UPDATE:
Submitting the "Licensed by" information is no longer restricted to staff. You no longer need to use this thread; just submit the information yourself.



Post any anime that have been licensed and aren't marked as such in the encyclopedia here. This thread is only for adult (Porn/Hentai) titles licensed in North America.

When posting, please link to the title in the encyc, and a page that suggests / states that it is licensed.

ie:
Quote:
Ah! My Goddess TV licensed by Media Blasters / Anime Works
anime#3639
source: animenewsnetwork.com/article.php?id=6214
or even better (but not necessarry)
Quote:
Ah! My Goddess TV licensed by Media Blasters / Anime Works. source

Because the non-adult items are more of a priority.

Because of the split in the Licenses thread, should I transfer all of the adult entries in North American Licenses to this thread or only add new entries?

Before anyone tries to add info carelessly, I have to remind you that the job titles of staff credits are needed to be rewritten completely. I don't know whether you were simply following the credit roll on DVD or not, for they look like being translated by BabelFish.

"Capturing Director?" Sounds like "Director of Photography" to me. Rolling Eyes

I took the credit roll off one of the DVDs.

I took the time to post the information, a LOT of information, what ANN does with it is up to them. If they know that Capturing Director is Director of Photography, then they are welcome to change it. I put it in exactly as it was written in the end credit scroll, so shoot me.

I would hope that the person who does the database update would know what each job is. My guess is that this update will happen 2 months from now and the only info they use are the titles and the licensing info.

I usually don't bother with putting credits into the the database and have no interest and no clue as to what the various jobs are behind the scenes. I typed it up the exact way it was on the DVD. If it isn't right, contact JapanAnime, not me, and ask if THEY used Babel Fish or Nifty or Excite.

I thought I was providing useful information, evidently I was wrong. I'm so glad I spent my time doing it. I'll keep it in mind the next time I try to help the Anime community.

And saying they need to be "rewritten completely" is incorrect. There are only a few that would likely need to be figured out what they meant, like the one you posted, Recording Adjustments and Production Desk. Wow. 3 whole pieces obviously equate to "completely rewritten" when everything else is fine. Rolling Eyes

EDIT- it feels really nice to have someone on the Encyclopedia staff question me. If this is how you respond to people who are trying to help the site, I'd love to see how you treat the people who provide nothing.

Oh Lord, you are such a sensitive person. I was not blaming you. At all.

American licensors suck at credit rolls. Period. I don't know if their translators use BabelFish or whatever automated translation engine, but I've seen examples of ridiculous mistakes (crediting a seiyuu as the animation director) and less noticeable ones (same staff with his name spelled in onyomi in one episode and kunyomi in another). Sorry if my words were not friendly enough, for while I do appreciate users who spend their time retyping the credit roll into the Encyclopedia, many of the credits were mistaken by licensor/translators already, and I am often the person who has to clean up the mess.

Well, part of the reason why I posted the info here, rather than updating it myself (when the title is added I mean), was so that someone with a trained eye could look it over and see if there were any mistakes. I know I've got at least one mistype up there. None of the names are misspelled... or at least they all match the credit roll JA provided...

The majority of the actual JapanAnime staff, judging by names and not by anything else, appeared to all be of Asian/East Asian descent. IF English is their second language, perhaps they don't know the English equivalent? They certainly have more than their fair share of grammar and spelling mistakes in the subtitles, so I would say it is safe to assume they could certainly have screwed up the credits as well. Wink

Touche. Since most wouldn't even bother trying to post.

JapanAnime has licensedEdit: Note that "Enbou Taboo" should "Enbou"—"taboo" is merely used in place of "episode" or "chapter"; proof (search for "艶母").

Animac (from whom they've licensed all but The Gattsu!), Milky, and recently Five Ways (for some titles) are their sources. (Milky and Digital Works/Vanilla Series are the primary "battlegrounds" these days for American licensers of hentai.)

Speaking of JapanAnime and Five Ways, that in part reminds me—both Leatherman (the first four episodes) and Legend of the Black Eye - Kokudohoh (as "Kokudo Oh: The Black Eye King") are former licenses of NuTech Digital. Proof is here and here, respectively.
