Get to Know your Fansubbers!

Posted by masamuneehs in Uncategorized

Alright, it’s time for a brand new feature here on the GotWoot? frontpage. This place has always had a slightly strange relationship with the fansubbing group known as AonE. We’re not them, and they’re not us, but somehow the two are often linked together. AonE has been bringing you free fansubs (of excellent quality, if I must throw in my two cents) for a long time now. A good portion of those coming to the frontpage come here for their releases.

So, you’d think it couldn’t hurt to get to know the people behind the free internet goodness, right?

Our first guest is the yeasty Bread-sama!

Masa
(masa) I was thinking about doing a little interview feature for the Gotwoot website. Just like five minutes or so.

 

 

(Bread-sama) Hm, k. Are you from gotwoot staff?

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Yeh, i’m the mod everyone hates =p

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) lol. Well, what kind of interview? I’m free.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Just a couple basic questions about you, what you do. It’s just for mindless fun. Like, for starters, where did the name Bread-sama come from?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Well… i was hooked into yakitate japan and started using irc, and i had no idea what nick to use… so i just typed something with bread and it came out.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) fair nuff. That’s the weird cooking show, right? Well, about how long have you been in fansubbing, and in AonE in particular?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Yes, it’s the cooking show… I started fansubbing in 2003/2004, with a couple of friends we created a Brazilian group and started to fansub… Back in April 2005 I applied in AonE, and on July I joined as a full member, and here i am.

 

 

 

Masa
(masa) Brazil? I’m a big Blanka fan, other than that, no clue what really goes down down there.

 

 

You know you wish you could do that electricity thing!

 

(Bread-sama) hehe, it’s fun, not that bad at all

 

 

 

Masa(masa) So what’s your official position? And what does that entail? And, ya know, if you could put it in terms so idiots like me who know jack about fansubbing, that’d be extra cool

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) I’m a typesetter… I’m the one who does that on/off stuff (the changing colors when people appear on screen or are talking off of it), and the one who puts the signs on its exact place, no matter if they are moving (>_>) or still

 

 

 

Masa(masa) What’s the hardest part of that? Like, maybe an example of a frame or episode that gave ya trouble…

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Hardest part is when the show is boring, and it has a lot of signs, like my test had, AMG S1 ep 10

Masa(masa) Not a big AMG fan?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) No, i hate that show.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Alright, (i don’t care for it either…) is that the show you worked on that you hated the most?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) No. The show I hate with all my soul is DDD (Daa! Daa! Daa!), and I work on it because I want it to be finished fast.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Hahaha… OK, OK, moving on to happier hunting grounds, what got you into anime in the first place?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) I really don’t remember… I watched Dragonball Z on cartoon like everyone, but I guess it was when I started using internet and a friend of mine kept telling me about animes… So I started my adventure with X (tv) and Naruto.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Wow, that’s weird. X was like the second subbed anime I ever saw (Kenshin being first)… didn’t the er, gay factor turn you off from it at all?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) I watched only up to ep 10, then I stopped… I rarely finish watching an anime

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Yeah, then you definitely missed the much implied man-loving…

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Thank god 😀

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Hey, it floats some people’s (mostly girls’) boats… But, anyway, what’s your favorite anime then?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Definitely Monster, One Piece and DBZ

 

 

 

Bread's Fave Animes

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Is Johan not the most badass villain ever? And, before you answer, remember that there’s only one answer to this question.

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) I hated Johan the whole show, his face is scary.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Favorite villain then?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Hmm… I guess it’s… Majin Boo, the fat one.

 

 

 

Villain? Or misunderstood?

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Wow, so a big DBZ fan then… Didn’t you get tired of the long powerups and infinite peanut gallery commentary?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Yes, but in the end it was always a good ep.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Hey, if big fat ones are what float yours… Anyhow, hottest anime babe ever, in your humble opinion?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) I really don’t know… nothing comes up in my mind lol.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Aw, come on! You don’t have a single one?
… Well, I suppose that’s okay… …then… hottest anime dude?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) I guess it’s Luffy, his voice is funny and he is retarded.

 

 

 

Sexiest Guy

 

Masa(masa) Alrighty then. Sure you don’t want to just throw a random anime girl out there, for the record?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Tsukino, from Yakitate.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Alright. Then, aside from anime, any hobbies or interests that you do to fill your free time?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Sure, I watch movies and read books, and I have university to suck me the entire week.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Word, you’ve got that Saw signature, so I’m guessing you’re a big horror fan?

