I thought I'd share a couple tips for everyone who is learning Japanese and struggles with reading Kanji subtitles (like me!) If you open up the .ssa file in any text program and then copy the text into this hirigana/romaji website: http://www.romaji.org/
, you can save the newly generated text as either ssa or txt and load it on your player as usual. The translations aren't perfect, but close enough!
I also use VLC media player and slow down the speed to .80 so I can keep up!~ It is especially helpful for unclear speech like Buzzer Beat's handsome mr. mumble mountain (Yamashita)
I'll attach a sample of Hirigana and romaji subs for Ep 1. Enjoy!!
