Here is Chaos;Head 02. We had a lot of encoding and typesetting issues that delayed this, as well as our other two shows. And just as a reminder, we will also be releasing a v2 of Chaos;Head 01 with a few minor changes and fixes based upon viewer feedback.

Changed stuffs for ep1v2:

We’re v2ing due to consistency for later episodes, the main changes you should notice from now on are:

Ensuu is not EMS (the abbreviation of the game in English), nor Ensue (which was what the games translators decided to translate it to, they thought it was an English word D:), but rather it’s just a simple abbreviation of the romanized version of the name of the game Empire Sweeper Online. The extra ‘u’ is added because the Japanese has a habit of abbreviating things to four syllables. Since EMS is causing confusion, we’re just going to put Empire Sweeper as a full reference.

E n su u = Enpaia Suuipaa Onrain + u (to complete the 4 syllables habit)

Secondly, the infamous line sono me dare no me, we translated it to “Those eyes… whose eyes are they” while the game translators translated it to “Whose eyes are those eyes”. Since both of them sound fairly awkward, we decided to go with “Whose eyes are those”.

Finally, there are some minor tweaks in the v2, like the change of raw to a transport stream, fixing some typesetting, but they are not as important as the two mentioned above.


P.S. <@Mango-chan> RIMI IS MAI WAIFU

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    I hope you get all your problems straightened out so this show becomes less of a hassle for you to sub. This is definately my favorite show this season so I look forward to it being subbed by you.
    Especially since you the only good group subbing this AT ALL.

    We are all relying on you. haha

    Also, I’m not really sure why you are releasing the first episode again. The only thing I noticed wrong or weird with it was that a “u” was missing from the website Shogun gave him.
    I don’t think that’s a reason for a re-release.
    But I’m looking forward to it all the same. Something more to watch when I am bored. haha

    Ensue is a word. It means to follow as a consequence. Anyway, I do appreciate the release of episode 1, version 2 as well as episode 2. Accurate and easy to understand subtitles FTW! ^^

    If you ever want help with proofreading in the future then I’m ready and willing.

    I know it is a word, but in this case it doesn’t make sense…

    For some reason, your subs only show up when I use zoom player with codecs. They don’t show up with a proper font on mplayer osx extended or vlc (for windows). Can you fix this please?

    it’s most likely your problem.

  10. @Fidyyuan
    Could you please write your address and we will come over asap and fix you up with some new codec’s (maybe even a codec pack :O) and a media player that doesn’t suck.

    Hope to hear from you again

    Sweet releases.

    Saw an extremely minor thing in episode 2. The opening is not in the chapters…
    Of all your releases, this is the only error I’ve spotted so far…

    Loved it. Thanks for this show. There’s a degree of professionalism in your subs that I have yet to find in any other group.

  33. @Mercfh
    Are you a guy or a girl(like me)? xD

  34. Thank you !

    It would be better if you just released a patch like Menclave did for Gundam 00 so that people with bad connection like me wouldn’t have to download the file again. Sorry for being ungrateful, I don’t know is it hard to make that kind of patch …If it is, sorry againg.

    Any kind of patch wasn’t going to change the video source as well as typesetting problems. Making a patch for simple subtitle issues would have been easy, but not for other things that were changed in this version.

    Not that I’m positive this is going to change anything, but I just felt like giving my opinion…

    I thought that “Those eyes… whose eyes are they?”, or even the other translation fit better as translation than what you guys decided to use. I felt that the repetition of the word “eyes” gives the expression a more eerie feeling. It’s not just because the translation feels more complete, but leaving just “Whose eyes are those?” feels a little bland.

    Anyway, just my two cents.

    no, it’s the same, in jp, declaring your subject in the beginning is only natural… so it just translates to “Whose eyes are those”, putting 2 ‘eyes’ in one sentence sounds wrong.

  42. AngelLily
    6:42 am on October 21st, 2008

    Just so I don’t sound like a complaining leecher, everything else looks simply wonderful. Thank you very much for the quality job you’re doing with the series. :]

    7:44 am on October 21st, 2008

    Thanks for the reply.

  44. Lee
    1:31 pm on October 21st, 2008

    On the subject about the quote, I agree with AngelLily because of the nature of the series so far. I think it would have worked great if it was splt into two lines. However, the dialog seemed a bit too fast to allow it.

    Or even, “Those eyes… Whose are they?” although the translation is more “loose”.

    I trust xess with his seemingly infinite knowledge of Japanese grammar, so I won’t complain if he decides to keep it as it is now.

    …wat fix’d

  45. @Mercfh
    Maybe I do. xD
    Just kidding.
    You men are just not to be trusted. -snickers- x’3
    Lawl, kidding. xD

  48. AngelLily
    7:55 am on October 22nd, 2008

    To the person that replied to me, I’ll trust you on that, since I’m sure you’re more knowledgeable in Japanese than me. But to me, it still feels a little bland. But this is personal preference, so yeah.

    Thank you for replying :3

  49. I dont know if anyone else noticed, but the karaoke for the OP changed colors from green (epi 1) to blue (epi 2).

    Is that on purpose?

  50. Yes suiton, it is, next episode will feature a brownish-orange color, look forward to it ๐Ÿ˜‰
