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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hey, guys! Sorry for the lack of updates and releases for the past month or so. The end of the year is a busy time, so I haven’t had as much time as I’d like to work on Shin-chan stuff. However, I thought I’d update you guys on what’s potentially coming up next.
So I was waiting on getting a translation check done for movie 23 since January, but I’ve now realized that’s never going to happen. I’m pretty happy with the script, so I currently have a few people QC’ing/looking over it for errors and then I’ll release it. Maybe around New Years?
Alien vs Shinnosuke:
Amazon has recently uploaded Alien to their European PrimeVideo site with English subs. They’re definitely passable, but a bit too heavy on the localization (Tanaka was changed to Smith, for example). I’ll be editing these and releasing them for archiving-sakes. Episode six will be coming very soon, followed by the rest of the series. I’m going to be v2’ing episodes 1-5 after I finish 6-13, and then a complete batch will be released.
So I’ve started translating movie 24 already as well. This won’t be coming anytime soon, but it is being worked on. I have no ETA on this at all, so please don’t ask me.
And that’s about it for main updates. I haven’t forgotten the normal TV episodes or specials either. I have a few of those in the works too, but nothing to really update you guys on in particular. Hopefully I’ll get some of this stuff to you guys really soon!
So earlier this year, Amazon Prime Japan added the entire catalog of Shin-chan movies to its Prime Video streaming service. Today, Amazon has announced that they are producing an original Shin-chan series entitled “The Alien vs Shinnosuke” that will only appear on Amazon Prime Video.
It’s slated for 13 episodes, with a new episode airing each week starting on August 3rd. ANN is reporting that the series will be streaming outside of Japan, but perhaps at a later date.
Since an official release is planned, I will not be subbing this, but I implore you guys to check out this new series on Amazon. It’s the first time Shin-chan has been truly released subtitled in English (or I’m assuming it will be subbed!).
The series will be directed by Michio Mihara, who has previously worked on Shin-chan and multiple projects with the famed Masaaki Yuasa (Tatami Galaxy, Ping Pong, Kaiba, et al.) and Satoshi Kon (Paranoia Agent, Paprika, et al). He has a great resume, so I’m looking forward to see what he’ll do with this new series! You can follow him on Twitter! He’s previously posted a ton of concept art for the newest Shin-chan movie, and he’s already started to post things about this new series!
So next Friday, on May 13th, Buriburizaemon returns to Shin-chan for the first time in 16 years! Buriburizaemon’s voice actor sadly passed away in 2000, so the character, who was prominent throughout the 90s’ episodes, hasn’t appeared since. But now he’s back!
So I haven’t been able to sub any of the Buriburizaemon episodes yet, so I am going to make this my first. I know I’m behind on the current episodes, and I apologize. I’ve just been extremely busy. However, I am excited about this episode next week, so I’m going to proclaim this now:
I will be subbing next week’s episode. It might take me a bit, but I’m going to go ahead and jump to that episode. I’m sorry for those who want to see everything, but I would rather work on something that interests me more than simply forcing myself through every episode.
Hey, guys. I’ve made my move, started my new job, and finally have internet once again. It’s been a busy few weeks for me, but I’m getting through it all.
Coincidentally and luckily, Shin-chan has actually been off-air this entire time. I still need to sub episode 889 which aired shortly before I left, but episode 890 actually doesn’t air until April 15th! Let’s see if I can get 889 out before then!
Movie 24 is also coming out soon on April 16th, and I’ve already ordered my ticket as you see in the image above. The BD for the movie won’t be out until November, most likely, and in the meantime, I need to get Movie 23 done! It’s still at translation check, but I’ll do some poking to see if I can get it moving.
Concerning older episodes, once I really get into a normalized schedule with my job, I’ll try to see if I can throw some older episodes into my workload. I know you guys really look forward to those, just as much as I like working on them, so no need to worry about me abandoning them.
Anyway, thanks for all the comments you guys have been leaving. It really helps knowing that all the work that goes into this is appreciated. So please keep commenting, and I’ll try my best to get subs out to you regularly. 😀
Hey, guys, I thought I would make a post asking for some help and give you an update on what we’re working on.
First up, I’m in desperate need of a translation checker. I’m looking for someone that is experienced who can help me with some of the tougher lines and jokes. convex has been kind enough to work on the movies with me, but for the TV episodes, I think I need someone else. As you can see below, I do have some episodes nearly done, but I do not want to release them without having the translation gone over by someone else first.
Secondly, I’m looking for HDTV RAWs. I know there’s a ton out of there, but I’ve only been able to grab a small handful of them. All I’ve come up with is hardsubbed Chinese and Vietnamese fansubs, and I don’t want to work from those. If you have any HD episodes, please contact me so I can sub them!
I’m not in a huge need of DVD ISOs at the moment, but if you have some to offer, get a hold of me, and we’ll talk. I already have a decent size collection that I’ve obtained from ADC, Share, and PD.
Any help will be greatly appreciated! Just leave a comment here or find me on Rizon under the nick Skr. I hang out in #Shindou-Anime.
