I give up. I'm downloading rips of the shows I pay to watch. Thanks CR for your awesome service.

They probably are a bug with Nichijou, all I'm saying is that Hanasaku Iroha, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi and Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai all had the same subs for weeks until they were changed recently (see my pics).

That being said, for Nichijou these 'bug' subs still look much better on a computer screen than the normal ones which have major blending issues. I realize you are having problems and I have no complaints if it is changed, I'm just stating what it looks like to me.

Just to clear things up, I don't particually hate the subtitle style that is used for Battle Girls - Time Paradox, Deadman Wonderland, Nichijou, Saint Seiya, Steins;Gate, and The World God Only Knows II. While I think it could be better with a slightly smaller size, it's not really problematic in any series except for Nichijou where they are quite hard to read in many backgrounds.

As for feedback on some other updates I've noticed (also noted in first post):
- Hanasaku Iroha/Sekaiichi hatsukoi/Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai - All these now have a slightly larger font that still looks good. (Note: Ep 3 of Sekaiichi and Oretachi are still small).
- Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi subs were changed from being a good size to being massive. There's a big problem with the current size...
- Blue Exorcist's subs don't look all that good, but they're hardsubbed so I don't think feedback would be particularly useful...
- Looking at Gintama S5 again, the subs seem up a bit too high on the screen. Nothing major though... .

Well, I'm glad you enjoy them. I on the other hand do not. I sit at a damn computer screen all freaking day and when I come home to watch anime. I like to watch it on my HDTV. Which I cannot do, because CR is a piece of shit, and has the WORST customers service out of any online streaming site on the internet.

Enjoy. I'm gonna go download some fansubs. Later.

Thanks for the info. I'll look into this to see if we can have the font styles changed for some.


Whats going on with CR? If the subs arent super small and hard to read they're pure white with no boldness and impossible to read.

What happened to the quality? Issues like this have never happened before on CR. Have you guys given up? Fansubs are better quality then you guys at the moment.

What's with the all white subs with no border on The World God Only knows? In some cases it is completely unreadable even. Please upload one with readable subs.

Calm down, jeez. I just got back from a very busy weekend in Seattle from Thursday Morning to Sunday Night; so I wasn't around to handle this. We weren't able to coordinate with the translators yet to permanently fix these issues due to this but we will now be working on the problems.

Fansubs do indeed have incredible quality potential these days, but luckily I'm satisfied with decent quality. Which is why I would be happy with Crunchyroll if I could only read the subtitles. It's as you said Zhemos, I just watched finished watching the latest episode of The World God Only Knows, and I have to say that pure white subs are not optimal(they kinda suck).

No need for multiple topics on the same issues. So the following are locked.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-707506/my-ordinary-life-episode-4
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-707684/astarottes-toy-episode-3

Edit: Styling issues fixed. Will see about mistranslations.

Edit2: Just got through a preliminary rundown with the translators so everyone should notice an increase in the subtitle quality. There were some issues with how their subtitles were working with our custom built system. I've given some workarounds for these issues and will see about making our system more robust.

Steins Gate, the new Episode I just watched:



I think this needs no further commentation, any subber should know that his is kinda bad.

Fixed it now. I believe that was submitted before I talked to them so it wasn't updated to reflect changes that will be employed in the future.

The styling issues are a problem with our system's compatibility with the subtitle files we are given. So it's not an issue of QC since we have QC. The problems with missing parts from last week was that we received the wrong version by accident.

Sorry, I fixed it, then someone uploaded another version of the subtitles shortly afterward which had the same problem. So I fixed it again and I'll make sure no one else touches it.
