The future of L-E's project Yawara
« on: July 04, 2005, 09:33:35 am »
How far does L-E plan to go with Yawara?  I'm surprised this show never made it to the US through "offical" means, and I'm doubting it ever will.

I'm asking because I just found out that there's a Yawara movie and TV special.  I'm not sure where in the story the Movie occurs, but the TV special is apparently the end of the show (after 124 episodes!  wow!).

Also, is there anything that I (someone that doesn't know Japanese,  doesn't know how to typeset, or have the bandwidth to do anything useful) can do to help with the translation of this show?  Is there are way to donate?  Does the L-E team already have the DVD box set for Yawara? (not that I can afford it, but I can chip in)

I apologise if this is a duplicate post.

edit: Here is the URL for the translation of the Amazon page for the Yawara DVD Box Set.

Here is how things look...

We have Neko Creations scripts up to Episode 41. Episode 33 will be out within the next few days, it's currently in the QC phase. Episodes 34 - 41 should follow in a timely manner as they just require editing and some more typesetting from me.

After Episode 41 we will need to translate from scratch. Neko subbed up to Episode 45 however we were only given scripts up to 41. We have *something* in place for beyond Episode 41 but you'll know more about that nearer the time.

As for the TV Special and the Movie, I'm not 100% sure where the movie is but its definitely a bit further on in the series. We won't sub the TV special till after Episode 124. We intend to go right the way through to Episode 124 albeit it might take us a while ^^.

With regards to the Yawara DVD boxset. I *hope* to get it in Japan at the end of the year and I'll be working my behind off to save up spending $$ for the trip over there. I would try to import it however its a little on the expensive side at 110,000 yen from CD Japan. It rarely comes up on Yahoo Japan and when it does it usually works out cheaper from CD Japan. The trouble is that it would work out at about £700 as I would DEFINITELY get customs charges for it (or over $1000 in USD) so its urr kinda a bit steep. If truth be told it would cost even more than a return plane ticket to Japan O_O.

Hence due to the high cost I decided the best way to do it would be to try and track it down at a discount anime store in Tokyo. Our region 2 DVD source for GE999 was done this way so hopefully I can repeat that.

Hope this answers your questions...

Regards
