God damn, it’s been ages, my friends ;_; I’m sorry it’s taken so long, there was a tidal wave of personal things for me to take care of as well as matters with the project. Gorge got hit by a lot of work and personal stuff, so he had to bow out, which meant that I had to spend time looking for a new Italian…and that was hard to do, because I was so busy with working on my dissertation! ;_; But, thankfully, even though a year has passed, I managed to find a great new Italian translator! Say hello to Pampurio, my new friend I managed to find who has very graciously agreed to help me with Dragonar 😀 😀 😀 So without further ado, here are the links:

Dancouga Burning Epilogue 01-02

May 10, 2017

This makes the show look a lot more interesting than it actually is

It’s been a while hasn’t it. 6 years of avoiding working on this. So why’d I come back to it? Mix of reasons. First was it was a 4 day weekend and I needed to do something that wasn’t play the evil empire in Stellaris. The second is that someone actually made the effort to come into our IRC and ask for download links for episode 1 and was enthusiatic about the rest of the series. So I figured might as well finish this terrible OVA. Episode 2 isn’t as bad as I remember. Shame the episodes beyond it are worse.

The decision to do this in particular was actually made the day before Discotek announced they were licensing the TV series.

SDs are now out, torrent only though.

Translation has been cleaned up since last time, slight translation adjustments for continuity etc.

L-Gaim licensed.

As the L-Gaim TV series has been licensed, I’m taking down the TV series episode torrents from nyaa. OVA 3 is unaffected so far.

Yes I know it’s US only :(, but I feel it’s only right now there’s an official release.

Don't play with laser pointers kids

Oh look it’s another blindness episode. But a lot less stupid than the last time. Don’t worry, the excess stupidity reappears in a few episodes…

Also be advised there is a lot of that purple flickering old mecha shows used to love.

Metal Armor Dragonar Episode 23: Confrontation with Meio Plato

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…

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.
