My subtitle track for Promare. Subs are in .ass format.
#### Movie not included (clearly), I don't think I have the upload speed to be seeding a whole film, but you're free to use these or edit them as long as I'm credited for them.
#### Like the PDO subs, mine use the GKIDS translation as a base, but I've gone through the whole film and retranslated line by line, replacing/editing stuff that either didn't line up with the Japanese or I just didn't like. They're based on the theatrical subs.
- Removes some instances of the translator inserting their own dialogue where it wasn't present in the Japanese (i.e. the "balls to the wall" thing)
- Adds back in (mostly minor) instances of dialogue missing from the GKIDS translation
- Most significantly: Rephrases large chunks of the movie, both for the sake of nuance and clarity closer to the Japanese, and for style (It's hard to give a singular example when there's so many changes but the technobabble especially felt really lacking in the first half of the film...) This also includes reintroducing parallels in dialogue that I think the original English sub obscured a little.
None of the fonts from PDOs release are included, sorry if you're really attached to having fancy subtitles but I personally don't care to add them in. You can edit them in if you'd like of course. No karaoke like in CarpenterRabbit's version either. I also decided not to include honorifics as they're used very infrequently and it felt arbitrary to use them.
The changes are more significant in the first half than the second. I only really kept in lines from the GKIDS subs I found accurate or liked, which is probably less than half of the movie (although a lot of it was just rephrased, granted most significant lines have been altered in some way to better reflect the Japanese)...If you don't like the those subtitles or PDO's, these are hopefully different enough to be worth a try.
It took around 20 hours to finish these so I'd really appreciate it if people checked them out :)
Please let me know if there are any errors at all. Thank you! (And sorry if there's anything wrong with the torrent, I've never made one before. also PLEASE SEED! My internet speed is hot garbage)
