With Kira-Fansubs having been established for over a year now, we’d thought it’d be beneficial to both us and the fans of our work if we did something common in the real business world; a yearly evaluation report. However as with most things I head up (see the “Let’s Play A Game” post below if you haven’t already; it’s super fun ) I like to do things a little differently and with my own special spin on things. So with this evaluation report we’ll ask the viewers for their opinions on a variety of different things in a variety of different ways. Following this paragraph there will several different polls available for you to vote in, as well as a couple of ranking polls designed for you guys to let us know how we’re doing. However, if you would like feel free to leave a lengthy statement in the comments section below, I will personally read all of these comments and reply to all of them in a somewhat timely manner. Furthermore, if you want to be even more ballsy, Me (kliqIMB), Romeyo, and Maruko will all be in IRC Monday night (the 17th) where we’ll have a live chat about the site, the shows, and just everything in general. With that in mind ON TO THE POLLS!
1) The most common poll for any group that focuses on Blu Ray releases, do you prefer 720p or 1080p?! (This is just for informational purposes, the results of this poll will have no effect on the quality of either resolution in our future releases)
2) Here’s one that is pretty damn important to most muxers, if the original sub group releases the BD should Kira release them as well? Also, if we were to drop the BD should we continue to release the JUST the extras?
3) What sort of subs do you prefer, do you enjoy a more liberal translation (ie, may or may not have honorifics), or a stricter translation (ie, sentences may not flow well, but translation is closer to original Japanese)?
5) Finally, as most of you can see, Kira’s releases tend to lean towards the ecchi demographic which often times results in nsfw pictures in the release post; would you like to the site “cleaned up” a bit, or is it just fine the way it is. (Note: This will not effect the doujinshi section of Kira, just the main section of anime releases)
