Video Subbing: Nasubi (Ep 1 & 2) from Susunu! Denpa Shounen
Hello again people,
I'm back with another video. It's only a 10 minute one so it was very quick to do.
It's a request that I received quite some time back which I found interesting, but got stuck in the line a bit, etc etc. Well, I felt like getting started on it so here it is.
It's from a show called "Susunu! Denpa Shounen" the follow-up show for "Susume! Depna Shounen". The only difference there is the "nu" and "me" switching in the "Susume/nu" part. This was because the hiragana "nu" and "me" characters look similar.
Check wikipedia for a bit more on the show
The videos that I'll be subbing will be from the Prize Contest Life section of the show featuring Nasubi, a strange looking (Nasubi means eggplant) but loveable guy that gets locked in a room and told to try and live solely on the prizes that he win through contests on magazines. Oh yeah...and all of this while butt naked.
It was a very shocking and controversial thing to do even by the standards of Japanese TV back then (90's), but it cemented the show's place as an iconic part of Japanese television history. It's kind of like a sick psychological experiment, and apparently Nasubi went through some tough times with issues like isolation, boredom, frustration and so on, although these aren't shown on TV......
Well I'll let you find out the rest through this video and the rest that I will sub from now on...
.....The only problem is that this is the only one I have. There used to be some on a video streaming site (can't remember the name....) which I watch, but they have since been deleted. If anyone has the rest, please upload them for me and others!
