The release of Ghost in the Shell II: Innocence on DVD (my brief review here) infuriated some fans. There wasn’t any English dubbing made of the film, and the only availble releases with English subtitles were near-unacceptable. The Japanese release’s subtitles was immensely incomprehensible -its the copy that I have- while the only other release with English subtitles was for the hearing-impaired, where you’d see lines like loud explosion, crowd whispers.
- Download Media Player Classic.
- Download the subtitles from subtitles.ro. The subtitles are usually in archived format, so extract the .srt file to your hard disk. Inspect the file if its comprehensible; you can use Notepad to open the file and read it.
- Launch Media Player Classic, go to File -> Open DVD, and wait until your movie is loaded. Once loaded, go to File -> Load Subtitle, and enjoy the movie 😉
I’m assuming this is already a normal strategy for anime fans, though.
