DOUBLE SERIES FINALE! Beyblade 51 + Let's & Go!! 50-51

Yep, that's right. With this release, both series are done.

Now all that's left is the wait for the complete batches. Knowing us it might take a while to get them done, but hopefully you'll bear with us just a little more.

We've got some plans for next year and some other stuff to talk about, but I'll leave that for a separate post I'll make after the year ends.

Yume no Crayon Oukoku - 01

Hey there.

A while back, I was asking myself about what series I should take on as my own project under SquareSubs—it needed to be something I liked, something relatively unknown, and preferably something from the 90s, so as to fit in with the rest of our subgroup's portfolio. After having watched Ojamajo Doremi over the summer (thanks, Doremi Fansubs!), I found out about a little show called Yume no Crayon Oukoku (literally 'The Crayon Kingdom of Dreams') that aired right before it, which was handled and created by mostly the same staff. Immediately interested, I sat out to look for it.

While the show picked up popularity in France thanks to its French dub, it never made it to a wider Western audience until recently, when a kind guy who goes by Leupho started subbing it by re-translating it from the French dub. I asked for his permission to take over by translating directly from the raws, and he agreed, saying he wants the anime to be accessible to "the widest audience possible". Given his blessing, I started work on the first episode in pseudo-secret, and here we are a few weeks later. Special thanks to this guy, because I wouldn't be doing it otherwise.

SquareAnon agreed with my choosing to sub it, and will be serving as my primary editor for this series as it is my first time being the lead/initial translator for our subs. I will be going through each episode for a second editing pass before posting it, but if you notice any issues, please let me know; most of this is being done on my own, so it's possible that there are things I've overlooked.  

This will not have a large impact on the other shows we are currently subbing and plan to sub due to the fact that our translation work runs parallel. Don't worry about that.

With all of that said, here's the episode:

Beyblade 49-50 + Let's & Go!! 48-49

Yes, yes. Late post, I'm sorry.
Men in tights

Beyblade 49
Beyblade 50

Let's & Go!! 48
Let's & Go!! 49

Beyblade and Let's & Go!! Two great series, and now we're close to the ending for both of them. Many have asked if we're going to work on the following seasons (2002 and WGP respectively) and many answer to both is YES! (probably)

However, as I said many times in the past, the next series on our schedule is Dash!! Yonkuro, so we will be doing that one first. We might be able to do Beyblade 2002 at the same time (no promises though) because the kind folks at Hoshi no Yume will be once again assisting us with the translations.
