Thank you!

Oooh, eagerly awaited, and thank you so much!

(I've gotten my mother hooked on this show, which is pretty amazing considering that she doesn't really like animated films, and that English is her second language, so she usually avoids anything subtitled because she's a slow reader. Thank goodness for the Pause button!)

Re: Thank you!

^^; Ep 18 IIRC was a bit nasty on the speed-reading front. They spoke really quickly here. Hope y'all enjoy it! ^_^

Re: Thank you!

Great episode! I just finished watching it--loved the end of this story arc.

Lessons we learned:

1. Don't piss off Uncle Reishin.
2. Don't piss off Senior Secretary Kou
3. Don't piss off Kouchou

I *so* enjoyed watching Kou Reishin take down his enemies. He's a real bastard--actually, all of the men in that family are pretty scary, including [usually]mild-mannered Dad the Librarian's alter-ego.

Thank you again for undertaking this fansubbing project, Kage-chan, and sharing this wonderful series with us! I'll be showing Mom eps 17 & 18 tomorrow night, and I expect I'll be using the Pause button a lot on 18.

I'm with you on that one, LOL! I enjoyed watching Reishin take that guy down too! And I so agree - all the men in that family are scary! Remember that episode where Shouka, Shuurei, Seiran, and Eigetsu were sitting in a diner and the people next to them said something nasty? I laughed so much when Shouka sliced their table apart with those wire things, all the while looking like nothing was happening!

Re: Thank you!

Definitely good stuff.

And speaking of scary Uncle Reishin, anyone else feel that the Emperor's romantic plans are in definitely jeopardy now that Reishin has decided that his adopted son Kouyuu should marry Shuurei? (I adore Kouyuu, and I think he'd make a good match for Shuurei, too. He's as smart as she is, kind, would probably need less emotional caretaking than Ryuuki, and he already likes her quite a bit despite his declared distaste for the female sex.)

Re: Thank you!

Actually, it's Kurou who wants Kouyuu and Shuurei to marry. Reishin...... *blink* it's hard to say how Reishin would react. As much as Reishin cares about Kouyuu, he doesn't make things easy for him and is quite caustic. ^^;; Poor Kouyuu's life would be quite difficult if he were to marry Shuurei; not only because of Reishin, but also because of Seiran. ^^;;

Re: Thank you!

Oops, you're right. I rewatched 17 & 18 yesterday, and it was indeed Kurou who mentioned wanting to matchmake between his adopted nephew Kouyuu and his niece Shuurei.

Even though the Emperor seems to have very little actual power in the face of the influence & power wielded by the noble clans, I can't imagine that either Reishin or Kurou would pick a match with the Assistant Secretary of Civil Affairs over a match with the Emperor of Saiunkoku.

(Though Kouyuu does cook...that's always a plus in a husband!)

Enjoy your trip to Japan, Kage-chan!

Re: Thank you!

ROFL, I wouldn't be surprised if Shuurei ends up having like, 10 suitors or something (it wouldn't be a shoujo (well, this one's more josei, but anyway) anime if the heroine wasn't being fought over by many guys...). Poor Ryuuki, ne? His competition is gradually increasing, LOL.

But Kouyuu/Shuurei ... while that is a possibility (especially since the family members like Kurou and Reishin are so insistent on it), it still feels like they're more platonic towards each other ... I mean, right now I can't see Kouyuu with any girl, but perhaps that may change in the future...

Hey everyone seems to have no problem downloading episode 18. Actually I haven't managed to download episode 3 for the last few days either. I thought it was the same problem for everyone, but I realise that I was wrong. I keep getting the following message when I try to download the torrent for both episodes. Will someone please help me or tell me what I should do? Thanks!!

Forbidden

I have to admit being a bit unsure why you're getting an error message like that. What BT client are you using? The main thoughts that come to mind are really basic things, but without knowing exactly what you're doing it's hard to say exactly what is happening. The error itself sounds like you're trying to access the file "download.php" which shouldn't be happening. Personally, I have my BT client automatically pull the file but it is possible to pull the .torrent file and have it saved to disk first and then open it in your BT client.

Do you have any problems pulling torrents from other bt servers BTW? The only other thoughts that come to mind are either your BT client setup is out, or remotely possible would be an IP issue with their server. But again, the likelihood... :/

Does anyone else have any ideas?

(In the meantime, I'd try nabbing from Sendspace or Megaupload, but that's me). ^^;

I've got the same problem with episode 18. There wasn't a problem with 17 last time but just now the same page came up when I tried clicking on the torrent again. Weird, I don't have a problem with other servers like scarywater...(currently)...

Hi again. Thanks for your reply. I am using Azureus and everything is working ok with all other trackers. It seems the problem is only with shadow dreams' tracker. Btw I am also having problems connecting the torrent to the tracker from my BT client (tracker status says "Scrape Error...HTTP response code: 403...").

Anyway, since I couldn't download the torrent files from shadow dreams' tracker, I have been getting them from mininova instead. The torrent for ep 18 worked fine but the recent torrent for ep 19 is not working for me because the decentralised tracking (DHT) is switched off for this torrent. I dl via DHT as I can't connect to shadow dreams' tracker :( Can someone please create a new torrent for ep 19 with DHT switched on and seed using the new torrent? Btw all the previous torrents (e.g. ep 18) have DHT switched on.

Thanks and sorry for the trouble. Btw I had problems replying on your blog for the past 2 weeks so I haven’t been able to reply.

Btw you mentioned Sendspace or Megaupload. Is it already available and is there a link to these?

same thing here - forbidden

"you don't have permission to access /download.php on this server.
etc.

I've been having the same problem too.
I'm using BitTornado as client. No problems at other sites like AF-F, AniKraze etc :-( Seems like i can't access the folder download.php.

Yuki - gomen

It looks like I got a bad copy when I dl'ed from sendspace yesterday, so I can't go straight to seeding. :( I'll have to join the torrent the "normal" way, but I'll seed extra when I'm done.

Question

I notice that the word "shinshi" is used quite frequently throughout this episode and in a couple of the previous ones and I'm wondering does that word have a particular meaning?

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: October 3rd, 2006 03:34 pm (UTC)
Re: Question

"Shinshi" IIRC, was defined in ep 14 (maybe 15?). It's a special term used to refer to someone who's passed the Exams but hasn't been sworn-in as an official yet. Normally, the period of being a shinshi is quite short, but Shuurei's year was an exception.

Yay! Thanks for another great episode!

BTW, perhaps it would be wise to replace the line "This is an amatuer fansub and is not to be sold anywhere." with "This is a fansub and is not to be sold anywhere."

You're pretty much beyond the amatuer level. :P

Thank you for subbing this series I lost faith in the other subber because of their mistakes on certain translations ^^; Will there be any plans to sub 4-7 in the near future? :)

Re: :)

A very late reply, but yes, we are planning on releasing eps 5-7 (ep 4 having been released while I was on vacation). Ep 5 has just gone into edit so we're getting to them slowly. ^_^
