  • The Lovable Tramp

    The Lovable Tramp

    I haven't seen a ton of Tora-san other than the first of those, but this was instantly recognizable to me as proto Tora-san. Boorish but lovable drifter touches the lives of people set in their ways / down in the dumps with his "do what ya feel like" attitude, and maybe finds love along the way.

    Anyway, I translated this over the weekend. Can't really help you find the movie here, but I can give you a link to my subs.

    Kaitô Ruby

    An extremely cute romcom starring Hiroyuki Sanada and Kyoko Koizumi that I translated. You'll have to find the movie for yourself but my subs can be grabbed here.

    Ice Cream Man

    My favorite piece of Ice Cream Man trivia is that they recently tried to do a Kickstarter for part 2 but only managed to get 4 out of their 300k goal and half of that came from one backer who pledged 2k to pick an ice cream flavor in the movie.

    "With a good script, a good director can produce a masterpiece. With the same script, a mediocre director can produce a passable film. But with a bad script even a good director can’t possibly make a good film. For truly cinematic expression, the camera and the microphone must be able to cross both fire and water. The script must be something that has the power to do this."
