Plans for Summer 2011

May 30, 2011

Somewhat randomly, me and Samu-tan were taking a look at what shows would be airing next season. Mainly to see what would actually be worth watching.
And then Samu-tan came across the name Kagami Takaya, LOLHeroes’ author. And in collaboration with ZEXCS, the studio that animated LOLHeroes. What’s more, Shikata Akiko will be doing the ED theme for it. OP by Harada Hitomi isn’t all that bad either, I guess.
Now, could it possibly get any better? (Well, actually, it could. It could have a somewhat more interesting synopsis. Then again, LOLHeroes didn’t really sound like the most interesting piece of animation ever made either.)

Taito has been really sleepy lately, and keeps dreaming of a female vampire who says she has given him her “poison.” Sometimes he even thinks he hears her voice when he’s awake. But after surviving an accident that should have killed him, Taito’s world changes drastically and he realizes that his dreams are more real than he thought.

So what this means is that we’re planning on subbing this show, named Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi (いつか天魔の黒ウサギ).

And this time, we’ll even try doing this with more than two people.
Meaning I’ll be looking for some more staff. And I guess I might possibly be able to pull some strings here and there, filling most of the empty positions.
Only other position would be, at best, another TL, or otherwise at least a TLC. Yes, I want another TL so I can kick back on TLC because I’m :lazy:
Got a problem with that?

Well, if we unexpectedly got loads of people to fill all the positions many times over, we could even be doing more than one show. But that won’t happen.
Inb4 Samu-tan edits this post first thing in the morning.

Now, I apparently didn’t make this clear enough.
What we’re looking for:
1) additional TL and/or TLC.
2) Capper or anyone else who can provide a .ts (which would usually be a capper)
Maybe there’s something else, but that’s clearly not as important.

Edit: Oh yeah, totally forgot this, it ain’t all that easy to obtain a .ts nowadays, so a capper would be nice. Or anyone who can provide a .ts from somewhere, really.
Edit2: There, now it’s clear enough, right?
Edit3: And if someone can be bothered, go write down the lyrics for this, mkay? Youtube link 1 | Youtube link 2
Edit4: Okay, judging by the latest trailer, ZEXCS decided that they should include a hell lot of pantyshots and fanservice. This is something I do not approve of. Just sayin’. In other news, that same trailer has this English voice saying this and that about it, and oh does it sound terrible when he tries to pronounce the names of the cast and the name of the series.
Despite the fanservice, we’ll stick with this, I guess.
Edit5: Well, not entirely unexpected, a capper has yet to turn up, so we’ll most likely be relying on share raws again and I’ll have to cut back a bit on karaoke effects. And no additional TL/TLC has showed up either. More work for me. Oh, and the show starts airing on Friday, July 8th, for those of you not yet aware, and we’ll be aiming for a Saturday release. Might not be possible though, due to a somewhat larger team, and we’re not really used to work together yet. It’ll be interesting to see how it goes, anyway.
Edit6: Just thought I’d mention, but I absolutely love Itsuten’s ED. And the OP’s great too.
Edit7: Dat new blog theme. Thought it’d kind of suit our new project.

    • July 7, 2011 12:07

      I’d suggest going somewhere else if you want subs for that.
      Too much faggotry.

    could someone seed LOLH BD 1-4? there is no seeder(s) out there…. xP

    • June 25, 2011 10:50

      There, I put the server on seeding, but apparently it doesn’t feel like uploading anything. I guess it might start sometime, though.
      If it doesn’t, you could always to for either MU (I just checked the links, and they’re still up) or try your luck with [xdcc]Ecchilicious (though it’s only got the 720p BDs for ep1-4, it seems).

        thanks! the download is moving hardly but the dl speed does not really move at all, never mind maybe it is because i am downloading other stuff at the same time as well. it might move when i have finished download the other stuff.

          the previous comment is not clear.

          its downloading but slowly as i am running other stuff as well.

          • June 26, 2011 10:56

            Well, no, I’d rather say it’s because my server ain’t got the best upload speed ever.

    The manga is pretty cool.. Its shonen fantasy fighting.. it kinda feels like a manga that should be on shonen jump… definitely better than DnYnD.. in my opinion. Now, I’m a believer that fan-service won’t ruin a story but if it gets annoying (Example: Infinite Stratos) I’ll probably stop watching it. (Note: The manga did not have much to any fan-service in it from at least where I stopped reading from)

    Whats wrong with fanservice. Just sub it okay?

    As for Edit3, the mimikopi here sounds pretty accurate to me:

    They’re probably including a shitload of fanservice so they can maybe sell some blurays, as opposed to the 3 people who bought LoLHeroes. It will probably still be fairly decent, its not like fanservice instantly ruins a show’s story.

