Since I have so little motivation for everything right now (even to just think about anything), it took me a while to realize that I’m having motivation problem right now.  It probably started around the time I returned from the trip to Hiroshima.  Hey, that’s when I stopped updating this blog!

So, I’m going to stay relatively inactive for a while.  Fansubbing activities overall won’t stop.  But I have no idea what I’ll be doing tomorrow.  I’ll be doing whatever I feel like doing…  (If you ask about any status of any show, your inquiries will be ignored.  Probably deleted too.)

Here is one side effect of my lack of motivation – Hajime no Ippo New Challenger episode 25.

This episode should be released within a day or two.  If you’ve been watching the show, watch this one too, then tell me…  how would you have done things differently?  When I translated a day or two after I returned home, I just felt like only doing the job, and did not feel like doing any creative work.  This episode is full of puns.  And when I face such episodes, I can either take it as a great challenge, and do my best to keep the sense of humor, or just bulldoze through it and never think back.  This time, I did the latter.

I have no idea how the editing team handled the script – I have not watched this release candidate I have on my disk.  But I want to see if there’s anyone with some motivation and creativity to shed some new light on how this episode could be translated/handled.
