1 year after we started and 1 year after the series premiered in Japan we finally wrap this thing up. We understand the wait must have been tough for you guys, but you have to trust us when we tell you it was worth it. Basically every moment the TL for this project wasn’t working on it he was studying to improve his Japanese skills, and in the past year that’s meant about a 10x improvement in translation speed.
This last episode of Angel Bank is pretty amazing. Kosuke Suzuki guest stars and shines as usual. The man is such a good actor whether he’s playing a kind of deranged villain character like Fukunaga in Liar Game or a rookie detective in a show like Keibuho Yabe Kenzo. We were really excited to see him pop up again in this show.
This episode is a little more plot heavy with regards to Mamako, but the Job Change of the Week is also very well done. They managed to end the series on one of the most important issues facing Japanese society in the modern day. I’m not sure it leaves very much open for a second go-round, but that’s okay. This show was really interesting with the 8 episodes it got, and it’s a very interesting depiction of Japanese culture.
Not very many Japanese shows are this self-aware about tackling some of the unfortunate problems that arise in Japanese society from time to time. It was nice to see a show like this that at times almost bordered on being a public service announcement, maintain an appropriate level of dramatic tension. It’s these kinds of interesting niche shows that inspire us to do what we do. We can definitely promise you that there’s more in the works after this.
The batch torrent will probably take a bit longer than usually as I want to change some minor things in the earlier eps. I’m still seeding ep 1-7 on my seedbox though so this shouldn’t matter too much. Just grab the singles instead of waiting for a batch.
DDL for ep 1-7:
Thanks to all the members of HaroRangers that made this possible through their TL’ing, QC’ing, Timing, Encoding, etc.
