These are the files in this raws batch:

Video Girl Ai 2018 ep12 finale - v2 / final versions later along with oneshot manga + hopefully Blu-Ray extras + recruitment

Since it's been months since we've released ep11, and I for one was not aware that much of a demand for v1s when there are beta versions available in D-Addicts, Subscene, and MediaFire, might as well release ep12v1 finale that has been prepared for months. You can also find in both D-Addicts, Subscene, and MediaFire the beta version subtitles of Koe Girl, Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni 2018, and Code Blue among others that have been released so far if you can't wait for v1 versions. They are intended for those who can't wait. We are perfectionists after all so we prefer releasing v1s when they are ready.


We will eventually work on v2s of the JDrama with the much better raws provided by DragsterPS along with the oneshot Video Girl Ai 2018 manga and hopefully the Blu-Ray Box extras (we're eyeing on buying the Blu-Ray box once the prices go down). If by chance you are interested and can help in pretiming the Blu-Ray box extras of the JDrama, email us at tl.skeweds@gmail.com. I don't know how long that would take given we're really perfectionists and rather release when ready. That's why there are beta versions in the first place so that you can get your fix sooner than later. 

Might as well also ask help for interested cleaners and typesetters for the Video Girl Ai 2018 manga oneshot. Ais is next to working on it solo for now. It would speed things up if you can help in the technical department especially. He has a lot of stuff he's working on outside this title. E-mail us at tl.skeweds@gmail.com if you can help.

We will batch in torrent the whole Video Girl Ai 2018 when ready.

We are still looking for interested pre-timers for Chihayafuru Kami no Ku, Shimo no Ku, Tsunagu, and Musubi Blu-Ray extras. Kindly email us (tl.skeweds@gmail.com) if you are interested and can help in pre-timing.

I''s JDrama extras (raws for now) and recruitment


These are the files in this batch, sadly, raws for now:
  • Full_Chorus_#126_-_Migiwa_Takezawa_[JPTVTS][HD][E06B7285].mkv
  • I''s_JDrama_-_Aiko_Aso_(Konatsu_Kato)_Image_Video_[SkewedS-Raw][UHD][Youtube-Rip][640F8022].mkv
  • I''s_JDrama_-_Iori_Yoshizuki_(Sei_Shiraishi)_Image_Video_[SkewedS-Raw][UHD][Youtube-Rip][1A8DED08].mkv

  • I''s_JDrama_-_Production_Announcement_Youtube_Live_Broadcast_[SkewedS-Raw][HD][Youtube-Rip][9B5D31DC].mp4
  • I''s_JDrama_Special_-_Thorough_Guide_of_the_I''s_JDrama_[SkewedS-Raw][FHD][Youtube-Rip][F35F20B3].mp4
  • Special_Program_-_Drama_Actors_Spend_Nightly_Drinking_at_Shimokita_-_Extra_-_I''s_JDrama_Special_[SkewedS-Raw][FHD][Youtube-Rip][8B474164].mp4
  • Special_Program_Recording_Talk_-_I''s_Male_Cast_Interview_[SkewedS-Raw][FHD][Youtube-Rip][84C1A0FE].mp4
For the "Extended Trailers", we more or less can work on them since the second trailer is more or less like probably a preview of the first episode and it's not really that difficult to work on. As for the two "Special Programs" about the male cast of the JDrama, there is already a timer working on them. The "image videos" probably doesn't need to be really fully subtitled, just translate the names of the the girls that are cast for each respective role.

Anyway, we would like to ask for interested pre-timers the rest of the raws - the "Full Chorus" episode, "Youtube Live", and the "Thorough Guide". Kindly email us at tl.skeweds@gmail.com if you can help us in pre-timing the videos.

Also, might as well ask for an interested pre-timer who would want to pre-time the upcoming "Girls Talk" episode in the middle of the run of the I''s JDrama series.
Above is more or less the schedule announced way back, so the Girls Talk episode will be between episode 5 and 6, where there is a gap of a month between that Girls Talk episode and episode 6 for the broadcast. Kindly email us (tl.skeweds@gmail.com) if you are interested.


In case you haven't noticed yet, we're going to use two single apostrophes instead of one double apostrophe in naming the files.

