Haven’t you heard?

Spring has one of the strongest line-ups I have seen in recent years. There are many shows that have great potential, but I have not gotten to them yet because I am still stuck with Winter anime, in particular, finishing G-Tekketsu.

But I have heard about Sakamoto and gave it a try. It is now my must watch every week. It is freaking hilarious. You have to take my word for it, because I am such a serious person, not many comedy gets my stamp of approval. But this one really does. Go watch it and it will surely brighten up your sour day.

And we have a Chloe ep! Her full name is Chloe Maxwell, it seems. (No, you don’t skip important signs like these, simulcast subs.)

Actually, this provides quite some food for thought. I mean, in the argument that takes place in this episode, neither are wrong. So, we are allowed to draw our own conclusions.

Also, does that sword carry a special meaning? If someone knows its meaning, please let us know~

The filesize is a bit large, but given the magic done on it, I’d say it’s totally worth it.

TL Note that did not make it into the release: At 14:59, there is a pun on the word “Meitantei”. As many of you know thanks to Conan, “Meitantei” usually means “famous detective”, with 名 aka “mei” being the kanji. However, “mei” is also the reading of 迷 which means “to be lost”. So basically she’s a “bad” detective nuance-wise since she keeps sticking her nose into other people’s business aka HQ Investigation Team, thus being interpreted as someone “who has lost her way and hence keeps doing such things”. Atleast that’s how I interpreted it. Hopefully this carried in the subs a bit…

For the other eps, 05 TL is done, with 06 ongoing. Slowly but surely…

Enjoy the snack~

Well uh, this is late…

But still, carrying on.

Also, I gave up on trying to fix the awful simulcast script, so I just decided to heck it and translate it myself. Switching to original translations from now. Also, before you start screaming “Delay!”, 04 is done and should be out tomorrow if all goes well, and 05+ are in the pipeline next week. (PS. I don’t like translating a full ep after coming back from work at 9 PM, but nothing to do.)

Anyway, enough negative chitchat.

This is an episode about Yurine and her conflict on what to do on the battlefield. What is the right choice to make?

Also using official lyrics for the ED.

Our first (and perhaps last) ongoing show with official script as base.

It’s a nice little show with a lot of pretty girls.

I wanted to do this, so I very selfishly asked Lann, Majin3 and Ryuk to help with it, and they selflessly agreed.

For the encode, Majin3 did some real magic on this.

Script: Official Subs, de-memefied, de-localized, TLCed, edited. With proper timing, karaoke, typesetting.

Video: Mix of Daisuki and BS11, taking the best of both.

We will be a bit slow on this due to all our busyness, but hey, let’s finish this.

If you’re using the latest CCCP Beta, please switch to DirectVobSub for now by setting the option here. It’s a temporary fix. Without it, the subtitles will start and end one frame before, causing the timing to look like it’s messed up. We’ve reported this and it should be fixed soon.

Enjoy the snack!

One Punch Man

Wow, based on someone’s recommendation, I watched One Punch Man. Initially, I thought it was just another one of those over the top shonen anime where it is about protecting your “nakama” and all the shallow nonsense.

I was wrong. It is anything but.

After watching a few more episodes, I realized the series is more than that. It is about Saitama, a plain looking, skinny and bald young man who is literally and actually the strongest person in the world. He has never met an opponent where he cannot defeat with one punch. However, his strength and ease of defeating others make others deem him as cheating compounded with the fact that he looks weak. As such, he saves the humanity and other heroes at crucial moments without getting any credit for it. It is truly the concept of an unsung hero.

We also see the ugly side of humanity with the tussle even within the realm of heroes where they jockey for power and rankings. Additionally, the show also touches on deeper topics underneath its humorous facade. Particularly, the topic of the convenient truth, with human beings, being insecure creatures we are, only choosing to believe in things that we feel would fit our notions of truth. This is ironically, and most of the time, always not the truth.

In all, just shows that we should not judge too early or go into something with preconceived notions. Likewise with interpersonal relations too. We should never have prejudice for it will cloud our judgment.

