Yeah, I’ve gone over the deep end with this series. These little guys have invaded my soul, because I can’t get enough of this damn show! I would like to officially curse Soldats for working on Monster instead of Keroro Gunsou like they should. I ventured over to their forums, and they are getting /killed/ by the fans for not working on Keroro and putting out Monster over the summer months. They’re claiming their taking a vacation, but they can’t say that when over the last month, they’ve put out 5 episodes of this other series 😛 No one’s watching Monster, guys, the masses have spoken.
Now, a word about fansubbers in general:
Claim #1: We’re not doing this for any kind of recognition. Yeah, bullshit. If you truly weren’t doing this for recognition, then sub it and distribute it to your friends only. Don’t create a website or forums for people to feed your egos.
Claim #2: We don’t owe you anything! No, you don’t (technically). But when you keep up a certain pace and set expectations, then you suffer the failure of those expectations. You can’t honestly expect not to get whipped by people when you fail them, even if it’s a free service. And you know what I say about free service? Due to complaints about the free service, there will no longer be any free service.
As you can see, I have a short fuse when my bullshit-o-meter buries the fucking needle. I’ve worked with fansub groups in the past; so I have a nominal understanding of what these groups go through, but to say one thing (we’re on vacation) and then do another (put out episodes of a shitty anime), how the hell can you expect us to beleive you? Either put out or close shop, guys. Seriously.
We need more Keroro Gunsou. There is no room for discussion otherwise.
As you can see it has also eaten my soul.
AFROOOO TWIIISSSTERRRS – This is what ruined Keroro Gunsou for me…
Oh man beat me too it, but I think that is awesome!
Not knowing the series you’re talking about and not knowing much about fansubbers, I have only this to offer in their defense – maybe it’s easier to do a crappy series, than actually spend quality time on something that everyone enjoys and you really want to get right?
Says the woman that only discovered BGC 2040 the other day and went ‘Cool! I want a nanoimplant that makes me a raving nutter too!’. A friend of mine, Reece, agrees with me though that Sylia could possibly only have gotten that body through very expensive plastic surgery and the removal of a few bones.
So you’re gonna dress up as one of them during JTAF, right?
Not unless someone else is going to pay for the extremely costly plastic surgery? At this moment in time, my plans are firmly set to dress up as myself.
With an old-school leather football helmet, some decals and a fuckload of green paint, you can do it!
