Suzumiya Haruhi-chan is back!

24 01 2009

The day before Valentine’s Day, Haruhi-chan finally returns – to YouTube! About 22:00 JST (that’s 10 PM in Japanese Standard Time) the channel KADOKAWAanime at YouTube on the 13th February will release the first episode of the new The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya parody online anime, Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu (simply add “-chan” to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and you get The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya-chan, or Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu instead of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu… wow, that was long). If you’ve been waiting for more Haruhi Suzumiya, this Valentine will be the best in years! Maybe…

Japanese YouTube with subtitles? Kadokawa tests new kadoTV

14 01 2009

Kadokawa launches their new kadoTV service in a test stage where they will stream content previously uploaded to their channel at YouTube with subtitles underneath in several languages – even Japanese. Great for those studying both kana, kanji and the language altogether, am I right? Users of the kadoTV service will be able to download and edit subtitles for free; however, I’m not sure if you will be able to upload the altered or completely new subtitles to the site or if you’re legally even allowed to use it for anything after downloading it. The test stage, or maybe “trial version” would fit better, will be available to the public until the end of February. You can also change the language of menus and not much else by clicking “English” accompanied by the american flag to the right of the kadoTV logo at the top of the page, I see now.
