I hope you guys won't mind a little self-promotion, as it will benefit all Ayu fans in the long run if we can make it happen.
So, with the 15th anniversary, I think now would be a good a time as any to get this underway. Delirium-Zer0 and I subbed the NTV 2004 special a few years ago, and it was met with great success. Unfortunately, we found out two things: 1.) just two people working on a project is exhausting, and 2.) soft subs are a no-no. Someone ended up coloring ours and hardsubbing it to the video, then proceeded to upload it to YouTube without any credit. I think it's still up there actually, 4 years later.
Anyway, point being: have you guys seen the K-pop communities? It's insane how much stuff they have subbed, even for the new-and-upcoming groups. And it saddens me that we can't get one started for our precious Ayu, who's been around for 15 years.
Well, that's all about to change. Loon and I have discussed, and we've decided to take it upon ourselves to start a group. But like I mentioned before, we can't do it with two people. Here's what we have so far:
tasking (hi! ^^): graphics & promotion, uploading
Loon: timing, editing, and Quality Control
We need the following:
-Two (2) translators. I know some people translate more literally, while others more loosely. Two people can collab and decide what fits best, as well as get stuff done faster (most of the hassle is waiting on the translation)
-One (1) encoder. I'd do it, but my computer isn't the best. When I tried encoding the NTV special, it took like 3 hours -__-;
-I'd say at least one (1) more person to help me with my stuff, though it's not really required. At least if I'm not around, you can promote on Twitter, etc.
-And obviously, if you feel you can help out Loon with any of his positions, that'd be most welcome too.
I should add that the PVs will be low priority, considering that any one of us can easily use the translations provided here AHS and add them to a video. In fact, I believe someone has already been doing so. But anything else is fair game!
