What's the deal with the fansubs?  

So, is Eclipse dead or what? Their sub of episode 62 is STILL not available and it's looking like it may never be. Anybody know anything about this? Is TMD any good?

No clue what's going on with Eclipse. Episodes 1-61 are still in the archive, but there's no link for FMA:B on the main page, and usually they leave the old one until the new one's out.

I watched the TMD sub, and it was just fine. Had something weird going on with the "g"s in their font, but other than that? Just fine.

TMD's very good. There are some translation differences between the two, but that's to be expected, right?

Re: Answer!
Ah, thanks. I was wondering.

For consistency's sake, I'm gonna wait for Eclipse no matter what. I hate changing to another sub group halfway through.

Re: Answer!
Yes, but if they have to get a new translator, there won't be consistency anyways. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush...

Re: Answer!
I meant consistency in the sense that I don't have to rename my files later. :P

Oh jeez. Really? That could take forever. Brotherhood could be over with before we see the Eclipse version of the episodes. :(

Re: Answer!
Me too! I've been with Eclipse since episode 1 and I'd kinda like to stay with the same subber if I can. Once you get used to one subber's style, you're kinda obliged to stay with them. :)

Re: Answer!
This is the reason I haven't finished Death Note or Blood+. My sub groups quit before the end and I could never switch. XD

I'm not as picky anymore. ^^; Well, at least now you can change the subs and styles on your own if you really want them to match (visually). :)

Funimation already has their sub up. =/
amethyst_konekoamethyst_koneko on June 25th, 2010 02:41 am (UTC)
Which is where I would go to watch the episode but I can't stand all the constant interruptions from all the commercials! >.<
Hewene: cartoon edsayhello on June 25th, 2010 02:52 am (UTC)
Commercials? I don't get any commercial interruptions on Funimation's site...
amethyst_konekoamethyst_koneko on June 25th, 2010 03:25 am (UTC)
Uh, yeah. Commercials. All over the place. When you go here - http://www4.funimation.com/video/?page=video&v=5480 - and click on the episode you want to watch, before it even starts you get a commercial! Checked it just now and an ad for Red Bull is running. It's a total pain in the ass. Funimation's website didn't used to do this when they first put up Brotherhood. Now, I might as well be watching network television. :p Last time I watched an episode on their website, there were at least 3 interruptions and, to add insult to injury, it was the same commercial all three times!! Thanks but no thanks Funi. I'll buy the DVDs from you but I pass on the webisodes. :p
Hewene: Edosayhello on June 26th, 2010 03:40 am (UTC)
Nope, when I click on the link you have there (same site I normally go to) it goes straight to the Funimation logo (you should be watching) and the episode. No commercials. I've never seen a commercial at that site. Guess I'm just lucky somehow!
amethyst_konekoamethyst_koneko on June 26th, 2010 03:58 am (UTC)
Lucky indeed! It's gotta be your browser. I use Internet Explorer and I got nothing. :p Checked it just now - ads for Norton Antivirus are playing. *headdesk* Thank goodness Eclipse got their subs up or I'd never get to see this episode like I want to anyway! \o/
openyoureyes: Ed - ponderlefthandpenguin on June 25th, 2010 03:02 am (UTC)
Really?? There's maybe three 30 second commercials per episode. :/ It's the same as Hulu and much better than normal TV.
Hewene: cartoon edsayhello on June 25th, 2010 03:14 am (UTC)
This is really, really weird, because I watch the episodes on Funimation's site, and there are no commercials, period. Just the episode. I wonder why that is?
openyoureyeslefthandpenguin on June 25th, 2010 03:19 am (UTC)
Really?? I watched the whole series there and I definitely did. xD;;

I get no commercials either, but I know it's because I use Firefox with Adblock Plus. Maybe you do the same thing?
Hewene: cartoon edsayhello on June 26th, 2010 03:42 am (UTC)
Ah! That must be it. But I get commercials at other sites, like ABC.com and TheWB.com... Weird. Not that I'm complaining, but weird!
ρ ρ fight da powah: [fullmetal alchemist] team mustangimti on June 26th, 2010 05:35 am (UTC)
Yeah, some sites are different (or are aware of Adblock Plus hahah). I never noticed some YouTube videos had ads until I was using Chrome, but videos on Hulu always played ads for me on Firefox.

Not everyone can view Funi's subs/episodes :/ Besides the U.S., that is.

I've been watching at Revolution Anime since the beginning and I haven't seen any problems with the subs. (Maybe one ep was weak.)

They've been pretty quick and have had 62 up since Sunday afternoon.


Enjoy!!! (It was EPIC!!)

I find TMD to be just as good as Eclipse, honestly.

Why don't you try DarkLegends60mb.org??
armor-alchemist: Meow Heartarmoralchemist on June 25th, 2010 07:53 am (UTC)
raw ftw

I heard that their translator is moving to Tokyo or something... but yeah, I have been collecting eclipse's subs too because I only download bd raws *SHOT*

I have been downloading their subs for other series too so I don't really mind waiting for a bit longer as long as they sub it eventually... =D
qashqai1 on June 25th, 2010 11:04 am (UTC)
TMD is alright; I like them better than Eclipse, to be honest. :P you can always try youtube, too. Anyway, not releasing episode for few days doesn't mean that group is dead. Sometimes some members of group doesn't have time to finish someting. I know that well since I'm doing fansubs myself. They'll release it sooner or later, because I can't imagine them dropping the show that they did 61 of 64 episodes because translator doesn't have time :P you can try asking on their IRC when they're planning to release it (though they're probably spammed with such questions already... I can tell from my own experience - too much of these questions is damn annoying. XD) :P
Sarahtakuya on June 25th, 2010 03:00 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I found this surprising too because I think 61 came out really quickly last week? I think I'll try TMD based on the comments though. I re-encode FMA to watch on my TV so as long as the TL is good... :D
