A little about me
Hello everyone! I'm SpaceCadet1017, creator of and translator for SpaceCaseSubs! You can call me Rin ^^ I've been living in Japan for quite a while now!
I started studying Japan in school because another friend got me interested in J-Rock, Visual Kei in particular. I was almost always listening to Dir en grey, GACKT, X Japan, hide, L'Arc~en~ciel, and Miyavi...  J-ROCK lead me to become interested in J-Dramas. The first series I watched was "Orange Days," and from there I was hooked. Now I've seen well over 100 different shows. It's really good practice for listening and vocabulary practice!  I just recently had the confidence to start watching TV without subtitles... and I was shocked to discover how much I understood. After that I realized it was now my time to start paying back all the kindness I received from subbers when I was still a beginner... so I decided to start subbing!

Rules for my subs
My rules are really not that strict, so I hope we can all get along!

  • Subs are for personal use only. That means no selling my stuff! It'd take a special kind of nasty person to sell someone else's work, but you'd also be an idiot to sell my stuff because I'm not a professional translator. In fact, I'm still a beginner! I've only been translating stuff about a year now... so you'd look kinda dumb by doing that.

  • My subs are mine. It takes hours and hours to translate, format, and time these things.  It's crazy! So if I see someone has ripped off my stuff and put their name on it, I'm gonna get pretty angry. I also don't want to see them uploaded anywhere without my permission. That includes things like hardsubbing videos and uploading to streaming sites and putting them on d-addicts, subscene, and other subtitle places.

  • Retranslations are allowed. I understand that not all international fans are English speakers. It's a big world out there! So I can understand wanting to spread the Japan love to more corners of it. All I ask is that you send me a message to let me know. Not so hard, right? I'm also letting you know: Retranslate at your own risk! I make mistakes. I cut out bits of dialogue to fit timings. I use weird slang that sometimes has a similar but not exactly the same meaning. So basically, it's already losing a bit from Japanese -> English. It'll lose more getting retranslated. But if that's OK with you, then I don't mind, either.

  • Comment when you can. OK, not a rule but a request. The reason I started subbing was because I was having so much fun watching variety shows, but there was no one around to talk about them with! If people share their reactions/responses to the episodes, it's really motivating for me! Yay! People are enjoying this thing! I mean, imagine spending like 20 hours on a project only to have no one say anything T-T;; You wouldn't want to do it again so soon, huh?  Motivation is key for subbers... so if you wanna keep seeing stuff, chat with me sometimes!

  • Did you read all that? Great! Now leave me a comment, send me a request, and comment down on the poll ^^

Things I love
If you like the same things, let's talk about them (^_^)v

  • COLORS!!! You might have noticed that :P  I apologize if things are sometimes eye-wateringly blinding. I try to keep it to a minimum, really!

  • ART!!! I mean, art uses lots of colors, so that's kind of a natural attraction. I doodle all the time. I play in Photoshop sometimes. I make things out of paper maché. I do bead work. I weave. I sew (but I'm awful at it!)  I love hair styling and makeup because it's wearable art!  There are always about 50 projects in the works.

  • DOGS!!! I can't ever see a puppy without feeling happy. They're just so darn cute! Especially labradors or retrievers. I'll melt into a puddle in front of them.

  • JDRAMAS!!! Like I said, I've seen a crapton, so if you want recommendations, lemme know!  And if you have any recommendations for me, I'm all ears!

  • EITO!!! I'm a fairly new Eighter, but I've devoured a lot of their stuff! :P  JaniBen, Chronicle, CanJani, magazine interviews, news clips... Actually, I came into Eito from Arashi. My friend was an Arashian so I started watching them, then I saw clips of Eito & their Senpai.... and those loud, pervtastic goofballs stole my heart. (Though I do still like Arashi.) From there, it was down the rabbit hole into obsession. In fact, I love them all so much I can't easily choose a 'forever bias.'  It seriously changes month to month. I'll get obsessed with Tacchon's razor-sharp comments, or Hina will be adorably dumb on Telephone Game then super sharp MCing, or Maru will be so bright and funny, or Yasu will do something so creative and beautiful, or Baru will be incredibly sweet to people, or Ryo will look absolutely stunning, or Yoko will turn into a tomato at something slightly embarrassing and then you just want to squish him!

