You’ll flip if you can figure out where I placed the geo location of this post.
Like most people, my first exposure was Power Rangers. Gokaiger was my first Super Sentai and my first weekly series. I heard about how they could summon all the rangers and was hooked. Fast forward to 2014, I still love this show. So much I made my own subtitles. I went into this project not knowing a thing about how subtitles work. I learned how to edit subtitles and put them together with video to make mkv files. I even put to use the Japanese course I took 13 years ago to translate some songs. Looking back, there are still a few inconsistencies I left behind, but they are insignificant enough to not make new versions.
Moving forward with Go-Busters, I should be able to work faster. I’ve learned lots of tricks for timing or typesetting should I need them. There’s less research to do since Go-Busters is not a reference heavy show. All the insert songs have already been translated. By the time this is posted, I should have a few episodes already done. Still, I plan on working backwards from episode 50 for consistency checks, so it will be a while until I start releasing some episodes.
Thanks for reading and enjoy Gokaiger. Stay tuned for Go-Busters.
