HKT Shakariki48! EP04 – English Subs

July 29, 2014 by


Another week, another member working part-time! Fuchigami Mai-chan will be the first second gen to try her hand at this whole working part-time thing. She mentioned how she wanted to work as a cashier at a supermarket in the first episode. Will her wish be granted?

Majisuka Gakuen Parody Skit (Fukuoka Evening Concert) – English Subs

July 26, 2014 by


As you may all know, HKT did a Majisuka Gakuen parody during their Kyushu Seven Prefecture Tour. In Oita prefecture, the Murashige-led Mentaiko Army faced off against the Chiyori-led Team Sukiyaki. They were then joined by the Motsukushi Family in Miyazaki, the Three Sisters of the Student Council in Kumamoto, the Lolita Alliance in Kagoshima, Team Pheromone in Saga, the Church of Meroppi in Nagasaki, and finally, the Ushiroyubui Osare Crew during the noon concert in Fukuoka.  However, just as things were finally beginning to wind down at the evening concert, a new villain confronts them. Is she the final boss? Or is there an unexpected, more sinister leader pulling all the strings?

This was a fun, albeit campy, skit that I feel was one of the highlights of this whole tour. It definitely injected a lot of humor into the concert and it’s awesome that they paid homage to one of AKB’s most ridiculous projects, haha. I wasn’t confident about some of the lines, so if you spot any mistakes, please let me know! (Lol, I just realized I made a huge mistake. They’re not going to raid the west, they’re raiding the east. I can’t believe I mixed that up. Sorry!)


Mirai to Wa? Type C Extra (Team KII Freestyle Rap Battle) – English Subs

July 25, 2014 by


This is a bit different from what I normally sub, but my friend on twitter forced kindly asked me to sub this KII extra from Mirai to Wa. Figured translating idols rapping wouldn’t be that hard, but oh believe me, it was. They use a fair amount of slang and insert random words to rhyme, and while that works in Japanese, it just ended up making some lines sound completely off in English. -.-

Anyway, the girls are divided into two teams; the talented Team Dasu and the fun Team Tucker. They’ll be judged on their flow, their rhymes, and their mic performance. Which team will win?!


Released: March 19, 2014 (Mirai to Wa? Type C Extra)
Members: Suda Akari, Takayanagi Akane, Yamashita Yukari, Kato Tomoko, Futamura Haruka, Sato Meiko, Takagi Yumana, Matsumoto Rina, Kato Rumi, Shibata Aya, Kobayashi Ami, Furukawa Airi, Oba Mina, Yamada Mizuho, Takeuchi Mai, and Uchiyama Mikoto

HKT48 no Odekake! EP64 – English Subs

July 19, 2014 by


I received a few requests to sub this episode dedicated to Chori and Tani. It’s their last time on Odekake!, unfortunately. The girls sit down with both Sasshi and Goto to talk about their impending transfers. They also discuss their relationship with each other, have their secrets revealed, and receive emotional letters from their closest friends in HKT.

Although they’re long gone, it’s great seeing how much the girls meant not only to the other members, but to Goto and the Odekake staff as well. It’s even more fantastic that they seem to be flourishing in their new groups. Go Chori! Go Tani!

NOGIBINGO!2 EP06 – English Subs

July 19, 2014 by


The timing is still off, but I realized some people may not have the raw files necessary to watch it with the softsubs. I’ve uploaded the video in its original state, but when I get it fixed I’ll reupload.

Anyway, on this episode, the outcome of the first gen versus second gen revenge battle will finally be decided. On the second half of this episode, the second gens will attempt to get closer to their first gen senpais by doing various missions aimed at shortening the distance between them. Will they succeed?

Sorry for the inconvenience.

HKT Shakariki48! EP02 – English Subs

July 14, 2014 by


This episode is a continuation of the last episode featuring Sakura working at a ramen store. With the store finally opening, Sakura will fully experience the craziness and intensity that comes with working at a popular ramen store on the weekend. Although she’ll be forced to do unpleasant, tiring work like washing dishes and chopping up onions, all her hard work will be rewarded in the end when she receives her paycheck.

NOGIBINGO! 2 EP05 – English Subs

July 12, 2014 by


Subshiro46, who have subbed episodes 1-4, have given me the ok to pick up where they left off and finish this series. Seeing that it’s only 12 episodes long, it shouldn’t take me that long to complete, I think. After I’m done, I’ll probably move on to NogiDoko.

Anyway, on this episode, the second gens come back with a special guest to take revenge on the first gens.  They compete in a series of battles to see which generation is stronger. Can the second gens prove that they can hold their own against their senpais?

HKT Shakariki48! EP01 – English Subs

July 9, 2014 by


Welcome to HKT’s brand new show, Shakariki48! The  idea is that the girls will work part-time at various places and use the money they earn to repay the fans who have supported them through thick and thin. By working earnestly, the members will learn the importance of hard work, humility, and money.

The first member to work part-time is Miyawaki Sakura. Where will she work?

New Subbing List

July 8, 2014 by

Hi, everyone.

Thank you for all your suggestions. 🙂 Unfortunately I won’t be able to do them all, but I’ll try my best to at least fulfill the ones that were requested more than once.

With that said, HKT’s Shakariki was the most popular choice so I will be picking it up. I’ll have the first episode out tomorrow, and I’m hoping I can keep up with it every week.

I’ll also be doing a few episodes of SKE’s Sekai Seifuku Joshi, but for this I’m going to be biased and sub the episodes I personally enjoyed. But if you feel strongly about an episode to the point that YOU NEED TO SEE IT, then let me know and I’ll probably do it for you.

For Nogizaka, would you guys prefer Nogidoko or Nogibingo 2? I still haven’t asked subshiro46 whether I could pick up Nogibingo where they left off (ep.4), but if they give me the green light I wouldn’t mind completing that series. However, if you prefer NogiDoko, please let me know what episodes you’d like to see subbed.

On top of that, I’ll be doing a few other requests here and there, like some dvd extras and whatnot. I should really be better organized and provide you with a concrete list of things I’m going to sub, but I’m quite lazy when it comes to things like that. Sorry!
