Oooh! really looking forward to this! I don't know why, but I really really like Shota! He's a good actor, must take after his brother (whom I also adore, he did a great job as Ren in NANA)!

Also; the plot sounds interesting and it will be nice to see him have a more central role. Not to mention that Erika plays here too, and she's great!

I'm excited about this one. I wasn't initially, but now I am! It looks really good.

And now that I don't really dislike Toda Erika anymore (I did after seeing her as Umi in HYD2.. but then I saw Nobuta and THnK and kinda liked her in those dramas.. so my burning hate died.. lol), I'm looking forward to seeing her in a new drama. Same goes for Shota. I'm not a big fan of his, but he's an interesting actor.
Currently watching: Cinderellas Sister, Prosecutor Princess, Personal Taste, Sunao ni Narenakute, Tsuki no Koibito

I've been waiting for about a month for someone to announce they were subbing this and I still haven't heard anything. I want to see this so badly though. I love Shota so much.

Sorry to tell everyone this, but siantut, due to copyright laws in Japan(she lives in Japan), won't be subbing any jdramas from now on since consequences of subbing is a bit drastic in Japan.

Subtitling and the Market Forces

Post by dragonpoetry » Apr 7th, '07, 20:09

No, they don't think of fansubbing all over the world. In fact, they'd really like to stamp it out if they could.

I do think that the companies putting the production money into these dramas are not well-served by then hiring Joe's Subtitling & Ura Video Shack to do the "official" translations and subtitles. There is nothing to turn off a potential fan (and market!) faster than subtitles that make little or no sense in the target language. ("Backstroke of the West" comes to mind --that's the translated title for a bad Revenge of the Sith translation copy)

Yet, if they could spend very little extra and get decent translations for the videos from people who speak the language idiomatically in both the original language and the target, they'd grow a market.

What they worry about is quite obviously NOT the translation. No, what they are worried about is the loss of revenue due to file sharing. I argue that if they'd just give us clever translations and then make it available to download for a price, they'd have serious bank rolling in.

Just think about the ability to pick and choose from ANY asian/foreign drama with subtitles done on the quality level that amrayu and company did for Hana Yori Dango (have I said thank you for that? Thank you!). Gives me chills of pleasure just thinking about being able to get that without feeling like I'm a customer at a Speakeasy*.

I hope that Liar Game DOES get translated. I am SO looking forward to that one.

--dragonpoetry

*Speakeasy - in the 1920's in the USA, alcohol was outlawed through federal laws. After alcohol was made illegal, small private clubs sprang up to offer alcohol to the masses for a price. Police would often raid these clubs as they found them. You'd have to know someone who was a member to get access to the club, and then they were found in back alleys and required special passwords and knowledge to get in. When Prohibition was repealed, the clubs vanished.

Of course, now we have the Pot Runners that maintain databases and pin codes and use runners to deliver your weed to your home. I kid you not.

Aww, that's too bad indeed. I also read in siantut's forum that she especially called the TV Network just to confirm their stand on the issue; I really appreciate her for doing that. I just hope that another fansubber who doesn't live in Japan will pick this up, since it seems like a quite interesting drama.

Can't wait to see this since I love psychological thrillers. Not to mention that Toda Erika is in this as well as Shota. Hope to see some improvement in acting.

Well, about copyright laws...

I heard that siantut is going to write detailed reports about the episodes on her website. The thing about fansubs is that you are producing your own work off of copyrighted material. (at least in Japan...) I think that siantut is doing a really smart thing. I wouldn't mind watching episodes raw and then reading about the pieces I didn't understand. Whenever I read subs, I can get distracted and its hard to enjoy. I am actually looking forward to siantut's reviews.

Hi all.

I am joinning this forum for this series. I am super excited about it because I have read the manga since day one. It's too bad the manga is not translated into English cause even though the art is kind of sucky, it's really quite good.

I am just wondering if anyone here can translate the psychology lesson on the LiarGame website. It looks very interesting.

ps
If anyone know Chinese, then they don't have to worry about subbing cause a group already announced the project.

i'm watching this just for toda erika ^_^.

phew lucky someone is subbing this in chinese! i've been getting most of my drama fixes from btpig or clubbox anyway, english subs take too long to be released...

Personally, I think LiarGame is very different from an episodic show like Kurosagi. But that's for you to decide when you do watch the show.

