The bad news.

Hello, everyone. It is with a heavy heart that I write this message. After 4 long years of subbing, DDY is shutting down.

We’ve come to the conclusion that Amazon, Funimation, and Crunchyroll really are saving anime. Their translations are top-notch. Their typesetting is unmatched. Their encodes are so beautiful, it hurts. They always offer the most uncensored content. I have to admit, I’ve always loved their dialogue styles. And it’s easy to see that they pour their love of anime into their product.

Besides, our subs were pretty dame. Our localization choices really were uncalled for. We’ve done a little bit too much scriptwriting. And we went a tad overboard on the memes.

It couldn’t be helped. I, for one, welcome our new corporate overlords, but that makes this situation bittersweet at best. It would leave a bitter taste in our mouths to leave our backlog as it stands now. So to clear it out, we’re going to have a release for you all every hour until there’s nothing left.

It’s been good subbing for you all.


P.S. A shoutout to our biggest fans on MAL! We love you!

Shitty editing choices and meme-subs. Commie 2.0
I like them called Corpse’s, but No-name killed it.
used to be good
I do not like the way the translate Kabaneri to Demi what ever.
Dame use to do honorifics & other stuff but as seasons come & go they became more liberal. They have improved however their editing has gotten worse which is a big deal to me. They are not distinguishable from trash groups like Commie/Vivid/FFF & soon GJM
Go with Doki instead
Only clueless ESL twits wouldn’t realise how bad ‘demicorpse’ sounds. Keep your editing professional or get lost.
Lol liberal translations and translating people’s names… (Mumei -> Noname). While technically fairly accurate, seriously? Self indulgent much…
No name ? ayylmao
Tried too hard to do a “”””professional”””” translation by putting shitty localisation like Demicorpse and No-Name
Why didn’t you TL the names in your other shows? They got meanings too? Stupid logic! Disturbing localization. DDY is getting worse each season & I use to like them. Editor seems to be Period who ruined Pandora, avoiding anything by this egotist
Localized names. Translated Mumei as no-name.
Commie level of shit. Awfully bad americanized shit. Liberal as fuck. Terrible translation for stupid hamburgers. Watch with HS because translation for this show is very good (not funi or cr)
total shit, avoid at all cost
Awful, self-indulgent editing.
Unnecessary localization. I get why they do it with things like translating Mumei’s name, but it just doesn’t sit well with me for some reason.
Too much westernisation that ends up detracting from the story.
>wishing you were UTW and make up terms >demicorpse >Wishing you were Commie and overtranslating >Mumei=Mrs .No Name (and yes its actually a name, a name given to her by another character, not a nickname or an insult)
This group is basically commie 2.0 = worst shit. Americanized shit full of mistranslations and extremely liberal edited. Rewritten dialogues, with nonsense. AVOID!!!
This group hates honorifics now.They’re complete trash and should be shut down.
DDY never had a good original TL, their releases are not to be trusted, changes from their v1 to v2 confirm this as a lot (1/5th) of the script was changed, Commie also already has all the 5 episodes out, go with that.
That moment when the dialogue covered half of the screen
“Has something happen to your father?” Sugoi QCing, onii-chan.
Shit script. Don’t even know that it’s ‘Must have and not Must of’ and the usage of “It’s and its is all wrong”.
Groups like this have destroyed fan-subbing. They do not translate anything, they simply take the official broadcast script and edit it to make the characters sound like Americans. And what’s worse is that there are idiots who actually like such garbage.

    tfw when you realize its april 1st

  • Schezza

    damn.. so after Eclipe, Elysium, Thora and UTW, another good guys are shutting down.

    RIP and Thanks

    • Schezza

      Whoops, I did forget. Alright, you got me. But I just stood up, so fuck you. It doesn’t count.

      • Schezza

        Besides I didn’t even read the post lol. Obvious troll is obvious. My only thought went to the groups in the past, that I am still loyal to and whose bookmarks I still have saved.

  • Shineek

    Wow at last, one boring sub group less. Took you long enough, but it was worth being subscribed to the news to read this.

    • Shineek

      OH BTW i should mention this in only half way an aprils fools joke on my side. Most of the team here has either no time or motivation to do it anymore, yet still you pick up several shows each season and add some BD’s to it, after which they get more and more delayed with some shows being delayed for over a year and the 2 for 3 ongoing onese for 5 weeks, not to mention you even have the number of episodes for Maid Dragon incorrect. Maybe you meaent is as and april fools joke but i think its really time to call it quits.

  • damedamedamedesuyo

    Can we have the 1-release-per-hour thing? :3

  • Anon

    The worst thing about this post is linking to crymore

    • Period

      It’s Koku so that makes it okay. He’s staff after all.

