A girl that just moved into town gets baited into joining a fishy club which is struggling to stay a float with bare minimum members. This little shrimp doesn't want to join but with time she'll be hooked on it. This anime is reel fun I swear, don't cast it aside!

(The anime sadly doesn't have as many puns as the OP post; although if you want fish puns then look no further than Ika Musume)
It's a very relaxing show as expected of Doga Kobo – even for someone who's never fished; this is more of a SoL than a "sports" anime – but funi's subs are pretty questionable (they butcher any line with a dialect, and their unnecessary localization of "daijobou daijobou" to "don't worry your pretty little head" in episode 1 was quite jarring). There's apparently another company (Muse) that has licensed this and provides more "legitimate" subs, but unfortunately they only seem to release hard-subbed, low-quality compressed versions.

Why would anybody do this? How does somebody who took the effort to the learn the language well enough to write subs think this is okay?

I assume they were trying to localize it to match the dialect (which is unnecessary in this case anyway), but it somehow ended up sounding like an old lady

I know I should learn the language to obviate this crap, but why doesn't Fuckimation have any standards?

All the translators worth their salt are probably working at jobs that pay better than making anime subtitles. I'd imagine working with those retards is more or less a stepping stone in a translation career at best, and a permanent job for someone who doesn't even know the language at worst. There's quite a few people who do this shit for free, even.
I'd imagine the biggest issues probably come from a translator writing the subtitles and then handing it off to some editor who hasn't the faintest clue about the nuances, but that's just me talking out of my ass.

If you did want to learn the language, I'd say go for it. Turning off subtitles made watching anime feel much better for me, even if I don't understand everything 100% of the time.

This is my anime of the season. I'm no fishing expert but have some experience and have always maintained enthusiasm in the hobby so this is one of the few hobby animes that I actually have a vested interest in. It leans more towards iyashikei (as >>34287 mentioned) rather than the usual Goda Kobo cgdct SoL in my opinion which is a plus for me.

>>34287
Yeah, I'm not usually too pedantic about subs but some of the translation here are in bad taste like that one instance where it translates into "I'm pooped".

>>34282
Good OP.

It doesn't sit well with me how the club president tricked and took advantage of the main character who clearly didn't like what the club was about at all. She was obviously a shady person from the moment she showed up, but why would anyone even want people in their club if they find the contents disgusting? I know they're desperate for members but it defeats the whole point of a school club when the members -do not- want to be there.
Obviously she's going to learn to like it and make friends 'because plot', but that doesn't make it right.
>> No. 34295 [Edit]

I didn't like that part either: Hina was clearly uncomfortable and Yuki not only disregards her feelings but actively takes advantage of this vulnerability. In fact Hina still doesn't seem as passionate about fishing as she was about knitting, and as a result her chemistry with the other characters still seems rather distant.

And this isn't just a one-off thing on the part of Yuki since in ep2 she just offloads her work onto the new members. It really breaks the immersion when you see characters trying to take advantage of others for their own gain (as "minor" as that gain might be) – to me the tenderness and consideration characters show for each other is perhaps the most significant facet of SoL, and a stark contrast to the selfish machinations of the real-world.

This sort of thing was why I dropped Stella Jogakuin like a brick after giving it a shot. Much like Houkago Teibou Nisshi, it looked loaded with cuteness and had a girl who just wanted to join a tea club but was harassed, manipulated, and forced to join a survival games club, practically with a gun to her head. They event went as far as to have the character undergo physical changes to fit into the club, I just couldn't stand to watch that. It's not nearly as bad in Houkago Teibou. The club here is pretty harmless with some elements she likes, and it could actually be considered good for her. Our main character is grossed out by aquatic creatures, but like it or not she's stuck living in a sea side town where she's probably going to encounter a lot of marine life day by day for years to come, might as well make the best of it and tackle that fear head on.

I wonder if it wasn't meant to be a subtle metaphor for the horrors of war, how even little girls can fall victim to all the propaganda, manipulation, brainwashing, drafts, ect. Which leads to shattered dreams and the loss of innocence. One minute you're at a new school hoping to make friends, the next minute you're crawling in the mud being shot at. Such is life.

Oh C3-bu: After enjoying Sabagebu I was hoping for a lighthearted comedy, but it started to veer in the direction of psychological horror (ironically the very type of show that Sabagebu satirizes in its opening episode).

This sounds nice and all, but last fishing anime I watched was such a boredom I got completely burnt of it. Also fishing itself doesn't attract the slightest interest to me.
But the girls look cute.

I gave it a chance and it was worth it.
The character designs are great, and for some reason they are really similar to Nazo no Kanojo X, without the lewd.
For some reason I like glasses, she doesn't have too many defining traits, but somehow I like her.

Next season I guess. The same happened to me, I got late into the series, watched the first three episodes in one day and when I was looking for the forth I noticed it was delayed.

Tangentially related, but if anyone's interested an interesting programming project might be to OCR the subs from the Muse version and release a softsub. This might only be about half a day's work in python+opencv+tesseract: I'd imagine you could have a pipeline that crops videos to the sub region, extracts the sub frames (hard part might be determining a key-frame threshold; you could probably use the timings from the HS version to reduce false positives), then OCR them.

New chapters if anyone is interested. Now that Japan has lifted the emergency status, hopefully the anime will resume again soon.

Bummer, that's mildly disappointing but good news nonetheless. Also they will be re-broadcasting from the first episode so we can expect the fourth episode from the 28th.

That sucks pretty hard. Shame it wasn't some of the more crappy stuff from this season that got put on hold instead.
I do wonder if the delay wouldn't help give them more time to work on it and produce a better product.

Dogakobo is working on two animes this season, Yesterday wo utatte being the other and directed by a more senior staff. I didn't watch that since it doesn't fall within my range of interest but it seems to be doing well plus Houkago Teibou Nisshi being a hobby SoL and directed by a new director probably means priority is given to the former, sadly. I do agree and hope that this would mean they wouldn't have to sacrifice on the quality of the anime though.