I wrote a long post detailing some of the differences, but the reply system ate the post up. :cussing:

For the love of God, the actress's name is Toda Erika! Umi is just the name of the character she played in HYD2. There is a difference between the two!

That said, I'm really looking forward to Liar Game tonight. I can't wait to see Matsuda Shota in a role other than Soujirou - even though he looked absolutely horrid on the Iitomo Spring SP. If done well, this drama can be really good. I hope it doesn't turn out like the cheesy mess that was Kurosagi.

ETA: To the people who have read the manga, is there any romance between the two leads?

^ Exactly. Her name is Toda Erika. She wasn't born Umi, intent on destroying Domyouji and Makino's relationship. LOL...and why should you 'hate' it if they were together? :blink

I'm really looking forward to Liar Game, since Toda Erika and Matsuda Shota are two of my favourites :) It's good that there will be Chinese subs, but even so, they're sometimes very inaccurate cause they go in for speed instead of accuracy, and I would really like someone to pick this up for English subs... so I'll keep on hoping!

As for Japan's copyright laws, I agree with dragonpoetry that it would work if Japan would only see the benefits of hiring good people (possibly fansubbers) to work on their TV serials and produce high-quality subtitles that can be bought legally, but, as usual, the industry isn't half as smart as the viewers...so...we'll just have to wait and hope they wise up soon ;)

The plot sound interesting, so it cant be too bad
i'm looking forward to this drama~~(Mainly Because of Toda)
First notice her in Engine, but she was great in Gal Circle & Death Note...
But the cast seems kinda weak...I mean just having Erika in it...

Same thing happen to "Akane" with just Maki Horikita starring in it, a horrible 8.72 rating, but the main reason is probably becos of the boring plot(even thou that was also based off a manga)

Even thou, dont really like shota, but i am really looking forward to see him wearing that funny wig~! =D

Just saw it on Tv,
It watches likes kurosagi, but with weirder lighting and ambience. The shows flow is a little weird, but okay. After the first ep, I am on the fence on this one, gonna have to see where it goes from here, but yeah, feels like something done before.

First game is your very normal swindling that we are all used to and that you see in Kurosagi, but when you get to game 2 and game 3, the games become very unique and intersting. Game 1 << game 2 and game 3.
Game 2 is a minority game (people vote, minority votes win, people who voted with majority loses).

Game 3 is a majority game (odd number of people has 5 votes each, after 10 rounds, all people win except for the person with least votes, oh you get a check book too to buy and sell things).

Winners have to go into the next round. Losers... well they are in heavy debt. You have to pay half of what you won to get out of the game, if you want.

The process of winning is what's fun to watch. Lots of psychology. Lots of teaming up. Lots of betrayals.

I just saw the first ep too... It has very low-budget feel to it (and probably is because it's at 11PM), and acting was very bad.

Kind of interesting story though, I'll keep watching just for Toda Erika :lol

do they use the same puppet as in the english movie SAW?? lol..

i think this movie has some "SAW" elements in it.. in SAW some random people are put in the game where they have to try survice.. in Liar Game.. erika randomly gets money and plays a game... also the puppets are similar!!

what do you think??

I saw the first episode.. and I thought it was pretty good.. :scratch: :thumleft:

It did have that Kurosagi feel to it (which I stopped watching after the first episode), but I thought it was a lot better and I'm looking forward to watching the next episode.

and I liked the camera effects used.

I just finish watching the first episode. It was much better than I thought it would be. I was only watching this for Erika Toda, but the story is quite engaging. The show is pretty low-budget, but the story make up for it. The show is very fast and doesn't waste too much time on details which might be a problem later on, but for now it's good. Hopefully we will get full 45 minutes from here on out. Good start.

12.3% is an incredibly high rating. This show was aired on 11:10PM on 45 min new timeslot. Not the hottest time for getting ratings. Go Toda Erika! :notworthy:

Hmm, not that incredibly high... (Afterall Saturday, is a new time slot for Fuji drama)
But its definitely not a bad rating at all(since its at 11)~
Hope the rating will be raising~

btw, joudan jyanai got 19.4 =.= Was a little disappointed, expected higher...

