Water Boys season 1 [Eng Subs] (Complete)

Postby birtman » Mon Jun 13, 2016 11:39 pm

Hi! I started transcribing the subtitles from the jem rips of Water Boys. This is my first time posting subtitles, so I hope I do this right.

I timed the subtitles to the raws found here: https://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=754923.

Episode 11 is not seeded, so I don't have that one, but I'm nine episodes away from that, so hopefully there will be a seed by then. - Got it!

Update - June 30, 2016
I've made new versions of episodes 1-5. I realized the hardsub had Mr. Sugita's name as Mr. Yamada on some of the episodes and Daichi's name as Oji, so I fixed that. I also went back and added the titles of the episodes (credit to Dramawiki) and - for fun - added the cast onto the opening credits of the first episode.
Also, episodes 6-9 are up. I have all the subtitles transcribed now - just working on timing. :-)

Update - July 1, 2016
The project is complete!!

General Notes
- Subtitles were done by Transtar Media Services and transcribed from the hardsub capture by jem.
- I've changed the spelling of certain words from English to Amercian English (because it's what I'm used to). This basically means I've left out "u"s in words, "Mum" is "Mom," "metres" are "meters" - things like that. "Dreamt" is now "dreamed" and "learnt" is now "learned."
- I changed the use of the word "senior" into "senpai" in most instances. While "senior" or just the character's name are more correct in an English translation (based on a few things I've read) I feel that the word "senpai" flows more. It was mostly used when they talked with Sato (Tamaki Hiroshi) and "Senior Sato" is weird for me to read. There were some sentences where I kept it "senior" because I felt the flow was fine. (Just in case you don't know, "senpai" - in this instance - is an upperclassman.)
- Also, I changed the subs from "Shindo boy" to "Shindo-chan" much for the same reasons as changing "senior" to "senpai."
- While I changed "senior" to "senpai" and "Shindo boy" to "Shindo-chan," I kept the use of "Uncle" and "Auntie" the same instead of changing it to its Japanese counterparts. "Uncle" and "Auntie" are used when the boys talk to each other's parents.

Episode Notes
- Episode 3 - Around 11:48 to 12:10 - this was not in the jem capture. Tatematsu and Ishizuka are basically talking about the pretty girls in the magazine and then Tatematsu asks Shindo and Takahara to look at the magazine. I've been watching Japanese dramas for almost ten years, but I'm hardly proficient in Japanese, so while I'm positive this is what they're talking about, I didn't translate the lines because I'm not EXACTLY sure what they're saying.
- Episode 11 - Around 4:21 to 4:47 - this was not in the jem capture. I boldly translated the line about Tatematsu's father being Mamasan's first love (even though it wasn't in the jem broadcast) and Tatematsu's follow-up, "Really?" because I feel confident that's what they're saying, but I stopped there. The rest of what Mamasan's saying - I have no idea.

Dear birtman,

thanks for picking this up.
I happen to be the proud owner of softsubs for this drama.
Episode 1 and 2 are even in English, the rest in Korean (which I don't understand).
Here's episode 2-11 for you; they might help you with the timing which is always a lot of work.

Good luck.
