Damn! It’s been a while, guys, but I’m finally back! I’m sorry for taking so long, but I’ve been working on a super huge essay (I’ll be posting it up on my personal blog, gunlord500.wordpress.com, sometime today or tomorrow) ever since I got back from my trip, so that ate up a lot of my time. I’m putting the finishing touches on it, though, which means I finally have some time for Dragonar!😀 Just three things to note here:

“Naruto” is NOT a translation error, it’s actually what those little fish cake things are called. Look it up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narutomaki

“Oideyasu” is Kansai dialect.

Finally but most definitely not leastly, thanks to sky79 for doing the Japanese translation before Starseeker looked it over for QC! You made Star’s job easier, thanks so much~❤❤❤

I’ll see y’all around next time! I got another trip to take in early October, and it’s a doozy (after that I need to work work work on my academic project), but I’ll try to work on Dragonar as much as I can. Wish me luck ;_;

Carrying on from last episode, Kim and Chris arrive on Dzoara, a planet of telekinetically powered ships and friendly people, and learn about a couple who were instrumental in fighting off the first Boskone invasion of the planet. And by this point we have completely gone away from the source books. At least the romance is better handled than in the books…

This was also the last episode that got any sort of home video or laserdisc release. From next episode onwards we’re dependant on Nanto’s hoard of multi-gen copies of VHS recorded off the telly. The next episode preview spliced into this episode is about as bad as it gets according to Nanto. I hope he’s right…

Metal Armor Dragonar, Episode 22: Orders to Destroy the Giganos Fortress!

Hey guys! Once again, it’s been a while, but I’m finally back😀 A few quick TL notes:

1: Kaine’s grandma speaks in the Tsuguru dialect, which we decided to translate as a Southern hayseed accent, sort of. I have to note, though, that Tsugaru is even more divergent from the mother language than any Southern accent is. Tsugaru is different enough from normal Japanese that it gets subtitled in official media, and even people from the same prefecture in Japan have trouble understanding it. ;o Thank God we had the Italian subs to help us make sense of it!

On that note, there’s a part near the end of the episode (pic related) where they start talking in a mix of broken Japanese and English, so we tried to reflect that in the subs as best we could while trying to keep it sounding natural, so we portrayed some of the dialogue as “SPELLED OUT IN ALL CAPS”  (“S-A-D,” “F-O-R-B-I-D-D-E-N”) to convey the impression of hapless soldiers trying to get through to a senile old lady who doesn’t speak their language, haha.

2: The Seikan Tunnel is a real thing😀

3: Ohagi is a type of rice and azuki bean sweet: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Botamochi

That about does it for this week. Sorry for taking so long, both me and starseeker have been busy. And I’ll be even more busy soon…I have to travel to South Carolina to do some research, and then after that, to New Haven to meet with my academic advisors😥 Hopefully afterwards things will calm down for me. Wish me luck!

[mSubs - TSHS] Lensman - Galactic Patrol (1984) episode 05 [E2DC86E8].mkv_snapshot_20.25_[2016.08.05_17.13.06]

And now we’re on to episode 5 of this adaptation, and we’ve run out of book to adapt, well the final battle hasn’t but this is a 26 episode show…

This time we’re getting some backstory on the Galactic Patrol which differs from the description given in the prequel book First Lensman (which I do not recommend you read unless you like plots about industrial espionage facilitated by the protagonist having an identical double cousin). Also fun with hyperspace, which doesn’t exist as a concept in the book because it’s old enough that the idea of the speed of light being absolute hadn’t sunk in yet.

On the plus side the animation’s getting better so I suppose that’s something.

Ultraman Ginga S – Showdown! The 10 Ultra Warriors

‘Hey, this film was fun, let’s try and sub it, it’ll be short and easy’, famous last words for this project seeing as it took a year. And yes I know someone else beat us to it in the interim, but I’d started so I’d finish.

Anyways, this is the tie-in film sequel to the tokusatsu show Ultraman Ginga S, which is now on Crunchyroll, along with Ultraman Ginga.

Hey guys! Gunlord again. Sorry for taking so long with this episode, I was busy with a lot of stuff this month, ranging from helping out some Kamen Rider friends of mine with a little bit of timing to getting sick ( ;_; ) to preparing for a trip. I’ll be going on that trip on Sunday (Yay for North Carolina~), but before then I wanted to get one more Dragonar ep out. So here’s episode 21 for ya! Hope you enjoy:

Onto episode 4 of this travesty of an adaptation and the anime’s utter gutting of the book plot gives us this slightly weird episode. Romantic leads gotta meet somehow even if the reason for the main character being hospitalised and meeting his cute nurse is completely removed… On the other hand we do get a chance to try and work in one of the book’s favourite phrases…

So apart from my annoyed ranting, enjoy.

[mSubs] RS Project v2.mkv_snapshot_00.04_[2016.07.08_15.31.36]

In the near future strange robots called Kikou attack Japan, and humanity is forced to use their own Kikous to fight back. But piloting them has a cost…

This is a short one-off TV special, so if you want to spent 22 minutes watching robots fight with some cyberpunk drama, give it a look.
