Planning a Forest Visit

Saturday, June 14th, 2008

Wow, talk about biting off more than I could chew here! If I took a smaller portion, I would have had this complete many months ago Because of the sheer amount of time and effort I put into it, I ended up slacking off most for a few months, so I’m going to post it as-is, even though it’s incomplete. I’ll use much smaller portions from now on. Otherwise, I’ll make no progress in learning new words.


Cardcaptor Sakura: The Mini Bootleg

Monday, March 10th, 2008

This is yet another release of the AnimeCartoon copies of the episodes, but not released by AnimeCartoon. What’s special about this release is that it comes on only two dual-layer DVDs. It may read “Multi-aspect Include 16:9 Widescreen Digital Video With High Quality”, but don’t let that fool you. This is 70 episodes across two dual-layer DVDs, and at a much lower quality than the eight single-layer DVD releases out there.


Cardcaptor Sakura: The AnimeCartoon Bootleg

Monday, February 25th, 2008

The company which releases “AnimeCartoon” DVDs is a known bootlegger (and also goes by Anime Studio, among other names). The next bootleg I’m looking at is an AnimeCartoon “release”. What I’m not convinced of, however, is that AnimeCartoon is the one who’s done this release. It looks to me like a Malaysian bootlegger bootlegged the bootlegging AnimeCartoon’s bootleg. If I hadn’t started this review before realizing this, I would have reviewed the AnimeCartoon bootleg before this one, then compared this release with it.


General Speech Patterns in Cardcaptor Sakura

Sunday, February 24th, 2008

I’ll be (slowly) doing a series of posts on dialogue translation, using Cardcaptor Sakura as the material. Whether or not I can make it through all 70 episodes, I don’t know, but I imagine many things will come up again and again, and I’ll eventually give those their own pages. In the meantime, I’ll be setting this page aside for character mannerisms and repeated speech patterns.

Another easy start, with a line mostly in English.
