About

Hi! I’m just an ordinary girl in my 20s who likes Japanese dramas very much. 🙂

Timezone: GMT +8

I started subbing in 2016 so I’m still a newbie in the world of translation and subbing. Although I passed my JLPT N1 back in 2014, there are many words that I still don’t know. Heck, I’m just good at passing exams but when it comes to real-life application, I still have a long way to go.

I’m definitely learning something new every time I translate each episode, which makes the whole process very exciting and educational at the same time. Yes, I occasionally write a long list of episodic notes. Sorry for being so long-winded but the Japanese language is simply interesting and I actually wrote those so that I can refer to them in the future.

Having said all that, please feel free to tell me if I made any translation errors or if there are better ways to word my translations! That will be very helpful. 🙂

Notes on my subtitles:

– My subtitles will be uploaded to D-Addicts when they are ready. Please look forward to them.

– I use British spelling.

– Other than names, food and places, I try not to leave romaji in my subtitles and will find a similar English equivalent. My objective is to make my subtitles readable even for people who know next to nothing about Japanese culture.

  1. I’ve recently seen some of your works and I’d like to you to do us a favor.
    It would be a pleasure if you can subtitle Higanbana episodes 9 and 10 (can’t find theme anyway) and the first episode of kamo kioto e iku full lenght (00:53:00, all I’ve founb are timed with no ad in it)

    • Hi, thanks for dropping by. Unfortunately, I’m busy with subbing a drama at the moment so I doubt I can help you out. Perhaps you can ask another subber instead.
      May you have a good week ahead. 🙂

  2. Hello Carameltz! Thank you for your work in Hello Harinezumi. I’m really sorry for being upfront about this but do you accept subtitling requests? I really hope you can sub the movies 64 I & II. Raws have been out since 9 months ago and nobody seems to be picking it up for subbing or uploading eng subs from BDs. Once again, thank you and sorry if this post been a bother to you. 🙂

    • Hi, Lily! I don’t accept subtitling requests for movies as movies do not come with Japanese softsubs unlike dramas. Without Japanese softsubs, subtitling will take a much longer time as timing will have to be done line by line which is a very tedious process. I hope you can find someone else who can help! Thanks for dropping by. 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for posting your retimed Japanese subs for Warotenka.

    I am a big fan of Asadoras as well as Taiga Dramas. I do not read Japanese and have a hearing vocabulary of a 3 year-old Japanese child, so I will use your subs to create machine translations online. Those are good enough for me to follow about 80% of the story line.

    I don’t know what your native language is but you write well in English.

    • I’m glad to know that my retimed Japanese subs for Warotenka are useful.
      By the way, English is my first language while Japanese is my third. 🙂

    • Hi, gab!
      I’m still considering if I should pick up a new drama this season. There are a few which I’m interested in but I’m not sure if I will sub a full-length series as I’ve been busy recently. Thanks for your suggestion though. 🙂
