About Half

[Half Assed] is a one person subbing team. Meaning I’m doing all the translating, timing, uploading and bullshitting in all the videos. In the video, I will sub the parts that I am very sure about and the ones I’m not sure I’ll just make up some stuff. This is where I will practice my 中途半端の日本語 (my half-assed Japanese). After all, a half-assed sub is better than no sub, right? 

121028 HaKaTa Hyakkaten ep04

October 31, 2012 by

Some notes:

  • Furuhata Ninzaburo is a famous fictional detective. Sakura was imitating his catchphrase.
  • The phrase that Shiichan was saying is actually from Moliere since I couldn’t translate what she said beautifully.
  • Sanuki Udon is a noodle soup that is popular in Kagawa.
  • Will Sasshi create random new segments? Will Madoka reveal her real age? Will Aoi cry again? Will someone finally pick Murashige as Oshimen? Let’s watch and find out!

    I give this one a rating of 70% “Honmayan” and 30% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

    PS:Next week is Yuko! Thank God she didn’t play the balloon game for this week. And hardsub is being uploaded as we speak. Also, octopus!

120421 Mujack – Momoiro Clover Z (Quiz)

October 30, 2012 by

I love me some Baka Idols. This time is a short Momoiro Clover Z vid with a bonus Takamina! This is not the full video, just the first part of the quiz during their appearance at Mujack.

Notes:

  • Petagine that Takamina refers to is Roberto Petagine who used to be a baseball player for Giants. Source.
  • Fate is actually Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 but it is more commonly known as Unmei (Fate) in Japan. Source.
  • The statue for the last question is a statue of Dr. William S. Clark, an American professor who helped establish Hokkaido University. His name is well known for his famous phrase, “Boys, be ambitious.” Source. Picture.
  • So much overlap conversations so there might be a few loss lines here and there.

    I give this one a rating of 90% “Honmayan” and 10% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

121021 HaKaTa Hyakkaten ep03

October 25, 2012 by

While SKE Magical Radio and NMB Geinin got ProjectSUB48 as their subber and AKBingo got AIDOL, you HKT peeps get stuck with me. I’m sorry.

I thought Mayuyu’s episode would be a bit boring because she’s usually a cyborg when it comes to variety shows. But Sashihara proved herself to be a great MC that bring out the best in her guest and HKT’s personality is vibrant enough to keep this show alive for me. That gesture battle was brilliant. I might make this a weekly thing after all. Plus, next week is Shiichan! Can’t wait for that.

Some notes:

  • Akashiya Sanma is a Japanese comedian that has prominent buck teeth. Google him up, he’s popular in Japan.
  • Sugi-chan is also a comedian but I don’t know a lot about him except that he annoyingly ends his phrase with “ze”. Mayu was probably trying to do one of his gags or pose.
  • Kyūshū is a region where Hakata, Fukuoka is located. Although, I have no idea what Sakura is doing.
  • Kojima Yoshio is a comedian who is famous with his “Sonna no kankei nee” gag which was what Haruppi was doing.
  • Soredemo Suki Da Yo is Sasshi’s first solo single and Kiss Datte Hidarikiki is SKE48’s latest single.
  • Ichiro is Ichiro Suzuki, a Japanese baseball player who is now playing for the New York Yankees.
  • And Mayuki is the ship name for Mayuyu and Yukirin. 😉

I actually looked up the dictionary more than usual, especially the gesture quiz so that part is mostly right.

There are still a few fake subs here and there so this one gets 70% “Honmayan” and 30% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

PS: To further appreciate Sakura’s drawing skill, please look at the giraffe that she drew and also the portrait she did for Nakanishi Chiyori, Murashige Anna and Wakatabe Haruka. This girl is a genius.

Tumblr Ask Box

October 25, 2012 by

Anonymous #1: HaKaTa Hyakkaten episode 3 is coming. I just have to sub the last 5 minutes and then the timing.