 

 

 

Bread's 'Saw' Signature

 

(Bread-sama) Yes, i am 😀

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Dude, why? Aren’t they like all the same?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) No! They are unique, but of course some are just bullshit.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) What do you think it takes to make a good one then? Because Hollywood is clearly starving for ideas.

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) They need good actors and an end like Saw 1 had… and of course, good scripts and writers

 

 

 

Masa(masa) M. Night Shanaylan ‘twists’ and good acting? (script is a given)

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Yeah.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) What are your feelings on all the re-makes? Like, Freddy vs. Jason on Mars? Or the Rob Zombie Halloween remake?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Some of them are good, because the original is so old… I’m waiting for the Halloween remake, but Freddy vs Jason is just crap.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Haha, well, Nightmare on Elm Street made me sleep with the lights on for months when I was young, so I’m a little biased against the genre…
Anything you’d like to say to the AonE watchers or anyone who might read the interview?
“Stay in School Kids” or maybe, “No Hope in Dope” ?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Sure… You are what you cook!

 

 

 

Masa(masa) And what do you cook?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Noodle.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) You’re a noodle?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) You can say that (!)

 

 

 

Masa(masa) gross… … awesome…

 

 

 

I R NOODLE!

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Anything else?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Yes, I’m a huge fan of E.R. and The Corrs 😀

 

 

 

 

 

 

Masa(masa) For your sake, I might just leave those two out…

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) no~>_>

 

 

 

Masa(masa) nah, kidding. Clooney fan?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Nope. Alex Kingston.

 

 

 

Masa(masa) What about Scrubs and Grey’s Anatomy?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) I like Grey’s 🙂

 

 

 

Masa(masa) What animes would you tell people to watch? Particularly anything airing now.

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) Darker Than Black and Paranoia Agent

 

 

 

Masa(masa) You’re aware that some people claim that Grey’s is for women?

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) I didn’t know that… Haha, lol. But I just watch what entertains me 🙂

 

 

 

Masa(masa) Hey man, fair enough. Alright, then I think that’s a wrap. Thanks a lot for your time

 

 

 

(Bread-sama) You’re welcome.

    Nice intervew….I’m it wasn’t for these hardworking fansubers, we’d be at the mercey
    of C-Toon Network (after 11pm) with 1/10 the anime and horrible vocal only dubs!
    I like AMG myself but can appriciate all the challenges vs respective content some
    of these shows present. I wonder if Breadsama liked Robin Witch Hunter?

    It’s really depressing to see someone who doesn’t finish animes, likes DBZ (*palmface* *headshake* *disgust*) and naruto (*more disgust*) and worst of all, doesn’t like scrubs. These kind of people make me want to kill all humans, as soon as possible with as much fire as i can muster… >:)

    Hm, what about Dr.House….
    Well anyway nice to get to know your subbers…(hope it is correct gramma)
    O btw. I may over-read it but was is/whas Breads favorite Horrofilm thean?

    *secretly notes a huge minus for bread, because of not lieking AMG*

    if you interview a fansubber, atleast try to keep the topic somewhere around anime/fansubbing.. boring read.

    Monster and One Piece are definatly two of the greatest anime’s out. But no like scrubs? T.T

    mostly in response to mage:

    the idea here isn’t to talk about anime or even fansubbing that much, it’s about getting to know more about the people who bring you the fansubbed anime. I’d also hope that these interviews are something the AonE people can enjoy, since it’s already too much that they bring us high quality, consumable anime. Besides, how much can we talk about typesetting?

    and, for the record, i also don’t like Scrubs. It just doesn’t make me laugh. And I’m also not big on any medical dramas… I figure one day I’ll be under the knife, and that’s about as much of that stuff as I think I can tolerate…

    rofl, I didn’t say I don’t like Scrubs…. I just enver tried it 😛

    masa, if you’re not going to talk about anime with a fansubber, atleast attempt to keep the interview interesting.

    heh, it was a nice interview ^_^ , scrubs had a few nice parts in it but not enough to keep me hooked. the interview was nice since it didnt stay to anime talk only, afterall, it is a to get to know ur subbers. not anime talk with the subbers, which can be boring if all u ever do is talk about anime and nothing else…… GL in school….. 👿

    I liked the interview (though “Mage” and everyone else is intitled to their opinion)… What I find most humorous, is that the discudion of the interview is so focused on “Scrubs”… I mean, I thought was funny that “Bread-sama” was glad he got out of X before the gay part, but was more willing to name a “hottest male” anime character than a “hottest female”!!! DON’T YOU THINK THATS FUNNY?!?
