JDRAMA HELP

Postby Kisshu » Wed 03.21.2007 8:43 pm

I am "most likely" going to buy Hana Yori Dango season one drama. I am wondering, however, how badly they subtitled it. Does anyone know how much swearing is involved in the non-"fan"subbed version? I really hate it when they kill it with swearing. I would really like to know before I buy it!

Hana yori dango isn't Jdrama, it's Anime. You're in the wrong forum.

Actually I think it's both. It's been turned into so many things over the years...
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

then why did you say you were buying the season 1 anime and how badly it (the anime) was subtitled? You might want to edit your OP then to make it more clear.

Official Japanese J-drama DVD releases are usually Region 2, expensive, and have no foreign-language subtitles whatsoever. This is probably the same for the HYD J-drama too. DVDs of J-dramas with English subtitles that are sold on EBay and other such places are most often either
A) bootlegs or
B) the fansubs on a DVD-R. Fansubbers are very angry when people sell their fansubs, and so they do not condone purchasing these sorts of "DVDs".

There aren't any official Region 1 releases of any J-dramas, unfortunately, unlike with anime, J-movies or K-dramas...so doinkies would probably not consider buying those DVDs...
