Yet another Gaki-no-tsukai update

Okay, this will be the last post about Gaki no Tsukai I’m making on foregroundnoises.
First off, after the copyright strikes I’ve decided to open a new youtube channel in which I’m going to upload new gaki no tsukai clip (the first one will be uploaded within the next 24 hours), and as a support web page for my youtube channel / uploads / collabs / everything dealing with gaki-no-tsukai I’ll be using this other wordpress page with the most stupid name ever, Shionの使い.
In other words, foregroundnoises won’t deal with Gaki-no-Tsukai anymore, but I’m willing to start translating / subbing again.
Music will stay here, Gaki will go there.
Of course the Gaki page on this wordpress will stay and display all the news I wrote up until now.
New posts on foregroundnoises are coming soon, I’ve been quite busy lately.
Thanks for reading, see ya!

Downtown Talk: What happens when you die?

Translator’s Notes

I know, I know.
It’s been a long time and I come back with a low-quality, short and kinda pointless video.
My bad.
But don’t you want to know the secrets of life and death that Matsumoto knows and shares with the world?
On a side now, that’s probably my lousiest video ever.
I don’t even know what that chime-like sound is.
Forgive me.
I decided to upload it anyway just to say “Hey, I’m still alive!”
By the way, there are high chances that I’ll work on the translation of this year Batsu Game, and of course I won’t stop upload here on youtube.
Also, on a side note, I deleted my previous twitter account, because I didn’t like how I was using it.
I’ve made a new one, though, in which I’ll display only news and few tweets.
If you don’t want to miss any update, be sure to follow me!
And of course, subscribe to my channel here, because more is yet to come!
See you next video!!

Gaki no Tsukai members first contact with Pepper robot

Translator’s Notes

After 2 months of nothingness I’m back with a clip so short you’ll have to watch like 10 times to feel satisfied. Totally not worth the wait!
But hey, that’s better than nothing, I guess.
This clip is from a recent footage (September 2014, I guess).
As Tanaka reads a fan letter who writes about a famous talking robot in a shopping disctrict, Gaki no Tsukai’s member curiosity keeps growing. Surprise is that the staff actually brought Pepper, the intelligent robot they’re reading about, to the stage!
What will happen when Pepper tries to have a conversation with the legendary super-sadist Hamada?
Definetely worth the manzai!
I’m sorry the clip is so short, it’s getting difficult for me to keep the pace.
But I promise I won’t stop subbing, even if it comes to be a once-in-a-while thing.
So, just in case, be sure to be subscribed, because new stuff can pop out when you less expect it to!
Oh yeah, take a look at their Obaachan t-shirts. I fucking love them. I should probably order a dozen of those.
And please, don’t ask me why they’re wearing animal costumes. I haven’t watched the full episode, so I have no idea what the context was.

Cocorico Presents: Chilly-Chilly Lameness Contest (Gaki no Tsukai)

Translator’s Notes

Are you feeling the hotness of summer?
If so, than this clip will be perfect to cool yourself down a bit!
You know, lame jokes can help you feel refreshed…
That’s a clip from 1999 (I guess), so it’s pretty old, but I liked how we get to see lots of Gaki staff in it.
I personally loved how they totally screwed up the score system, and even though lame skits are supposed to be rated high, sometime you’ll see skits they said were lame scoring up to 8 points.
Don’t know, but I found that hilarious too.
Also, there are several notes on the video, and I’m sorry to have added so many in it.
Giving that some skits are also based on puns, it was necessary to change the subtitles in order to preserve the jokes. Expecially the last one, when the Sabu-sabu king mispronounce his line, I totally arranged it anew. He was spouting nonsense, anyway, the funny thing was just that he wasn’t able to say what he wanted to say.
I’m also sorry, near the end, there’s a short line that I wasn’t able to understand at all.
Yeah, overall I’m not so very satisfied on this clip, due its difficulty, its fast lines and its number of puns… but anyway I wanted to release a new clip ASAP, giving that I’m working on this since June and no clips were uploaded since.
So, I’m sorry for the few mistakes and the bad work with the notes / pun arranges, but I hope you’ll enjoy it anyway!

