captainharvey asked: When you made up the locker farting “fanfics” was it becaue you had a hard time translating the real one or was it just a really, really boring story in the original?

A mix of both, I guess? Haruppi was talking about Mizutaki for the first half (she copied from Wiki) and then ranted about Tonkotsu for the second half. Between her lisp and my poor Japanese comprehension I understood like 40% of her essay and just had a “Screw it. I’ll make something up” moment.

Abe Kyoka was 100% Uso as well. She said her dad doesn’t like to eat chicken so her family’s Mizutaki has pork in them. And I didn’t understand the rest so I bullshitted her entire essay, sorry Abe fans.

I tried to translate Serinu & Natsumikan’s essay as true as possible. They were easier to understand. There’s probably one or two line I’m not sure of but it is mostly correct.

Meru’s essay was in the point of view of a chicken meat in a Mizutaki pot. I think.

I am much more better when they play games or variety stuff. (^^;)

Sorry for the long explanation.

Anonymous asked: I like your subs, but sometimes I’m not quite sure if a line is real or fake. For most of the fake lines it’s fairly obvious, but there are a few where you really can’t tell. Have you considered putting the fake lines in italics or using a different color to show which are real and which aren’t?

One good rule you can follow for my subs: If you’re not sure, the line is probably fake.

130106 HaKaTa Hyakkaten ep11

March 12, 2013 by

I remember this was the first Hyakkaten episode I saw after I took a bit of a hiatus from Japanese entertainment while I was taking care of my mom.

The first thing that went through my mind was, “I was gone for a few weeks and THIS was the shenanigans they get into?!”.

Second was, I would never want to quit subbing this show because I somehow must show everyone with poorer Japanese comprehension than me what a great episode this was. I’m glad I stuck through.

A special thanks to Chuy, who is helping me with timing starting from this episode. So I hope to get the episodes out faster and maybe I would be able to catch up with the show.

Also, people who understands Thai should check out Chuy’s videos (who is WAY faster than I am and has already subbed this week’s episode) plus there’s a lot of other HKT48 shows as well. Here:

For the essay writing segment, the amount of Uso subs are either gonna make you really love the episode or really hate it.

Next up is Soukantoku Takamina’s episode then I’ll start with Season 2! Hopefully I can manage to catch up with the show.

I rate this sub 35% “Honmayan” and 65% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

Sorry but Teppen Tottande was something I did on a whim (plus, I barely translate anything I just wrote Teppen Tottande! over and over again..). This was really funny though. Somehow I just knew Momoka would do something weird and what she did was way above my expectation. Too funny. ^^

@anon2: I think you’re better off asking that question to They have a few episodes subbed as well:

@anon3: I did. But then I looked at the waiting list of Hyakkaten episodes I haven’t done, I put it off. Maybe I’d just sub interesting clips from the show. Episode 3 was really funny. We’ll see.

@captainharvey: I am honored and applaud you for your excellent choice of Oshis.

@anon4: I will. Trying to sub it chronologically. I LOVE THAT YOU LOVE MY SUBS LMAO

@iqbalnyan: I’m sure you can understand without subs. But to sum it up, she just promote the channel and showed her favorite part of the Hatsukoi Butterfly dance. Sadly, there’s no “Don’t touch me” anywhere in the video.

@anon1: Haha, I actually thought the same thing. I was rewatching episode 1 of Hyakkaten the other day and actually went “What the fug did I just translate?”.

@anon2: Right now my OTP is Shimada Haruka x GOPAN. Every time Shimada makes bread with GOPAN my shipper heart flutters with the anticipation of what the Shimada bread will look like this time. If Shimada brings GOPAN to Hyakkaten that would be the most amazing thing ever.
I also ship idols x engrish, idols x physical challenges, idols x B-grade horror movies.

@anon3: I’m trying to sub Hyakkaten chronologically, so I’ll do that right after I finish season 1.
