Hakozume ep.01

A fun and entertaining pilot ep! I hope you enjoy XD
Some notes here:-

  • Kawai and Fuji address Igasaki as “Hako-cho” (Police Box Chief); I’ve translated it as “Box Chief”
  • This may be obvious, but PB is short for Police Box and HQ for Headquarters
  • The Showa era is from year 1962 to 1989
  • Shoot wresting is a combat sport, and Shoot style is a generic term used to describe a range of hybrid fighting techniques that originated in Japan in the late 1970s
  • Ukon is short for “Ukon no Chikara” (literally “the power of turmeric”), a popular drink in Japan said to aid digestion and prevent hangovers; many people drink it before alcohol consumption

    Great combination of drama and comedy. I am looking forward to the upcoming episodes. Thank you so much.

    P.S. I hope you don’t mind, but I posted about your subs on stage48.net where Nishino Nanase has a thread as a former member of Nogizaka46.

    lol i know they’re the ‘good guys’, but questioning without a lawyer is kinda shady. i mean, japan is diff, but still (also just makes me think of ace attorney being ridiculously hard with the conviction rates/guilty until proven innocent viewpoint)

    I laughed an inordinate amount at this episode, especially at the inspection part (everyone’s a riot!). Hope this gets better and better. Thank you for your work!

    at 9:47 there’s a little souvenir type thing of a samurai whose name is written as 斉藤一 next to it, but it seems like it’s actually referring to 斎藤一? both kanji are joyo kanji though… what’s up with that?
