From those that I talked to & what I've seen (I don't know Japanese)...
Any group that translates this will need a very strong translator... on the same level as "laughing man" & whoever else worked on "ghost in the shell."

People like that are around since AonE, A-Kraze, and later LMF, Anime.fin (Starkad), KONSPIRA, etc. all worked on GITS.

Grab a raw, look, and decide for yourself.

Zipang is full of technical jargon, whoever picks this up will either need to know some about military terminology/WW2 events, people, places, and equipment OR have someone on the staff who does.

Finally watched the full ep 1 today... My Japanese isn't that good to begin with, and I was fucking lost with this. I think I sorta got the jist of it (especially near the end, with the Yamato. Everyone knows the Yamato), but yeah, I can do easier shows like Elfen, not Zipang. Want to do a script for this though, it's good stuff.

Edit: Like the new avatar, by the way. And we should co-opt drago or dice into doing it, seriously.

Was it that hard? I don't really remember it that way... If anything I was impressed by how much simplier it was compared to Silent Service, which was nightmarish.

Nope, I got mine with emule. GHDpro always recommends emule, so I assume it's not against the rules to tell you how to get it. You need to install emule and get hooked up to a server. Then get the ed2k links from anidb.net and you should start getting the files, assuming kad is working.

I'm new here, so don't know the rules well. I think from what I read that a MORE detailed discussion on how to get the raws is forbidden.

Obviously discussions about getting any other illegal materials, such as Ripped Music CDs (such as Anime OSTs), Untranslated Anime (raws), ROMs, ISOs, Warez etc. are not allowed either. Threads which break this rule will be either closed or simply deleted.
Yes, I read them & I'm kind of confused about why a bittorrent site forbids discussion on how to get raws. ...or it is raws for licensed anime only? Maybe I'm overreading this?


Anyways, since there's a thread at the AnimeReactor forums <google & AR forum search>, I'd say any "open" discussion <They have rules too!> on the obtaining raws can go there.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Regarding the raws themselves, I think there are two sources. The one that RoomB15 <chinese fansubbers using softsubs... & I don't know chinese either!> is using probally different than the one durrem saw. The files are bigger and a little cleaner.

I hear Anime.Fin might do it if they get someone to translate.

I'm sure every group would like to do Zipang, and that's their problem exactly.

You would be wrong in that assumption. Multiple groups simply don't like the show. For example, even if Triad had a translator who didn't find the show ungodly boring, we still probably wouldn't work on it because of general lack of interest.

I don't think this thread would have made past the first page if that was the case. ... or you mean's Triad's lack of interest?

I get excited when I see a movie or anime use a historically accurate moon phase because it means that the storyteller is probably paying more attention to detail than most.

I mean general lack of interest among the actual fansubbers I talk to. I know lots of people who are interested in the show -- none of them have the ability to do anything about it, though. Which seems to be representative of most of the contributers to this thread.

The fansubbers that I have spoken with who are interested in working on the show are few and far between. I am obviously not trying to make a blanket statement about all fansubbers everywhere -- I am speaking purely from what I have observed. I am just trying to give you insight into why I believe this show is continuing to go unsubbed, rather than random guesses and assumptions that may or may not have anything to do with reality.

(Actually, everything in this post is accurate, but now that I reread my previous post, I did in fact mean that there is a general lack of interest in Triad's case. Neither the translators nor anyone else really wants to work on the show.)

Well, now that I know about it, I'm interested. Sadly, we're understaffed with our current load of projects.

I guess every group that would like to do Zipang, either is overextended or lacks an "available" translator capable enough to face the military/historical technobabble & funky accents issue.

So far, I know one group that's looking for a translator for Zipang.
(I won't say who... I can't speak for them).

... & I hear ep 5 has a bad cliff-hanger.