      • Anon

        That’s still giving that mouthbreather that runs that shit more attention than he deserves, tbh. Nigga doesn’t even speak Japanese and decided to run a website judging the quality of subtitles for Japanese content.

        • Shineek

          At least it looks like he cares more for anime than subbers who cant even look up the correct number of episodes for a show they do, nor do an amount of shows that they will be able to realese on regular basis. Ongoing shows are only worth when watches as ongoing, not in a bulk later on cause the subbers did get delayed.

  • chai

    RIP Commie 2.0

  • April fools much? None of those mentioned are very good, for the casual TV watcher they are good enough but the vast majority of people who’d watch will only do dubs, and localized subs are bland and overly localized. I want translations notes, honorifics, subs for songs(karaoke)and non Americanized translations. I pay Crunchy roll out of pity but they sure as hell do not offer it, netflix is a bit better at times but no karaoke,ect, funi is trash as far as info rich quality subs go.

    So IMO good quality fan subs are will never go away until official sources offer more info rich subs but like with anything that’s non standard in media the end product will get watered down more and more to widen demographics and cut costs….

  • Nyann

    Glad to hear your confession and God bless you for shutting down you dame dame subs.
    One release every hour?! chi-chi-chi! DameDesuYo!

  • LoL the 1st paragraph got me heart-attack…YOU FREAKING TROLL ME MAN>>

  • namednoob

    First being X not letting the loli have a grand finale now, April 1st owning us… what else… Being X will take over and make us cry like lil kids?

    Thanks a lot for Re:Zero BD’s by the way, really appreciate it!!!!

  • Aquviel

    For 5 seconds I believe you, then I remember today is 1st April! :)

  • Delta

    We’ve come to the conclusion that Amazon, Funimation, and Crunchyroll really are saving anime that made me piss lol

  • Name (Required)

  • quack

    We’ve come to the conclusion that Amazon, Funimation, and Crunchyroll really are saving anime

  • DDYfans

    then you realize its still april 1st

  • After watching Gabriel’s Dropout, I must admit that crunchyroll translation is Godly Good. Really. Their translation for this series not stiff and full of funny jokes not unlike Commie.

  • Anon

    daiz strikes again

  • Jackie Wayne

    Dude, if it bother you just focus on releasing BD version which ain’t done by Funimation or Crunchyroll..

    My not so April Fool thought.

    There are so many shows deserved BD release and yet most group compete to fansub the TV release and often subbing the same shows.

    BTW, appreciate your RE Zero BD release. I need it, so badly. Thank you.

  • Stinx

    bad joke is bad

  • ¬_¬

    Would have been more funny if they made a “404 page not found” with that message

  • كباب محشي

    it’s 1st april Z_Z

  • walker

    Lol. I’ll be honest, I was fooled for 5 seconds or so.

  • Bozzzzzz

    Whoa, that was a close one. Was worried but then remembered te date.

  • Oz

    I felt my heart drop to my stomach when I saw this. Read the comments and thought wow, you got me good.

  • charon

    At least you finally owned up to No-name in the end. That’s all that matters.

  • lml this gave me a good laugh gotta admit.

  • meh

    “They always offer the most uncensored content”

    thats not true. They were using censored version of Valkyrie Drive for example. On other hand ATX raws used by commie fansub was uncensored

  • Bmjy1000

    Did you really translate Mumei’s to No name? The hell’s wrong with you guys?

    • Anonymous

      The people who run fansub groups today were exposed to such high levels of TL notes in the past that they have developed an intolerance to them. So now, when the meaning of the kanji of a name has some relevance, instead of using a TL note like a sane filthy weeb subber, they translate them.

      • Period

        lol implying words with meaning shouldn’t be translated

        • Anonymous

          lol implying names aren’t a very special sort of word

          • Period

            Except that isn’t a name. She had no name.

      • And I will still choose those that do tl notes because fck conformity. But then again most shows don’t need them badly. Still I’ll use the option to to run them when I can find them.

  • edxjn

    … your barrage of releases (BD and TV, batches and non-) actually starts to worry me somehow …

    • Begna’s cancelled the seedbox subscription already, so we only have a few hours to push everything out the door.

  • Nyann

    Looking forward for LoveLab fool! Oh, I’m such a fooool.

  • SONNYxq

    Hahaha You are awesome guys :D

  • naggerslayer

    top fucking lel

  • Hi

  • skyhack

  • WhoFramedRogerRabbit

    Goddammit, I was so devastated. Fuck April 1st.

  • Olverlod_Laharl