  • JE IN GENERAL!!! I'm pretty into Arashi. I like TOKIO's music and Nagase Tomoya is the biggest goofball ever. KAT-TUN is interesting. NEWS are kind of adorable. I fell in love with Yamapi the first time I saw him open his eyes on the hill that first scene in Kurosagi. Nakatsu Shuichi is one of my favorite J-Drama characters ever, so Ikuta Toma will always share a special place in my heart.

Haha, I know I said I couldn't decide myself, but I'd like to know what you guys think!! (So I know who to focus on for screencaps, clips and whanot. Answer the poll.. it's for science!!)  Let me know your reasons in the comments! If there are any new Eighters, you might be able to convince them to join your team for the Giant Color War!! ......I'm kidding. There will be no war, because Eito is love. Always love. Maybe not always peaceful with those noisy doofuses, but always love!

I hope you enjoy your time here!!

We got a couple of things in common, started listening to Jpop/jrock sometime in 2005/2005, beginning with GACKT, HYDE, Dir en Grey, X Japan, hide etc... Not long after a friend recommended me to watch Summer Snow.
I also like to draw, and love dogs! <3 And like to read books.

Voted "What is KanJani8" Well I do know they're a band, I just don't have any interested in any of the Johnnys groups. A couple of years ago Tegomass was interviewed on Swedish radio.
I think this is the English translation of the interview http://www.nipponproject.com/en/article.php?id=15

My favorite changes from time to time. I absolutely adore all of them, so it's hard to pick a favorite. I guess because of the "ON" drama, I'm digging Yoko. I love how Maru always lifts the spirit of a room just by being energetic and silly. I love sweet and loving Yasu. Then there's Baru who sings with every fiber of his being. I love Ryo's acting (especially, Saving my Stupid Youth.) Hina's eyes. Okura's deep voice and sarcastic wit.

I voted Yasu. Well, even lately I'm obsessed by Shoji-senpai, I still can't choose Yokocho T^T
lol Hina got 0pt . Is there any fan of Takatsu King here ~ ?

"... Tacchon's razor-sharp comments..." Ha ha , I know what you mean... That's one of reasons why I love him so much... Reason number 1 is : DRUM!!! I really love watching him playing drum... I will watch it over and over again.
Tacchon is the one who makes me really into Kanjani8 now (though I'm still Arashian)...

I started the normal way for many people: watching anime (just a little late, though... I was already in my thirties)
I fell in love with the sound of Japanese, so started to study the language by myself and... We'll, let's just say that my life has not been the same ever since =D
I wanted to give back some of joy I've got thanks to so many selfless fansubbers and scanlators, so I joined a Scanlation group and I'm translating my first manga (into Spanish). It's very difficult, but it's sooooo much fun!!! And I'm learning a lot too.
I wish I could translate a dorama, but I still can't understand a "normal" conversation, so I'm afraid that will take a while.
Today I'll watch ON ch4 with your subs. Thanks again for doing them! よろしくね。 \(^o^)

From: [personal profile] ayesnoona
This was so hard...I voted for Yoko because right now he's my favorite but the truth is I love them all, I also tend to change Eito bias quite often🙊.

I voted for Ryo since he was my first favourite. I liked him from dramas before I was into Kanjani8. But Maru is also my favourite.

My favorite is Subaru. Ryo is a very close second tho ^.^

Oh I didn't know you were a laruku fan. My brother is a HUGE fan of them. He used to make me listen to their songs and give random fun facts. Even though he failed to turn me into a fan, I did come to like some of their songs. And I still listen to them from time to time.

I've always loved Japanese films so started from that point, then into anime, then I watched my first drama and was introduced to Gackt, which started a Jrock obsession. Through Gackt I discovered Arashi and from there a jdramaJjohnnys obsession started. I also discovered Kanjani8 through Arashi. Kanjani Chronicle is my favourite of the currently airing Johnnys variety shows. KAT-TUN however are my favourite Johnnys group. I don't really have a favourite in Kanjani, part of what I love about them is how they are together as a group and like you, I change my mind as to who I like best depending on what I've just watched!
I've also taking to subbing jdrama recently to give back to the community that has given me so much. I really respect you for subbing the variety shows though as I think they are so much harder to do!
Oh and I have my very own golden retriever :)

Hi, Rin. I'm Milo from Indonesia.

