Let me clarify my stand on this… this… DRAMA.
Mendoi (or MenClave, as they like to call themselves), are accusing me of attacking them.
Let me make it clear, to anyone who is involved, or cares, or wants to see me get ripped to shreds by an elitist self-centered prick and his legions of mindless fans, while I may have trod on some toes by accident, I do not have any intentions to harm Mendoi (or MenClave). I did not mean to harm anyone’s reputation but DarkMirage’s. If I did so I sincerely apologize.
I respect all sub groups, irregardless of translation quality, video quality, or whatever arbitrary standard you compare them to, for it is them who exploit loopholes in their respective countries’ law and the Berne Convention to do something the licensing companies sometimes fail to do: promote animé. While it’s a shame that it’s now degenerated into nothing but who’s got the most leechers and e-penis and drama instead of promoting Japanese cartoons, it’s life. No point complaining
And while we’re at it, yes, I get it, Nyoro~n can’t translate their way out of a paper bag, have mediocre encoders, etc. Let me get that out of the way first. All groups have their issues, and it takes a massive effort to realize that. It’ s a shame lolfang chose to ignore rather than to accede, but he’s got guts standing up for his work in the face of cold, hard evidence. He’s either very reckless or very stupid, and it’s most likely a combination of both. (I GET IT. NYORO~N SUCKS. I don’t need a friggen pdf to tell me that.)
Now to the crux of the matter.
The only one I am targeting is DarkMirage. It is he that I am calling out for for being a self-centered faggot, not MenClave. In fact, MenClave, while they think he is right about attacking another sub group with the raw facts, and in fact even support such a disgusting effort to undermine the peace (not like there’s any, LOL), the fact is, we don’ t know why DarkMirage did that post, and what are his intentions.
And it does seem that he is not ashamed to use the same detestable tactics ODEX uses, setting himself up as the hero for his cause. The point is, there are better ways to do that. Bring it up in their forum or blog, for instance. Why would anyone currently involved with a sub group pull such a spectacle like this is beyond me. Just because you have a spankin’ JLPT1 does not give YOU the right to act like some sort of arrogant braggart, nor does it give you the right to flame sub groups for sub-par work in your own blog. That is why blogs have a comment field, DarkMirage. It’s for YOU to tell them how much they rock/suck/desu/whatever.
As far as I’m concerned, DarkMirage is no friend to Japanese otaku culture. He’s no better than the self-serving politicians in America. Don’t direct your hate at MenClave, direct all your hate towards the person who started this sorry mess. MenClave areunfortunately victims of this sorry mess, and while they might support DarkMirage, the thing is, they’re not to blame for standing up for their fellow member.
Remember folks, MenClave are not to blame, DarkMirage is. I am ashamed to be even in the same country as him.
