New series suggestion thread
« on: February 18, 2006, 07:57:54 am »
Currently the only group doing sailor stars is doing a horrid job at it. (as in a compiled mplayer cvs wont play it  :'( ).

Considering the abysmal quality of the encoding from said nameless group and the fact that sailor stars will never be allowed on american shores by decree of the great butcher eisner, I formally request this group, which i've considered experts and subbing classics for years, take up the project.
Who are we who dare call ourselves the superior race?

WELL. Its like this. There may have been plans to infact, do exactly as you said, for exactly the reasons you said.
However, L-E has very few staff for the amount of projects we have. Yeah, I'td be awsome if we could toss ANOTHER series. Issue remains STAFF. Now, I know your intentions are really good here, but don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

The people over at Sailor Moon Center are currently in the process of buying the R2 disks of Stars as well, so there will be at least two groups working on it.  Just FYI.  ;)

HRM. Assuming they do good work, everything should be taken care of by them, then.

Personally I wouldn't really support the Sailor Moon Center because they're releasing DVD rips of licensed shows and they released rips of all the US released Sailor Moon DVDs.  Since Sailor Moon isn't licensed anymore they could fansub it themselves but I just don't think it's right to do straight rips of the US DVD's.  I'm personally buying all the R2 DVD's and would like to do a fansub of the whole series but haven't been able to find a translator.

Hello, I'm ALMOSt a newbie in this fansubbing business.  I know this is stupid question, but since I never had to bother about regions...whats this Region 1 and Region 2 thing?  Is there something known as 'region free'? ???  How is ripping from a US DVD legally different from ripping from a R2 DVD? ???

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvd_regions

Region codes are a stupid idea and are just a minor annoyance.

And yes there are DVD's that are "region free" and players that are "region free".

Now what this means in the context of fansubs is, a fansub group will not sub shows that have been licensed and released in their native country.  So when an Anime is licensed and released in the US, it is a region 1 disc.  Distributing those is a violation of US copyright, and would get the group in big trouble.

Now Japan is in DVD region 2.  Distributing those is a violation of Japanese copyright, but the companies don't seem to care much.  Because if they wanted, they could push the issue under the Berne Convention.

Now the UK is also in region 2, so if an Anime was licensed in the UK, any fansub group based out of there would also drop those projects.

So in short region codes are intended to hinder people from importing DVD's from other regions instead of getting the release that was intended for their region.

I hope I explained that well.

  Well, anyone is free to make a suggestion of an anime series that we should translate, but you have to realize that the group only translates animes that at least a few of the members have an interest in doing, so I'm not sure you should get your hopes up too high.