Anonymous #2: If looking at the pace AIDOL is going, that episode is going to be subbed by them, although it’s going to be awhile. If you just want to know why Mayuyu cried, it’s because NBA Inaba was being too hard on her and she lost. I think. I watched that episode a long time ago. If you still want half-assed sub for that episode hit me up in the ask and I’ll see what I can do.

jeffsquall, luckynumber48, Anonymous from Argentina: Thanks! You guys do know these subs are half-assed, right?

I never thought I would do this again but I like the combination of Sasshi and Miichan. I’ve also learned more about the members and grown very fond of HKT48. Sakura’s “EH?” was Kashiwagi quality and Aoi is such a sweetie. Haruppi lisp is adorable as hell and Natsu’s comment about Miichan got me cracking. Also, Murashige Anna trolling like always. And holy shit, Madoka is fifteen years old?

So… Sasshi scandal joke? Check. HKT48 Popularity joke? Check. Murashige Russian monkey joke? Check.

Again, I give this rating 50% “Honmayan” and 50% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

Fujiwara no Arigatai to Omoe Live Special 2010.03.20 (JunJun & Sayu)

October 15, 2012 by

This is a funny one where JunJun and Sayu dance a newly choreographed version of “Renai Revolution 21”. This episode was a 3 hour Live Special but this is only the dancing part. I’ve always love watching JunJun & Fujimoto’s back and forth banter on the show. Do check out the other ones (which is, fortunately, subbed properly):

1st: (2009.05.16) Sayu and JunJun – Shouganai Yume Oibito
2nd: (2009.08.08) Kamei Eri, Michishige Sayumi, JunJun – Nanchatte Renai
3rd: (2009.08.15) Kamei Eri, Michishige Sayumi, JunJun – Nanchatte Renai

The lyrics translation were taken from Projecthello. FUJIWARA’s Japanese is a little hard to hear and translate so most of the time I just winged it. Thank God most of the jokes are physical comedy so there’s not much to translate.

I give this one a rating of 80% “Honmayan” and 20% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

121007 HaKaTa Hyakkaten ep01

October 14, 2012 by

HKT48’s own show with Kashiwagi Yuki as guest! This was terribly sub and I think I should only handle videos that are around 10 minutes or less. (^^;)

There are a lot more fake subs this time around and my personal favorite is when Yukirin starts to talk in her dialect. I think I should state that I love HKT48 and Murashige is one of my Oshi so whenever I make fun of them or call her a Russian monkey please take it as a joke. Except for that Russian monkey part because that’s true.

Anyway, this is a must see for HKT48 & Kashiwagi Yuki fans regardless of my half-assed translations.

I give this sub a rating of 50% “Honmayan” and 50% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

6th Gen First Handshake Event (Shabondama)

October 13, 2012 by

Some good old classic Rokkies. Just a short clip from their first handshake event.

Some notes: I guess Yoropikku is a cuter way of saying Yoroshiku. Which basically means “Nice to meet you” in this context.

Also, Shabondama means soap bubbles. But I left that intact.

Not really sure about the last part of my translation so I rate this one 90% “Honmayan” and 10% “Zettai uso ya wa”.

Hello! Days Vol.11 JunLin’s first fanclub event (Piano)

October 13, 2012 by

A short one, this was during JunJun & LinLin’s first handshake event around June ‘07. The video is short so there’s not much translation to work with. So this video gets the exclusive 100% “Honmayan!”

111106 MUSIC JAPAN (GAME SEGMENT)

October 12, 2012 by

I think this is a good video to start my subbing with. It has all my favorite groups and I’m actually surprised this has not been subbed earlier. (Maybe it has, I just couldn’t find it)

The questions are mostly subbed correctly and when the fake sub appears it’s really apparent (over the top or funny or both).

So I give this sub a rating of 80% “Honmayan” and 20% “Zettai uso ya wa”.
