Hello everyone. It’s been a while, but here we are! We’ve been trying to perfect this Kaku ep for a while now. It’s really been a bitch to do, for a lot of reasons. The narrator in this show is funny as hell, but is an evil person when it comes to rhymes or just talking really, really fast. But we overcame that and are bringing it out to you. No confirmed date for when the next one can come out (translator wants to focus on finishing GoGoV first and I fully agree with him!) Now, I’m going to make some notes on things that just couldn’t translate over. Jokes, basically. Rhyming jokes are made by Satan, in my opinion. If you TL’ed it directly then you would have someone screaming out nonsensical things, and while that may be funny to some (I actually would laugh if a Kaku character just screamed “GREEN LIGHT CATEPILLAR”), but it is not preserving the meaning of the original joke. I suggest reading this after watching the new ep, and when you do that you can see these notes:
So there was a joke that Azukiarai made where he was rhyming things every time he ended a sentence (with the ending “mushi”), and was relating them to different stop lights (red, yellow, green). Literally, at the end of the sentence involving green lights, you would have had the word “catepillar”, and while I do not remember offhand what the yellow light’s sentence ended with, I can tell you that red ended with “traffic violation”. Cearly this rhyme is fucked from the get go. We changed it specifically so the joke would flow, and if you want a TL note, well this is it. And if you could immediately tell what the joke was just by hearing the audio, then maybe these subs aren’t for you. The second time this happened is with the narrator. He made another rhyming scheme type joke based on scrub sounding like scissors in Japanese (scrub scrub scrub, rock paper scissors, literally). Doth fucking sense does not make (Shakespeare really said that, I swear!) So we were on a quest to find something that rhymed with scrub, and the answer is what you saw in the subs. It actually works very well considering he is dragging you into a body of water. We were very happy that English had that kind of equivalent.
Now, onto Da Garn.
We have finally caught up to the scripts posted on the lovely Kou’s blogs, and we will wait until she is able to post more. (I lied holy shit she posted more holy fuck! ) Not only does she have a job in real life, but she is also working with MegaAnon GUIS on Zyuranger (check that out guys), and on Carranger with Harorangers (check that out too!) So she’s been very busy! Still very happy that she’s able to do these projects!
Super Sentai World is a scrub, but is a scrub with a TL check that caught an error regarding Daidas and his companions, and I made all the terms match up to whatever group has subbed each show. Sadly, the only show to remain unsubbed in this special is Fiveman 😦 That should be fixed! The RAW was provided by our friends at Daigeki (check them out! They have English translations too!)
Ouran is a special thing, really. Done by our scrubber friend GekiKnight. He would be scrubbing Gosei right now, but there’s no RAWs at all because of the megapocalyse, so that’s pretty much on hold. And I really like this show. It has some Toku alumni (which is cool). We got the guy from Kabuto (has yet to see Kabuto) as Tamaki, GekiBlue and his twin brother as the twins, and Alata from Goseiger as Honey. No I am not fucking shitting you. He’s Honey. Yes, him. I know it’s funny stop laughing. Okay, I’ll wait.
