    Well, if you want me to QC Taisho, just tell me.
    Wanna see those BD being used for something more than my own (big) pleasure ;D

    Hi,I’ve mailed you an application for Quality Checker.

    Come on, people! So far, no new recruits :(

  11. February 16th, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    avatar juggen says:

    Since this news post was published (31th jan), six people have replied, while only two of them have actually sent in anything. These tests are like 3 min long, and only take 10min(?) to do. So except for the typesetting test, which takes considerably much longer, you can perhaps see now, how putting out a full episode can take so much time, when most “recruits” can’t even seem to finish a 3-min test. ^^;

    Anyways, still waiting on more recruits to arrive, and old ones to send in their tests. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Yeah, we don’t do popular shit, and most people don’t even know what exist. Things were very much different during the time when we actively subbed Buzzer Beater, Eyeshield 21 and Hungry Heart Wild Striker.

    Of course not that many visit it. I was mainly trying to make a point by comparing the recruits low test-finishing-rate to our release-rate. ๐Ÿ˜›

  16. February 18th, 2012 at 11:22 am

    Well, it’s making Japanese signs into English equivalents, using programs as Aegisub and/or After Effects.

    Here’s an example:

    It’s not “that” hard, but takes its sweet time and training. ^^

    Hi Juggen and Sangofe,
    I’ve not forgotten about the application. Just some RL stuffs.Plus Juggen,the file which you gave me is too large (>100 MB O_O) So will download it this weekend and send it to you.

  18. February 18th, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Odd usage of the words “too large.” As far as I know, we’ve never released anything under 100mb in size…

    No FalseDawn, that was a test file, and you gan … I don’t think files +230mb are that large .. even with my 30 kb/s speed, I get them in few hours .. ( that’s really normal ).

    and about your test, dunno what was your position, but you can upload the sub only for Juggen instead of the ep along it ๐Ÿ˜€

    JJ, first off, this is a thread for joining Saizen, not suggesting anime you want us to “make”. Secondly, we don’t make anime, we subtitle anime. Thirdly, this anime has been suggested more than one time, and that’s when it gets annoying.

    avatar A-Style says:

    Hey, what does it mean that newer OVA’s seem to be immune to streaming? Off the top of my head, I can think of at least 3 possible meanings:

    – They’re released in a format that does not lend itself very well to streaming (.avi or something).
    – They’re not licensed to be streamed by services like youtube, huluplus, netflix, etc.
    – The originals that the fansubbers get are messed up, even if the format is OK (audio, video, and subtitle tracks are out of sync).

    Which one is it? Or is there something I’m not thinking of?

    Oh, and what do you guys do for the QA process?

  86. January 15th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    avatar FalseDawn says:

    Hi A-Style, we’ve put that little note about OVAs (and the same goes for movies too, actually) because as a general rule, most new anime series are simulcast by the likes of CR, etc. and it’s really not worth competing with them. The difference with OVAs is that they rarely get streamed and/or licensed, so we’re more like to look at doing them. Or older series, as we have been doing.

    QC basically consists of watching the subtitled video before it’s released to the general public and noting down everything that’s wrong with it(typos, dodgy grammar, errant sign typesetting) so that we can make our releases top-notch.

  87. January 15th, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    avatar beetlelisk says:

    Hey what does a timer do? Synchronizes subs with audio?

    Are you also looking for people witn no previous experience?

  88. January 15th, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    avatar sangofe says:

    beetlelisk: yes, in essence, that is what a timer do (but you’ll need to learn how to use timing post processor and spot “scene bleeds” with the naked eye). And as long as you learn the skill and are willing to work, of course we want you even if you’ve got no prior experience.

  89. January 16th, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    avatar beetlelisk says:

    Cool :)
    In coming 2-3 weeks I will have no time but later maybe I will apply.

    I have some small experience from subbing 1 episode of Polish documentary to English but software I used is on different PC so I can’t tell you it’s name atm.

    What are “scene bleeds”?

    What is the software used for timing?

  90. January 18th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    avatar CP says:

    Scene bleed is when the subtitles hang over a visual scene change for just one or a few frames, which gives an unpleasant flicker feel. You either shorten it or let it hang longer, depending on the situation.

    I think most people use Aegisub. Google that and “timing guide” and you’ll find quite a few. All may not be good…

  91. January 25th, 2013 at 4:50 am

    avatar Oni says:

    If I help with timing, do I get to pick a show to get finished?… I have one I have waited 12 years to get finished and it only has 6 eps left to go….damn I coulda learned Japanese in that time… I could also edit if that is needed more.

  92. January 25th, 2013 at 11:26 am

    avatar FalseDawn says:

    Out of sheer curiosity, what show have you been waiting 12 years for? Generally the timer works across the board on all our shows due to the nature of timing, but as mentioned in our starter post, we’re open to suggestions.

    avatar ninjacloud says:

    I don’t think you read this info, I am not sure about it but I think they said there’s a problem with that anime’s RAW, they need to fix each ep frame by frame or so .. but I am sure they said there’s a big problem within the RAW so it’s better for them as a quality group to release it in good condition.

    Aww, shame. I’m sure baseball anime is very upset. However, I not long ago discovered “Touch” thanks to some of comments on this site, so I’ll defend baseball anime and make it feel better about itself.

    Personally it’s the football stuff I’m not into… always hated the game and the associated firms of casuals, although I loved that old movie where th Yank kid goes to Brazil to learn soccer-fu from Pele…

    It’s because you are assuming two things:

    1. People read the older posts (maybe some do, but by far most people go to the comments section just to comment, not to _read_ the comments).
    2. People know how you would respond (they don’t, because usually they won’t be the same person and have no clue to begin with).

    So yeah, that’s why it’s kinda pointless to get annoyed at those questions, I think.

    It might be best to have a page dedicated to saying “don’t ask us” with a short “why”, and _always_ just link people to that whenever they ask.

    Hello Saizen san! I am contacting you regrading the translator position. I have been looking for a good quality subbing group for a while now, especially since I watch anime shows on a daily basis and sometimes I notice wrong Japanese translations. I am a native Japanese speaker (born&raised in Japan) but I’ve also lived in US for about 10 years so I know exactly how to translate little Japanese sayings or jokes. I also LOVE old school anime like Lupin the III and Ranma 1/2. I grew up watching Ghibli movies and Salormoon since I was a little girl, so I know a lot about anime. Not so much about new anime series, but I would love to translate any kind of anime! I also have my native English speaking husband to double check the grammar, so we are a translator & checker/editor team:) Let me know if we could help you guys!

    Heh, looked like a troll request. I mean, Saizen would take roughly 20 years to finish Kochikame. They’ve already got several projects going, so any more long series simply aren’t doable. It would take a singularly dedicated group to do it, one that could do 1 or more episodes per week consistently.

    I’d like the two 80s Jack London anime TV Specials to be tackled someday, Call of the Wild and White Fang, but I haven’t been able to find quality raws for either.