What bring me here? ON's subtitle.

I'm sooo into Arashi. Some of their song is so damn good, with very sweet and encouraging lyrics. I like their show too. It's funny. Wait, did I talk too much about Arashi? Sorry. Ikuta Toma is my favorite too. God must be happy when created him.

From all Kanjani member, I just know Tacchon and Nishikido Ryo. And I like both. But I vote Tacchon. His character in Otenki Oneesan and DoS Deka is funny and made me in love. Why did he only get 14,3 % in this vote? Why? He's adorable.

Hello, Nice to know you, I'm Ita from Indonesia.

I'm in love with them since 2009 until now... their song give me power.

Finally I got the chance to watch them on summer last year. I love Shibuyan, his eyes got a deep meaning for me, but since Ryo-chan meet eyes and greeting me at the concert, I think I fall for him too ^_^

It's nice to know that eito got fans all over the world. Viva Eighter ^_^

I like Kanjani8 genres whether it's the comical songs, or the band type of songs
and of course..i've been into JE since highschool a.k.a 2006 .

Hello, I voted for Okura Tadayoshi. Actually, I like Arashi :) but when he act with Aiba in Mikeneko Holmes no Suiri and when I saw him cook spaghetti for Ohno (I don't know which program). I think this guy is cute. Then when Kanjani8 came to VS Arashi and Arashi ni shiyagare, they are so fun <3

Hehehehe.... I voted for Okuraaaa~~ Yay yay! Gotta loooove the dude's bluntness (and deep voice!) Although, the others are still be close behind lol They just have to be funny for me to love them lol Those dorks!

I got wayyy into Kanjani8 after Puzzle came out. Things started to really turn around when they released "Life~Me no mae mukou e~" featuring themselves as a band! Still love that song till now!

Other than K8, there's KT (T.T my true, first love <3), One Ok Rock and Man With A Mission (who recently performed in Singapore! They were soooo cooollll!! XD) Have you heard of them? lol

I like your colorful journal, really - it's soo cheerful! :D
I admit that I'm not really into Eito (but I like them - I mean, it's impossible to not like them XD), I prefer Arashi more but I love watching them together in TV programs ♥ Maybe because most of them were together in Juniors and know each other very well they're so great combo xD
Personally, I started to love Japan because of anime (I was maybe 9 back then?) but I probably started to need real people - I don't think I have drama that pushed me into j-dramas world, it came naturally :3 But my very very first drama was 1 Litre of Tears - and so Nishikido was my first real-life love XD Then I got to know MatsuJun in HanaDan who was pushed from his prince's throne by Ohno XD
Orange Days! It's great drama, isn't it? :D For me it's not the best romance drama I've ever watched but I enjoyed it very much. Not only because my beloved Tsumabuki ♥.♥

Thank you for adding me to your friends! ^_^ (When I visited you journal after that I couldn't find out why there's so many entries suddenly XDDD)

I've been interested in Japan since... ever... I've grown fond of Japan since I was a kid (at least, that's what my mom told me. She said that I used to say that I want to fly to Japan someday when I was like 3 years old *in which still haven't been realised yet TT_TT* )
I love to see the culture of Japanese people in where behind all that modernity, there's still some historical preservation towards their past era (sorry, I don't really know how to explain this part)
My first JDrama is Good Luck and it is so good... One of the best I've ever watch. From then I'm hook to more dramas and movies and one of the drama that I can never forget is 1 litre of tears in which kinda ironic because I didn't know that Ryo is starring in it till I found out about Kanjani8.
I'm a huge fan of Arashi, in love with Scandal, get drifted away by Kalafina and now, falling for Kanjani8.
I stumble upon your LJ while looking for Debikuro movie and found that you also sub the Chronicles (which is the best since I always end up watching it raw and I really love that show and always wonder what they are talking about) and now, ON is my newest addiction

Oh yeah, I haven't introduced myself. Miera from Malaysia. Falling for Eito especially to Ohkura Tadayoshi (his deep voice and drumming are just... kyaaa!!!) and Yasuda Shota (his high pitched voice is so... kawaii!!! )