Tsukitei Rap Battle vs Greengrocer (Gaki no Tsukai short clip)

Translator’s notes

Our hero… has been defeated. Once again.
A short clip from a recent footage of Gaki no Tsukai, in which our former Yamazaki (now Tsukitei Housei) challenges pedestrians in fierce rap battles.
We already know his abilities in making music, but is rap one of his strong point too?
I loved how his opponent is just an ordinary greengrocer, and still has a sharper tongue and more accurate sense of rhythm than Housei has.
Man, that was good.
Just for info, I won’t release long clips on my channel (15 minutes is my limit).
So I won’t translate the rest of it unless Team Gaki decides to work on it on their website!
BUT..! I’ll release clip more often than before, so while I’m working on bigger clips, there will be times when short clips like that will be uploaded.
..BUT! I need your help. Help my channel grow! More support from you guys, more clips, more frequently!
As someone asked me, I don’t have a facebook page in which I write video updates… but I have a twitter profile, you can follow me there if you want.
And obviously, as always, I do not own any copyright. I just subbed the clip.

(Gaki no Tsukai) – Earthquake during Downtown talk

Translator’s Notes

A new (short) video for everyone!
This time, a special clip from a recent footage.
The time where an earthquake strike during downtown talk.
Though I’d loved to hear something new about superman’s S symbol, I also loved how they reacted to it.
They kept their cool, keeping on entertaining the audience and bringing laughter to everyone.
I guess that’s what makes someone a comedian!
There were some parts that I didn’t get very well, but this time my doubts are just a few. For example, the first thing they both said.
I know they’re talking about reading letters, but I couldn’t get exactly what they were saying. Just forgive this little part, everything else should be perfectly fine (I guess).
But once again, pointing me out some big losses on my translation helps me out a lot for improving my japanese understanding skills, so don’t hesitate and let me know if I misheard something!
Last thing, I’m sorry this clip was short, but I wanted to sub it because it’s a nice thing to see, in my opinion.
I really love downtown, geez.
I also plan on releasing subbed clips more frequently from last clip on, at least 1 in a month (or even more than one).
But right now, 1 in a month is fine and enough, considering I’m soon going to start my exams sessions and I won’t have much time to spend on clips like those.
Anyway, subscribe and stay tuned, I’ll write everything on my twitter for news and I’ll upload everything there on this channel! thanks!

(Gaki no Tsukai) Hamada Volleyball Coach

I decided to start posting once again on my wordpress, though I’ll have some changes.
First of all: It will be a translation-only wordpress, like my first one was (and now I can truly say that I became better at translating).
I’ll post the last episode which I uploaded on my channel from Gaki no Tsukai, and something new is coming next…

TRANSLATOR’S NOTES

Welcome to my lousiest video ever! (Or not so much, considering youtube kept the 480p!)
Yeah, can’t help it. Its quality is low but it was the best I found. Moreover, its audio is very bad too, so bad that I couldn’t even get every single line they’re saying. Sometimes It’s very noisy and they also talk with such a small voice that there are probably several mistakes.
But yeah, I’m not dead! And this time the clip I’m uploading is even longer than usual! Isn’t this great?
Sadly, exams and studying (and troubles that keeps happening) are getting on my way a lot recently, that’s why there weren’t upload from recently. But I kinda find my own way to spare some time for my channel project, so yeah, that’s it!
I’m not going to quit subbing, and once in a while new clips will be uploaded here, so be sure to be subscribed!
About this video… Awesome.
I love how Japanese people acts so normally when they’re actually in a fake situation.
I also laughed so much at how Hamada turns out to be half demon and half angel, that was brilliant.
On a side note, I didn’t get the “mama” thing. I’m sorry. I tried to find something on Google, but nothing answered my questions. I’m guessing they’re mocking how Hamada is acting like a mentor to them, in a parental way.
And Etou… Poor Etou.
Once again, I’m sorry the quality is too low, but I couldn’t find anything better. If you know where to find this clip in a higher quality, let me know! I still have every .ass file, so adding the subs would be the easiest thing.
Now, some news: I changed my twitter account name (now goes on @0daruma), for everyone who’s following me, and I also left behind my wordpress, for now.
I’ll probably open a new blog or whatever when I have some spare time and will to do it… oh, well.
Oh, and lastly: I managed to became part of Team Gaki! Have you watched 2014 Earth Defense Force Batsu Game? I worked with them on the translation! (Yeah, I’m that “Scion” on the credits… except for the fact that they misspelled “Shion”). Also, I’m signing with my true name starting from this video (Mauro), so I won’t be just a Shion among Shions.
Am I right?
No, probably I’m just an idiot.
I hope this idiot I am at least will be able to entertain you!
