I lied. I said I wouldn’t sub this, but here I am, and I have.
Episode 1 began streaming on Amazon Prime Video today in Japan. When I first clicked on it, I was surprised to see it’s only eight minutes long. It makes sense, since typical Shin-chan segments are indeed only eight minutes or so. But to be honest, I was expecting a full-length 24 minute episode. Anyway, the short run time coupled with my liking of the episode drove me to go ahead and sub this for you guys.
Sadly, there’s no word from Amazon on when the official English release may be coming. Perhaps after all 13 episodes have been released in Japan? Still, that’s months away!
I’m not entirely sure if I’m committing to subbing the full series or not. Amazon Prime doesn’t have captions like new TV episodes or movies do, so I’m left translating it by ear. I was lucky enough with the simple dialog in this episode, but I can’t count on that for every episode. I also will have to purchase an Amazon.co.jp Prime subscription. I started a trial previously, and it luckily lasted until today. So yeah, for the moment, not sure if I will continue with this, as much as I do like it so far.
Note to any other Non-English fansubbers: If you want to use my video and script, you can, but please credit me. I don’t watermark or hardsub my releases for this reason, so at least do me that courtesy. Thanks!
