The final Medarot batch is almost ready!

Yep, you read that right! We're currently applying the last fixes and edits to the last 13 episodes of MEDAROT; then we'll do a quick consistency check on all the other eps and then the [40-52] batch AND the complete series pack will be ready to be uploaded! 

I'm really sorry for the long wait. 
In the next few days we'll be focusing exclusively on Medarot, and after that we'll go back to Beyblade and Let's & Go!!

Beyblade 18 - 19

This is an average Beyblader of color.
Yep, Beyblade episode 18 and episode 19 are out. Shit's about to go down in America.

I'll try to get Let's & Go!! ready in a couple of days, it's a really good ep too.

Beyblade 16 - 17 + Let's & Go!! 16 - 17 - 18

What the fuck, I haven't posted in a whole month? Fucking hell. Sorry guys. I'm a terrible blogger. 
Well, I'll just post the links:

We're still looking for someone to edit/QC the last 13 episodes of Medarot, please let us know if you're interested.

Beyblade 15 + Let's & Go!! 15

Rei is pissed.
Having two translators is GREAT! Thanks to that, Beyblade 15 and Let's & Go!! 15 are out so close to each other.

Also, an important announcement about Medarot
Basically the reason why the final batch has been delayed so much is because we were waiting for our usual editor/QC to come through (he's the same guy who edited the previous batches and his work was top notch). Unfortunately after months of waiting, he's still MIA so we decided to give up on him (we miss you, Porky). 
And here's the point: if you have watched our subs for Medarot feel like helping out with the editing/QC of the last 13 episodes of the series, please let us know. We need someone who knows what to fix and how to keep consistency with the rest of the series.

Beyblade 14

Tsundere Kai is best Kai.
Another late update, but Beyblade 14 has been out for the last couple of days.

Monday, October 31, 2016

Let's & Go!! 14

Poor Dad, he just wants to play with his Mini 4W-- I mean with his sons...
Yup, Let's & Go!! 14 is out. 
Feels good having a backup translator. This way I can work on an episode while he is working on another.

Also I realized I forgot to post the link for Beyblade 13, which came out ages ago. Sorry about that.

Let's & Go!! 13 + First Batch (1-13) + Some news

Wow what the fuck am I doing with this blog?
Anyway, Let's & Go!! 13 has been out for quite a while. 

Today we also bring you the first batch torrents (MEGA links will come soon) for the series. These files use the newly acquired BD rips so they're better quality than the ones we had before. You can choose between:
As you can see, the difference in quality is huge, I suggest you all download these if you like Let's & Go!!
The Beyblade batch should follow soon, probably by the end of next week. 

I've been pretty busy with my studies so I've barely subbed anything in the last few weeks, unfortunately this isn't going to change any time soon. Still, I'll try to get back to subbing at least one episode per week starting next week. 
If anyone that knows Jap is interested in joining as TL to cover for me, please let me know. 

I forgot to mention one thing: the squaresubs.xyz domain we had has expired (thanks Maxine for paying for it last year, we miss you!) so we'll be using the normal address (which changed to squaresubs.blogspot.com) from now on. I might buy a new domain in the future but I'm not sure if it's worth it.

Let's & Go!! 11 - 12

Why does Fighter have female versions of his suit? Very suspicious...
Holy shit I didn't realize I haven't updated the blog in 3 weeks, what the fuck. 
Sorry about that.

Anyway, yep Let's & Go!! 11 AND 12 are both out on nyaa. 
I've been pretty busy these last few days so I'll only be able to sub the 13th episodes for both this and Beyblade next week.

Oh yeah, great news! We've acquired the BDRips for this series so starting from the first batch we will offer 480p and 720p versions of each episode! 

Saturday, September 10, 2016

Beyblade 12

Beyblade is serious business
Beyblade 12 is up on nyaa, go grab it!

In the next two weeks both Beyblade and Let's & Go!!'s subs will reach episode 13. After that we might take a small break from subbing new episodes while we get the first batch for each series ready.

Saturday, September 3, 2016

Let's & Go!! 10

Hell yeah, motherfucker
Yep, Let's & Go!! 10 is up on nyaa

Also, we're currently looking for fast QC/Script Editors
If you're interested and available hit us up in the comments, at squarefoldericons@gmail.com or on our Discord channel https://discord.gg/011gqAnXimzi0Z458

Beyblade 11

Yes! 1.44 MB of porn...
Here we are again.
Bakuten Shoot Beyblade 11 is up on nyaa.

