Gyro: Quality Check, Typesetting, Timing, Encoding
Lord Starfish: Translation Check, Timing, Release Check
AxelStone007: Release Check
This isn’t the first time I’ve written a farewell Jojo message, nor will it be the last, but each time I do, I feel a renewed sense of sadness and relief as if it’s the first time I’ve done it all over again. Sadness that our work is done, but relief that we’ll be able to catch a bit of a break before beginning work on the blu-ray batch. For the last few weeks I’ve struggled to figure out what I would say here in this post, but it’s only now at 8:00 AM on August 8th after finishing editing episode 39 that I feel like I’ve finally found the words. As always, I cannot stress enough how much I appreciate the work of my fellow Some-Stuffs team members. Even above being a joy to work with, I consider them all best friends and some of the best people I’ve ever known. I would particularly like to thank Lord Starfish, JulesMFinWinnfield, and AxelStone007 for joining us on Part 5. Their contributions have helped push the quality of our subs higher than ever before, and for that I am extremely grateful. I would also be remiss not to thank longtime contributors Gyro and Xemnas for sticking around for the last 6+ years on Jojo. I say this every time, but you guys are awesome and I couldn’t do this without you.
I would also like to thank our viewers, old and new, for sticking with us through Golden Wind. Though it’s plain to see we aren’t releasing episodes as fast as we used to, Golden Wind marked the first time where we subbed a part of Jojo while all of us held down full time jobs. It’s been a challenging experience to say the least, but I’m proud of the work we’ve managed to put out without compromising our real life obligations. We’re more committed than ever to continue subbing Jojo, and I don’t see anything ever changing that. Though normally I would end things off by detailing our plans for the blu-ray batch, I’m going to wait a little bit to do that since I really want our plans to be known and not buried in my farewell message. So I suppose that’s it, then. A vast ocean stands between us and Part 6, but we hope we’ll see you all on the other side. Arrivederci.