A release after forever. That too, thanks to ZeroYuki and fomite from Waku semi-unretiring to translate and work on this OVA that wasn’t done since forever. Thanks, guys! Without them, this wouldn’t have been possible. So please thank them.

About the episode, it’s pretty good with fanservice. It’s uncensored though. You have been warned.

It’s about summer vacation, adventure and many other things.

We’ve included a few references in our subs. And some things are reversed. That’s due to Kenny speaking English. Hope you find them likeable.

Also, I styled the ED, so any complaints about it should be directed to me. Thank you. And the lyrics are the official lyrics.

Also, we’ve used Ohys-Raws for this  release, and also 8-bit. If a BDMV for this ever goes up, we’ll v2 it with our own encode and polish up the script a bit more. The main objective for this release was to get it out so that people can watch it subbed.

Enjoy the snack!

Autumn

I have been so busy with school now that I am into my final few years. It is really hard to believe that just a few years ago, I was busy spending my life all day on anime and worst, trying to translate it for people who do not give a damn. Actually, that might be slightly unfair to generalize all the fans as people who do not care. I guess the fans these days do not appreciate, but a few years ago, there were fans that actually faithfully waited for fansubs, only to be let down again and again by groups like us. That was when they decided to give up on fansubs altogether. Nostalgic times…

I am not even sure I am posting on the blog these days. I do not think anybody actually cares about what I post, but I was feeling nostalgic and slightly lonely after some dreadful revision for my finals, so I decided to just write out some stuff. Apparently, writing is therapeutic because it helps in introspection and reflection. I also realized that because I have not been writing for a long time, as I no longer fansub now, my command of English is inferior to how it was before. So ironically, while I think fansubbing probably robbed me of the best years of my life, it still benefited me. It improved my English language as well as my Japanese.

Anyway, I have always touted Fall anime season to be where rare gems of good anime can still be found. It seems like the Fall selection has been deteriorating as with all the anime in recent years. But I did watch a few episodes here and there, and if you have followed some of the kinds of anime I have translated in the past, you would be familiar with the kinds of anime I look for. If you still have faith in my selection, I shall offer a few titles that I believe are worth your time watching, if you are finding it tough to decide, given the number of disposable anime these days. Rakudai Kishi is a great show using a classic tsundere. I thought I would never see this kind of anime again because it is deemed as cliche, but I guess like trends, what comes around goes around, and what was in vogue will come back to be in vogue again. Besides tsundere, Rakudai Kishi is directed by Shin Onuma, who usually emphasizes the deeper aspects of anime. So if you are like me, into deeper and emotional stuff, Rakudai is a good anime to watch. Shin Onuma was the director of Ef A Tale of Memories, an anime that still ranks on my all time favorites. It aired back in 2007, almost 8 years ago… Guess I am getting old…. The second recommendation I am going to make is Iron Blooded Orphans. This is one of the better Gundam anime since Gundam 00. What is even better is that you do not have to be a Gundam geek to be able to bask in the hype of this anime. It quite easy to relate to, given that Mari Okada is helming the scripts.

Well, I have said my piece, and it feels good writing after a long time. Here is hoping anime gets better!

TL;DR: Rakudai Kishi and G-Tekketsu are the better few anime this season which I feel are worth watching.

‘Sup

I surprised even myself when I actually finished an anime after so long… Actually, not that long, the last was Parasyte maybe a year ago or so.

I managed to finish Arslan Senki, so go watch it if you think you still want to give anime a chance. The show is about a boy’s quest to become King alongside his trusted aides, and to take back his kingdom. If you like tsundere girls who cross dresses as boys, there is Etoile in the show and I have taken quite a liking to her despite her being a classic tsundere. Other than that, the anime is pretty serious and talks about relevant themes such as the fact that there are no right or wrong in war. It is mostly started due to difference in ideologies, beliefs and even religion. It is sad, but with humanity, there will be war. History has shown that it will never go away unless there is a greater evil which could unite humanity. Otherwise, our insecurities breed suspicion and discontent among even our fellow mankind.