    W-Waah. You guys don’t like fanservice?

    Anyhow, it’s only going to be one cour, so adaptation decay is pretty likely due to compression. Still, it’s Itsuka Tenma, and Takaya is the author here. I like the subs you guys did for Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu, so please sub Itsuka Tenma to how you guys subbed DnYnD. I’d love it and be thankful if you guys will do it. And if you guys do, please be mindful of certain terms/words which have unique/double meaning/context within the series, and how to go about them. I’d recommend going by how the LN translation over at Baka-Tsuki has them.

    • June 11, 2011 13:20

      Well, not when it ain’t needed, no.

      Anyway, yeah, I am very well aware of said terms/words/names etc., so there’s shouldn’t be any problem with that.
      And as you said, it is Takaya we’re talking about, so at least there will be a story, even if it’ll be shrouded in fanservice thanks to Zexcs.

    • July 4, 2011 10:48

      I don’t think there’s a need to include Double Meaning terms in anime subs, unless the anime itself indicates it, such as flashing a black screen with the term shown in its written form in the show itself, or introduced with a line that says, “Vampire, also known as Most Ancient Sorcerer”. Otherwise it will look very odd to a viewer. Even when this indication is done, it will also look odd if it gets repeated in the subs each time they say ‘Vampire’.

      I think the double meaning are notes of interest privileged to only LN and manga readers.

      • July 4, 2011 11:01

        The only form of implementation I’m aiming for here would be to, for example, instead of “Most Ancient Sorcerer” which for that matter sounds pretty lulzy write “Vampire”, regardless of how they’re actually pronouncing the word in question. Like, if they for whatever reason come up with the completely unimaginable idea to actually say 最古の魔術師 (saiko no majutsushi) every time it’s mentioned, I’ll still TL it as Vampire. Just sayin’.
        And in that case, I’ll put a little note in the release posts, just as a pointer to the reason why I’d call it ‘Vampire’ when they obviously say something else.

        • July 4, 2011 11:21

          haha, they won’t. the furigana is always “Vampire”. (but then it’s Zexcs, they might try something weird ^_^”). if you want to, maybe you can have a still frame of notes that tell the viewers that the kanji-okurigana is written as 最古の魔術師 in the LNs and manga (though I’m disappointed that the manga scantalations did not preserve this). but I’m not sure whether that in itself might be too much effort.

          the only term that you really want to be careful of is the word Tenma. Taito’s flames of Tenma (貂魔) is different from the “demi-god-like-being” Tenma (天魔), but pronounced exactly the same way. that will really be confusing to viewers if the anime didn’t make it clear that they are two different entities, which of course you guys can supplement in the subs. ^_^

          • July 4, 2011 11:41

            Well, yeah. I’m not expecting them to actually go out of their way having to say the whole thing every time.

            As for Tenma (Taito’s version) I’ll be going by the first kanji, so Marten or Martes, and then we’ll see what I’ll pair it up with for the second half of the word. Iirc, that’s how it was translated by baka-tsuki as well.
            The other Tenma, well, I haven’t really decided on what to call it. Wouldn’t it be a twist to just call it Tenma?
            And further discussion would probably spoil any other innocent fools who wander in here with the unthinkable intention of reading the comments. Feel free to drop by the IRC if you want to go further into details though. Just send a query and I’ll probably notice soon enough.

    I was wondering what this subgroup was going to do for Summer 2011. While the Derp homepage was loading, I was thinking to myself, “probably the show from the same guy who did LOL Heroes.” I’m a mahou-shounen.

    This is the summary the translators of the novels put up, it made it sound a lot more interesting:

    A freshman of Miyasaka High, Kurogane Taito was average at everything. And all this while, he had believed himself to be an ordinary regular guy. But, he was wrong. The reason was because of a certain event 9 years ago. For the sake of a promise he had made then, he had already stopped being ordinary a long time ago. However, not a single fragment of his memory about that promise remained. Who had stolen his memory and to what ends? One day, as a consequence of a certain event that had descended upon his ordinary life, his memories were restored. That marked the beginning of his “extraordinary” life…

    — you’ve finally died. I’ve been long waiting for this day —

    I’ve always thought that I’m a supporting character in life.
    But once again, it starts from here.
    My story.

    I’ll “die 7 times” for your sake

    Everything starts from that promise. A story of a reverse school fantasy!

    Anyway I’m looking forward to the show, hopefully it manages to hold your interest and you don’t drop it. Good luck with the recruiting.

    I can’t assist in TL, but my offer still stands to help wherever I can.
