The World of Fansubs has Really Fallen?

I still don’t have an opinion about it, but Otaking has one: the world of fansubs has fallen. And to prove his theory, he made a 30 minute video that took half a year to be ready.

Otaking says that in the past, fansubs were way better, and that the amateurs fansubbers are destroying the fansubbing community.

He start the video explaining how animes were subbed in the past, around 1990.

Wow! I was 6 in 1990! Already a fan of sentais, like Jaspion and others that were showing on TV (I don’t even remember the channel, but I bet that my mom does), but at that age, I didn’t even knew that such thing as fansubs existed, I hardly knew how to read!! So, I have no memory of that time.

It’s a good video. Everyone should watch it and think about it. Specially the ancient otakus (j/k)! via Japanator

Português por favor?

Eu ainda não tenho uma opinião sobre, mas Otaking tem: o mundo dos fansubs está acabando. E para provar sua teoria, ele fez um vídeo de 30 minutos que demorou 6 meses para ficar pronto.

Otaking diz que no passado, os fansubs eram bem melhores, e que os fansubbers amadores estão destruindo a comunidade de fansubs.

Ele começa o vídeo explicando como os animes era legendados no passado, por volta de 1990.

Nossa! Eu tinha 6 anos em 1990! Já era fã de sentais, como Jaspion e outros que estavam passando na TV (nem me lembro em que canal, mas tenho certeza de que minha mãe se lembra), mas nessa idade eu nem sabia que existia isso de fansub, eu mal sabia ler!! Então, não me lembro dessa época.

É um bom vídeo. Todos deveriam assistir e pensar a respeito. Especialmente os otakus anciões (brincadeirinha)!

Infelizmente, está em inglês. E eu dúvido que ele vá achar um fansub que queria legendar o vídeo dele. Que ironia! via Japanator

    Ken said,

    Aiya it’s kinda true but not at the same time.
    I mean it is amateur…. not professional, but i do agree sometimes our fan sub exaggerate on the subs and make it absurd. Maybe less notes and flashy fonts is ok
