Don't Panic

The web guys took the tracker down while they investigate this. Everything will be okay. Don't panic.

Don't panic.

Don't panic.

Panic.

No, no, wait, don't panic. Sorry. Whew. Don't know how that got in there.

We Interrupt Your Show to Bring You This Message.

No Fourze this week! Instead, we bring you golf the Olympics!

Also, I wouldn't worry about getting a virus front he tracker redirect. Apparently going straight to http://tracker.tvnihon.com/index.php works fine. Google also doesn't detect any malware on the tracker or the Thailand site that people are getting redirected to. The site admin will look at it later and hopefully that'll all get sorted out.

Don't click on the tracker url from Google

Apparently if you click on the link from google, it sometimes takes you to a Thai spam page. Just bookmark the torrent page url directly.

Specifically, use this url with the index.php at the end: http://tracker.tvnihon.com/index.php

For some reason Avast is blocking http://tracker.tvnihon.com/ by itself, so that might mean something?

Also, I guess we made a contestable translation decision regarding the name of the guns. Here's my wiki article defending it.

Power Rangers going after Youtube

 http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-07-24/power-rangers-owner-taki...

I just thought the response was pretty funny, more for the obvious ignorance than the poor English skills:

This video is my private Property n u cn see hw many views i get on this video people are requesting me to upload more of this video, so please get clear who the hell is jealous of my video and trying to removie it frm YouTube. [sic] I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief the material was removed due to a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled...

So I got an e-mail that Peter H. Brothers wrote a book called "MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN – The Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda".

Thanks to the person who forwarded this to me, I had not been following the news on it. I don't really know what to think of it, to be honest. Is that Kouno from Agito and Miki from Geki too?

Seiyuu See Me: Tachiki Fumihiko

So how much do you know about voice actor Tachiki Fumihiko (立木文彦)?

Did you know he's the voice of both GaiaMemories and the Rouse Absorber and the King Rouser? Plus, I'm pretty sure he's the voice for the Kamen Rider movie trailers too.


But he also does anime! Who can forget such roles as Zaraki Kenpachi from Bleach, the scary father from Oreimo, and Ikari Gendou from Evangelion? (Read the actual wiki page for an interesting story about the last one.)

He also does voice overs for Forest Whitaker and Tom Sizemore, as well as doing dub work for Transformers Animated, Dark of the Moon, and WALL-E.

Check out our wiki page on him.

If we have any seiyuu otaku around who'd like to help write some pages for toku related voice actors, please contribute to our wiki. It'd be a big help since seiyuu tend to have a lot of roles. The big thing we're trying to do is capture their toku roles on our wiki, as well as their main anime voice roles, then leaving the rest for ANN.

Right now, I'm creating these pages by translating the Japanese wiki as well as inserting the bolded stuff from ANN.

Release 3000: Kamen Rider Ryuki Theatrical Cut HD

Man, three thousand releases. Nothing like an anniversary to give you a sense of how much time has passed.

I think this is cause for celebration. Few groups ever make it this far and I think we just get better as more time passes. We're always learning more, making improvements, gaining experience. In a world where there's so much unnecessary ugliness, I think it's really important to be doing something positive. Just do stuff to make other people happy once in a while. That's important.

I'm really proud of the work my collaborators and I have been doing. Unfortunately, I really think people give me too much credit for the stuff that comes out. Fansubbing isn't something that you can do really well by yourself. The collision of different ideas and collection of knowledge really makes the end result that much better.

Timers help get the project started off. Just having a script pretimed helps a great deal with efficiently going through and translating the material. We couldn't do all that we could do without them.

Typesetters give the subs that magical spark. If you notice it, it's probably too much, but overall, just a little creativity and a good usage of colors and fonts can really make a sub come alive. As a translator, I don't really think we should be altering the experience too much from how the Japanese experience the show, but if we can capture a feeling or enhance something that's there, then that's really good.

My fellow translators. That's right, I don't translate everything for this group. And translation is hard work. Capturing all the ideas in a Japanese sentence isn't a simple one-to-one swap with English.

Editors and QCers really fill in the other half of the script. They catch mistakes, offer improvements that usually make the translation a lot better. They offer ideas and insights that one person could never have thought of. If there's any group whose credit I take too much for, it's probably this group. The script is just that much better for it.

And in a few months we'll have cause to celebrate yet again...
