    Err. Unless you're downloading your anime (which most of us do! :]), I think you can remove the subtitles? But yeah I know how annoying it is when there are texts all over the dam*ed screen! I'd get mad, myself. Even though I can speak and understand Japanese, I still need English Translation sometimes to aid me. (I'm not a professional Japanese speaker. Hehe.) Romanji, however, is not needed. There are always lyric sites for anime songs, yes?

    I understand the frustration, but most fansubbers are outraged at the mention that their volunteer work isn't the quality you're looking for. The arguement is: they're making available to watch anime that isn't otherwise available (yet). There are 2 things you could do if you're looking for, say, a textless OP to screencap from
    1.Be the fansubber's friend and ask for the raw, but TV rips aren't great quality and
    you'll probably re-cg the image anyway
    2.Buy the disc (either domestic, if it's released, or import, HK may be acceptable quality)
    and capture without subtitles on.

    As for over-translation, I think some groups enjoy it, and maybe they're considering that viewers in certain countries might not understand the situation from the visuals.

    That is annoying they did that on a fansubbed episode of princess tutu once it made me laugh!
