Japanese Design vs. English Design

Included in the download are two options for the visual design of the subtitles:

  • Japanese Design: Japanese title designs (and similar text) are subtitled in English.
  • English Design: Japanese title designs (and similar text) are completely replaced by English overlays (with designs that mimic those in the VHS tapes of the TV series).

I completely understand the appeal of choosing Japanese Design, but if you watch the TV series using the subtitles I made for it followed by the movie using the English Design subtitles, it ties the whole experience together. And for those of you who can’t read Japanese, towards the end of the film it also simulates the subtle impact that the montage of episode titles would have if you could read Japanese.
