General Forum / Let Us Hear About Your Fansubbing Service Time
« on: November 19, 2017, 03:38:32 am »
First of all, let me apologize if there is already a thread like this here. I'm not going to bother weeding through 14 pages.  :P Anyway, for all you subbers out there, please let the rest of the interwebs know how long you've been subbing now. I know some of you are approaching or have approached pretty impressive milestones.

As for me, I've been subbing as a part of Live-eviL for over 9 years now. Doesn't seem that long, but it's the truth. I'll reach my 10 year anniversary as part of the group next March. In regards to subbing in total, been doing that, on and off, for over 11 years now.  I'm what you can call an "under the radar subber", so even with my lengthy service time, I'm still not that well-known (at least I think). :o

After about five years, I think I'm decent as a QCer, but I still have ways to go to master the English language from a phrasing perspective, never having lived in an English-speaking country.

I pay decent attention to details, though, which is a positive in the QC business  :D

Ah yes, the ever humble CP. A true sign of an amazing and highly skilled subber, IMHO.  8)

Not anymore, since you revived it a little bit with your post.  :P

So it has been more than two years now since the tragic day that affected many of us. They weren't kidding when they said "time flies". Anyway, even after two years, CP's passing and him not being here with us still pretty much feels just as surreal as it did back then. I sometimes still feel that he will just log on to IRC and we will chat like the good old days. I'm sure some of you out there feels the same way. I still think about CP almost every day. Actually, I honest think that one of the reasons and motivations (even if they are by habit or just something subconcious) for me to continue on fansubbing and keeping in touch with people whom do the same thing is thanks to CP and what he instilled in me. Even though I've been much, much less productive than I used to be as subber, sadly. That's how much he means to me and how much of an influence he had on me. And once again, I would like give a huge thanks to him for that. How much longer will I continue to fansub? Well, that's definitely the million dollar question. Who knows what life has in store for me in the near and far future. But as long as I have the time and the drive/interest in subbing, I will continue on forth. Not just for myself, but for my fellow subbing peers/friends, fans of old/unsubbed/underappreciated anime, and all my former fansub peers/friends whom have either passed on from this world or have gone separate ways.

Okay, back with a few more.  ;) The quality of these are going to vary, since I just do them on the fly and very randomly.

Okay, so I was pretty bored earlier, so I made this little web comic like thingy. It's nothing special, but hopefully it's not super crappy either.  ;) Well, I hope you guys enjoy it. I may make more of it, if I get bored and/or get inspired.

General Forum / Re: nOObs to this forums introduce yourself HERE
« on: August 11, 2016, 09:00:47 pm »
Ah, so you decided to introduce yourself, MizunoKamo? LOL

Anyway, glad to have you in our ranks. Thank you for deciding to help us out. It's very much appreciated. It's cool that you prefer to watch old school anime, considering you're still a young dragonfly. A lot of young anime fans like yourself today tend to prefer the newer, trendier anime. Of course, there are always exceptions. I hope you decide to stay with the group for a long time and help us release more old school anime for all the anime fans out there to enjoy.  8)

*Please make this a sticky thread. Thanks.*

Yeah, I know I'm jumping the gun here a bit, but I though I would create this now to give people time to post their thoughts and etc and figure out what they want to say. As we all know, real life (offline priorities) can get in the way sometimes.  ;) Anyway, as you may have guessed already, we'll be posting our thoughts, feelings, memories, and etc about our dear departed friend, CP, here. Anyone can post in this thread. I won't make any rules that limit feedback from only Live-eviL staff members or fansubbers that worked with CP throughout the years. Why? Because that wouldn't be fair. I'm sure there are some non-fansubbers out there that had the honor of getting to know CP and have some fond memories about him.

Okay, I guess it's only fitting that I start this off, since I created this thread. I'll try not to make a wall of text.  :P

