Kita no Kuni kara [Eng Subs] (Ep 1-8 of 24)

Postby xploring » Fri Jun 12, 2009 4:06 am

http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Kita_no_Kuni_kara

These were provided by alanfish over here:
http://www.verycd.com/topics/2740617/

They originally include both Chinese and English subtitles in the same files.
Original bilingual subtitles (all 24 episodes): http://www.box.net/shared/0exay4y93z

Episode 1
I have gone through and deleted the Chinese subs, fixed a few typos and grammer mistakes, and shortened some long lines of dialogue by putting them in 2 or 3 lines. Hopefully nothing is missing and they work without problem.

Episode 2
I translated some of the lines missing in the English translation(from the Chinese subtitles), including the poem/writing by Miyazawa Kenji. It's probably not accurate but that's the best I could do. Also fixed some typos and punctuations. The English subs probably came from NGN broadcast, I think.

Episode 4
There were some missing lines and possibly 1-2 minutes of video is missing from the raw file. I don't have the raw file so I can't verify, but there were a few lines with no timing around the 17th minute mark. My discs (tv recordings) included some (additional) video that seemed to have been edited in, and I typed the dialogues during that segment into a 3 second subtitle slot, so you can pause to read about what went on when you get to it.

Episode 8

I had to guess the timing for the subtitles in the Tokyo scene, so it may be a bit off. What's written in the note around 17th minute mark, was not translated in the original bilingual subtitles.

Episode 2
I translated some of the lines missing in the English translation(from the Chinese subtitles), including the poem/writing by Miyazawa Kenji, but I didn't change any of the existing English subtitles, even though some of the Chinese and English subtitles differ in meaning. It's probably not accurate but that's the best I could do. Also fixed some typos and punctuations. The English subs probably came from NGN broadcast, I think.

Probably, but not quickly. You can always download the bilingual subtitles, it's almost the same as the edited ones.

The same site xploring said the original sub files came from also appears to have links for subtitles for the specials: http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_75256.htm . I am unable to read the Chinese to be able to navigate the pages and know if these also have English subtitles. Based on my guesses for the hanji, I don't think so. I also don't know how to download anything with an ed2k protocol to look at the files. Still, for someone who knows Chinese and could get the Chinese subs, it'd be a great fansub project with most of the timing work already done. :-)

It's been on my mind, but not sure when I will pick it up again... Of course, anyone is welcome to take over, I can provide a copy of my DVDs if someone agrees to take over editing/finishing this series.

I downloaded all the episodes from 1982 (episode1-24 and the all the specials thru the yuigon part 2, real good copies, I speak and understand Japanese fairly well for a native born american but cannot understand alot of the Hokaido dialect spoken and just have to guess at it.I would enjoy having the opportunity to send someone a copy of these to sub for all of the fans of D-addicts and "[u]Kita No Kuni Kara". I am not very computer savy about the technology of subbing but do enjoy downloading and watching.
Please if someone would like copies to sub for all of us,please post as to your intent of subbing and I will check back later for a response

xploring gave me his permission to take over this project,
so I'll sub this series starting from episode 9.

But I'll sub some of specials, Himitsu and Jidai first.
I'll post more information on my blog soon as well as
how to access to the raw.

I'll also post here when I start a new thread for episode 9.

Thank you for going to work on the subs. This way many more people can enjoy fine quality Nippon entertainment.
If you catch this note:
I have two older NHK drama's Taiheiki (1991)with Sanada Hiroyuki and Ōgon no Hibi (1978)
I would not know where to start translating. Yet they have Chinese titles on them. I would like for more people to enjoy and that would require english subs. Is there any way to grab the timed Chinese subs for over all translation, then I could go ahead and fix or listen for errors from original lang to the titled english.
