Softsub Releases (beta versions) of Various Movies and Series

Since I, Ais, can't seem to get myself to fully concentrate on translating printed media, I thought it's best I make a more formal post regarding our beta version softsub releases of various movies and series.That's also why there are now links of the group's D-addicts threads, Subscene and OpenSubtitles found at the navigation panel at the left.


These are done next to only just me, Ais, and not checked by other people. They are made for people who can't wait. Next to all of them are just one pass translation releases so I would not be surprised if the viewer found errors in translations, grammar and some typos here and there. Kindly consider them as rough drafts for the final versions we will work on and release here.

As they are beta versions, if you found error(s), please email us (tl.skeweds@gmail.com) the time stamp of the line(s), and how to improve that line(s). Thanks!

Also, if you are interested in helping a title, mostly in time-tightening, translation check, editing (inclining to liberal English being used) and quality control, kindly apply by sending us an email at tl.skeweds@gmail.com. We could use help especially at Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger.

You can find most of the raws of the movies at Nyaa, AsiaTorrents, Plotboxes, JPFiles and AsiaFull. As for the raws of the series, I posted the links of them at the starting post found at the respective threads at D-addicts.

The final versions will be released in various resolutions.

Anyway, here is a list of the releases, status and plans of the titles after the cut:

    • Released beta version of ep2 for now as of this post. Will update it sporadically
    • Final versions status:
      • We can't release the final versions until we are able to acquire untapped DVDs of the series (recruiting timers & translation checkers interested)
      • I, Ais, is hoping to release also custom subbed DVDs of the series so we badly need the untapped DVDs of the series
      • The final version will most likely be in FWVGA resolution typesetted softsubbed mkvs
      • We will most likely also work on the sequel series, Sky High 2, which would mean we also need the untapped DVDs of the 2nd series.
      • The prequel movie is already licensed in Western countries with English subtitles and dubs so we won't work on it
  • Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger
    • Beta version releases D-addicts thread 
    • Released beta versions of ep11-19 as of this post. I, Ais, personally aim to finish the beta versions before June 2015 ends - at least hoping.
    • Final versions status:
      • We could really use staff here, especially a timer that can tighten the timings (recruiting timers & translation checkers interested)
      • Like our previous releases in Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger episodes 9 and 10, the opening and ending sequences we'll use are clean. The staff credits will also be translated.
      • The final versions will most likely be in VGA resolution typesetted softsubbed mkvs along with custom subbed DVDs of the series

There are other movies I, Ais, plan to work on. Updates on them will be posted at our microblog. The beta version softsubs will also be posted at our microblog.

Kindly look forward for more releases from us, may they be beta versions, final versions, and other non-video releases :)
