A couple of cuties, and some wild animals about to eat them D:  Download here.

EDIT: okay one of those fonts I used might not exist by default in Windows, if stuff doesn’t work let me know pls MORE EDIT: actually, at least half of the fonts I used aren’t packed in with it. I need to stop pretending I know what I’m doing at 5am

Tried even more new things this time, including EXCITING NEW FONTS for the intro/outro and screamery. I also gave up on shifting moving text by hand and used that mocha thing that all the normal people use to track stuff. Took a while to figure out what buttons I was supposed to push, but I managed to make that two seconds of scrolling cellphone look okayish. I think I should have rotated its text in 3D or whatever instead of just shearing, but I already spent long enough dicking around with everything else. And I guess the intro and outro stuff should be animated too, shouldn’t they… Maybe if we put up another batch next year >_>

I hope an animal never makes that noise at me, ever.

Her grandmother reminds me of the Puni elder from TTYD. Okay nyaa’s alive again, download here.

So, I just spent several minutes spacing out because I forgot how to make new posts on wordpress, and ended up watching a video where a guy found a cockroach in his bathroom… Not really sure how that happened.

Oh, and I don’t think my approach to the Ow screens was particularly good, but there didn’t seem to be a good way to mask something like that without just leaving it and adding the sub somewhere to the side/bottom. AND THAT’S JUST PLAIN UNACCEPTABLE.

I’m not a fan of four-syllable Japanese words that equate to five or six words in English.

Nothing like a horny man butting in on your conversation. Download here.

I feel like my pun game has been slipping ever since Horse left :(. Dad jokes especially should be right up my alley, but I had some trouble coming up with something for this episode.

Aggressive Retsuko 71 + other stuff

retsu71 post face

Pretend I wrote something amusing here. Download.

This was a weird episode. The mouth movements in this show aren’t exactly known for their accuracy, but they seemed even weirder than normal this time. Doug’s voice also sounded bizarrely filtered, and everyone made strange faces/what was with Doug’s shirt?

Oh well. I tried doing some slightly fancier things with the subs this time, and I think it worked out well aside from one minor part. Doing gradients and stuff with aegisub apparently takes a million lines of BASIC and I don’t have time for that, so it’ll just have to look a little weird.

Now for the “other stuff”. A few more characters have appeared and been added to our character bios subsection, so I’ll go ahead and explain their meanings behind their names as well. You can check this post here for the others.

Carrie – カラ姐(karane?) I’m actually not sure how the kanji is meant to be read, since they’ve never said her name in the show, but the カラ(kara) part comes from カラカル(karakaru), for caracal. 姐 usually means ‘older sister’, and I guess is some vague reference to her personality?
Yokosawa – Voiced by the actual comedian, Yokosawa Natsuko, who seems to be affiliated with the King’s Brunch thing that Retsuko is part of. Her comedy involves mimicking various personality archetypes, which isn’t really my thing but whatevs.
Armadonna – 真城さん(majiro-san), as in, アルマジロ(arumajiro), for ‘armadillo’. The 城(castle) part of her name might be a reference to her dillousness or something. I’ll let you decide whether the name we chose is based on Madonna, or just Donna.
Doug – 穴井くん(anai-kun). As I mentioned in whatever post his debut was in, 穴熊(anaguma) are badgers(穴 means hole, I’m sure you’ve seen it before if you’ve ever read any doujins).
Lucille – 胡麻川さん(gomakawa-san). From 胡麻斑海豹/ゴマフアザラシ(gomafu azarashi), the spotted seal. She doesn’t have legs and that kind of weirds me out… I’m especially proud of this one.

Speaking of doujins, I’ve translated one! I’m not going to link it here but you should be able to find it on naughtynyaa/sadpanda/maybeotherplaces under the name “(SC62) [antyuumosaku (malcorond)] The Iona Rag (Arpeggio of Blue Steel) [English] [Seiuchi]”. Horse helped edit some of the dialogue. If I do any other things like this they’ll be under the [Seiuchi] tag as well(TL note: seiuchi means walrus). Feel free to leave any feedback about it here.

This is why I’m not a teacher. Download here.

Nothing interesting to say about this episode, aside from the fact that I found something like an onomatopoeia dictionary, which is p-cool. I might have some extra stuff to post in the next couple of days, assuming I get it done before Sanic happens.

Aggressive Retsuko 69

licked by looking nervously

Everyone’s favorite number! Here you go.

This week’s screencap is brought to you by google translate. If you ever want to learn Japanese, stay the fuck away from that.

I’d also like to extend my wish for searchable resources to fashion terminology. The kind that only shows up in weirdo magazines from years ago and in blogs written by internet weirdos who bought those magazines so they could write about how weird everyone is for dressing like even weirder weirdos. I’m glad I’m not a trendy urban youth, because I’d never remember all of these words.

Sorry if any of the lines are too long, I’m bad at timing things and condensing information conveyed in five syllables down to sub-threeword phrases.

Aggressive Retsuko 64-68

retsuface for 64-68

Finally! Here they are: 64, 65, 66, 67, 68.

I really wish someone would make a thesaurus for slang words and euphemisms. Asking random people on the internet for suggestions just doesn’t work.

You can probably expect future episodes to be out the weekend they go up on youtube, provided I don’t drive off a cliff or into the ocean somehow.

Oh yeah, and the bios are updated with two more characters(at the bottom).

Aggressive Retsuko 60-63

retsuface for 60-63

Here they are: 60, 61, 62, 63.

So, for various reasons, Horse will no longer be working on the Retsuko subs…or any subs, I guess. I’ll still be putting them up under the [Horse] tag, but they won’t have that fresh horsey scent to them anymore :(. I’ll try to have the other 3/4 up some time this weekend.

The last line of the song in…I think 62? might have been a reference to this silly commercial.

Aggressive Retsuko 1-55 batch

Hi. Here’s that batch I promised weeks ago. Lots of script fixes, some format and timing fixes as well. I fixed episode 27 too since people were very upset about that. The batch is only episodes 1-55, but it covers the episodes that I wasn’t around for if that bothered you, and conveniently that means it covers the episodes that were magnet-only due to the Nyaa situation. Enjoy the convenience of not having to download 50 individual episodes~.
