I was thinking…

…of just making the softsubs without editing them. That would save me a lot of time but I don’t know if that arrangement would be favourable to you, people. Would it be favourable? Do you guys mind? LOL. I mind, but I don’t watch any drama at all these days so if there are imperfections with the subs, I won’t even notice (unless I go line by line when resyncing).

If the bad grammar, unnecessary/wrong punctuations irk you all, then just edit them yourselves. Good?

Oh well, I called for help, only 2 answered. I might as well give the subs only to these persons. Just joking (but you know that’s a half-meant joke) 😉 You know, most of you guys probably didn’t read my previous posts but just look at this certain drama’s page to see whether I’ve uploaded the subs already (the page hits really say a lot!) or maybe you can’t be bothered to at least help. But then, I realise I don’t want to bother others. What is this never-ending cycle?

I wanna take a break. LOL. Maybe I’m just so tired.

Will I still need help?

I wailed for help so I can release Material Queen, Love Keeps Going, and Hayate the Butler for you guys who want it badly but the subbing teams actually picked the said dramas and… they’ve been fast so far (comparing to the pace of hardsubbers before). I guess, we’d have to stick with hardsubs for now and I get to keep my pace with the softsubs until someone helps me.

SUBlimes (my favourite in the TwDrama scene) came back from the dead and released Material Queen! I totally didn’t expect that, since I’m expecting another subbing group to release it. Get it here: http://www.sublimesfansubs.com/2011/06/material-queen.html

DoReMii picked up Hayate the Combat Butler. Get it here: http://doremiiscale.blogspot.com/2011/06/hayate-combat-butler-project.html

Serendipity FS picked up Love Keeps Going. Get it here: http://serendipityfs.blogspot.com/2011/06/master-post-love-keeps-going.html

Looking for Helpers

Working alone on the subtitles, I realised, no man really is an island. It takes me a minimum of two hours working on a perfectly subbed/timed episode. If an episode is badly subbed (wrong grammar, no punctuations), it takes me more than three hours just to correct the kinks. By the time I finished correcting them, I haven’t even re-synced the episode parts, that’d take an hour or two.

And OMG, we actually have lots of interesting dramas this season. ;__; If I were to work on them alone, it would take me weeks or months…

I’m no superhuman so I need help. I’ll need editors/QC-ers and re-sync-ers.


Editors/Quality Checkers

  • Proficiency in the English language (times 10000000000000!)
  • Has dedication, someone who wouldn’t disappear like a bubble when working on a project

Re-sync-ers (or Timers, if you want to call it that—though, you won’t really time, as the episodes have been timed already. You’ll just have to re-sync the episode parts to match the raw videos.)

  • Has experience in using Aegisub or any subtitle-related programs
  • Has dedication, someone who wouldn’t disappear like a bubble when working on a project

Want to help the drama people enjoy their dramas using softsubs? Then email me at zenithsubs [at] gmail [dot] com.

Thanks in advance!

To Malaysians!

I am deeply saddened with the current news. C’mon! Blocking the download sites just to try to curb piracy? Uhm. Not a good idea.

Now, I don’t have time to reupload the video files to MF (that works, as my Malaysian friends have reported), but I can reupload the softsubs on MF soon (I hope! Really busy with RL).

Of course, this is the Internet we’re talking about. THERE SHOULD BE A SOLUTION!

Okay, darlings, point your DNS to Google’s Public DNS. That should make you access the blocked sites.

Click here for the instructions!

Edit: Added a video 🙂

Sunny Happiness Raws

Somebody requested “Sunny Happiness” and I ought to do softsubs for drama even from the start (even before I started Drunken to Love You).

But then, as I was checking my raws (China/DVD version) which I got from AM-Addiction, the Episode 1 raw I have doesn’t have the first few scenes where Mike and Janine were on the dining table, then on the bed… The raw I have already starts on the part where Janine is leaving her home.

Now, I’m ready to release softsubs for Episodes 01-05, the only thing I need is the raw video of Episode 1 with the “first few scenes” or even better, the download links for the exact raws used in ViKi.

If anyone has the videos, I hope you can upload and share. x.x If I won’t find the raw for that, I’ll just have to remove the first few scenes’ subtitles in the .srt file for Episode 1.