For those of you asking for MEGA links for the last 13 Medarot episodes, we're still working on the final batch so I ask you to wait a bit more (I know you've already waited for a log time) so you will be able to enjoy the best possible version of those episodes.

Beyblade 10 + Let's & Go!! 09

Jun is adorable. There, I said it.
Yes, I'm late (again), sorry about that.
At this point, you're better off just looking at nyaa because for a reason or the other I always forget to post the links here too. I'll try to remember from now on (for real).

Anyhow, Beyblade 10 and Let's & Go!! 09 are both up on nyaa. Enjoy!

Unrelated but, should I be worried? I'm kinda scared right now...

Let's & Go !! 08

Quick update; episode 8 is up on nyaa. 
These days I've been quite busy (I didn't even have time to find an amusing screenshot from the ep). Hopefully things will change starting next week.

Beyblade 9

I call dibs on Mao
Late as usual, I'm sorry.
Please Mr. >>14519386 don't fire me!
Yes, Beyblade 9 has been out for a couple of days now, if you still haven't downloaded it now's the time.

Beyblade 8 + Let's & Go!! 6 - 7

They see me ridin', they hatin'
I must be the worst blogger ever.

Go grab Beyblade 8, Let's & Go!! 6 and Let's & Go!! 7 if you haven't already!

Unfortunately no concrete news about the last Medarot batch yet, but things are looking good. It might come relatively soon. I know many of you have waiting for a long time and I'm sorry, we're doing the best we can to bring you the best version of Medarot we can. Please understand.

Oh yeah, we've gotten hold of new raws for Beyblade and they look MUCH better than the ones we had until now, I'm sure you'll notice the difference right away.

Let's & Go!! 5 + Beyblade 7

This scene was deleted in the Italian broadcast
I always forget to update this blog. Sorry about that.

Anyways, in the last week we released both the fifth Let's & Go!! episode and the seventh Beyblade episode so go grab them!

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Bakuten Shoot Beyblade 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6

>have enormous power

>give it to a kid with a spinning top
The Sacred Beasts need to get their priorities straight.
Hey there. Here are the fifth and sixth episode of Beyblade! 

As you may (or may not) know, this project is brought to you not just by us but also (and mainly) by Hoshi no Yume, who subbed the first four episodes (which you can find here: ep 1, ep 2, ep 3, ep 4) and is also subbing Beyblade Burst among other series. They're also the ones providing the raws, so yeah a big thanks to them. 
If you're a fan of kids shouting at their tops to make them spin faster, you should definitely check out their blog and their subs because they know their stuff, way more than us.

From episode 5 to episode 39 the subs will be mostly done by us with help from HnY, while the last 12 episodes will be done by Hoshi no Yume. 
We hope there won't be any major inconsistencies but if you find any do let us know so we can fix them in time for the first batch.

Let's & Go!! 2-3-4

Jirōmaru reluctantly complies.
Sorry I kind of disappeared, between exams and what not I've been quite busy these past few weeks but that's almost over now. 

That doesn't mean we didn't go forward with our subs, so here are episodes 2, 3 and 4 of Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go!!

Thursday, May 19, 2016

Bakuten Shoot Beyblade 1 + Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go!! 1 + Some news

Ok so in the Beyblade raws we have the frames are interlaced 
during scene changes, whatever. What's weird is that the Professor on 
the left doesn't appear in the previous OR in the next frame! Spooky...
Took some time but the first episodes of both new series are ready (and have been for a couple days already). 
Beyblade 1 (and subs fix)
Let's & Go!! 1

I think Let's & Go is going to take more time to sub than average because of all the techincal terms and whatnot I'm not really expert about, at least for these first few episodes.

Also I have some news for you:
Turns out another sub group, Hoshi no Yume (you might know them for their Beyblade Burst subs), was already subbing Bakuten Shoot Beublade. Long story short, we decided to do Beyblade as a joint project with them. 
This shouldn't make any big difference except maybe higher quality subs and more frequent releases. Actually, since I decided to go ahead and sub both Beyblade and Let's & Go!! at the same time, this partnership should help fill the gaps for Beyblade for when I'm subbing Let's & Go!!

Medarot Third Batch (27-39)

I guess most of you already know this but we've finally released the third Medarot batch, the one with episodes 27 to 39. Torrent MEGA

As for our new series, unfortunately we can't really do anything until we get a new profreader so I'll ask again: if anybody wants to help please let us know.

SquareSubs' next series

I've already written about this elsewhere so I figured I should make a post here as well.

