NOTE: I had few issues while encoding this episode (about its size), so the vimeo video is 544p (‘cause I have a 500mb limit per episode and my 720p file was higher than that). It’s still 720p on MEGA, and I’ll publish my softsubs on this page next week, so you can just watch it on whatever HD raw you like).
It was many years ago, I really don’t remember precisely how many.
I had already watched the Jimmy Onishi skit on No Laughing Highschool where he speaks English on youtube countless times, even years before that day, but I didn’t know anything about Gaki no Tsukai.
Then, one day I watch that skit again and got curious. “Who are these guys? Why are they getting smacked?” and found out it was from a japanese tv show called “Gaki no Tsukai”. I googled it and came across one episode of Silent Library.
That was the first time I saw a full Gaki no Tsukai episode, and I loved it so much I never actually stopped watching it after all these years. I’ve rewatched several episode countless times (I just re-watched Matsumoto Haunted Hotel again, recently), and I could keep on do it again and again.
Silent Library is the series which introduced me to this show I love so much, so as soon as I saw the chance to translate one episode of it myself, I poured my soul into it and managed to finish translating / typesetting it in less than 12 hours (started yesterday around 16:00 P.M. and finished it around midnight).
I’m already working on another episode, but that can wait. Silent Library just couldn’t! Hope you’ll enjoy this episode, let me leave few notes for you:
– You may already know who HIKAKIN is, he’s a Japanese youtuber who became famous for beatboxing, but right now he’s more like… a Japanese Pewdiepie I guess. I personally remember him for this.
– At one point, Hamada refers to a previous episode of Silent Library, this scene to be more precise.
– For the last punishment, they make a pun between the Japanese loan word “konbea” (conveyor belt) and “chinko” (penis), resulting in “chinkonbea”. I translated it as “cockveyor belt”… you do the math.
With that being said, usual reminder about how you can like my FB page to help it grow / show support (it’s more important then you think!) or donate few dollars on my ko-fi page to support my translations / show appreciation.
That’s all for today, hope you’ll enjoy this episode! See you next video (like my page for updates!)
