Does anyone watch Japanese TV, or anime fansubs?

Postby BetterSense » Tue 11.21.2006 12:43 pm

I have two different anime fansubs, and before the show starts there is an anouncement, something like 'this program brought to you by...'. Both of them are the same. So either it's a very common announcement, or the shows happened to be on the same channel or something. The problem is I can't really understand it well enought to transcribe it, but I want to know what they are saying. The best I can do is that it starts with

このばんぐみは、and ends with します

That would be my first guess.

I don't know all the kanji, but phonetically that would appear to be it exactly. Thank you.

I noticed that a lot of* anime starts with a warning telling you to watch it in a well-lit room to reduce the risk of having an epilectic seizure.

*I say "a lot of" because I happened to see one episode from two or three different shows that had the same message. Since I remember hearing about pokemon-induce seizures a few years ago, I assume all anime in Japan carries the warning by law.

Gankutuoo and Monster.

I suppose given their unconventionalism and seinen flavor it wouldn't be too surprising if they were on the same channel.

they used to mention the seizures warning before most cartoons a few years back in the US. I don't think they do it much anymore..

but watch spongebob sqauarepants and if you don't have a seizure, your funny bone is broken..

This one does too, but I coudn't think of a reason for it to say that, so I assumed I must be wrong! It says

テレビを見えるときは、部屋を明るして「?」れて見て下さい.

It's so exciting to be able to read a little bit, and simultaneously infuriating that I don't know many characters. I thought it was something about 'make your room bright when you watch it' but I was really confused as to why it would say that.

That's exactly what it says :D Brighten the room so you don't get seizures from the flashing.

I've seen that on almost every recent anime series I've ever watched (which is roughly around 14) and I thought it was required too, but then I noticed that not all series have it. Who would've thunk pokemon started it all?
