I'm Still Alive...

...I'm just very, very busy. Fixing the scripts for a project this large is starting to get mentally draining, and the fact that I don't even know yet if the content owner will let me fix some of the bad subtitles means that I'll surely have to revisit them all multiple times. Editing a script for syntax, then retiming it, and then editing it again for content is about the most ass-backwards manner you could ever approach a large, multi-episode subtitling project, but in this instance it's exactly what I'm going to be doing.

This B-movie concept is surprisingly relevant.

I'm not complaining, mind you - I knew exactly what I signed up for, and I'm happy to have it. That just doesn't make it any less time consuming. With any luck I'll get permission to edit the entire project (what I'm doing now... x3?), which could keep me busy for... god, weeks? Maybe a couple months? It's a beautiful, terrifying thought, but one I'll have to ponder in the near future. For now, there's still scenes to re-time, spelling errors to not-yet-correct, and sanity to lose.

...holy shit. It sounds like I've found the man working on Fist of the North Star.

If that's the case, I highly doubt you can confirm or deny this. Just wanted to say that in the very unlikely case that I'm right, I'd love to interview you on my blog about the process you went through and your own thoughts and opinions of the series whenever it would be okay to do so.

Seriously. Anything you want to say about anything, just drop me a line. You can contact me at: emilio@blogofthenorthstar.com
