Kadokawa posts up subbed Haruhi
Is this some other strange marketing ploy of Kadokawa’s? After Suzumiya Haruhi-chan being uploaded with subtitles, Kadokawa has continued in that manner it seems, by having the first 8 episodes of this year’s rerun/rebroadcast uploaded on their channel, subbed. How good is this sub? I have no idea as I’m not planning to watch it unless they beat current fansubbers but from what I’ve seen, I’d expect it would be somewhat similar to the Haruhi-chan sub quality. As you can see below in this post, they’ve chosen a disgusting yellow font for the first 7 episodes and the 8th – Bamboo Rhapsody – is more like the Haruhi-chan subs released earlier in the year. There’s only eight episodes up on their channel as of now, but I expect they’ll eventually get all 28 up there.
It seems weird to me that they’re appealing to people outside of Japan (i.e. non-Japanese speakers). But hey, free subs are win? This is a good opportunity for anyone who’s never watched the series, are interested in the series or just want to review what’s happened to date, to watch online.
And they even allow them to be embedded and in HQ, hurray. So watch below if you wish to, or visit Kadokawa’s channel.
