Beast Wars Neo with English (Fan) Subtitles Coming in 2019

Karyuudo Fansubs (the anime fansubbing group that has previously provided the Transformers fandom with complete English subtitled releases of Car Robots, Zone, Micron Densetsu, Beast Wars Second and its movie, the Beast Wars Metals movie, and Scramble City) has announced their next English subtitled release of another Japanese Transformers series. It is none other than the long-awaited Beast Wars Neo!

Full announcement below:


Coming in Late 2018, the final chapter of the Japanese Beast Wars saga, Beast Wars Neo, will be released by Karyuudo Fansubs with English Subtitles.

Q&A

Q: Why will this take so long to complete?
A: Like everyone else in the world, we have families, jobs and lives outside of subtitling. As with our other releases, we take our time to ensure you're receiving the best and most accurate translation possible.


Q: Don't you have a more accurate release date?
A: Unfortunately not at this time. We're projecting a late 2018 release to factor in life commitments since that usually pushes our time frame back. Any questions on "when will this be done" will be politely ignored. :)


Q: Why not release the episodes as you complete them?
A: With many series, there are themes and terms that are covered over many episodes and sometimes disappear and pop up later on. Sometimes we find ourselves going back to alter a translation to ensure the story makes sense and flows smoothly. In the end it's better to complete all the episodes and feel 100% satisfied that we're translating the dialogue as it was intended.


Q: Do you require any additional assistance in regards to grammar, timing scripts, etc?
A: Thank you, but we're covered on all areas for this project.


Q: Will you charge for this?
A: No. We do this simply because we love Transformers, and want to see this long awaited series completed.

Bonus Q&A
Q: "I guess you guys beat me to the punch! Congrats on finishing Beast Wars 2! I would like to help in ANY way to finish Beast Wars Neo if I can by contributing the first 10 subbed scripts that I have..."
A: Since August of 2016, we've seen several comments come in such as this one above where individuals are offering to help complete Beast Wars Neo. To this date, we haven't seen one person actually complete this series. We could make several assumptions, that they got busy, bored, or were simply trying to get access to our resources in order to take credit for contributing to the release in some way. Let's be honest here, if you can translate 10 episodes of a series accurately by yourself, then you can easily translate the other 25 episodes in no time without our help. :)

A small update has been given about this release.

Very small.

After much deliberation, it has been decided by Karyuudo Fansubs that their subtitles will be utilizing the particular spelling of the name of the Maximal cobra that has been presumed to be his intended name all along: "Colada".

As opposed to using the nonsensical and phonetically-inaccurate spelling of "Cohrada" that the Beast Wars Sourcebook went with.

At last! It's happening! I need to get on and watch BWII now. And Micron Densetsu. And Galaxy Force. And Car Robots. Not Superlink though, I have some standards.

Small progress report from Kary:
Well folks, just to give everyone a small update here... we've reached the 1/2 way point on the episodes being 100% translated. Hopefully we'll keep up this momentum and be done before the years end. Please look forward to Beast Wars Neo, and thank you for your patience! :)

Status report: There's been an unfortunate delay in the release.

Hey Karyuudo Fans,

Many of you have been anticipating the release of Beast Wars Neo since we announced it earlier this year. We wanted to give you an update since it's now getting closer to the end of 2018.

Unfortunately, we've had several set backs over the past few months, due to unforeseen circumstances, such as work, family commitments, and health (ie: our translator Taka-chan had pneumonia and was out of commission for some time). Given this, we'll ultimately have to push the release into 2019. We don't have an exact date yet, but we will provide an update shortly before the release date.

At this point in time, we've completed 21 episodes out of 35, so we've still got a good number to go. We realize that many of you were looking forward to having a release date before the end of 2018, however, given the current time it takes to complete a translation of each episode, we don't believe this will be possible.

We really appreciate everyone's understanding and support over the years for our projects. Our team always aims to give the fans out there the best possible translation. For the Transformers community, this is something we've all waited almost 20 years to see translated into English. Our team is committed to ensuring you're delivered what we've promised.

While you're waiting for our release, you may want to pre-order that Big Convoy re-issue to support Takara-Tomy. Or possibly start picking up some other Beast Wars Neo toys on the second hand market before the prices may go up!

For now, here are some screen captures from each of the episodes we've complete thus far.

Thank you again!
Karyuudo
