Just the subtitle file for the episode of Urasawa Naoki’s Manben featuring Manga Taisho recipient Higashimura Akiko. They comment on footage the crew took of Higashimura’s studio, mainly captured on the deadline day for her newer series, Yukibana no Tora. It also discusses Higashimura’s other work, particularly Kakukaku Shikajika.
The subs I did are timed for the raw file I was able to find, which is 46 minutes long and has the actual Manben content kicking off about 37 seconds in. I got that here.
Anyway, the .ass file is here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/ev8eb3swav16n25/Manben_Higashimura_ENG.ass
Edit – It’s on youtube now, apparently:
Note: Please don’t beat me up about the timing of the dialogue subtitles. The dialogue in the show itself is quite rapid back and forth and I purposely let them linger on-screen for a couple seconds to make sure people had a reasonable amount of time to read them. I did my best, kay?
Personal note: The translation took about 2 weeks of on-and-off work, and it was super fun. There’s one more article I have in the pipeline now that should take a bit less time, being like half a magazine page instead of 6000 words requiring typesetting as this one did.
