I just finished subbing episode 10 and I got the words for the opening song (well most of it anyway). The one I uploaded is Superjakko's version because everyone was waiting for soooooooo long. Here's my thought, no one has done the opening or ending karaoke for this series and I was wondering if anybody cared to see it or not. I'm currently looking for the ending lyrics so I can do them too. I guess I could just listen very carefully and write them out myself. I know jakko's versions are good but it's a translation of a translation and he only has up to episode 12. I am working to learn Japanese (I know I am Japanese) but I was never taught by my parents. I understand a little (very little) but after 12 there maybe a little break until we can find translators (or I get fluent in Japanese). I am doing all I can do to try to get the series current (I been looking for translators) because I do have the raws up to 18. While I'm doing that I just wanted to know if anyone wanted to see the karaoke since I won't be able to translate (not perfectly) for a few months. So anyway, this is the first post and I wanted to see how active this group can be so people, post away.

google translater will only translate kanji, hiragana, and katakana and will not translate romaji. Since I can't read most kanji and my computer doesn't write in kanji, the google translator does no good. Plus it will not translate into correct grammar and also doesn't give you a clear meaning of what they are trying to say.

I have 9-12 translated into Chinese and when I use something like google and bablefish to translate it turns out like this.....

episode 10
Dialogue: 0,0:07:36.20,0:07:39.20,*Default,NTP,0000,0000,0000,,Yamomato that fellow has probably moved a place or Yamamoto, the guy seems to also move some local bar

The first translation is from bablefish and the second one is from google. Superjakko I think had it translated to "Yamamoto has made some more modifications, huh?" I think I had it translated at "Yamamoto seem to have taken it to the next level" at least that what I could tell from looking some of the words up in a romaji to english dictionary.

Not only will the grammar be incorrect but the translation of the word might not be exactly how it was meant. I work with people from Japan and he was trying to ask me if the file (on the computer) that he was going to give me was "too heavy". A file on the computer has no weight, but in his mind that is what it would literally be translated to. In my mind, I had to translate the english that he gave me into "is the file too much of a load or too big for my computer". That's why I'm looking for anyone that can speak both languages while I learn myself.

I have already tried to contact people on some of the Wangan fourms and there are some people willing to help out as soon as I get the DVDs. There are 12 movies in all. As soon as I can afford the DVDs, I will get them ripped and then we can get them subbed. I have the one that was on veoh and it's very low quality so I will try to start to translate it with that but won't upload it until we get a better quality video.
