That post is Bullshit.

The Delay has nothing to do with QC. Period. QC takes like 1-2 intelligent people, and a half hour, both of which are not hard to come by with the given staff.



o.O

A half-hour? You wish. Or rather... I wish. And QCers have actually become quite hard to come by given available staff recently. Face reality Masa, we could really use some more QCers.
My mind is like a sieve. It retains all sorts of interesting bits and lets the important stuff flow straight through.

Maybe you are unaware but we now have at least 2 special threads for posting this type of spam. The Official Troll Tread, and the Official Flaming Thread.

Apparently you aren't aware, but the next ep of GE999 has been sitting around waiting for 2 more QC's for going on a week now. Perhaps you find this acceptable, but perhaps some of the fans who would like to see this series released ASAP will feel differently.

Unless you have something useful to say, (or have actually taken the time to check out the current QC situation,) Please don't go around shooting off you mouth without any facts to back it up. The truth is, that currently more QCers are needed at Live-eviL in general to help speed along releases of this and many other series.

Yeah it was lying in the qc department for 2 days with only bobby doing a qc.  When no one else bothered, Blue_Mage, who rather dislikes GE999 and had already planned to stay away from qcing it, was kind enough to show flexibility and qc it....although we know the qc'ers generally qc stuff that they like, and Blue_Mage seems to qc about everything that comes in the way, even multiple qcs, in spite of being an editor for another group....unlike someone who says he cannot qc cause he's an editor and considers himself a former qc just because Yaoi opped him.

* Tsubasa looks at the 'Sun'.

And then Masakari, you were also suppose to submit a qc report for GE999 10.  Now where is it?

Just don't take qcing and qc'ers for granted.  Do some work yourself---If you care about GE and want it out, being a 'Right Hand Man' of the Matsumoto Division, you'd better help out.

And bobby, don't bother about Masa, he will be a hopeless troll wherever he goes, cause he has nothing better to do and never ever cares about other ppl's feelings and his retardedness leaves nothing to the imagination.

The truth is, that currently more QCers are needed at Live-eviL in general to help speed along releases of this and many other series.

I've looked at 10, and, honestly... QCers are not what we need. Now, About the only one I'll believe if they said we need more Qcers is Yaoiboy, as its absolute Bullshit as far as I can see. It doesnt matter how many QCers ganked the shit out of that ep, it still wouldnt fix the primary issue; TL FIXING.

If you think you can fix a non QC issue with QCers, then youre an idiot, but its not like i needed any more proof or assurance of that. By the time a QUALIFIED and GOOD TL FIXER actually FIXES a script, qc work is still necessary, but largely cosmetic; what you are trying to do with more Qcers at this point is like trying to apply makeup on someone who desperately needs plastic surgery...from Black Jack no less.

If you want to blame or demonize me, go ahead; it doesn't solve anything. What GE is missing is a fully competant, non-trainee fixer, and that is work that an average QCer just isn't capable of - that is not an insult, its just the facts.

Yeah I totally agree, but even after getting a decent t/l fixer, GE will still have to undergo three qcs.  But if there is no one to qc it now, there will be no one to qc the 10+ eps as well.

Bottomline is, you need a good t/l fixer AS WELL AS qc'ers interested in qcing it.  GE needs BOTH.

Ok, what I said previously wasn't intended to "demonize" you or personally attact you, so calling me an idiot and getting defensive about it was a bit extreme. I'm not an idiot, and I highly doubt that you are either. All I was trying to say was that in the big picture, every show needs 3 QC's. Right now almost no one wants to QC GE999. Its just common sense that if no one wants to QC it, it will take extra time to release it.

I wasn't implying that lack of QC's is the only thing tying up the show. I am sure you would know better than me if it has other issues which could stand to be fixed as well. But I have no control over those other issues.

The only reason I made this post in the first place was because I was requested to do so by Suzaku, who was getting fed up with waiting a week plus for the required QC's. (As it stands we are STILL waiting for one more QC by the way.)
So perhaps instead of spending all this time telling me how stupid and wrong I am. If you think there are other more important things that need to be fixed with the show, take the initiative do something about it. If nothing can be done about it well too bad, but something can be done about the lack of QCers which are needed in general and not only for this show, so if you don't mind please quit flaming about it and allow us to work on fixing one of the issues that we do have control over.

Clearly, Galaxy Express 999 needs some long-term lovin'. I think we should put this project ON HOLD until we can get a quality, DEDICATED translation checker for it. I am very disappointed with how this is turning out. :( I love this show... in fact, it is the reason I came here! Come on, let's give this show the respect it deserves! Let's give it the same quality it enjoyed in the first 8 episodes, or not do it at all.
Or... am I barking up the wrong tree here? Is this show not as good as I think? Are we wasting our time with it? ???

In short, I will not work on Galaxy Express 999 anymore until we get a quality TL checker on it. I am really disppointed about this! :'(

Any qualified people out there: please step forward!!

Thank you.

Ok, so to condense the important points from the last 9 posts:

1) Please come QC for Live-eviL. People are needed for this show as well as in general.

2) If you have the skills and are willing to step forward, GE999 needs a dedicated TL checker.

3) Until this stuff happens it seems unlikely that fans will see much more from this show for awhile, so if you care about it, come help out yourself, (or bug any friends of yours who have the required skills to do it  ;) )

If you are interested in QCing check out the Come QC for Live-eviL thread in the Recruitment Center forum. If you feel you have the necessary skills for TL checking, either talk to us about it on IRC, or send a PM to someone. Preferably someone from the Matsumo division like Yaoiboy. Hope to hear from you dedicated fans soon!!!  :D

You asked for it you got it.

I have found someone willing to do T/L work for GE999.
His name is Nakagawa Masahiro.
As you can tell from the name, he is Japaneese, and from the chats I have had with him he is quite able to hold an english conversation meaning that he should be quite up to the task of T/L work on GE999 on his own or with the aid of a friend of his{known as Darkwing :P} (who was the one who brought him to my attention)

I anticipate only a slight learning curve as he familiarizes himself with aegisub and the like. I see no problem in this.

He Downloaded a copy las night and got a copy of the latest script of #10 from me as well as the Q/C AVI. I will work with him to show him the ropes if needed.

In his own words, he should have no problem like say doing an episode a weekend after he gets done with a major school event after Sep 15th.

 :o ;D :D
I really hope he works out cause I wanna get GE99 moving! =^-^=

Meow Baby!

Yay! That is excellent news!! Kudos to you for going out and finding someone to TL check. Now if we can just find even 1 more QC person with an interest in this show we will be really on a roll!  :D Good job suzaku!!!!  ;D

Oh no. Masakari is no retard. He says things straight and that's one thing to admire. (very good sense of comedy too I might add.) Im not saying that he's right or wrong on (how would i know), but judging from stuff he has posted here I think main problem between you guys is chemistry.

Instead of bitching about eachother try to get along. It's not so hard even if you're so very different. Tho im sure Masa enjoys this little play.  ;D

Whatever. I hope to see next episode of GE999 soon. Great work so far on quality..now show us some quantity.  ;)

??? ??? It's the best show, but everything else you say I have to agree.

For me this lack of interest is really hard to understand as 90% of anime i've seen doesn't even compare to this. Everyone I've introduced to this show (thanks to your work) has loved it. Even a lovely girl at my workplace always asks if there's any new episodes out to show her. :) But here... it's all so quiet.

Maybe the difference between todays main stream anime fan and people who like Matsumoto series - which there seem to be many - is so different that you haven't just reached the right audience and potential fansubbing staff for this series.

You have no right to comment on that specific section of my post since you're not staff.  You haven't seen enough of him.