Might as well also mention that we are still looking for interested pre-timers for Chihayafuru Kami no Ku, Shimo no Ku, Tsunagu, and Musubi Blu-Ray extras. Kindly email us (tl.skeweds@gmail.com) if you are interested in pre-timing.

I"s JDrama Trailer


We found someone who is willing to pre-time the I"s male cast special where they talk and drink in Shimokita while discussing some things about the JDrama (where also the manga author, Masakazu Katsura also participated in). Hopefully, we would be able to release that variety talk show type special before the JDrama airs, but I can't promise anything (as it's really a pain to work on variety talk show type stuff).

But we could still use pre-timers interested in pre-timing the Chihayafuru Kami no Ku, Shimo no Ku, Tsunagu, and Musubi Blu-Ray extras. If you are interested in pre-timing those, which are variety talk show types, kindly email us at tl.skeweds@gmail.com. Thanks!

Also, to note, there are problems using double apostrophe in the filenames in the releases, so there might be instances where the double apostrophes will be changed to two single apostrophes.

We're planning on English subtitling I"s JDrama (if all goes well)

 
If you've noticed our Plurk microblog, Twitter, Facebook updates, and the 12th anniversary post recently - yes, we're planning on English subtitling the upcoming I"s JDrama. I've already asked some friends who can record the JDrama for us since it will be broadcasted in a cable TV starting December 21, 2018. But there would first be a behind the scenes broadcast on December 15, 2018, which we also plan to work on (even though it'll probably be a pain to subtitle). Let's hope that there would be Japanese captions in the broadcast (if not for now, at least, let's hope it would also be included in Netflix Japan just like Yowamushi Pedal Live Action series which would eventually have Japanese captions).

For now, since I've got nothing else, I've translated (cleaned, and typesetted) the character correlation chart below:
I"s JDrama Character Correlation Chart
Actually, I've been timing, doing on and off on my own, the "trailer" of the I"s JDrama special broadcast of "Actors of a Drama drink at Night in the Town of Shimokita" which are available on Youtube (though region locked only to Japan). Been wanting to fansub both the trailer and the special itself for months now, but I really have a lot on my plate and could use help on them. If you are interested in helping pre-timing the trailer and special (and maybe the upcoming JDrama), kindly email us at tl.skeweds@gmail.com.

Might as well repost here the the image videos of the four main "I" girls in the I"s JDrama (which are region locked to Japan in respective Youtube links):

Iori Yoshizuki

Itsuki Akiba

Izumi Isozaki

Aiko Aso


Though again, this is still a big if by chance we fully acquire good quality raws at least, and (it's actually good news but) the JDrama series would not be licensed outside of Japan with English subtitles (just like what happened when we planned to work on Death Note JDrama way back when).

PS: Speaking of Masakazu Katsura, we're currently also scanlating a manga of Masakazu Katsura as a joint with another scanlation group (besides the Video Girl Ai 2018 manga oneshot which I still have to finish cleaning, translating, and typesetting orz).

Today's SkewedS Translations' 12th Anniversary - Here are some of the beta version releases since last time + series project news, updates, & status



Darn, that's 25 titles haha

Wow, I just realized we were mostly productive since the last update of beta version release which was last year. It's that time of the year again where we celebrate our anniversary. Now we're 12 years old. Wow, time sure flies so fast.

First and foremost we are still in dire need of pre-translation timers who can pre-time the Blu-Ray extras of Chihayafuru Kami no Ku, Shimo no Ku, Tsunagu, and Musubi. Kindly email us at tl-skeweds@gmail.com if you're interested.

Let's get on with the list! (Note: the one that has * in them would just mean that we're not entirely sure anymore if there would be final versions as there are already digital media that has English subtitles included in them (didn't include Kakegurui Live Action series season 1 since you can watch that series now in Netflix with legit English subtitles))

As for future series projects and status:
  • We more or less have announced in our microblog and this D-Addicts post that we are working on the better version of Cheer Dan JDrama
  • I, Ais, am more or less deciding to entirely ditch our own original encoded releases of Video Girl Ai 2018 JDrama and just use DragsterPS's rips from Amazon Prime Japan. Sorry (but honestly, my encodes sucks anyway). We will release the final batch along with the oneshot manga scanlations.
  • Koe Girl is underway as we wait for edits and QCs with our help from CureCom.
  • GeGeGe no Kitaro 2007 is also underway as we wait for edits and QCs with our joint group, The Skaro Hunting Society. We also decided that we'll skip straight to ep42-52 after releasing some episodes. We'll explain that when we get there.
  • I''s JDrama is more or less decided as I, Ais, have talked to our very generous and awesome raw providers who can record the episodes once they air. Let's hope for captions even if they'll be aired in cable TV.
Happy 12th Anniversary to SkewedS Translations! Hope we can still get on with this momentum as we enter another year for us! Cheers!

