Looks like you need to gather talented people who are passionate about the show and are not only passionate about Japanese or only passionate about spreading their anime nickname on the internet.

If they really loved the show I think they'd stick around for longer.

It really is an uphill struggle to get older shows done. A combination of finding a raw in the first place and then begging / convincing a translator that it's worth their time! I really do think we need more people with a passion for some of the older series!

Problem with that is that there's no real way to convince someone about something he has not seen. It's a vicious circle.

Main problem is how convince someone to watch nicovideo-rips of old crap in SHDTV era.)) I hoped Heibi know someone willing to help with LD stuff, but...
Fortunately, at least Licca Fansubs still working on request & have VCR.

Cool

Nope. Other than my collection I don't know of anyone with LDs other than my friend who edits our scripts. And hers is a small collection without anything you linked me to. Plus the answers you gave me weren't clear(i.e. had nothing to do with LDs) from our follow-on messages.

I know this has probably been discussed to death before, but if you want to convince someone to translate something this old, they have to either love it, or you have to wave some dollar bills in their face. (Preferably the larger bills, of course.)

Luckily, we have someone who loves to translate this stuff, so we're rolling along. Besides, I'm in no mood to try to work out things like tax withholding and other IRS mumbo-jumbo.

something that find is that a lot of times for kindaichi shonen no jikembo, I get japanese native translators who want to work on the show (it is a classic 148 episode mystery series from the 90s). so you might want to try and target native japanese speakers, who want to improve their english. note more editing is generally needed for them, however they can get you scripts that are very accurate, you just have to edit them more and be more heavy on the editing (Also please remember you should give translation test to all new translators). also a lot of times they will be a lot more familiar with the material then almost any american fan (ex Kindaichi or doremon). so if you can post on japanese forms I would highly recommend trying that, you might get lucky.

I'm not linked you anything. I can but list is too long. Since I'm gonna pay I need choice so we're trying to gather as much oldschool raws as we can.

We can't discuss it here, but I ripped 1-60 eps of Kindaichi w/ english subs & definitely upload them someday.

What if I don't know japanese... and obviously any japanese forums too? Is there another solutions?

I probably mistook you for the person "inactiveZ" who contacted me on MAL a few weeks ago. Sorry if that is the case.

Thank you so much those .ass file could be a huge help. the only solution I can think of is to find some who can write in japanese and ask them to post for you. I could try and ask my translators to do that for you
