Kore wa Zombie Desu ka – Of the Dead typesetting review
Groups: Hadena, Commie, Doki-AFFTW, Hatsuyuki
No blur is no fun.
Sideways signs are always fun. Again with the lack of blur.
Border color is wrong. Good besides that.
Font choice is a little off and it could use more blur.
Needs blur, font is too thick.
Font choice is bad, border is too thick.
Typesetting overlaps the sign. The color is wrong as well.
Not sure what they had in mind, but end of the typesetting is fine except for some reason it has a border. Also, hard not to laugh when they get the border color wrong on their name.
Wrong border color again.
Looks like they forgot to blur the border.
(tl note: not me)
This is what they did for all the notebook signs.
And this is the dialogue style just so people don’t get confused. Seems like a pretty good idea since most of them move around and don’t have any room to place the sign.
Yeah, this is probably as good as it gets. The effect on the original sign is replicated quite well.
All good here.
Yeah, this looks great as well. Especially the clipping around her head at the beginning looks much nicer than Hadena’s.
Not sure why the font choice is not similar to the original but since you can’t see the original it’s not a big deal.
Looks just fine.
This is basically perfect.
Fades in, changes color, and gets closer together. Pretty well done.
The heart is a nice touch, but the border color is wrong.
I like the movement and that it got blurrier, but the font choice is bad.
This is good.
This is good. Only downside is the movement was done by hand so it jumps around a tiny bit.
Font choice could be better but the real problem is that this lags terribly. Way too many moving signs on screen at once.
Border color is a bit off.
Font should be lighter and border should be darker. Fine otherwise.
Notes: For the Eu signs they just put them at the top with the dialogue style.
That’s one way to do it.
Font sucks, movement is off, color is wrong, blur looks bad.
I have no idea what they masked part of the sign and then picked a really bad font and used no blur.
Wrong color, bad font choice, no blur.
Should be 2 layers so the font can have blur too. Also, the fade ends way too early.
Yes, they really did this. About 7 more times in fact.
This is hardsubbed, although for good reason. It looks nice except the effect goes on for far too long and the font choice sucks.
Hadena: C+. Some of these are lolworthy and there’s a real lack of blur, but this show has a lot of signs that matter and they actually did them which is nice I guess.
Commie: A-. Every sign except one is really, really good. The episode title sign especially is great. Also, almost every sign has 2 layers which really improves them a lot.
Doki-AFFTW:B+. Most of these were fine. Color was off on a few and the one sign lagged really hard. Also, this release is not sorted by time.
Hatsuyuki C. I’m tempted to give this an H because lolhardsubbing but yeah they actually hardsubbed for good reason. The rest of the signs they did are just there, however. Also, this is not sorted by time.