Now that Medarot is finished (the final batches will be done SOON™ I promise), it's time to start working on the next show. As I've already said, the choice was between Red Baron, Medarot Damashii, Bakuten Shoot Beyblade and Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go!!
For Red Baron, Raws are pretty much impossible to find so I gave up on it (I tried downloading the Italian dub but it's tuck at 53% and I don't think that will change anytime soon).
Medarot Damashii, many Medarot fans asked for it but, as I had been told previously, the series is just not as good as the fist season so I'm sorry but I'll have to pass on that.
Finally the choice reduced to Let's & Go!! and Beyblade. I loved both shows a lot and watching the first episodes raw I noticed they're both relatively easy language-wise so I decided to go with these. 

Since I'm still not totally sure which series to work on first, I'm currently working on both at once. I finished the draft for the first Let's & Go!! episode a couple of days ago and I'm currently working on the first ep of Beyblade. 
I wouldn't mind doing both at once to the end but that would mean that each series would take twice the time to complete so I'd like to hear your opinions about it.

More importantly, we're in need of a new proofreader to help my horrible subs (no pun intended) become readable, so if you feel like helping out please let us know.

Medarot Series Finale (Episodes 51 - 52)

Here are the last two episodes of this wonderful series.
I said it before, but this has been a great journey and I'm really sad to see it end.

I want to take this occasion to thank all the good people who helped us and supported us all this time.
First of all, thanks to my irrepleaceable team members:

  • Maxine and Shocker for their fast proofreading. They made my unreadable mess into a quality script.
  • Migon for the great work on the muxed mkv files with proper fonts, timing and subs.
  • Porkiepyne for the wonderful edits to the scripts for the v2 subs you can find in the batches.

Also I want to thank Kimble who helped me out a lot in the beginning by pointing me in the right direction and telling me about the Medarot Wikia which was really useful for getting the names of the various Medarots, Parts and techniques right (so thanks to the curators of that site as well).
Finally, I want to give my thanks to all those who commented and downloaded our subs. Knowing there are people who appriciate our work made us want to give our best. Thank you. 
And of course thank to /m/ for sticking with me from the beginning.

However, our subbing days will continue. While Migon and Porkiepyne are hard at work to release the final batches (yes there will be a complete batch with the whole series), I'm going to take a look at the candidates for our next show. They are:

  • Bakusou Kyoudai Let's Ad Go!!
  • Bakuten Shoot Bey Blade
  • Red Baron
  • Medarot Damashii

What I'm going to do is: Watch the first episodes for each to see if they're doable with my level of Japanese; Look for related info (wikias and the like) that might help me sub the show; Check if any of the shows have had a dub that is faithful enough to use when I meet some lines that I'm not sure how to render in English. 
If you're interested in any of these series and have some useful links or resources to share, let me know.

Since we may need another proofreader for our next series, if you're intereseted in joining hit us up! Also I definitely wouldn't mind adding another translator to our gang since I'm far from perfect and I can always use a second opinion when translating.

Forgive the wall of text, I promise you won't be seeing one of these here often.

Episode 50

Victor's eyebrows have reached rage level 9.
This episode marks both the, huh, 50th episode of this series and the 50th episode brought to you by the ragtag group of misfit fansubbers known as Squaresubs!

In other news, yup only two episode to the end! I can't believe it.

Also the third minibatch (episodes 27-39) is almost ready, and the fourth and last batch should follow shortly after.
After that we'll check over the whole series once more, fix everything there is to fix, and release the complete batch.

Episode 49

Ready to rumble!
Lead editor here.

I'd say this is one of my favourite Medarot episodes (if not my number one). So as not to spoil anything, I'll let you experience it for yourself.

Episode 49


Tuesday, April 5, 2016

Episodes 46 - 47 - 48

Who will win the Ari Kabowl? Cast your votes!
Sorry again again. 
Well, it's not a big deal I think. At this point I figure whoever wants to follow the subs just looks for them on nyaa anyway. Still, forgive my forgetfulness.

Anyway, here are episodes 46, 47 and 48
I can't believe we're this close already. It feels like yesterday that I subbed that first episode (okay maybe not yesterday but definitely not 6 months ago)...

Monday, March 21, 2016

Episodes 44 & 45

Sorry again. I forgot to make a post here when I uploaded ep 44
So here it is together with episode 45!

We're getting closer and closer to the end of this series. It's been a wonderful journey and I hope all of you had as much fun watching as I had subbing it!

Monday, March 14, 2016

Episode 43

Reminded me of this
Episode 43 is ready! 
Prepare yourself for some Kikuhime cuteness(?).

