121209 HaKaTa Hyakkaten ep08

January 30, 2013 by

Not much fake sub this time. Either my Japanese is getting better or I’m too tired to come up with jokes. I did manage to slip in one subtle Sasshi scandal joke. (Take that, anon!)

I know that Akicha is an airhead but she was super airhead in this episode it’s glorious. Also, that background song they play when someone cries cracks me up.

Lastly, is it me or is the Hakata gourmet this time looks really unappealing and… raw?

I rate this sub 80% “Honmayan” and 20% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

@anon1: Vid48 account. I’ll upload episode 8 here once it’s done.

@anon2: I tend not to sub AKbingo because AIDOL will sub that eventually. That episode is really funny though.

@anon3: Not really although I seemed to be steering in that direction. Basically, I just sub any idol videos that I like.

@the-moe-dome: Aw thanks! Give me the links for the vids would love to see them. I’m intrigued with that spaghetti clip especially, haha. I’m so behind in my idol videos the only thing I’ve watched so far are AKBingos and Hyakkatens.

And for the anon that asked the Sasshi scandal question, I’ve already answered it here:

My main problem is Hyakkaten, everything else seems fine in Dailymotion.

I tried uploading it on Youtube and (I’m not kidding) after 2 seconds it finished processing the video was blocked. I don’t know what kind of sorcery Nippon Television is using. Clips are fine though, I already uploaded a few as backup.

I need a site where it is fast to upload and will let me upload a whole episode without splitting it up.

If all else fails, I think I’ll upload Hyakkaten on Vid48 from episode 8 onwards. It is unlikely the videos will get deleted there, but you guys have to register with vid48 to view the videos.

Any other site suggestions is appreciated as well.

Seems like all my Hakata videos are rejected on Dailymotion, I’m uploading some back as we speak. I’ll give the new links later.

Can’t believe no one actually picked up where I left off or even edit my subs with real ones during my absence. Or is HaKaTa Hyakkaten now forever associated with half-assed subs? That is sad and awesome at the same time. Haha.
Anyway, episode 8 is coming. A bit slow though. Should be around next week or so.

Real life update: My mom’s fine for now. I found a job that allows me to work from home so everything is fine on the financial aspect. Don’t worry, I won’t be putting ads or asking for donation anytime soon. And for those who gave me messages and encouragement, thank you.

I just checked my e-mail and the abundance of messages on halfassedsubs’ tumblr just made me feel so sorry for abandoning this blog for so long.

The truth is a lot of things are happening in my life right now. Last month, my mother was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. Not dwelling too much into it, since then, I’ve quit my job, sold my car and my house and taking care of my mom at her house. Her operation was successful but she needs constant care 24/7. She’ll start chemotherapy next month once her body gets better. My main concern right now is her health and *gulp* the hospital bills.
Sometimes real life hits you and when it does, it hits you hard.

But this doesn’t mean I’m quitting this tumblr. There will be halfassedsub, just not now. Maybe in a few weeks, maybe in a few months. I hope you guys understand my situation right now and I read every single message even if I don’t reply so thanks for that. Again, my utmost apologies and until then.
