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:
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
