Summer Project

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to start off my summer project! It's basically just something to do to keep myself busy, and I think it will be a lot of fun. So what is it that I am going to do?

I'm going to make subtitles for a Japanese TV drama. The show is called "Elite Yankee Saburou" and is about a guy who just started high school. He is the youngest of three brothers, and his elder brothers rule the school with an iron hand, striking fear into the other students. But our main character is not like that. All he wants is a nice, peaceful, normal school life. But given the way things work in this particular school, it doesn't look like he will get it.

Like many J-dramas, Elite Yankee Saburou features mediocre to decent acting, completely insane characters and cheesy but hilarious special effects. (Only in the first episode a guy takes an uppercut to the chin that slams him into the ceiling.)

So yeah, now I'll have something to do this summer, seeing as I couldn't get a job. Better than doing nothing, I guess!

Until next time, have a good day!

  13. Are you planning to put it on youtube, or just publish the subtitles to download? I have never seen any Japanese TV so it could be fun to watch.
