Your friendly neighbourhood translator here! If you’re just joining us now, BanG Dream! is a show about Toyama Kasumi, a first-year high school student, who finds the sparkling and exciting thing she wants do in life: play in a girl band! So of course she starts working hard (in her own hyperactive manner) to make it happen, while having a lot of fun along the way.
<@heyman> Rimi is sweeter than a chocolate

I handle scary stuff about as well as Inoue so I’d never have thought I’d do a ghost-related show, but Re-Kan was light-hearted enough for me to jump on it, and in the end it ended up being a really fun show — much more so than I expected. I’d like to thank the whole team for their great work on the show. There’d be no releases without you. I’d also like to thank all the viewers. You rock.
Just as a heads up, there will be slight delays with episodes 7 to 9 of Re-Kan! due to me first working at a con and then being out of town. Sometimes RL gets in the way of more important stuff like fansubbing, sorry about that!
In other, unrelated news, as you may have heard, a continuation for Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata was announced a couple of days ago. You can rest assured I will (barring unforeseen circumstances) definitely be picking it up.
With these final two episodes, we’re finished with Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata.
I don’t remember when I’d have enjoyed watching or working on a show as much as on Saekano. For me, it has just the right mixture of happy, funny and sad; drama and comedy; realism and romanticism. I think the production crew has been working hard to make the show amazing, and I think they managed to pull that off. Of course, we shouldn’t forget Maruto Fumiaki-sensei for his great writing in the original LN and Misaki Kurehito-sensei for his character designs.
I’d like to thank my whole awesome team for Saekano: xMythycle for his timing and general enthusiasm for the show, even if he thinks Utaha is the best girl; Ojii for his editing and fixing the moments when I can no good into the English; Jocko for his superhuman typesetting and pink KFX; Lucidity for his QC and catching the worst typos; Pikminiman for encoding, as without him we would have nothing to work with; and Orillion for releasing the show, because nobody would see it otherwise (and TheThing for filling in for him for the last couple of episodes episode 10).
I would also like to thank our viewers. You’re awesome. Thank you. I hope you found our subs for the show passable.
This was going to be a paragraph about how I’m going to take a season’s break from translating airing shows, but because I changed by mind, I’ll instead just say that I’m doing Re-Kan next season. So see you soon!
Lucidity: I enjoyed working on Saenai quite a lot, mainly because everybody was so fast finishing up their designated task and wanting to push the next episode out as quick as possible… and then it lands at me and I keep stalling ;_;. It was a real blast working with altazure, Ojii, Grand Master time shifter Jocko, bro of bro’s xMyth, Pikman aka Pikminiman who filled in when I was busy getting my shit together IRL and Orillion, who likes .ass just as much as I do. Enjoy~