GeGeGe no Kitaro 2007 - 001v3

Be sure to also check out the 2018 version from Crunchyroll.
It's been almost a decade since we released the hardsubbed v2 of this and finally, we can re-work on this again as Netflix Japan already has episodes 1-52 of this franchise's 2007 version that has Japanese captions! (Was lazy to rip it myself since there were too many but thanks to kitsunekko, who has uploaded all the Japanese captions so far). This is technically v3 but this is the first time it would be released in softsubs from us so I guess you wouldn't know the difference much.

There were quite a lot of stuff that was altered and corrected with this current release since we don't have to translate by ear now. Though there are many things that the former translator of this episode, HyperZeronos (of the now defunct(?) Order of Zeronos) did translated right. Though things like the names of the main characters were changed like how CrunchyRoll is translating the names (though sorry, the translation to "Catchick" is too much, so translated it as "Catgirl").

We are in need of editors and quality checkers for this project. I, Ais, only need to translation check, edit, and QC eps 2-5 & 7 and release them. Have to work on ep6 almost from scratch since I can't seem to find the translations even of that episode. Was surprised ep7 is almost done when the episode before that is. Anyway, if you are interested in editing or qc'ng this title, kindly email us at tl.skeweds@gmail.com.

Let's hope for the best that we'll get to finish around this time. Though rest assured, until episode 52, since there are Japanese captions, is much less painful to work on and can be guaranteed that we will get to work on them.

The weekly yokai for this first episode of the 2007 series is a Suiko / Water Tiger. You can read more about it here at yokai.com.

Video Girl Ai 2018 - 11

Guess where Ai is
We will most likely use the new webrip that DragsterPS posted, especially the 1080p for the final version.

Also, until we actually finished scanlating the oneshot manga of the Video Girl Ai 2018, we will release ep12 as a batch.

After the Rain - Wish in a Pocket 1


Who would have thought we'll be working on this spin off web series this early? I honestly didn't LOL I, Ais, was intending to release it first in beta version, but I don't think I've seen any public raws of this. So might as well release them as v1 versions. The same can be said in the Teiichi no Kuni spinoff series which we'll eventually do (hopefully soon when my mountains of to-translate stuff stops piling up).

"The new mini-series focuses on the relationship between the characters Takashi Yoshizawa and Yui Nishida, who are supporting characters in the original story." - AnimeNewsNetwork.

Hopefully, we can release ep2 of this spinoff series by next week... Hopefully :P

Koe Girl ep1v2-2 + PreCure 15th Anniv PVs

This is the original pose of Cure Fortune
A lot of thanks to Precure Junkie, K-o-R, and Kanmuri of CureCom for joining the team for editing and QC of the series. I think most people that have English as their first language would appreciate a lot their edits done from now on. That's why ep1v2 is now earlier than expected (there might be a v3 - but probably just added karaoke for the ending song).

Also special thanks goes out to Momo for pointing out that hard ep2 dialogue at the beginning of the episode. In case you haven't followed our posts in the microblog or the D-addicts thread, it's actually a tongue twister for actresses, voice actresses, and announcers. On page 103 of this book is where we found the translation of the part that was used in episode 2.

Also included in the batch are the promotional videos (PVs) of the PreCure 15th anniversary collaboration with Koe Girl.

Video Girl Ai 2018 - ep6-7

Did you know that Production IG, the parent company of Signal.MD worked on the original OAV series way back? By the way, Signal.MD worked on the animation shorts for this JDrama series.
By the way, changed my mind that our own encode would be in 1440x810 resolution and in 10-bit x264. Once v1s of eps8-12 will be batched for the final release, eps1-5 v2s will be in 1440x810 in the batch.
