Someone Hardsubbed SMILE!

Post by Xanthos » Sep 15th, '09, 12:16

I mentioned in the SMILE thread that someone claimed that he will be releasing SMILE hardsubbed.

Apparently it's true. He just released episode 1 - 4 but sadly it's not in torrent format.

I'm not sure if I can post the link, if I can't, mod please remove the link.

And those who want it can PM me.

Mod Edit by XrayMInd:I compared the hardsub from the link with Stormy's subs. The subtitles are the same. I think they took the twitter ripped softsub and put their own credit on the filename

So, someone else has stolen the subs? BTW, Smile has been softsubed for a couple of weeks.

Mod Edit:The original post has been deleted, because the softsub is ripped/stolen from Stormy's subs.

I've merged the previous hardsub announcement thread into the overall SMILE discussion thread.

I just finished watching episode 9 and was so overwhelmed that I needed to say something here. SMILE is definitely a powerful drama which shows us the ugly side of Japan which many J-Entertainment fans fail to see.

Japan is the country with extreme racism and discrimination against foreigners. To the point that there are many restaurants and onsens that bans non "pure japanese" from entering or patronizing. A fact that I have been telling many people to their disbeliefs.

Abit of googling can bring you more info regarding the racial discrimination issue in Japan.


Another issue the drama brought up is (I have to put it in the spoiler)
The flaws of a Jury Trial (Which my country abolished years ago) and how having a group of ordinary people to decide on the verdict is not as fair as many believe.
Now for the light hearted opinion.

Initially I thought having Aragaki Yui, who has a cute voice, not to speak will be extremely disappointing. But it's actually a plus point. Since she is unable to speak, everything had to be done by her facial expression which leads to her character being EXTREMELY cute.

I was biting my nails and breathing hard during the trial. And when Hana-chan spoke for the first time in court it totally blew me away. I kinda expect her to speak at least once during the series and thought it'll most likely be the finale. The first words happening in court totally took me by surprise (and of course losing it almost immediately made me sad)
Jun's performance is definitely Oscar standard. After watching countless JDramas by Jun, this is by far his best performance ever.

I don't think i'll ever forget SMILE.

@ Xanthos
been there, done that!
junxaragaki is something to be WOOTed for! wootwoot! :w00t:
and gakky is really REALly cute in SMILE
ive felt that way too, and yeah, tht kind of trial is def. not as fair as it seems
people are quite easy to be influenced and misjudge others and the fact tht they lacked the key knowldge in truly deciding/looking into a case could worsen the misinterpretation
anyway, SMILE :thumright:

It's been awhile since a dorama left such a deep impression on me. Well written, well acted dorama.

I don't know where to find subs :(
I can't join the arashi forums of stormy since I'm not an arashi fans and the other one requires me to be VIP. I hope someone can help me with this :(

Yup, totally agree with you.

Did anyone download the OST? Is it just me or is the guitar only version of Ariamaru Tomi we can hear several times during the drama missing? Does anyone else manage to have it by chance?

Finding the sub for this drama cause me real headache
The hardsub torrent is hardly alive, the softsub on vixox or whatever is closed.

Anyone looking for the sub on 2012, safe your time.
Just look for the italian sub then translate with google
