Call to the lefties

Hey, I'm making a list of Japanese actors and actresses who are left-handed. So far I've got:

Hara Mikie (Cutie Honey)
Matsuzaka Tori (ShinkenRed)
Morita Suzuka (Shinken Yellow)
Sakurada Dori (New Den-O)
Yoshii Rei (Rinna from Drive)

Does anyone know any other ones?


Movie releases have multiple audio tracks

So a viewer recently had an issue where he was playing a movie we subbed, but got the audio commentary track instead of the normal audio track.

This is a first for me, but apparently the commentary track was the default track in this player. But the viewer was luckily able to find the audio setting which let him switch it to the other audio track.

This is useful knowledge for people who have surround sound systems. I usually encode it so that the audio track is Stereo by default, but most movie releases also come with a Surround sound setting, in case you want to take advantage of that.

Bikuu movie plug

Thought I'd plug the Bikuu movie again, since it seems like it's not getting a lot of downloads.

Let me assure you that it's a good movie. There's one flash of nudity and there's a lot of really great nightmarish imagery (which might be a positive or negative depending on what you like), but the characters and story are solid. And it's not just fan servicey. They really work to build this spin off from the world of Garo.

If you didn't like Bikuu from Makai no Hana or the appearance of the characters in Makai Retsuden, let me assure you that they're good here. We wouldn't sub a making-of segment to a movie that wasn't worth it.

Even better, if you're not a fan of Garo, it stands on its own as an interesting tokusatsu movie.You don't need to watch Makai no Hana to understand this movie.


Garo -Makai Retsuden- 12?

Looks like Amazon Prime is streaming it. Maybe we can get a raw when they've posted the episode up. (It currently isn't listed, so there must be some delay between airing and streaming.)

Can't do Garo this week

Sorry for the letdown, but something happened to both our cappers this week. Guess we'll have to catch it when there's a Blu-ray release. Bummer.

Summer's here, how about practicing your Japanese?

Just wanted to plug the Japanese section of my blog. It's mostly reblogs of people's posts regarding Japanese language and culture, but there's definitely articles about tips for learning the language. And on the rare blue moon, I'll make a unique post to contribute.

It's summer, why not learn some Japanese?
