Hello, and thank you for subbing the new Keroro show. The quality of your subbing is overall good, but there are some mistakes in it I want to bring to your attention in hopes you will correct these:- Keroro, as well as the rest of his platoon, are male, to clarify. (You used 'it'.)- Natsumi calls Keroro '(the) stupid frog'. (You used 'dull frog'.) This persists among official English manga and anime versions, with the English anime version mixing things up a little bit more on that end.- You translated 'Pekopon[ians]' as 'Earth[lings]', and while technically correct, that is the special word for what the frogs call Earth[people] and should be left in. This also persists in the English manga (where they call Earth "Pokopen") and anime versions.- At 2:20, you mistranslated a Gundam reference as "It started building a five-parts troop." (considering building Gunpla is Keroro's hobby, there's going to be quite a few of these, so be on the lookout.). Fuyuki is actually saying something closer to "He is building/just built his fifth GM (model)" (http://www.mahq.net/mecha/gundam/msgundam/rgm-79.htm). Keep in mind GM is pronounced "ジム” in Japanese.Once again, thank you very much for subbing this show; being an English speaking Keroro/Sgt. Frog fan is not the best these days, and to that end, any translator stepping up is doing a service.
Yep, eye-opening comment. Wanna check the subs before release?
Well, I'm sort of conflicted on that matter. I -would- like to help in any way I can, so I guess giving the subs a good once-over, or consulting for clarifying terms, quirks and such like I just did wouldn't hurt. However, to be honest, my Japanese isn't much past kindergarten level (knowing kana of course, a miniscule amount of kanji, and sentence structure enough to string things together somehow, without breaking out dictionaries) and I only really got the "gotaime no jimu ni..." thing through knowledge of that sentence structure and the context of the scene (and slowing down the playback speed in MPC, heh). I can majorly offer my Keroro and Gundam knowledge, though.Whatever you decide is fine with me. You can contact me through my email at email@example.com, where I can respond quickly as I can, barring school/work complications, or on Rizon IRC, where I go by "Haz"-- I'm available there, but not all the time.
