The subtitles display too soon and disappear too fast throughout the series, basically they appear before the Japanese voices are heard and disappear before the voices are done.

I want to request this series subtitles to be fixed which I am sure the fault lies with CR and not with NIS America.

I am curious why you are "sure" the fault lies with CR.

One way to tell if the fault indeed lies with CR would be to check the series out at Hulu, as those episodes were supplied directly by NISA.

Given that NISA typically posts their series to Hulu well before CR gets them, that would mean they provide the subtitles, so it would seem a bit odd for CR to turn around and do their own.

You have a point and I'm not even going to bother attempting to compare CR to Hulu because Hulu is complete garbage (ads are in place even if you have Hulu Plus).

It would actually of turned out better if CR did their own if the fault does lye with NIS America.

It appears the series uses soft subtitles, so unless there are terms in the contract that would prevent any alteration, CR should be able to change the timing, but they likely require specific episodes and possibly even timecodes for that.

I compared both last night by watching the first few minutes of episode 1 at both Hulu and here at CR. The timing on both appeared to be the same, but for that segment, both also appeared to be normal.

I skipped a bit into episode 9 earlier tonight and noticed those subtitles required some quick reading (and could have stayed on the screen longer). As I am curious now, perhaps I'll check that one out at Hulu tomorrow to see if the subtitles for that segment have the same timing.

Unfortunately these are directly in the video and we're unable to change them. :/