About the 27-39 batch, our usual editor is busy these days so we're not sure when it will be ready. 
Sorry for the inconvenience. We promise it will be worth the wait when it's finally ready.

Thursday, March 10, 2016

Episode 41 & 42

As a general rule, do NOT piss off Metabee.
Sorry, guys.
I didn't realize that I forgot to make a post about episode 41, so this is both for that and episode 42.

Sunday, February 28, 2016

Episode 40

Gee, I wonder what country these guys are representing...
While we work on the third mini-batch, here's episode 40, where the World Championship finally begins.

A couple of notes: 
as you will notice during this episode, turns out the 'World Championship' is actually a 'World Cup' and the canon transliteration for ロボトル is not 'Robattle' but 'Robotol'. 
We've decided to stick with our own version of these words for the sake of consistency, but we will probably change them to the official ones for the final batch. I hope you'll understand.

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Episodes 38 & 39

You can fly? You can fly!
Sorry for the delay on episode 38 (though I guess many of you already got the torrent directly from nyaa). Anyway, here's episode 39, which concludes both this arc and the third (of four) parts of this series. 
Also, since it has been reported that there wa a slight sync problem with the subs for episodes 37 and 38, I suggest you download this, which contains a fixed version of the .ass files for both episodes. Sorry for the inconvenience.

In the next days we will be focusing on fixing the episodes from 27 to 39 and preaparing the third mini-batch.

Sunday, February 21, 2016

Episode 37

My pals on /m/ probably already know, but episode 37 is up on nyaa.

Also, ep 38 is about finished too, so I'll be posting the link to the torrent in the next couple hours.

Episode 36

The tension never lets up! Here's episode 36.

As usual, tell us if you find anything wrong with the subs! We're also available at #squaresubs@irc.rizon.net for questions and comments!

Monday, February 15, 2016

Episode 35

Here's episode 35
Do you like Ikki's mom?
Ikki's mom is really adorable.

As some of you may have noticed, I had already uploaded the torrent to nyaa yesterday but since the site's been down for many hours I decided to wait for it to come back up.

Friday, February 12, 2016

Episode 34

Turns out Karin is a heartless pyromaniac. I love it.
Here's episode 34!

As always tell us if you find anything wrong with these subs.

Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Episode 33

Here's episode 33.

Ok so, may have asked me if I am going to sub Medarot Damashii (known in the West as Medabots Spirits) after I finish the first season. I feel like I have to give an answer to this:

I had no intenetion to in the beginning, mostly because I had heard multiple times that Damashi is overall a worse series the the first and it changes various things (characters, animation quality, general feel, etc). For now I still am not sure if I will sub it, but let's say my answer changed from "no" to "we'll see". 
So after I finish the fist series I'll check out Damashii and see if it's really that bad and decide from there.
In any case, as I said when I started, after Medarot I first plan to sub Bakusou Kyoudai Let's and Go!!, so if you want to see us sub Damashii, you'll have to wait for awhile anyway.

I hope this will answer your questions. That said, these plans may change in the future and I can't make any promises.

Friday, February 5, 2016

Episode 32

Mr. Tenryou is a really lucky man...
Here is ep 32!
Who could be hiding behind the mask of the Space Medarotter X?

As usual, report to us if you find anything wrong.

Saturday, January 30, 2016

Episode 31

Here's ep 31

Nothing much to say this time, so just enjoy the episode and as usual tell us if you find anything wrong with the subs!

Monday, January 25, 2016

Episode 30

This drill is the drill that will pierce the Heavens!
We're finally back, this time with episode 30!

As I said on nyaa, I've had some busy times but I should be able to get more stable releases from here onward, at least until my university courses kick in.

As always you are more than welcome to report us if you find anything wrong with the subs!

Sunday, January 17, 2016

Episode 29

>draw a snowman
>call it a snow-woman
Here we go again. Here's episode 29, a chill episode for these chill days.

As always, if you find anything wrong of if you have any kind of question or comment, hit us up either here, on nyaa, or at #squaresubs@irc.rizon.net!

Episode 28 + Second Minibatch

Oh shit, he's back.
Episode 28 is here
I hope you're ready for Medarot: Shokugeki no Souma edition.

Also, some of you may already have seen it, but we finally have the torrent for the second minibatch. This pack includes episodes from 14 to 26, with every fix and enhancement we could bring. You could say it's the best version of those episode yet.

Friday, January 8, 2016

Episode 27

We're finally back with a new episode!
This time it's episode 27.

What the fuck happened?!

We're still hard at work to release the second minibatch, so hold on to your butts!
