Fell for it…

Danny@novastorm.animeblogger.net: Ok, I got your answer about that early fansub. It’s a load of bull. Don’t waste your time.

Oh, and yesterday night, I was at Raffles Hotel, watching a play which starred Singapore’s most famous trap comedian. (I didn’t go on purpose for that. A friend had extra subsidised tickets.) Sad to say, it did not exactly give me any ideas for a impz 4koma, but my thinking is that, if I think hard enough, I’ll come up with one…

Anyone else here who was shocked to see a very early release of Code Geass episode 15 on Tokyo Toshokan a few days ago? I certainly was. And I went ahead to download it. Here’s a little more on that file…
Heads up, the supposed early fansub release is done by a group called Under9000. I would expect most people to know what the 9000 refers to. Anyway, I’ll explain that particular meme later on. Also, in the comments bar, they wrote that they were testing a new compression format. All good and well so far.

So I went ahead and downloaded it. I know I’m not the only one, because I was connected to maybe a few hundred other peers and seeds.

Anyway, I tried watch it today. My first impression was that it had not actually been subbed at all. No subs, seemed like a raw. Ok, but since I downloaded it, I might as well watch on despite not understanding the dialouge.

Going on, I passed the OP sequence and lo and behold, what a surprise! It wasn’t the rest of episode which played before my eyes, but the actual OVER 9000 video. I lol-ed at that. Wow, plenty of people have been taken for suckers. Me included, but well, I’m not insulted.

Well, in case you’re still clueless about the 9000 meme, it’s supposedly referring to a guy who bid over $9000 for a PS3. Shocking eh? Someone came along later with a video taken from Dragonball where Vegeta scans Goku’s power level and says the power level is OVER 9000! The video can be found on youtube. In fact, there’s more than one. Here’s one of them.

I guess this means that now I’ve got to wait for gg’s fansub of Code Geass just like everyone else… Oh, and Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpuchou is pretty good, I think…

  1. ah i see, I’m glad I didn’t download that… ^^’

  2. Now I feel like I’ve done a good deed for the greater good…

  3. hahah… I also fell for their Deathnote 14 subs. After watching the op theme, whenever they talk, word “Penis” appears as its subtitle. Bah! some joke… It was because I thought their subs were fine cuz there’s nothing wrong with their deathnote 13 subs. Live-Evil haven’t been subbing lately…

  4. Ah, thanks for the explanation on the over9000 meme thing. ^^