I've finished the first episode. It held my interest throughout, which is good, and Matsuda Shota looked hot, which is even better :D That said, I love the opening credits with the two sofas, and the camera effects and all didn't affect me at all. Currently it seems rather simplistic, but I'm sure it'll get more interesting later on, so I'll keep watching :)

quite the budget show...considering there are hardly any 'extras' in the film at all. if you notice, u only always see toda erika and one another character she is interacting with in the shoot...

as for the first episode, i'm not overly impressed, shouta's plan to get back the money sounds rather stupid if u ask me. So he is intimidating the old man to return the $$, couldn't anyone have thought of that?

I personally wouldn't stay to watch the show because of the storyline. But everytime I see toda erika pulling a sad face or smile, it just really makes the whole thing worth it :).

And in response to someone's comment about nudity - no way! Erika is only 19 :O...

just watched first ep too. average drama so far, but the cast is too good to just drop it from the first ep lol
is it just me or does toda erika get prettier each time she appears in a new drama? :whistling:

but i wonder what the storyline will be like once she gets her money back from the guy. is it going to be another kurosagi where a new game player appears and she has to steal money from them again? (i NEVER watch the trailers at the end of the episode because i think they give away WAY too much information/spoilers)

I thought it was average too. It was a really typical plot but for some reason I liked it a lot. Maybe it's because I love the genre (I love love love Kurosagi....) and the cast. :D I will definitely continue to watch! Erika does get prettier! And I noticed...the colors are really saturated in this drama!

Didn't realize the show airs on a late time slot!

Low budget feel, but I honestly enjoyed the episode. It might not have been mind blowing, but it would be interesting to see how the rest of the game would be played. I am expecting to see more consequences to their actions.

I really liked the opening credits. I liked the background and the contrast between black and red. :)

Not so crazy about Shota's hair though.

I agree! I enjoyed the episode, I think it's quite different from other shows I've watched so far, and I'm really impatiently waiting for the next episode!

I'm not crazy about Shota in general... hahaha~ And I agree, his hair's just not that great. But I still loooove Erika ^^

I caan't wait =( Someone spare meeeeee

Not impressed also,
I'm afraid the plot won't be that interesting, I feel the main interest is going to be how smart/cool he is and how cute/innocent she is, well anyway I'm not going to drop it right now, I've been waiting too long for it ^o^v

This actually looks pretty interesting. At least the first episode managed to keep my interest alive. Here's hoping that the pacing picks up. -crosses fingers-

Toda Erika looked so gorgeous in that red dress!

i think this movie has some "SAW" elements in it.. in SAW some random people are put in the game where they have to try survice.. in Liar Game.. erika randomly gets money and plays a game... also the puppets are similar!!

what do you think??
yeah, looks like the same puppet on "Saw", which kept making me flash back to "Saw Three" that I watched 3 months ago, so it makes episode one end up not so interesting for me and I think because of that darn puppet....so I just decided not to watch it anymore

I actually don't like the lead female...what's her name? Toda Erika? Anyways, I think it must be from HYD2 plus I don't really think she can act, she does the same thing in all the movies/dramas I see her in. I'm gonna give this drama some more time though, I think it's too early to judge just from the first episode.

Episode 2 hasn't even aired yet, but episode 1's already been hardsubbed and released. Talk about record speed, lol. I think this series is okay so far. They seemed to cram a lot into the first episode, but it didn't feel very exciting or as interesting as it could have been. Hopefully it gets better.

Matsuda Shota isn't part of KAT-TUN, but yeah, he's a looker.

The manga is up to ep. 34 (or 35), just about 4 volumes. The 1st episode already covered half of vol. 1; at this rate, the drama may have to come up w/ original material after about ep. 8. As someone has already pointed out, the 1st 'game' is not very interesting but gets much better with subsequent ones, w/ quite a bit more logic and psychology involved.

I LOVED it!
It was so cool~ :thumright:
The plot is really good and intresting and the music and the atmosphere was really suitable.

And of course Toda Erika and Matsuda Shota played very good as well.
I was so sad that the ep was shorter than usuall a I wait impatiencely to the next ep!~ :cheers:

Thought it'd be really good because of the actors, but the storyline is so easy to predict. I've probably guess about 10 things that were going to happen before they did in episode one and I got them all right.

Eh.

Since when has being honest meant being ridiculously gullible?

Other than that, this seems interesting enough.

Seriously! And I think you're putting it kindly. "Stupid" is the word I would have used.

She is baka shoujiki for good reasons.

That's why in my opinion, translating it as too honest for her own good is an understatement. No, no she is stupidly/idiotically honest (in my version of the sub -- http://download.yousendit.com/0731B93858475A33
).
