Movie Transcripts

Postby torgosaves » Tue 10.25.2005 5:07 pm

Hello. I've been searching and searching on yahoo Japan for a while now, and I just can't find a site that has the Japanese script for movies, or Cowboy Bebop. Although, for Cowboy Bebop, I did find one site that had a transcript for only the 1st episode and a few others, but I need all of them. You see, my listening skills aren't up to par, and I would like to be able to follow along with a movie or show with the words right in front of me. I've tried looking, but I don't know words to type in to find this. I've tried トランスクリプション、台詞、音訳 and words to that effect, but I just haven't had any luck. Thankyou.

well... i can't help you with movies or anime or anything like that, but you can find partial transcripts of japanese dramas at dramanote.seesaa.net, and you can find a fairly modest database of song lyrics at uta-net.com and utamap.com. but if you buy or rent japanese dvds, they'll naturally have japanese subtitles.

You can also do a search on Google or Yahoo or whatever. The Japanese terms you'd need are either シナリオ or セルフ -- both are used for "script." (The former is more likely to get what you want, though).

Just plug in a "senario" and the title of what you want. I just found Mononoke-hime, for example, at http://user.chollian.net/~akizuki/siryo%5E/mononoke.txt and Tonari no Totoro at http://user.chollian.net/~akizuki/siryo%5E/totoro.htm .

I've tried these keywords and so far they haven't gotten me anywhere. I'll list what I'm looking for if anyone wants to help.
Cowboy Bebop (all episodes)

If you think that I'm just being lazy, I'm not. I've been diligently searching for the past month. I'm just not skilled in reading Japanese to navigate around Japanese websites. I just don't know what I'm doing. Thankyou.

I would suggest searching for a specific line, also. For example, if you know a line from one of the Cowboy Bebop episodes you are searching for, try typing that in. (Along with a few other key words; maybe Spike, the title of the show, etc...)
