- nyaa (the trackers of the nyaa torrents which I originally used are now dead, but the DHT should still work)
Lol... Try nyaa pantsu, acgnx, or searching elsewhere for "inpei sousa" (or 은폐수사 since filenames might be in korean) on places that indexed nyaa stuff >_>
(Tracker stats may not be reliable and may wrongly list them as inactive. Just give them a try and wait.)
Also, some signs might look a little bit awful if "madvr" isn't your video renderer. If using vlc, signs might be slightly off position ._.
Episode 8 only seems to be available as 480p. If anyone knows of a 720p version, please let me know and I will sub to that =)
I hope everyone who wanted to watch this kept the files from way back, but otherwise, try nyaa. My connection’s kinda dodgy and I don't have the space to seed a batch, but I’ll try to seed each episode for roughly 1 week from sub release or until subs for the next episode are released...
Big thanks to all seeders. =D
If someone already has copies of Inpei Sousa, feel free to upload new torrents (batch or otherwise); let me know so I can update the info here.
Special thanks to:
- semi-fly (and whoever re-up’d to nyaa) – for the raws
jpsubbers – for the JP subs
Pétalo - for script analysis
d-addicts – for just in general ^^
Boring message from me
Wow... it’s totally not 2014 anymore...
Anyway, if you like police dramas that are mostly serious, have a little “physical action”, and a lot more “manoeuvring”, then maybe this is the one for you! (And if you really really like this, you can always get the DVD, heh ;-)
Please let me know of any errors/issues/feedback/criticism/etc.
As this series has a significant focus on the various levels of the JP police hierarchy, I’d highly suggest checking out the notes/links below if you’re not too familiar with it...
And now, here come the TL notes!
You shouldn’t need them to understand the subs as I tried to keep the script as smooth-flowing as possible, but perhaps they might help you get a better feel for the series.
General police info:
- Table of Ranks (extended!); Rank Insignia; MPD Organization; NPA Organization; What the various departments do
Misc. Vocab. (updated as of episode 7)
- Emergency deployment (kinkyuu-haibi). Refers to various levels of increased efforts by the police to catch criminals shortly after a crime happens. Get's abbreviated to "kinpai", but I'll just call it a "dragnet".
Emergency arrest (kinkyuu-taiho). Warrants are needed to make arrests in Japan. However, there are two methods of "warrantless arrest". One is when police catch criminals red-handed. The other is the "emergency arrest" which happens where there is reasonable ground to suspect someone of committing a serious enough offense and there is no time to apply for a proper warrant (police still need to apply for a retroactive warrant immediately following arrest, though).
Communications Command HQ (tsuushin-shirei-honbu), i.e. police dispatch. The central police dispatch which also processes "110 calls" is usually based at the prefectural police HQ (ambulance and fire is "119"). For Tokyo, it would be the "Communications Command Center" at the MPD HQ.
Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. Formerly known (until 2008) as the "Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport", from which it received the acronym "MLIT" which is still in use despite there being an "extra T" now.
- Kita = North
Minami = South
Higashi = East
Nishi = West
Chuuou (or “Chuo”) = Central
- Shimbun (or Shinbun) = Newspaper
Snack Bar: Typically a small-scale bar/pub run by a hostess. The keyword is bar, not snack: i.e. it's not the "concession stand" type of "snack bar".
Boat Race: Races involving small motor boats. This has more in common with horse racing than yacht racing. i.e. it's all about the bets.
Hagakure: The so-called "Book of the Samurai". Written in a time of relative peace, it offers a perspective on bushido and what it means to be a samurai amidst changing eras.
Akizuki Ryoumin: A Japanese Buddhist priest, Zen scholar, philosopher, and university professor (1921-1999).
Living National Treasure: Government acknowledgement of persons who greatly embody certain aspects of national cultural heritage (typically some manner of "craftsman" of master of some skill).
(major issues, like mistranslations, will be updated asap. Other minor tweaks will be in a batch at series end... if I ever get there ;-)
