The scenario would be almost always too familiar with any anime fan. You’re holding kick-butt DVDs of the latest releases, but find out later that they have the most terrible fan subtitles that you’re probably better off deciphering it yourself than giving your brain a meltdown with bad grammar, loads of spelling errors, and just plain incromphensibility.
- 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 voila!
The only other requirement here is that, of course, you do need a DVD drive on your PC.
Feel the need to have cheap fun? Intentionally use the wrong subtitles for your chosen anime, or any DVD movie spoken in a foreign-language-you-don’t-understand. Haven’t done it myself, so for anyone who’d entertain the idea and actually does it, tell me how it goes.
