[subs] Last Friends  

Banner & icon credits: marikitdoodles

Update 2008.07.20: FULL SP .ASS & .SRT posted, as well as POL font (just realized maybe people don't have the one I used ^_^;;)

note#1: I will soon post a batch of all subs, edited and improved.

Scanlations of LF manga-prologue- can be found here

Things you will be able to find here:

English softsubs

All subs are timed using the RAWs provided @DA
Original script: どらまのーと弐 (unless otherwise stated)
All translation, editing, typesetting & QC: suketeru
Checking for HQ timing synchronization: d0ci
A special thank you to SARS fansubs (especially amrayu & ironicwave) who got me into timing in the first place, and for their precious tips on the matter (^^)

I realized maybe not everyone has the font I used for POL in the .ASS subs. If you saw it as huge Arial, then you don't !!! Download here. It's a zip file. Just unzip, and drag the file you find inside to the directory "C:\Windows\Fonts".

Since many had problems downloading the subs last time, I'll be uploading them as .ZIP archives. Hope that works for everyone.
Don't forget to give your subs file the same name as your video (except for the extension, of course).

thank you to spyefox, fujii_itsuki, zsuness, and nekochan23
Another thank you to 3peanuts for the help with one of the notes in 08.

note: in an earlier post I used the word competition. I just wanted to point out that I was joking (I did add *kidding* next to it). It seems I was misunderstood by some. Subbers (at least for this drama) are NOT in competition. Each one has his/her own circumstances and reasons for having early or late releases. Thank you for supporting everyone ne (^_^) fansubbers rule! XD

Thank You
Hey! Thanks for subbing the drama
I have one question
Now I know how much pain is subbing since I'm a subber myself
But I wanted to ask when are you likely to post ep.4 subs?
I've been refresging this page for like 3 days XD
But I'm still patiently waiting just wanted to know how much work is left
otsukare and good luck with the upcoming episodes
Thanks again

Re: Thank You
haha sorry about that. i was out of town this weekend so i couldn't work much on it. i've finished the round of initial translation and timing, and am now halfway thru the first round of editing, synching some points to video and spot translating. after that i have to apply styles and check everything once more for final editing, and to make sure i didn't miss anything. hmmm sounds like a lot of work, but the final phase shouldn't take long (maybe you didn't want to know all those details though XD). at any rate, i'm hoping to have it out by today (count GMT when i say by today ^_^)

THANK YOU! I suck at waiting, but I swear I refreshed this page every 5 minute yesterday, lmao. :))) ♥

An average 15-16% when it comes to rating, is good, right?
suketerusuketeru on May 6th, 2008 09:21 am (UTC)
LOL yeah i ended up posting it a coupla hours later than i thought. my PC's been acting up a little.
yeah it is said that that rating is really good ^_^ i don't think i ever cared about the rating as much as i am for this drama XD
