Ouroboros Episode 3

I finally finished episode 3! Yay!

It was easier than episode 2 and had about 100 fewer lines than episode 2, but it took me longer this week because I was preparing for my JET Program interview.

I can't really talk about it because I had to sign a nondisclosure agreement, but I will say that I think my interview went okay. I felt dumb in a lot of my answers, but others said they felt that way. I'm glad it's over now, and I can concentrate on work and subbing Ouroboros.

So. Episode 3. I'll let you guys watch it first, but can I just flail for a second about the "couple" scene between Ryuuzaki and Hibino? IT WAS SO CUTE AND AWKWARD~ It's like, you know he kind of likes her, and she could totally like him (cause he's a good guy, no matter what) but it's just super awkward because they're partners. They're chief TOTALLY ships them, too. It's so great. I'd love for someone to draw a comic of them and have their chief spreading flowers around them or something and Hibino's just like "getting real tired of your shit, Chief" and Ryuuzaki's blushing like, "oh, come on, chief, this is embarrassing" but he really loves it...


I still need to write translation notes for episodes 2 and 3, especially since I had to make some translation choices that probably should be explained. Like in episode 3, I left in the word "Ronin." Well, if you didn't know better, you'd think I was talking about the masterless samurai from the Edo period and not a high school graduate who failed to get into a university. And you'd be really confused.

I'm loving getting to see Toma every week, too. He has become such a great actor, too. I mean, he always was a great actor, but for awhile, it felt like he got stuck in an acting rut. Like he was playing the same character over and over, even though they were different characters. But before I started Ouroboros, I watched Mogura no Uta and was pleasantly surprised with his acting. It felt like he had broken down his acting wall. In Ouroboros, he surprises me with his acting choices, but it's wonderful and it works well.

I'm so proud of my dear boy. *tear sniffle*

It's also really awesome seeing him acting with Shun-kun. Sure, they don't have a lot of scenes together (for obvious reasons), but when they do, they have such great chemistry. Shun-kun also makes a fantastic yakuza. If I ever had to encounter a yakuza, I'd want it to be him.

Okay, that's enough Ouroboros flail. Hope you guys enjoy the episode, if you haven't already. Leave me a comment and tell me your favorite part of the series so far!

Ja ne!

Thank you for subbing Ouroboros, I'm enjoying to immensely. Shun and Toma are great in balancing the dark and light sides of their character. And did you notice the little kick Danno gave Ryuuzaki for arriving barely in time? I loved that.

Still, I have one more question: what was written on the paper that the chief handed to Hibino regarding Ryuuzaki's promotion?

Yes, I saw that part. XD

The paper just had Ryuuzaki's notice of transfer to the central bureau. In Japan, whenever someone is transferred, even if it's in school, there's always a notice like that.

Since they talked about it in the drama, I didn't see the need to translate the paper.

Episode 3 is awesome, it's getting better and they did something different than the manga, which I think is a good thing. I can't wait for episode 4! Thank yoU!

good luck on JET! Hope you get it!
what JLPT level are you?
Feb. 10th, 2015 05:50 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'll hear if I got in around April.

I'm JLPT N4 certified, but I think I could almost pass the N3 by now.
Feb. 10th, 2015 12:09 pm (UTC)
Please do let me know! And your placing!:)

ah, lucky >< I'm N3 certified, but I'm iffy about whether I could pass the N2, THUS I didn't take it two months ago. Which sucks, cause I JUST got back from my study-abroad then. Now, I'm thinking of taking it this upcoming year, so just right before graduation >< Hopefully I can pass, but still kinda iffy cause I'll have been back from study abroad for over a year and still not enough time to study ><'

I've been secretly shipping Shun and Toma lol XD

So whenever they meet, I'm always flailing. It's so rare to see the two characters together. So when I do, it's like a treat !

I really need to get back to being up to date on these dramas! Did you end up finishing it? Was it all extremely good?
