Sekai No Hate Made ItteQ: Berry Picking World Championship in Finland


Hello again,

Here's a short video I've been working on.
It is a segment from the show, "Sekai No Hate Made ItteQ", a "mystery solving and adventure tv show". Whatever that is. Well that's what the show calls itself, anyway.

This particular segment is a popular series featuring the comedian Miyagawa Daisuke traveling around the world to participate festivals of different countries. These have ranged from well known festivals like the Running of the Bulls festival in Spain, to virtually unknown festivals where you catch muddy eels in South East Asia.

Anyway, it's fun to see what different cultures do in their spare time, and may be interesting for you to see Japanese entertainers hanging around outside Japan.

Foreigners' Opinions Of Japanese People from "Arita and Matsuko and Men and Women"



Yep.
Wow.
I've actually done a post!

It has been half a year, basically, since the last one.
I'm sorry to those who have depended on this site as a source for Japanese shows, especially since it seems like less people sub now than they used to as well! However this blog just remains a sort of hobby, and is something that my life isn't based around. Especially nowadays, as you would have noticed.

To be honest, I haven't watched a full episode of Japanese TV for about a year now (I think). At least, I don't watch it regularly like I used to in the past, and I've lost interest in it too.

Even so, I am still interested in bringing you guys some nice treats, sometimes. So be patient and you might get one from time to time.

This one is from a show which has since been cancelled from TV (I think). I thought they had some relatively interested episodes though. Particularly episodes featuring international people expressing their opinions about Japanese people, society and culture.

.........and so that's what I've subbed.
I thought you people would find it interesting too, since I assume that a lot of you would be like the guests on this show. 

Hope you enjoy it.

TRANSLATION NOTES

Burmese Harp
Burmese harp is a famous Japanese book and film set in Burma at the end of WW2. It is a standard novel that school kids in Japan read. I highly recommend people to read or watch the film.

Ghana Chocolate
Ghana may be world famous as a huge exporter of cocoa beans, but the perception that chocolate and Ghana are connected is much stronger in Japan due to a popular chocolate brand name called "Lotte Ghana Chocolate".


Lamu

Made a bit of a mistake in the translation.
The Englishised name of this character is actually "Lum".
But ahh well. Fuck it.

This is a scantily clad alien character from the anime series Urusei Yatsura.

Won't be a particularly nice sight if an old dude was wearing this costume.

Hitoshi Matsumoto's Suberanai Hanashi 7 [English Subtitles]



Hi there.

So the long wait is over, and here it is, the next installment to Hitoshi Matsumoto's Suberanai Hanashi.

Going by logical order, I should be releasing episode 6, but I decided to skip that one, as it just got comedians to retell particularly popular stories that they had told in past episodes. So basically I thought, "F** that shiz" and just did 7. Hopefully you have no problems.

As you probably noticed, I've been very very inactive on this blog recently. Unfortunately you will have to expect much of the same from now on, for about a year. I have priorities outside of subbing that require more attention now and therefore can't spend so much time doing this.

Please understand.


Anyway, here it is.

Broken Links

While I've been absent from this blogsite, it seems several videos have been deleted from wherever I uploaded them. Some of them are newly deleted, some of them old.

Main culprits are Lincoln and Ametalk. Unfortunately, mediafire and dailmotion doesn't accept them because they recognise them as protected material, and so I can't upload them there, and many other places.

In the past I have tried other alternatives, but it seems they have since deleted themselves.

To be honest, I have no motivation to search for usable sites to upload them onto.

So I'd like to ask someone who has the files to upload them somewhere and let people know, or notify me of a good place to upload, and I'll try and get around to doing that job myself.
