I found some Japanese subtitles for part of the Gaia Gear audio drama, so I did a rough translation for fun and uploaded it to Youtube for you guys and other weebs.
Opening Narration + OP:
It's pretty cool actually, like watching a Gundam episode with the screen off. It seems to be pretty different from some summaries of the novels I've read though.
By the way, my Japanese is terrible, so if you see anything horrendously bad in there, just mention it. Hopefully Gaia Gear can get the attention of a real translator who isn't looking up every second word in a dictionary.
A Japanese guy kindly uploaded all of Gaia Gear here:
He was also nice enough give the first 3 episodes Japanese subtitles, and what I'm doing is ripping the video and the subtitles, translating the subtitles into English.This is pretty easy because I don't need to use my ears and the subtitles are already timed right, but without them I'm pretty stuck. So I can do the first three episodes, but you'll have to hope that some real translator takes interest after that.
Kind effort anon, but it looks like Zeonic released it last year...
He had the other episodes from disc 1 one but i guess he took them down...
Shit, he's even got part of the G-Saviour radio drama up... man I really want a translation of that!
Wow, I didn't even know. It's kind of weird reading the same thing translated by someone else. If they did do any translation of the other episodes, I wonder if they'd let me use them for the subtitles.
>I got the Gaia Gear soundtrack somewhere off the net. It is goddamn amazing. It's a shame only like three tracks are up on youtube.
Alright, well, upload it to Mediafire or something, please! I'd love to hear it.
"The souls of the dead
wander the stillness of the universe,
become light, and
melt into the milky way."
That's rather beautiful.
Episode 2 is up:
I'm pretty tired at the moment so there might be a few mistakes I didn't notice. I'm not as satisfied with this translation as I was with the last episode. Episode 3 might take a bit longer, I'm going to be a bit busier from now on.
Does anyone know Zeonic's email? I couldn't find one on their site. It'd be great if he's translated any of the parts I don't have Japanese subs for.
