Of the various fansub groups that have subbed the Nodame Cantabile series (or parts of it); C1 Anime [C1], Anime-Keep [A-Keep], Bullet Speed Subs [BSS], Froth-Bite [F-B], Hard-Gay [HG-F], which do you prefer, or do you think there is no real difference? & Why?

Here's my reason for asking. While the script is from the same source, different translators will sometimes translate the same line differently depending on how complex it is. That paraphrasing can change the subtle meaning of a line or scene, sometimes more than others. This happens a lot in comedy series (like NDC) especially with the use of puns which can lose some of their comedic intent since often the translation doesn't make the same pun. Different subbers deal with these in various ways. Some ignore them, some add "editor notes" to help the audience realize why the line was funny, & occasionally you'll find a subber who takes the time to rephrase the line so that the translation has a similar comedic effect.

Personally I like the high quality of the [A-Keep] releases but I'm kinda partial the [HG-F] subs too. I like the way they translate certain things. They don't always translate word for word but phrase lines in a way that often feels more "natural" (to me anyway) & I think that helps preserve some of the comedic elements that might otherwise be lost in translation.
