Just to toss my 2 cents in, I'd love to see more of this show get subbed. I enjoyed the few episodes that did get some attention.

I watched the episodes raw, the sad thing is that this is the type of show that have so little following that the subbers will be cattering to a very small audience.

Not only that, the only blog that even bothered to blog it was the Star Crossed Anime Blog! And the person running that even gave it a 94/100 which is great! I like it too!

We are going to try to translate them with a good dictionary, waiting for a real translator...

So if you know a good one, let me know !

If you are looking for episode 9 to 10, they are translated in english there : http://www.gdiproductions.net/lesmis/shoujocosette.html

For the next episodes, just be patient, I think I have found my translator....

I want to thank the subbers. I also had lost hope about anyone picking this anime.

Good work!

Wow. Haven't posted on this forum in AGES.

I noticed the sudden interest in this series - 3 or 4 new episodes appearing in the last few days. Well, I thinks to myself - Susan Boyle?

Turns out there's a LOT of interest on Les Miserables - mainly to do with the musical - on YouTube. Lots of music videos, and a lot of these use clips from the anime. Even snippets of fansubs - some from the Barricade episodes. If you've been wondering what the grown-up Cossette looks like, there's quite a bit of her there, too.

Favorite clip so far (for the music:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycGCqHQSBqI

Well, here's something I posted on some mailing lists I am on some days back, no need to retype it all:

---

Les Miserables/ Shoujo Cossette/ Jean Valjean Monogatari


Heh heh heh..

People were fansubbing this - maybe 2 or 3 groups - and then the effort petered off a year ago. Nothing. Then in the last couple days, two episodes pop up on animesuki, probably more to follow in a few days. I know exactly WHAT triggered off this sudden interest. No, I don't watch the show (can't STAND reality shows), but there was an article in the Sunday paper. Apparently the papparazzi have been harassing the poor lady. I must admit, this is the second time I've seen whatsisname completely flummoxed (there was Paul Potts, last year). See:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8QZY

(Her low notes need work, though.. a little flat in the later part.. and she left out a verse.. ^_^;

I must admit.. youtube's like Wikipedia.. you can get lost in there following "related videos". I spent the last couple nights (before late bedtime) watching all of the Les Miserables clips. I've been quite partial to the show ever since I caught a performance nine years ago. And I posted something very long about the book some months back.

Best (English) version of the song in my op on Youtube was Lea Salonga. But her earlier Eponine was better.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNojZg_mrTg

There's a HUGE Les Miserables fanbase on Youtube - music videos up the wazoo, and a lot of them were made using clips from the anime. THE absolute treat was finding French versions. My favorite Fantine:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dP7qMSfAot0

And another one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCLbbm0ZG7E

Interesting that the lyrics are different. The first one was the 1990 Paris production, based on the English version (French Canadian actress Louise Pitre). The second one was the older, original French version from 1980.

Other treats:

Cossette: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeEqc4TYJ4w
Mistress Toad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUtZAthRbRA
Gavroche: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EEY-ji0_vk (note the Korean subtitles!)
Another one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAiny0D59-g
Eponine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuS1cCnG8xc

Gavroche was my absolute favorite character in the book. The song fits exactly.

This one's very interesting. There's a Japanese one in there somewhere... makes you want to get up and march around the room! ^_^;;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPpkTgMbhRU

Don't watch this without a hanky:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzCSb6OnkZA

This same part in the book was just as good.. or bad, depending on your point of view.

Hurray! Episode 11 is out! The last episode to make its Eng-sub debut came out such a long time ago. And after such a long time, some new progress on the series has finally happened! Thank you so much, new subbers!

It's an old anime which was on french TV on the 80's in a show called "Club Dorothée"... (I miss this show... really... )

Here a link related : http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl...anime&aid=5775

It's old and not animated very well... but if you are fan of "Les Misérable"

Episode 12 is out! It's amazing how it took several MONTHS for the other quitters to get just one episode out, but these new guys got from 8 to 12 in barely more than a week! Episode 11 was pretty grim and depressing, and I was scared that the subbing might stop there, and then episode 12 came out, and the ending of the episode, just like the new subbers, made me feel so relieved and hopeful! And once again, I would like to really really thank the new subbers for giving us new hope and doing a great job subbing these last few eps!

You're welcome. We're not new, btw. Quite the ancient fansubber here.

Anyway, I was a little disappointed at how this series ended up being neglected by the fansub community. While there are ten or so groups all over other more popular series. Waste of resources, maybe?

Rest assured, there are no plans to quit mid-series. We plan to have it all subbed and released by the end of Summer.

On that note, if anyone wants to help us sub this awesome series, please contact me. Can really use the help.

well, it is too bad this series was not being subbed as it was comming out. I already watched the series and I doubt i could go though the pain of watching it again just to join the discussion. This show is so tragic, specially one of the death for one of my favorite characters.

I'm only guessing that it's because it was the era just before telephones, so they basically take what they can get as far as policework goes. It's like the freakin' middle ages compared to the information network we're accustomed to.
