Battle Spirits Saga Brave Episode 3

Edit: All links added. Enjoy.

As for ‘am I going to do the next web series’, that entirely depends on what it is, what the release schedule is, and how good it is. We’ll see in the summer.
I’ll do direct download links and the sort tomorrow, because I’ve probably been breaking my record for most hours without sleep lately.

Battle Spirits Saga Brave Episode 2

After months, a new episode finally surfaced.

Like with the first episode, this was done entirely by ear because no captions exist. So, advanced apologies for any errors caused because of this.

Battle Spirits Brave 1-50

Full series, tweaked translation.

Now if you want to watch Saga Brave, you can catch up easily. If you’ve never watched Battle Spirits Brave, watch it. If you have watched it, watch it again.

This does have the DVD version of ep. 28, which had a scene that was censored from the TV broadcast. (It wasn’t anything remotely offensive, just had the misfortune of airing too close to the 2011 tsunami.)

Battle Spirits Shounen Gekiha Dan 1-50

This is my first time ever making a torrent. I’m not tech savvy and just BS my way through this whole process, so please let me know if it actually works.

This is the full series of Battle Spirits Shounen Gekiha Dan, per request. I do plan on re-releasing Brave as well, but give me some time.

Tomica Hyper Rescue Drive Head TV/ONA/Movie

Edit: New torrent link included, with better quality version of movie

While I’m at it (check the previous post if you’re looking for Saga Brave), I wanted to throw these out here, because I never put the links on my blog.

I know there’s a torrent out there for the TV series, but it’s dead. And I only shared the links to the ONA and movie in a couple places.

Please note that I had no involvement in subbing eps. 1-9. I only started with 10. But I uploaded them anyway. Just, all credit should go with the original anonymous subber. Also, these were done completely by ear. No captions to be found. So apologies for any errors which came up due to misheard lines.

Battle Spirits Saga Brave Episode 1

Well, this is a rush. As is probably obvious, I lost interest in Battle Spirits. Subbing Burning Soul weekly turned into a chore for me, and I would’ve been happy for the franchise to just stay dead and buried after Double Drive. I wasn’t even really that hyped for Saga Brave, but I loved every minute of this first episode. It’s a total love-letter to fans of the original, bringing back as much of the old staff and cast as possible. (I’m still holding out for Gilfam, who sadly was not in the first episode, but despite that, I still loved it.)

So, it’s not like I haven’t been subbing for a while, having worked on Pikaia and Drive Head. But getting back into Battle Spirits is kinda special, since it was the first show I worked on. I hope you enjoy.

Pikaia!! (Season 2) 7-13- Complete

Who knows if there will be a third season, but here’s the rest of what’s out now.

Pikaia!! (Season 2) 1-6

Season two adds a lot of new things to the table, and it’s a whole lot of fun.

Here’s a batch for now. Since the series is still ongoing, I’ll probably put the rest together when it’s done. Translations are done, but I still have to finish timing and editing. Guess I’ll have to see how long it takes for a raw of ep.13 to pop up as well.

Pikaia Season 1: 1-13 (Complete)

Before you ask, I’m not subbing Double Drive. Sorry.
I didn’t intend to fall down this hole again at all, but I got obsessed with a new show, and was disappointed to find that it had no subs, official or otherwise.

Actually, I watched the first season of Pikaia some time ago, thought it was pretty good, but figured it was a done deal. It was some weird educational short anime (15 minute episodes) after all. I didn’t even realize it got a second season until I saw a post about the first episode on a Japanese blog I frequent. But so far I’ve been loving the second season even more than the first. I just started with subbing S1 for sequence.

Note that I’m doing this all by ear, so there are probably some errors. I actually found the scripts to most (but not all) of the S2 episodes, so those should be better when I get to them.

Battle Spirits Burning Soul ep. 51

Final episode.
As of now, my decision is not to sub Double Drive. I’ll be watching it with an open mind, and maybe if I really like it I’ll want to translate it somewhere down the line (unless Crunchyroll or someone else picks it up), but I don’t want to devote myself to another year-long series by a writer I don’t particularly like. I have to say, there’s some fun things about subbing and it’s helped me with my Japanese a lot, which I appreciate. But it also involves tedious timing of often near 400 lines per episode and is overall a multi-step process that takes a lot of time, so it’s a job I think can only be done out of love. I just wasn’t enjoying Burning Soul nearly as much as I did the rest of the franchise, so I’ll leave it at that.
