  1. Strange choice when this is already (hard) subbed on Avistaz tho in lo vid quality….thought I’d watched it….and I had. There are so many totally unsubbed works that better deserve your attenrion

    • Not really, I picked up the project based on the genre and it not having very much dialogue. The version over at AvistaZ is of very poor quality. I see the list of projects that can be transcribed getting longer and longer, but not that many are picking up older dramas. I don’t know Japanese well enough to translate a complete drama. Do you mean timing Japanese subtitles? What dramas are you thinking of?

      • Just a quick comment as I need to be elsewhere…………yes quality is appalling but it is subbed, can’t remember how well, have to think about which dramas as, if they aren’t subbed I cross them off till whenever in the faint hope they are! (and I mean English subs, can’t read (or understand) Japanese)

  2. Hana No Ran (1994) Kurama tengu 2008 Kita no Kuni kara 1981-2002 (hugely successful series followed by many movie specials some of which remain unsubbed) Masshiro 2015 (only first 3 eps from 10 are eng subbed) Skyhigh season 2 2004 JyouOu deadons 2&3 2009 & ? (some of S2 MAY be subbed – note R rated series) Abunai Deka 1986
    These are old series that I know aren’t eng subbed, there are many others that I haven’t a memory of

    • Subtitles are available for Kita no Kuni kara, both the drama and specials. See the “Quick Links” menu at D-Addicts. Like I said before. I don’t know Japanese well enough to translate a complete drama. Translating and transcribing are two different things.

  3. Re: Kita no Kuni kara…………..torally missed that 2020 do, THANKS.

    Translating and transcribing comment….ah now I understand your aim, that’s my path too, I watch something I like where the subs (in my eyes) are lacking and I feel compelled to redo. I must return one day to Maison de Police (2019) where i started a redo but dropped off…only a moderate series but had some charm.
