Virgin release: Aria the Origination Drama CD1 Navigation 01 - A warm cruise in a freezing night


And so, this is the first release of Tortoise Fansubs.

I've decided to go with subbing something that nobody else will bother to touch in a hundred years, instead of joining in the oversubbing of the current season.

In case you ask what a drama cd is, a drama cd is an audio narration of a story, kind of like the anime itself but without the video. These are of course sold in audio cd form. Usually they are very interesting side-stories that serve to spice up the main series. If you want the drama cds itself, hop over to #nipponsei and download the mp3s from their xdcc bots. Or better yet, buy them.

Currently the timing, typesetting and encode is handled by TBA-chan from kiss fans. I'm looking for all kind of staffs to help.

The scripts:
TL script
Timed script

Oh, thank you very much for fansubbing this. Translated drama CDs are almost nonexistent, so I really appreciate your effort.

Thank you for "subbing" this drama cd!! It's great for any Aria fan to listen to stuff which is normally not accessable for non-japanese speakers.
