Whew! What an amazing start! There’s already a lot to talk about after only one night, so that’s a great sign. I’ve been contacted by several people to lend a helping hand, and we’ve been given a lot of great advice in the comments of the first blog post.
First things first… we are not technically a subbing group per se. Although, I am more than willing to make it one and get my own hands dirty to get the ball rolling. Instead, think of this as a hub where people can form brand new subbing groups, or already established subbing groups can come to ask for extra help to push a stagnant project along. I would love to have a queue of people lined up to fill in when one subbing group or another suddenly finds themselves without an important staff member. If you want to make some connections, THIS is the place to do it. Need help learning how to do some aspect of the subbing process? Ask us for help! We might even be able to pair you with someone who already knows that process, so you can eventually go off and do a project of your own. This whole blog is based on strength in numbers, and we have a great community to pull it off.
Now, where do we begin? There has been a lot of help in this regard from the previous post. Special thanks to jfbladex for compiling a breakdown of what needs subbing and who is working on what at the moment. Also, Someone new(if that is your real name!) provided another fansub guide at http://sentairangers.com/fansub-guides/sentai-fansub-guide/. WIth the information provided, I think there are a few great starting points we can work on: Denziman, Dynaman, Turboranger, and possibly finishing up Changeman by filling in the gaps. Scissor Jaguar posted a link to Deadfish Subs’ version of Changeman in the previous post and suggested that maybe someone could just fill in those last couple of episodes. So, the question is…. does anyone know the quality of those subs, and does anyone know if raws for the missing episodes are available. Please leave a comment if you know further information on those issues, so maybe we can get someone working on it . The other seasons mentioned seem to have no one working on them at all. I don’t want to step on the toes of other fansub groups by just finishing something they will probably finish over the next 3 years anyways, but maybe once we’ve filled the glaring gaps we can come together and assist them with those straggling projects.
What else do we need? TRANSLATORS! If you know anyone that wants to translate, send them our way! I have people itching to get started and a translator could really move this along much quicker. Chris gave me a solid lead in the previous post, which I will follow up with, so keep your fingers crossed.
Finally, a shout out to those who have already joined the cause. I got a great reaction from www.rangerboard.com. Thanks to TOQ-1, SkyFly1112, GMranger88, and 146Chris (check out his toku blog at http://powertoku.blogspot.com) for joining the cause. Hopefully, we can all get something going very soon!
