    nothing quite beats two layers of text running over each other. Who needs to know what characters are saying.

    It doesn't take a lot of mental prowess to play an mkv, I just like my subs to look fancy.

    mkv:

    Not very pronounced in this anime, but in some there is a GREAT deal of difference. In which the fonts are different colors to match the characters, and mkv tends to have problem with the font, which is fixable, but a hassel that could be avoided in the first place.
    Kind of like why buy an engine and a car when you can get the same car with the engine already installed for the same price?

    I also love it when the line is too long by a word, so in a long conversation you get this.

    "I went to the store to get some groceries, that's where I met
    him.
    He was the clerk and he handed me an onion, but it had little green
    hairs"​

    i have never had any issues at all with mkv's layering subs on top of each other or anything like that.

    I prefer MKV, but sometimes my computer hates a groups mkv releases, so I go avi in those cases.

    Also, I prefer hard subs :hsd:

    I prefer hardsubs, but with .mkv I tend to find higher resolutions and it's nice when you can get dual audio. Sometimes with .avi's I get weird rainbow ghosting effects.

    Overall, I prefer .mkv.
