Hello!! Long-time reader, first-time poster, I'm sure you know the drill...

 

I'll just get down to it: I can't be the only one that's been dying to watch the Tamagotchi (2009-2015) anime from start to finish for years, but can't seem to find a single source for subtitled episodes, or even raw episodes anywhere online (yeah, there's a couple episodes here and there, but no one seems to have all 271 episodes).

 

I think the main reason all requests and attempts to have the anime subtitled have fizzled out is because of the lack of a single, high-quality source that can provide them to those who could make it happen.

 

Well, I've decided to take matters into my own hands here: I've ordered the first 35 DVDs that make up the 'Tamagotchi!' anime, which include the first 143 episodes of the series, and I'm already making arrangements to get 'Yume Kira Dream', 'Miracle Friends', and 'Go-Go Tamagotchi!' DVDs (as well as the un-dubbed movies) some time before June. I have the necessary (region-unlocking) tools to rip these DVDs in order to get the raw, high quality episodes and share them.

With this in mind, once I gather all of these files together, do you think there could finally be hope in requesting a complete English fansub of the series from a subbing group?
Or possibly, do you think we could try and make one ourselves? I sure as heck couldn't do translations, but I can do some of the more technical things, which is why I'm here in the first place I guess.

 

In any case, I hope doing this will bring some semblance of hope to anyone like me that's still holding onto hope for ever watching this show, I'll keep you posted as my packages come in!

 

:wub:

That'd be wonderful! I personally can't sub but I do have a great passion in learning languages, maybe I could start down that path and assist once I get my bearings? O: I'm certain there are others who would love to help, haha. Good luck with the technical aspects!

I'm quadlingual but Asian language are not my forte, but I'll support you and your findings.

I appreciate your goal and your grit and effort to get this together. :wub:

This is a good idea.

Some time ago I've seen that somebody commissioned a translator to sub one of the episodes of the anime, so how about we make a fundraiser to commission a subbing group?

That sounds like a great idea!! I'll have to do a bit more research on the actual process of requesting a thing to be subbed/what our financial goal would look like in terms of commissioning 271 episodes, I'll try to have some sort of blog up for this 'project' and some vague list of what's needed by the time I have the discs

How are the raw files going? Would also be interested in the project.

Sorry for the late reply! I'll give a bit of an update on all the progress so far -

 

  • All the DVDs have arrived (except for the 2 feature-length movies and the 1 short movie that came bundled with the Cocotama movie), this also includes the 3 OVAs released by McDonalds

  • I have completely finished ripping the first series, Tamagotchi! and have all the individual episodes (143) saved on my external drive

  • One of the Yume Kira Dream discs was glitched, so I've ordered a replacement copy of the first 4 episodes, other than that, the remaining episodes 148-192 have been ripped and and saved on my drive

  • I am finishing up Miracle Friends while I type this (episodes 193-221), and right after that I will begin ripping GO-GO Tamagotchi!

I'm going to make another thread later about the crowdfunding for the translation group, once I have a more concrete agreement settled regarding the rates (this is a pretty big series and a pretty big task!)

 

Anyway, just wanted to pop back in and say this project isn't on hold, it's just getting started, so stay tuned! :wub:

      Hello, I am Deru-sama, AKA Dale8998. I have a plan to make an abridged anime containing all 400 episodes. 😀
       
      However, I need voice actors. You can't have an abridged anime just by cutting up an episode and calling it finished, you have to slap in a bunch of jokes. (For example, Goku squeaking whenever he's crushed in someone's hands during a TFS episode, or Tea being a kleptomaniac in YGOTAS.)
      Here's the questions:
      1. How old are you? (I need you to be 13 or older, because I'm going for a PG-13 audience in order to keep myself from getting COPPA banned. If you don't want to say, just give a range.)
      2. Do you have any experience with voice acting? (If you do, it's a bonus, but first-time actors are fine too.)
      3. What time zone are you in?
      4. When are you available? I try to get one upload a week, but I can do it more slowly or quicker depending on when you're available.
      5. YouTube link?

      My best friend and I loved both the Tamagotchi! anime series and the Let's Go! Tamagotchi short episodes and we watched all of them more than once.  Tamagotchi The Movie was absolutely incredible and we both adored it. However, when we watched Yume Kira Dream, we both didn't really get into it as much as we had with the other two. Don't get me wrong, I still think it was a good show but there was just something about it that was different from the original Tamagotchi! anime. I'm going to watch it again and see whether it's better the second time round.   What did you guys think of Yume Kira Dream?

      I was just wondering; does anybody here have the following episodes dubbed in English?
      1. Watch Out! Anpan Detective is Here! (episode 9, part 1)
      2. Stop it Right There! Thief Papillon! (episode 9, part 2)
      3. KuroMametchi Finds His Coolness (with the opening scene and the full "Bread and Milk Dance" scene)
      4. Is He a Myth? The Kuchipatchi of Truth (episode 26, part 1)
      If you have or remember anything about them, please tell me (send a link if you have them)! I would greatly appreciate it if you do! 😄

      This translation wouldn't be possible with awesome fans like all of you! I'm so happy we're here already
