Fansubs or official subs?
Posted 1/4/09
I support fansubs. Simply because they can come up with the best equivalents to informal Japanese terms and for anime like Gintama, they give support references, which we clearly do not see in official subs. Furthermore, official subs don't translate songs or have karaoke text [yes, for the obvious reasons].

Even though official subs have their pros too, like episodes on time and better organisation, less chances of inaccuracies, are legit, etc. - i still prefer fansubs

who disagrees with me ;P i don't want this as a poll but as a debate, so don't bother me on that.

Fansubs all the way because they get a good equivalent, as you said, and they are rarely wrong. Also, the format, placing, timing, font, and border of them makes them easier and more relaxing than reading those big, yellow, arial font subtitles. Even worse, the official subs usually don't just use the English dub for an equivalent, but they even spell they're names wrong to begin with. For example: I bought a Bleach DVD a while ago, an episode that hadn't come out in English, and they spelled Ichigo's name, "Ichigoe," Kuroudo as "Kiroodo," and Lirin as "Ririn." I had to quit watching because the subs sucked so bad, so overall, the prize goes to fansubs ^^

I agree with u absolutely. Fansubs are more accurate than official subs. wanna why? I do support the anime by buying once it comes out but the subs are so terribly mistranslated and I regret buying it.

I rather watch anime with fansubs cuz it's done with love and care unlike official which only care for profits.

Who else support me? Come on, guys!
