A lot more footage of 嵐のワクワク学校 that was not shown during the WS, so posting this. And the 奥様運び game is, for me at least, one of the CUTEST things that happened this year so far.
I still can't get over how ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE it is. I don't think Nino enjoyed it very much but it made my day when I saw the footage...whoever made the decision that Nino should be the 'wife', thank you (*´꒳`*)
(19 Nov. 2016, NHK) is a two hour long special based on a Kindaichi Kosuke mystery by Yokomizu Seishi. Hasegawa Hiroki plays the famous detective Kindaichi. The setting is 1946, on a fictional island called Gokumon-tou, located in the Seto Inland Sea. Kindaichi intended to convalesce in Gokumontou, at the invitation of his war buddy Kitou Chimata, the successor son of the island's powerful clan called the Kitou Family. However, Kindaichi arrived alone, bringing bad news of Chimata's demise. He is introduced to Chimata's three remaining sisters, who are pretty but act very childish and immature. He also meets Sanae (Naka Riisa), the lovely cousin of Chimata. He learns that the family's patriarch has died, and that they are waiting for Sanae's brother Hitoshi to come home from the war. Meanwhile, the affairs of the house are entrusted to the three village elders, Head Priest Ryonen (Okuda Eiji), Village Mayor Araki (Sugawara Daikichi), and Chinese medicine practitioner, Koan-Sensei (Ayata Toshiki). However, the truth is, Kindaichi is not on the island to recuperate. Before Chimata died, he uttered the words: "My sisters will be killed!" Sure enough, as the three sisters are killed off one by one in horrible bizarre manners, Kindaichi tries desperately to find the culprit and in the process, gets to encounter family intrigues, secrets, island mentality and discrimination, and eccentricities, amidst the backdrop of a turbulent post-war era.© original text by: earthcolors

Translating this SP
took a long time, and required a lot of re-checking since I really wanted to get this right. This is one of Japan's most famous mysteries after all. And as far as I know, no one has translated the novel in English, and this particular adaptation is the closest one ever made to the original story. The language itself is difficult, since the characters are talking in old jargon, plus the dialect (a friend said it's hard even for the ordinary Japanese person). But even if I checked and rechecked my subs a number of times, I'm sure it's still not perfect, and some of you may even not like how I choose to translate some of the words and lines.
Here are are now my notes regarding Gokumontou but...Warning 1: Spoilers ahead!!
Warning 2: Brace yourself, these notes are embarrassingly long and full of ramblings haha
Warning 3: Please remember that I did not read the novel; much of these were taken from internet research.( Read more... )

i will open for public in 3 weeks( tsunagu )
Please do not reupload and share the hotlink anywhere!
I'm throwing in the towel on this one...
If anyone can help me with the updating on the masterpost on RNA that would be awesome.
Actually... I should do it myself since it isn't even *that* hard.... mmestrange has already helped me to find all the links in DW already... But... After my new job rolled around I just haven't been on DW/LJ much...
Today marks the first proper post I have on SF in months.... :X
All I need to do is to find the link in my message, and paste it where the old LJ link was in my masterpost... Maybe I'll get around to it someday... But if anyone wants to help... :X You'll have to work directly with the HTML in a google doc or something...
We have a good number of SF members here on DW now... But mods... Sigh. We need new mods. Or at least, content providers. Right now it's basically me and junaibanina posting only. Half of the mods aren't even on DW/SF admin yet... Well you can't blame them... Just like I've disappeared for stretches because of RL... Stuff happens in RL and priorities change... What we need is new blood. I just feel a little... Hmm... How do I put it... Mean? If I were just to take control of things completely now because SF started out as a bunch of people... Then again considering how several have completely dropped off now...
Of course, the other problem is the lack of willing and qualified candidates....
But in all reality... It's content providers that we need more than mods. There isn't much in terms of 'modly duties' to be done... We have civilised members posting civil content... Haven't seen anything in need of intervention so far... So that's good.
On a different note...
I think I've found some new revelations about myself.
I really like new starts, new challenges... Like starting up a new community. Now that's fun. It's far from the level of difficulty in starting a new startup, but I can say it's kinda like an easy mode of starting up a new website... And I like doing that.
I really like writing. Yeah sure I can't produce mind blowing literature works, but I can write articles, guides, blog posts etc and I write them really well. I can easily find stuff to write about, and go in depth... Ideas come easily... I can tell you that I'm definitely another step closer to starting my next website... Yeah. It's definitely, 100% going to come...
It'll be good if I can get a sizeable chunk of $$ from these ventures eventually. Sigh.
Alright. That's all for now.
Since I've been needing a break since forever, my stance this summer is NOT to sub any current weekly drama, but only some SP or two (I was planning to sub some movie also but I saw that English subs will be available in its upcoming dvd/bluray release so nvm). However, seeing that there are many interesting dramas this summer, I cannot say I am fully committed to my promise. So my stance right now is... "it-depends-so-just-wait-and-see-but-if-
One SP so far in my list...Gokumontou.
An NHK two hour SP shown November of last year, that slipped past the jdrama radar. It's a Kindaichi Kosuke masterpiece mystery, and quite challenging to translate. I've been working on this for some time now but seldom got the time to focus on it. Now that KodoGuru6 is done, I'll finally get to finish it. Special thanks to VampireXxX who helped me scour the internet for a good raw. While waiting, you can read about the plot/adaptations, HERE
. Please look forward to it~.
That is all for now~.
Ep. 12 Finale: "Deep Fried Corn and Beef Rice of Gotanda, Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo"
Episode Synopsis. Inogashira Goro (Matsushige Yutake) arrived at Gotanda Station, to meet with his last client for the day, Watanabe Masayoshi (Hasegawa Tomoharu), the president of a certain packing company. However, as soon as Watanabe saw him, he pulled Goro behind some crates to hide him from his mother. Goro was confused and bewildered... After the meeting, Goro stopped for a moment to watch the flow of Meguro River. He suddenly felt hungry and looked for a shop. He saw a signboard that said, "Fureai Eat and Drink Shop Area". It was located inside a building full of snack bars and pubs. Being a non-drinker, Goro at first, hesitated but when he saw the sign, "Shokudou Todaka", he decided to give it a shot. Inside, the master of the shop (Tsuyoshi Muro) asked him to choose a drink which comes with a side nibble. Disappointed, Goro felt uneasy since it seemed it was mainly a pub. But he looked at the menu, and realized that there were Beef Rice and miso soup available, too. Besides, many of the side items like Octopus and Cucumber with Salted Kelp, Deep-Fried Corn, Rockfish-Eggplant Roll, Deep-Fried Sesame Tofu-Tomato Dashi, and Uni On The Nitamago etc. sound curiously tantalizing and promising...

Just a quick update to the people who watch this space for videos/uploads, my laptop has been sent in for repairs (hard disc failure, so all my data is gone) and for the next few weeks I won't be able to encode or upload anything.
