P4.

  28. Kuma says:

    It seems you are in a… grizzly situation.

  29. MacKnight says:

    For some reason, even with K-Lite codecs, i cant play Persona 4 in Windows Media player 11.
    Whats wrong here?
    (Works in other players).

  30. KumaKaori says:

    p4 note: knowledge, expression and understanding all need to be rotated clockwise, for the status eyecatch.

  31. Mussels says:

    in persona 4, why does everyone have yellow chins? its like half their face is the wrong color (and this aint just a problem with commies release, dokis has it too)

    anyone know whats up there?

  32. P4_FAN says:

    thanks for the release,
    btw,just a noob question…
    i don’t see those multiple rings thingy when they enter into the TV…
    something like this:
    it’s a P4 trademark in the game and its kinda bit bland not seeing it on anime…

    other group has it though,
    i think its horriblesubs…
    they have a nice copy of the raws…
    i hope commie consider this… thanks… :)
