It's a shame people don't fansub BDs of older shows like Wataru more readily. The show's been subbed with .ass files, but it'd be more "watchable" in 720p.

.ass are external softsubs. You could always mux them with the BD raws (and make adjustments for timing if necessary)

That's assuming the subs were even worth that effort, I haven't really checked. Hell, I'm mostly interested in Wataru for its purely nostalgia-inducing opening.

Do the Gintama BDs and DVDs have English subs?

Let me see... (walks over to shelf)
Nope. Only Japanese subtitles. Which is somewhat surprising, considering a lot of my DVDs from Japan have NO subtitles at all.

Thanks for the info.
I'm pretty sure the film had international showings, so it must've been subbed, including in English for places like Singapore. It's too bad they couldn't pit those on the disks.

Interesting that Yozakura Quartet is pretty popular over there (enough to make the chart), and no one licensed it yet over here.

Yozakura's sales are mediocre at best. It only made the chart because sales this season are pretty dismal all around. And I'm not sure what else released that week, I think most shows released this week.

Yeah, "making the chart" is all relative to what's sold that week. If you have a terrible week, shows that only sold hundreds of copies will chart. Compared to a heavy weak, nothing under 5,000 may appear.

Sure, it would have been decent if the other volume's where doing just as good, but they aren't. It only got 3k~ sales because of the event ticket.

Making the top 20 chart in non-busy week means nothing. And any show that does not flop terribly(<500 BD's) will make the top 100 BD chart even on the very busy weeks(like the week from 23 to 30 December).
