Carranger 16

Keeping things moving along in the name of traffic safety, here’s episode 16!

Observant viewers will notice the signs in Signalman’s Kobaan base referring to the “Bowzock” – which as we’ve explained a little previously, we elected to translate differently. Since this is a good time to do so, we’ll explore this choice and our reasoning in a little more depth in another post, which will shortly follow this one. Here it is~ 

A few other things about this episode – The outfit JJ Jetton wears when he’s studying with Professor Richhiker is an old-fashioned (pre-war) Japanese schoolboy outfit. Its Western equivalent would be going to school in a mortarboard hat (now called graduation caps, since otherwise you never wear them).

Also, when Signalman is berating Professor Richhiker while he’s in jail, you may wonder why the Professor has what looks like a handkerchief tied over his head. This cartoony costuming is Japanese shorthand for “this character is a thief,” basically. Its Western equivalent is having a character show up in a black-and-white striped prison suit, carrying a big sack of money over one shoulder.

    Hello, I have a question about the GTO Live Action, are you still doing it, or did you dropped it? It’s now for a long time since you’ve released the first episode.
