Happy New Year! (Though a little bit late)
With kouin (and the leave of the month of execution*) it’s time for a little update.
First: Tetsuwan Birdy Decode The Cipher – Finally released, on the fact that we spent 4 months on it……
Second: Sora no Woto – Everything went quite well as you can see.
Third: Other active Projects – ……
Fourth: Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan – just picked. All of the staff (besides staffs from Chinese section) in Sora Project will be transferred to here. If you think we did a good job in Sora, it will be the same with Hakuouki . We will not release Chinese translation as our partner – DA will release with their own “resources”.
Fifth: As usual, when we pick a new project, we always recruit (and kick out the lazy staff )
- Translator (Japanese to English. We also welcome Chinese to English “translator”, but you will probably only QC)
- AFXer – make OP/ED (and other) after effects
- Editor - Checks the English. (Don’t think that we won’t test you because you are a native English speaker! I came across a lot of *native speakers* from erm… (NBA…super bowl…) who can’t write decent English.)
- Encoder – By whatever means. I don’t care. Just get me a video that can be released.
Sixth: The spring has come
I expect a good year in kouin. Thanks for all you do and may we all grow and prosper in the year of tiger.
*Some one asked what is “the month of execution”, and here is the quote from http://www.slate.com/id/2159747
“…The new months each had 28 days. But that didn’t sit well with Numa because even numbers were considered bad luck at the time. So, he added a day on to January, giving the year an odd-numbered 355 days. No one knows why February was left with 28 and remained an unlucky month. It may be related to the fact that Romans honored the dead and performed rites of purification in February. (The word februare means “to purify” in the dialect of the ancient Sabine tribe.)…”
