Welcome to the blog-tacular website for Mystery Fan Translation Group X. I will eventually get round to sorting out a more interesting design that this, but for now I just present to you my first release: Pretty Cure Splash Star episode 1, available from the MFTGX torrent page. Marvel as they reboot the series with new characters who are just like the old ones, in a story just like the old story!
Some words of warning: Firstly, I make no guarantee about the accuracy of the translation. There are only a small handful of lines that I wasn't entirely sure about, but they exist nonetheless. I don't think you need to be too worried overall though; it's a fairly simple show.
Secondly, there is a good chance that I will not end up subbing the whole series, since I am very good at starting things and not finishing them. That said, at this point I certainly intend to do it all. I am more likely to keep going in the long-term if (a) I know that there are people interested in the series, and (b) if I find people to help out, specifically with timing.
On which note... Is there anyone reading this who is interested in doing the timing for this series? No experience is necessary provided you feel you can do a good job (I had no prior experience before doing episode 1 and I think it turned out okay), so please contact me if you're interested. It would be much appreciated! In theory I could use help with some other aspects as well (typesetting, encoding) but those aren't nearly so time-consuming, so I'm less bothered. Mainly it's just that the translation is the fun part, so if possible I want to concentrate on that.
It also occurs to me that it would be great if there was someone with better Japanese ability than me who would be willing to look over my translations. I figure that's a bit of a pipe dream though =)
That's all for now. Any and all comments about both the show and the fansub are much appreciated (provided any criticism is constructive)! You can either post a comment here or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
