Waterboys Special (Summer 2005) [Eng Subs] (Complete)

Postby ppeatman » Mon Feb 19, 2007 7:45 pm

For almost two years now, the 2005 Summer Special of Waterboys have been without subtitles. Some fansub initiatives have been started in the past, but seem to have died long ago. But recently I got hold of some poor English subtitles, so I decided to share them with the people here since there are still regular requests for them. I did my best to synchronize the subtitles to the avi files that have been posted here. This wasn't as easy as I expected because there were several timing gaps, probably because of removed sponsor credits. Further I tried to brush up the english a bit. This was tricky business since I don't understand a single word of Japanese and I often had to guess for the correct meaning of the sometimes horrible english.

I know the result is far from perfect: the timing is not razor sharp (but bearable) and some of the translations are still poor or even completely wrong (but sufficient to follow the story). If you think you can do better, feel free to correct them.

Anyway, here are the subtitles. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks a lot. Has anyone ventured on editing the subs....even just corecting the spelling and/or adding punctuations?

Wow, I think it's rather funny that I found the subs at LJ before at d-addicts. And now I see that it orginated from here. Thanks so much for this.

One thing though: do you mind if I mind to do a version 2 using your subs? I feel that there are some areas that may benifit from improvements? >>PMing you right now<<

Thanks again for your hard work. I really thought that subbing for this drama was dead.

^^ Me too! I didn't even realize this was available until mariakikay bumped the thread up. I loved Water Boys so the chance to spend a little more time with those characters is irresistible. Thank you ppeatman!
