Censorship and fansubs: What the subbers don’t want you to know (Part 2 of 2 on censorship)

November 13, 2007 at 8:00 am 16 comments


Basically, here’s the thing.

Fansubbers today are nothing but egoistical bastards who care only for their supposed ‘status’, aka, how many people grab their stuff each time it is released. In order to secure this supposed ‘status’, they will do whatever it takes, even to the point of starting internets drama and all that jazz. Yep, all for a bunch of numbers that mean absolutely nothing in the real world.

And when someone tells us that a certain fansub group is bad, well most of the time they are right, assuming you have a few unbiased sources. Unfortunately, this is an unintended form of censorship meant to secure their status as ‘protectors’ and ‘proponents of quality’. It’s all just a ploy to prop up their meaningless lives or in some cases, drive up hits so as to earn more cash from Google Adsense or summat. Never mind the fact they are making all that fuss over something that is free, technically illegal, and definitely not worth all the bluster over.

Stuff like h264 and mkv? Also an unintended form of censorship meant to ramp up stats. See, when something looks good, people wanna grab it, right? And so on and so forth.

And when I see someone complain about fansubs and the like, myself included, we’re not speaking out against the censorship and the like but in actual fact, are complaining about how slow subs are and whatnot.

Yes people, today’s fansubbers, at least a fair percentage of them, are nothing but fascist egoist attention whores. This is not a criticism about fansubbing, but it is a criticism about attitudes in fansubbing. I still hold fansubbers with a fair amount of respect, but sometimes, the truth must be told.

It’s all about e-penis, and by golly gee, tuck those e-penises back in your pants. They look disgusting. We’re not on goatse.cx, darnit!

    Drm, I keep telling you — you used to be funny
    and now
    I just don’t know

    Do I need to come back to the aniblogosphere and yell, “CLENCH THOSE TEETH” ?

    And to top those fansubbers you write something comparably outrageous to get hits. =D =D =D

    The only difference between you and them is that they’re making money off their AdSense and you’re not.

    Which is why a person like me appreciates watching raws more than watching subs.

    I go over to 4chan and every 10th topic is “WHERE ARE MY SUCKIN’ FUBS??!!” And it could be about a show that’s not even as popular as the top 10. And don’t get me started about the “speedy subs” and their poor translations.

    Yes, my fellow hobbiest of anime watchers. It’s all about the e-penis. And they’re raping the Japanese anime industry in the e-vagina and giving them e-creampie; not even concerned about it having e-VD.

    Well, most drama is unintentional 😛

    And besides, while I may seem rather outrageous, you should go talk to some ex-fansubbers. They’ll relate the same thing to you.

    Proper translation = censorship?
    Quality video = censorship?

    You’ve officially lost it. Are you so desperate for attention that you sink to calling names? That’s for preschoolers and politicians, not civilized people.

    Have I lost it? I already lost it a long time ago, if you are referring to my sanity.

    Desperate for attention? Not really. My milkshake can bring all the boys to the yard, it’s how I make’em.

    Have I called any names? Nope, last I checked, I did not call any names 😛

    Maybe you might do it for the attention, and cannot comprehend the fact that some people write for the pure joy of writing. Just because I don’t think like you does not mean you have the right to insult me and my mother 😛

    Drawing attention to how self-centered fansubbing has become is called a desperate plea for being popular? Well that speaks volumes of your maturity, my young troll.

    Demanding quality from a paid product is expected, but not for free things. And that is what fansubs are. It’s either meant as a preview or a really long commercial to buy the DVDs and related merchandise. By demanding quality from free things, you take away the incentive to buy the product when it does come out. If, for some reason, you can’t get that in your head, enjoy being part of the dramafest on the Internets regarding fansubs.

    The participation in the fansub Internets drama is completely optional and most downloaders wouldn’t know what you’re talking about if they somehow stumbled upon your blog. Especially since you define e-penis as a few days worth of wait for higher quality translation.

    But hey, maybe you’re the type that is satisfied with Nyoron mass nekkid child events translations. If you want to ruin your anime experience, so be it.

    Anya:

    Usually, the ruining of the “anime experience” can be blamed on the anime itself. What with all these titles refusing to man up, give male leads spine and have them exists outside of their typecasts, sexualizing children young enough to be in elementary school…

    Last time I checked; the purpose of the penis is to help impregnate the womb and aide in the reproduction process. There wasn’t suppose to be an “e-penis.”

    “It’s either meant as a preview or a really long commercial to buy the DVDs and related merchandise.”

    Umm, I know that. Any show I watch fansubbed, I buy when it’s licensed in R1. I’ve also purchased R2 DVDs for series I know won’t get licensed. Honestly, I despise people who act like fansubs are a cheap alternative.

    Y’know, all these e-dorama are generated by the middle-income do-haves Internet gen people, so I can see why lower-income and higher-income people don’t give a sh## about demanding better things from free (& legally illegal) stuff.

    Let’s face it: death of fansubs are not going to kill you. Probably your anime interests will. But at the end of the day, once you get out of that “hikkikomori” cocoon and realized you need to propagate your species, have bills and die, all this materialistic pursuits aren’t going to get you anywhere.

    Oh, btw, you sounded like Oscar Wilde, drmchsr0.

    What do you mean “today’s” fansubbers.
    Fansubbers were this dumb back in my day too, which is why nobody liked me – I refused to follow the subwhore crowd!!
