Ningen no Shoumei ep 3 DVD v2

Saturday, April 20th, 2013 by Drazic

And here’s another ep of the ningen v2’s, it’s still a low-priority project though so don’t expect ep 4 any time soon. If you’re in a hurry to watch the whole thing just grab the tv-rip versions we already released.

I’m curious if people even care about projects like this though. Do you re-watch/archive drama when versions with better raws/subs like this come available? The difference in image quality of the DVDs compared to the shitty tv-rips we used before is huge and it also contains a few new scenes now and then. Let me know in the comments! But so far it’s been a lot of work for something apparently just we care about.

All our releases are also available from a XDCC bot in our irc channel: #harorangers @ irc.rizon.net.

GTO 2012 episode 2

Monday, December 24th, 2012 by Drazic

So apparently soonish means more than a month! We’ll try to get the rest of the drama out faster though which doesn’t say much to be honest. It’d be weird if I went “Let’s go even slower!”.  Actually, I should totally do that so you won’t be dissapointed. Expect ep 3 to be out on or before Christmas 2013.

Meanwhile, have a merry christmas and hopefully we’ll be back with another ep before next year’s.

It’s been a while but here’s another episode of Harikenger. Next episode might or might not be faster, who knows.

As for other projects, Carranger will be back with another ep soonish and we might actually release GTO ep 2 as well in the near future.

GTO 2012 episode 1

Thursday, July 26th, 2012 by Drazic

And here’s the first ep for our new drama project for this season: Great Teacher Onizuka 2012. The original GTO is one of my favorite drama and it’s copycats have always been somewhat of a guilty pleasure for me so while it’s no Suzuki-sensei it’s still quite an enjoyable drama!

Carranger ep 10 v2

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012 by Drazic

Now that we’ve finally reached ep 10 and are almost out of v1s we’re going to stop with the batches and going to do single ep releases again. This is also the first ep one of our drama translators worked on and he’ll also be the one making sure we can release new eps as well. So enjoy and look forward to the rest of the v2s being somewhat faster than this one.

And on a slightly unrelated side-note we’re also looking for someone to help us sub a winter season drama from japanese subs. If you’re interested in helping please join our irc channel which you can find here: #HaroRangers @ irc.rizon.net (Or use this if you don’t have a irc client/don’t know what irc is). When you’re there poke Drazic or Makhazol and they’ll give you more info!

Angel Bank – Episode 8

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012 by Drazic

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.

Thanks to all the members of HaroRangers that made this possible through their TL’ing, QC’ing, Timing, Encoding, etc.

Angel Bank – Episode 7

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012 by Drazic

It’s been a little bit since our last Angel Bank release. We had some computer technical difficulties as well as work ethic difficulties that prevented us from releasing this in a timely fashion. There is some good news, though. The finale(#8) has already been translated, and is now going through final timing and QC. We will finish this project close to a year after we began. It’s been a fun ride.

This penultimate episode is more character-focused than other episodes of the series, and has more to do with the basic impact of economics on people rather than high level economic theory. The theme is the value of a dollar and how it correlates with a person’s individual happiness. The guest stars turn in some very good performances, and there are more of them than usual.

I think this is one of the best episodes of the series. It’s structured really well, and you do end up feeling for the characters involved. I hope you guys enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed helping bring it to you.

Thanks to everyone involved with encoding, TL’ing, timing, QC’ing, and releasing.

Angel Bank – Episode 6

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011 by Drazic

This episode will always occupy a special place in my heart. You see, it guest stars Ms. Maju Ozawa. I was first taken with Ms. Ozawa when she guest starred in the two part season finale of the other excellent series, Keibuho Yabe Kenzo as the woman guilty of shaking down old people for their pension checks. Here’s a picture to jog your memory:

Some of you may also know her from her somewhat creepy digital performance in Yakuza 4(龍が如く4) as Lili. While she tends to be tied down by quite a few more clothes in this episode she still manages to do a great job. Because I think there are far too many pictures of her looking sexy on the internet I thought I’d counter balance it with my own screen cap from this episode.

What is she doing indeed! Countless thanks to Drazic for the timing, QC, packaging release, and whatever the hell else he does.

Ningen no Shoumei DVD v2 ep 1

Friday, October 21st, 2011 by Drazic

So while we finished Ningen no Shoumei a while ago I thought the end result could be better. It was one of the series we still finished hardsubbed mainly for the sake of consistency but now we only do softsubs so Ningen is starting to look out of place.  Also, hardsubs suck so it was kinda lame to have one of our series hardsub only.

And while the subs weren’t horrible it wouldn’t hurt to give them another editing pass, fix some of the timing and do proper typesetting. So I bought the DVDs and this is the first re-release of Ningen no Shoumei using the DVD source. It has a way prettier looking encode from the DVDs and improved subs thanks to Kazetrigger taking another look at them and Lynxara doing a editing pass.

For those of you who’ve seen the series already the DVDs do include extra scenes as well so if you really liked the series it’s worth a rewatch just for that and the better video quality/subs.
