Toy Wars – 01 [720p]

[BuriBuri] Crayon Shin-chan Spin-off – Toy Wars – 01 [720p][2B8493BB].mkv

At last, a new release! I present episode one of the second spin-off series, Toy Wars!

I’m not sure if Amazon ever plans on releasing this series internationally with English subtitles, but for now I’m going to start subbing it. Like with Alien vs Shinnosuke, if they ever do release subs, I’ll go back and make a v2 of my releases.

Note to any Non-English fansubbers: Feel free to use my video/subs, but please credit me. I don’t hardsub anything on my videos so that you’re able to use them, but at least have some decency and link back/credit me. Thanks!

In other news, I’ve also updated my torrent link at the top to nyaa.si. All my torrents are still there, but are currently unseeded. I’ll start the reseeding process soon!

For this to only be seven minutes long, there’s quite a bit of translation notes that follow. Be sure to check them out!

May 2017 Updates

Hey, guys. Sorry that it’s been a while since my last release and update. Spring is a busy time here in Japan — there’s the end of the school year, spring break, the start of the new school year, and Golden Week too — so I’ve been really busy since March!

In the land of fansubbing, the past month or so have been quite a fuss with nyaa going down and now being replaced with a new nyaa. My old torrents are still out there as magnets, but I don’t plan on retorrenting anything quite yet. Everything is on our XDCC bot if you need something.

Anyway, here’s what I’m currently working on/coming soon.

  1. Movie 24 – Fast Asleep! The Great Assault on Dreamy World
    • I’ve decided to go ahead and work on this. I’m half way through with my initial translation at the moment, but it will take me a couple of passes through the movie before it’s ever ready for release.
  2. Spin-off Season 2 – Toy Wars
    • I have the Amazon raws and captions for this series now, so I’m planning on working on it soon. Given the run time of it, it’s like doing another movie but in smaller chunks. I might do single episode releases of this.
  3. Music
    • I’ve also started a project of collecting Shin-chan CDs. I bought five or six Shin-chan related CDs the other day and have ripped them. I’m just trying to figure out how I want to release them.
  4. RAWS
    • I also have been pondering the idea of releasing RAWs. Over the past few years now, I’ve amassed a pretty decent collection of Shin-chan RAWs/DVDs/TS files. Let me know if you guys would be interested in me releasing these. It will involve a lot of encoding, but Shin-chan RAWs aren’t nearly as accessible as other series.

I think that about wraps up what I’ve been working on. I really want to get back to normal episodes sometime soon, but I’m not sure when that will happen.

We have a Discord server now, so if you want to help out or just hang out and chat, feel free to join us.

Special 14 [480p]

[BuriBuri] Crayon Shin-chan – Special 14 [480p][2694A582].mkv

Man, I feel like I’ve been working on this for ages. Sorry that it’s been so long since the last release. Anyway, today, I bring you special 14 featuring (spoiler) the birth of Shin’s sister, Himawari.

This special also gives us a quick look at all our favorite characters from the series including the saleslady from hell, the bookshop keepers, the Scorpions, Action Mask, Kuntam Robo, Buriburizaemon, and a whole lot more. I’m not sure how they managed to pack them all into it, but they did.

I’m planning on subbing the two episodes that follow this special, episodes 203 and 204, but I’m not sure if those will be the next releases or not.

There are some weird puns in this episode. One of the more obscure ones is Hiroshi punning on post-pregnancy and coral. Both are “sango” in Japanese. Also, when Shin gives Misae the paper red lily, she reacts in that way because red lilies are associated with death — how sweet. Nene’s Mommy Seven is an obvious reference to Ultra Seven, an Ultraman series.

I’m also looking for staff to help sub this with me. I potentially need another translator, timers, and QC’ers. I know my releases aren’t perfect, but since it’s currently just me, it’s the best I can do. I’m hoping that with some help, we can make these not only better, but be able to release more as well.

Special 11 [480p]

[BuriBuri] Crayon Shin-chan – Special 11 [480p][88602A78].mkv

The Adventures of Buriburizaemon: The Soaring Chapter / The Adventures of Buriburizaemon: The Lightning Chapter / Dramatic Crayon Shin-chan / Shiro is Also a Lot of Work / The Monkey-Crab Battle / Dramatic Crayon Shin-chan 2

I had most of the translation done for this special done back in May of last year, and for reasons, it just sat unfinished until now! With Buriburizaemon reappearing last year, I wanted to tackle the older episodes, and these two segments were the first I got my hands on.

The Soaring Chapter and the Lightning Chapter are both from the mind of Masaaki Yuasa, famed now for his other works such as Mind Game, Kaiba, the Tatami Galaxy, and Ping Pong (among others). However, back in the 90s, he was mainly an animator for Shin-chan! These two segments are entirely in his style and tone. They’re hilarious and entirely the reason I decided to do special 11. The other segments in this special are nothing to write about, but the Buriburizaemon ones are beyond fantastic and hysterical.

The source of this is from a TV reairing so everything is intact. It originally aired on December 25, 1995.

There’s some TL notes that I still need to write, but I thought I’d go ahead and release this. Just a note until I get the notes written, the Monkey-Crab Battle is based off an old Japanese tale and references many other old tales within the segment. Dramatic Shin-chan has a lot of jokes/puns that weren’t that easy to translate, while the second part is all about an end-of-the-year lottery that actually does occur in Japan (thus most people are aware of how it functions), so it’s not the easiest to follow either.

Anyway, enjoy! Not sure what my next release will be. Maybe I’ll look at redoing some more of the KIKU subbed episodes. The other Buriburizaemon episodes by Yuasa are on the table too.

Episode 008 [DVD]

Going for a Walk with Shiro / Building Shiro’s House / I Hate Green Peppers

Now back to your (ir)regularly schedule TV episodes. With Shiro’s introduction in episode 007, episode 008 shows Shin becoming better acquainted with his new found friend. In this episode, we are also introduced to Shin’s hatred of green peppers.

This episode also marks my first release that includes the original next episode preview. Akai Shuichi was kind enough to purchase the memorial DVD box, so I’m now able to encode from that release. Sadly, the video quality isn’t any different between the normal DVDs and that DVD box :\

Some TL notes follow!

Alien vs Shinnosuke BATCH [720p]

[BuriBuri] Crayon Shin-chan Spin-off – Alien vs Shinnosuke [720p][BATCH]

And here is the final batch of the first spin-off series, Alien vs Shinnosuke.

As I mentioned before, episodes 01-05 have received updated versions. Episodes 01 and 02 have new encodes, while all five episodes have had changes done to the subtitles.

With this finally fully completed, I can move on to something else. I’m not planning to do the second spin-off series, Toy Wars, at this time. Maybe sometime down the road. For now, I’ll be returning to doing some normal TV episodes (or specials).

“To Earth”

And here were are — the final episode of Alien vs Shinnosuke. Will Shinnosuke defeat the Buttlien? Will the spaceship explode with the Noharas still onboard? Will they ever make it back to Kasukabe?

Want to thank Akai-Shuichi for helping me with getting the video for this last episode!

As I mentioned previously, I will be releasing new versions of the first five episodes. The first two episodes will be getting new encodes, while 3-5 will just be getting some script changes. These v2s will be released in a batch of the entire series. I’m not sure when I’ll get these out, but hopefully within the next week or so.

I hope you guys have enjoyed this ride. I know there was quite a long break there for awhile, but I’m glad I was able to finish this up.
