Nothing beats a real imouto
And now for something completely different. Mitsuki jumps in the rankings and is absolutely great this episode. Things of note include the new/modified terminology “shadowed”, which basically means “possessed by a shade” (which is what Mirai thought Akihito was in the first episode). They also finally used the word “youmuseki”, which was almost put in as “rock-mode shades”. There was probably something else… (usual spoiler warning)

Spoiler: Everyone gets naked this episode
And here we are for the second night of Walpurgisnacht. I hope you like crying girls, because that’s what you’re getting.

This is more important so it goes on top. For the controversial “youmu” translation, we originally had “demon” to go along with cambion, but changed it to “shade” in episode 2 to match the Void Shadow. Other groups have phantom, youmu, or the much debated “dreamshade”. To everyone who pretends to understand Japanese and tries to know better than actual fansubbers: fuck you. As this latest episode of kyoukana demonstrated with the dream monologue, taking clues from the kanji used (妖夢) and attempting to localize is in fact the best way to translate. Sure, UTW took a bit of a gamble, but it paid off this time, and it should be taken whenever possible.
Once again: fuck you.
This anime features unobtrusive dialog so that the viewers can fully enjoy the cuteness of the girls
The only real note is that apparently animal crackers and animal biscuits are distinct and different, and the latter are more oishii. Spoiler images after the break.

I wanted to use a winking one, but her eyes are too beautiful
We made a few changes this episode, namely turning 妖夢 (youmu) from “demon” to “shade”. With the advent of an important figure that has “shadow” in it’s name, this seemed like an appropriate choice. For the record, “cambion” and “exorcist” have not changed. Also, what we had as custodian last episode is now “Cleaner[s]”, as it seems to be an exorcist-related group that cleans up their messes. Pretty sure that’s it. Plot starts to be fleshed out this episode, so enjoy.

Woohoo, new KyoAni anime!
And thus starts the autumn 2013 season of anime. It took us about 12 straight hours of work to get this out to you, but I’m damn happy that we did it. To all the new visitors: welcome, and thank you for checking us out. For those of you who haven’t even heard of us before—why aren’t you watching Aikatsu? And finally, thank you to everyone who has come back once again for another season of anime. As this is a supernatural show we had to make some choices with the terminology, and though I have yet to compare to other groups I will explain our reasoning after the break. In any case, if you somehow got here before seeing us on Nyaa or something here’s the link (which we should really get to updating soon).

Do I look like a normal human to you?
The decision has been made: Mezashite! will be subbing KyoAni’s new anime, Kyoukai no Kanata, next season. And this time, the chuunibyou delusions are real. Too bad they didn’t keep the concept art…
That’s all we’ve got for you right now. We don’t think this is going to change, but other anime may be picked up or dropped as we see fit. Maybe. Don’t ask.
