A while ago, I received a request to sub AKB48 Dokkiri Jougakuen 2011 from a frequent visitor to this site. If you remember watching it with English subs before, then you’d be right; there were four Shukan AKB episodes that featured a few clips from this dokkiri, all with English subs. However, after asking around, it appears no one has subbed the entire DVD (and if someone did, oops, I just wasted a good chunk of my life…). I figured what the heck, it’d be a nice challenge.
Anyway, this was a HUGE project. The video is about 2.5 hours in total, and honestly, I don’t think I’ll ever do something this big again, at least not alone. I’m not even sure if enough people will watch this to justify all the effort and time that went into it, but oh well.
For those of you who haven’t watched those Shukan AKB episodes, the basic idea of this dokkiri is simple: 48 AKB members have been divided into 2 teams, the pranked and the prankers. The members from the pranked group wear a lamp on their chest that flashes anytime their heart rate goes above a certain point. The member whose lamp flashes the most by the end of the school day will face an embarrassing punishment.
Since I can’t upload videos longer than an hour on DailyMotion, I’ve cut it into four different parts. It’s also in 480p since I couldn’t find a better quality raw.
