Script Review: [Mazui] Hyouka – 01
Mazui lives up to its name.
r/a/ge level: 10/100. Mazui’s name may mean unpalatable, but /a/ eats up their subs like hotcakes.
Honorifics present. I didn’t get to the ending to find out any more information. Sorry.
No. Just no. That is not the first thing that comes to mind. This is like trying to use both definitions/uses of rose-colored at the same time. Is high school life nostalgic, cheery, promising, or what? It does not lead into the next line at all. The line essentially forces the viewer to either completely ignore the lines because they’re nonsensical (bad) or guess their own meaning for it (also bad).
Once again, the problem with using one definition of the word and an idiomatic one. Rose-colored is like nostalgic, but how does it make sense that new high school students want a “nostalgic” experience, or is it promising? How about “Nevertheless, I’m sure some students don’t want to think of high school as the peak of their lives”? Or “Nevertheless, I doubt all students think so highly of their high school days.”
These two lines also just sound so fucking stupid. A gray life? See, if you went with actual English, this line could’ve been like “a normal life” or something. Or “Surely some students just want to go through school on cruise control”?
“Though” + a comma is the least of this line’s problems. This translation so far has been such a clusterfuck that if I were the one editing this, I’d have to ask for a TLC every line.
No, I did not jumble these screenshots up. First of all, inferiority complex is stupid and doesn’t make sense here. Second… Uh… Everything after is just idiotic drivel.
This is where things sort of start to make sense, but each line would have to be heavily reworded to even resemble natural English.
And again, no. This makes no sense.
And… that’s the first 90 seconds of Mazui’s release. It’s bad. I’m not going to point out every problem in every screenshot. If you aren’t an idiot, you should be able to see for yourself. … is what I want to say, but some people think I should elaborate.
2:34. I give up. Oh, right. I guess people don’t know what’s wrong if I don’t explicitly state the problem. “Club” should be capitalized.
What I liked:
What I didn’t like:
Everything… or almost everything. Okay, some stuff made sense, but seriously, do not watch this release if you actually want to understand what’s going on. Maybe, like, if you don’t care that the characters all sound brain-dead, then you can watch this release without feeling dumber.
If you actually think this release is acceptable, I really wish I could hate you to death. Hadena releases make more sense than this.
– The characters are mostly incomprehensible
– Worse than Hadena
– Worse than SubDESU
– Worse than Doki
Overall Grade: The very first 1… out of 5.
