I'm still alive, I swear! And so is GS2! [Feb. 19th, 2011|09:29 pm]
Hey guys,

久しぶり and all that jazz. As you've probably gathered from the fact that I haven't updated this blog in several months, graduate school has been kicking my ass. Hard. I've got 4 tests, a nasty history paper (the first I've written in 7 years... /cry), a Chinese presentation, and translation/annotation work for an early-19th century Japanese text, all next week. So basically, next week is going to kill me several times over. On the bright side, I 'll be attending a Kodo taiko concert on Wednesday evening, which will be AMAZING (my 4th time seeing them :3 ).

Anyway, enough of me whining about my life. On to what concerns you guys: The Takarazuka Gyakuten Saiban 2 translation. Short answer: YES, the project is still alive and well! I'm actually about 50% done, and I plan to use Spring Break to finish up the whole thing. When is Spring Break, you ask? Well, for me at least, it starts next Saturday and runs for a week, which should be enough time for me to translate and edit everything. So basically, I should have the subs posted online in two weeks time or less. Hurray!

I realize I originally planned to get this out like...a year ago >_> I'm sorry for making everyone wait so long. In fact, I'm surprised no one stepped up and produced a translation themselves o_O Am I really the only person interested in this kind of project? Or at least the only one masochistic enough to actually attempt to translate a Takarazuka play by himself? Hmm....

Oh, that reminds me: After hosting my Takarazuka Gyakuten Saiban clips for over a year, Youtube *finally* decided to take them down for copyright infringement =/  Bummer. I have half a mind to rehost them somewhere else, but I can't be bothered right now. I'll probably do it when I upload the Gyakuten Saiban 2 subs. When I do, I'll post the links here.

Oh, and that reminds me of something else as well: It has come to my attention that the link to the subs for Gyakuten Saiban 1 is dead. Yeah, I should probably fix that. I think I'll also postpone that till I finish work on the subs. Better to do everything at once, you know.

Okay, time to get back to this #%#$%# paper.

:D You are amazing. And my hero. You kick that paper's ass! Also, if you ever get the time, it would be nice to somehow be able to get my paws on one or both of the dvds. :P I tried crescent shop and the site wasn't working. Found out that they moved to a new site. Went there, and realized it's too much trouble for me anyways. ^_^; Lol. It's hard for me to understand. ">_> It's so hard to get a hold of those! Man! =.=