I knew CP for around eight years before his unexpected passing. I first got to know him a short while after joining Live-eviL over eight years ago. The first time I talked to him, he came off as a geniunely nice guy with a passion for old school/underappreciated anime. What left a really good impression about him after our first chat was he was so humble and friendly. He was a prime example of the term "nice guy", IMHO. Always willing to chat it up, joke around, give advice, listen to what you had to say, willing to help out... the list goes on and on. I don't think I ever saw him mad in all the years I knew him. He was always so positive, happy, and laid back. It honestly rubbed off on you, whether you liked it or not. His "positive aura" effected many people in good ways. You can ask anyone who knew him and I'm sure they would agree to this. Throughout all my years in the fansubbing scene, I've had the pleasure of getting to know and work with a lot of cool people/good subbers, but honestly, CP was the best one. No offense to the rest of you cool subbers out there, of course.  ;) CP was the total package. He was infinitely dedicated, always willing to help out in a moment's notice, never complained, worked fast and efficiently, VERY reliable, and genuinely loved fansubbing and what he did in the process. On top of that, as stated above, he was such a great guy. I was always amazed that he was the first one in our group to QC any new stuff that need it. Sometimes, I felt bad that we relied so much on him for QCing things. But of course, he never minded and was glad to help out. That was one of the many things I admired and respected about CP. He was truly a hard worker, all around. Definitely a rare breed in the fansubbing scene.

On IRC, I used to chat with him all the time. He was always happy to exchange stories and etc with me and everyone else he knew. Our conversations were always so soothing and uplifting. I always looked forward to talking to him again. CP could brighten up your day, if you were having a bad one. He was like Live-eviL's unofficial cheerleader.  ;D I wish I was able to meet CP in person before his untimely passing. I remember having several different conversations on IRC about that. He told me once, "If you're ever vacationing in Sweden, we should meet up." Of course, I said that I would, if I ever was in his neck of the woods. If I'm able to, I would like to one day go to Sweden and pay my respects at his grave. It's the least I can do for a dear friend.

Aside from being an avid fansubber, CP was an avid anime fan. I remember him always telling me things about what he was currently watching and what he wanted to watch in the future. He would somtimes ask me for advice on what to watch, which I was more than happy to give. I can remember I once asked him if he has seen the ARIA anime franchise. He told me that he hasn't yet. I remember teasing him about not having watched it yet. He told me he definitely would watch them at some point because he liked slice-of-life anime like ARIA. I wonder if he ever got a chance to watch it before he passed away. If anyone knows, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it.

Alright, I guess I'll wrap it up. I hope this stuff is at least somewhat interesting and/or meaningful to the rest of you.

Yes, but what would be appropriate subject matter for such a project? :o

Something like "For our dearly departed, but not forgotten, friend, CP" or "Homage to an irreplacable friend";)

General Forum / In honor of our dearst friend, CP
« on: August 09, 2016, 05:52:30 pm »
So I've been thinking for awhile that since the one year anniversary of the unexpected, tragic passing of our dearst friend, CP, is coming up next month, that we should do something special to honor his memory. Maybe like a special release or something. I, for one, would be very honored to be a part of something for this. Believe me, I would be more than happy and willing to do whatever is in my fansubbing power/abilities to make this happen. Anyway, I'm interested in hearing feedback on this. What do the rest of you guys and gals think about this proposition? Thanks in advance.  :)

Episode 16 has been released. Go and get it while it's still hot.  ;)

Live-eviL Recruitment Center / Re: NOW RECRUITING: Translator(s)
« on: September 30, 2014, 09:47:57 pm »
We definitely could use another translator/translation checker or two to help us out on our ongoing projects. If you like or don't mind on working on older, classic anime and think you have what it takes to be a translator/translation checker, feel free to head over to our IRC channel, #live-evil@irc.rizon.net or post a reply here. Talk to either Mamo-chan, Suzaku, or any other ops (the people with the "@" mark by their names) in the channel about this. Oh yeah, you don't have to have any fansubbing experience, as long as you're fluent enough in both Japanese and English. However, having fansubbing experience is always a plus. Of course, please don't apply if you're still currently studying Japanese in school, took Japanese courses in school in the past and have not used it in a long time and/or "lost your skills" or have just been watching anime for most of your life. In all honesty, translating and doing translation checks at a competent (acceptable) level takes much more than the aforementioned things. Anyway, feel free to apply if you think you have what it takes. Thanks.

Live-eviL Recruitment Center / Re: We need a TIMER and new Quality Checkers!
« on: September 30, 2014, 09:08:15 pm »
tl;dr: message Tofusensei in #live-evil on irc.rizon.net to learn more.

Er... disregard this because Tofusensei is no longer with us. Message either Mamo-chan, Suzaku, or anyone else with the "@" mark by their names.

But as Tofusensei mentioned, we're a bit lacking in the QC department right now, so we could always use more help. So, if you think you have what it takes to be a QCer or are an experience one, please feel free to apply. We're a group of long time subbers(for the most part) and are pretty interesting people, so I'm sure you'll enjoy working with us.  ;)
