Mysterious Cities of Gold
« on: September 19, 2006, 10:46:16 am »
It's come to light due to a recent thread on AnimeonDVD that the show Mysterious Cities of Gold's licensing status looks very in question.

Yeah it got dubbed and everyone remembers that but it's been so long since it aired and the total lack of info / legitimate English DVD release / no knowledge of who owns the English righs or if they've expired has lead Animesuki to say that if someone subs it they will (unless someone comes forward and sends nasty C&D letters) consider it an unlicensed show and list it.

Hence I'm laying down the gauntlet. If any J->E tl'ers here love the show so much. If they volunteer their services as tl'er for it Live-eviL will sub Mysterious Cities of Gold with original Japanese audio track and direct J->E tl's and I will go out and buy the R2J's.

What says you all?

Haha,
* Tsubasa always does the opposite of what she is told.

Well, what happened with Deathnote while you were gone is the answer. Some other staff might go  :o :o, and convince an already-busy-with-t/l-responsibilies to sub and declare staff confirmed. Hence increasing the chance of reducing the release rate of the older stuff. Well, this is rather unlikely in case of this very old show since people won't categorize it as 'likely to bring new fans to L-E if we sub it'.

As for recent shows, I don't might translation checking occasionally provided it won't get in the way of smooth progress of my other projects, but I really think we should only do them when we're doing them joint, the t/l and qc being the other group's responsiblity.

As for this one, get a decent, fluent, and fast t/l with some hours to give to us and who is really motivated.

That's terrible news. I was going to buy the DVDs when they came out. I've been looking forward to this for quite some time.

Which means I would love to see this get subbed.
My mind is like a sieve. It retains all sorts of interesting bits and lets the important stuff flow straight through.

There's an excellent unoffical 8-DVD set of MCOG floating around. The author of this DVD set is selling it from his homepage: http://home.comcast.net/~skutt/mcog.html

This DVD set is excellent. It's got most (if not all) of the missing scenes that were cut from various versions etc (there's a list of these if you follow the link above). It's IMHO waste of time translating this.

It's also been officially released on DVD in France, Belgium, Japan, Canada and Germany.

MCOG is probably my most favority series of all time.

I'm from Belgium, they came out on dvd here. I have no idea however if they were dubbed or subbed, but...

I think (read: THINK) a friend of mine has em, I'll check with him, maybe it's some sort of a start...

ps: for those of you who want to see the original intro  :o

Seems almost everyone knows how to obtain the DVDs but the problem still remains...no translator. Odd...I mean so many people seem to love this series but no one is volunteering to translate it  ???
